Greatplayer syndrome


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Greatplayer syndrome

Since getting greatplayer status, I seem to have had a 35-game losing streak. I think I might be suffering from greatplayer syndrome, where you think you're invincible. Has anyone else had this, or is it just me?

Edit: looking at ololoev's definitions below, it looks like the challenge I was setting myself combined nature's ally 3 and Lord of Darkness 3 in the same game, which probably didn't help..

Something tells me I know what duvessa would say here...

Good job on getting greatplayer! I'm not, so I can't comment. Are you playing differently now? Harder combos?

It's time to define achievement tiers!
I don't want to mention low-level achievements like okayplayers, greatlairers, so from the easiest to the hardest:
- !greatplayer/!greaterplayer/!polytheist
- !decentplayer
- Nature's ally III / Avarice III banner
- MuCK^Xom 15-rune win
- Vow of courage III banner
- Ruthless Efficiency III / Lord of darkness III banner
- !dupz / !duhz
- MuMo challenge

Re: Greatplayer syndrome

I want to point out that there are many things in life which cannot be ordered in a list. A classical example is rock, paper, scissors. It certainly is true that some items are strictly harder than others. I wonder if "harder than" is transitive for a single player.

Re: Greatplayer syndrome

Greatorbrunner is getting 3 runes, then orb, then 12 more? Then it is just where the orbruntomb is.

The list that I made is just for fun, like god tier list is.

4Hooves you can type ??decentplayer or ??dupz in irc for explanations. Knowing how to irc things is a good skill.

Wow, I've got Vow of courage III banner in last tournament during my first 15 rune win, didn't even realise it is so high up there with the achievements(it is the only one I have, and I think I would never attempt some bellow)
