Well, I'm living with my cousin's place for over 3 1/2 months now. Right he's up right now still playing his WoW (nearly 15 hrs) and I went to bed at around 11pm last night. He's 29 years old and has a good paying job but i don't know if he still has this job thus WoW has really been kicking in for him. Here's his signs that I have noticed about the past 3 weeks:

Signs

- Turned off his cell phone for the past 3 weeks (I believe his company pays his cell phone bill)

- Smoking about almost twice as usual

- He hasn't shaved in about 1 1/2 weeks.

- He is been on his "vacation" for 3 weeks now counting today (monday) from his job.

- The day before he started his "vacation", he told me works sucks and that I should stay in school for long as I can before going out into the real world.

- He doesn't do any housework really (doesn't do dishes, put trash on the counters and not in the garbage, doesn't take out trash when the bag is full or even when the bag is front of the study where he plays WoW, don't put away dishes, a fuckload of clothes in his room laying everywhere). He did vacuum the living floor a few days ago...

- He doesn't go to bed until late at night due to playing WoW (like he is right now (so probably he stills up til around 2 or 3) , and usually after I go to bed (after 1 a.m)

- Uses the house phone a lot more than ever (he never uses it) to get calls from his girlfriend or w/e

It never ends and there's always somebody out there with better shit than you, explain this to him while you put your foot in his ass. Violence is the only answer sometimes. Most of the time. All the time.

He either quit is job or got fired and is still in denial. WoW is his soft warm blanky for now.

Oh, he's probably quite addicted and has been let go or whatnot. The extended "vacation" is pretty much a good descriptor right there.

Then again, I've known people who have been in the same exact situation. The only kicker was that there was a final note, usually where they neglect their current boyfriend/girlfriend a whole lot more until they get a nice GAME OVER in the relationship department.

Then that spirals into even ~more~ WoW and...ugh. Downward spiral, indeed.

I hope you can arrange somewhere else to live, because it sounds like your buddy might be buying a ticket to evictiontown.

Also, his girlfriend is coming by this morning in about a hour and most likely I will confront her about his. Should I do it and if so what should i say to her about this.

I was addicted to WOW for a long time. I was hooked on the feud between Terri Gold and Danger for the belt, and Caged Heat was unstoppable. And who can forget the beautiful Beach Patrol and Lana Star, and my fave, the bad girl, Riot!

I loved that show.

Seriously though, I think you're right OP. Even the most core of WoW players I know wouldn't spend their three weeks vacation playing it.

Well he has been going with her for over a year and half now. Now he started playing WoW like about six weeks ago. Before WoW, he played and shit load of warhawk (about 5 hrs a day) and the warhammer beta (4 hrs a day)

Also I confronted her this morning and she knew what was going on (except. For him playing WoW for like 10 hrs a day during his "vacation" and the 15 hrs from last nite. She told me to talk to him about and he would rather spill the beans than her. I don't know what to expect in about 6 hrs

Do your friend a favor, beat his ass and destroy his computer.

He'll be pissed for awhile, but i should be enough to wake his ass up and get his priorities straightend out.

That did it for me, my computer was taken away by my parents I was pissed and enraged for a while but then I got over it and realized that WoW is a real waste of time. I would just "accidently" spill a crapload of water into the computer motherboard or something to fry it, or if he's computer dumb open it when he's not looking and disconnect a couple of things, or cut a cable or two to stop it from working for a while, he'll want to kill you at first but he'll thank you later.

I agree. I don't think you should destroy his computer though. I would hid it in the trunk or your car or some shit. If he has any problems with you throw an overhand right and KO his ass. It's for his own good :)

My old roommate became a serious WoW addict. His girlfriend came out of the shower once and went straight to his desk...and he didn't even look away from his screen. Thankfully, he kicked that addiction. Again. I think we're up to the fourth time, but that girl is didn't stick around after the third.

I had an ex that was addicted to all sorts of MMORPGs, Neverwinter Nights, FFonline, SWOnline, you name it he played it. And when his best friend tried to get him into WoW I just about cried and begged him to shut the Fuck up because I was pregnant at the time and already battling for attention against three other games he was playing. Plus he was making us go broke by playing so many at once and calling in sick to work so many times. He never got over it. He decided he would rather abandon me and our son and try to find a girl that would put up with it instead. But he didn't get that. Now he's stuck in a marriage he probably doesn't want because if he leaves her he'll end up paying child support for my son and her son, who she forced him to adopt, and their daughter that they had together. Fucking moron. Serves him right.

I'll never let my son play that shit.

still don't about his work situation but I'll lay off for another week.

AFAIK, since the time I came home from class today, he has only played like 1 1/2 hrs. I guess my lil confrontation with his girlfriend might had some doing.
