Dear god Adam, you're making 90 posts a day. Do you play the forums more than the game?I got into the game because of an argument two of my friends were having at lunch break. One of them played DDO, and one plays WoW, and they were discussing talent trees, groups and instances, and PvP. I decided to try them both out, and WoW was better than DDO for me.Right now, I am irritated at how DDO is calling itself free. Entirely free to play is one thing, presenting an incomplete game for free is another. It would definitely be less annoying if they called it an infinite free trial, instead of a free to play MMO.
Came from FFXI, because if you can't beat them......Then pretend to play the game until you discover their weakness. I still haven't.
Jam Jam Jam Jam.
Heh...brings back some good memories. I wish I had screenshots. Damn! Anyway...I was an avid player of Ragnarok Online. I loved that game, honestly. It was my first MMORPG and I love it to this day. I was basically playing that before WoW, but technically I was jamming on some Final Fantasy XI for a while. I honestly haven't the slightest idea why WoW looked awesome. I saw some screenshots, I was familiar somewhat with the Warcraft games and decided it was the coolest game ever.I hopped on the game in January 2005 (when I could upgrade my pathetic 256-ram computer with onboard graphics) and ... I ... can't remember exactly where I met my friends...but I had a small group of 3-5 friends whom I'd known for a while on an internet forum somewhere. We agreed to roll Alliance, but as I found myself wandering through Blizzard's main page, I caught the image of an Orc Warrior, who looked friggin' B.A. I inevitably would find myself on the Horde much later when I fell out of touch with those friends, where my first real character was an undead rogue. I don't know why I chose a Rogue...but the thought of playing an Undead was the coolest thing in the game at that point. My decisions on class choice are often motivated by random points of interest based on my mood. I do still play, and my Rogue has been untouched for a long time...really hasn't been touched since before Burning Crusade, but I plan to change that very soon. I play an Orc Warlock now, and before that I was raiding Ulduar as a Human Holy-specialized Priest. If I could go back and change something, I would be way more active in Guild progression and raids. I was always a little lazy back in those days and just wandered around killing people in world PvP with some friends.If I could have anything from Classic, it would be the old login screen and the music that goes along with it.
The Foxtrot comic strip features a character that plays World of Warquest. I somehow bungled up the name while typing it in the search bar and ended up in the WoW website.And the rest, as they say, is history.
Couple of my friends I played EverQuest with decided the game had its run and it was time to move on, I was a end game raider in EQ and even said yeah, after that xpac (Plans of Power) that I probably fullfilled most of the stuff I loved about EQ lore. WoW gives you alittle taste of how EQ was so massive with its open world many zones to explore, one of the things I liked the most is that raid bosses and such werent instanced, so it would become a free for all race to the boss for 2 sometimes 4 guilds to get to, and there wasnt a limit of how many peeps you could bring along (atleast while I was playing). Even though EQ is still pumping out xpacs it seriously lost all credibility right before wow launched, WoW just simply did what EQ devs wanted to do, only actually do it and better, however most dont know this but a ton of WoW devs were hardcore EQ players and it inspired alot of things in wow, the lead quest designer was the guild leader for probably the most popular guild of all time (Fires of Heaven) and its a guild in wow now to.
I got into the game because my best friend thought it was stupid :P I wanted to prove him wrong.Fast-forward a year and I've got him playing too :)
My friend from school, about... 4 years ago. We no longer play together though. =[
It was a friend of mine (he kind of counts as my relative now... kind of...)I saw him playing the game on private servers, so well i DLed the game too and played it on private servers :P (that was pre-tbc) then i deleted it since well - I had better things to do, after some time I reinstalled WoW (2.1 was it), and this time i made my own private server, I player around with it a bit, but soon, once again, i deleted it, then 2.4 come and once again i reinstalled WoW, and then well, dunno why i kind of started liking it. i played around on private servers, and well after WoLK came out I tough - screw this, I went to shop and bought battlechest, week after i bought WoLK too (they were sold out when i bought the battlechest). So technically it was myself who got me into the game, the guy just showed me the game (and well i tough its bad back then, only thing that got me into reinstalling that I saw him playing it and tough - maybe stuff is different now.)Also I've got 1 guy in WoW - a friend of mine (simply showed him myself playing on private servers, soon after he requested me to make one for him (he didn't have net back then, technical stuff) so he could play locally. Now he almost has a 80 on retail (EU), but his acc is messed up (payments locked -_-) and he can't play now. soon after same thing happened with his friend (I showed him the game, he bought it but he played for month and simply let his acc rot -_-).WoW 4eva.
