I still haven€t fixed my PC; the damage is more extensive than I first thought.
How does a game get to be so important to you, that important things like job, family, and money start to mean less?
I can€t tell you have much I miss flying, all I want is to get back on War Clouds.

Does this make me a sad person or a victim?

Like you and many others I admit an addiction to this fine game. But it's still a game and it should NEVER, EVER get in the way of important things like family.

If your tounge is not firmly planted in cheek you should look at the computer crash as a blessing and use the time to get back with THE most important thing a person can have, their family. One day even this game and it's progeny will be but a fond memory. And you can always reload it onto the computer.

You can't say the same thing about family.

Relax, breathe, War Clouds will more than likely be there when you get back.

To long for something enjoyable doesnt make anyone a victim.
Some people hate their jobs and life in general if its hard. Everything needs balance though.
Some work so hard and often that they dont have time to think about anything, not even family, even if the family was the reason to work hard in the first place.

Too much is never good.

Another thought.
Many of the mature members on this board may at times feel a little embarrassed for spending a lot of time with a "game" but thats an evolutionary thing and their parents likely belonged to the group that thought everything but work was a waste of time. Its kind of a struggle and takes time to change.

For me this game has a long range of qualities beyond playing and has enabled me to understand and contemplate on aspects of combat and airwarfare and history that would have been lost to me otherwise.
It would have been enough as amusement but it can be so much more.

Compared to some other mates on this board I'm lucky that my wife "wants" me to play and have fun. She thinks that history stuff is good too but she really enjoys when I'm happy. I'm glad for her hobbies aswell. So there is a balance here.
Sometimes life just sücks and one needs to balance it up with something positive for a while.

so hang in there http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You're not a victim.

You're a survivor.

I guess it's a good thing you don't play with old cars http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif "Yeah, 2400 bucks for heads doesn't sound too expensive. Where's that credit card?
