I was not able to purchase Tera for the first beta test but now own the collector's edition. I plan on staying awake for the entire beta test 2 event and get in as many minutes as humanly possible. The only thing that worries me is if this is too dangerous to my health. If you feel this maybe too dangerous to attempt, would having 3-4 hours of sleep in the middle help lower my risk?
It's dangerous. Just play the game and have fun, relax, and enjoy your time now. You'll have plenty of time to play TERA without straining your eyeballs needlessly. :)
doing anything w/o stop like that is dangerous. Its dangerous to just sit look at the wall for 48hrs and its dangerous to sleep for 48 hrs just like i be dangerous to play tera for 48hrs because your body need to do other stuff to function XD
Have you ever played a FPS/TPS or action style arena game for 48 hours? Cause I burn out and feel brain dead after 12 hour stretch, some nights even 4 hours of playing a TPS makes me super sleepy.
I was really sleep depraved the last CBT and I just ended up staring off into the game world. I wouldn't recommend it. Games like this take a bit more out of you, so being rested is essential to playing well. And it definitely doesn't make your eyes or head feel great to play excessively to that extent.
Dont see the point, you'll hit cap in 7-10 hours depending on player density and since its cb, i dont *really* see a point unless you're playing pvp server, and even then the classes aren't balanced at all around level 27 pvp.
I wouldn't advise attempting this.
Not sleeping in itself is unhealthy but combining it with sitting at a computer playing a game is even more so.
You don't by any means need to play the game in such a long, continuous spurt to enjoy it. In fact, action based games (Such as Tera) start to wear on me and make me feel fatigued as I near the 10 hour mark (If that). I couldn't imagine trying to go for 48 hours, or the entire duration of the beta.
Just take it easy and enjoy the game for what it is. :)
Also this is a 60 hour CBT. Friday at 12pst until Sunday at 11:59pst. So you have plenty of time. Plus the level cap is 27 so you will not need that much time.
I don't see a purpose for a 48Hour run since it's closed beta and your efforts will simply be erased.
Save it for the Open Beta/Early Launch if you really want to attempt it but honestly it's just a game. Hahaha
Other than: feeling like a zombie, eyes hurting, getting a headache, i would say the worst to look for is your arms and legs, not exercising in little breaks will be the worst.
what i mean is if i've been playing for very long marathons like that, if i move my arms or bend them in any fast motion without taking a break for stretching, they will give you this sharp stinging pain because of arms being in that position for so long, it hurts like a son of a, im sure you know what im talking about its common for people that dont do much when gaming, like me hehe.
best advice then: stretch every once in awhile, get up and spend a few mins stretching your arms and legs, rotate your wrists and kinda massage your inner arms a little, where the veins are.
and drink water in between cokes! my experiances~
