Poznyak said that the expectation is that the classification of "gaming disorder" means health professionals and systems will be more "alerted to the existence of this condition" while boosting the possibility that "people who suffer from these conditions can get appropriate help".
Ukie, the Association for UK Interactive Entertainment, created a "gaming disorder" FAQ about the proposed inclusion, including details about what the ICD-11 list is, their concerns for classifying "gaming disorder" alongside other disorders such as alcohol, drugs and gambling, and an Open Debate paper by 36 global mental health experts, social scientists and academic scholars opposing the inclusion due to lack of scientific study. "Increased frequency and intensity" of gaming has been cited as a predominant attribute of the disorder.
The agency described the addiction as a "pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour" that becomes so extensive it "takes precedence over other life interests".

It is not yet clear exactly when treatment for the mental health condition will be available on the NHS.
The classification was also lambasted on social media, with users linking the concern about gaming addiction more to moral panic than solid evidence.

"Even when the negative consequences occur, this behavior continues or escalates".
