200M in all Skills

Recommended Posts

If he had simply continued at his old pace, he would have finished farming before thieving anyway. No, I think he's just finally lost interest in the game and is having a great time exploring some of the other things life has to offer.

it looks like it's still impossible to get 200m all, even if you have the time/cash, you'll lose your interest before :P

While his efforts to reach 5B total exp may have put real life 'on hold' for a bit, it might actually be a good thing to start thinking about where to go after.

Best to plan that stuff ahead, I'd say.

 

Also, the underlying reason might even be of a finacial nature. You know, a job and stuff.

At his age the 'sacrifice' he made for his goal is far from being 'normal', i.e. having the financial means / time to do it.

yea i ur late teens early 20s you have to figure out what to do with your life....I thought n0valyfe quit cause he realized it would never end. Also he was relying on his family for financial support and believe me i know that that can't go on forever.

 

Even if you have the financial means its still a huge time investment and their is lots of things that get sacrificed when gaming hours per day.

The laws of runescape.

1.Anyone with a higher level than you is a nerd

2.Anyone with a lower level than you is a noob

3.Anyone other than you and your friends is a kid even if they are older.

4.Anyone who dices rwts and shouldn't be banned untill after they rwt because its unfair to ban them before.

5.anyone who doesn't respond 6 seconds after a question is asked is a bot.

6.every update fails and will cause everyone to quit

7. sof is not a method of buying xp and never will be.

8.all skills end at 99 and anyone training past 99 should be questioned why they are training.

9.dg is a minigame

10.the only way to getting 200m in every skill is playing 15 hours a day. any less and it is near impposible to do.

11. you are not allowed to talk to jagex unless you are in the top 10.

I felt like sharing some of N0valyfe‘s words here, back from the time when he announced his retirement and wrote his farewell thread, since his name was brought up. I put a link to his old blog (located with The Wayback Machine) at the end of my post. Figured some might enjoy reading it or looking through the pictures at least, I know I did.

 

I included some hiscore screenshots of the top 21 too, from various dates, also taken from N0va‘s site.

 

 

Is this what I really want?

8:12 PM 9/27/2006

 

[RS] I went to Svulle and Yogosun's dual-maxing party yesterday. I feel proud to stand among such great people.

 

I have 35M xp left to fletch before I reach 200M. Anyone who has tried to talk to me lately might've found me to be distant and sullen...

 

[Me] The last few days have been very tough on my mind, and I don't ever intend to repeat them. Instead I had to make a decision, if not for the better then at least to lift my burden. I have been given a lot of time to consider the state of things not in Runescape, but rather outside of it. Friends have called me, family has worried about me, everyone wants me to move on, and I've turned my back on them for many months, because I thought I was reaching for something greater, something I WANTED, ie, rank 1 position in Runescape and everything that goes along with filling Zezima's shoes. But is this what I really want? I had to pace back and forth for hours, I had to walk around the neighborhood, I had to sit down with friends who have lived with me for years, in order to come up with an answer. No. It isn't what I really want, not anymore, anyway. The moment I doubted my very reasons for playing was the moment I saw my now-lofty goals come tumbling down.

 

Thus comes my decision--I won't renew my membership after October. I must quit while I'm ahead, before I slowly play myself into a permanently scarred mental state. Things simply have to move on, and I've lost sight of the very reason I began Runescape in the first place--to win glory and self-satisfaction by piecing together the perfect character. Skill total was all I ever cared for, and I fooled myself into thinking I was fit for bigger and better collections and completions but my very nature plays contrary to that. I can't ignore it now; instead I must accept it.

 

So, for the next month, I'll be living out my mortality.

N0valyfe‘s farewell letter

[hide]

Some Last Words...

 

As posted on Tip.it, Runevillage, and Runescape Community.

 

I feel obligated to write this letter to confirm and quell the rumors swirling around the top of the high scores. It's true that my membership expired on the night of November 3rd. It's also true that I retired from the high scores on October 24th. I've made no plans to renew or continue my adventures, even if it means the obvious drop in ranks and the absense of the Hunting skill appended to my character sheet.

