Why do u have to force yourself to work IRL even if its to figure out how to make money and be your own boss. How can you change your brain so that it shoots dopamine into your system like you're killing abyssal demons expecting a whip drop???

well do i make myself clear..

Yea
Work sucks irl is actually stressful/unpleasurable and that dopamine hit only comes when you get paid
Videogames are like a slow steady release of dat sweet dopamine

I understand WHY they're enjoyable, but what I'm pondering is whether there's a way to climb out of the skinner-box and somehow construct your real life in such a way that you can create your own operant conditioning structure for the purpose of self-control.

If you are looking for a website that utilizes the dopamine rushes of grindy MMOs for day to day tasks, I think there is a site for it. It was Habitica or something. You get coins as you complete your daily tasks, and get to level up your character, fight bosses, that sort of thing. It requires some self-integrity though.

Because mmos are addicted af.

When I was a young lad I made ~$1450 euros from Habbo Hotel. I traded items everyday after school and got a """job""" working with an official fansite where I was in charge of showing the average price furniture went for. I never showed what I had myself and made sure my items was raised slowly in price while i sold them off for real euros. Then repeat..

why dont you just duel on duel arena for mils and make real money?
my friend can make 400$ a day from this with several accounts and large bets. Of course it will take some time before you get good and you have to calculate the odds and always check if they have changed the rules of duelling - trying to scam you. But if you can get the hang of it in a couple of weeks you'll be earning a lot of money.

"life" is just a much harder game that most people are unfit/too dumb to play. life just has a steeper learning curve and it's extremely brutal. rewards are extremely disproportionate

use money or academic success as your measuring sick

What the fuck is poopsocking. I need answers.

leaving the computer to go to the bathroom is a waste of xp.

So you poop into a sock instead and are that much closer to being the first warlock on your server to achieve high warlord.

You're a retard. To put it quite simply if you're both level 126 there's a 50% chance you'll win. If you do anything else than maxed whip staking you're playing very risky.

The only way to turn the odds in your favor is bug abuse. I used a bug that got me a 66% win rate and managed to make a few thousand bucks in two weeks before the bug got patched. But even with those odds there were days I would make a loss. It's plain gambling and at 50% odds you will never make a consistent long term income.

What was the bug? You can tell since it was patched anyway.

I was able to take and utilize the Glacor cave boost outside of the actual cave, giving me a subtle boost in accuracy and strength.

How did you do that?

It's draining to make decisions.

There's no surprise in a video game, they're programs. Every decision in reality that you make exposes you emotionally to it's results. Failure or success.

Quite simply by leaving the cave in a certain way, I can't recall exactly, this was 6 years ago.

Games are designed to be continuously pleasurable.

Life is generally difficult as fuck. Getting rewarded requires doing things that most people are too lazy or too stupid to do - because they're not fun. If getting rewards in real life was fun, everyone would do it.
