    HC: World Firsts - Looking for More People

    Purpose: Rush HC, 60 and Inferno as fast as viably possible (ie world firsts)
    At Launch: 72-96 hour marathon session (ideally getting to 60 before sleeping)
    Commitment: 1 straight week of HC play, 12 hours a day minimum (I'll personally be doing 5 weeks)
    Voice Chat: Skype
    Groups: 2 full (4 player) groups (so when people start dying off/falling behind there's still a full party to progress)
    Request: 4 more people able to commit to the above
    Contact: If interested contact me at DarkPhenomenon@shaw.ca

    Thanks!

    Dude, that's not good for you. Physically or psychologically. Are you sure a silly game is worth risking your health man?

    Good luck but be careful, people have died doing this type of stuff.

    Playing three or four days in a row is the best way to fail horribly, since you'll lose all concentration in the end, when the game gets the most difficult.
    Also, expect some retard like Athene or whatever WoW attention whore to pull all kind of lame techniques to get world first HC, like hiring an army of monkey to farm gold and gear for 24 hours so they can have their name on a ****ty video.

    Not only are you trying to rush to beat Inferno, but you're doing it on HARDCORE. That sounds hella difficult, but good luck!

    Like others have said though, be careful as well, because you still gotta look after yourself.

    Why does everyone assume going 3-4 days in a row is going to kill you or cause bodily harm? Yea it's killed 0.00001% of people, people living in an internet cafe on instant noodles and energy drinks for weeks on end. I eat healthy, get regular excersize and have absolutely zero chance of being physically or mentally injured from this endevour.

    In fact I've done it a couple of times already during D2 ladder resets, 3 days straight, 2 boxing HC characters (a mouse in each hand) with no hacks or cheats and came out #1 and #2 until bots overtook me. Zero problems, not even a hint of a problem (unless you consider getting a sound 12 hour nights sleep after going to bed).

    As long as you're a relatively healthy individual doing a 3-4 day gaming marathon is NOT going cause a problem, nor will it make you so out of it at the end of your marathon that you become unable to see or play straight.

    That wouldn't be hard to get - rush to 10 on Normal, make a new HC char, and then find some obliging monsters :p.

    I would, but I don't have what you would call a flexible work schedule... I'd still like to friend you in-game to keep tabs on your progress though if that's cool? My first marathon session will be over the weekend.

    I would try but i know it's going to be impossible compared to some hardcore group of guys who will probably devour it and spit it out in a week - I rather take the gentlemen approach and savior my wine and look and explore every crevice

    Re: HC: World Firsts - Looking for More People

    I'll agree that the health risks are small, but not small enough that caution is a bad thing. The main things with something like this is to sleep enough that you dont exhaust yourself and to still stretch your legs once in awhile. Im not knocking it and i'v done some fairly crazy marathons myself but its always good to remember.

    Re: HC: World Firsts - Looking for More People

    Good luck to you, will be cool if you make it. 60 hours is a long time to be awake and alert enough to stay alive. The best I could do 10 years ago was around 36 hours of halucination free alertness. Now I don't even go past midnight, lol. I feel old. :(

    [edit: oh, you might have meant level 60 not 60 hours, it'll still be a long time awake]

    Re: HC: World Firsts - Looking for More People

    Thanks for the tips, I play on getting 10-12 hours of sleep before the marathon and stretch periodically throughout with a well prepared array of food and water.

    Then I will likley fail in my goal, hopefully one of my party members will succeed and I will begin anew at level 1 with some buff artisans and awesome twink gear :p

    Sure, my battletag is BazDefunct#1607

    That's cool, I do wish you luck! dying is a very real possibility, so you should certainly be prepared :D

    Re: HC: World Firsts - Looking for More People

    I would think that the best way to achieve this would be to have a team playing each char in shifts, 24/7... and I would bet that there is at least one group set up to do this already :/ Isn't that how the D2 ladders were routinely won?

    But if you can beat them, best of luck to you!

    Re: HC: World Firsts - Looking for More People

    :funnyabove:

    3 days no sleep
    jazzed up on caffeine and energy drinks :rolf:

    you will NEVER make it to level 60 with out dying
    I'll bet you don't make complete Hell difficulty, much less step foot in Inferno
    and I call BS on your claim to have done this before, one mouse in each hand :rolf: for 72 hours

    and you plan on playing 5 weeks, 12 hours each day ?
    do you have no life ?
