Continuing the discussion from Boomers thread ~Relive old memories~:
That thread got me thinking,
What would qualify a player as a Boomer in Rotmg terms? Players who were around when the game hit its “peaks” as the Kabam era began? WIth unsoulbound UTs available, and then pets came along to supercharge our abilities and survivability.
Would the other generations translate into Rotmg terms?
There’s definitely something generational-feeling about players who have only ever known the grind of play during the soulbound times and pets have been ever-present (are these our Millennials/Gen Y?).
And those who have only experienced Rotmg alongside Discord for organised raids, you only vaguely remember when O2 didn’t invite you to the dance and throw exploding suns, that feels like another new generation (Gen Z?).
Wait does that mean I’m saying the Wild Shadow era players who knew the old WS forums were the “Greatest Generation” . Self-centred much.
Gen X: if you survived through the desolate years of Kabam c.2014-2016. Maybe you were active on the Kabam forum. You might remember Swatsec from your first days but you didn’t lose much.
The Silent Generation (between Greatest Generation and Boomers), dunno, maybe the comparison is falling down now…
The Lost Generation, the oldest named generation on Wikipedia = I guess these guys were around only for the earliest days of Realm in 2010, when Oryx materialised in the Realm after enough monsters were killed, then ragequit when gravelooting stopped being a thing.
And Generation Alpha (Gen α) is going to be the next thing… So this would equate to future players who will know nothing but Unity and Oryx3.
Yeah okay I had a few days to think about this while the forum was down.
So you are a true Rotmg Boomer if you keep harping on about the “old days” when you could trade 8 Life for a Bulwark or Pyra, and when Tomb/Shatters were the endgame.
How does that fit? Have I insulted you or your mother by putting you in the wrong Rotmg generation?
