Minecraft YouTuber Dream admits to using the mod in Speedrun Record

In a new post at Pastebin, Minecraft YouTuber Dream admitted that their impressive speedrun numbers for version 1.16 of the game were the result of a mod. Submitted in October 2020, Dream’s “Any% Random Seed Glitchless” run was completed in just 19 minutes. However, immediately after posting the time, many began to suspect that something was wrong with the record. The speedrun.com team found a lot of suspicious material in their posted videos, including drop rates that would be nearly impossible. Despite this, Dream insisted he wasn’t cheating, and things quickly escalated online. The streamer now claims he didn’t know that a mod he uses for streaming was having an impact.

“In our challenge videos, before 1.16, we always increased enderman spawn rates and pearl drop rates for convenience and we’ve mentioned this openly before. It makes the videos better because we don’t skip. not spending hours looking for pearls or spending so much time growing blaze stems (totally RNG stuff, mostly pearls). When 1.16 was released it was more complicated to increase piglin trades than to do enderman pearl drops. A server side plugin has been created for our videos that slightly increases rates, ”Dream wrote.

This would explain the weird drop rates that the speedrunner.com team noticed. Dream went on to write that he had ruled out the possibility that it might have impacted his time, but it eventually became clear that the mod was playing a role in his record. The YouTuber went on to say that he felt awfully guilty about this realization, especially given some of his comments on speedrun.com mods before finding out his time was illegitimate.

Speedruns have become an incredibly popular part of the competitive gaming community, and many take them very seriously. Beating a game in record time is an impressive feat, which many players strive for. As a result, many players on social media have criticized Dream for his conduct following the cheating accusations. Speedrun.com mods have seen a lot of hate pour in because of Dream’s insistence on not cheating. While Dream may have been clear on the situation, nothing changes that fact.

Dream has an incredibly large number of subscribers on YouTube and his social channels, and many believed him by word that he didn’t know the mod would impact his speedrun times. It looks like the incident won’t have much of an impact on the streamer in the future, but some fans can’t be blamed for being unhappy with his actions during the controversy.
