I wrote how upset I am about having to regrind my rating in PUBG before I start competing for top positions. Currently I’m on 1685 rating, my climbing speed depends only on the amount of games I can play. That’s the definition of grinding. Hell, I could bot what I’m doing.
Then I got an idea. What if this is the point. What if it’s the same trick WoW uses to let players again and again “progress”. I estimated that reaching the rating that I can surely reach, 2300 will take about 37 hours. As resets happen monthly, with casual playing, I will keep climbing all month. Climbing is soooo much fun. I am getting better guys, I’m being more and more l33t, check out my stats!!!
I’m afraid this is another nasty trick to make socials feel good about their mediocre performance. Sure, 2300 isn’t bad (it’s top 0.1), but this is something that I can’t fail with my current strategy. 2400? Now that’s a challenge for the my current skills. I can fail that. Failing is not fun. Assuming I play casually, I cannot fail, because the game doesn’t let me get that far.
I am of course not playing casually. I am around 40% of my progress after a week. So I’ll reach my natural level at the middle of the month and will have like 10 days to bang my head to the wall. Maybe I get to top 100 this time. But if I don’t, I will be doomed once again to spend 2 weeks grinding trashmobs before the next bossfight.
Everything is WoW in video gaming, just with different skins.
