Addicted to NationStates? Then swing by with an anonymous puppet!

Maybe share why you think you are? How do you cope with it?

Or tell us why you think you do NOT suffer a gaming disorder despite having 300 nations in which you log in daily every 3min 30h a day!

Is it worth it? Is this game really that good? A part of me thinks it is, probably not a healthy part.

Don't expect professional help. Don't expect any help! Which you probably anyway don't seek.

But....

You are not alone.

and to acknowledge to oneself that there might be an issue doesn't harm, right?

What's that?

Screamers are some sort of jumpscares which are very loud to make the viewer be scared, laugh or be surprised.

Ohh....you mean like the 'guy finds a big spider on the wall and when he goes to trap it it jumps on him/on the camera' kind of thing? 🕷️📱📹

I think so, btw go to screamer.wiki for more info.

Pictou wrote:Howís the addiction going, chaps? Am I right in thinking most of us are at peace with our presence in NationStates at the moment?

Iím down to 66 nations from a high of 104. The majority are puppets that do nothing at all.

I have never really recovered from the Mod sweep which ended Unindicted coconspirator et al. but I have slowly built back up to eighteen nations.

Itís hard to build down because you put work into building a nation and donít want to let it go.

I was in peace because not active at all, or because completely in control. Then I recently had quite some stress and fun in a founderless region. The fun was bigger than the stress, so I enjoyed it anyway.

Things have settled now but I'm struggling a little as I can't pull out completely anytime I want because I took over responsibility in this region, which I usually totally avoid.

But I do things slowly the last few days, so it is still fine. And I think I will be able to further reduce NS time in the long run. So peace is not there yet but is in sight, I'd say.

May I ask if this peak with the 104 nations was a long time ago, or rather recently? You are still reducing?

My number of nations exploded when I started to be more active again last year. But all together I care less about them, at least I think so.
It was the first time this year (since my restart about 5 years ago), that I intentionally let two nations go.

Zapfish(Japanese: デンチナマズ, Denchinamazu) are a type of an electric catfish with the ability to produce a strong electrical current and are the main power source of Neo Splatoonia. In some far outposts or camp sites of the country, Zapfish spawn are used in some levels to power the same amount of energy generated by one adult Zapfish, and each of them were kept in spotlight-like containers. These are well known as Mini Zapfish.

Appearance
Zapfish appear similar to an LinkAnglerfish or Link Catfish, and a light bulb's filament. They seem to have a large head with two small eyes, two nostrils, and a big pair of orange lips. Below the head is a smaller body.


Great Zapfish
Since time immemorial, a rare type of electric catfish known as the Zapfish has been prized by Inkling society as a source of energy. In fact, the entire city of LinkInkopolis is powered by a single 100-year-old Great Zapfish.

I ignored these cards for the longest time. Then I played them for a 3 month but stopped again.

You are really into getting scared? : )

It is not for me. Also horror movies are a pain to watch for me.

I once got tricked into playing Sad Satan, and I am really into screamers.

Itís good to hear from you Molch. Glad to know youíre in control.

Roaming in the Gloaming, 18 nations is a good number. Very civilised.

Onwards and upwards !!!
