The 20 Days of World of Warcraft: Day Nineteen

How many hours do you play a week, roughly?  

The number of hours per week that I play has varied over my WoW career. Currently, I pretty much only play on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (my days off of work). I'm not sure I could clearly estimate how much time I spend playing on those days. Afterall, this here blog takes up a good portion of my free time as well, and is often done interspersed into my WoW time. Can I include blog time in my /played since it is WoW related? Hehe.

Rough estimate, I'd say I spend about 20-25 hours per week actually playing the game. Bump it up to 30-35 hours if we include my blogging time. I don't think this is unreasonable. Some other people would say I'm obsessed and addicted and whatever other stupid labels there might be. To those people I say, "What if I took away your television?" Tell me you're not "addicted" to TV, then we'll talk.


  1. Wow, that's nothing! I probably spend ~50 hours per week with WoW, some 60 if you include the blogging :) But then I don't have much work or other stuff to do right now. And I agree on the Tv analogy... people never learn.

  2. I used to spend a lot more time in game, namely while I was unemployed. Probably closer to the amount of time you spend on it. I don't think there's anything wrong with either of us! If I had more time, I would definitely play more. ~shrug~ For some reason my body keeps telling me I need sleep. Maybe its partly because its winter, and maybe because I work long hours.
