    24 hours Wurms online. Build a complete homestead farm from nothing in that time. Including makeing a mine to mine the ore for nails and whatever, getting all the wood, making the tools. Did some upgrading fences as well.  That was long enough and not planned or something. Was just having fun and had the time anyway.

     

    This guy does not look good. :/

    I thought guiness stopped doing world records that endangered the person trying to do it.

    The only record i see this guy setting is in stupidity.

    Neither Guiness nor Twitch should support this. And what sort of "record" is it anyway? It as lame as these world records in sitting on a bench or turns in a revolving door. There is not even any "competition" in that sense.

    its ridiculous what kinds or "records" Guiness supports anyway....going by crap like this, i should have set a ton of world records already...such as longest time wearing my t-shirt inside out without noticing it or slowest eating an apple while doing the most circles with my mousepointer on the desktop.

    Break it yourself then :) you talk big but you have no idea how hard sitting records or such "easy" records are. I once bet I could stand on one foot for an entire hour because I am good at balancing, didn't manage more than 45 minutes before my leg cramped up.

    Quite frankly A record where you try to play for 135 hours is extremely dangerous and I'll judged. Those timescales are life threatening, and should be slammed on by reputable sites in case the less intelligent in the community try to follow suite.

    rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW > oblivion > LOTR > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

    Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR, Elite D

    Has this guy died from sleep deprivation yet?
  • obsolete5obsolete5 alabamer, ALPosts: 82Member
    a bit strange imo just because like people these days should realize playing up to and even more than 5 hours a game a day is already getting to be pretty serious i mean if you can and enjoy it go for it i guess but people die doing this kind of thing your body isnt supposed to be awake and sitting for this long its not natural.

    For the last three years I have participated in the extra life events first two years was a gaming marathon for 24 hours and this years event was 25 hours. Gaming for a good cause gives some extra power.

    Though my longest game session is 34 hours straight of wow when it was released. Did get my Paladin to level 38 :)

    Well, thanks to a server reset, this fine young gentleman isn't going to reach the time he wanted, but rather he'll miss it by an hour... poor planning as server reset has always happened on Tuesday.

    no, but he's crawling and his coordination is terrible.

     

    he's clearly affected by it and he's visibly in poor physical condition.

     

    Level 80, approaching 81. It's bad...at this rate he will pass out before succeeding. If he's lucky.

     

    human body is quite defensive. he'll pass from a micronap out way before he'll drop dead. Hopefully.

     

    Still, his life, his choice. Not ours. All we can do is watch.

    fair enough

    but he was also next to a small circular flaming pit in orgrimmar claiming it looked like a vagina

     

    he's offline - I have no idea when he stopped,  he was over 58 hours when I last looked

  • MightykingMightyking CapellePosts: 233Member Uncommon

    I saw his counter at 65 hours, then tabbed out for an hour or two, and saw the stream offline. In twitch chat I saw someone saying that he mumbled something incomprehensible for a few minutes and then logged off.

     

    Don't try this at home kids :)

  • herculeshercules lancashire,blackpoolPosts: 4,791Member Uncommon
    went to twitch and saw him on 60 hours or so came back later in day thinking he be on 70 or something but he was offline.guess it got too much.
  • AvarixAvarix Chicago, ILPosts: 384Member Uncommon
    Did he know what he was doing? I have read a lot of claims that it's pretty easy to hit cap in a day or two now. Wondering if they were exaggerating.

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

    Yeah some 4-5 South Koreans have died from gaming marathons with many hospitalized over the years. There was talk for a while of laws being passed to prevent that from happening since it was all done by people in internet cafe's.

    his channel is claiming it was due to a disconnect issue  http://www.twitch.tv/maak9

  • RobokappRobokapp Dublin, OHPosts: 5,206Member Uncommon

    can we clarify if the player disconnected or if the character did ? :)

    You don't die from sleep deprivation.

     

    Anything less than 48h is Babby's First Gameboy with 10lb of batteries level.
