Is VU overly addictive?
21:32:31 Dec 31st 07 - Mr. Vengence:

I have been taking a lot more time out to play VU recently. Is it getting too addcitive? Does it waste time that could be used better? I mean, yes it is a cool game, but can you get too wound up about it? opinions on this subject please.

22:03:16 Dec 31st 07 - Mr. Killstone The Exploiter:

well it depends on the eprson really

if i wasnt a person that was concerned on my education then yes it would be a problem for me.

but i relize that having an education is important and since the game is addictive i end up taking a while to finish all my things for school. If i didnt think school was important, then i would be getting really bad grades right now instead of mostly As

22:08:38 Dec 31st 07 - Sir Iwasfrozen VI:

didn't you read the boxes at sign up ?

22:10:10 Dec 31st 07 - Mr. Vengence:

This is what I am concerned about in MY gaming. I have been getting good grades and so on, but VU is very addictive and I am spending more and more time on it rather than doing oyther things. Im not just talking  about school, im ok with that, I mean like doing stuff like getting exercise, doing other things rather than sitting in front of a pc screen. It can affect social life aswel, might start staying home on the pc instead of being out seeing other people/ this may not be a problem for most as they see people @ school but i homeschool so it is important i get out and see people.


@ iwasfrozen: yes, I did read them, but I am talking about after you have played for awhile and you are getting better and more involved with the VU community in general

22:27:55 Dec 31st 07 - Lord Seloc:

Yes it too addictive.....definatly.....

22:40:51 Dec 31st 07 - Mr. Soc:

i have lost all meaning of the thing known as life

23:07:06 Dec 31st 07 - Mr. Killstone The Exploiter:

im homeschooled too vengence and all my friends live far away so when i can i get out and sociolize and id prefer to do that than VU. VU is a game and RL should come first if you do it in your time (or while your doing school as long as school gets done =P) then you are fine but if its taking over your life then there is something wrong id say

and waht do the boxes say i signed up a while ago and forgot them =P

01:40:16 Jan 1st 08 - Mr. Hanky Panky:

Vengance i agree with you on this

vu can ruin lives if you get overly addicted

from playing vu
i no longer have a social life

i have to take fundings for my car to buy a laptop

and my family despise me, i have 3 brothers all out there working or at school   and a sister and i am the only one that sits at the computer all day 24/7 looking at a green screen

luckily i took 2 eras breack during gcse's and managed to get 3 passes out of around 11 which is bare minimum to be accepted

i came back to eras ago not planning to make a kd or even stay

is there any help for addicted gamers ? or does it just get worse ? i dont want to ruin my life no more

13:45:48 Jan 1st 08 - Mr. Vengence:

Hanky Panky, the only real way to get over it is to not play anymore, or set a single hour each day in which you are on the pc, or spread an hour over the day. If you have trouble sticking to it i believe it is possible to cut off the internet at a set time. you could get sum1 to do this for you, so it is cut off most of the tme. dont do it yourself cause u would know the password.

17:39:43 Jan 1st 08 - Mr. Vengence:

Or there is one other thing. if you leave your kingdom and dont join another, then you will keep dying and you will get sick of the game and not wanty to play it anymore

20:02:45 Jan 1st 08 - Sir Iwasfrozen VI:

lol, was that post serious ? :P

I hope not, but if so just don't play any more, this is a game, just remember that.

22:37:43 Jan 1st 08 - Mr. Gilth:

I get more then enough exercise with Epyon every day. So actually, VU made me fitter..

01:18:58 Jan 2nd 08 - Sir Dead Oralive:

woooo ive been on computer for 10hrs striaght now :) nothin to do to cold to go outside and play dont want to turn into a Icecicle(is that spelled right)

13:08:34 Jan 2nd 08 - Mr. Vengence:

I think you are addicted...and Gilth, you are sick. lol.........

I used to get more exercise than I do now, cos im on the pc more. I am cutting down on the amount of time I spend on VU tho...not going really inactive tho, enemies still

22:21:10 Jan 2nd 08 - Mr. Hanky Panky:

it took me about an hour to write that post editing it and everything :S one point i put my predicted grades down and what i got but edited  :P

i cant pull myself to leave i tried leaving i went kdless for 3 eras but found it more fun than being in a kd so made trio with just 3 players for fun and ended with 25 :S ( the third kdless era i made trio)

i have sat at my computer from 11 to now and will be here til probs 2 am :S

11:35:59 Jan 3rd 08 - Mr. Vengence:

you have serious issues mate. see a psychartist? that may help

11:42:07 Jan 3rd 08 - Mr. Random:

im only on VU when i have nuthin else to do,

it is addictive but when the surf is a perfect 6 foot then VU is NOTHING.

the solution: live in australia and surf =)

16:41:45 Jan 3rd 08 - Sir Iwasfrozen VI:

how about not paying your phone bills mate ?

the company will soon cut you off if you can't do it yourself. :P

21:16:39 Jan 3rd 08 - Mr. Vengence:

Why is that picure in a different language?

05:54:34 Jan 6th 08 - Mr. Ambrosias Arilyonis:

I agrea with everyone, VU is very addictive! I, Paracelzus, quite for a year or so, it was getting ahold of my life, I was getting horible grades and spending all the time a had trying to play VU. I simply quite one end of a era, I felt great that I could simply quite and do better things. I left the account sitting there intill today, well, I think it must have been deleated or somthing, becuase i can't get back on it... So yeah, if somthing is affecting your grades, or you whole life style, you need to change somthing.

05:05:03 Jan 8th 08 - Mr. Killstone The Exploiter:

well its not affecting my grades its not affecting my sociol life (i talk on AIM like 7-8 hours a day if i have people to talk to) but i do sit here all day basically eitehr doing school on AI*beep* VU or doing otehr random stuff on the com and my back hurts by the end of the day (but it makes bed more comfortable) would you guys think thats addicted to the game? like i know im addicted but is it voerly addicted? should i take a break and try and actually forgive me? which i would LOVE to do cause im bored enarly all day!

cause i dont want to be ruining my life because i am addicted to this and the computer in general
