Kaspar, what about those who don't want to have to download a third party tool which has not been formally approved by Anet just to stay on even footing with you? You are using tools to assist your speedrun. Just because you call it "quality of life" doesn't mean that it doesn't provide significant advantages.

If you want to use third party tools for your own convenience and to provide you advantages, you have to accept that others will do the same. Just because you view yours as "simple quality of life" and theirs as cheating, doesn't actually make it so.

If we merge standard and Tas, will tas then get a more restricted ruleset that prohbits actual cheating so people can actually submit runs on that category?
(i meant this purely as a question, and in no way of an argument as i've pretty much changed my stance on the subject and agree with getting rid of standard)

With the first option, TAS wouldn't restrict anything. With the second option of a rework where the rules make sense, TAS would allow every tool usage that could be replicated by frame optimizing the game.
