    When I first started playing, I did some pretty long hours. I think 36-38 hours might have been my limit, but around that time I was also sleeping for days at a time as well.

    Everything was just so exciting and new, and I wanted to do all the things. Plus there were some pretty cool events happening that I might otherwise have missed if I wasn't staying awake for ages as well.

    Longest may have been the Bal'met finale or one of the 48 hour great hunts on an alt. It was terrible. One second I was still placing, then I got fed up of eating delivery so I decided to go out and grab a bite. In the two hours it took for me to take the bus out and find something to eat, and come home, someone had woken up an overtaken me. I spent the remaining hunt chasing after him. 10/10 would not do again.

    Hmm either deaths heart event like 17 years ago or one time I was I'll see how long Ashtan (mostly Tanris) would raid Shallam and I ended up playing 14 hours straight.

    It's funny because when I read the history's I go yeah I remember that! Or... Did I start just after that and was told about it... Or did I just read the history before..

    Curiosity struck me after noticing some names are almost perpetually logged in.

    What's the longest binge of Achaea that you're willing to admit to?

    I tend to max out at the 6-8 hour point. I have to get up, stretch my legs, blow up something in World of Warships, anything that's not text related.
    I haven't participated in the last couple of these, so I'm not sure if this is till the case or not, but in order to place in the top 10 for a Great Hunt, you pretty much need to be online and hunting 24/7 for however long it lasts. The year I came in 4th I was awake and hunting in Achaea for 40 hours straight on Friday/Saturday. I feel asleep for 3 hours and woke up with 5 hours left to hunt my way back up a few notches to capture that creddie prize, so I guess I played a total of 45 hours in a single weekend once. 

    But I have the same story as many past House leaders too: When I was the Prophetess of the Spirit Walkers, I'd play 10 hours a day or so - more on the weekends. But we got a lot accomplished IC and had a lot of fun, so it was worth the time commitment! I'm just glad I could put the time in then. Today that kind of schedule would be impossible to maintain. 

    Total Time Played: 637 days, 14 hours and 20 minutes

    Paging Dr. Veldrin, Dr. Veldrin plz
    Uh think the longest I did was Bal'met event with one of those bloody embers, think I sat from... friday to monday or something like that with like 6? hours of sleep over the entire duration. Else I've pulled multiple 40 hour shifts for XP hunts during the championship games (stupid quizzes being hold like an hour after)... Or something similiar just waiting for Yudhi. And then there was the icon wars, yuck. Aint ever gonna happen again tho, Achaea's no longer worth it after Bal'met -shrug-

      That sort of depends. I got ninth in the last one (24 hours), and I was only logged in for a bit under half of it.

    I'm such a pansy. My longest binge ever has probably never passed the 4 hour mark without taking a break. On days off from work, I have been doing "split shits" of a few hours at a time. Some of you are hardcore!

    I never function well past 24 hours of pretty much anything. Need that beauty sleep. So I've probably done about 24 hours max in my youth. 

    Have no idea how some of you guys are capable of doing more than that. Must be DAMN tiring :)

    Now I am in my thirties, and probably max out at 12 or so.

    If I knew Achaea or even online gaming was even a thing in the late 90's I would have probably never even left the house. I was already up all night playing nintendo 64 games like goldeneye by myself. I still have to come back and remind the old neighborhood homies who the 007 master is once every few years.

    Online gaming has since massively deflated my huge gaming ego born of a childhood beating every kid on my block in every console game ever.
