Thread: .: Rules :.

Started by: LuzbelLuzbel

I don't think cementing blanket rules over an entire series is going to be a lot of fun.

I speedrun as a hobby, the last thing I want to be involved with is a bunch of dumb paperwork when something new (that possibly ignores any of these rules) is found and I have to contact every single runner of the game I'm running and make a forum post and have people vote and.. etc etc.

For me, speedrunning is about fun, I understand there's a competitive side to it that wants to ban foul play, and rightfully so, but we've operated on good faith for so long that I don't really see any point to turn every community decision related into bureaucracy. Also people can tell if there's been tampering most of the time, even if it shows up late, so I'm not really worried myself.

Also outside of the timing/community decisions there doesn't seem to be anything new to me, which is good. It shows the current system of letting each community decide how their speedgame is ran works.

I don't think you can classify FFSpeedruns as a blanket government that should rule over all the FFs, each game is their own community, we come together because we share love of the series; but our rules and the ways we run our games are all vastly different. Even when just coming from FF7 to 8/9 or 10.

Outside of that I don't believe any single game (nor series) has any bureacratic form as described above nor did they ever require it, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on that one, though.

Also, if we would go JP timing I think we should revolutionize and allow turbo, as well.

Might I inquire as to why Alundra was cut?

Too long? Too awesome?

I know Deertier.com is the home for Super Metroid runs; but is it possible to create it on Speedrun.com as well? The integrated Livesplit functionality beats manually updating Deertier everytime. Besides it's a game I run I'd like to register in my profile.

Thanks.
