hell if i could id quit completely it still takes about 1/18th of my precious work-day away, but then again, its recreation i guess

Anyway, as far as I could dig up, the records were:
Army of Nobunaga 1280
Many people consider HA's record to be the only legitimate one, because he actually played out every game, while the other two ended up deadbeating most of them.
As for myself? I think I reached 120 once, but anything over 100 is crazy, and in fact anything over 60 and CC starts to feel more like work than recreation. I struggle to stay below 60, but of course there are so many cool tournaments to join, and I just can't help myself.

The 1000 plus games you speak of were just one time shots that took up most of a 24 hour day. I remember catching up to 2 hours, taking a nap, setting the alarm, and doing it again for a few days when I was peaking.
The herkman did a fantastic job (true sarcasm) He started the games and deadbeat-ed them--only thing he should even get mention for in active games is being the largest point dumper ever. Truly a joke of magnificent proportion.
I kept at least a Sargent rank the whole time even though the fluctuations that would occur when you stepped away or played for a while were unreal. 500 point swings in two hours. I did miss less than about 20 turns though as I did not wake up one time on time.
AoN missed a lot of turns and fell to a low 400 point cook, but he at least tried compared to the herkman's joke he played on CC.
That is my view of the craziness.

After a certain point, waking up and having to run through 40 games before going to work became a chore. I think anywhere between 30-50 games is perfect for me.

From what I remember, Herkman beat his record. So Herk had to have 1200+. I think the number was 1256.
But herk doesn't count since he deadbeated most of them.
Army of nobunaga had a lot of games at one point too, something over a 1000 I think.

Just click, deploy, end assaults, end reinforcements, move on to the next game.
Let's say you can take a turn in five seconds, and you take that short amount of time on you in every game, you can then take 12 turns a minute, 12 turns per minute times 60 minutes makes it 720 turns in an hour, 720 turns per hour times 24 hours (a whole day) equals 17 280 turns in a day. If If all games are 1v1's, and your opponent instantly takes his turn after you've taken yours you can play 17 280 games at once. Let's say you only need to take your turn once every third day (so you're only playing games with many players in them) you can play 17 280 games times 3 equaling 51 840 games simultaneously.
I'm gonna go create some games.......
