QFE!

Sure, I took the days the alliance PvP tournament was running off, but I scheduled PTO for them well in advance and it gave me a 3 day weekend. If you ever call in sick to work to play, then you've got a problem.

What if you own your business and pay others to work for you? Twisted Evil

Back in the day though, I actually took a week of vacation to play everquest when the first expansion came out. Sad i know...

Playing EvE all day on a day off = good.

Taking a day off to play EvE all day = bad.

Hehe, not actually taken a day off work, but I have skipped a few lessons at Uni... partly because I am a lazy arse and partly so I can play eve. Btw I'm a first year student so it doesnt really matter anyways:P

But yeah eve is wayyyy too addictive to be good for you Surprised

I took a 1/2 day off already just to pew pew.

But I get one day off work every two weeks (three day weekends every two weeks) and the recent holidays have all fallen on my day off. Since I normally had that day off, the holiday paid hours were just added to my vacation time to use whenever I wished.

Therefore, I've built up alot of extra days to take off for wars. I ♥ working for the government. :)

Real Life takes priority over EVE usually, but in a war like what is going on at the moment, It wouldn't hurt some poeple to show dedication to their alliance by taking the odd day off.

I know LV has since we keep them up untill like 5-8 AM uk times for like a week... If not work then maybe class.. cough cough chowdown cough cough...


I don't take anytime off for an e-poon game... I just play a few hours on weeknights. I play this game for fun so if something does hit me the way I like... I'll take a break or quit the game.

I've put Eve ahead of a lot of things in the past if a big op was on or something, but I've never put my job in jeopardy because of it. I've never taken a day off work for Eve no matter what and I never will take a day off work because of it.

Anyone who does needs to think about what pays the bills that allows you to play Eve.

I might work late one day so I can get away early the next if it suited....

I have taken a half day off for an egg camp and come home a few hours early from work twice for POS attacks.

Lock me up then!

Then there are those players that run plex's every day for the exploitable overseer respawn every 20 minutes, take the loot etc.. and then sell the billions of ISK on e-bay for REAL money and never get seem to get caught at it...

They play EVE for a living so they cannot even take a day off from it to play it.. or something like that... Because they would have to protect thier 10/10 plex ISK farm from the would be invaders..

But of course none of the above ever really happened.. and no one really sells ISK on e-bay or anywhere else.. and even if they did, no one would really spend real money for fake money.. ISK.. seriously?

... wow, did I get off topic... and why do I care if someone farms a 10/10 to sell ISK to pay for their rent anyway... does not affect my EVE playing.. at least I do not think it does... ugh
