Today I learned that certain video game speedrunners (who shall not be named) add "placebo" steps into their runs; small but pointless steps that don't actually help with the overall run.
This is so they know when others have lifted their methods directly. Pretty nifty I think.
It's like the gaming version of paper towns. Towns on maps that don't exist in reality so that cartographers can tell when their maps have been lifted and copied. #Gaming
