They will go offline at the end of the current cycle which is near the end of this month. Keep me on steam if you want to play a game sometime.

Very Truly Yours,

I thought this was funny, noticed it in the DSM 5 that a friend was using:

Internet Gaming Disorder
Proposed Criteria
Persistent and recurrent use of the Internet to engage in games, often with other players,
leading to clinically significant impairment or distress as indicated by five (or more) of the
following in a 12-month period:
1. Preoccupation with Internet games. (The individual thinks about previous gaming
activity or anticipates playing the next game; Internet gaming becomes the dominant
activity in daily life).
Note: This disorder is distinct from Internet gambling, which is included under gam­
bling disorder.
2. Withdrawal symptoms when Internet gaming is taken away. (These symptoms are typ­
ically described as irritability, anxiety, or sadness, but there are no physical signs of
pharmacological withdrawal.)
3. Tolerance—the need to spend increasing amounts of time engaged in Internet games.
4. Unsuccessful attempts to control the participation in Internet games.
5. Loss of interests in previous hobbies and entertainment as a result of, and with the ex­
ception of, Internet games.
6. Continued excessive use of Internet games despite knowledge of psychosocial problems.
7. Has deceived family members, therapists, or others regarding the amount of Internet
gaming.
8. Use of Internet games to escape or relieve a negative mood (e.g., feelings of helpless­
ness, guilt, anxiety).
9. Has jeopardized or lost a significant relationship, job, or educational or career oppor­
tunity because of participation in Internet games.

