Ray “Stallion83” Cox is an Xbox achievement hunter, playing hundreds of games to earn as many achievements as possible to rack up his gamerscore. His drive has kept him in first place for Xbox gamerscore for over 11 years — until Tuesday.
Unfortunately, Cox decided to get married and go on a honeymoon. Instead of playing games to keep his gamerscore rising, he was apparently too busy enjoying his new marriage, giving runner-up Stephen “Smrnov” Rowe enough time to dethrone the gamerscore king and take the record out from under Cox’s nose, TrueAchievements reported.
At the time of reporting, Rowe sits at a gamerscore of 1,592,530. Cox has returned to gaming and is looking at a gamerscore of 1,587,249. Both of the players’ scores are rising, so Cox will undoubtedly have to sacrifice some sleep if he wants to get back on top any time soon.
Cox didn’t seem too angry that his 11-year streak was broken based on this response to the news of his drop to second place:
Hopefully the honeymoon was worth it.
