I recently started learning how to speedrun Super Metroid. There are lots of YouTube and Twitch videos for specific, well-known strats (e.g. short-charging, Kraid quick-kill, etc.), but I see many strats emerging from currently active speedrunners that don't have tutorials or explanations yet.
Currently, to find out how to do a strat, I either have to wait for a streamer to come online, or hope I run into a well-known strat developer in chat. I don't mind either, but sometimes asking a streamer an involved question mid-speedrun is rude, and sometimes users aren't willing to explain a complicated strat in chat.
So, it'd be great if I could ask here, instead. But (1) I'm not sure something so niche is on-topic, and (2) I worry that I'd look like I'm farming rep, the way I'd like to go about it.
Ultimately what I'd like to do is draw the Super Metroid speedrunning community into Arqade. Without dropping links in their Twitch chat. What I have in mind is...
Asking how to do a well-known strat that isn't so well-known that there are already a hundred resources. (No point in adding a question that won't bring in Google hits.)
Answering the question myself if the answer is complex. This is to seed the site with some useful speedrunning answers.
Leaving the question alone if the answer is easy. This is to leave the question to be discovered by someone in the SM speedrunning community, enticing them to participate.
Asking actual questions I have, because, well, that's ultimate the goal for me.
What do you guys think?
