Any other hobbies or interests left to dust since you started warshiping? 

I'm a scale modeler and what free time I would have would got to my kits. As of late, they have been left unattended for sometime since I started this game. Even the warship kits.....

But because of this game I've been looking at various cruiser kits recently, particularly of ones of the ships I have -but will I put the time in to build them as opposed to battling with them?

Model Trains....  I still have an unfinished layout.

ATVs..  I have 3 that need engine rebuilds..  no time.

Electronics..  I have an IEEE-488 GPIB to USB interface that needs debugged for certain older 'trouble' instruments that play games with the status timing.

to name a few.

A story on FanFiction.Net that hasn't been touched in months.

It's mostly written, but hasn't been edited.

Basically the last 3 years of my life. 

And reading. Oh, how I miss reading.

Working on my car (87 Grand National), reading, other games.  Trying to find a balance.  Getting to be less than 2 hours a day and I'm skipping more and more days.  It's a good thing, I'd like to play this game for a long time, and with that goal in mind, for me personally, a slow and steady pace wins the race.  I wanted to unlock a lot of T10s this year, now I'm looking at only a couple.  The xmas event was an eye opener for me on how not to play the game as I tried to do every single thing.

Playing musical instruments, mainly all four Sax (beginner with intermediate music theory training) Bass, (very beginner), or trumpet ( beginner but I can hang with easy music pieces).  Music will, as of now, is my ever lasting drug. I cannot go a day without music, a day without music is like a chef without food porn. I know I am hot wired differently then anyone else but I wouldn't have it any other way. Give me music or give me death.

Model trains. Cool man. Me and my dad used  to have a layout loosely based on union pacific. Loved the big boy and it's little
brother steamers.  All was in HO scale and Athearn branded engines and rolling stock. Old man did have a brass model of Big
Boy. " Im a tragic train and truck nut "

Reading.

If I didn't have a computer to play with I'd definitely do more reading. I used to read two to three books a week but now it's more like one every two to three months. Of course, part of the reason I don't read books as much as I once did is that I've read thousands of them already over my 60 or so years. Most of my reading now is via the Internet and it involves things like short informative articles that flesh out the documentaries I watch. I'm watching my way through PBS Eons, currently. I am also reading the Caine Mutiny, which apparently I never got around to reading as it seems new to me. As with most (not all) books, it's much better than the movie.

I've got a lot of Athearn.  Before I got into WOWS, I was getting into some craftsman MDC Kitbashing stuff.

Thousands of dollars, hundreds of hours?

Finished Aeschylus.  The translations are as marvelous as one would imagine the original Greek to be.

Working on the Oedipus cycle (Sophocles).  Some mature subject matter.

My son & his wife are in the planning stage of building a model RR. They are building a shed on his farm which will be large enough to have a layout. His wife enjoys scratch building the buildings they will use on the layout.

Playing WOWS has taken me away from some scale model building and another online game. I still technically do both, just much slower than I used to.
