Yesterday, an enterprising Hearthstone player hatched a plan to set one of the strangest world records in the Guinness Book; he intends to stretch a single turn into a 40-hour marathon. And he's doing it right now.
The theory behind Mamytwink's plan is anything but simple. Normally players only have 60 seconds to finish a single move, but Mamytwink has uncovered a combination of cards that will extend his turn into a never-ending endurance test. He's using a spell called "Arcane Missile" that's been buffed seven times by a priest card called "Prophet Velen." And those Valens have been buffed using other cards.
Here, I'll let Mamytwink explain. Just a warning, though. None of this is going to make any sense if you haven't played Hearthstone:
And if that handwritten gibberish isn’t coherent, Mamytwink was kind enough to create a bulleted summary of his plans:
- Prophet Velen was buffed multiple times with the new card Velen's Choice (more than 30 times for some Velen).
- Les Prophet Velen have then been multiplied on the field thanks to some Faceless manipulator
- In order to multiply Faceless Manipulator, we used the card Mind vision.
- Iceblock prevents the Priest from dying.
- The spellpower increases the number of missiles casted by Arcane Missiles. 207 spellpower =
- +206 missiles. this makes a total amount of 206 + 3 missiles. Prophet Velen doubles the number of missiles. Because there are 7 on the battlefield, the number of missiles has been multiplied 2^7 = 128 times. 128x210 = 26 752 missiles. Eventually, Arcane Missiles x 9 have been cast, which gives 26 752 x 9 = 240 768 missiles.
- It takes approximately 0,67 seconds for the animation of a missile to happen. 240 768 x 0,67 = 161 314 seconds. Which gives more than 44h of live stream
I'm not sure why you would ever want to watch 40-straight hours of missiles flying, but if you do, here's Mamytwink's stream.
Unfortunately, Twitch is being a little temperamental at the moment. The staff was forced to perform a maintenance check this afternoon and uploaded a blog post about a potential hacker incursion. So, Twitch probably isn't terribly concerned with Mamytwink's world record attempt.
Supposedly, Mamytwink's stream will be back online in a few hours, though. And, by then, he should be deep into the attempt (unless the game has stopped for some reason). So, if you're ready for some hot missle-on-missle action, stay tuned to Mamytwink's Twitter feed.
