When do you know, that you spend too much time on coa?



  • My friend who used to play here was high and his facebook post was out Hiking with Hunter Nefzen (My old malarite character)



  • Just today, while driving another CoA player home, a pop song came on my favorite rock station in the van. I told my friend, "Man, if they switched the music format on that station, I'm gonna change my quickslots…" intending to say radio presets.



  • …when you have a dream that a giant tornado picks up and eventually drops your house, killing most of your pets.

    Then later, in the same dream, you are reading the forums and the Hart have claimed responsibility for the deaths because they were transporting the Weather Orb and dropped it causing it to shatter.



  • When you notice that "Never" and "Night" in the title of the game really meant "you will not sleep anymore after playing this game".

    So true!

    How I know I've played too long: when you find that in that coa-induced sleep-deprived state, you start hallucinating inventory windows and a quickslot bar in real life. This seriously happened to me. I was trying to get my toddler dressed, and in my sleep deprived state I open up my hallucinated inventory box, start sifting through it, and then said "I don't have anything in his size in my inventory."
    I had a witness. He didn't see the inventory box, obviously. Don't know why, it was right next to him! >.>
    Luckily I didn't have to leave the house until I had caught up on sleep. Wouldn't want to try to navigate a car through the Hullack…

    Yeah, I've cut back on my playing time a bit since then.



  • When you get anywhere near your computer and you could swear you hear the log-in screen music playing.



  • Ha, the Lure of the Siren… 🙂 I get this sometimes, (which is extra scary as I hardly ever even have sound on..)



  • when you're acctully sad if a character dies



  • I design and sell kitchens for a living. Today I was writing up an order for a customer named Calvin Smithson. I cought myself several times trying to write or type his name as Micha. I thought to myself, 'alright, Smithson on April Fools day, ha ha'… Then my next customer? Robert Watts. :shock:

    Le epic.

    I actually don't ever have anything like this happen to me.

    And I play more hours than most people. However, I do hallucinate that I actually have school work and a real life to get back to. Weird that. >.>



  • last night we're leaving the restaurant, and hubby goes first, then the three kids, then me at the end.. and I think… "Damn! I got rear guard, again!" Poor Deidre...

    It's sir Micha Smithson now! haha That's epic though.

    When I dream of when Micha was level 8 for… 20 minutes



  • I doodle stats and level progressions on my class notes.



  • @Paradox:

    When you read through this topic.



  • +1



  • +1 above



  • What do you mean, too much time?



  • Been catching myself at work almost referring to customers as "Characters"… but then many of my customers are characters...



  • @Neolithic:

    This. Although this just means too much time in NWN because I did it for all my old servers as well.



  • When you have dreams about accidentally casting fireball instead of haste on your party's warriors.

    Or about being left and locked outside in the darkness in the south district.

    Or, my favorite so far, the dream about having the whole population of the server gather in east district, and then argue with all the DM's whether "Tinker, tailor, soldier, spy" was a good film :shock: .
