We do have this other thread with the same concept, but a later deadline. In that one, there’s two leaderboards; one for levels and one for burns. Please check it out. You’ll find @Naphthalene and @Pep95 over there as well ^^
I’ve felt inches from burnout for weeks now, but have thankfully largely had the time for my daily lesson and review sessions, even if I haven’t always felt like I’ve had the motivation. I’m not sure what might happen if I ever felt like I don’t have the time, either. I have to admit hoping that Hell will somehow magically be past some kind of wall.
If it’s any consolation, at least some of the middle Death levels are smaller!
You guys will always be Olympians to me, even if you end up having to slow down!!
Thank you @madtapa, I’ll have a read of this… I think I need it.
For weeks now, I’ve been ready to give it in… It’s been challenging to move forward. With all the burns coming around, my review pile gets VERY big, very fast… It’s made it a challenge to regularly review new material, which means my retention isnt as good… which of course is frustrating and demotivating.
Good on you! That’s ace. I’ve found that I’ve been letting things slide a little, purely because of the amount of reviews coming through. I havent done my lessons yet. I have 98 waiting. If I do them, I fear what will come next! Lol.
This does give me some hope!
At this rate I don’t think I’m gonna make it.
Not meaning to be negative… Even saying it out loud warrants a spoiler blur
I feel pretty lucky to have enough free time to do my reviews several times a day. I think that’s the only reason I didn’t get completely suplexed by death like a lot of users here.
…still, I’m a bit worried about the infamous fast levels once you reach 50+. 8 days levels are already pretty tight, so I don’t know how someone is expected to do them in 4 days. The number of guru kanjis must be pretty overwhelming, to say the least. @Pep95, I require your wisdom. How’d you do it?
The way I did it was by first horrifically crashing after doing them in 3.5 days. I took a 4 week break after reaching level 51. So point number 1 don’t do that.
In the end I settled on creating my own 7 day levels. When I reached a new level, I did all previous level’s vocab and current level’s radicals. Once I guru’d those, I did all kanji, just the kanji. Those are my weakness anyway, so it was actually pretty good for me to do those separately. Because you already guru’d your radicals, all kanji should be available.
It might seem a bit disproportionate, but for me it takes about as much time to do around 100 vocab vs about 35 kanji.
Also small protip and such, since these are fast levels, you can go on medium speed by doing the kanji levels in your 2 day srs break. So once you’ve upped most of the vocab and radicals to Apprentice 4, get on that kanji train within 13 hours. The intervals of 4,8 and 23 hours will accumulate to a day and 11 hours, so that fits just fine, without leading to very big daily review piles. This alternative will lead to level-up in about 5 days. But try the 7 day one first.
Quite a lot of insightful informations here. Thanks for the write up!
I usually do all of my lessons as soon as they’re available but I might need to pace myself once I reach the fast levels. Though we’re obviously not there yet, I’m not even halfway done.
On that subject, anybody got some funny level 30 gifs to share? I need to prepare myself for an hilarious post once I reach that level, and I’m drawing a blank.
