Oh well where do I start?First of all when I started playing in the world of Warcraft, I was a big noob but got a guild invite on my 5th minute of gaming. I was so happy and I felt special. It was a promising level 25 guild with a shiny name which I loved. Just after I discovered guild chat, I started to build a friendship with 3-4 people. Back then, the guild had only like 10 active members. Five different and unique human being adventuring together and facing challenges together what made the game the best gaming experience I ever had in my life. Well this was 7 months ago. Since then, we are all professional raiders but we still raid together. We love and help each other when and wherever we can. They are like a second family for me. We are all from other countries so we didn't have the chance to meet in real life... yet!:) Also because I'm the youngest from the big five, WoW was always an amazing english teacher for me! I still need to work on my accent however but again, thank you Blizzard for making this huge, awesome game! I made really nice relationships online and I'm very very grateful for it. Thank you! I love you all!
Four an a half years ago, I packed up my stuff and moved over 9 hrs away from my family and everyone I knew to take a chance on a guy I met in Azeroth. It was probably the happiest and scariest decision I had made. About a year and a half ago, I married him. Here's how it started.After resisting the game for years (calling it a time sink and a money drain to a college student), a friend of mine finally convinced me to play it. She said she would level with me and could convince a guildie of hers to roll a new toon as well since "she had him wrapped around her finger". And after reading all the guides, I settled on a night elf hunter, which is still my main toon. Her guildie made a druid, and we started leveling together. By level 10, she had quit playing her new alt. In Redridge, my computer at the time broke, horribly. But not before the druid gave me his phone number and I gave mine in return (which at the time I never gave out my phone number to online people). The next day, I took my laptop to the geeks at BestBuy, where I was told there was no saving it, the hard drive was unreadable. I got a call, my new friend wanted to know the verdict of the computer, so I told him I needed a new one. Fortunately the old one was under warranty still, so I actually ended up with a better one. We then started playing together a lot more, texting each other, and eventually spending hours on the phone talking and enjoying each other. I remember one time, he even turned down a raid on his main toon to continue playing with me (at the time, I did not know what a big deal this was). Fast forward a year or two, I was in a continuing degree opportunity that I, essentially, hated. I already had a degree, and thought a few years of supplemental courses in a similar field would help me achieve what I wanted to do, but alas, I hit the point where I dreaded it. Fortunately, at this time, my parents let me move back in to help with expenses. But they were moving and wanting to sell the house, yet willing to let me keep it to myself for a year to finish out the college courses. I opted to move, but I didn't want to move with them. So I began looking for opportunities, and found a seasonal technician job a mere hour and a half from my friends house, but it required moving over 9 hours and a few states. I dove in head first. I remember calling him (after I told my parents I had the job), and asking "How would you like me to move in with you for your birthday?". As the day got closer and closer, we talked more and more, excitement barely contained. Except that we talked so much that we ended up with almost a $1,000 phone bill between the two of us. But it was worth it. True to my word, two days after his birthday, I moved up here. And knew at the first hug, he was the one. Took me a video game and a chance to fine my first and only love, but we found each other. We've spent hours together raiding, playing, built a house, and eventually married. All because of a game and a chance.
Well I used to do that when playing Half-Life online. We would regularly have inter-clan dinners and that was a blast. I also met my wife online, but unfortunately not in Wow. She's a different kind of geek.
Back around Firelands, I joined this guild and this guy and his cousin/friend were the worst players I've ever seen, after Firelands the guild falls apart, we separate for a little while, but stay slightly in touch, then DayZ mod comes around, and we start playing that, we have a blast with that, and now we're back playing WoW together.
When I was questing in Ghostlands for rep in the end of 2009, I met a little mage who asked me for help with some quests. Being the anti.social prick I was, I said I had to go and logged out. A few hours later he was still there so I decided to help him. We started talking and I helped him with more quests in the next few days. We became really good friends and I met his friends when they started to play. We were a good group, even if I lived more than 1000 kilometres from them. After a while, with the original guy we realized we have a thing for each other and had some pretty awkward relationship for a few months but after we stayed good friends. Then, about 9 months ago we had a really bad argument which tore us apart and I haven't seen him for a long time. Recently, I could talk to him thanks to a friend and turned out we had a big misunderstanding and once he has internet again, we will talk.

I met my Core Hound a few months ago and we've been best bros ever since.
I met a friend. He was my guild master and best friend for 2 years. and then he died from cancer.
