I just thought it might be interesting to know where we all fall. I know some of the statements are sort of silly, so just answer by # amount rather than by statement. I honestly can't even guess what most of the answers might be.

Can't vote, none of the answers in the first 2 questions apply :rolleyes:

You need an "other" option or something...

 

(For people who don't work outside the home, for example, or who are bedridden or the like, or don't work at all, etc)

and

(For people who might have donated $ but not bought anything, or don't buy from the shop for other reasons than "it's a FREE game, duh")

Hehe, nice poll. :brooding:

 

I admit, been skipping school now and then, EL just is so much more fun...

Iirc, spent around 20 bucks, so not very much.

Online maybe 5-12 hrs a day, depending on various factors.

 

Soooo, ye, pretty addicted. :P

I selected the "free game" option but I did make a small donation early on, and I did pay bot fees.

 

I selected the "job? school? life?" option . . . . I really need to look for a job but who has time for that? I'm getting close to a manu level and my bot is amost out of rings and I could use some more hydrogenium and . . .

I'm not quite as addicted as I am to coffee, but I'm pretty addicted. The only reason I've never donated is because I'm that freaking poor. Someday, Ent, someday. All this spring I've been in old-computer-enforced EL rehab, and I'm so cheating. Look where I'm posting. :brooding: And I spend all the time I would have been in game writing EL stories instead. When the tunics became makable, I actually considered buying a whole new computer for about 5 minutes, until I remembered I'm broke. :P

- 3-5 work/school doesn't allow me to take more (only last year in my last year of high school when I got bored of school sometimes)

- 2nd poll is private :brooding:

- 21-30 hours/week (used to play a bit more when I was at school, now busy with uni/work)

 

I think if you spend more than 70 hours a week playing games, it's not very healthy, and you need to find something else to do...seriously.

1 - Why taking days off when you can play from work? j/k :P

 

2 - I have not donate anything so far except for creating accounts on the PK server. But I try to do another kind of contribution. :brooding:

 

3 - I play only the evening after my work and sometimes the week-end when I'm not out (quite rare) so less than 30 hours/week I think.

1) I haven't taken a day off to play EL... No need to overdo it.

 

2) Haven't spend a $ on EL, though I have bought p2p for life, a name change, a race change and a Black Bandana (Totals up to something like 70$?) with gc, getting other players to pay the real stuff.

 

3) 21-30 hours a week, much more during the holidays ^^

Hi,

 

1. As a homemaker I do not need to skip work ... play while at work ... :icon13:

 

2. Spend no $ so far ... might go for a gnome some day (human at the moment) ...

 

3. Some weeks I play hardly at all (0-5 hours/week), other weeks harvesting and mixing like crazy and ingame for up to 30 hours/week ... so something like 21-30 hours/week if you'd look at a whole year I guess ... :P

 

Bye :D

0 sickdays to play EL, i rather earn money so i can keep playing it.

 

No $ spent so far but planning on it, when it happens i donno..

 

I chose the 11-20 option for hours played but that varies alot depending on how RL is treating me so sometimes it's alot less and sometimes more

It's a game.

100-500$ - Not all that back and more selling accounts/storages.

Not sure on hours a week, but it's gonna be alot less now. Maybe 1-2 a week tops.
