"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...

I think it is better to be addicted to a internet game than to drugs and alcohol!
And everybody likes it, and is trying to get better each age.
And oke, there are a few people who get up in the night to check their account. But alot don't do that!
So it is oke to play!
And I don't say mehul is a god, but he is cool, coz he made the game!!!
And I AM HAPPY!

out strolling in the mall with my peers...

one asked me about the time; i instantly returned a question: "earth time or UTOPIAN TIME? oh! you see, I'm supposed to be home when the age ends, and it's at last hour of this month"

and they all looked at me and said: WHAT?!

If mehul, in a drunken rage, destroyed all of the servers and completely annihilated Utopia, I would have to thank him. I love the game and no matter what I always come back to it. I've quit for 1 or two ages... ok, ok, months... alright, weeks... Something about the game just grabs you and keeps you there. Other games such as Ambar, Dominion, and Kings of Chaos lack either the simplicity or the atmosphere.
