Well in my opinion it depends what genre of game you're looking at:



In non-competetive gaming (MMO's and RPG's) a no lifer is someone who plays, ignoring all real life ambitions and burdens.



In competetive gaming (FPS and RTS and Driving) a no lifer is someone who plays for a long time, but only for fun, and doesn't improve much, and doesn't really use his talent in tournaments, just wastes his hours spent.



A person who plays properly would improve lots, play seriously, and use talent in tournaments to make it worthwhile. However they must consider how much more income they get from there job, when balancing out hours gaming and working.

This is how i choose to play; playing for fun does seem like a waste of time.



This may be a complete inverse of some people's no lifer opinion but hey, thats just how i see it.



SO basically all round, a no lifer to me is someone who plays for fun, which results in negligence of RL.

Yeah...Some people just go out of their way to ruin other peoples fun.

Sounds like Jagex to me...

That is, like, completly defeating the purpose of playing RS. Its a game! Play it to have fun <3: .

I think most people at some stage will no life.



For example I recently spent large amounts of time playing in order to get 99 firemaking, I'm talking around 4-7 hours a day (I sleep alot though so you need to make my sleeping time for this around 10-11 hours). I've since gotten 99 firemaking and since then have spent 0-2 hours per day online. This was all done during the school holidays.



I was no lifing then but I don't consider myself a no lifer because I don't do it that often. I think that people who consistently no life are those who could be deemed no lifers. I also don't think you can put a particular time limit on play time and then say that the person is no lifing, those numbers were just what I felt for myself to be no lifing.



This was also used as a subject for the Tip.It Times (well, sort of)

Someone who plays Runescape more than he/she either:



a) Spends time with their family.

B) Spends time at work.

c) Spends time sleeping.

d) Spends time at school.

e) Spends time at social events.

To me a no lifer is someone who puts RuneScape above their family, friends, and career.



I don't fall under that category. I play an average of 5 hours a day (sometimes 10+), but those other aspects of my life absolutely come first.

I play about 3hrs every 2 days, anyone who plays like 10+ a day has no life in my eyes. Some people arnt really socail life , for various reasoons, that doesnt mean they have no life... jsut means they dont get on with people that well.




Remember that it can come down to circumstance too. When i'm staying at my parents between semesters, there literally isn't anyone around for 5 miles in every direction. I've got a lot of friends in nearby towns but it isn't exactly feasible to make that trip every night, considering i dont have a car and local transport stops at 8pm.



I'm a really social person, and i can't stand going for long times without social interaction, that's why i play Rs when i'm home, to chat and generally socialise. If i don't have anything else to do i can happily spend 10-12 hours a day on and off on rs. Primarily to socialise, not to be anti-social. Likewise, while i'm back at uni and living in my house with mates, i'd rarely be online for more than an hour or so per day.

Watch the southpark WoW episode... No lifers are summed up perfectly.
If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.

If you find yourself avoiding social interaction if you even have friends by this time, or avoiding neccisities like eating and sleeping, then you are a no lifer.
