Thread: Akki’s 16 Star Run Can’t Be Real... Right?

Started by: IDoGamesGoodIDoGamesGood

I casually checked speedrun.com this morning and saw Drozdowsky got the 16 star record by a couple milliseconds. “Cool, well deserved,” I thought to myself, and I just went on with my day. Then I checked again this afternoon, and I saw Akki DESTROYED the record with a 15:08. That seems extremely sketchy. A category that went from 15:24 to 15:17 in around two years couldn’t have gone from 15:16 to 15:08 in a matter of days. Also, there are some stars that I’m 99.9% sure are not in the route, and no controller input or voice recording add to my suspicion. If he legitimately got the time, good for him, but who knows if it’s a compilation of decent single star segments or not at this point? We know he got caught recording a 15:22 run only halfway through, and even if that was an honest mistake, this past action just builds upon the sketchiness of this record. If people could deeply analzyze this run to confirm or deny my assumption, that would be helpful.
sorry for this being so long, I just can’t belive that this may or may not be real.

When the rules mention SMB2, does that mean Lost Levels (or SMB2J) or the American release of SMB2? If it’s the latter, that means I won’t be able to run the category... please answer ASAP!

Yeah I know, but I just don’t have the motivation right now to do that category. I’m focusing on doing some Rocket runs right now, and I have a bad 5:24 All Easy run that has video, but I won’t submit because time save is easy.

Welp, Bat demolished the record, so I won’t be going for it anymore. Instead I’m gonna grind other categories to scoop a world record for myself.

Thanks to both of you! It’s gonna be challenging to get the right timing and luck, but I know I can do it.

I am new to the speed running community, and was doing some attempts of Challenges 1-10, and after only 11 attempts, I got a 1:48.06, less then a second off of WR!! ARRGH! No video, but hopefully I’ll get it soon.
