Glitchless Categories Please?
Texas, USA

Can we please have glitchless categories? I don't even want to bother speedrunning this game if it means I have to learn glitches I'd never normally use. The only thing I do that could be counted as a glitch is melee/jetpack, but that is so common that I think everyone does it, so I think maybe that should be allowed even in the glitchless category... Definitely wouldn't want people doing this analysis visor thing though. Just isn't natural and is really annoying to watch.

Aren't they duping stuff as well? Because that's a big no-no for me as well.

I can't speak for duping in runs in the current patch, but there are some heavy oversights in this game that are abused:

  • Underground Items spawning above ground (Tech Modules)
  • Direct warp to Anomaly, from setting it up off a separate save file (which adds an option otherwise not available from a New Game)
  • Scooting (resetting forward momentum over and over; set-up specific)

The amount of current interest in the game does not warrant a separation of categories into glitched/non-glitched, especially for the ones mentioned above that are arguably not glitches.

The only kinda iffy one is the direct warp, but everything else is kosher and not considered a glitch.

We are not considering a glitchless category at this time.
