I was looking at the leaderboard and noticed that there was no full game (from pressing Start through completing MSQ: The Ultimate Weapon for ARR, or MSQ: Before the Dawn for the patchline / start of HW) speedrun!
I haven't seen the speedrun rules adapted to an MMO in looking around the web, but I think most of them would translate easily. I'd like to propose the following to accommodate treating FFXIV MMO aspects as a marathon and see what you all thought:
Mark whether cutscenes in Westwind / Praetorium / Castrum Meridianum are currently unskippable (~1.5hrs delta)
• Option A - Marathon
• All members need to start from level 1 at the same time ("clock starts when pressing start at the start screen")
• The same physical player per PC, no swapping