well when i made my first trial account, i made like 3 lmao, i made me a warrior due to just being new to the game it seemed the right road lol. but after i finally got the game i made myself a warlock. Loved the concept of it and just loved evil twist it had lol. I think i started playing a bit before Lich king came out. Maybe a bit after though. But i loved it every step of the way.I still play but its been difficult to due to Brasil not having damn game cards so i have to find a way to get a credit card.If i could go back i think i wouldnt change anything. I've had a fun run and am looking forward to keeping that run running lol.But damn. I really wanna play again :(. If only i had a credit card or if Brasil had gam cards
My mom got me this game and when i started playing i made a human mage... Then i saw my very first quest and i finished it up and eventually leveled up... So then i was feeling so awesome that i couldn't even talk and i went to Westfall because i had a feeling like i was unstoppable. As soon as i entered BAM! some robot dude on the field killed me. So then i deleted the mage because i was angry and made a tauren druid. Leveled him up to 32 and got a cat and druid form and then my brother made a warlock... Oh it was so epic on level 6 with that imp... ohhh so i deleted a druid and i made orc warlock. He is my main now. Also i didn't even know how to repair armor till 30's of my lock... And in low levels like that i ninja'ed every green or blue or something... I would just click need because "why not it is worth some money right? so i need it" and eventually here and there i would be kicked etc etc...
I started playing WoW about when BT was introduced, My best friend and South Park: Make love not warcraft got me addicted, i currently still play it, i chose Warlock at first because i thought it would be fun, and it was
My friend got me into it around Halloween, last year.I would have started a long time ago, but the authentication code for the Battle Chest I bought wasn't deemed 'valid'. Turns out it was the EU version of the game, which is why I couldn't create an account using the US website. That's what I get for buying a copy in South Africa..Anyway, I gave up on trying to play WoW after that, because after patching the game on a slow ass internet connection, then not being able to make an account &*!@ed me off.About 12 months later I was bored & surfing the net, decided to check the Warcraft website. Boom, big flaming metal dragon appears! Cataclysm splash page.Made me want to start again. Thankfully, this time I had a fast internet connection & made sure to buy the US version.TL:DR Cataclysm & my friends got me into WoW.
Oh so long ago I'm with a friend that I don't talk to much anymore. I'm young and have a weird sense of cool so decide a blood elf hunter is the way to go. I was, by the very definition, a huntard (despite what my name says). I enjoy playing on his account so much, that the very next day, he bought me classic and TBC of WoW, giving me a month early b-day present. Stayed with my hunter, using the character random name tab and morphing it into Vathe. We huunter and rogue it up, when I decide to bring in my current greatest pal. With his extreme pally heals, and our uber dps, we were invincible. Tried 3manning RFC multiple times, and were finally happy when we do it, having reached lvl 23. Since then, the rogue (original friend) stopped playing, and the other just bgs now that wrath is out. I am a die hard.Two tales considering firsts. My very first time questing, I see voices in chat, general chat. Being so young and naive, I think they're Blizzard, trying to entertain us. Much to my surprised, they answer me back that they are real players!Final tale, my first PvP area was WSG. Being the lowest bracket, rogues were the easiest twinks. I began to believe that a "twink" was another name for a rogue. I therefore go around accusing random people of being twinks, with them qq'ing about my lack of knowledge.There's my start, life, and endless till death story of my addiciton. Sorry for the wall-o-text.
My friend told me about this game. He said it was awesome so i checked it out. They showed me how it looked like and i started playing WoW. It was on patch 2.3.0 patch i think...You have to excuse this line belowI played on a private server first because i didn't know that there was Retail.So i bought the game and started playing.
Started playing in mid 2007, actually started playing the day of a really bad breakup as a way to pass the time. I don't play currently, as I've taken a few months off to explore other games, but am most likely returning shortly.As bad as everyone knocks the pvp in the game, it's a lot more satisfying than what's out there.I wouldn't change anything about my experience, I loved my beginnings. I just wish I could go back to that time where everything is still new and wondrous.
My brother <3(Story time!)I remember I used to sit behind his computer chair and watch him play warcraft III. So when he brought WoW home, I instantly became fascinated by the ability to control one custom character all your own and play with other people! (Back then, I had no idea online gameplay existed. xD)He got a job that kept him away from the house, and asked me if I wanted to play while he was out. Sure I did! Stared a nelf hunt(Tard)er, got her to the level of 24 before I tried a druid.He eventually decided he didn't want to invest time in the game, but I wanted to keep playing.Recently he asked me for the account info so he can get into playing his (Level 42...) warrior again. After getting four characters to 80, paying for both expansions and topping up the account since vanilla days, I just laughed and offered to level him with recruit-a-friend. He changed his mind when he found out how fast leveling has become. Oh well.
