Cassandra is the most annoying ever existing thing. Elvis goes next, very very close, followed by Jonathan.
Let A be a pizza of radius z and height a. Its volume is V_A = pi·(z^2)·a = pizza.

29. When your Tier 1 record gets bopped by a new strat on the most embarrassing run ever;
30. When you're close to getting a sick WR / untied, but other things in life pop up and you have to put the grinding on indefinite hold;
31. When you know you're a champ status player, but don't feel like playing the game so you have to accept getting bopped to 2nd place;
32. The alarm guard on G5 SA. If you're good, he's not a problem on A/PA at all. But on SA regardless of how much cinema you watch, he is always in an awful spot at WR pace.

The cinema being long on Infiltration SA is actually a good thing. For one it filters out all the non-patient players from the level. It also means consistency is more important. Plus the cinema gives you "breathing time" between attempts which not only gives rest to your hands but also means you can do other things like grab a Sunny Delight, check Facebook/Twitter, read the news, watch another stream, etc.

We somehow skipped #3, #4 and #5.

33.  Oh, you just watched a 1 minute cutscene but pressed the C-buttons a frame or two earlier than you're supposed to?  Let me just freeze Joanna's movement for you, ending the run 0 seconds in.

42. The medpack not activating instantly on Escape SA/PA. You're done with a majority of the level and this dumb luck factor can stop you from WR'ing. Can't remember it being too bad but it's still annoying.

Well, as an NTSC player, he can't do good on Deep Sea A/SA... The NTSC strat loses like over half a minute on A and over a minute on SA.
Let A be a pizza of radius z and height a. Its volume is V_A = pi·(z^2)·a = pizza.

Here you have the World Records by System. PAL has over 1:30 minutes of advantage, yep.
It's the difference between you completing an objective with 2 shots and then run, or wait for Elvis to arrive to a place, do his stuff, and then run, so yeah, significant difference.

So many PDs is because Rare Replay just came out on the Xbox One.
They weren't speedrunning, just playing casual.
