    “What’s more important, getting a PhD in order to get a killer job or not getting kicked from a mobile game group?”

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

    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. : )

    Well, it's been a year since my post. In the past 6 months I worked really hard got 1 paper published and another finished. So consider it a fruitful year.

    Don't really know how this works but if any other student (Don't have to be a PhD) want to make more friends can pm me. It would be nice if you are in Norway but distance doesn't really matter, it's corona out there and I can not go anywhere. :)

    Lets be honest 100% study is not efficient and 100% game the same, just try to put 50% in study 10% in game and 40% in something else in life and you will be just fine, you can also take into consideration that tomorrow you can have a stroke and die, so do today what makes you happy, no a game cannot make you happy.

    I'm doing master's atm. If it's too time consuming, maybe consider not doing arena and moving to some retired alliance. It's also a lot less stressful, and imo of you're not in top tiers of aw/aq, the drop in rewards is not that significant, if you still do uc eq and side quests.
    If you're a good player, I'd expect your current alliance to gladly take you back later. Can't guarantee you'd want to go back
