Hey there!

I just saw an update on M2002 metroid prime's page where they removed L-Lock Spring Space Jump. Just out of curiosity, why?

And also having been away from MP speedrunning (I forgot my previous user's password here and email) for 9+years. Last time I remember watching a Speed run was the 0:56. Glad to see we are now down to 51 minutes
Thread title: 
One shall stand, one shall ball.
My understanding is the L--Lock Spring Space Jump isn't actually A Thing, it was just a sort of a trick of perspective that made it seem like you were covering more ground than you normally would.

as a general rule, the users of this forum will be the last people to realise the site has changed, or know why

well what the hell, i was going pleb speed all along??? do i SUCK at metroid? [yes, but i still love it]
On one hand, it is really cool that this site is still getting updated, or rather, getting updated again after like 9 years of inactivity. In fact, it seems like the newest update happend only 6 days ago on April 16th! On the other hand, a shame that some historic info, like some original texts and videos have been lost.

Like, it would have been nice to see the old description of the L-Lock Spring Space Jump again. It was such a completely and utterly useless technique, it was downright funny. I remember back in 2006, i desparately tried to cross Fungal Hall A without the Grapple Beam using this utter garbage technique. I had to abandon a run in which i tried to skip the Grapple Beam i think, but managed it at some point with this technique finally. Only to later realize that it's the easiest thing ever if you use an R-Jump haha.

Speaking of Fungal Hall A, i think back then it said "Use an L-Lock Spring Space Jump to reach the far mushroom" or something. Now it just says use an L-Jump (after all, the update did promise to have removed all mention of the L-Lock Spring Space Jump). Curiously enough, this video didn't seem to be updated, it still uses a good old L-Lock Spring Space Jump in action i think haha!
I suspect archive sites probably still have the text.

The videos are likely in the bitbucket, though.
