It was early Sunday morning, around 3:30am local time, when eliters finally took the stage at Awesome Games Done Quick 2014. Alex Anderson and Ryan White speedran GoldenEye 007 using 2.X control styles in World Record time of 24:01. Bryan Bosshardt followed this up with a stellar Perfect Dark Perfect Agent 58:34, cutting the 1 hour time; something only the Bossman himself, as well as dual champion Rayan Isran have been able to do. Not to be outdone, Ryan Lockwood clutched a legendary GoldenEye 007 multiplayer victory in a 19-19 ending vs the other three gamers. Derek Clark and Trent Hovis provided insightful couch commentary while the two games raised well over $15 000 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation in donation incentives.
All in all, the unanimous feeling among eliters was that this was the biggest moment in elite history. Incredible gameplay and commentary broadcast to an audience around 50 000 viewers gave huge exposure and cemented the elite’s reputation as a premiere speedrun community among the gaming world. Congratulations to all eliters who had a helping hand in making this happen!
