Although these 20 and 30-year-olds had hours to spare as children and had no responsibilities, they soon had obligations that went beyond schoolwork.
"People have jobs they have families to consider," said Stefan Kempe, another popular producer of content for RuneScape which has nearly 200,000 subscribers and goes by the username SoupRS in an interview. "It's a limiting factor to the amount of time they can spend playing everyday."
The game isn't easy. To increase the agility of a character from one to 99, the most advanced level, it will take more than a weeks of constant play according to a detailed guide that was released by the creator. With more than their typical allowances as teenagers, players like Mobley, who works in an information center, decided to bypass the grind of leveling up their characters in exchange for rare objects, and the boring initial stages to the game.
Others, like Corne 21, a 21-year-old software developer located in Arnhem, Netherlands, who refused to disclose his last name, placed bets on gold, and in turn, real currency in duels with players. "I enjoy money. No matter where it is in real life or old school rs gold in RuneScape and other games, money is great to have" the player said during a phone conversation.
