Gaming is a great escape.  But the only folks that I feel deserve to state that what they are doing is a measurable accomplishment, are the disabled, or folks who are dealing with various struggles in their life.  In other words, if mmorpg'ing is the one positive outlet someone has, then by all means pursue it.  I read once that Robin Williams used online gaming to deal with his addiction to cocaine.  He beat the habit.  That there, is an accomplishment.

 

Keep gaming - I know I will.  But measure it in very small amounts versus the real accomplishments that come with every day life.

 

 

Embarrassing.

 

OP didn't state any comparison of 'accomplishments' in MMOs to that in 'real life'. No way to gauge how he/she defines either. They stated their terms obviously enough.

 

You don't define other peoples accomplishments. That's up to them. But congrats, you have accomplished massive levels of patronising. In REAL LIFE. Kudos.

I guess the closest thing would be killing my first Jedi bounty in SWG.  I can't remember what my class mix was at the time other than enough BH to take the missions and some Rifleman because I did a killing blow at range.  It was a big deal to me becuase I had spent several days tracking various Jedi to only lose them to buggy tracking droids or to find them locked in their houses doing afk macroing.  So when I found this Jedi out in some Tusken Raider fortress thing out deep in Tatooine actually playing the game and killing stuff, I just simply opened up on from the most extreme range I could get with the rifle and dropped him and KB'ed all within a matter of seconds.  He must have been a fairly new Jedi to drop so easily.  Also there was no way to tell how strong the Jedi were back then unless you recognized their name.  However, it was still a great feeling after all those failed attempts and grinding to get my spec to where I wanted it so I could kill player Jedi.

Like the poster above me...well said.

An accomplishment doesn't have to mean the greatest thing you've ever done. All it means is that you set a goal and you reached it. Your greatest accomplishment in a game probably shouldn't be your greatest accomplishment in life but it can be meaningful to you.

My greatest was actually getting a high level toon in Lineage 2.  Never thought that I would do it.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

I had level 50 in Everquest in my mind instantly after reading the title of the thread.  Not only that, but I was the first maxed gnome warrior on my server.

I think you missed my point. Being addicted to alcohol and quitting is a massive achievement to those people. To call them out on it and heckling them is just childish. Same goes for MMOholics.

I got your point, and of course it's a massive achievement for them. But posting about it in a thread designed (presumably) for drunken highjinks seems misplaced and self righteous.  If you quit drink or MMOs or anything then by all means post in a thread designed for that purpose or create one yourself.

 

Besides, rudedawg may not of been an addict. Rudedawg?

He might have been self-righteous. But all this has shown is the insecurity of both Dogblaster and Rudedawg. If Dogblaster felt targeted by a random comment on an open forum he obviously has some issues with either leaving MMOs or his life outside the virtual worlds.

 

Maybe it would be wiser to not defend Dogblaster for his insecurities and just politely comment on Rudedawg post that it is out of place?

I have several server firsts and possibly even a world first (with a particular class) first to max level achievements in MMOs, but honestly I don't feel like these are my greatest accomplishments.  If I had to choose one, I'd say the farming party we had in Everquest.  We were a single group of 3 people each dual boxing that had several valuable lower end raid spawns on lockdown on our server and we made a small fortune selling the items and platinum through RMT.  Back then there weren't many if any bots / gold farmers so things sold via RMT were very valuable.  Selling the items and later my accounts I basically paid for college including apartment expenses and furniture. 

By PoP our farming rotation looked something like this:

Lodizal (easily doable with a single dual boxed character)

Zlandicar

Wuoshi

An Acidic Mass

A Horror Construct

The Insanity Crawler

Trakanon

Nagafen (Mainly for bag and CoF)

There were a few more in Luclin, but I don't remember their names.

#1: Ive played Dark Age of Camelot on Andred, Mordred (FFA PVP Servers). Probably best mmo times in 15y.

#2: 1st Lvl 60 Samurai on Bismarck server in FFXI. 

#3: 1st lvl 50 in World of Warcraft in my country (had some screenshots in some magazines, local ones).

#4: Server 1st for 5 months in SWTOR, rank wise. 

#5: 15y of mmo experience and more to come :)

The sad thing with mmorpgs is that there isn't anything unique you can do, that would make you stand out of the rest.

Which doesn't stop millions upon millions of gamers from living a desperate, continuous bid for e-fame.

Feeding off all of the inferiority/superiority complexes, the status drives, the Type-A's, encouraging special snowflake; the seedier side of gaming development.

