"Does Utopia Rule Our Lives?" by KINGPIN
It has just hit me how much Utopia controls us. We are addicted to a game, and it makes us do things that we would have thought stupid before starting it. People have been driven to waking up at insane hours during the night simply to check on a computerised simulation of a world. We are mindless zombies that pretend that we are the rulers of an imaginary world.

Ask yourself this, when you succeed in a thief operation, or take 100 acres of land, knowing that you're safe and no-one can touch you, building defense equal to an american battle fleet, does it give you a rush? Does the andrenaline pump through your body knowing that your democratic skill and strategy has led you succesfully to a greater goal?

Are we people sad, letting a simple game control our whole lives? People posting messages like "HELP!! I CANT LOG IN" after trying once to try and access the game - having been denied the desire to play, we panic. But what if Utopia should end? Will sites like Utopia Temple cease to exist? Or will we simply change to another game... like Dominion Temple, or Ambar Temple? And why do we treat Mehul as a god? Yes, he created the first game like this, and yes it is good and yes we all love it. But when people post things in the Bugs & Suggestions forum like "I GOT TO POST UNDER MEHUL!!" and "THANKS MEHUL, YOUR THE GREATEST!" and "Mehul, you ROCK!", it is merely sucking up. He may see your post, but he will discard it without a second glance or thought. Is this the life we want to lead?

I don't think we shall truly know until it happens, which i doubt - too many people are hooked, and unless Mehul wants to increase suicide rates accross the world, he wouldn't do it.

Take a minute to think about it...

Erm, its a game, a fun and interesting one, but a game no less. If you get up in the middle of the night to check your utopia you have problems, maybe you should consider getting a dog?

Mehul is not a god, he eats and sh!ts like the rest of us. He is very clever, granted, but honestly :)

Utopia does seem to govern our lives doesn&#039t it.It kinda does make ya feel good if u cripple a enemy province or u take 200 acres from someone but noone in the real world cares,thats the bad thing about it.I think utopia will see atleast round 30-40 and as long as it remains free people will play it and even if it isn&#039t free i still think people will play because those who have played since 1st or 2nd round are hooked just because they want to see how its gonna evolve age to age.This my thoughts on utopia
