So the WHO officially recognises video game addiction as a sickness. Its very important for some people to realize how long they spend playing video games. No offense but when I mistly see some pvpers have thousands of matches played in ranked it makes me wonder how much time they spend on the game.

Mainly when it comes to wintrading it takes a lot of work and time, yet these players seem to rob themselves of their RL in order to gain imaginery titles and rewards, rather then spend RL doing something real.

The WHO is a joke. I am just waiting for them to say you need a pill to beat gaming addiction.

If I recall correctly, you have (or had at some point) 100% achievements. How many hours did it take you?

I wouldn't limit game addiction to PvP.
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free 10 x inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

Don't give them any ideas.


Honestly it doesn't take medical professionals to realize that having a healthy balance in life between various activities (including recreation) is a good idea, and no amount of recognition by medical professionals is going to make people make better choices.

Use my referral link for free goodies.

We need the achievements for pvp, which takes time to get such as 50k kills, 1000 warzone matches etc

I don't have a *lot* of time for the more recent meanderings of the WHO, but the organisation that ran the successful global campaign to rid the world of variola major and variola minor (smallpox to you, Chuckles) deserves *some* respect. What they did there left the world a better place.
