I think Portal races are pretty bad in general since the game is pretty short and if it's a race the commentary is going to be more about the race than the tricks used and you're already short on time to explain things. So if you haven't see Portal runs before you have no idea what's happening. In any game races can be fun if you're playing, but they are pretty bad to watch. Usually one guy gets the lead early and then you just watch the guy who's in the lead on a smaller screen. Of course there's some exceptions, but for every exciting race there's dozens of really boring ones.

A mass race would be just a joke since if there's more than 4 people playing you actually can't see anything.
I agree

the guy who called Guiness World Record Book for his 34 minutes run .
Actually, it's 45 minutes. Also, why is that on speedrun.com? It's more a playthrough than a speedrun.

Better question is why is it under "OoB" when it's literally "without any type of trick or glich since from my point of view it costs more the skill"

I've got another Valve-developed Source game for your collection: Alien Swarm. :)


Also someone should throw in a Dota2 speedrun. ;D

Hey guys, we've received many submissions for the marathon, right now we're thinking when to actually do the event. Looks like it's going to last for around 2 days (or maybe even just over it) with the submissions we've got.

It seems that most of you are available from July 10th (Friday) to July 11th (Saturday), so it looks like the best time for it. If that works for everyone, then we'll start building the schedule based on everyone's availability and timezones (we will contact the people who submitted games).

There's another very important thing - restreamers.
We need people who would be able to stream the marathon (and restream the runner's private streams) during this time. It would be best to have people both from EU and USA since the marathon will most likely be going 24/7 so when EU goes to sleep, USA can take over.

Requirements: long availability times, fast & stable internet connection, good computer hardware for livestreaming at decent quality.

If you're interested, make a post here or contact me, Gocnak, YaLTeR, or PJC in a PM or some other way.
