Lincoln was quite the PvPro, as the stories go.

Also, a skilled and fearsome zombie hunter.

My greatest achievement thus far had to be getting Mortal Online installed, patched and actually playing.

Not a pleasant experience, and the end result did not help much either :)

I'll bite!

OK, so I play DDO, and our guild decided to take on the current ne plus ultra raid, the Tower of Despair, on elite, the hardest available setting. In theory this should be the most intense challenge DDO has to offer. Many pick up groups still fail, even on normal difficulty.

I decided to bring my bard.. a D&D bard is, in MMO terms a buffer, light healer, and off-tank melee. Many in DDO are fairly squishy, and mine can't take a ton of punishment, but he's built around melee and has rogue levels for evasion.

We hit the first big boss fight, the Judge and the Jailer and nearly instantly 2/3rds of our big bruisers are flung into traps and die! what's left are mostly our casters and our off-tank melees (my bard, monks and rogues). In this fight when you die you're in a penalty box, so the dead starting discussing restarting the raid when it becomes apparent that we survivors are going to pull this thing off. I danced in and out of combat with the bosses, dealing damage, removing curses and casting heals. I died, right as the last boss was going down, but our persistence had won the round. My dying words?

"As if killing the bard would impress us!"

Anyone who considers anything they did in a game an achievement is downright pathetic. It's people like this that makes all gamers look bad. Thanks for the stigma.... That and gamers that actually think their gaming makes them athletes and think gaming is a sport....Again pathetic....

Articles like this are the reason most gamers have to hide their gaming.

It's just like any other hobby. An achievement is an achievement--it's something you worked hard to accomplish and feel proud of, and even if it's an in-game achievement, you can learn from it and improve yourself. Go soak your head.

You're commenting on Massively so I'm just gonna assume you play some sort of game. The whole point of a game is to ACHIEVE, whether it be single player or multiplayer. Beating the game by definition is an achievement. While I do agree with you that competitive gaming isn't a "sport" in the traditional sense it can be considered a mind sport (basically everything that makes a sport a sport except for physical activity) because of the skill it takes and the competitiveness.

Let's see here..
People who play games they love and enjoy talking about it and sharing their achievements with each other?

or

People who play games they love but would rather stay in the closet and trash people that talk about their achievements playing the games that they love when those same trash talkers attempt those same achievements.


Also, games ARE a part of real life. They create bonding and so much more. It is YOU that is stuck on the stigma, not the people that enjoy it. You should seek help with your anti-social personality disorder. Seriously.

My greatest achievement has to be learning when to stop playing an MMO.

First it was getting the Lok'delar on my Dwarf Hunter, pre BC. That quest was a bitch.

Second would also be quitting WoW, post BC.

Getting GWAMM and now Champion of the Gods (50/50) in Guild Wars. I would have to admit that I would never go back and do Legondary Cartographer again.
