200M in all Skills

Recommended Posts

Basically, people do what makes them happy and fulfilled in life is what gemeos is saying.  if you think that someone else's lifestyle would make you unhappy then you don't have to take part in it, but that does not mean that they have the same opinion of what they like, what is right and wrong.

 

For me, someone who plays a lot but also lives a balanced life (not always because i want to i live with my parents and they keep me busy, I'm 17), i would say that at this point in my life i enjoy gaming the most on my free time and especially rs.  For me, i know my priorities, i am healthy, i do well in school, i have healthy relationships with friends, etc, and i can maintain playing 6-12 hours a day year round.  I have gotten my computer taken away, and i tried to do other things and i did not enjoy them as much.  I fill my time with rs because this is what I WANT TO DO. The thing is, everyone has different priorities, and different skill sets.

 

Dragonseance for example has graduated college with a double major with honors while maintaining a top rank.  Alkan was a varsity football and rugby player during high school and he graduated.  He still takes time out every day to go to the gym with friends, while also playing a lot.

 

Everyone is different and i think that it is completely unfair to judge someone based on their life style choices, especially if those choices don't directly negatively effect you.

Well, I think you guys are going into a spiral of misunderstandings again.

 

First you need to understand the defenition of "better things" for EACH individual. See, if I ask every single person on the planet what's the best thing to do, every single time I will get a different answer (if they give me a well-formed sentence) - I can garantee you that.

 

And with that comes the definition of shared reality. Once a psychiatrist told me that this had this "uncurable" patient (my favorite ones!) that drank blood every single day. I thought "finally they found a vampire!". So, I was extremely curious to know this new race and went to the mental hospital to see what I could do. I asked him "What are you trying to do for your behalf when drinking blood?" and he told me "Well, my tribe in Africa used to do that. It's one of our routines. I'm just making sure that I don't forget who I am". So we made an agreement that he could do it when he was alone on his home at night.

 

See, the guy was already on hospital for years! Just because he was following a personal routine. If it was on Africa, it would be ok. Just because it was on the west world, it isn't. To me, the same thing applies to Top Players. I've had top players asking me "I play RS x hours. Do you think it's an addiction?! Do you think it's bad?!". All I ask them back is if they're happy with themselfs and they always answered me "yes". To me, that's all it's important.

 

Top players can look at you guys and say "Omg, they go outside all the time. They must be freaks!" just like you do.

 

So, please, stop trying to understand other people. It will not work. You will not ever understand them or anyone else. That's like trying to stop breathing while trying to keep yourself alive.

The problem is that you're trying to turn an economics problem into a psychology one. Free time is a scarce resource and there are multiple ways to utilize it. Therefore, playing runescape in your free time has a cost. It's not any more complicated than that.

 

Runescape would have to be the most valuable way of spending your free time for it to be worth playing. I don't think anyone would be wrong to say that it is their most productive activity, but I'd have a hard time buying it.

Well the whole point of something productive is something that will make you happy, because at the end of the day thats what any decision is trying to accomplish, so having a hobby and having goals that make you happy to wake up in the morning and look forward to the next day at night is already accomplishing that end goal of making you happy.  I think that it is important to make sure you have something like this to make every day good, rather than always try and be productive for the future, however if your goals involve doing something else with your free time and that makes you just as happy as someone else playing runescape, then do that.

 

At the end of the day everyone is just trying to be as happy as possible, so it doesnt matter how you accomplish that goal

We'll just have to agree to disagree on this then. I consider a life of unhappiness to be a life not worth living.

But the point is happiness is subjective and your perceived concept of a perfectly happy lifestyle is just as wrong as the ones you are judging. People are unique and we all enjoy different balances of different things.

 

Some people are asexual/aromantic for no reason other than they don't feel those emotions. Some people absolutely don't go out and party because they don't enjoy it. There is nothing wrong with these people, they are simply being themselves.

 

 

Pretty sure his message is saying that most people most of the time would regret devoting 20-30k hours to runescape and that for any typical person to go after such a goal they would likely regret the years they put into it.

 

Sure you can balance life with runescape but you really can't and be a top player.

Ya maybe, i can see that.  Im pretty sure suomi said he has no regrets, and if some1 can look at it from the perspective of they enjoyed that time then they wouldnt, but i can understand where your coming from.

