I was bored (see reason 3), so i decided to make a quick list.

You know you're addicted to GW when:

1. You were up for 60 hours straight during the WBEs. (Yes, one of my friends ACTUALLY did this)
2. Your room was littered with remanents of instant food and soda.
3. You have 30+ other games installed on your computer and you have more fun with the Character Calculator
4. You stare at the loading screen for fun.
5. You repeatedly try to login in the vain hope that they'll open up the beta 3 weeks early
6. You're checking 10 GW sites more than 30 times a day
7. You're up for trying some wacky new cryogenic freezing being promoted by a Dr. Hobo in hopes that you can essentially skip the next 3 weeks.
8. You're hiring a crack team of hackers to decode the .dat file in hopes of finding the ability to create a private server until the Event opens up again.
9. You hear ANYONE mention GW and you're hounding them enough to border sexual harassment
10. You don't realize its only (at time of posting) 11 days until Christmas.

Add more! I'm guilty for 2, 3, 10. Some of our guild's programmers did find some server files in the .dat file oO.

Screw the .dat files, how the client encodes the data it saves in unimportant. If you're going to implement a private server, you just need a packet sniffer to log all your traffic while you play, so you can implement the protocol the server uses to communicate with the client.

Not that I would encourage anyone to do such a thing... :lol: Actually, when the server can send the client new code at a moment's notice, this would be like trying to build a house on quicksand over a sinkhole on a fault line during typhoon season.

12) At the end of the BWE, when you are screamingly tired, sugared up from snack food and Jolt, and you look at your on screen character, and think that a date with her would be an interesting thing.....


... then waking up from where you've fallen asleep in your chair 2 seconds earlier, while thinking about dating your character....


.... and then realizing that you're having romantic thoughts about a non-living entity and decide that the bed is looking VERY welcomi- -_-zzzzzzz

i think i did that once with Samurai Warriors... i think im impartial to asian/oriental/chinese/korean/japanese women though...

13) You know your addicted to GW when: you go to your local EB and pre-order GW but they mistakenly put the deluxe edition that you don't have the money for and you keep walking out of the store transfixed on the words "Guild Wars" printed on the reciept...

14). A full week after the end of the beta weekend, you are having dreams where people are calling you by your character's name, and you respond. (Happened last night, and didn't really notice until later what was going on).

A few of my friends refer to me as Fallen IRL... Its kinda odd, but I answer to it, heh.

16) after violating #1 rather than going to sleep you stay up for another 6 hours after the BWE is over talking to friends on IRC about Guild Wars,

15) When you wander around the Strategy section of the forum 24/7 writing down other people's character builds on sticky notes. Then copying+pasting all the skills and descriptions for your primary and secondary profession and prints out, and tries to memorize all of them. (I'm such a loser, forgive me.)

I calculated that there's ~1555200 seconds left until friday the 18th. Oh and I only stayed up for 30 hours in a row last beta event. Whew, luckily for me, I'm not addicted.. or am I?
