There has been a controversy brewing on the Minecraft side of UZmatch centered around well known Minecraft creator Dream. He's been accused of faking his speedrun and it has caused a lot of stir. I'm not here to point fingers or accuse anyone. What I'm doing today, Theorists, is going over the facts of this situation and why it is a lot more complicated than people are making it out to be.

      that wouldn't change anything cuz, luck isn't a skill. Plus he took this to a count with some small things that'd actually put this in dreams favor, but that didn't help much at all.

    Turns out he did cheat. Now, I'm not gonna defend Dream, but I think the Speedrunning community brought this type of backlash on themselves. I've looked at the history of a lot of speedruns, and these communities can get very insular. Here's a big point I've come back to. I've seen a lot of stories about communities changing their rules when a newcomer rises to the top. The Pokemon RB community is one of the worst. One time, they decided that using a glitch that disabled text scroll (bike shop glitch) was allowed in 'glitch less speed runs', saying it was no worse than the commonly used redbar glitch (still allowed, mainly because it is sometimes unavoidable) and would actually remove some of the RNG. Until a newcomer used it and got a new record, then they banned it and sniped him off. At another point, they banned the use of emulators and invalidated all emulator records, setting the record back about a year to a high time a top runner had gotten just off the cuff, not seriously trying. It's especially bad for these game because the runs are so RNG dependent so you can't just go back and do it again following the new rules. This kind of stuff breeds an elitist attitude, and the moderators of these communities actively cultivate it.

    Dream didn't cheat if they complain about the loot he find its because yes its random but 80% of the time the random loot is good and 20% its bad that why he was so fast because he got the 80% chance of good loot dream will never cheat never

    To answer to your question: Yes dream did cheat the speedrun. Matpat knows he cheated but he refuses to admit it or give a proper answer.

    • Choco penguin
      Choco penguin

      The thing is, with a monster that dream was at that time it'd, put he's family and he's channel in danger, plus they are friends I assume the reason he give such a poor answer was to defend dream without actually lying and to keep he's status as a credibly source.

    • morbideddie

      Yeah, like Brady mentioned it’s just a low quality video that skirts around a conclusion to the question and instead just presents Matts ignorant ramblings on what he thinks something he knows nothing about should be like.

    • Brady King
      Brady King

      Probably because (from what I've heard, I didn't watch the whole video) mat doesn't even come to a conclusion of if he cheated
