Wow, I can't believe how deep this rabbit hole has gone. This is by far one of my favourite things in gaming this year.

I did it! I finally did it! I spent way too much of my new year's eve and new year's day bashing my head against the Armageddan, but I fucking did it.

I didn't mean to, but as soon as I hit the finish I tossed my Wii U gamepad hard in the air and it hit my computer desk and didn't sound great, but it's still working. I don't remember ever reacting to something like that before.

I don't think that's a good bet on the double or nothing or was there no bet to begin with? Was hoping Patrick would make it to the door just before time was up because he said he was going right and that would've been it, I think that would've got him to quit. But with 4 hours it won't matter now and he'll probably beat it.

I made a thing in honor of @danryckert's destruction of the coward Patrick.

I know the masking is crap, I don't have a video editing program I can do that in so I had to fuck around in photoshop and animate it.

I browse yahoo homepage from time to time (yeayea laugh it up about yahoo) because there's sometimes some interesting articles linked on front page, usually sciencey stuff. Anyways, I just saw an article about Dan and this level on the frontpage of yahoo... which I find pretty funny. I'm sure Dan would be pleased with himself. http://news.yahoo.com/sadistic-mario-maker-stage-destroys-181753004.html?nf=1

That time he almost beat it while Dan was publishing the shirts. Didn't beat it though, sure showed me, I thought that was lots of time for one puzzle.

Fitting that the start of 2016 wraps up the greatest esports rivalry of 2015. What a season.

Can anyone share exactly how close Patrick got to beating the level last night? I can't commit to watching the whole thing. I saw one tweet from Dan saying Patrick "made the jump." I'm not even sure what that means.

If someone had a timestamp on one of Patrick's archives, that's be ideal, but a summary would be just as welcome.

The way I see it, it's now 2-1 to Patrick. Congratulations to Dan for getting on the scoreboard at last.

Dan made it clear his goal all along was to just make Patrick fail/quit. Whether it took him 1 level or 300 levels, so the whole 2-1 thing doesn't really fly. Patrick put up a valiant effort, but ultimately Dan got what he wanted.

@corporalgregg: I know what Dan's ultimate goal was, but as far as saying he's won, sure he got his goal, but really it's 2-1 to Patrick. I think Patrick said he'd keep at it and that he will beat it one day but he's just not going to focus on it exclusively at the expense of other levels.

That's a pretty weak standard by Dan then. It's like a little kid screaming "no no, let's pway again let's pway again I wanna twy again" every time he loses, until finally the parent relents. And why was there any arbitrary time limit on this one again? As far as I can tell, Patrick was pretty close to beating it.

Patrick set himself a time limit. Looked like he got very close, reckon he'll have beaten it in a week, and if he's had no outside help, thats an incredible achievement

I'd say it's 1-1 as one of the levels had no time limit or anything.

@duffyside: People really need to understand and come to terms with the wrestling heel persona Dan does and the concept of an "I Quit" match. Getting this type of comments over and over is tiring.

As for how far he got, here is the solution video (sorry still can't embed anything) at the spot Patrick got to: https://youtu.be/LVv3XzSe5Ks?t=8m The difference being that Patrick had lost his helmet at this point so he couldn't actually proceed.
