Twitch streamer Rudeism has done what no gamer has ever done before (admittedly only because no one else would think to). Using only dance mats, he’s managed to hit the level cap in World of Warcraft.
Apparently it took It took him five days, 11 hours, 48 minutes and 38 seconds of busting moves to get his troll monk to the level 100 mark. As you can imagine, our hero was pretty knackered by the end (though I must stress he obviously didn’t do this for five days nonstop).
Rudeism has found unusual ways to play games before this, too. He’s also played Superhot with dance pads, Mirror’s Edge with a steering wheel, and it’d be rude of me not to mention the incredible goal he scored on Rocket League with a guitar.
You can watch his full WoW stream just below. Assuming you don’t have 7 hours to sit and watch someone dance their way through an MMORPG, the big moment is around the 7:08:00 mark.
If you ever have trouble believing dreams can come true, just watch the joy of a man who finally hits level 100 after five days of dance mat fuckery. Truly life affirming stuff.
