Fatal1ty’s upcoming visit to Copenhagen has already drawn a large media interest, including interviews with the leading TV stations in Denmark. Some of the predicted 80,000 visitors of the CEC event in Tivoli Theme Park will also have the opportunity to be a part of the attempt, as 6 other PCs are manned with a rotation of other gamers, just waiting to be the next character fragged by Fatal1ty and add to the tally for the record. However, to put a twist on things, any participant that wins a point against Fatal1ty will win not only bragging rights, but also exlusive Fatal1ty hardware. So, as much as they may want to help Fatal1ty and be ”fragged,” they will equally want to survive and win exclusive prizes!

Who says world records are just for Olympic gamers like Michael Phelps?
Online gaming has been growing for over 15 years, and as that interest has grown, it has developed into a true internationally recognized sport, or rather eSport. Fatal1ty and Boomtown have been a part of this growing eSport and are now joining together with Guinness Book of World Records to bring it even more international recognition.

”eSports are about more than sitting at home in front of a PC and playing games all night long, and Boomtown is excited to team with Fatal1ty to put a mark in the Guinness World Record Book and prove that online gaming is both fun and serious—even social,” says Boomtown respresentative, Pamela Simpson.
