:( Lately i've been playing wayyyy to much.... i've prioritized wrong and put runescape ahead of everything (friends, family, studies). Well I've determined to change. :notalk:



Anyone else having similar problems? :roll:

[bleep] that I work from 4am to 3pm and then football from 5pm to 8 pm I play because it makes me go to sleep unless I still have the energy to hang out with my freinds.

i used to, but ever since i got banned I've been fine, I'm actually glad because i was wasting so much time to like level and not have any fun. just went on my skill pure, my only unbanned account and met a nice skiller. Kind of makes me miss rs. Not much though

I did for a while, but lately i barely even get an hours play a day.

P2P offers more and better ways of making money than f2p. That's one of the cons you just have to play with if you don't feel like having 1 bigmac meal less per month.

I started playing runescape 3 years ago



Than i started guild wars and did 1 year,and now i came back to runescape



From what I have noticed,runescape is very addictive game because you can always sacrifice your time on training skills and becoming better in your skills what opens you new options in game,but basicly there is about same "amount of fun"(if i can say so) in game invented for all lvls starting from lowest to highest



When I stated i was basicly addict because i felt complex...i was really a newb



Than when i played it constantly for some time i stoped beeing that addictive,and I could personally play less,i had more self controll



Than after i went guild wars,i realised it was somthing diffrent,but it was same,in first few days/months i played more,than a bit less maybe



However now im back to runescape,I felt eveything was ruined because i missed alot of news,but than i started tracking forums and news archive and i read most of it,i put all my questions on forums,and somehow i started remembering all the stuff i used to know before





Now its been 3 weeks since im back,and I can tell there is still stuff I cant clearly remember

When i got back i played with a large breaks...only 5 hours a day of runescape or somthing like that (that was not normal since i play 8 a day at least lol)



Now its summer holiday and i do this kind of torture to myself because I know that next school year is one that matters the most (for my school) and maybe i wont be able to play it ever in my life as much as I can in next couple of days,lets say 3 weeks



I still think that im wrong about this. I just lack of self controll,2 weeks ago i could sleep 6 hours,do sports 4 hours and play runescape for time i have left, but as days have passes I totally lost self control...thats just how i work...holiday is near end and i really want to use it for sutch game



Maybe im stupid



Edit: Personally i regreet because runescape is the last thing on internet worth my time

Its like you develop a different part of you that is determined to only play runescape, just shut that part of you up.

I didn't put it in front of anything, but i didn't really have much to do anyways. I just quit so I had to force myself to fill the time with more productive things. So I guess in a way in controlled my life but not completely.

With rl friends on holiday, i aint got much else to do but i work most nights and try to keep myself active. I did go through a phase of staying up late to complete goals i had set myself which had a knock-on effect with my schoolwork, got that sorted out and i can control my playing now.



And if im being honest,with not staying up late/playing for hours on end, i seem to acheive my goals more efficiently... :-k

Seems like another thread of "how social are you" :roll:



Anyway, school controls my life, not rs. 11 hours of school daily on weekdays.
Strangely with WotLK so near, I wished I could delay it a bit to push through that last TBC content in MH/BT :'(.

I admit, th first month I played RS I was totally hooked on it.

Fortunately, I became aware before it was too late and I am no longer addicted to it.

I only play a couple of hours a day on the weekends during tht school year, and I play it during the summer whenever I have some downtime to kill.

Pretty much what Dragon said.

This guy knows what he is talking about. I have not played in a while and I just can't bear even thinking about it, Runescape seems like the most boring game in the world to me now. However I am sure that soon I will be sucked back into it #-o
