Telling the audience to throw themselves in front of a train.

Classy.

Looks like he got called away and swapped out afterwards.

It wasn't a runner, he was some guy who was there with one of the runners.

The crowd was told to stop with the noise though. They were ruining the runners moments.

I fell asleep about ten minutes into Super Metroid so I've just watched it back.
What a run! Behemoth did really well to pull it back after Zoast went about 35 seconds ahead of him during the item clean up. Getting it down to an 8 second gap was really impressive.
I felt a bit bad for Ivan ending up so far behind the others. The upside was that the completions were staggered quite nicely.

Utter idiot making that stupid suicide comment. Did they actually address it and say he was thrown out, or is this just coming from what people there said?

They said on twitter they had addressed the issue and nothing more. It pretty obvious he was sent out.

So people were talking about the dark souls 3 speedrun. From what I understand it didn't go too well.
Turns out the dark souls speedrunning community got together during the run for the purpose of making fun of the runner.

Bubblesdelfuego was running Dark Souls 3 Any% last night at AGDQ.
The run was...not the best, between crashes, RNG, not the best preparation and Bubbles not being a world record level runner in the first place. But that's not the point, just for some context. And hey, people outside of the hardcore community for the game seemed to have enjoyed the run, and it raised like 200.000 $ during its time slot on its own, so all is good, right?
Well, not for many elitist member of the Dark Souls speedrun community.
During the run already, before even knowing whether it would go wrong, various speedrunners hosted the run with the main purpose of providing a platform to laugh at and shittalk the run - a thing that the Dark Souls community has done multiple times in the past for pretty much every single GDQ community, no matter who the runner was, Oginam with Dark Souls 2, FatB with Bloodborne, now BubblesdelFuego with Dark Souls 3. Apparently the beef they have with a certain runner doesn't matter in the end if they do it anyway regardless of runner, as long as they aren't part of the very core of the community themselves, right? Distortion2 was streaming his own commentary of the marathon run, maybe with good intentions at first, but yet, as he exclaims "I'm not shittalking Bubbles", he posts a copypasta 10 seconds later to 1500 viewers in his chat.
Distortion2: I came up with teardrop JKanStyle at least that's the claim JKanStyle shame I didn't bother JKanStyle to learn the rest of the game JKanStyle
Yeeeeah no shittalking right.
But it gets worse.
Watch this: https://www.twitch.tv/miltent/v/114796183
This guy literally started a stream to mock and harass Bubbles. Just..look at the overlay. It's disgusting. Hue hue so funny. Many other speedrunners joined a call for the stream with the sole purpose being to make fun of Bubbles. I've been part of the community for years, and it's always been like that, there's always been main runners being bullies and picking on someone for whatever perceived flaw as an excuse. I tried to call it out again and again, got gooseberry fool for it every time, and ultimately just stopped being too involved in the community.
This is a new low though, culminating in mocking a personal speech by Bubbles at the end of the run where he said that "As a 17 year old he was diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma and thanks to early detection they were able to treat it, but it came back at 19 and he spent a long time in the hospital where he watched a Dark Souls 1 run at AGDQ 2013. There he decided that speedrunning was what he wanted to do, and that it just meant a lot to him to be there himself running and he hopes that someone watching him now will feel the same way." (took the concise summary of another reddit user called BrastaSauce from a post on r/speedrun)
Like...really? You're gonna make fun of that? I have no words.
https://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/comme ... s_kind_of/
Here is another thread that discusses these things that happened for more reading material, I commented in there last night already, too. I wanted to make a more indepth summary of what happened though because I'm disgusted and appalled, especially by the fact that not only people I knew would do this where part of this, but also people I thought were better than this.
Edit:
And here's a log of Mec's chat where they gooseberry fool on him the entire run: http://pastebin.com/eJujWir2
Some great hits include:
Making fun of him for having cancer.
Consistently saying that "He'll never mention any of the real runners", which he then does repeatedly.
Attacking and mocking anyone within that chat who even says "maybe thats too much".
Thanks to JoshuaOC for providing that.
Thanks for reading.

It's a shame there's such a disparity between the quality of the game and the quality of the community when it comes to Dark Souls. Even among casual runs on stuff like YouTube.

I'm sure every community has its own elitist assholes, but Pokémon is the only other series that comes to mind at this level.

And it SUCKS because Soulsborne games are up there among my favorites.
