    it was canadian airlines and when GDQ apologized they said that they didnt even notice the spam.
    im still going to watch it but i wont donate like last year
    Seriously, what the fuck is their obsession with Prevent Cancer? It would be like "Oh we're supporting Breast Cancer Research, thus Susan G Komen foundation will be getting everything."

    You picked like the worst out of the possibilities.

    I mean it's goofy and all, but this is what I miss from the older GDQ marathons:



    It was just a more laid-back environment and people could wear stupid costumes if they wanted to. They did the whole Pepsi Man thing at the last marathon, but I'm sure that required some fairly heavy approval beforehand.

    Unless they're so far gone that they really don't give a shit about the charity anymore and just want to run their stupid safespace into the ground they'll fire whoever is deciding to ban runners over stupid shit already.

    If they throw a live riot or some shit during the stream this just might be the best AGDQ ever.

    So you are going to believe him, without a doubt? I skimmed the thread on r/speedrun and he even did a mass shooting joke at last year. Just seems like he wants attention.

    Apparently he got banned for being the one who recorded the confrontation at one of the staff members posted last page

    How the fuck do you get banned for recording shit like that.
    That's some shady shit.

    Edited:

    Please wait until after Shovel Knight to riot.
    That's one of the only runs I want to see.

    Because the people who run AGDQ are blithering morons. Every year something happens and it was up to the runners to do a fantastic job holding it together.

    GDQ can lose their nonprofit status if they're seen as "making a political endorsement", which would remove the tax exemption for the donations. I can't blame them one bit for not taking chances with what the IRS decides counts as a political endorsement.

    I'm assuming nothing since nobody is saying anything about it and it's not present in the stream.

    Up until '13, and even '14 really, the event was pretty fun.
    Then the owners started selling out, and there's been drama, safe spaces, and shady stuff going on since.
    It seems to increase tenfold each year too. At some point it's just gonna implode upon itself and collapse.

    What are safe spaces in a context like this?

    gamergate was spooky back then. i remember the donation notes says "AGDQ shows that gamers will do anything to help people #gamergate" or something similar, and i guess they dont want to be associated with the group

    I dunno I'm enjoying the run (even if the jokes are sometimes pretty iffy), but it's probably because I like the game itself a lot.

    It amazes me how much of a party shitter the management can be at AGDQ. It's actively preventing me from enjoying the stream to its fullest because I know that behind the streamers having fun there's some shitheads banning people left and right for minute shit.

    Same here, never watched a BL2 run and it really wasn't that bad. Sounds like the route they took has really been optimized quite a lot. I think one of the runners mentioned shaving almost 13 minutes off the WR time over the past year or something.

    Not swearing on a broadcast doesn't sound very unreasonable to me, in fact that's very common.
    Is that really much of a problem?
