A popular Call Of Duty streamer recently had a potentially record-breaking run destroyed by an errant bug. While I'm sure most of us have lost a few hours to glitches or crashes at some point during our time as gamers, I can't imagine a glitch will have ever caused you this much heartache. Pour one out for the dude.
As reported by PC Gamer, streamer Noah was making great progress through an incredible six-hour run in Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies. In an incredible display of skill and zombie-slaying badassery, there was nothing that could stop NoahJ456 as he stormed into round 208 of his solo run. Nothing, that is, except a server crash.
Ironically poor Noah was this close to being the first person in the world to reach round 256, which is the last round of the horde-based Zombies mode before the game gives up counting. Mere minutes after reading a viewer's message about losing a Zombies map because of server issues, our hero was met with a black screen and an error message. His progress was gone. His patience and goodwill presumably had also vanished.

I really feel for the guy, but props to him for taking a loss - one that was entirely out of his control - with grace and composure. I've seen how some streamers react to things, and I'm sure there were plenty who would've responded to Noah's situation with all the class of a drunken wee in a hedge.
It's especially stinging because Noah clearly had everything he needed for the perfect run. He'd studied the maps, played nothing but the Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, and had a killer loadout that should have seen him through until the end. He was robbed. Hopefully he can recover from this and go again though, because it's clearly only a matter of time before he reaches that goal.
