i got 32k tokens this week just by playing as i always have


So what I'm hearing is you played 64 hours within the span of 6 days. Guy, that's not good for you.


it really depends what you are doing

personally, i afk fish while i read books, do housework, workout, chat on chat sites, watch netflix, sit on the bus, and sometimes i play more interactively

if i was staring at the screen the whole time u might have a point


Yet multitasking isn't great for mental health, and is actually associated with symptoms of depression and social anxiety [Becker et al, 2013]. I stopped AFKing RS during other activities, and found I can concentrate much better on what I'm doing and find more enjoyment in it as well. RS would just be a distraction and doesn't add anything good. Having to to AFK an event that's supposed to raise awareness for mental health is just extremely contradictory.

If it is "an ongoing issue", why is the discussion in RGU?


Because it is ongoing. As in, it happened recently. Back on topic please.


Did your OP say anything about "on-going" or MTX or concurrent players? Your thread title even explicit said this thread is about the (Mental Healthness)
EVENT
.

Here we are,
yet again
. This time in "support" of mental health.

So let's do the math.
To complete the event, you need to gather a total of 10k tokens within 6 days.
This is better than the last 'event'
, but only marginally.


So yes. It did. Now
back on topic.

Their event should be about how to stop being addicted to games. I'd happily participate.


Addiction is not the only form of mental illness. For example, if you answered the daily questions when this event was running, you should know lack of self-confidence is also a form of mental illness, and half of the youth reported "poor mental health" but nothing is said that all of them played video games.

So this event was already very educational and informative.

Support. I got sick & missed playing a few days. When I could play again, there were only 2 days left in the event, which made finishing it pretty much impossible. These "grindfest" events are starting to look like cheap, dirty ploys to entice players to spend extra real money. I pay my membership every month, and have for years, and that should be enough. For a mental health event, trying to make players feel inadequate for not spending extra money isn't highly conducive to promoting mental health.
