    No one is really disputing that Billy is very good at those games, he's a pioneer of competitive video games, that legitimately set and broke records, but he's from an era where he was able to forge submissions that would be taken without question due to his notoriety of past accolades, it just finally caught up to him with the advancements of technology, and social media, while also being under a microscope after being featured on King of Kong.

    I really don't doubt he's cheated, but I do recognize he also has legitimate achievement too, I just think he couldn't leave it at that, he was going to hold on to the top spot at long as he could even if it meant cheating, and now that players have surpassed him to a point he won't likely ever regain it the only thing he has to hold on to is at least clearing his name of being a cheater to try and save face when he should have just been happy with what he already accomplished.

    Watch Apollo Legend's videos on Billy Mitchell for evidence.

    I have.
    But why should I trust this guy instead of the other guy? They are both perfect strangers to us.
    Evidence can be manipulated (specially video) to fit either of the parties.

    I've lost all respect for Guinness... Oh wait, I never had any :D

    Screw them and screw Baby Mitchell.

    When's the last time anyone consulted Guinness for the world record time/score for a game?
    It would never even cross my mind... I can think of 3 other places I'd check, if I even got that far.

    It is probably less being in the book and more the act of being disqualified from it meant a knock on effect for appearances, bookings and events (controversial figure, fantastic possibly more turn up to boo him or gawp, controversial figure that is known as a cheater... ghost town).

    Because the evidence Apollo used was from Billy Mitchell?

    And the fake swap board adds more to the pile against him.

    Also, the issue isn't that he sucks at the game and needed to cheat. The issue is that he used an emulator, then denied it when evidence showed up. Not sure why he denied it (prolly cause Twin Galaxy doesn't allow it iirc).

    There's a pretty good video made by Omnigamer (same person who exposed Todd). You should go watch it.

    There is video evidence of him using MAME. Which he denies to this day. (This would allow him to use save states and stitch together the footage. If you watch the video of his records they're obviously stitched together.) Also he faked switching out a DK board for a Jr board on video. (Jr was in it the entire time on video. They just took the board out and put the same board back in.) The same day he apparently set a record on both games on that machine.

    Seems Leonard French did an update video covering the amended complaint from Mr Mitchell.


    PDF of the document in question from his site
    https://lawfulmasses.com/guinness-restores-billy-mitchells-donkey-kong-world-records/

    Next hearing appears to be on the 6th of July so I guess we will know more then/whenever the results of that get made available.

    Assuming his history of things in the amended complaint is accurate (and if anything he has an incentive to talk them up in this) it is also a pretty decent overview of Twin Galaxies. Stuff I did not know and goes back further than I thought.

    Equally we might be heading for a technically correct/legally correct type of debate, even not withstanding the are emulators legit discussion (as silly as it may or may not be if it is part of the rules for that set then eh). Twin Galaxies claim it is just, like, my opinion, man as a get out of that, however that potentially dubious with what they are and what the statements/actions would be perceived as being. If however it is not an opinion but a statement of fact (which it could well have been) then even if it was not a legit run then if they had no evidence (don't know what goes for reasonable belief in their evidence when it is not a lawyer/legal scenario) and also refused to engage then yeah that might well land you in defamation world.

    If that was the case, yeah we would be jealous. Also Billy "Baby Dick" Mitchell would've been concerned about getting girls not records, and we wouldn't be here discussing his sad life full of rejection.

    But alas, he didn't get the girl, or the record. Isn't hung AT ALL, and publicly adimts to such with his actions.