Of all the former rank one champions in Runescape history, I must be the shortest lived, having graced the rank for less than three cumulative weeks. Whether I earned this spot or not isn't for me to answer. All I know is that my fight was not for ranks or fame. I wanted to prove to myself that it was not only possible to attain a perfect skill total, but that it could be done intelligently, efficiently, and elegantly. In short, my work here was finished months ago, but instead I chose to complete the 200M xp cooking and fletching goals. From here, I could've continued indefinitely--thieving would be next, then combat, then trade skills such as crafting, herblore, and smithing, followed by independent skills in fishing, woodcutting, and mining--but it won't end on my terms until I draw the line. Given a choice, I would rather retire here amidst sweet victory than forge onwards and let time and complacency draw the curtains.

Make no mistake, my appreciation of Runescape has not waned. If anything, it's grown a lot stronger. Ever since I acknowledged my retirement, I had the chance to examine my character, the community, the quirks and charms that make the game, and last but not least, the friends I've made, from an audience's point of view. This is Runescape. It's not the mindless repetition, or Jagex's customer service, or the addiction, or the hackers and scammers, or any of that nonsense the masses peddle out. It's the fact that Runescape exists, and as you play it, you miraculously transcend your meek existence to become an adventurer, and I was a part of it--no form of retirement can take that away.

If I could give one parting piece of advice, let Runescape remind you that life must be lived as an adventure. Every gold piece you make, every ore you mine, every monster you slay, is ultimately towards your own heart's desires--why must anything you do elsewhere be different? When your time has come, keep not the weighted burdens of hardships and pains but the priceless gems of experiences, friendships, and passions imparted by the spirit of this game. Fellow Runescapers, may your best adventures lie ahead.

 

Thank you all.

 

N0valyfe,

July 1 2004 to November 3 2006

Might be hard to understand why I would stop like this when I am so close but just gotta do what feels the best for you.

Definitely. Hope to still see you around now and then, sir.


Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Knowing the next player must be playing for almost a full year straight to actually max 200M all, the change of pace on this thread would be pretty drastic I would say.

 

Nevertheless, good luck in life, Suomi. The perseverance RS has trained you to cope with might come in handy one way or another, later on.

 

Guess we won't be seeing another max player.. for another half a decade. :P

Eh, good for you Suomi. It's best you're doing what you want, don't ever feel pressured that you're doing the wrong thing - it's your choice :P

 

Hope you have fun on your ski trip. Should be great fun :)

Although I understand and respect suomi's decision, it's sad to know that he isn't going for 200M all after being so close. Hopefully, suomi will still come here. Maybe join Off Topic section instead.

I am pretty sure that I won't be getting 200M all Skills. Was going to upload video about it earlier but still need to think about it. Pretty sure though.

 

 

Main reasons: The game isn't anything like it was over 10 years ago when I started. I have no trust in Jagex anymore. I got pretty much everything and even more than I wanted from this game, it was amazing. So many great memories/moments, it was a pleasure reading this thread too long time ago. Of course it's a shame this game ended up this way but nothing I can do about it.

 

Also I don't wanna ruin it for other people, other people deserve a chance too to get 200M all Skills first.

 

This thread and RS was so much more interesting for me when I wasn't maxed yet and people didn't think I was going to be there first.

 

I still log in sometimes to do Farm runs when I feel like it but going to Lapland to skii soon so won't be doing those either.

 

Probably uploading video at some point explaining more reasons but I doubt I am going to change my mind.

 

But honestly it was amazing reading this thread long time ago. Thanks so much to everyone for all the support and everything, I never thought I could make it this far.

 

In my opinion it will be very interesting to see who will make it to 200M all Skills first if it wasn't me. Of course I will still be following RS updates and this thread like I have before.

 

Not going to disappear anywhere like Zarfot and many other people did when they quit. I understand why they did it though.

 

But honestly thank you so much, I still hope to see someone get 200M all Skills someday.

 

Might be hard to understand why I would stop like this when I am so close but just gotta do what feels the best for you.
