I claim to be the most active Souls verifier, multiple games handled effortlessly. You do not seem to run either Souls or Sekiro so far, so your question is from a completely casual perspective, I assume. The community decided to keep Sekiro out because of its differences, successfully giving this game its biggest weakness (not being Souls is insignificant) and also its biggest strength: Sekiro can stand forever on its own, it will never fade out because it has no memey predecessor nor successor. I could also confirm, before the Elden Ring leaderboards opened, how committed to Sekiro the runners are, the true ones at that.
Two rule changes have been made to the leaderboards. Please read them; they are in effect as of today.
No instance of Cheat Engine or Practice Tool of any kind may be connected to the game upon starting a run. Sekiro must be closed and restarted if any instance has been used.
