Olympians (lv60 in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics)

Disclaimer for new members:

The max speed possible on WK is 6 days and 20 hours per level (apart from the first 2, and some of the 40s). At this point, new members below level 10 would have to consistently level up at near-max speed without taking any breaks in order to make it to 60 in time for the end of the paralympics.

Members below level 10 should check out these threads:

  • Luminaries - my other “race” thread - the goal is May 2021 (the next total lunar eclipse!)
  • Race to 60! December 2020 JLPT - our sister thread made by FennelFox - the goal is Dec 2020 (the 2020 winter JLPT!)



Goal

let’s get that cake in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!

This thread is to motivate ourselves and each other to reach level 60 by the end of the 2020 Summer Olympics!


Deadline: September 6, 2020

The Olympics will go from July 24 - Aug 9, and the Paralympics from Aug 25 to Sept 6.

So the deadline is: September 6th, 2020 (days left)

If you’re looking for a later deadline, try our sister group, the Race to 60! December 2020 JLPT thread!

Teams

By popular demand, this thread now has teams!
Do they mean anything? Not sure yet. Will they in the future? Probably not. Are they fun? Absolutely.

These teams are based on the five Japanese elements (五大). It’s time to choose your allegiance. (Fun fact: you’ll learn all of these kanji within the first 10 levels!)

  • 水 (Water)
  • 地 (Earth)
  • 空 (Aether/Void)
  • 風 (Wind)
  • 火 (Fire)

頑張ろう!

We have a home now ! :heart_eyes:

Someity is way cuter than Miraitowa though :thinking:

Edit: Just realized i have a solid excuse to finally waste my money on those Olympics Plush Mascots!
I’ll be like 10 times more efficient studying, promise :pleading_face:

It can be a level 60 reward! (on top of the cake, of course)

Please count me in. I’m only at level 3 but any motivation is welcome!
Even if I get half way i’ll be in a much better position.

I’m joining the game ! I’m really far from all of you, but I’m super motivated !

You know I can’t share my sources, you’d probably send your penguin yakuza after them :cold_sweat:

I hate it when people bring up reasonable arguments to stop me from spending money.
One more reason to make it to 60. I’ll rescue you from that stuffy warehouse ソメイティ :sob:

Hey, looks like we have a place to hang out now!
Not too interested in the Olympics either but having a deadline will surely help my procrastinating ass to study hard.

also:

If you buy them, I’ll buy them too
We’ll be together down the useless merchandises rabbit hole :sunglasses:

Here here! Me too. Even if on wkstats i get there in 2021 or something like that but hey, I won’t let an app tell me what to do. Ha!

I can only turn my own posts into a wiki. So for this you need help from a mod.

Penguin-Sempai convinced me to save my money for more relevant stuff like Netflix, we’ll have to earn those plushies first ! :c

We’ll just have to make sure she doesn’t find out :shushing_face:

If we succeed, we should get some sort of Olympic Forum title :slight_smile:
