Adam "Flechr" V. is a 18th place GoldenEye player from Ohio, which is ranked as the 3rd worst state in the country.
Adam posted his first time (Runway Agent 0:24) in March 2018 after watching RWhiteGoose's well known GoldenEye SpeedLore series. He slowly rose up the ranks, getting times like Dam Agent 53 and Runway Agent 22 within a month of posting his first time. He has built up a small but steady Twitch viewership on his Twitch Channel.
He gained notoriety in The Elite for his early streams captured with a webcam with a mirror being used as a facecam, which he dubbed as the “Highest Quality Webcam Stream Twitch has to offer.” Some of his more lofty goals include tying the untied Runway 00 Agent 0:28 set by Ryan "Graviton" Gibbs, and getting the Aztec 00 Agent world record whilst skipping the body armor.

Month of Aztec
May 2018, the Month of Aztec, was a special month-long series of streams where Adam would play almost nothing but the Aztec level on all difficulties, with some Statue therapy in between. Adam managed to improve his personal bests from 2:20 to 1:32 on Agent, 2:53 to 1:41 on Secret Agent, and 3:48 to 1:46 on 00 Agent. He compiled the best moments from these streams into a special celebration video.
Something unique about Adam and something he's been trying keep consistent with his whole career, is that he has a video posted for every improvement on any of his times since his first submitted time. He has also made special celebration videos for more impressive times and events like Dam Agent 0:53 and the aforementioned Month of Aztec in what he calls the "Initiation" playlist.
This 10 part video series was created by Adam with the intent of helping new players to The Elite by going over the history of the game, the site, and speedrunning tactics.
This video introduces viewers to the series and gives some background on the game and the Elite community.

When something that is deemed “quoteworthy” is said by Adam or someone else in the community, it is added to the quote list using the “!addquote” command for Nightbot. A quote does not necessarily have to be something said by Adam, or a viewer during a live stream, but those make up a good majority of the quote list, and account for almost all of the quotes from early on in the database. Adam and his viewers have amassed a total of 604 quotes (As of 1/22/19).
Part 11 is a video unhoarding times achieved from November 29, 2018 to January 2, 2019, created by Adam in collaboration with Paul "Pauliwood" M. The video contains all hoarded times set to music or commentary by Adam's brother, Marshall, and short bits between runs, including the infamous "Overclock Tutorial." The unhoard pushed Adam from 51st to 38th in Goldeneye, and Pauliwood from 34th to 28th in Perfect Dark.
Month of Rescue
The problem you have is that there is no way to sneak into the research section. The only way in available to you is a weak section of wall I’ve marked in a room beyond the stores. It can be destroyed with explosives. Doesn’t sound like a pro-
