Ragnarok Clicker • Get 200 adventurer upgrades

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know what you’re thinking. ‘Another clicker.’ Well bad luck, Donald Duck, I. Bloody. Love. Them. I’m still not sure what Ragnarok is … I know it’s the title of a Thor film, but that’s about it. I also don’t really care that much – for me, Ragnarok Clicker is more about the cute aesthetic rather than any great story or literary connection. I like the characters. I like upgrading my characters and I like the sweet, sweet satisfaction of killing bad guys by – essentially – doing nothing but building up an army of soldiers that do the work for me. There’s a reason that clickers are so good … and it’s because it scratches that itch of accomplishment while never actually – and I suppose it’s a crude analogy – treating the infection that is causing the rash in the first place. It’s deliberately endless, and that requires some willpower to be able to bail from the game when you’ve had enough of it.

Of course, that’s great in theory. Thanks to Steam Cloud Saves, I’ve been able to pick up on the likes of Clicker Heroes a year or two after first playing and suck down a big pile of idle gold goodness.

Today was as much about progress than anything else. I did a bit of a shop around the Ragnarok achievements before launching the game, and while I’m still a bit bitter about transcending a level or two before the next achievement, I’m also making good progress against a range of other achievements – so I’m willing to just keep checking in and clocking-up upgrades and gold as needed, and earning the achievements when I do. Today was my 200th character upgrade, which – again, if I hadn’t transcended – would probably have come along eventually through progress, but letting bygones be bygones lets me earn this achievement today and tick it off my list of things to do!

Tonight is a free-er night, so I’m going to make one final push for progress in Sea of Thieves and then (most likely) head back to something Tom Clancy (either The Division or Ghost Recon).