Note: Only nongambling Internet games are included in this disorder. Use of the Internet
for required activities in a business or profession is not included; nor is the disorder intend­
ed to include other recreational or social Internet use. Similarly, sexual Internet sites are
excluded.
Specify current severity:
Internet gaming disorder can be mild, moderate, or severe depending on the degree
of disruption of normal activities. Individuals with less severe Internet gaming disorder
may exhibit fewer symptoms and less disruption of their lives. Those with severe Inter­
net gaming disorder will have more hours spent on the computer and more severe loss
of relationships or career or school opportunities.
Subtypes
There are no well-researched subtypes for Internet gaming disorder to date. Internet gam­
ing disorder most often involves specific Internet games, but it could involve non-Intemet
computerized games as well, although these have been less researched. It is likely that pre­
ferred games will vary over time as new games are developed and popularized, and it is
unclear if behaviors and consequence associated with Internet gaming disorder vary by
game type.
Diagnostic Features
Gambling disorder is currently the only non-substance-related disorder proposed for in­
clusion with DSM-5 substance-related and addictive disorders. However, there are other
behavioral disorders that show some similarities to substance use disorders and gambling
disorder for which the word addiction is commonly used in nonmedical settings, and the
one condition with a considerable literature is the compulsive playing of Internet games.
Internet gaming has been reportedly defined as an "addiction" by the Chinese govern­
ment, and a treatment system has been set up. Reports of treatment of this condition have
appeared in medical journals, mostly from Asian countries and some in the United States.
The DSM-5 work group reviewed more than 240 articles and found some behavioral
similarities of Internet gaming to gambling disorder and to substance use disorders. The
literature suffers, however, from lack of a standard definition from which to derive prev­
alence data. An understanding of the natural histories of cases, with or without treatment,
is also missing. The literature does describe many underlying similarities to substance ad­
dictions, including aspects of tolerance, withdrawal, repeated unsuccessful attempts to cut
back or quit, and impairment in normal functioning. Further, the seemingly high preva­
lence rates, both in Asian countries and, to a lesser extent, in the West, justified inclusion of
this disorder in Section III of DSM-5.
Internet gaming disorder has significant public health importance, and additional re­
search may eventually lead to evidence that Internet gaming disorder (also commonly re­
ferred to as Internet use disorder, Internet addiction, or gaming addiction) has merit as an
independent disorder. As with gambling disorder, there should be epidemiological stud­
ies to determine prevalence, clinical course, possible genetic influence, and potential bio­
logical factors based on, for example, brain imaging data.
Internet gaming disorder is a pattern of excessive and prolonged Internet gaming that re­
sults in a cluster of cognitive and behavioral symptoms, including progressive loss of control
over gaming, tolerance, and withdrawal symptoms, analogous to the symptoms of sub­
stance use disorders. As with substance-related disorders, individuals with Internet gaming
disorder continue to sit at a computer and engage in gaming activities despite neglect of
other activities. They typically devote 8-10 hours or more per day to this activity and at least
30 hours per week. If they are prevented from using a computer and returning to the game,
they become agitated and angry. They often go for long periods without food or sleep. Nor-
mal obligations, such as school or work, or family obligations are neglected. This condition is
separate from gambling disorder involving the Internet because money is not at risk.
The essential feature of Internet gaming disorder is persistent and recurrent participa­
tion in computer gaming, typically group games, for many hours. These games involve
competition between groups of players (often in different global regions, so that duration
of play is encouraged by the time-zone independence) participating in complex structured
activities that include a significant aspect of social interactions during play. Team aspects
appear to be a key motivation. Attempts to direct the individual toward schoolwork or in­
terpersonal activities are strongly resisted. Thus personal, family, or vocational pursuits
are neglected. When individuals are asked, the major reasons given for using the com­
puter are more likely to be "avoiding boredom" rather than commimicating or searching
for information.
The description of criteria related to this condition is adapted from a study in China. Un­
til the optimal criteria and threshold for diagnosis are determined empirically, conserva­
tive definitions ought to be used, such that diagnoses are considered for endorsement of
five or more of nine criteria.
Associated Features Supporting Diagnosis
No consistent personality types associated with Internet gaming disorder have been iden­
tified. Some authors describe associated diagnoses, such as depressive disorders, atten-
tion-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Individuals with compulsive Internet gaming have demonstrated brain activation in spe­
cific regions triggered by exposure to the Internet game but not limited to reward system
structures
Prevalence
The prevalence of Internet gaming disorder is unclear because of the varying question­
naires, criteria and thresholds employed, but it seems to be highest in Asian countries and
in male adolescents 12-20 years of age. There is an abundance of reports from Asian coun­
tries, especially China and South Korea, but fewer from Europe and North America, from
which prevalence estimates are highly variable. The point prevalence in adolescents (ages
15-19 years) in one Asian study using a threshold of five criteria was 8.4% for males and
4.5% for females.
R is k and Prognostic Factors
Environmental. Computer availability with Internet connection allows access to the
types of games with which Internet gaming disorder is most often associated.
Genetic and physiological. Adolescent males seem to be at greatest risk of developing
Internet gaming disorder, and it has been speculated that Asian environmental and/or ge­
netic background is another risk factor, but this remains unclear.
Functional Consequences of Internet Gaming Disorder
Internet gaming disorder may lead to school failure, job loss, or marriage failure. The com­
pulsive gaming behavior tends to crowd out normal social, scholastic, and family activities.
Students may show declining grades and eventually failure in school. Family responsibil­
ities may be neglected.
Differential Diagnosis
Excessive use of the Internet not involving playing of online games (e.g., excessive use of
social media, such as Facebook; viewing pornography online) is not considered analogous
to Internet gaming disorder, and future research on other excessive uses of the Internet
would need to follow similar guidelines as suggested herein. Excessive gambling online
may qualify for a separate diagnosis of gambling disorder.
Comorbidity
Health may be neglected due to compulsive gaming. Other diagnoses that may be associ­
ated with Internet gaming disorder include major depressive disorder, ADHD, and OCD.

Sad to see it go. The slayboxes were by far the best place to play as far as I was concerned the last few years. Pretty sure it was Slaybox 1 I was playing on the last night I was ever able to drink whiskey... whiskey shots after every death gives you quite a nice bout of alcohol poisoning on the slaybox.

:cry: :cry:


"You were good son, real good. Maybe even the best".

.....I knew this day had to come eventually. It is unfortunate that the servers don't fill up like they used to.
This community helped me through hard times, I've met lots of amazing people here. So many colourful personalities. Had a lot of fun playing with everyone here. A lot of good times, a lot of good memories...

Thank you Finger, for hosting these servers. CSn will always have a special place in my heart. No other gaming community can ever replace it. Ever. And I'm so not shedding a tear right now.
