Some people spend WAY too much time playing.

I recently read in the forums that someone has done over 50 of the new Bozja 24 man runs since it has been out......

Let me say that again. They have done FIFTY of an instance that takes over 45 minutes to an hour to do, in a WEEK.

GOOD LORD!!!!!! I just can't.....can't EVEN imagine the.......PAIN of that.

If you average it out, that is over 40+ hours doing that ONE thing over and OVER for 7 days! That is the same as working a full time job for the week!

And WHY did they do this? It seems to try and get the drops inside. So for glamor purposes! I honestly HOPE they had the relic quest too so they could have as LEAST gotten 45 memories for the quest!

I am just totally shocked with this, it just boggles the mind to spend THAT much time so close together. I mean it's their life, they can spend their precious time the way they want to. But I just think what I could do with 40 hours in real life, how much I could use it to get productive things done.

I guess I am one to talk. Hell with this stupid relic quest, I figure I am going to end up spending about 11 hours on phase one and two getting all those memories and add to that about another 12-15 hours on the 24 man getting those 15 memories there.

But unlike them, I am staggering it out and NOT trying to do it all at once. I do 2 of each of void ark and royal city a day, which take about a hour total to do. (!0 min for each void ark, 20 min for each royal city.) Then I will probably do one of the new 24 man a day once I get to the quest for the memories for it.

Sigh, you know, I don't think I could do anything I really like for THAT much time all at once no matter what it was, the burnout would just be WAY too great.

I suppose I should clarify, it's not the fact that people play a lot during the week, it's what they are doing with that time.

Think of all the time you were in the game in the last week; say you played 30 hours total in 7 days.

Now think, out of all that time, what if it was ALL in just ONE instance, NOTHING else, just that ONE 24 man raid for the whole 30 hours.

Yeah, a little much, right? ;-)

The only way I can imagine this being bearable would be if the person is extremely goal-oriented or if they really enjoy the instance and find comfort in the repetition. I think it's Camus who said "One must imagine Sisyphus happy"?

Personally even if my physical biz allowed me to do this much gaming in a week, I wouldn't even do it all in the same game, let alone the same instance! I get bored doing virtually anything for more than 2 hours at a time. Wow.

My 2 years of play time on RuneScape beg to differ.

OMG Bear, I was NOT!

Ok, yes, but ONLY for like, I would say 6-8 hours a week and NOT all at once. God, that would have driven me insane.

Bite sized chunks Honey. Hell, after 2 hours in a row of it, I am ready to scream.

LOL, it's funny what you sat about repetition Lalli, that REALLY worked in your favor in Eureka farming. You just got in a grove and it was automatic while you were chatting with the party or instance.

Wow, Kupo, you mean you were like that in Runescape? doing ONE thing?

Towards the end I was mostly just fishing, once I already had my completionist cape. But then ARR came along and that was the end of that.

But still I had 2 years of playtime over the 9 years that i played. That's a lot of time.
