The Minecraft speedrunning community is currently reacting to controversy surrounding notable YouTuber and streamer Dream, who is being accused of cheating to achieve his impressive speedrun records.
Speedrunning Minecraft involves collecting twelve Ender Pearls, which are obtained by trading Gold Ingots with a Piglin. Under ordinary circumstances, a Piglin will only provide an Ender Pearl 5% of the time, meaning that success in this speedrun often comes down to luck.
The accusations against Dream, which come from a variety of different members within the Minecraft community, have resulted in a series of investigations from players which seeking to determine whether he has cheated in his speedruns, or simply gotten very, very lucky.
The accusations of cheating that have been levelled at Dream are a result of some of the Piglin trades that he is seen making in his speedrun videos. According to his critics, Dream made 262 Piglin trades, and received 42 successful trades.
Following extensive data analysis, critics argue that Dream consistently received higher rates of favourable trades when compared with other speedrunners. Dream has already publicly countered these claims, arguing that the data is asked because he quit while he was ahead, and therefore his trades are naturally above average.
This explanation doesn’t sit well with many commenters, who note that the odds of receiving the exact trades that Dream received in order to complete his runs are 177 billion to one.
My 1.16 run was just rejected after research due to it being “too unlikely to verify”. A video was made by a head mod and Youtuber Geosquare, using my name and clickbaiting “Cheating Speedrunning” in order to get easy views. Definitely a response soon. Total BS!
At present, it looks as though the majority of the Minecraft speedrunning community question the legitimacy of Dream’s records, arguing that he may have hacked the game in order to achieve a more favourable trade ratio.
While this is impossible to prove definitively, it’s also impossible for Dream to provide proof that he didn’t cheat in his Minecraft speedruns. Thus, the fan community can only trust in the hard data, which can be interpreted in many ways.
As official moderators have now ruled against Dream, his records have been deemed “too unlikely to verify,” and his times have been removed from official leaderboards.
