Seizure Warning – Please Read Prior to Playing
A very small percentage of individuals may experience seizure or momentary loss of consciousness when exposed to certain light patterns, flashing lights, or flashing images. Children and teenagers are more susceptible to seizures than adults, but even those with no history of seizure or epilepsy could experience them while playing or watching video games.
Symptoms of seizures include: lightheadedness, altered vision, jerking or shaking of the extremities, loss of awareness, confusion, twitching, or full convulsions. Convulsions can lead to other injuries by causing an individual to fall off of a chair and/or strike objects nearby. If you or anyone in your family has an epileptic condition or a history of seizures, consult your physician prior to playing this game – you could have an undiagnosed condition.
If you experience any of the aforementioned symptoms of a seizure while playing, STOP PLAYING AND CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY. Parents should ensure their children are not experiencing symptoms. In order to reduce the risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures, you should play ArenaNet games in a well-lit room while you are alert and awake. Avoid poorly lit rooms and playing when fatigued.
