Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game or MMORPG is a type of online gaming where a very large number of players interact with one another within a virtual world. It has its own community and depending on the game has their own version of clans, guild or tribe.
Players, same as in any other Role-Playing Game (RPG), get to choose their own race and class. They need to play the game to earn experience and to level up; earn money to load their characters with gears and the needed weapon. The quests are essential for earning items as well as a huge number of exp(experience). Depending on the creators, there are games that are free-to-play or pay-to-play. Within the game, one can also purchase items that can be used to enhance the capability of each character.
As for me, I like to play free-to-play MMORPG. It’s a stress reliever for me and at the same time, it’s a form of socialization also. If the game play is really engaging, I stick to the game and try my best to level up and get good gears. As of the moment, I’m playing Neverwinter. You can check their official website here.
I’m not the type of player who uses real money to advance in the game. I take my time earning my exp and at the same time creating weapons. Though, as of the moment my gear scores are a bit low due to my inability to acquire some good stuffs. I don’t read everything that were posted on the game site as a tutorial for beginners. I like to start the game as soon as possible and let the game teach me what really needs to be learned. I also like asking question to players. Haha. I mean, I don’t read a lot because I think there are players who are really willing to teach newbies on the what, how or why in the game.
These past few weeks have been very good to me, when it comes to my gaming experience. I met and joined a good guild wherein people are really supportive. And I also met a random stranger who asked me why my pet is a low-rating pet. He/she offered me some pet but they were bound to him/her so she can’t really give it to me; instead, he/she gave me a rare weapon for me to use. I was a bit shocked by this generosity because this is the first time that someone gave me a good item in exchange for nothing. Nothing. The stranger just told me “you’re welcome” then left.
It’s a random act of kindness online. I didn’t really get his/her name in real life but then, maybe the stranger want it to be that way. In this world where kindness to one another seems to be tainted by the abusive society, everyone is hesitant to help but some people would really make you believe that there is kindness in everyone. That helping someone you don’t really know is still possible. I am really grateful to that stranger. Thank you!
What random act of kindness did you experience before? Share. Share.
