CHANGE OF RULES
Posted 2 months ago by

CAUSE OF THE CHANGE:

We had a bunch of people who misunderstood the rules and sent runs that did not fit the rules, but no one can blame them since our rules weren't even close to being tidy and self-explanatory. Therefore I changed the main look of the rules, added dozens of things, and overall tried to make it a lot better.


THINGS TO MAKE CLEAR:

With the new rules being set up there are many new things that we should be careful about, sadly sending runs will be a little harder because there are more things to take care of before sending a run. But it's very important to understand these rules are important for an equal and fair environment for all runners and everyone should obey these rules including moderators for the good of the community.


RE-BINDING KEYS:

There is a rule I want to point out, which is the re-binding keys. Clicking is one of the most important aspects of the community and re-binding keys is a huge game changer if used right, but it is not an in-game technique or a glitch or a bug, therefore it's an out-factor that affects the gameplay and every out-factor is unallowed to be used, especially re-binding keys because allowing it would open a huge diff between almost all levels which would decrease the importance of past runs significantly, this problem can be solved with opening a new category where re-binding keys are allowed and I will work on the new categories, but for now this category can't allow re-binding keys.


LEADERBOARD PURGE:

Many of the current runs don't fit the new rules, but most of them are not game-changers and just make the process of verifying whether a run is fair or not harder. Therefore the runs that have been sent before today will not be touched but the ones that used re-binding keys. Every run that used re-binding keys will be removed, within that time you may be asked to provide proof that you didn't use re-binding keys in your run, and some of them may be removed without asking if obvious. But still, if your run gets removed and you think you didn't use re-binding keys, then message me through speedrun.com or Discord.


NOTE:

I tried to make the rules enough clear and set them up to make sure every run was legitimate, fair, and equal. I believe they are good enough but if you think any rule needs to be changed, added, or removed, again contact me from speedrun.com or Discord.
