Reason: Information missing for Spyro Skate Tournament.
TheMachineKing (Also known as Paul or Paul Patrick Bandicoot) is a SpyroSpeedruns community member who is known for his different style of videos that are uploaded within his YouTube accounts. These consist of videos either related to Crash Bandicoot and Spyro but others such as Team Fortress 2, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, SpongeBob SquarePants and others. Paul has been known infamously in the beginning of his time for cheating within his first ever performed speedruns which turned into an award named after himself in the I'm A Speedrunner Talkshow, branded as "The Biggest Fail", which hasn't been notified of his reaction to it so far. Other of his videos were included within the award as well such as his music videos of "American Dad Theme Song" and "Dr Mario with LYRICS"
However this event has not been so much as a previous deal so far till it occurred again within the Spyro Skate Tournament with he submitted a TAS video to the account which not allowed and got him disqualified and banned from any gifts from the tournament. No discussion has been said from him so far about this either.
Paul is known to have a very funny personality from most of the people within the community. Along with this, he also has most connections within the different communities of SpyroSpeedruns and Multispeedruns than anyone else (The skype calls tell the rest)
He is also known as one of the entertainers within the community, uploading such other videos as music videos, songs and live performances.
Paul was appeared in IAS 3, 5 and 6 so far. He did not compete in IAS 1 or 2 due to that he found out about the tournaments after the end of IAS 2. He didn't compete in IAS 4 or 7 due to not having any of the games required.
Participation in I'm A Speedrunner 3Edit
As mentioned before, Paul cheated within all of his speedruns which got him disqualified in the first round. Each of his videos were re-recorded due to the original videos being corrupted when they finished recording, because of the small amount of storage space that was available on the computer that he was using at the time. No common sense took place for the sending of the re-recorded videos due to the fact that the commentary was recorded before and didn't match his videos.
Participation in I'm A Speedrunner 5Edit
Due to the issue not being serious, Paul was allowed to be in IAS 5 where his videos were not re-recorded but recorded from his mobile phone and digital camera to allow the video format to not be corrupted when finished. Paul made it to Round 2 where he was sent to verse CrashBandiSpyro12 where the match was intended to be a Crash 3 race to beat N. Tropy with 5 gems. However, on the day, CrashBandiSpyro12's disc was corrupted and was changed to a Crash 2 race to beat Tiny with 5 gems. Due to Paul's lack of knowledge, practice and relaxation with the tournament, he lost the speedrun by a warp room to CrashBandiSpyro12 who possibly changed it to meet his standards before the notification was made.

Participation in I'm A Speedrunner 6Edit
Paul came back to IAS 6 despite the Spyro Skate Tournament Incident which was treated within the issues of IAS 3. Paul's skills had improved and his sent videos were perfectly done along with his skill for speedrunning in Spyro games, however were only seconds off the winning competitors and Paul was knocked out of Roud 1.
Participation in I'm A Speedrunner 8Edit
Paul decided to join IASG8 after a comment implied by CrystalFissure despite his lack of knowledge and skill in the Gex series. He ended up losing both of his matches against KingEurope1 and ThePlatformKing however was one of the first speedrunners to do the matches in IAS 8. He decided to withdraw from the tournament after admitting to Fissure in Skype that his experience in IAS 8 wasn't fun but in fact boring and annoying due to problems with the ISO of Gex 3D for the PS1 and the game in general. However, he was "begged" by the hosts to at least do the speedrun but the allowed times weren't going to work with the tournament, so a 'parody' match was done with ThePlatformKing as Michael and HeyDavid17 as TheMachineKing; which resulted in TheMachineKing winning the match but still being kicked out of Round 1.
Participation in IAS? Nein!Edit
At the start of the tournament Paul didn't fare so well after losing his first two matches to Th3AustralianGam3r in a Crash 3 race to beat N. Tropy and NoVaX9000 in a Spyro 1 race to get 100% in Toasty and Doctor Shemp. However he was able to turn everything around after he defeated CherokeeGuy45 in a race to get 3 dragon eggs, get a game over, and complete Night Flight in Spyro 1 and PinstripeParagon in Crash 3.
With 2 wins and 2 losses Paul had enough points to move on to Round 2 where he was defeated by MrFinlandboy in a race to get 20 lives in Spyro 1.
