I haven't even recieved my copy of the game yet (ordered it a week ago) and I'm already showing signs of addiction...
How the h**l am I going to get anything else done once I get it? :confused:

Actually, you'll find that if you give up things like sleeping, bathing and changing clothes, the conflicts with friends, family and job will eventually take care of themselves, leaving you with plenty of time to play EU. :)

...and don't go and try and buck for that promotion (assuming you already have a job). All that time that you will spend at this forum , and not being productive (take me for example..I could be doing some really time sensitive stuff right now for our customers,but hey they can wait I'm posting dammit! :D) will make you wonder if they are gonna catch you , and fire your ass.


.....Gotta Go.....

After a while

you will believe EU is reality and your job/friends/life are just a computer game that you can put off playing until you have lived just one more year of EU.

Seriously!

This game is waaay addictive. I Play at a crawl pace of 2 minutes = 1 month. Because I just want it to last as long as I can.

And I havent really gotten into guts up the game yet, only doing my first GC now as Portugal.(well second, I restarted as Portugal when I got into serious debt by 1510, three unpaid loans. 10 or so ducats coming in each year, ugh)

Seriously though, to the developers, one hell of a job guys.

you'll surprise yourself thinking that this co-worker could become an ally and this other one a vassal.

you'll walk in the street and approach a east indian person with words such has: The Mughal empire will be mine! and you'll scorn any person from the netherlands because of their hign nationalism.

If you are not careful, you'll soon find yourself in a nice white room with padded walls!

What the ??? How did I arrive in this room? Why am I wearing a white gown? Who are those strange men with a seringe full of........

And suddenly you developped an Austrian nationalism even though you don't have anything to do with Austria. Heck, you've never even been there!:cool:

I think Xanadu is my doppelgänger. I was startled to read his comments because they are exactly what runs around in my own head-thing. :)

My trick to avoid addiction detection is this: when a co-worker or boss doesn't find me in my office they assume I'm in the lab. Those in the lab assume I'm in my office. Those who check both places assume I'm in the john. In reality I can be somewhere else reading this forum and maybe even nip in a quick session of EU. :D

Hail Keith Rogers,

We should be in an X-File somewhere :D.


Although I can't play EU on my work pc (mainly because it really sucks..I think it would cry if I loaded EU on it) I don't think I really want to. I mean if I did I think I would get in some serious trouble..no kidding because every freakin' moment that I would have I would be playing EU. I really don't want to jeopardise anything..I kinda have grown rather attached to my paycheck.

I must say I have never be so involved in a game where I think my job would be in jeopardy......Thanks Johan

Hell, last night I even forgot all about dinner I was so busy expanding and defending my Turkish empire. Luckily, I did remember to feed our horse - my wife doesn't care that I might starve but when it comes to her favorite critter it's an entirely different story :(

(I never did end up eating cause I jumped right back into the game after I got back from the stables!)

Great game :)

"I'll wait until January 1st next year, then save and go to sleep... What the heck, it's already February! Well, I'll wait until January 1st next year, then save and go to sleep..."

"Shops close soon, I better get something for the weekend... Damn! Well, the pizza taxis run until morning... Damn! Well, I think I've got some macaroni, and there that piece of cheese that stopped moving last week..."

Ok, I do go to work, granted. But guess where I read these posts?

And then you realize that women, work, school, all that stuff was just a figment of your imagination used to lure you away from the one true path of EU!:)

The other day I tried to vassalize a co-worker but it did'nt work out. Now our relations are at -200. :)

On Saturday, I'm thinking about political annexation of one girl. I've been preparing the political groundwork, giving stately gifts of 250 ducats over time. Our relations are now at +90. There is one catch: Can you politically annex someone without making them a vassal first? (women don't like to be vassals I hear) :D
 
And think of all the good evangelical work you can do in spreading the word about the game. Get those people that you used to know as friends involved in the game and, hey presto, you have an ally and relations are up (+20). If they don't join the gaming community then it goes down (-15)

I'm in serious trouble though at work. Moving office tomorrow and I'll be without the computer to send messages for most of the day. Better just stay at home, or how about a 16hr session of EU with the odd break to put kettle on.

Food. Who needs it. Just make sure you get at least one good meal every week.

Sleep, unfortunately is just one of those nasty habits that I can't seem to break. Maybe I should smoke a lot more.
