A No-lifer is for me, a person that choses Runescape above his Social Life and School, a person that plays 10+ hours a day and cries for getting kicked from the Clan-Chat.




My thoughts exactly.

I agree with Dragon lord: i tend not to judge people. However, when I hear people say things like: I'm aiming for 1mil xp per day from now on, like I have often before, the world no-lifer does spring to mind.



I always play a lot more during the holidays, but never more than 5 hours maximum. Playing anything more than 10 hours again highlights a no-lifer in my mind. I don't see how you can fit it into a day while still interacting with even your own family.



I tend to go out/play sports/have friends round at least every other day, and playing Runescape for 10 hours sounds ludicrous. (spelling :?:)



OK, to play 10 hours on a day every so often in the holidays might be possible if parents are out and nothing else its on, but I would still see it as rather peculiar. If you have the time to spend 10 hours playing runescape, then surely you also have easily enough time to go out with friends.



To sum up, a no-lifer to me is someone who:

Puts Runescape above a social life.

Puts Runescape above work/shoolwork.

Puts Runescape above doing sports and staying healthy.

Gets mood swings irl from things happening in Runescape.

Plays more that 7-8 hours a day frequently.



A no-lifer isn't someone who has a high level (although they can be.)




Yeah, pretty much says it all :)



A no lifer is someone who sees Runesccape as his or her top priority. Luckily, I'm not one of them :<img src=:' />

Some might say I'm a no lifer (my mom in general) but I don't play all day, except on weekends. And school work usually comes first. I've never skipped school to play runescape or anything. But I'd be a lier if I said that runescape is a huge part of my life.




Same. I dont play at all during the schoolweek because I have a lot of work to do, and academics come first, but on weekend and breaks well..Lets just say I do play A LOT of hours.



But I spend all day on AIM speaking to my girlfriend and other people I know, get invited to parties, and just yesterday I went for a rather long date.



So how is it that in all my spare free time, im pretty much on Runescape, yet maintain a good social life?



I guess you could say I no life with a life. Think what you want if you really must.

Pretty much sums it up.



But you gotta remember some people got problems: depression, extreme shyness, bullying and other sorts of problems. Runescape is their way to escape all of it. They're just kids, you can't say it is their fault or their choice. Wait until they're 18 for that.

:lol: at the South Park reference.



I always think that the term 'no-lifer' is for anyone who puts playing a game first over something that is more important (examples include social life, school work, family relations, occupation). They haven't got their priorities right. You can't put a time limit on the term 'no-lifer' because it varies from person to person.

If you've ever used chinchompas (ironically, I haven't but I've heard from friends), or talked to someone who has, you know that you can get 300-400k range xp an hour. Add hp to that, and it's around 500k xp per hour, only 2 hours to get 1m xp, so the 1m xp a day thing isn't really an accurate accusation.



As for me, I see a no lifer as someone who chooses RS over friends and things. Sure, it's okay to spend most of the day on RS if it's only once or twice (I've done it twice in 3 years, parents were out of town and friends on vacation), but day after day is too much.

There's an old RS joke:

If someone has a lower combat lvl than you, he's a noob. If someone has a higher combat lvl than you, he's a no-lifer. :twisted:



Personnally, I don't judge people. So what if someone has a high combat lvl and an astounding total lvl? Maybe it just means they've been playing for a long time (maybe since the release of RS2) and does not mean they are nerds. :|

On the other hand, if the account is so new that they have yet to experience their first holiday event, and they're already going into the high-lvl crater in Bounty Hunter, while showing off a trimmed Runecrafting cape, then maybe it's safe to say that the player is a no-lifer (or that they had bought their account:P)



But for most people like myself, Runescape is just a way to kill some down-time during those whole 10 minutes a day where you just can't seem to find a reality show on TV (joking :P). You can't expect to play a skilling-based MMORPG and not gain levels! :shame:




Aha, the joke is too true.



I agree mostly with your post, except for the "playing for a long time" comment. I made my current RS account when RS2 came out, and my combat level is still 62, while I have no skill more than sixty-something.

"No-lifer"? Who the hell are we to judge someone based on their lifestyle?



The way I see it, if someone calls someone else a no-lifer, it's really none of their damn business (and they just want the resources said person is using for themselves). If you have ever called someone a no-lifer, take a good hard look at your own playing style.



Seriously though, it's no one's damn business what any high-ranked player does with their free time. That's their free time. If you're so concerned with their life and their time online, then you probably need to spend less time online as well.

You guys pretty much summed it up. I have pulled a couple 10+ hour days when I had nothing to do. But during the week maybe an hour, 2 sometimes. On the weekend obviously more.

There is no accurate definition of a no-lifer, aside from the strictest definition, depicting someone who has absolutely no life outside of the mentioned game, someone who simply plays the game and does only what is absolutely necessary for homeostasis in the real world, only because they cannot actually be assimilated in to the game.



An improper and stupid definition made by and mostly used by (There is no way to put this nicely, folks.) [wagon] and idiots is used to describe anyone of higher status within the game. This definition is mostly used by people who are themselves no-lifers by the above definition.



The commonly accepted definition is someone who has a bad social life, or no social life and does little more than play games. I myself would fit under this definition. I have no real social life by choice, and I do little more than play games. I don't sit at my computer all day and play computer games. I do other things. But the actual definition of a game is anything done for fun as the main motive. I believe that fun is the ultimate goal behind everything, and I do almost everything for, ultimately, fun. Therefore, I essentially do nothing but play games. The commonly accepted definition can apply to almost anyone, due to the vagueness of "bad social life," and the fact that, when you think about it, the ultimate goal behind everything we all do is for fun.

There's an old RS joke:

If someone has a lower combat lvl than you, he's a noob. If someone has a higher combat lvl than you, he's a no-lifer. :twisted:


Lmao. "there's an old RS joke" lolol.

Imo someone who takes games way too seriously (be it putting it as a priority in his/her life or becoming so involved in the game that he forgets to enjoy the real world) is a no-lifer.

For me, someone who refers to a rs "joke" with a phrase that compares it to a joke about life or something, is a bit too obsessed with the game.



But that's just me, and I'm in a bad mood atm :-$
