    This.

    My little cousin has fallen to MMORPGs. (10)

    Got any tips for him to snap out of it? He's so addicted to MS, that he sleeps at 1:00/2:00... On his school days. He stays up on Weekends, and I know it's not healthy for him.

    Have an intervention. Seriously. I'm not kidding. MMORPGs can be as addictive as any drug. And if he's that young he probably doesn't even think he's doing anything wrong. MMORPGs eat your life. [​IMG]

    Problem is, I don't know his Account info. [​IMG]

    And I believe his friends do not play Maplestory.

    If he isn't too computer-literate then just put his computer out of commission for a while or something.
    Go to his network settings and set it to a bogus IP, that way he cant even connect to the internet.

    He uses Wireless internet.. Not really an option.

    He's caring less about school and more about Maplestory.. Stupid MMORPGs..

    You could overdose him - 14 straight hours on a quest made my cousin quit forever. Get him for a day or something, and tell him to go for the hardest thing he can do.

    you can change the ip to a static ip and type in some random number in the DNS option in network settings ( works for wireless too..)
    and as he said, he wont be able to connect to internet then.

    You could always block the site from his laptop, nothing too extreme
