Swedish speedrunner from Borås with strong reactions to pbs.
Even though Cradle is one of my most disliked levels in the game, I got the first 33 that kinda started the gold rush of untieds. Will likely be the only untied I get but I'm very grateful for it and it was an epic moment.
Getting Cradle Agent 0:33 untied and hanging out with Marc in June/July 2019 + witnessing silo 0:59 live was the highlights of speedrunning GE and those things alone made it worth it already.
Took a big break from speedrunning July 1 - November 23. The reason to this was stress caused by pretty heavy things resulting in a bad mindset and a bad loop. I'm not 100% yet but good enough to resume this hobby again.
"I have been playing videogames all my life and it's now time to focus on other things. It was fun but I realized that it won't help me to evolve as a person. More the opposite actually. It's all about that dopamine". = How I felt back in July 2019.
How I feel about it now: I was just very stressed at the time and when you are in a very stressful mindset, you don't always think in terms that "solves" the situation. Instead you can make extreme decisions (everything or nothing style) and that's exactly what I did. I realized that speedrunning is a cool hobby that I like but it has to be balanced out with other stuff in life, otherwise it doesn't work for me.
I was part of the "Amalgamates" hoard project 2020, where I played like a madman between February 2020 - January 2021. I went from 22th - 11th place in point ranking and took Swedish champ, a title Illu has been carrying since Jesus was born. My motivation to go rampage on my timespage was me getting Silo 1:00 where I proved to myself that I could easily crush half my timespage and get rid of all "bad" times, which I did.
Started working out at the gym February 22 so I'm focusing a lot on that atm. It feels amazing so far!
But don't you worry, your favorite autistic Swedish madman is back soon enough, with a sick ass controller with a steel bowl. Cya live on twitch in the near future =)
Sick times AKA fac 43 for starters.
Top 10 point rank.
