    The OP has posted more than a few times on how he's "beaten" an MMO. Ego successfully fed. Time to empty that poop sock now.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    Whatever happened to the days of Everquest or Ultima Online when it took months to develop a character....... pretty stupid if you ask me not just this game but any game out thats quick.  I dont care if the person does rush thru it they shouldnt be able to hit max anything that quickly.

    Their not maxed.  He just completed a bunch of "stuff" and likely the "story quests".  No way he's a 50/50/50/50/50/50/50 or whatev's and as has been pointed out the Legacy Guilds are just now getting to tier 2... that means quite a bit to go.  We'll see though.  I do agree but people are now accustomed to hearing that glorious ding every 2 hours or else they quit.  Pavlovian.

    Yoshi-P came out and said these (the guys talking in the thread) are the first guild to reach that far in the final dungeon (post on second page), and they haven't yet cleared it yet. Bearing in mind that they're legacy characters running with some of the best gear from 1.0 then I suspect you're nowhere near.

    Non-legacy guilds are only just reaching this content.

     

    +1

    Still awaiting world first confirmation from those who had the best gear going into 2.0   The fact that it wasn't done the first couple days boggles my mind, but it seems there are different things they have to endure to be capable of it.

    1.0 was like that when it released.  They actually restricted experience gain to a certain amount per week with their "fatigue" status whereby they forced you to play another class or stop right there.

     

    Though as a whole, the only people who are 50 now are ones who have played 18 hours a day or who are from the original game.  No one to date has beat the entire game, and the few that claim to have are either lying or don't understand the systems involved (and how much they missed).

     

    I do expect a world first announcement within the next month or so given the new knowledge revealed about it.  Though the next raid will be unlocked in a little over 2 months as well.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    @OP - Rusque just powned your thread.
    @ Rusque - don't want to put the pressure on you now but when I come to the forums I am just coming to read what you have to say now.

     You give me too much credit... I believe the only other game I came here to state I've beaten was Neverwinter Online in which I even wrote a review with it.

     I'm also studying for more than just my CCNA. It just happens to be my major. ;)

    CCNA is considered study in your country? in my country around 90% of those who complete high school takes CCNA course as an off time activity. 

    Mtibbs1989, good luck with your studying.

    Unfortunately, you will be dealing with a lot of people like jesteralways. Which is why the IT industry can be a very annoying place to work, you will have people who don't know that much always trying to one up your accomplishments or proclaim how much they know.

     I'm well aware of the industry I'm studying in. I've spent the majority of my life around computers and I've had plenty of people call me a nerd, "no-lifer", geek, cellar dweller. It doesn't matter I enjoy my hobbies and career choices. So there's nothing one could say to make me think otherwise. People love to hate and I'm not going to stop them from doing so. I just get to have fun with it during the process.

    I think you missed the point of his statement. IT professionals in general are always trying to prove how smarter they are then the guy in the cubicle next to them. It's a minefield of 'one-uppers'. I can't think of the last time I was called a geek in a derogatory manner but having to listen to some Sys Admin tell me of how they saved the world happens daily. 

     

    On topic, while I don't understand the need to blaze through content... It's your money, blaze away! Just don't expect post on here how you beat the internet and not expect to get trolled but something tells me you already knew that. ~ Cheers

    yea man everyone have time to be good at game if they are good at , those who say i have family and fulltime job etc are just bad players and mostly those who yell on generals chat , how im doing this how im doing that. half of that time can be just figuring it out yourself and just get on with it. 

     

    You must be all of what, 13 years old? To make such assumptions.

    I have a 6 month old daughter who takes two 1-hour naps a day.  I guess if I wanted to leave her in a baby play pen all day long in between those hour long naps, I could probably play as much as I want and, by our definition "be good at the game".

    Or I could, you know, not be a crappy parent and play the game in my scant spare time.

    Crappy gamer > Crappy parent.

    I doubt there is much envy,  I think the "Hate" is the reaction people have to your post which comes off a bit needy, trollish and attention starved  :P

     As much as I like to poke fun at the people who couldn't play at all during launch you give me too much credit for being a "troll". Yeah, I beat the game, now it's time for me to finish the bonus content *slides on sunglasses*. It'll only be a matter of time until I complete the game (yes people there's a major difference between completion and beating; and I've only beaten the game and now I have to 100% complete it). So I'm off to run additional instances.

    lol, you're too much. You certainly are good at something i'll give you that. Seriously, i got a really good chuckle from that, thanks. No, not trolling you back, that was genuinely funny.

     Yeah, I had a nice grin on my face when Soki made that comment.

     You know, we all know that this website is a complete joke. I just love to take and throw the shots as I see them come. I don't quite understand the "it's your money" part. I'm not losing money by finishing the game faster than anyone else and everyone experiences fun at their own pace. I'm just faster than others while there are others that are faster than me.

    It certainly wouldn't be a long term course if one is studying "full time".  I've seen people get it anywhere from 30 days on up, but if he's new to IT in general, it may take a lot longer.   Depends on a lot of factors, really.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    You have not beaten the game, you finished the main storyline, and that's about it.

     Lets break this down so I can secure my "flimsy" excuse. Take Final Fantasy VII for example. I believe we've all played that right? Now, lets say you go through the entire game and defeat the final boss which is Safer-Sephiroth. After you defeat him you beat the game. However, that doesn't mean you've completed the game. There's still significantly more content to do throughout the world of FFVII and only until you complete it all you haven't completed the game.

     I'm sorry, I don't feel like having kids at the moment while I'm still in school. However, maybe in a few years I can use the excuse for not beating the game as fast when I have kids.
