Title: Lauren Featherstone breaks the Tapper record!
Post by: homerwannabee on July 17, 2017, 05:03:38 AM
In the last day or so Lauren Featherstone broke William Rosa's 10 million point tapper record with a score of 14,000,600.  Personally I consider this the greatest accomplishment by a woman in the history of Arcade gaming.  I know other women have had Arcade records before, but Tapper is definitely a very well known game, and has a great competitive history with it.  So big, big, big congrats to her for doing what she did!  8)

It was over 24 hours.  Here is a link the play.  She seems to have a pretty upbeat personality when she was playing this.

I agree its pretty awesome and good for her! I guess I just have a thing against "marathon" records. The who decided to play it longer crowd doesn't excite me that much but I do think this is great for here. Now Rosa has to play it for 28 hours and then she plays it for 30 hours and so-on and so-on. TGTS FTW :D

All said though great job to Lauren!  Kreygasm
