I did get Heart Broken from online game, I fall in love with some Asian woman from Canada! >.< It does sound silly, but eventually it happen to most of us!


Grind grind grind grind grind grind grind for hours on end. Then there's scammers. Then there's the overwhelming dissatisfaction of never achieving anything. The only thing that is remotely fun is quests, and that's when there's not a shit tonne of items a quest needs.

Yea quests can be repeative.... Grinding get boring but in World of Warcraft what motivate me is that Leather working/Skinning got bonus stat, for example Skinning get Critical Chances.. Also there lot of goodies in Leather working like Drums. What got me stay in World of Warcraft is being able to do Dungeons and PVP at any time you want without having to set up a group since the computer does that work for you!

As a Rogue in PVP its a Auto Win haha, its like having Hokuto Shin Ken (Fist of the North Star) :p. Especially before Blizzard nerf them, and adding the levels in pvp.. I was Combat Rogue and had no problem guarding Horde Flag, can easily take on two Alliance players due to resisting the Stuns and using Blade Flurry + Adrenaline Rush to fuck them up hahah. Problem is people are afraid what other think of them when playing as Combat Rogue in pvp instead of Assassination or Sub.. Rogues shouldn't be worrying about what others think about them, its about being Effective in Battle.

Now that Blizzard took away the Resisting to Stuns and nerf lot of Rogue ablities. I noticed lot of Alliance players got back at me by finally able to Stuns me :p.

But man Rogue back than was Overpower as well and still are! XD I did tried out Sub Tree, and instantly fall in love with them, but I feel that its too strong so I went back to Combat.. I see Combat Rogue as a Loner Samurai (Light Warrior sort of).

Edit: What I mean by Light Warrior is that they use leathers instead of Plate mail, More of using Sword to block the attack, counter attack and also dodges.

I was talking about Runescape. Quests are the best thing about Runescape. They're not shitty "Go kill this" quests. They have interesting plots, rewards, and objectives. Funnily enough they have a really obnoxious but funny quest that is a parody of fetch quests called One Small Favor. Someone asks you to get something and then you end up having to do a lot of tasks for different people because every person you keep going to needs something done.

But no the grinding in Runescape is literally cancer. You haven't grinded until you've gotten 99 in a skill in runescape. Completing Runescape would take well over a year or two of no life grinding. And I mean no life. 12 hours+ a day.

Oh and I never liked Runescape PvP. PvP in Runescape is way too high risk. When you die in Runescape, you drop almost everything you have on you.

I've heard that if I wanted Hard, more challenge online game.. Runescape is way to go. The way you describe the game, it really sound depressing! XD

Have you played World of Warcraft (I'm assuming you have).. If you haven't I highly recommand that you try it out. :)

Quests were great but man, grinding in Runescape was a blast, when there were actually a lot of people that played the game, you just chil and kill some lesser demons and have a good conversation with some randoms for a few hours. There are like soo many worse grinding games out there, like Final Fantasy XI, or most any asian mmo.

I will say that some skills that you needed to level, like herblore & farming really sucked.. so capping them would be a bitch.

It seems like you had a totally different Runescape MMO even though from your age, you probably played during the same era.

It's not hard in the traditional sense unless they're referring to PvP. The grinding is hard simply because it takes a hours of monotonous work. At least you can basically afk grind some skills. Others will probably cause your fingers to ache from clicking over and over and over though.

I haven't played WoW, and I have no intention of doing so. MMORPGs are not something I walk into lightly. They're time consuming and rarely very healthy to play. The last decent one I played was The Secret World... Until I completed all the release content. There's too much filler grind in between Transylvania and Tokyo so I got bored at that point. Story wise it was pretty good though. Good characters, world, and with fully voiced cut-scenes for every mission. Just a shame that I ran into that brick wall.

I'm not a highly sociable person, so I never really made friends on there or anything. At least from what I remember. At a guess, I played from late 2006, to 2012 or whenever they started doing pay to win. I did check out darkscape last year though. Became one of the first to get 99 fishing in it and then quit soon after because some of the stuff in it I felt was bullshit.

When I was in first grade, the only animation we had was Underdog, Danger Mouse and the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show! A new episode aired every week on just one of our three local TV stations ... and, if you missed one for some stupid reason like being forced to attend a family funeral, you had to wait 20-years for the DVD to come out.

And yes! We were among the fortunate few who actually lived between two major media markets so we could catch a local independent TV station AND all three major broadcast networks ... if someone was willing to stand in a chair holding a foil wrapped antenna over their head for the entire broadcast. With more air time than programming, It was the golden age of re-runs. I seem to remember one network ran at least one Star Trek episode two or three times a week, but every network ran two or three episodes of Gilligan's Island EVERY Freaking Day!!!! Deserted Island my ass. They got more traffic than my 3rd grade teacher did on a Friday night at the American Legion ... it was the 70's.

Anyway ... I spent the 80's, the golden age of pop culture, RPGs and New Wave, in high school and college ... so that alone almost made it worth being a member of the "Lost Generation."

Oh yea, I almost for got to mention staying up to watch the original black and white Dr Who episodes that aired late at night on PBS.

When I was a kid, I had after school club, extra tutoring classes AND 2 hours of mandatory studying to do at home. I remember bring 10 and pulling off my first all-nighter to finish some science project. Ugh.