 

My five minutes: a server first LK, and a statue (not even dedicated) in Dalaran. Yay, we're famous in our tiny corner...whattya mean, "who am I"? Look, I'm wearing the trophy gear (at least until the next raid gets added).

The five minutes before that; I was a performing bard, original compositions, annual bardfest that still takes place today. Melghoren's Reach. I put the moons in the sky. Head of critter design, worked Events for a while. The fun I had tormenting Players touring my Office segment once a year. Designing some Unique scripted items that eventually became some of the most valuable in the RMT trade...ambivalent about that one, toys were cool, their eventual fate (lockered, hoarded, traded for Ca$h) was not. I spent a couple of months designing and building a puzzle-based quest that survived a whopping six hours (before the 'walkthrough' solutions appeared on the internet).

I think most staff are proud of some of the things they have done, and ambivalent about others. Can't always control what the players do with the neat things you put together for them, or how they react.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

What's embarrassing is you didn't understand the post.  Perhaps you personalized this to your own sense of alleged mmorpg accomplishments and didn't have enough processing power to get that I merely stated that "so called regular folk" should be leveling in real life, not using an mmorpg to gauge accomplishments.  However, I didn't want to seclude people with disabilities, since I have a few friends in that boat (one has severe PTSD from time overseas in the army)....I defended their right to state somethign online could be an accomplishment.

 

So yes...embarrassing is a good way to express your perception here.

I feel like you can't read. (Maybe English is not your first tongue, I honestly don't mean this to patronize)

 

Neither dogblaster or rudedawg (I can't believe I'm typing this) has shown insecurity.  Rudedawg's (really?)  post was out of place, and egotistical in its design to shift focus of the thread to...I don't know. The expression troll has been used in lesser circumstance.

 

RE: Dogblaster  "he obviously has some issues with either leaving MMO's or his life outside the virtual worlds."  Conjecture. Completely. Nothing he said could allude, never-mind justify this.

 

So no it wouldn't be wiser to defend Dogblaster for his insecurities (for they don't exist to my knowledge), And Re: Rudedawg, A) His post was riciculous and SO out of place that rehabilitation isn't an answer and B) His name is rudedawg

The hunter epic quest back in vanilla WoW would be a good example of decent gamish accomplishment. Soloing Valley of Death in AC1 with a CLaW mage (Creature, Life and War) without melee defense of course was quite fun too, kept you on your toes during fights that lasted half an hour.

This wasnt a solo accomplishment but these are mmorpgs. I would have to say defeating the Lich King in Wrath. Was really my first taste of raiding and when we finally defeated him, I did have a sense of pride and felt comradery for the first time in a video game. The lich king is who brought me to wow. I set out to defeat him. I had never played mmorpgs prior, little did I know mmorpgs were not a 4 hour gaming session to which you can beat fhe game in one day, but rather a living world to which you could progress and socialize. I had a tremendous amount of build up leading to the defeat of the lich king. Considering all other games I had ever played I was able to win in less than a week and I had been chipping away at the lich king for over a year. After he was defeated it was like a weight had been lifted off of my chest. I never raided again.

Not really an acheivement since i didn't get anything, but still one of the funniest moments of my MMO history:

Some rich guy with dragon claws and yellow partyhat came into runescape wilderness, followed by like 15 people (guess he was famous). I was using my antirush setup with d bow and 2x vengeance. I went and stood like 10 tiles away from him, and soon enough, he d clawed me. I got him to like 5% hp, and he got teleported by ring of life, leaving all his fans there laughing.

(yellow phat was worth ~800 mil at the time)

Quitting.

There is nothing innovative about mmo's.

Their all the same retread of the same stuff.

Real life is so much better.

I applauded at this.  The moment you consider an mmorpg an accomplishment, ask yourself what was going on in your life that you neglected.  How was your relationship life?  What education were you pursuing?  What were you doing to level up "in real life?"

 

Gaming is a great escape.  But the only folks that I feel deserve to state that what they are doing is a measurable accomplishment, are the disabled, or folks who are dealing with various struggles in their life.  In other words, if mmorpg'ing is the one positive outlet someone has, then by all means pursue it.  I read once that Robin Williams used online gaming to deal with his addiction to cocaine.  He beat the habit.  That there, is an accomplishment.

 

Keep gaming - I know I will.  But measure it in very small amounts versus the real accomplishments that come with every day life.

 

 

Embarrassing.

 

OP didn't state any comparison of 'accomplishments' in MMOs to that in 'real life'. No way to gauge how he/she defines either. They stated their terms obviously enough.

