What is Spyro Tournaments
In 2018, CrystalFissure and Nintendogen64 decided to create a new series of tournaments for the Spyro the Dragon series of video games. These tournaments are primarily revolved around races between two or more competitors.
The Spyro Tournaments banner hosts tournaments such as the “International Spyro Grand Prix“, and in the future, the “Spyro Speedruns Cup“.
Currently, we are running and organising the International Spyro Grand Prix 2. A 36 person tournament inspired by New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax Tournament.
What is a speedrun?
A race is the concept of having two or more people compete with one another in a single player game instead of a single, split-screen, or multiplayer speedrun.
This is the basis behind the many speedruns seen in I’m A Speedrunner and this community. A race is often done live either in the same room or more commonly over a VoIP program and a proposed game and objective for the speedrun is decided upon in advance.
The nature of the speedruns for these tournaments are of a more casual nature, prioritising “weird” runs over any% or 100% runs.
(The ISGP tournament is not associated with speedrun.com or the Spyro Speedrunning discord)
Spyro Speedruns Cup 2021 is currently airing.
A tag team tournament will be coming after SSC.
