Void is the terminology that is used to categorise a video that is uploaded upon the YouTube of a tournament where only one of the recorded videos are shown within the video. Another case is if both sides from each competitor is present and the match in question is declared as a draw, this can also lead to the original video being void.

Reasons for void videosEdit

  • Recording has corrupted upon conversion by the user or when receiving the video after downloading it from the file upload service
  • The speedrunner has taken too long to submit his/her video to the other person and the time allowed for them to do so has taken too long.
  • The video had been received but corrupted within the compression of the video which was meant to be uploaded.
  • The video was lost or can't be downloaded from the website.
  • The person had raged to the point that they deleted the video or refused to send it
  • The person had accidentally forgot to record the video
  • The match in question is declared as a Draw

Points for void videosEdit

These videos will not allow the person who was not submitted their video to receive any points. If the winner does not submit their video, it will not be treated as a win for the loser.

If the video itself was received and has ended up being corrupted and unable to be recovered, that person might still be able to still receive points, either by evidence of others who were in the Skype call while the match was in play, or if someone was watching the match in real life and physically saw it being played out; giving backup that the person did or did not win the speedrun.
