Hi all

Still enjoying my BF2 daliance and as some of you may know it has a much vaunted online stats tracker and you can get promotions and stuff.

OBSERVE!

Some of the guys tracked have got ridiculous scores running into the hundreds of thousands. So I decided to check out their stats, more specifically hours online and average hours per day....


some of this guys are averaging 11.86 Hours per day!!!

i mean seriously! they must be unemployed and have serious health social and development skills...

11.86 hours per day, fecking hell

It goes a long way to explaining the forums http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

its like another language, possibly the language centers of their brains have liquified and they have to rely on a simplified abreviated english.

i mean i have a pretty heavy (by my standards) 3 hour session and im tripping right out, having dreams about sniping and grenade launchers. I cant imagine how this affects them.

There is a new study in wich it seems like computergames does not activate the brain asmuch as thought before. At the moment the opposit seems to be happening in some respects. Computergames seems to deactivate parts of the brain and cause it to relax.
Reading difficult texts and solving mathproblems, for example, makes u tired but computergamers can sit and play sometimes up to 10 hours because the brain is resting and some parts deactivated.

I am partly disabled and cant do many of the things I used to. A high level of pain makes me tire quickly and especially when doing intellectual things like reading, But sometimes I can sit and fly online for 4-5 hours with minor difficulty. So, perhaps this study is on to something.

I assume it doesn't apply to all games but more quake style gaming where u more just react to whats happening?
Anyway I'll follow this one and see where it leads.

It's long been known that extended time in front of a monitor will discourage sleep. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find some of the other things that result as well.

There probably stat padders.

Guys that injure themselves then get there mates to give them med packs or shoot of all there ammo and there mates give them ammo packs and vice versa. Its becoming a problem with clans renting ranked servers from various leasing companies.

EA and all the leased ranked server providers are currently banning there accounts in there hundreds. I see these guys every day on wolfgaming.nets ranked servers trying to beef there stats up illegally...so we ban there accounts and report them to EA.

Anything over 11 hours a day is silly. Up to 10 is normal. Isn't it?

I think you are right. My experience is a bit different: Practikly taking I only can play on weekends; Now, when playing, the first 2-3 hours are allright, but after that I get so drunk, that I hardly can land safely. One more hour and I can not take off...

I don´t know how drunk I would get if I could play for 10 hours... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

LOL Fordfan, yeah i do most of my learning on the toilet!

As for the shift players i thought about that too- and for some IDs thats likely.

but im pretty sure some are purely individuals, check out BF2TRACKER.COM for the top scores.

I had a brain haemorraghe two years ago- im basically fine and very lucky. sometimes though i do feel a little funny with the stress of long gaming hours

LOL awesome!

This study seems quite accurate...

I too can sit back and fly in a relaxed DF server for hours and hours, while less time in online wars tires the hell out of me.

It's a pitty the online-stats are only available with some sites, where you have to register. I hope EA will fix it with the next patch, but knowing EA, they'll probably blame the community again for making it so difficult to deal with the problem, as they did in the first place, after they found out that completely unprotected stat-servers could be attacked by trojan, viruses and denial-of-access-attacks - complete surprise for a global con.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Did I ever say something bad about Ubi? I take it back....
