Game Mechanics: Urgent Optimism

Image result for Maple Story Zakum solo


Urgent Optimism is a mechanic where you level up or gear up your character as soon as you can before you go and defeat a specific boss or before you complete a difficult task in a game alone. This mechanic is the most common mechanic in online games, especially the RPG games.

The image above shows a game called Maple Story where 1 single character is fighting with a high levelled boss without any difficulty because it is fully geared up.

If I were to create an RPG game I would allow this mechanic to work but it would be entirely up to the player to keep on ‘grinding’ in order to level up.
