Russian player banned from Games Done Quick after cheating


The popular organization of video sprints (speed run) Games Done Quick has confirmed to multiple media outlets that it has banned Russian racer Mekarazium. During the summer event, which ended on July 3, the player admitted to cheating by showing a video montage where the game is executed in record time Metal Gear Rising: Revengeancerather than playing live.

Remember that the Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ) event marked the big return to the face-to-face meeting of sprinters and video sprinters, 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 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 out 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.
