    Icon1 Burnout

    So I suffer from burnout on basically any game I play, even ones I really like, like this one and Warframe. You would normally think burnout goes away after maybe a couple days, a week, or some short period of time, but for me burnout can last 1 or 2 months. Rarely burnout will lift early, but it mostly doesn't. What I'm wondering is will this affect my membership of AOD even though I still try to post often on the forums? Secondly, what do you guys do to alleviate your own burnout?

    Thanks for reading.

    Remain active on the forums and you should be just fine as long as your communication line between you and the division doesn't break. To avoid burnout you need to find other things to do while you are playing a game, and what I mean is you need to take breaks. Playing only one game at a time can be fun, and last awhile, but really you should be taking breaks periodically to avoid getting sick of something. Playing a few rounds of MB2, and then going spectator to watch a video, or read a book/article may help. Outside of those things I believe you should not worry about burnout, and enjoy the company you have in AOD to keep you going.

    Markyle knows whats up, burnout is definitely a reality for gamers and isnt always treated the same depending on the person. My 2 cents would be to try differnt game types within MB2 itself even, like open/FA/duel what have you mixing it up helps and even more in depth would be messing with different class setups and play styles in each mode. But if nothing you try helps dont worry about it, just mess with some other games that dont share the same kind of intensity or even move to real life things.

    It's because you are not burning out on Video Games, you are burning out on your computer. Get a real hobby. Exercise, raise mini-horses, take up the bmx bike... Find a girlfriend.


    Computer games are just a source of fun, but if you make them your life you will get burned out on them entirely.

    Pick up the guitar, learn a new program, play some board games with friends, draw, write something, make cookies for me.

    Having a life besides video games helps pretty much avoiding the burnout.

    Pursue a woman or man of your dreams. Do the unspeakable if that is the only way you will succeed.

    I just keep playing through my burnouts, eventually it gets fun again. But jumping to a another games also helps me out sometime. Also, being on TS with a good group of people helps.

    Dont play any mmo that looks like it is Older than WoW, AKA LOTRO. Just because its lord of the rings doesn't mean u should play it. plus plays practically in the same old outdated fashion.
