What do you mean by no lifer?

Recommended Posts

No-lifer is a word used by people to describe (or insult) people who have something they don't.


There is no meaning or truth in life but that which we create for ourselves.

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.

no social life? :thumbsup:

 

 

 

The question is: how can you kill something that has no life?

: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:

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 :-$

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.)

 

 

 

if I play hours upon hours to get something, and I loose it, I'd be pretty PO'ed...

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.

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)
