I don't know if you're going to get good advice about speed running here, homie. I think you should set your estimates a little bit above your average run rather than the WR, since you aren't going to get the WR at a live event.

Don't listen to Ryoko's negativity. What you want to do is taper and then cram a bunch of performance enhancing drugs right before the event.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone completely cranked out of their mind on speed at GDQ, so maybe that's a good way to get your name out there.

That right there was actually all the advice i needed on that subject of estimates. I think i was worrying too much.

So fun times for M2, as I managed to somehow get a Sub :40 on Waterloo Waterpark

Provided below is the film, time starts when control is given and time ends after I completely teleport out of WW.

I have finally achieved what I set out to do originally during Awesome Games Done Quick 2017. A nice sub 20 time that still has some room for improvement. Shoutouts to ApertureGrillz for figuring out how to make that skip on A Converted Church in Venice, Italy a hell of a lot easier.

A kindergarten speedrun sounds far less entertaining than a TC speedrun.

Maybe he does Kindergarten because TC speedruns get deleted. I had a perfectly legitimate 90 hour speedrun of Charon Doesn't Make Change that got deleted from lhowon.org because the whole system is rigged. Sad!
