Barnabas Vujity-Zsolnay, a Hungarian chef, set a world record in online gaming rather than the kitchen. He set the record for the longest videogame marathon playing an MMORPG, clocking in at 59 hours and 20 minutes in World of Warcraft. That’s over two and a half days of uninterrupted gameplay, breaking the previous record by an astonishing 23 hours and 31 minutes.

But the triumph was more than simply bragging rights. Barnabas’ whole record attempt was live-streamed, with all earnings benefiting charity. The event, held by a website, demonstrated his commitment not only to gaming but also to giving back.

Barnabas now holds the Guinness World Record for both the longest MMORPG marathon and the longest World of Warcraft marathon.

World of Warcraft Is Like Other MMORPG That allow Users to Create Characters and Explore a Virtual Environment

According to Guinness Environment Records, World of Warcraft, like other MMORPGs, allows users to create characters and explore a virtual environment in which they may fight monsters and accomplish objectives alongside other players. Barnabas filled the time by completing dungeons with his companions and fighting other players in designated arenas. However, after playing for 30 hours, he claims he became bored since he ran out of things to do, and at 45 hours, he began to hallucinate.

“I noticed mild hallucinations starting to form,” he told GWR. “It was funny but also hard to concentrate while live streaming.”

According to the criteria of the ‘longest marathon’ record, Barnabas earned five minutes of relaxation time for every consecutive hour of playing. Only during these pauses could he eat, snooze, or use the loo.

Barnabas says it was “really hard to cope” with exhaustion, but he never felt the need to ingest coffee, instead choosing water alone. He believes that he drank about 15 liters throughout his record attempt.

Barnabas is no stranger to marathon gaming sessions; he has been playing World of Warcraft daily for almost a decade, and as a teenager, he would frequently play for up to 10 hours during the week and 16 hours on weekends.
