Gamer Hits Level 100 in WORLD OF WARCRAFT With His Feet

Posted on April 4, 2016 at 2:17 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


We’ve seen a lot of strange Twitch streams, but someone managing to reach Level 100 in World of Warcraft using only dance pads as a controller has to be one of the more standout performances. Yesterday, a Twitch streamer who goes by the name of Rudeism did exactly that, having battle-danced his way through hordes of enemies, grinding all the way up to the highest level that Warlords of Draenor has to offer.

Rudeism, a gamer who ‘plays games wrong’ by his own description, has also used a Guitar Hero guitar to play both Portal 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He then broke out the dance pads this year, eventually garnering a huge following as he tackled World of Warcraft with his feet, a task which he entitled #DanceCraft.

Players can take a look at the final stream of #DanceCraft here, where Rudeism finally achieved his goal after three weeks of playing the game:

Now that Rudeism has reached the figurative top of World of Warcraft, there’s not much else the intrepid streamer can do – even his victory dance upon completion of the challenge seemed a little on the nose. As he neared level 100, the New Zealander seemed to lose his voice and admitted he was getting a little teary as the milestone approached. By the end of the journey, Rudeism had accumulated no less than 5 days, 11 hours, 48 minutes and 38 seconds of dance pad usage, which would still be impressive even if he was actually using them for their intended purpose!

Once the task was completed, Rudeism sat down at a keyboard and interacted with his fans as congratulatory messaged poured in, noting that this was the first time he had really touched a keyboard in several weeks of playing. Now that his viewship has more than tripled over the duration of his dancepad journey, Rudeism says he’s certainly going to continue playing games the wrong way: he’s poised to start playing Heroes of the Storm with a guitar controller soon, and will break out the dance pads once again for a future session of Undertale.

We’ve seen players beat entire games without taking damage and even beat games using only voice commands, but we have to say watching a man dance a jig in order to grind their way through a game has something unique about it.
