Epic Fail: a speedrunner from Zelda: Breath of the Wild messes up in hour 39 of his particular challenge
Finish the last Switch Zelda without taking a single hit? A tragedy told in three acts from Twitch.
Speed-runs are always an inexhaustible source of anecdotes and challenges. This is one more story within the particular universe of the challenges of The Legend of Zelda saga with its latest great adventure, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The protagonist is SpecsNStats, a streamer with the intention of setting a good time by finishing the game without receiving a single hit. Failed in challenge hour 39.
What exactly happened? Simple: on the way to the last sanctuary in the game, the player tried to teleport to their next destination, but missed the button and instead of confirming the action put a sign on the map. Upon returning to the game, a Stalkoblin caught him off guard and from behind, hitting Link and ending the SpecsNStats challenge. His reaction, slow and ironic, has called the intention of the network, which has ended up viralizing it.
What would you do? Would you try the challenge again or would you prefer to save your strength for future attempts in the expected The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2? It seems that the streamer has intention continue participating in the challenge, which shows his sportsmanship and desire to continue playing one of the best video games released in the decade. A true contemporary classic that, in the field of speed-runs, has thousands of followers.
