GameBlast19: We Smashed Our Target
Yesterday, Later Levels’ Kim and Pete were up from 8am until 8am the following day, all in the name of charity. We mentioned before that we planned on joining them, which is exactly what both Jake and I did. We stayed up for the long haul, we had two targets to meet and achieve and we smashed both of them. Would we manage to get a character from level 0-50? Would we also manage to get our donation goal? It was a long night for us, but I’m pleased to say we managed everything we set out to do – and I couldn’t be more proud.
I’m not going to drag this article out any longer than I need to, so basically we achieved £602.15, which is above our £500 goal by over 20%. A huge thank you to everyone who came along and watched our stream. A huge thanks to everyone who kept us awake – We really started flagging around the 2am mark, before getting a huge second wind, pushing us all the way until 8am. We had a mere 3 breaks and in that time, Jake managed to hit level 50 with his character. We got a character from 0-50 without using Skyreach Catacombs, which is frankly both astonishing and amazing.
Also, just want to give a quick shout out to the member of staff from GameBlast who checked in on us. That was awesome and completely unexpected. Thanks for being awesome in giving communities like ours a quick pep talk!
I’m out now. I need to rest up, but rest assured we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled broadcast from tomorrow. If you’d like to donate to the cause, you can still do so, just hit this link and away you pay. Honestly, it was a hell of a challenge, I’m glad we not only did the challenge, but we smashed our game target and we smashed our donation target. All in all, it was a hugely successful day, even if it does mean my body is now confused as to what time of day it is.
