The only extra money I spend on games is for expansion packs. I don't buy in-game stuff to help me "win" or compete or whatever. I'll get it eventually or if I can't because you have to pay for it, I just won't get it. And I'm a-okay with that.

Heard a lot about Dota2 and LoL. Never tried any of them though. I've kind of dropped out of the whole RPG stuff for the moment.

I spent so much money on Neverwinter, and I didn't even buy a Founder Pack. I have a SERIOUS problem with random loot boxes. I went back through my transactions and realized I had spent about $300-400 on Neverwinter, over the past 3 years I've spent like $600-700 on Dota2, and I've spent about $200-300 on GW2. I have a serious problem.. and I'm not currently actively playing any of those games.
Well I can admit that while I am 100% free player in Neverwinter MMO I have spent more then 500 euro on World of Warcraft. WOW was a good game to me, but eventually I got bored on it.

And that is why I avoid any kind of in game transactions. If it is a FTP game I go ahead and play and buy nothing. Don't need to spend more money that I don't have on it...
Yes, but the lovely thing with Neverwinter MMO is that you can actually be free player and still powerful.

You should avoid Neverwinter MMO community with that logic at all costs. You will be hated in the forums of Neverwinter if you even try to suggest that logic or the moderators will simply remove your post. When I rarely mention that I am free player in Neverwinter forums then I also say that I respect all paying customers.

In Neverwinter MMO yes there are cosmetics things you can buy also, but more then 90% is none cosmetic. I have the opposite morals regarding then you. I refuse to buy something cosmetic unless it falls under X.. factor you know for adults only.

Hi first of all my previous post was not meant to insult anyone. Many of you have studied more(I mean higher rank I am an engineer) then me by the way so be happy. I am taking a programming course that starts January 2015, but I am not full time studying it is a net course you can do that on your own time evenings etc. though at some point we meet to go through exercises but that is an evening course so even employed people could take it.

Personally I believe programming is better to find permanent long term job instead of IT support. My brother works fulltime as a programmer.

One last thing about Neverwinter MMO. I have a new project now. I have decided as 100% free player in Neverwinter MMO decided to create a Rank 10 enchantment which is highest possible in the game. Rank 10 enchantments are so expensive so if you would try to buy it with real money that enchantment would cost roughly 50 euro. That is very expensive since that one character can have many enchantments and most players want more then one character to play with.

Most of the Neverwinter MMO community uses rank 5-9 enchantments. My plan is either to sell the Rank 10 enchantment that I produce/create during year 2015 or if no one buys for the price I want well fine then I use it myself. Finally this is NOT a plan to make real money in the world. I am only talking about how I try to get money in Neverwinter MMO as ingame money to buy other game stuff.

Finally what I like about the producer Perfect World is that in future I could transfer my Astral Diamonds and ZEN the game currency to another MMO that Perfect World is producer of. None of those other MMO:s interest me now, but hard to predict future years.

I get to work for most of that week. So it's whatever.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

Yeah be happy. I am happy that my real life friend who is part time teacher(not fulltime, but gets full hour salary so not a trainee, but never works fulltime i.e not 40 hours or not 37,5 hours which is typical in my country) and who also plays Neverwinter MMO has though usually a casual player for once more time to play Neverwinter MMO.

I will play later today Neverwinter MMO with my real life friend who is part time teacher.

As for actual Christmas it is about meeting relatives, play board and card games.

However this EAT EAT EAT and do no exercise on Christmas is not my thing! There is nothing wrong eating good food, but I need physical exercise even on Christmas.

That said even on Christmas eve 24 December my luxury gym Elixia Sats is open. The only day the gym is closed totally is 25th December the Christmas day.

I am not a hardcore body builder i.e weight lifter generally, but I like good exercise. I have trained martial Arts in the past and one of my favorite group training in the gym are cycling but also this:


One simple exercise that many can do with relatives on Christmas during days is of course simply taking a walk. We have "warm" climate right now in my country so I don't expect cross country skiing possibility(and that is not my favorite thing anyway) in south of Finland during Christmas. February is usually though very cold and lots of snow in my country.

The production facility is closed all next week so I have the whole week off. Annoyingly it was forced PTO so I don't get to roll over those hours to next year. January is going to be ridiculously busy. Wowsers.

Little Mabel won't be able to be here it's our worst fear. She's busy working on her garden that she's growing up in space.


Why hello there forumite. Would you like me to review some moderation you did not agree with? Never fear! PM is here! Want to be a better poster? Check on this link! And this one!

They always seem to find  a way to make you use all of your PTO so that hardly any of it rolls over. My wife is in a similar situation where unless she wants to work on Christmas she has to use PTO. Though I think some of hers is still going to roll over since she doesn't have to worry about a plant shut down.

The first time my wife said PTO I was really confused as to why they had parents involved... Darn teaching.
