It's legit as the xp from crafting is part of the GW2 game, and hardly force fed as they did it in not a huge ammount of time. If the guy had spent say two weeks playing 24/7 doing this you could say how sad, but they didn't. The leveling game can be beaten by doing the PvE in a few days as there isn't a progressive and steep xp leveling curve.
Goood for him, i hope he feels good about himself!!!
Personally, I am only level 22 and I am enjoying every moment I spend leveling my character without having to worry about rushing to cap so i can get straight into the end game stuff.
I don't understand people who rush to 80 to be first in GW2.
Rushing to the max level is something old, from a time of MMOs when hitting max level meant something, when it wasn't all to normal to even get max-level.
Today? Especially in GW2 with it's flat xp progression?It's about as worthy and mundane as talking to 100 npcs at the intro, or swapping weapons 50 times.It feels like a contest to who is first running to the toilet when you are having a drinking game. I'm not sure if i should congratulate him for that.
Game has changed.
It's sad how MMOs have become single player fests, it's better to play a JRPG, because I can spend 300hours+ only to beat the main storyline, without even exploring the entire world and side bosses.
In my opinion a MMO is a game where there must be progression and competition all the time, and manly: you can't progress without the help of other players, and the others will need your help too, it's not a solo fest, it is a clan-alliance-community oriented game, so it is not a linear solofest where you listen to a history.
Progression and competition make an MMO, when the progression ends, the game ends. When people started calling progression "grind", and also hated the fact that you couldn't progress alone(because you needed to be suppoted by your guild all the time and you needed to support your guild mates - which is the essence of an MMO), as well as they started calling the competition among guilds for world resources "ganking", so the MMOs turned into solofests, where you reach level cap alone in 1 week max(for lazy palyers) or 3 days(for hardcore), and also the pvp was banished and restricted within arenas(mainly due to the lack of reasons, objectives and consequences for an organized massive war among guilds in open world after the themepark plague).
Im not sure who told u he was 1st but its not true some other guy got lvl 80 much faster i think it was in 17h and 32 min sooooo...
sucks for that guy to go around and say that he wast 1st.
Tho I dont remeber other guys name but they did talk about him and twitch tv. The guy that got lvl 80 soo fast didint even bother to tell about it to any one his guild just was talking about him.
I guess he was really excited about the game and couldn't log off. :P
You have to act if you want to live in a different world.
I have to wonder how.
My guess would be feeding him massive amounts of crafting mats together with non-stop play, possibly dungeon grinding. But even then it is pretty crazy.
I know people like him are probably just doing it as a sort of race. Still, I don't really condone racing to the cap.

Agree.. It is a game not a fast lvling race. It is not fun when ppl being to much ambitions
Originally posted by Abor What the hell is wrong with you people? The player wanted to reach level 80 as soon as possible and that's his perogative. What's with the negative attacks? That he must want some giant epeen or that he's a loser in real life? You sound like jealous dolts who insult others' successes to feel good about yourself.
People just lack the capability to grasp the concept that someone else wanted to play the game in a different way. They just assume that their way of enjoying the game is the only one. That's why they say he is sad while all the pity should go their way.
Or there's always the possibility that they are just spiteful and evil!

I completely disagree. How someone else decides to level has no impact on my fun what so ever. So why should I care?
As to how he did it crafting exp scales based on level from what I have seen/experienced. And cooking, while alittle expensive at first is by far the highest exp of the bunch. Here's a hint since you can level down and do content without being to "op" for it. Save all of yourcooking shit while your leveling. Go out of your way to harvest if you need to. Then, when you are gathering the last tier of items go ahead and use up thoes mats. Remember to do all of the "research" ones. Tons of exp and good skillups for it so you dont waste as many mats. Oh one more hint, I cant remember the skill level but I think its around 200 some. Use your karma and do chocolate bar + oranges untill it doesnt give skillups anymore. I dont know if that one is bugged or what but its giving insane exp atm.

Lol, I thought it woulnt happen until tonight.
My thief is just level 15 but I explored, crafted and had a good time.

Yeah, you paid for it and as long as you try to enjoy it as much as you can you are (probably) playing it right.
Originally posted by Piiritus Well, 80 levels in a bit more than 30 hours is kinda quick. It took longer for world first even in Rift if I remember correctly and that game was ultra easy to level. Edit: Personally I think that achievments like this are brainless. Games should be for entertainment.
Thats his entertainment getting server firsts. Everyone plays differant
Originally posted by CalmOceans I don't play the game, was just interested in the thread. Just wanted to point that people who assume this character was played by one person are likely mistaken. People who choose to do this use 2 or more players, when one goes to sleep, the other plays the character.
Yup this is true. When EQ back in 01 released the Sullen Zek server PVP based on Good Newt Evil. Me and my friend rotated playing time so we were be one of the top people on the server. I slept he played he slept i played.
Originally posted by Voltje You sir are doing it wrong! ^^ .... oooh yaaay im 80 ... but have you enjoyed it? has it not become a total grind? when i will play it thursday its going to take me hours for me to lv 10 ^^
well now he can enjoy the game without the dumb grind that is lvling
Originally posted by Loke666 Originally posted by xenogias I completely disagree. How someone else decides to level has no impact on my fun what so ever. So why should I care?
OK…I believe there are lots of players who disagree with me but I think ambitious ppl brings the goldsellers and cheaters together. I dont mind and care anothers lvl ing or playing choose but If those who lvling fast (and also has a huge time and chace to play) overfill the dungeons or events, than yes It effects my gameplay and my fun..Thats what I think and maybe you will get it clearer than before.
To all those crying about the person who reached level 80 ; Who's the real idiot? The one that reached 80 in under 48 hours , or the cry babies currently playing GW2 that are bitching over this and will jump onto the next MMO release? ie : ArcheAge.
Good job to the frenchie and his buds.
Great. At least we can finish this topic now.
Racing to 80 in an MMO is like watching a video while pressing the fast forward button all the time. But whatever, he is 80, he wanted to be the first, he made it. I really don't care but gratz anyway. And my condolence to all the others with the same goal who didn't make it.
