so every now and then I play some light\medium gaming (sims 4), and while I play I plug my MBA the whole time (about 3-4 hrs top) and ofc the small fan is going crazy. when I'm done playing I can see the battery is on 100% so I was wondering if plugins it for so long on full battery would ruin the battery?
btw I have the latest 2018 MBA 13'' 16 gb RAM 512 ssd.

It may ruin your life/productivity, but not really the battery... That said, it's The Sims, casual stuff is never a problem
