Metroid Dread Forum  /  A question for the community
  MageiusMageius

Good evening everyone,

Now I am probably a fool, idiot, stupid and probably dumb for even considering this but I am considering contributing the minimum amount for the game to a "other side tournment" level tournment for Speedgaming live 2021 because which is 11/5-11/13.

Look I'm 100% aware that it's probably a dumb idea and well probably be considered inconsiderate but I honestly think it could be fun to actually see a "snapshot" of a very popular game like Dread 1 month into it's life as a speedrun. Because the game isn't even out yet I thought it was worth it at minimum to ask if anyone would even consider it a smart idea.

Hence this is why I'm writing this and asking for the communities thoughts on anything that would be around this even before I do anything else. I'm far from being the best at conveying my thoughts in text here and am probably getting caught up in the hype of the game finally getting the ability to come out, but as a fan of speedrunning and the series despite not running any games in the series.

Honestly since SGLive haa money on the line and with it happening so close to the game coming out I don't know what the best thing would be to do. All I can do is I guess ask the community here would you want me to do this or would it not be a good idea and that I'm probably just being dumb and inconsiderate with even considering the idea. I'd leave everything up to the community to decide on it but as a fan, a gamer, a small peon, dreamer, and yes an idiot I wanted to ask.

(I know I'm dumb on this one so please don't yell, get mad or complain about me even asking the question despite knowing full well rhe community has a right to, just let me know on this one because I don't want to do something stupid here since I'd only be a fan.)

Please think it over and let me know what the community thinks, if the community says no I'll just probably but the minimum amount ($25) towards one of the other tournaments.

Thank you very much for your time and again sorry for bothering you all.

I've re-read it twice and I'm still vaguely unsure of what is being asked here. I am not overly familiar with "other side tournaments." Can you explain it to me a little bit, you really only provided one or two paragraphs actually talking about it and I am just a little confused. Also, there is nothing wrong with asking questions, there's no need to apologize or beat yourself up over asking a question. Thanks!

Ah sorry for not replying sooner was a little worried about how my last message came off and well IRL has been a pain for me due to work.

Anyway if you're familiar with Speedgaming and their Speedgaming live event which is going to be online again this year:
https://matcherino.com/t/sglive21 (Link to info about the event)
http://speedgaming.org/2021/ (Link showing current nominated games for tournaments)

I wanted to know if it was ok if I donated the minimum amount to get them to add Metroid Dread to the list of other side tournaments since it allows for people to donate to get tournaments added to the event and since the game comes out a bit before the event I thought it might be fun and something people might like to see. (Originally did donate the minimum $20 for it and was met with a bit of a mixed thoughts on it due to how communities sometimes handle new games due to how close the event was and the nature of the event.). So I decided to ask about it, if it was ok, would the community want it or should I have them move the contribution to another tournament since it's the type of event where they also respect a speedrun communities thoughts and requests if they don't want a tournment in it

(Was namely apologizing so much because after thinking about it felt like I might have done something dumb and stupid with not thinking about it and it's the type of the that I should have probably asked about since part of my comment was about if they decided to ecen consider it as a tournament to ask about what people would want to see as far as a category went.)

Again very sorry for the inconvenience with all of this since and probably my own stupidity for not thinking as much with it.

(I'm just some no body on the internet but since it does allow for fan suggestions........)

(Esit was to add a link to the event info.)

So who would be running in this tournament? I'm still mostly confused about that.

Never mind sorry for bothering you are. (They decided it would probably be best to wait because it was too close to the game's release)

Fair enough, I'm still curious about this however. I will look at the links you sent!