 

To each their own.

 

Anyway, back on topic

 

Can we get a time to 200m all update for Alkan, Dragonseance, Jdel, and i guess throw Geel in there for good measure even though he will be 3rd to 200m all

You don't have to sacrifice your life to gain exp. The point still stands that what you said is extremely ignorant

Suomi, Drumgun, Forsberg, et al sacrificed their lives to gain xp so I'm not sure where these top 200m all contenders with balanced lives you speak of are.

 

Last time I checked, it takes at least 20,000 hours to get 200M all without spins (over 30k for Suomi IIRC). Care to explain how one can remain a top contender for that achievement while playing in moderation? Be specific with your hours logged.

 

If your point was that anyone can get 99 all skills in moderation these days, then yes I would probably agree with you, especially if they were buying spins. But 200m all skills? No way, Jose.

 

How can you be this stupid?

 

 

Do you have anything aside from meaningless ad hominems? Your assertion is completely delusional - the math and empirical evidence is completely against you. It is not possible to get the sort of experience gains that top players do within the timespan that they do by just playing in moderation. It is simply not possible no matter how much you want to believe otherwise. That's not an insult or indictment of top players, it's just a fact.

Yes, to get top rank you'd have to sacrifice some aspects of your life, but I'm arguing against something you implied, that gaining exp requires it.

You can play like 12 hours a day and don't have to sacrifice anything, so 200m all doesn't require sacrificing anything major, besides, in a year from now it will be 5k hours so it won't matter.

Let me tell you one thing: if you're playing for 12 hours a day, you're sacrificing a lot, whether you're aware of it or not.

I didn't say gaining experience requires it. I said gaining experience at the rate that top players do it and within the timespan they gain it in does. There's a different between those two statements and it's not subtle.

 

Also, 12 hours is not 'moderate' gameplay even by generous definitions. That's more time than a full-time job, and half your day. It's completely astounding that you think people who sit at a computer (aside from say the well documented medical issues, such as say back problems, eye-sight, etc.) aren't sacrificing anything. They are sacrificing their health and a myriad of other things. You can argue that's their choice and that they have the right to do this, but it's completely unscientific, and not to mention pretty much contradicted by health sciences (physical and psychological), to claim that they aren't sacrificing anything. Again, it's not an insult, it's an observation. They have obviously chosen to do certain things, but it's obvious that they had to give up other things to do so.

 

Even half that time, say 6 hours a day daily on a game is barely moderate. By historical standards or even contemporary standards (depending on what place you look at it), spending 12+ hours on a purely non-productive, purely leisurely, and mostly non-educational activity is not moderate.

I have a problem with that "regret" thing people talk about so often and "unfinished business".

 

Let's be honest about your time. Whatever you have done on the past is a proccess that ended. There's nothing to "finish" and nothing to "regret" because you will NOT be able to change it. If you wanna regret anything, choose regret spending your time on present feeling bad about something that you can't change.

 

When my grandfather was dying from cancer he told me "If I regret anything that I have done, it is looking at my past while my future just pass by without me noticing it". And you can really change your future.

 

 

Let me tell you one thing: if you're playing for 12 hours a day, you're sacrificing a lot, whether you're aware of it or not.

 

Well, every time you do something, you are sacrificing another, whether you're aware of it or not. So, you're 24/7 sacrificing something that you could do instead. If choose to go through that, I would like you to save time and immediatly lock yourself into a mental hospital because that's what will happen to you if you bother with that too much. :D

 

This is one of the reasons why you should focous on doing what makes you happy.

Ofc it's not scientific and not according to "health sciencies" and I'm glad I don't agree with those.

 

Once I had an interesting client that proves that "health sciences" are crap. He told me that his routine before dating was work hard on his goals during the day and relax in his home for the rest of the day and he was a really happy guy. Then he started dating and was still happy and kept spending the rest of the day in his home but now with his girlfriend.

 

So, they broke up and he felt terrible and decided to go to a psychologist (health science professional, right?). So, the psychologist made him feel better about the broke up proccess and then the psychologist insisted that the guy had to change his routines. The guy asked "why? I am happy!" and she said "well, you need to be social and communicate with lots of people otherwise you can't be healthy!!!". So the poor guy changed his routines and indeed started to have more and more friends but he was also about to suicide.

