I mean after 100k TC it's completely useless.
I was in a crew with people for SS and two of them had Double Orbs on.
Seriously?
I know people like their pixel pride and like to show how much time they dedicate to the computer screen but is there anything beside nolifeing-rights (or bragging rights as some would call)?

I know my friend Juncy and someone called IV Missy IV (names are aliases to hide true identities and protect from name dropping)

So, can someone tell me why people like to "brag" over pixels and take it so seriously?
I heard it's because of a psychological deficit with an individual's social life or dealing with stress and/or emotional trauma when they resort to spending time on the Internet to avoid real life problems or to get away from their "lack" of qualities in real life so they bring it on the Internet.

I believe we have a person with an actual life right here.

Meh, I like to show off my Gaian accomplishments to give some worth to the fact I wasted almost seven years of my life on this site. xD

Besides, those who hardcore-play-everyday zOMG! take into account everything, including TC.

Well, I've never used Double Orbs, but I guess it's this feeling of expertise? Reaching a TC of 100k isn't hard anymore.
Moreover, I think 100k is as meaningless as 300k or 600k howevermanyk. Just shows that you spent a lot of time on zOMG and know what you're doing (probably). Plus, having a high TC doesn't always mean they will brag about it.

It's really completely useless after about 10k TC which is about when you have all rings at 10.

Maybe they set a goal for themselves and just want to reach it faster.
Why aim for super high TC? I dunno, why not?

Maybe they're using orb doublers for more orbs to craft Orb Aggregates for even more gold.

But hey, they're helping support zOMG! by buying orb doublers so no complaints here.

Unless they buy it from the marketplace.

Well personally I only use orb doubles for farming orbs for Orb Agg. For alchemy just complete a few forumlas. But whatever I have 20k orbs still saved.

I don't care much about a TC but I've seen people's TC over 100k
They just Smob or PS a ton for gold.

But I've seen people brag all the time about it because appearently it makes them so called 'elitist' and 'pro'
I don't farm for TC, it's just an added bonus for the time I spend farming.

Only if you tell me what double orbs have to do with how well someone plays

Because it's another way for members of the zOMG community to classify themselves as "better players", even though TC really means nothing.

I stopped caring long ago about TC. Nowadays the only use for orbs would be to use them in alchemy.

I'm still under 100k TCL after 4 years. It should mean something for me!! 4laugh
