A new world record for the most hours streamed on Twitch in 30 days has been set by a Path of Exile streamer named Zizaran. As a Norwegian-born Path of Exile fan, Zizaran began his 30-day Streaming Marathon back in December, racking up over 500 hours of streaming leading up to January 6th, 2019.
Zizaran tweeted his accomplishment as he wrapped up his final stream, saying "we hit the world record in most hours streamed by a single streamer" with a final timestamp stopping at under 505.5 hours. That beats the previous record of 402 hours and 57 minutes, which was created by a different streamer, Giantwaffle, just last month.
Zizaran had to keep up streaming for an average of almost 17 hours every single day in this streaming marathon in order to pull off this feat. Needless to say, that inevitably leads to an alarming imbalance to his away-from-the-keyboard daily routine - there are only seven hours left every day for sleep, having meals, bathing, going to the toilet and any other things to subsist on.
With that in mind, I'd suggest you don't give a try to beat this record at home by yourself. Less than seven hours' sleep at one night may not sound so cruel or undoable - However, it's a whole different story if you persist in that insane rest schedule 30 days in a row. Zizaran truly made it as we were having a quick look down his Twitter feed, but it was totally an isolated incident and a Wreck Trial that should not recommend to others itching to try.
Zizaran celebrated the end of the stream with several Path of Exile giveaways, some of them bankrolled by the game’s developers themselves. Grinding Gear Games tweeted last night to let the community know that the streaming marathon was coming to an end.
