How addicted to ARK are you?

Recommended Posts

I really am curious to hear, read, or see, how far you have gone in this game.

Really am curious about your addiction. B|

 

 

 

 

This is how far I have gone. I actually put a badge on the CPU cooler of my Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. And I host servers for the game from off this thing.

XBOX Official Servers = 203 Days 15 Hours Played.

My Xbox Gamer tag avatar is the Aberattion shot, just like in this forum.

One of my other Gamertags is ArkSurvivor212

Up until a few weeks ago, I still kept my Legacy tribe alive every week.

Before playing on XBOX I played PC version for a few months, back when there was no Redwoods, no Swamps, no adverse effects for being hot/cold.

I go on and off with Ark, and usually drop it out a bit when it starts feeling like a compulsion. I try to keep it that way with most games nowadays. That said, Ark was a borderline addiction for the first 5 or 6 months of release because I started playing it about the same time I decided to try life without the bottle. (3 years strong this month *toot toot*)

Wildcard cured my addiction themselves a year ago.

You mean they changed your compulsion from playing it to complaining about it? :P

My wife thought I'm playing ARK too much but since I've seen you guys' level of addiction. Mine is not so much, just 1,400 hours.

I hear what you're saying, but be careful with that logic. It's easy to normalize unhealthy behavior by surrounding yourself with people more unhealthy. That's how WoW ruins lives, lol.

I can quit whenever I want, I don't have a problem. Everything is under control.

Man, I was waiting for the last update and stopped playing. The update took a really long time and my 'addiction' just tanked. My wife hurt her back too and she hasn't been able to play for three months. I was waiting for the recent Xbox update to hit before bothering to play again, because I have really lost interest. Super odd for how into it I was.
