IMHO I think it's sad that anyone has notched up over 1000 hrs. I've had the game since 9th August and only just topped 200 hrs, mainly because I got laid off from work before christmas and then hammered the game since otherwise I'd still only have about 160-170hrs. I have a life, a gym membership and a season ticket to Old Trafford so I'm lucky if I can manage 10hrs in a week not in 1 day like some of the so called "top" players. Give it another couple of months, and I'll probably get bored of this game, but 1440 hrs on the same map, that would bore the crap out of me. I like Karkand but I couldn't play it 24/7.
That's my opinion anyway. Get a life, get out and meet girls, go drinking with your mates. Just get away from the computer once in a while, eh.
