Russian player banned from Games Done Quick after cheating


Russian player banned from Games Done Quick for cheating

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a beat 'em all video game , and was launched in 2013.

The popular video sprint (speedrun) organization Games Done Quick has confirmed to several media outlets that it has banned Russian runner Mekarazium . During the summer event, which ended on July 3, the player admitted to cheating by showing a video montage where the game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is executed in record time. , rather than playing live.

Remember that the Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ) event marked the great face-to-face return of the video sprinters' meeting, but that some people preferred not to make the trip, including Mekarazium.

The participant admitted to playing a pre-recorded video of game footage, while filming himself simulating that he was playing live. Result: he beat his own time, already a world record, by 25 seconds.

Internet users have noticed irregularities in the execution of the Russian player, in particular the virtual absence of keyboard noises during the game Blade Wolf. People have also pointed to a moment where Mekarazium, right-handed, raises his right hand as the character he controls looks around, a maneuver that requires having the mouse in hand. The runner says he used his left hand at this time.

In a statement, Summer Games organization Done Quick said they were informed that Mekarazium played a segmented video for their run, and the player admitted to cheating.

“[Mekarazium] contacted our staff with a document detailing that they had been planning this for over a month, demonstrating that this was planned and intentional.
