Our First Project : Breaking a Gaming Guinness Record in World of Warcraft

in Hive Voice8 months ago (edited)


As promised it is time to announce the first big project of Hive Voice.
World Records Greece and Marios Ioannidis have been licensed by GWR to attempt breaking the The Largest videogame marathon on World of Warcraft.

Shadowlands Expansion is on it's way and Blizzard announced the 27 of October 2020 as it's released date. Millions of people will start getting involved with WOW, getting ready, getting psyched.
As always when an expansion date comes, WOW gets a lot of attention.


Hive will be the main brand being advertised in this attempt.

The Record

What we will attempt is to break a world record for the The Largest videogame marathon on World of Warcraft.
The current record is 32:36:00 so what we aim is a 35 hours run.


The Game

World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment.
Here are the expansions that have been released:

  • The Burning Crusade, released in January 2007
  • Wrath of the Lich King, released in November 2008
  • Cataclysm, released in December 2010
  • Mists of Pandaria, released in September 2012
  • Warlords of Draenor, released in November 2014
  • Legion, released in August 2016
  • Battle for Azeroth, released in August 2018.


The Guidelines

Breaking a world record is not as easy as it sounds. Guinness guidelines is a 20 pager full of evidence rules, restrictions, and proof requirements. Everything must be perfect, on time and precise.

3 Witnesses, 3 stewards, a full camera coverage full-frame coverage and a memo with every movement are just some of the specifics GWR asks.


The Venue

The record will take place in Patras – Greece.


Patras is located in the Mid-West part of Greece a 2:30 hours ride from Athens.
It's a town of 200.000 people with 33% of them being students.

The record will take place in inSpot Internet Place.
Inspot is the largest net-café company in Greece with over 22k followers on Facebook and will provide us with the facility and tech requirements for a successful attempt.


Previous Accomplishments

Our team has 4 World Records

  • Largest Bachata Dance (GWR – Kalamata Greece 2016)


  • Largest Kalamatianos Dance (WRG – Kalamata Greece 2017)


  • Largest Kuduro Dance (GWR – Patras Greece 2018)


  • Largest Disco Dance (WRG – Patras Greece 2020)


Promotion - Publicity

Breaking a world record brings huge media attention
Thousands of articles online, TV and web TV interviews, radio, newspapers, etc.



A Guinness World Record becomes a HUGE National header for the country that it's taking place and an international "thing" too since WOW is a massive and popular game with users from all over the world.

Also, this particular record will be covered in several streams.
In this Record, Hive will be the center of attention.
Hive and @Hive-Voice will be the main brands featured in this record attempt.
It is an awareness crusade!

Hi there. There is a typo in the first image on the post. I think you mean "World Record", not "Word Record".

Lol, we paid so much attention in the details and we did a typo at the main image! Hehehe!

Thanks for that my friend, much appreciated!
We are gonna fix it right away and stay tuned for more updates!


This sounds great! Hopefully Hive will get the world record for the least amount of censored content on a social media plattform :-)

That might actually be a record we can achieve no problem! Our team member @mariosfame has a lot of experience in Guinness World Records (he owns 4) so we can talk about that!

Great idea buddy!

Well, the record u suggest meeds a powerful lawyers paper and a high budget to pass. We will see for a direct record for HIVE after completing various projects and strengthen our place. Thanks for the suggestion though

That would be amazing to see high profile lawyers and buisness man talk about HIVE and how censorship resistant it is.
It would be great to watch how these people discover the vast possibilities of the HIVE Blockchain...
Keep your head up folks

good idea pro ;)

Thank you @kruptominer 😁