 

So, he came to me and asked for my help. I told him "go back to your routine." He looked at me thinking that I was even more crazy than him but still decided to go back to his routine - what really made him happy. And he's now as happy as he was before dating and all the mess.

 

See, Psychologists work are based on statistics. My question is "What do you do when someone doesn't work like most people?". Not even a single psychiatrist or psychologist gave me a answer to that one.

I agree with more or less everything you're talking about on a philosophical level. But with that said, I don't think these ideas are very realistic or accurate explanations of real human behavior. In other words, you're talking about how people should behave, I'm talking about how people actually behave. You're right that most of the time people feel regret for no logical reason. But that doesn't change the fact that they do feel regret. You should make a new thread for this discussion, it's fun to talk about.

 

Also, if the guy was happy, then why did he go to the psychologist in the first place? That doesn't make any sense.

>Breaks up w/ girlfriend, "feels terrible"

>Goes to psychologist because he "feels terrible"

>Psychologist advises him to change his routine such that he can feel happy instead of feeling terrible

>Guy refuses to change his routine because he (suddenly) "feels happy"

:huh:

Why does it matter how people spend their spare time, weather it's hanging out with friends doing pointless stuff, learning new math (lol because There are so many jobs for people with math degrees) Learning to play an instrument, learning how to program,or drawing. You are still doing almost nothing that benefits society by doing the list of stuff i just said. Spending 8 hours hanging out with friends is the same benefit to society as playing a video game is. Unless you are finding the cure for cancer it doesn't matter how your time is spent.

See, Psychologists work are based on statistics. My question is "What do you do when someone doesn't work like most people?". Not even a single psychiatrist or psychologist gave me a answer to that one.

 

 

 

No. It's a scientific fact that sitting on a computer for 12+ hours can lead you to have all sorts of health-related problems. Secondly, perhaps you don't take psychology seriously, but I do. That's not to say there isn't fluffy stuff in there (Freud anyone?), but there's also loads of useful stuff supported by evidence about things such as normal and healthy behaviours, what constitutes a well-adjusted individual, happiness and well-being. It's not merely mumbo-jumbo. Aside from that, your anecdote is just that, an anecdote. The whole of psychology is not made irrelevant because of one case (which seems to be the implication in your anecdote). There are always extreme cases or unique cases or outliers. That some people can lead healthy lives despite playing 12+ hours does not make the generalization that it is not healthy/moderate/appropriate for most normal people untrue.

I'd like to inform you all that I've just recently leveled up to 1405... Unfortunately JaGEx nerfed my dungeoneering experience due to a long forgotten level cap, if you know of any skillers willing to help me there?

 

Slow and steady wins the race.

Do you mean having a Lv. 3 leech standing at base in every single one of your floors?

If so, I'm totally down for keeping a client window running when possible in order to have a lv 3 noob leech floors :P

Honestly this argument is going no where, we all know that people will do what they want, regardless if you agree with them or not.  Even if they regret its not your problem, and if they dont regret it its not your place to tell them they wasted their time.  Its just a game, play as much as you, sacrifice as much as you want and just live with the decisions you make its fine.

Let me tell you one thing: if you're playing for 12 hours a day, you're sacrificing a lot, whether you're aware of it or not.

Why does it matter how people spend their spare time, weather it's hanging out with friends doing pointless stuff, learning new math (lol because There are so many jobs for people with math degrees) Learning to play an instrument, learning how to program,or drawing. You are still doing almost nothing that benefits society by doing the list of stuff i just said. Spending 8 hours hanging out with friends is the same benefit to society as playing a video game is. Unless you are finding the cure for cancer it doesn't matter how your time is spent.

 

Funny you should mention that, considering that I am doing a maths major

 

Here are some interesting links for you to comb through. It took me about 3 seconds to make the appropriate google search. I have spent more time making this post regarding information that you cannot find, than finding said information.

That would be most helpful.

 

I'm not sure I'll be on RuneScape for a while though, I'll be traveling for work in the near future. I'm not quitting, just so you all know. I promise I'll be back.
