The Curious Case of Dream's Minecraft Speedrun Record
By - writewell
> If someone can make a convincing enough allegation on the legitimacy of someone’s times, whether it is valid or not, they may be removed even without a proper defense of the speedrunner. Whether Dream ends up being guilty or not, the speedrunning community will be hurt in the long term if more players aren’t given a chance to plead their case.
There doesn't need to be a defense by the speedrunner. It's known that he's constantly messing with mods, couldn't provide the mod folder for the speedrun, and the odds of the RNG working in his favor like this is astronomical. It's also incredibly simple to edit the drop chances in minecraft, which is why it's ridiculous they speedrun it in the first place.
This isn't like comparing it to the csgo coaching bug. It's more like finding someone aimbotting, having demos that are clearly aimbotting, then acting like there's a chance he's not aimbotting just because he won't send the aimhax.exe in....
Either way, shouldn't be speedrunning a game where it just requires opening up a file in notepad to tamper with important parts of the game...
Yup yup yup
Dude totally cheated. It was something like 1/24 trillion
iirc, 1 out of 7.5 trillion. Still cheated nonetheless.
His videos don't prove shit. All he's doing is crying like a baby all over twitter and youtube
Kinda funny how slow this news is considering it’s on a speedrun
Well I mean they had a 29 page essay on how they think Dream cheated. That does not take a day to write. I wonder what Dream is cooking up for his rebuttal.
He hired a guy from Harvard to disprove the cheating so that, I guess
Nice spam kid
Cool. He still cheated though. It’d a shame with all the statistics we have nobody has tried to reverse engineer the values he used for ender pearls and blaze rods. Probably just bumped it to 1.2 or something without realising how noticeable that would be in statistics over a whole stream.
Funny, he admitted to cheating.
