Anyone who has any idea about any MMORPG will instantly recognize the phrase. Time sinks are the worst thing since... well, there are a lot of bad things, but I'm gonna go with Kameo. They (obviously:stare steal your time, and dont give anyone but the MOST hardcore of gamers any satisfaction. And even THOSE gamers say they could definately do without them. If you've searched some game forums online, you've probably already seen the rants that people can get into when speaking about time sinks and how ridiculously evil and vile and widespread they are.:nod: They're everywhere in MMOs, and usually come with mundane names, such as 'mining' or 'woodcutting' or 'jewelcrafting'. Some MMOs are entirely time sinks What i want to know here is- Are they gonna end? And by asking that sorta dumb question i want to know- Who is gonna end 'em? = Post me your thoughts on sinks and their causes. Are they necessary? Do they accomplish anything? Is there a remedey in sight? Will they EVER END?
