Most people can enjoy UT without it having an effect on their lives, this isn’t for those people. Nor am I one of those that comes back on the forum to bash the game and tell everyone to quit. This is for people that have that feeling that UT is inherently bad for their health.
I was more addicted to this game than I care to admit. I didn’t even think it was good, I hated it in almost every way yet I’d still tune in at 6pm wondering what content they’ve given us. It was a strange place to be, being obsessed by something you despise. The idea of quitting seemed difficult as I would be giving up something that occupied so much of my time and had done since the inception of UT, talking about it, coming on the forum, building teams on futbin at work etc. So I made a list (mentally) including all the things I dislike about myself when I’m playing UT. Some of the things on the list were - being a grumpy ❤️❤️❤️❤️ towards my gf if she phoned while I was playing or if I had to come off fifa for an unexpected reason. I’d drive my self crazy with the blatant injustice in the game and the obvious EA manipulation geared towards profiteering. Basically it was having a detrimental effect on my mental health, not to the point I need a doctor or anything but fifa would definitely effect my moods. As ashamed as I am to admit it, I also blown a few hundred on Fifa points despite despising the game (yeah, I’m that guy, sadly). That’s when I knew something wasn’t right
I quit 3 months or so ago. Still got my account with 4 million coins or so and I have no desire to return. It was difficult at first, I’d tune in to the forum to give me some kind of fix, I’d build the odd team on futbin etc. After a week or so, you’d see people complaining about stuff that used to drive you nuts and you’d think - wow that was me, glad I’m out of it now. My moods improved, things are as good as they’ve ever been with my gf, My work life seems easier and my chill time is actually chill time now as I don’t have fifa throwing random injustices my way.
Basically, if this game is causing you unnecessary grief then quitting is easy and will definitely improve your life on some level.
