    When did you register with the Guiness World Records for your attempt. How long did it take for them to get back to you with an approval. 

    More importantly how do you intend to prove any donations you receive go to a charitable organisation? Have you informed that organisation of your intended donation? How will you provide receipts for your donors for their tax records? 

    You are a one-day, three post wonder. Why should we trust you enough to give you our money?

     

    AAANNNDDD.

    What the hell do you mean by "extra donations go to the great american cancer society..."?

    36 hours non stop playing Star craft 1 when i was 19.
  • RobokappRobokapp Dublin, OHPosts: 5,205Member Uncommon

    personal record...21 hours.

     

    I wanted to do all BC heroics in  one day.

     

    me, brother and a friend pugging other 2 spots.

     

    by he time we hit shadow labs we still had CoT ones (among hardest) left and we were playing like brain-dead zombies so we had to stop.

     

    it went like this:

     

    -first 6 hours. focused, doing great.

    -next 5 hours...autopilot.

    -anything past 11 hours was just bad. the autopilot could no longer make smart choices and things that should be simple became insanely complicated. brain power was at zero.

     

    granted we were doing BC heroics...back in BC. this was difficult content unlike leveling. not insane at our gear and xperience but 20 hours of it was taking its toll big time.

     

    I miss the freedom to play for 100 hours if I want to. I know I can't, I know I don't need to nor should I...but i miss being able to if I choose to. Damn you, work! I wasn't done being alive. It's too soon.

     

    I have a lot of respect for people trying these things. as long as they don't abuse caffeine and die. Although quite honestly...it would be a good way to go. beats being old sick and in pain with depressed crying family members around.

     

    I wonder if I'll be banned for this post.

    How do you think they are taking the Adderall?  The pills are quite small so you could pretend to cough.  Maybe have them slipped into a drink or something.

     

     

    edit: btw my longest session was a Civ 2 binge I believe.  Only 18 hours I think but I swear it felt like 6.  Even though I'm a lot older I bet the only way I could break a personal record would be a Civ game.  Civ 4 got me up over 14 hours a couple years ago, and recently on Path of Exile I pulled over 12.

    Had a 21 hour cr run in plane of growth in eq every time we sent in a team to start pulling corpses back to the zone in someone would aggro the protectors. We finally got a few druids to start a cr run for us. a few of us lost a lv from all the deaths. and whats sad i miss how hard core it use to be.

    After 30ish hours of sleep deprivation the circadian rhythms get all screwed up, and it goes downhill fast.

    Would not recommend.

    Some people had been reported dead after staying playing for more than 48 hours.

    Yes with an underlying medical condition its possible, but people with SFI and FFI(fatal familial insomnia) usually survive for 6 months before dying.

    Anybody else would experience constant "microsleeps" after 30 hours of being alert, anything that would interfere with these (like alert gameplay) only makes matters worse.

    personally, after 20 hours of being awake, I start imagining things

    no visual hallucinations but my audial senses start getting tweaked

    - ie imagine hearing things that arent there

    At around 30-40 hours you start seeing things, past 40 if you're lucky and horny you'll start seeing your favorite actress running around buck naked... quite distracting or so I am told.

    Back when FFXI was still new I did about 70 hours non-stop just in a single leveling party.  It was so hard to get a party for the class I was that I just stayed and renewed members when others left; had some people come back three days later and get a kick out of it being the same group.

     

    Probably did 55 hours or so on WoW once when AV took that long.

     

    Then again back then (and still today, I guess), I was really fit and jogged for a couple hours a day on average.  So I wasn't too worried about the ramifications for my health.  Not something I'd do now, as I get tired after a 9PM-6AM all nighter these days.

     

    I remember those stories of people dying playing WoW after about a week of no sleep.  Though I guess it's just not something someone thinks about contacting an official to make it in the books.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Op is at 51 hours

    he looks similar to the other streamer (rlenk) before he was shutdown for being reported for self harm

    my personal record was ratting in system in EvE for 37hours (minus the 30minute downtime) 

    the system was a small system next to g95 in this time i had 26 faction spawns and 2 officers :)

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game :) were of course your welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.
