You might have noticed, or not noticed at all, that I did not do a column last week. It is in part to do with the subject of today’s column of course, but most of it was me burying into my exams because university sometimes needs that extra time spent. But what it boils down to, I was burned out on the game. I could not be bothered to play. I played some other games (Hearts of Iron 3, a World War 2 strategy game, and World of Warcraft respectively) instead, while mulling over what was keeping me from the game. Now I am playing again, and I shall tell you the small lessons I have learned over the past week about burnout and The Old Republic, so you might know what to expect if you ever encounter it, or what you might do to counter it.
