    Something tells me you’re smart enough to know this answer. This music compilation helps me stay focused if that helps

    Study first, game later.
    You can always come back to the game without even need to pay.
    But for PhD? You need money to do that. Even more money if you failed and wanna do a retake, I guess.
    So yeah. Let's be smart and put aside the gaming pleasure until you have done your study.
    Just go casual with the game. Login to collect crystals, do AQ and AW, putting in 1mil points in 5* featured arena for the guaranteed 200 five-star shards, spend some energy in EQ and log out.

    I started playing this game during the final stage of my PhD, i.e. while working on my dissertation. I graduated in December. Not saying game isn't a distraction but we do exist. :)

    I'm studying a PhD in Physics and I'm uncollected in the game since january and I dont find trouble combining both.
    When I get up I spend my full energy and move in AQ/AW if I have to. Then I forget about my energy for 7 hours, ehich is almost my workday.
    Only issue is that I have to move in AQ ocasionally, take a couple of minutes though and continue with my research.

    You can still play the game .. just join a map 3 alliance or something ... even map 5 can be handled with 2-3 log ins.... then play the game when you feel like it ... study is not a 24 hour thing .. the brain needs some distraction ...

    It would be nice if Kabam had more solo game modes for students like us who are studying, but you shouldn’t have to worry about this game. Get that PhD for all of us!

    I’m sorry how many game of the year awards has Skyrim won?
  • Thanks everyone for your opinion. I guess I always know what is the right thing to do, but sometimes it 's just I can get this milestone award if I just play one more game. It is really good to know that there are other managed to balance life and work and I 've been spending less time on this game since the post. Hopefully things will get better.
    Thanks again for everyone.

    It's a bit both funny and awarkward for me when people notice this Peter and please don't take it as a complaint. I think I will study for myself first of all, and see how much I can please him. : )
