using nospread is considered cheating

@losi

The rules:
sv_cheats must always be 0
Showing that sv_cheats is set to 0 makes it a lot more likely that your run will be accepted.
The command net_graph 1 must be activated, runs without it will be deemed inaccurate. This is because we need to ensure that the runs use the default tickrate (64)
Runs are timed with the In-Game timer.
Glitches and skips are forbidden.

It doesn't say you can't use nospread. I even showed sv_cheats 0 in both of my runs.
@Mods please update your rules, ty.

just because the rules don't point out every command that is obviously considered cheating doesn't mean it's not cheating

When the rules says "sv_cheats must be set to 0" is involving that you don't use cheat commands or thirdparty softwares, but it may come as a surprise to you that cheating is banned in speedrunning like it is in most multiplayer games.

@Hedip Then why not add a rule that says "Every command you can't use in competitive matches are also forbidden in speedruns"?
You can use nospread even if sv_cheats is set to 0 so it's not necessarily a "cheat command", but yeah, i get yout point.

Thanks for clarification.

I think a "no retards allowed" rule would be enough.

To end this thread: i honestly didn't know i'm not allowed to use nospread. Watching through some of the runs i can see that some people also didn't know this rule and used it blatantly, not gonna point them out though.
As i said, the mods could at least update the rules.
Either way, thanks for clarifying, gonna break the WR without nospread in a couple of days / weeks : )
