My internet has been so sh*tty since Sandy, that I haven't played much in the way of MMOs. Verizon SAID the stuff on their end would be finished over a month ago. It was decent for about a week, and then got worse than ever before. Pretty much just stayed there ever since. Had people out to check it. They say it's "fine." But 3 different routers didn't fix the problem. It's more like our internet is fast, or barely working/out, and there's no in-between.
So, if I'm playing something online, it has to be solo-friendly and generally non-competitive. So... I'm playing EVE. Which, of course, doesn't REALLY fulfill either requirement. It's solo-friendly, sure, but... yeah. I'm pretty much sticking to only low-risk tasks in high-security space. I handle combat in drone boats, mine, take low-risk freight jobs that I auto-pilot (low-risk meaning I can cover the cost if I get ganked without breaking my bank). And since your character continues to train skills offline, I don't get so angry when I just can't play.
Fortunately, I have so little time for gaming that it's not a massive problem. I commute 3-4 hours a day, have made serious attempts to spend at least 30 minutes a day working out, and am trying to actually spend time with friends while we're still all living at home. Netflix is causing me more grief than MMOs.
It'll be close, but Romney has the momentum.
