With some effort I reached level 5. Finally. Then I saw the crazy amount of points you need to get to guru level. 20K! And I just have a merger 1031 points. Masters, how did you manage to reach that level.
They wanted to be sure that only the biggest losers reach the level of guru, so to be one you must spend 1/2 your life going over questions like "what do you think of Turkey?" and "without any details- do you think he likes me? " until nauseous. As you can see I have almost reached total loser myself- wait only 10,000 more hours to go.
It's easy peasy if you have no life and dedicate all your time to being on G@G. I reached Guru in a little less than 3 months and a Master in like 8 months after joining I think. On my previous account that is.
Yes, it will take some effort. It depends as to how much time you can spend on GAG, how many opinions you post here, how many questions you can ask. It also depends on how many MHO's you get for your opinions.
We used to get 3 exp for answering a question (now it's one I think), and 2 just for logging in. I got to guru in a few years though. Guru used to be 10,000 two years ago. When they changed it to 20,000 I went back to level 9.
It can take awhile but I've seen people make guru in a few months. A lot of people have done that actually. Easy of gaining points has changed though. I think it's a little harder to get points overall now maybe.