I've met a few people from WoW. There's also a few more I'd like to meet.Several years ago, I made a friend online that I did everything with in the game. We got along great. After a while, we started to get interested in each other. They lived almost as North as you can get while still being in the same country, while I live very South. They offered to fly me to their location so I could visit them.After spending several days with them, I realized they just really weren't my type. Crap. So much for people being the same person in person as they are online. I ended up getting back together with my ex... which turned out to be a mistake.A few years later, I met someone else on WoW I was interested in, and the interest was mutual. Although they lived 13 hours away. They made a trip here, I made a couple there. But eventually, the spark left us (or me, rather) and I had to end it.Around mid-to-late last year, I found two people I was interested in on WoW, and lucky me, they both returned the interest. And while I'm a big believer in monogamy, I had to choose one and only one. Luckily, I became to feel closer to the one that lived closer to me. While 7 hours still isn't as close as I'd like, we've been able to visit each other once a month since we made our relationship official in September. And we'd both say we're the happiest we've ever been, though spending more time with each other in person certainly would be nice.So, that's my WoW dating history. If you really want to meet someone you've met online, make it happen. It may really be worth it. But then again, you may find out who they -really- are. I say, take the chance. :)
When I first started playing, I met a lot of good friends I'll never forget. Many years passed, and most of them don't play WoW anymore, but we still talk from time to time :P
played with a girl i knew for a long time. always asked me to help her with quests, dungeons, and whatnot, to the point where her characters all became better dps'er than mine. long story short, i married her last year.
I met my best friend at level 17 back in TBC , i had just started wow and i had no idea what to do ,so i was questing around, once i decided to go solo Dead mines , I saw him coming out of there saying dude i cant solo wana go duo?Thats how we met.After that we started talking about warcraft lore , but then he quit :( , but now he is back and we talk day and night about wow and life :D.
Way back when, when the Barrens was still fresh and new and not so, for lack of a better word, silly, I met a fellow Tauren Hunter. We both had Echeyakee (the white lion from the quest) tamed and I think that's what really started the friendship. We began questing and grouping up anytime we could and then joined a guild together. Found out later on in our friendship that we lived only 2 states away from each other. It was nice and cool and fun while it lasted. One evening, her sister's boyfriend logged onto her characters and told the people on her friend's list that she had died from a head-on collision with a drunk driver, she was 20. I could not attend the funeral but I did send flowers, signed Studderstomp & Echeyakee. R.I.P. Bulletbelle & Snowball<3
I met a friend from WoW while driving through Louisiana. We met on Bourbon St. and had lunch together!
When I first started playing and joined a guild, my wife had a hard time understanding the whole online social interaction and how you can become friendly with people you have never really met. A few years later when she started blogging she found out, when she started having similar interactions. Oddly enough, she has met several of her online friends and I have yet to meet any of mine.
This is great. One of my absolute favorite things about this game is the friendships you can make while playing it. There are a few people in my guild that I would love to meet in person someday. I actually met my boyfriend in WoW a few years ago, and a couple of years ago after we'd had a chance to meet, he got to move to live with me!
Creepy timing! My husband(who I also met on WoW) and myself are going to meet about half of our raid team next weekend! One has flown over from Australia and the rest of us are road tripping 6+ hours to a meeting point. It's going to be weird but awesome! Can't wait. A mini nerd convention of 7 guildies. :P
I met my husband playing WoW! After playing for about a year together we decided to meet up and about 6 months later we were married! We're still playing together a year later and I couldn't be happier. I've also made some awesome friends from all over playing this game. So glad I started playing :)
I was in need of aid from my guildmates. I studied literature at the University and one of my assignments was to find out what foreigners think of my country. I asked around in guild chat because I wanted to be original in my approach. I can say no one else used an MMO to get their input. A guild officer, Neveragain, helped me the most, giving an in-dept opinion about the politics, natural beauty and social interactions he's had with my country/countrymen. This helped me get the top grade and the respect of my professor. She was impressed by my innovative thinking. Since then I have communicated on a new level with my guildie and have been there for him as he has been there for me. This lead to a friendship (that has been mostly related to playing together since we are hundreds of kilometers apart) that brought us both laughter, loot and fond memories. We also shared life stories (real life :P ) and traded jokes on occasion.
My bff and I met in Azeroth, our hubbys are guildies and helped us ping 90 together.. Been friends ever since. Would love to be able to meet up IRL and play dominoes! lol
