"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 guess utopia is a place to lost myself in. just when you feel the world has turned its back against you, you turn to utopia, because you know it is always there for u. i have actually been searching for a game like this for ages...now i am addicted. i learnt a lot, from forums, when interacting with fellow kd mates... it is like a second school.

"Is this the life you wish to lead?"

I have been playing utopia for about 6 ages now, to some this my be alot to others it is nothing at all. I have been loging in to utopia from utopia temple for the whole time and just now desided to create an account here so i can post my opion. To answer the question on if utopia rules our lives well yes it kinda does, when im doing good my whole day seems to go better and i can work harder and life is good, but when im not doing so good vice versa. Also yes i have had trouble sleeping when my armies are gone during war and have woken up at insane hours to check my account!

I think utopia becomes much more than a game the longer you play with the same pll in a kingdom. I've been playing with the same guys/girls for all my 6 ages of playing. I have met people all troughout the world and have made lots of friends over a game!



When some of my biddies first talked to me about this game i said it was the stupidest thing i've ever heard, i also made fun of them for about 2 weeks before tring it myself. This game becomes dangerouslly addictive for a while and seems to last b/c of constant chages throughout the ages. Now im at the point where i ask for soms of hot chicks and have accentdentlly written a check to my province name!
