    My high horse? So I am on a high horse for telling you that you don't know anything about this guy other than his amount of toons and that your assumptions are arrogant?

    Then you must be sitting on a bloody giraffe.
    You are damn right its his decision. I'm pointing out that his decision is not a wise one. Deal with it. If he wants to be a contributing member of society and wants to better himself, getting out and being social and productive is how he can do that. If not, he loses out on many life experiences that could bring him happiness that he never will have by being a basement dweller playing WoW all day and night.

    Im done with your nonsense, and you are just about to go on my ignore list Rorcanna.

The fact is, he could be spending his time more wisely, contributing to society, affecting other peoples lives in a positive manner, getting out and socializing. If he is 12, an adolescent, teenager, whatever, then great. Its still not a wise choice of how he spends his time.

    He could do more good for himself just by simply being around people in real life than in a video game.

    He is the one who openly created a thread for people to discuss how he spends his time! lol, you need to get off your high horse and get with reality. If hes going to post it on a public forum, then he better be willing to receive scrutiny and criticism for his actions, even if its not the type of criticism he would like to hear.
    He said he leveled them while spending time with his friends. If he leveled them all solo without communicating to anyone else I would agree with you, but I'm in a situation where I only have a few hours a day to play video games because of exactly all the stuff you mentioned and I still have all the 85-90s I've got in my sig (without really focusing on leveling alts) and I can't imagine that this is in any way a "nolife-scenario". 140 days of /played like you mentioned (since Cata, was it?) isn't much compared to what's average for a dedicated gamer who still has a social life and works full time.

    The truth hurts. You know nothing about people on the internet. Deal with having no power to tell others how to live their lives. I hope you live as you preach and do A LOT of good for society but I somehow doubt that considering how you sit here on a giraffe telling others what is the right or the wrong way to live their lives based on YOUR values.

    50 90s? wow, I feel like that's more sad than impressive, but sure.

    I learned the hard way a long time ago when mocking someone for having 50 characters (not all at level cap). We were discussing alts, and this person mentioned they play between 8 and 12 hours a day. I was being an ass at the time and asked if they'd ever even seen a naked girl other than free porn sites. The OP responded by linking their facebook page and their personal site which were linked together to raise money for his son's cancer research. He had a serious cancer stage by the time he was 12. The hospital had him in his own room, and provided him with wifi. His dad bought him a used laptop and installed WoW on it, playing with him every day since he could not get out and play with others.

    Between his chemo treatments, and time spent puking, he said WoW calmed him and gave him access to people when the real world restricted him. He died in 2008, and even had a character and quest placed in his honor.

    I learned humility the hard way. Now, I caution others and regret everyday being a dbag, and consciously try to show everyone an equal amount of respect.

    Agreed. There are /played threads on this very forum with people who have over 1000 hours of playtime. If they enjoyed themselves, I say good for them.

    I have to make assumptions based on the information he provided. Now if he said he did all this over the course of 8 years, playing an hour or 2 every other day, then that would change my outlook now wouldn't it? But based on what he provided I can only assume that this person wastes his time playing for hours on end every day and not contributing to society.

    IF wow is something he enjoys thats fine. But to take it to an extreme like he clearly showed with 50 level 90s, then thats bad. Even licensed councilors will tell him that he should be spending his time doing other more productive things. Its not a secret that isolating yourself, or even playing with your "friends" or "online friends" will be more detrimental to your mental and physical health than if you get out and do things socially outside of a basement / playing computer games.

    Always nice to see when someone has taken on that stance. <3. It's a lesson far more people need to learn but sadly, most of them don't. They go through life thinking they are the pinnacle of human perfection in every single way and that it is their job to force this onto every lesser human.

    I would caution people against insulting players who have put what appears to be too much time in this game, I've met a few players who pretty much only have the use of their mind and hands to play this game.
    For some it is a refuge in a life that has very little else to offer them, some of these individuals die far too early and I wouldn't want the last thing another human being to say to them is what a waste of life they are.

    One example of how playing WoW allows a person to have access to people and socialize. That is the exception to the rule. Sure thats great that he being a cancer victim had the opportunity to be calmed and helped by playing a video game, but thats not the case for everyone in this world. Its surely the exception. The majority of gamers are otherwise capable beings who just choose to waste their time playing games. Sometimes excessively, which is what I am combating with my response. Is it okay to play games? Yes. Is it okay to play excessively? No. Even the WoW game tips on the loading screens says "remember to take everything in moderation, EVEN WOW!" They know themselves that playing too much is a bad thing, they even put a tip / warning on their own damn game.

    No, you don't. I'd rather guess that you WANT to make them and you WANT to sit on your giraffe. But, maybe you have a need for it and maybe it brings you some sort of "productive" result that we can't see from our end.

    I choose to not be that way, and that's really all there is to say since people rarely can be changed by strangers over the internet.

    I have 30 level 90's. multi-box x5 accounts = loads of 90's with little to no effort.

    Create, leave rested, use next x5 until rested gone, switch to the next x5 rinse and repeat. Mind you alot were level 85 so was easy to continue to level through rested state dungeoning.

    Been boxing since BC, easiest fastest way to have an army of alts, alchemists and whatever profs you want without the boring solo play and grind.

    Cannot imagine how people actually do level alts 1 at a time, when I can level x5 in one go, with no real effort and keep it flowing if I want in a quarter of the time.

    What is your goal with your 90's ? I presume you have an army of alchemists ???
    This soo much multi box make everything much easier.

    But level 50 chars on the same account is no easy task.

    I just don't have the use for 50 90s. It's only for bragging, and I have not many people to brag to.

    It was a hard lesson to learn. After attending the ingame memorial (which I had to make an alt for), I left the game for almost 6 months to get my perspective straight. I was foolish enough to act with mob mentality rather than thinking for myself. I was truly ashamed. I don't have kids, and really don't want any, but I would never wish anything like that on anyone, even adults. I am thankful for that young man. He showed me how lucky I am, and how life is whatever I make it.

    Judging others should NEVER be an initial response, especially with extremely limited information. People make assumptions, and they are usually wrong. I hope before making more assumptions, Jaylock will learn to ask questions and formulate a complete assessment based on facts, and not just assumption.

    Amen to that. Also, much love for your avatar ;p.

    gzz for this..don't listen to the people who say otherwise...this game is out 10 years now and if someone goal is leveling is not that bad to aim for that. Most people spend incredibly amount of time just doing dailies/achievements/raid/dungeons which others chose to use on leveling. Some of them who blame you as no-lifer I bet they have more /played time than you.
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Yea, you really know nothing about me, and certainly not enough to make any sort of assumptions on my life ;P
    But let me enlighten you anyway. I'm 23, I live on my own, I'm undergoing education 5 days a week 8-15. And I'm in a healthy relationship.
    So, by your standards, how should I be spending my life exactly? Since you're clearly such a great judge of character and you know everything.

    I am quite sure this thread wasn't made to make a review of another player, do not think the OP was thinking of this topic suddenly turning the discussion into what he originally wished to share. Please do not make assumptions upon what you think it may be, this thread seems more like a kind sharing and not a "Please review me thread".

    So I would expect people to turn away from peeling at the user and actually either use the topic or not.

    Unsure about the OP, but being called a "basement dweller" would be slight insulting if it was in my presence.
    If you disapprove of moderation, seek an Admin or Global Moderator.
