SCRUBATHON IV - Quadruple Punishment (Online Marathon) (December 12TH - December 20TH)

It is that time of the year again, Marathons sprouting everywhere, people submitting their games hoping they get in, making videos to convince people their game has what it takes. It is that time of the year where we want to provide people with a chance to show off their game in Marathon setting again!

Whether you just want to show off the game itself or advertise your game for a marathon, you get your chance here. Like the times before we aim to let everybody have at least 1 run, however we can not make any promises that that will be the case at the end of the day.

We will run for a week again to entertain people and show what all the speedrunners that will submit are made of.

First of the logistics:

It will be held at like always. Dates should be December 12 - December 20 . Depending on availability of runners these dates can vary by 1 day as shown.

Quick FAQ:

What is the goal of this Marathon?

The main goal of this is to give runners that wanna attend a bigger marathon (AGDQ/SGDQ/ESA) or practice for any marathon in general experience on a twitch channel that is not their own in front of a (probably) larger crowd they usually have.
That being said, i obviously will still have runners in this that wont go to any marathon that just want to get practice in or show off their game in general and show people that Game X can be a good marathon game!

When is this going to take place?

For now its going to be from December 12 - December 20. This might change by a day.

Whats the timeframe for this?

As of now I plan on doing things as followed:

-Submissions until: November 22nd
-Cuts: November 23rd - November 29th
-Getting feedback from possible runners: November 30th - December 5th
-finalized Schedule: December 6th

How do submissions work?

To keep it as transparent as possible, you can submit your games in this very thread right here. I will have the submissions listed on a google doc tied together with the schedule, helpers and restreamers and all the info you will need.(see below once i have set up the doc)

As for the submissions itself, please follow the following rules:

-Please only submit a max of 5 Games. If you have multiple categories you can play, that will still count towards 1 game only. (DELN PLEASE)

As for how the submission should look, I will give you an example down below:

Game: Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
Category: Any%/100%
Estimate: 2:15:00/2:45:00
Misc Info: Can race with Runner X, Runner Y and Runner Z
Projected Availability: I should be available December 14th - December 18th from 4PM - 8PM EST

You can edit your submissions if you want to, just let me know about it in some way so i will actually notice it!

Can I help even if I don't want to play?

Yes, yes you can! Stuff like Artwork (Banners/Layouts/Logos) and Chat Mods/Restreamers or whatever are always appreciated! However I would like to wait until End of November for people to sign up for help, since I will be busy with sorting out runs anyways.

How do I contact you if I have any more questions?

There is a couple of ways to do so, you can PM me here and on twitch, you can go to the SRL IRC (my name is eLmaGus- on there) or add me on skype (eLmaGus1988, make sure to leave the reason you add me in the Contact message).


If you would like to commentate for something, hit up the RUNNER, the runner will then tell me that you will be commentating for him. That way I can make sure the runner is okay with you commentating.

Misc Info

Game List + Schedule

Alright this should be it for now, I hope we can have a good time like last time! Cheers!

Category: Any% / 98 Spirits / 200 spirits US
Estimate: 2:35:00 (Any%) / 2:45:00 (98 Spirits) / 2:50:00 (200 Spirits)
Misc. Info: A lot of new glitches discovered in the last year make this for a very different run than SGDQ 2013.  Plus, I'll be playing on the US version, which makes for far more stressful boss battles than seen at GDQ.  Plus, we'll see if we can even finish a run.  I'll see if we can't maybe get a race with some of the other Quest 64 runners (Jazzy, Squid, Bingchang, etc.)

Game: Legend of Legaia
Category: any%
Estimate: 9:20:00
Misc. Info: The followup to the Zeto% from Scrubathon III, given the positive reception from the last event.  The run has been significantly optimized in the last six months, to the point where my estimate is half an hour faster than WR was at the time of Scrubathon III.  Plus, we all want to see a 12 year old girl get high on steroids for the last 6 hours of the run.

