As a person that prefers to stay inside as opposed to going out, WoW has been a great place for me to fit in and find others who enjoy playing the same game as me.I have been playing WoW since vanilla, and have met more friends than I can count. I met my current boyfriend about 4 years ago, from a mutual friend. We ended up moving to different servers, and not raiding with one another until crossrealm raiding came out, and our mutual friend invited us to do some achievements together. Thats when we hit it off. We have now been formally dating for about 2 years, and we met in person 2 summers ago. We do everything together now, and its great! We hang out with each other irl more than we probably hang out with our other friends lol. We're complete dorks, but its great. But had it never been for having friends in WoW to connect us, we wouldve never met, im certain.I have also met nearly all of my guildies in person as well. We went to Blizzcon together, as well as there has been some guildies of mine that have visited me for my birthday, or other special occaisions as well!Even though I prefer to stay indoors, I still keep a great balance of making sure to hang out with my friends in real life as well as in game. Actually, most of my friends play WoW or other games so it makes it all the more easier!My cousin met a girl in a RBG a few years ago, and they hit it off. He went off to visit her in Alaska and they ended up getting married a couple years later :] They are now expecting their first born!Anything can happen, MTV catfish is a great show, but if you really want to meet the person behind the screen, you have to make your goal to go beyond your comfort zone and see whats there for you. You might just be surprised! :]]]
This sounds like a really awesome idea. As always, I find it radical to see events like these, for more than a few reasons. The giveaways, plus the gathering of people with their comments. I adore reading through them to see each individual's story. :)One of my good friends was actually met through another. I was switching servers because I had been offered a DPS spot to possibly get my Kor'kron wolf from Siege of Orgrammar, and so that was my main objective. (I still haven't gotten it yet, but I'm making my way up there!) Along the way when I started to level up a DK, just before I transfered, one of the guildies I had encountered began immediately setting the toon up with BoAs. He gave me almsot 3k in gold! I was extremely baffled, I didn't understand why he wanted to help such a stranger as I! He had explained and understanding of getting started on a new realm (This was before account server BoAs). After a couple of weeks of chatting and leveling together, we started to click as friends and my interest in my original goal didn't seem as important, rather.. running with him, and the guild was more of my priority! He's been there as a great friend who will listen, and offer advice when you seem blue, and he's exceedingly great at his class, as well! Now we help each other out, whenever we can. He even helped me with the beginnings of my own guild! I'm very lucky to have met him, and I treasure his friendship dearly.
I had been intermittently chatting with another player for around a month when I mentioned the city where I grew up. As it turns out, we had both attended the same high school. Small world.
I never had a major relationship with anyone on WoW, I've had some friends that I met in guilds, that I enjoyed playing with, and after they transferred servers we're still RealID friends and occasionally play together, but I mostly play with guildies that I talk to when they're online. It works for me, and I like it.
I've found many good friends in the past years from WoW including a druid from norway , we almost speak everyday about the wonders of life and other interesting things.
Well i started playing WoW with a friend, we met four other guys in-game that were of our state, after sometime we played together we found a guild and we are friends since that day.
I've met some very cool people through WoW.. Some as far to give Facebook and/or cell number to to contact to log on and run together in game (pre-REAL ID).. It would be really cool to meet them in real life, however Facebook has closed any gap that was there with distance of being on-line and in respective home states. I've often discussed with old guildees (before they went astray or stopped playing) about how cool it would be to get together in a room and play together so we could just chat in real time, and not have to type. But also make a weekend of it and do things together NOT on-line..
My best friend Josh got me started with WoW!
If this were 7 or 8 years ago I'd be all over it! I actually met my husband on Warcraft. We have been married 5 years this June. He was in a guild with my IRL best friend. She finally let him put a ZF run together and we got to meet. Who knew a troll hunter and an undead rogue could hit it off so easily? After two years of sweet psts, chatting on Vent, millions of texts, up all night phone calls, and a few visits back and forth he moved across the country to be with me. He and I have never had a deeper relationship with anyone else.
I met a couple people that work at my company through wow. We still keep in touch even though they moved to another state.
I still have a close friend that I talk to as often as possible who lives the entirety of the US away from me, the Canadian, and her the southern States gal. I have spent more time talking to her than some of the people I went to high school with.
Is there an option to meet multiple people? -Hangs out with all her wow buddies!-
I met my boyfriend Dan on wow :D we met up a couple times then after awhile I just moved to california to live with him. Been together almost 2 years now.
I've met a lot of people over the years of playing WOW and though most of the were just using me to help get them gold, level up, and get items. Most of the people I played with have left the game even my real life friends have stopped playing, but I keep on going WOW forever :) Most days now it's just me and my brother but who knows what's just beyond the horizon.
Me and my (now X, still great friend) met on wow back in 07 played together forever started off in a guild randomly together and played everyday until we added each other on skype, out wow time started going to skype time or both, nights would range from going to bed at 2 AM to 8 AM just sitting and talking all night over skype and killing stuff in wow.My, GM is also getting married and the guilds vets are meeting at the wedding to have a good time and actually drink together rather then drinking alone/together on raid nights :D good times and good friends keep me comming back to wow.
I've met some really nice people in my past guilds. After months of playing and raiding together it turned out one of them lives in a city nearby. It was really awesome to meet him IRL. And we're also in contact with other guildies, even though they don't play anymore, but meeting with them IRL is not an option, as they're living far far away.
nice friends i got there in this game, we do a lot of pvp and gank alliance at goldshire. its cool to have buddies
I'm almost sad to say that I met most of my friends through WoW. Even got a girlfriend that I met through WoW eventually. Traveled across the globe to go see her. Stayed for 3 months with friends I met WoW as well.Basically WoW has (suprisingly enough) been the place where I met and talked to the most people from all over the world!
When WoW 1st came out the very first day of the game i created my character on Azgalor and was running around SW exploring and ran into a warrior name Alfanzo. Guy was looking for a black smith. Shortly after i showed him where to go we were in Goldshire picking up quests. Long story short, it turned out that the guy lived in the same city as i was, a neighborhood away, and we have been very close friends ever since outside of the game, infarct were doing out for some sushi today ~( =
IRL friends with some folks that I met because of WoW, and actually play wow because an IRL friend had a friend that plays, and he talked me into making the switch from Diablo2 to WoW. We didn't know one another other than that though. Now we are great friends. =)
