Community Member Attempts to Break Guinness World Record Playing HoN for 72 Hours!
Let me tell you about a guy named Milkfat. A pro-gamer whose specialized in DOTA-style games for almost as long as the genre's been around, Milkfat's been around the block and back again in the HoN scene for years and he's played alongside some of the best HoN players in the world. What makes Milkfat special is his knack for drawing attention to himself. From making appearances on national television to reaching out to us here at S2 Games to help him make his newest endeavor possible, Milkfat is without a doubt, one of a kind. So, why should you care about this Milkfat character? It's because he's about to seize an official Guinness World Record and he's going to do so playing our favorite game, Heroes of Newerth.
The stage has been set at one of the largest LAN centers in North America - Howie's Game Shack in Mission Viejo, CA. On January 26th, Milkfat will begin streaming live with a staggering goal of 72 hours worth of continuous gameplay, which will come to a conclusion on January 29th. While some will scoff at such an arbitrary amount of time and proclaim that they do the same thing on a weekly basis, allow me to give you some perspective. The current record is 52 hours for continuous solo gameplay in a MoBA/RTS and it's no small task. From official Guinness World Record contracts and terms stating that while in-game he must perform an action every 7 seconds, to only being allowed 10 minutes break for each hour of play (which all must be officially sanctioned in advance), to capturing every painstaking moment on video complete with professional witnesses, Milkfat's only time of rest and sanctuary, very well could be during his queue time (and did I mention he's been training for this for months?).
I have to admit, we here at S2 Games are pulling for him 100% as he takes his shot at glory. We're even going to send a few of our staff members to attend the event, most notably, our Honcast crew, which will be hosting much of the festivities live from Howie's Game Shack. In honor of Milkfat's world record run, Honcast will also be hosting showmatches and shoutcasting from Howie's all weekend long with some of the biggest names in Professional HoN. Tune into Milkfat and Honcast January 26-29th for the latest on Milkfat's World Record Run, or come on down to Howie's Game Shack and get your Game HoN for the price of an all-day pass. Allow me to assure you, this is something you won't want to miss.
The best part about all of this is that Milkfat will donate all ad revenue generated from his Twitch.tv stream and all donations made to the ChipIn account embedded in that stream to Doctors Without Borders. It's charity at its finest and we invite you to follow along as Sam does his part to help those in need.
Check back here and at the following links for all the latest information regarding the event and be sure to check out the Honcast podcast today, January 23rd, where Milkfat will make a special guest appearance before he takes the plunge into video gaming history. Podcast coverage begins today @6:30pm EST (1:30 CET).
