Eve and RL heart issues

(Erik Doshu) #1

If you have RL heart problems, do not play this game.

Simple as.

Are you a scientist or a doctor, who perfomed a study about the effects of playing eve online on various heart conditions and can proove your point?

If not, then shut up.

Edit: :wink:

It’s probably true that some games should come with warnings other than those about seizures!

Ultimately, it’s a decision not even for a doctor/mental health specialist, but for the player alone. Perhaps Erik was extending a friendly hand to would-be combatants with specific conditions. I’ve heard that in some EVE battles the adrenalin rush, pounding pulse, and sheer terror is very real.

Sounds like there may be a tale behind this…?

The stress is very real, Ill give you that, for me at least.

Real enough to cause me heartburns/jumps felt for the rest of the day.

Not my idea of fun, thats all.

Maybe you are to aggressive about it. Your answer indicates it a bit.
Perhaps you could try a more relaxing game. Like Flower or Journey.

You basically told him that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about and ended your post with “shut up”.

Are you sure he’s the aggressive one?

(Mark O'Helm) #8

You are right. I wrote it with a smile on my face. I guess, i should have added a smiley. :thinking:

I am sorry, that i offended you. It was not intentional.

(Mayhaw Morgan) #11

Would that have made it not aggressive in your mind?

i have looked at the translation of one specific word and hope i use the correct one: advertence can help easen the effects of stress.

as i have different psychical illness which is related to stress i train it partially with games.

That’s why I like to mine in lazy times.

I like to scan and hack and run low level combat sites.

(Mayhaw Morgan) #15

People do some pretty heinous things while smiling.

(CMDR-HerpyDerpy Hurishima) #16

Careful, the stress is coming through your text.

(Mark O'Helm) #17

Mhm, that is true. Maybe i smiled a bit like :sunglasses: and tried to trigger him.

(Mayhaw Morgan) #18

Maybe you should search your little soul and decide whether you want to be the hero or be the villain. I think you probably have a long climb, but you might still make it. :sunglasses:

Eve kills!

If you have RL heart problems you better visit a doctor and keep playing this game.
