"In the newest addition to the World of Warcraft series called Cataclysm, a European player was able to hit the game’s first level 85 within only 5 hours after Cataclysm had been released. "
wow.. i played for like a month and couldnt pass lvl 30.. was bore as hell and left xD
that sounds like me lol
First player to reach age 85 without a girlfriend. Fixed.
"‘This achievement is not my own. I am bringing attention to the scientific findings that I will be unveiling soon’." read =| its an exploit. probably found a glitch and/or went as lvl 1 to super high areas with friends. not impossible if you know the game well
actually the experience doesnt work like that if you get taken to a much higher lvl zone with a friend you still only get normal mob xp plus the guys a douche he got banned last expat because he exploited game mechanics to get to lvl 80 fast. I find it very hard to believe he didnt have some sort of bannable exploit again to get to lvl 85 in 5 hours you need over 9 million xp to get from lvl 84 to 85 that alone would take longer.
I have to agree ... I played for 3 montths though ... but I lost interest. It's not for me.
Which has no life!?
He could probably sell his account for a butt load of money. Look at the prices of the virtual property that was just sold. I forgot which game it was,(maybe second life?)but it went for close to a million dollars. How much do you think he could sell his Account for? You know there is some really rich nerd out there, who would buy it just to kill off the player so his is still better lol.
You're thinking entropia universe. That game is built around real world currency, the money payed on large property's like that is usually made back by the investor ingame within the first 6 months. It wouldnt be possible to invest like that in any other game so u would never see anyone buying things for that amount.
^^ Interesting. Imaging trying to explain the concept of investing in virtual property, To someone in the 1950s. That's if time travel was a movie style ability. It's hard enough trying to explain things to most senior's. lol
No, its WOW.
Actually it's WoW
Well played: http://tinyurl.com/337pcoy
How do you kill that which has no life?
With a headshot i suppose.
hes quoting from a south park episode. get with the program!
Butters is awesome! But, the real quote is: "How can thy ground that which is ungroundable?"
No way you get to level 85 in 5 hours..i smell some bull of sheet
Nope he is level 85. I got this game durring the $20 for all expansions deal a few weeks ago and I will say it is fun...but how in the hell do people waste their lives playing it? Sure maybe a few hours but some people are way into this game.
No i 100% believe he "is" level 85 but i doubt the legality of his leveling process. same with the first level 80 in 2008, the guy who did it was found to have had his guild "boosting" him..
I remember reading about one guy that had 54 accounts and had it all set up were he could play them all at once. he's reasoning for this was he didnt like playing with other players. To me that seems like it defeats the the reasoning for playing an mmo.
i think he went from 80 to 85
ATHENE! This guy is awesome lol. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Paladins are a-holes....
Hunters even more, they always rolled on my rogue gear when I usd to play this game :D
Honestly I don't think he doesn't deserve bragging rights considering the legality of his methods. Last time he was first, he did mob tagging.
Man that was a bad double negative. *I don't think he deserves bragging rights.
Should read: First player to reach level 85 in his mom's basement
Bloody hell 5 hours that's insane. And for the no lifer comments I'm sure some of you play longer sessions of cod.
actually since he did it so fast he now has plenty of time for life
Agreed, 5 hours isn't that long at all. It's obvious he's good at what he does.
Damn I'm only lvl 82, granted I'm sick as fuck right now. I can see how he might have done it though. I'm not sure about the guild boosting thing though, does anyone know how that works exactly? Also for those talking shit about the guy having know life. Please don't assume anything. Like Apollyn states, how many of you play COD, Gran Tourismo, or any other game where you sink countless hours in. Same principle so get off your high horse. Granted its a bit much for only 5 hours...but on my server there was a warrior who hit the leveling cap at what 9pm last night. Damn I was going for that too, just didn't know it could be done so fast.
yeah you are sick as f*ck level 82...
Ok ok...I'm sick but I mean do you really need bed rest. That's just a suggestion lol.
don't you get rewards when you recommend a friend that let you level up instantly? i've seen videos where a player has loads of those stored up and levelled a character through dozens of levels in less than a minute. i expect they used something like that.
it wouldnt work you can only grant lvls up to 60 he was already lvl 80 hes just used some kind of exploit like last time but this time hes pretending its some kind of science to make him not seem a douche
im pretty sure most of us that comment on a message board plays games more than the average person. I wont be telling someone to get a life just like A-Rod wont be telling people to lay off the steroids. obviously though some people can take it to extremes, but 5 hours is not one of em.
Or maybe the person(if this is real) took a day or two off work? So because they're able to just take a sick or vacation day they have no life? Personally, I couldn't do this. I know of someone who did it in about 15 hours(80-85). Two of closes friends irl did it in under 20. Both of them took more than a week off to get to 85, and get started on raiding and such.
