    Angry Do you Play more WoW than you Live Life?

    I admit, I'm guilty! I spend more time playing WoW than I actually live! I've put off my family! My job!

    Make me feel good to know that I'm not the only one!

    I'm not thinking this is something you need validation for.. You need to reevaluate your priorities...

    You're not the only one. INB4 a massive flood of people say they don't and blatantly lie about it.

    That massive flood of people just realize what is more important.. Deep down you know it's wrong, which is why you try to comfort yourself by saying others are lying about it...

    I did when I was younger, destroyed my whole life getting Grand Marshal, nowadays not so much. I still play a lot, but my priorities are different.

    I can say No now but not a year or so ago. So I won't put the second option...wait no I will. You are definitely an addict if you're doing it and so was I. Hell, technically I still am since I replaced my WoW playing with mmo-champion surfing.

    I used to, after 7 years I'm playing alot less, I'm feeling like I know too much about this game, the feeling of a new world to explore is long gone.

    Absolutely not, it's a GAME and it has it's place.

    Something a lot of people on here have yet to figure out..

    Not much else to do between applying to jobs and going on interviews.

    Nope. Even on the release-day of an expansion I first do a full workday and even postpone playing the game if I have other plans for the evening.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    Why would you be proud of spending more time working than doing stuff you enjoy?
    Working doesn't count as "living" if we go at it that way.

    Yes and no. I work for a military company and when we have a contract I have to spend a long time abroad but when we don't I get to stay home and do nothing most of the time - so yeah during that time I do tend to play for a long time.

    Well, I know how to set my priorities. I spend enough time on important things like my studies to come forward in life.
    The rest of my time goes into WoW.

    So, in short: the internet.

    No I don't, but I probably did for a while in vanilla.

    Now I am probably on 3-10 hours pr. week.

    Edit: Make that 0-10 hours. I actually do have weeks where I don't log on at all.

    If you would have asked me that question a year ago the answer would have been yes, but thankfully I got out of the matrix.
