A StarLadder Star Series Season 12 group-stage game between Cloud9 and Scaryfacezzz was not only the longest Dota 2 game in history, but also a case of scrubbing out numerous other records and writing in new ones. The game went on for 200 minutes and 34 seconds (over 3 hours), shattering the previous record held at 125 minutes and 26 seconds by a FragByte Masters game between Team Dog and 4 Friends + Chrillee.
A roller-coaster of emotions and plays with surprises at every corner, the record-breaking game was the second game in the series. Each time it seemed to come to an end, various twists would occur: SFZ couldn’t push, or C9 wasn’t able to win the team fight in base, or there were no buy backs available. Hours into the game, even the players were getting frustrated and taking it to Twitter. Here’s Cloud9’s Adrian “FATA-” Trinks, owning up to it:
