It disturbs me to see mashing put on a pedestal by some speedrunners. Is it a skill? Yes, however it is a skill that will destroy your hands over time. Within my accessibility consultation work I always advise "NO MASHING" because it's bad for you and blocks so many from play.

With that I say that as a general tool turbo should by default be allowed in speedrunning. Root out exceptions where access to turbo-capable hardware is a major issue, or turbo changes the function of a game in a dramatic and unexpected way that cannot be reconciled.

The exceptions are needed because speedrunning is so vast and the different games will behave in massively different ways. Due to that, iron-fisted rulings across all games will never work. Despite that, do your best to allow people to play and stay healthy while doing so.

It’s a competition, and the highest percentile looks for whatever advantage to win, and sometimes accept certain risks. It’s just like any other competition or sport.

Saying that people *should* harm themselves for a sport or especially a hobby is arrogant and ignorant.

It's inciredibly annoying especially in the non japanese RPG speedrunning community as mashing is in the vast majority of cases only for text boxes, and removing the damage on your hands from having to constantly mash through them would be amazing and the right thing to do.

Honestly, on some level, I see it as gross elitism and not wanting to remove barriers of entry to games because it would make them seem less "prestigious" or something to the people already running it.

Would you say stick spinning is any better? Just thinking of the safest way out of grabs in Smash.

After I got 3rd place in Out There Somewhere any% IGT ThisIshowmyMindWorks (2nd place holder) said that we were both into last boss at same time. Last boss takes 5 seconds with perfect mashing. It took me 12 seconds. It’s also the only part of the run with mashing.

most bullets have had autofire for quite a while, CAVEs the main ones I can think of with the tap for shot, hold for laser but DOJ and Ketsui at least support C button shot autofire natively.