Game: StarTropics
Category: any%
Estimate: 1:20:00
Misc. Info: Will race.

Availability: I will not be available December 17, 18, or 19.  Other than that, I can pretty much be able to do any time, assuming it's between the 11th of December and 5th of January.  I would prefer to stick between 6:30 AM and midnight MST.

Listed in Order of preference

Game: Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria
Category: Any%
Estimate: 2:40:00

Game: Star Ocean 3: Till the End of Time
Category: Galaxy, Any%
Estimate: 4:00:00
Misc Info: Can race with Aithere if he submits. I learned this just recently, so I would like to be more comfortable with it.

Game: Wild ARMS 4
Category: Any%
Estimate: 5:30:00
Misc Info: Fast pace game with platforming elements, and a tactical 7 hexagon grid that occasionally requires on the spot decision making. A couple of new skips and tricks since it was run last time in 2014.

Game: Wild ARMS 3
Category: Any%
Estimate: 10:00:00
Misc Info: Like last time, but should be better and more streamlined. May need to break this up into two parts like last time.

Game: Resonance of Fate
Category: Any%
Estimate: 3:30:00 (?)
Misc Info: Will be learning this in Nov with LCC. Will see how comfortable I am with it.

Game: Final Fantasy V
Category: any% SFC with eng patch
Estimate: 4:30
Info: I know this usually gets run by one of my german bros (and they are better than I am), but I'd like to give this run a shot as I want to submit it for RPGLB in the future. With a reason to play it, I think I can get better. Could also try a race? The estimate is rather conservative, at least for now.

Game: Final Fantasy VI
Category: any%
Estimate: 4:00
Info: It's not like I've been running it all the time right?

Game: Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
Category: any%
Estimate: 2:20
Info: race, duh.

Game: "Mystery Game"
Category: Any%
Estimate: 20-25min (if things really go bad)
Info: Still working on it. It isn't new per say, but potentially I will be confident enough to do an average marathon run. And no, this isn't the same as feral's game.

Availability: I will be out of town 12/10-12/13 (althought I can potentially play sunday night). From there I am available on weekday evenings and on that final weekend.
Game: Final Fantasy IV
Category: Any%/Any% no 64 Door
Estimate: 2:15:00/3:30:00
Misc Info: Would prefer Any% as it's shorter and I die to Zeromus in relays anyway Kappabappa. A race would be fun if others would like to.
Projected Availability: Safely available from 14 - 16 December, otherwise I have work on a couple days elsewhere. Can verify when it gets closer if you like.
The first game I will offer is Final Fantasy XIII.
Having only practiced it for a few months, I have a ways to go, but I can get there.
Estimate is 6:00:00.

Don't really feel like running Bastion solo, but I will race Feral if he wants.
Obviously any category is fine. 18:00 for both any%s, 50:00 for the ASLs.
Guess we'll see if he's up for it again.

I'll also throw in FEZ, any% with a 30:00 estimate. I
should be well in practice by then, so you might
look for a race if someone else offers. Also, Toki Tori 2+,
a really speed game that's sure to entertain. I'm
not trying to brag, but I hold the WR and could safely
do a run in 45:00.

For my final offer, I've hidden it in this
reply. If you can decode it, you'll find
a truly top quality speedgame. In any case, it's
nice to see the return of Scrubathon. I can't wait to
kick this off in December. I really appreciate this
event and all the hard work you guys put in to
realize your dreams. It's truly a great marathon.
Zero complaints.

Game: SaGa Frontier
Category: Blue/T260/Emelia
Eastimate: 40:00/1:20:00/1:00:00

Projected Availability: Anytime is fine with me

Game: Grandia II AE
Category: Any% Phantom Skills
Estimate: 10:00:00
Info: I'll change the route next month so it's lightly possible that the "new" route will be run the first time at the marathon then. Game might crash here and there since it still got a few problems. I assume it'll just crash once.