 

You don't define other peoples accomplishments. That's up to them. But congrats, you have accomplished massive levels of patronising. In REAL LIFE. Kudos.

 

"HEY DISABLED PEOPLE, YOU CANT 'ACCOMPLISH' WHAT WE ABLE-BODIED CAN, PLAY THIS MMO"

 

Embarrassing.

 

 

What's embarrassing is you didn't understand the post.  Perhaps you personalized this to your own sense of alleged mmorpg accomplishments and didn't have enough processing power to get that I merely stated that "so called regular folk" should be leveling in real life, not using an mmorpg to gauge accomplishments.  However, I didn't want to seclude people with disabilities, since I have a few friends in that boat (one has severe PTSD from time overseas in the army)....I defended their right to state somethign online could be an accomplishment.

 

So yes...embarrassing is a good way to express your perception here.

What part didn't I understand?

I don't have any pesonal MMO accomplishments. Nevermind Alleged. Did I allude otherwise?

LOL at processing power. Yes you said, it's mandatory for 'regular'(not disabled) folk to level (so much lol) in 'real' life to gauge accomplishments....

......but 'irregular'(presumably) (disabled) folk can get get legitimate accomplishment in MMOs....

 

You're embarrassing. The way you define or understand 'accomplishment' is embarrassing. The way you pigeonhole the disabled is embarrassing.

I think you missed my point. Being addicted to alcohol and quitting is a massive achievement to those people. To call them out on it and heckling them is just childish. Same goes for MMOholics.

I got your point, and of course it's a massive achievement for them. But posting about it in a thread designed (presumably) for drunken highjinks seems misplaced and self righteous.  If you quit drink or MMOs or anything then by all means post in a thread designed for that purpose or create one yourself.

 

Besides, rudedawg may not of been an addict. Rudedawg?

He might have been self-righteous. But all this has shown is the insecurity of both Dogblaster and Rudedawg. If Dogblaster felt targeted by a random comment on an open forum he obviously has some issues with either leaving MMOs or his life outside the virtual worlds.

 

Maybe it would be wiser to not defend Dogblaster for his insecurities and just politely comment on Rudedawg post that it is out of place?

I feel like you can't read. (Maybe English is not your first tongue, I honestly don't mean this to patronize)

 

Neither dogblaster or rudedawg (I can't believe I'm typing this) has shown insecurity.  Rudedawg's (really?)  post was out of place, and egotistical in its design to shift focus of the thread to...I don't know. The expression troll has been used in lesser circumstance.

 

RE: Dogblaster  "he obviously has some issues with either leaving MMO's or his life outside the virtual worlds."  Conjecture. Completely. Nothing he said could allude, never-mind justify this.

 

So no it wouldn't be wiser to defend Dogblaster for his insecurities (for they don't exist to my knowledge), And Re: Rudedawg, A) His post was riciculous and SO out of place that rehabilitation isn't an answer and B) His name is rudedawg

YELLOW: Dear god, mate. If I couldn't read, wouldn't that reflect on my writing/spelling capabilities?

 

RED: Dogblaster obviously felt targeted. It's a defense mechanism called "Superiority Complex". As soon as he read the post he felt like he was being judged for the time and importance he allocates in MMOs. He is most likely having troubles either leaving an MMO or building a serious relationship (not necessarily intimate) with someone outside the game. It is not healthy to only be friends or date people whom play the same game as he does. It leaves rarely any room to grow as a being.

Rudedawg was showing signs of projection. Rudedawg thought that having accomplishments in MMOs are unfavorable attributes to have, hence he felt the need to note that by commenting as he did. Whether or not he had problems to stop playing MMOs were purely speculations. They are both insecure.

 

BLUE: It does. He clearly felt targeted by it. Usually when people feel targeted by something it is because they can relate. When he felt like Rudedawg was trying to boast about quitting an MMO and "saying" that he was better than him he took it personally.

 

GREEN: Your name is Monkey_Crusher... Come'on mate. You're making this too easy.

 

Anyhow, I base my assumptions on psychoanalytic theories, I'm guessing it isn't an area of your expertise. Feel free to read up on "Superiority Complex" and "Projection".

I have had many, many accomplishments in my MMORPG history, but I cannot think of any that would eclipse this:

 

Getting level 50 in Everquest (when it first came out many years ago).  It was NOT guaranteed to get there (like so many games now) and it took my many, many months.

 

What is your greatest accomplishment?

Everquest 1, Magician: Epic Orb of Mastery, or Epic 1.0
