Hey there :)
How do you guys handle your playtime in WL. I mean time runs so fast if I am in WL, not in real of course:)
I am now thinking about a better time management, e.g during homework I make one exercise and then I play a game. Playing in bed is quite a problem, I have to work on that problem too. I am good at school but even though I need sleep. A further thing is, as one can play on mobile you can play nowadays everywhere that is good and bad at the same time.

I am a college student in an intense major, with two club commitments, and I do just fine. I think a key is that I am efficient in completing my homework and in studying. Believe it or not I have not done a single all-nighter in college. Certainly there are times where I have to be inactive, particularly on weekdays, however, keeping my md game count at ~25 games, plus keeping extra taxing team games to a minimum, helps me to keep my priorities where they should be. I take turns between class periods and any other time I have a small amount of time where it is unreasonable to get any homework done. I do this without data on my phone as well so I'm not always connected. I take breaks from my homework by playing a few multi-day turns. I stick to 3 day boot games so if I have to take a day off completely I can. I use my vacations strategically.

All in all, it's up to you finding your balance. And I hope you do.

You handle it pretty good @Aura!
That 1day 6 hour on QM multiday I dislike too. Lost a few about that because I used to have 3 days :)
Thank you for sharing your strategy with me :') There are a few things that could be useful for me!

See ya on discord :)

You're going to need to teach me some of your time management skills, Aura. Mine are currently exceptionally poor, and it's going to hurt me in college I'm afraid.

Personally, my secret to managing my time is to just form a little schedule of sort to do all your turns at once. I usually check around once a day, do all my turns on my multiday games, maybe play a real-time if I have time and then I do something else. Maybe it's just because I'm used to balancing games and schoolwork pretty well (and now streaming for a few hours some days) but I agree with aura in making sure you don't choose a lot of multi day games unless the game is like a diplo or something and has a booting time of at least 3 days if you have to focus on something one day and can't play your turn.

It's a long video (pro-tip: watch everything at 4x speed so you can watch 4 times as many videos) but it's a good systematic way of managing your time and avoiding procrastination. Also hits on a paradox I really like- often, the more time you spend on something, the less likely it is that you're doing it right.

I don't play much Warzone anymore, but still burn about 4-5 hours/day on gaming (and pornography, and Netflix, and a shitton of car videos but I already said pornography) and it works out pretty fine as long as I stay organized about it. There's a huge difference between taking a 1-hour Warzone break on a whim (to avoid actual work, as a form of self-sabotage) and taking a 1-hour Warzone break as part of your schedule where you've already thought about how you'll accomplish everything you actually need to do that day.

Another thing is that it's a lot easier to develop bad habits than good ones, especially if the good ones involve putting in work. So periodically shake up your life, do things differently, and deliberately trim out things that you think are important (e.g., delete stuff you spend a lot of time on and value a ton) just as a way of introducing serendipity and mitigating entropy.

Everyone has their own motivation. For me, I have an Arya Stark-style list of all the people I want to kill someday and I read it to myself out loud every time I feel like giving up- works rather well. Once you find yours, it'll really help you out.

@MrTrolldemort
Yeah, a little schedule would be good, do you make it in writing or just in your mind? :)

@knyte
LMAO :)))
Even learned a few slang expressions from the video like 'dick around' and 'cluster fucking' :)
The efficient of the video is not so big, could say the same in about 5 sentences, lol :)

Why do you need Pornographie? :')

Playing during boring lectures is good and mobile version is good, if you're playing casual games. You can study/do homework and play.
MD is easy, as you can postpone it to whenever you can find time-but RT is bit difficult, as sometimes games can just stretch on and on. Also, better not to take Warlight games too serious and spend hours and hours for it, spoiling the fun of studies ;)
