I'm Max, from Sweden! I¨'ve got a lot of experience in the Goldsrc game engine through CS 1.6 HnS/Surf, TFC Quad/Conc/Bhop/KZ and Half-Life speedrunning. Although I mostly stream Half-Life, I also try to have at least one other active speedgame at the same time as well as doing a full casual playthough of a new game every week.
I began streaming in 2015 with Half-Life speedrunning. I got within seconds of beating Tryedz, the current WR holder at the time. In the same year I put a lot of focus on Portal and Half-Life 2 speedrunning, although I didn't go very far there as I left for studying Guitar Performance abroad in the US. Other than that I've had WR in the original Deus Ex but am currently second place.
I'm a contestant for the Half-Life World Record speedrun and I've had the record for a long time until very recently as it got beaten by Muty71. I'm now going for the WR and an eventual sub 27 minute run. -- ok i just beat the record )) update this text some time men ))
I also playthrough a new game every week based partly on what you ask for, which I may or may not revisit at some point afterwards with a more "speedrun" perspective. Even if it's just in "casual speedrun fashion", looking into tricks and glitches and such.
Even Weeks = Late Streams: Starting between 15:10-16:10 (Streams last around 3-6 hours)
Uneven Weeks = Early Streams: Starting between 07:50-09:30 (Streams last around 2-4 hours). Except Fridays which are primarily a Late Stream (maybe bonus Early Streams).
Weekends: Primarily Late Streams often bonus Early Streams (Streams usually lasts longer)
(I've streamed every single day of 2020 so far!)
