Now, officials finally removed Dream’s record in the leaderboards. Dream’s record-breaking Minecraft speedrun was monitored by a team in Speedrun. A website that officiates speedrun gameplays from players around the world.
According to investigations, Dream used a mod to get higher drops. It means that monsters in the game will drop more items than their usual drops, giving players the ability to progress much faster in the game. Dream tried to defend himself from the accusations. In a social media post, he said, “I provided everything the mods ever asked for to them, so this is false. I also never said that I “delete them frequently”, and Geosquare has admitted this and apologized.”
