Playing Aion and other MMORPG - The best or worst decision of my life?

I’ve been playing a lot of different MMORPG during my years as a “gamer”. Born in the 90’s I started out playing Runescape which I though was an absolute bliss. I belive that those of you, who remember the game will be able to relate to my story better but it’s the same with any MMORPG game more or less.

We all start out with no equipment at all, trying to learn what there is to do, how to do it and foremost how to suvive in these massive and unfamiliar worlds. You quickly realize that you need some food. I will refer to Runescape in my example and there I stayed by the jetti for hours, fishing my trouts and eventually lobsters gaining levels in fishing as time passed by...

When my inventory was full I had to have an axe in order to chop down a tree to receive some logs. Then with my firemaking skills, the logs and a tinder box I was able to make myself a fire in order to cook. Obviously, I burned a couple of them even as a high level master chef.

My purpose for fishing and cooking was to prepare for my epic journeys and battles. However, most of the time I just sold my fish inventory to worriors visiting the docks or providing my frinds with HP. Sometimes I was even standing beside battle as a second food inventory in case things went wrong while they were making fortunes collecting tresures from all the high level creeps they could kill.

MMORPG reflections 

I belive we all start out playing MMORPG to become this great champion we are told to become when we enter the game. But somehow, a long the way,some of us settle to play a satisfying role which suits us for whatever reason. As I said, Runescape was a bliss to play but how can I enjoy working for others in a game were, “In the end it doesn’t even matter”, as Linkinpark would have put it. I don’t enjoy working so why do I enjoy taking on the everyday struggles in MMORPG games? Maybe fishing in Runescape is a bad example but I could just as well relate it to grinding gold in WoW or making runs for items in lets say Diablo.

My life today - I switched to esport betting

Today I see myself as a retired gamer with the exception for the mobile games that I bring with me to the bathroom. My conclusions after realizing how much time I spend “working online” is that I rather get the best out of the games and not the opposite or reversed were the game is getting the best out of me. As for now I make real money from my knowlegde and background in gaming. It all started about the same time as esport bacame huge in Sweden. As the Swedish guy that I am I went into the esport affiliate site, picked an online operator which I liked (big welcome bonus helped) and got right to it. My extensive experience in both WoW and LoL made it easy to bet on basically any team in any tournament. I’m not mad at myself for not switching to a grownup game earlier since I enjoyed it all, but my wise words to you is to question your gaming and to invite you to get in on the real action, which is e-sport betting.
