100% agree with Gorath on this.

When I started playing WoW when it first came out for about a year I didn't play anything else, the combination of the good game-play and good friends I played with in my guild was very addictive .

Since then I've been in and out of WoW and other MMO's and always balance my gaming time with single player games. Even though I just re-subbed to WoW I'm also playing other games right now like- Nehrim, all the GOG.com classic games I missed the first time around like Icewind Dale 2 which I'm playing right this moment.

So yeah it can be a gaming balancing act with any MMO but it can be done with a little self control lol. Plus I end up enjoying both types of games more this way, not getting burnt out on either.

I honestly don't think this will be a problem for me. When I first started playing Guild Wars I played for eight hour stretches but after a week or so I went back to playing Halo 2 with my friends like normal all the while maintaining my character in GW.

Quite possibly they have closed the required ports in the firewall at your work. I can't connect to any of that stuff at my work, not without some sort of proxy tunnel.

Boy, that's no lie. My poison of choice is DDO, but you're 100% correct about all other games getting squeezed out.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
