“#TheRace” is finally over, the Twitch TV/Machinima guys just hit ‘Prestige Master’ this morning at 5am (PST). Hashtag TheRace began playing right when the game was officially launched (Nov. 12th 2pm PST) so there was no head start for their rank. As acknowledged by MrErnestLe in the video, “oTradeMark” was the first to reach Prestige Master however he had a 4 day head start. The group did beat his time though by 2 hours and 1 minute it seems.

They achieved this by playing in rotation under the Gamertag “Hashtag TheRace” which was played by MrErnestLe, TmarTn, IIJERiiCHOII, GoldGloveTV. Currently they’re number one in the worldwide leader boards too.

There’s a bit of controverary as to who is “the First” so we’ll let you guys decide in the comments below. Technically we think both are though. Either way, quite an enormous feat by everyone involved. Congrats to everyone!


    Bull shit they used 4 people shouldn’t count.

    I think “the first” to do it should be someone who got there by playing the game themselves? Not a group of people playing 24hrs a day on one account.

    They all live in the U.S. they all got the game early. They didn’t start at midnight their local time because they started at November 12th. 2 P.M. PST so if they were to be the “official 1st prestige master ” they should have started at midnight their local time because I doubt they moved to what ever time zone they were using to start off of. I don’t understand why nobody has actually thought of this. So technically “HashTag TheRace” started early.

    If I see any comment’s saying Trademark was first I will punch a baby in the face. HE WAS NOT FIRST AS HE STARTED 4 DAYS BEFORE RELEASE DATE.

    • Yagermeister

      He was first. The first one to reach Prestige Master. He got it before anyone. Realistically he was hahahaha dumb ass.
