Runescape


It used to be so hard for me to train divination but now I can go close to another player or even use the same wisp they use. Like throw yourself in the middle of it all and you'll be okay! I still get heebie-jeebies when there's 8 players at once but I pick a wisp close to another player or we both use one by accident and I feel sort of like an aggressive player. Sometimes I run all the way far far away to get one away from players and some players come close to me and then I get turned on.

Something strange that happened to me was when I took Zoloft. I felt like the whole universe is so big and I started to hate how much time I wasted on online games. Since Zoloft works on dopamine I guess I was already receiving dopamine and didn't need to get it from online games? Yheaaa.

I've been playing runescape for 13 years now. Shiiiit.

This is why you just do the cache twice a day.

What's wrong with running away from reality if it sucks?

It's actually objectively pretty bad.

Although my account is also 14 years old and just yesterday I got my 4th 120 so even though it's a terrible game, I enjoy it a lot.

I have been playing again recently. I have off and on since 2004 I think.

So you kinda have anxiety while playing? I get that a bit now sometimes, never used to though. I was killing green dragons in the wilderness recently and attacked the dragon someone else was attacking and despite coming in really late got the loot. I wasn't thinking though. They didn't try to kill me so it was OK and then I switched worlds not long after like an annoying special event that comes and goes.

WoW is a better game but harder to get into as a new player imo, especially several expansions in now. I stopped playing around Cata and played from 2009 to 2012 on/off but only casually. Harder to fund membership probably too. I miss it though sometimes in a nostalgic way.

They were probably alright with it, it happens a lot after all. I'm kind of surprised they didn't try to kill you, unless they were a bot which is also pretty likely.

I get anxious when people speak to me, like someone comes and stands next to you and says your name, I am getting ready to hop worlds the second it happens.

I can't play RuneScape at the moment because my current laptop dies whenever I try to. It took me a while to get the hang of that skill. (I started playing in 2007.)

Wilfred Mott: Oh, Doctor... what about you now? Who've you got? I mean... all those friends of yours...

The Doctor: They've all got someone else. Still, that's fine. I'm fine.

Shiiiiit someone commented that they liked my username and I didn't say anything because my mood was a bit shiiiit. I did have thoughts in my mind about how hot their pixels were and commenting a thx you too, and also a wow you're hot. I also wasn't sure if they commented about me but it must have been about me 'cause we were the only ones there and our usernames were kinda the same. Shiiiiit man! I shoulda! Now they probably think I'm an old granny or rude! Feels bad man.

Replying would have been xp waste, you did the right thing.

I'm in a clan, they big like 400 people. They even gave out their facebook and I went to look at it and found out the owners are two young people my age who are in a relationship and they're ****ing hot as well. So I asked in the clan chat where I can find the lotto thread, you get picked for lottery I suppose if you cap in your citadel every week. Probably they think I am a noob to clans so I just chose to think that. And you can think others don't know the answer and you'd be doing others the favor as well. There's other things that they use such abbreviations for that I don't even know what they're talking about. It must be hard being a runescape or social noob, especially when you have to ask such questions which someone already knows the answers to.

I've actually missed multiple people talking to me recently because since most of the time that doesn't happen I'm not always paying attention to the chat window or like sometimes I log in and then do something else so I'm afk and then realise someone was talking to me lol.

This is why I hang around on the really quiet worlds so nobody speaks to me.

I wouldn't mind if people actually talked properly but it's usually just 'Hi, nice cape'. The **** am I meant to say to that? Thanks? And then the conversation is over.

@CloudChaser Thx, I like your cape too/any item. *crickets* Then you can ask another question like where did you get that item from?

But you want to make the conversation last longer, so pretend you care or ask another question. If you get lucky they might hit on you so change into a girl. I guess that's why they talk to me longer because of my girl character.
