After a very long period of discussion and voting, we can finally announce the updated turbo regulations. The results are in, and starting Monday, the turbo cap will be 12hz with no additional restrictions. Runs that are already verified or submitted before Monday will remain allowed on the boards, but after that, you will need a 12hz controller to submit with turbo. Hopefully this will give everyone enough time to adjust.
For more specifics, we will be allowing the average turbo speed of a controller to go as high as 13hz, to allow for manufacturer variance. This also means that the 8bitdo Pro 2 (the most popular turbo controller) can downpatch to an earlier firmware to fall within the threshold. If you need help doing so, please feel free to ask any questions in the Discord. We also have a controller sheet available in the guides tab (as well as the resources channel in the Discord) that lists controllers that are allowed under this ruleset.
We think this could truly be a good compromise for the community, so we're happy about the result, and hope you all can be too. This took a lot of cooperation from all sides, so the staff team is extremely grateful to all of those who discussed, did data collection, and voted.
Thank you, and happy running!
