FAQ

How do I join?
All you need to join is a SpeedRunsLive account, then you're ready to go!
It's recommended to join the discord so you know exactly when the race room opens.
Keep in mind that SRL has rules, so it's best to read them carefully.

How do I join SpeedRunsLive (SRL)?
@Legs made a super duper guide for joining SRL,
it's easy to understand and follow.
You can check it out HERE.

Do I need to join the discord?
You don't need to join the discord to participate,
but to vote on the next games, and to get our super cool emojis,
you indeed need to join in on the action.
It's also recommended to join to get updates in real time,
for example if a race gets delayed.
https://discord.gg/NncPJKy

Can I request X to be raced?
If it can get a speedrun.com leaderboard, it's fine by us.
Although keep in mind that we try to prioritize availability,
so games that can be emulated and/or are free are more likely to appear.

I mean SRL still is the most popular and easiest way to organize large scale races.

Until a discord bot integrated with Livesplit or some other timer is definitively finished (ZSR is working on one and has it ready for testing) then SRL is really the only option.

if youre planning to do a second tournament, more pc games would probably get you more participant. I'm sure a lots of user out there love the concept but doesn't like emulator / console gaming that much

we do incorporate voting systems into our races (which we hold a new race every week) and we have PC games in the pool, but we do try to keep it to games anyone can have access to, so normally free games or emulated games. but there are PC games in the mix for people to vote for. (also, your picture and name are SUUUPPPPPPEEERRRR)

We got so far 4 system categories. When we got a bigger suggested game pool, we will split these. We do short to medium length races so people have time to learn the game, even those like me who only got an average of 30min free time a day.

Current system categories:
PC & PS1
Sega
Nintendo consoles
Nintendo handhelds

I wouldn't consider any of the listed games obscure, maybe Mole Mania. Glad to see races organized. If I had time on Sundays, I'd join this.

@SpiderSponge Yes, they're available to pretty much everyone and are (usually) free,
so they're pretty much perfect.

Next Week

The Game for Week 6 is a personal favourite of mine: Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae (Leaderboard)
Any% Easy will be run - if you're interested, it's an about 15-20m run that's easy to learn, but hard to gain time on.
It's available for PC via Steam and Humble Bundle (or drm-free on GOG), PS4 & XBOXOne and costs around 10 bucks.

As this is a game that's gotta be bought to play we have already given away 5 keys so that there's less of an entry-wall.
Hope to see you this sunday!
