I have played 14 hours straight, with 2/3 10 minute breaks.

I don't think I've ever made it past three or four hours.  I love the game, but it gets boring and/or frustrating fairly quick.  Not even 6:40 breaks could keep me playing longer :P

I think the longest without a break was about 3 battles in a row without doing anything else.  If I'm home the game will be running in the background so I can quickly hop into a game if I so desire.

About 8 hrs. Had a (legitimate) sick day, so played from the time I dropped my daughter off at daycare, to the time my wife came home from her mother's after picking up our daughter and staying there for dinner. (minus a spate of bathroom breaks of course :D)

Just a bad joke.  He said he takes "2/3" 10 minute breaks instead of 2 or 3. 2/3 of 10 minutes = 6:40.

Depends on what you mean by straight.  Part of what I like about WoWs is that it's fairly episodic, so I've probably had play sessions that lasted for an entire waking day, but that doesn't really mean that I've played non-stop.  I'm not somebody who can usually sit still for that long.  I think the most matches I've ever had in a 24 hour period is something like 30 and that was a pretty epic grind for me.

Plenty of all day Saturday game sessions usually 08:00 to 01:00 but that Is pretty rare. 08:00-19:00 was fairly common. I play a lot less now on average.

Longest streak was probably 6 straight on Thanksgiving where I played maybe 20 total games.

 

It is kind of my "tradition" to play games from the morning till the early afternoon on Thanksgivings.

Oh ok. I thought maybe it was something to do with a 4:20 break.... :D

I don't remember for sure, but when the EMT showed up with the IV I figured that was enough.  Besides, have you ever tried to WASD while someone was poking you with a needle!

This was me today. Sick day. Wife out. Kids at school...

Three games later I'm done. Just didn't have it in me to deal with the inevitable frustration.

FXP grind over Christmas with the Papa Papa + ESCL flag event.

 

Think I might have managed to break 100 matches in a day, constantly swapping between Zao, Moskva, and Hindenburg.

Got a problem with the game? Don't pay WG, and tell them why.

I went on an 8 hour binge when the tier 6-7 ships were on sale last month (30 games or so). Of course, there were a few breaks, but most of that time was spent playing. Normally, I can play an hour or two at the most, but I really wanted to take advantage of that sale.

 

It actually burned me out and I haven't played much since, mostly a daily co-op game in the Myogi just to get the XP to unlock the CV, before next weekends sale.

During BW2 my bud and I played 28 hours straight to get the Yammy. Tied that when CBT started to get the Yammy again. Fun times with MM being some of the only tier 10s in the first couple days, you can imagine the team make ups. 3 Pensacola's vs 1 Yammy was one battle I remember.

Does having the client open to run tests, reference statistics and occasionally hit "Battle" count as playing?  If so, approximately 30 hours straight to get the second Duca d'Aosta review done.  That was "fun".

Maybe 8 hours, but with a break or two.
