My husband and I met through WoW. We met during brewfest 2008, he came in to help my friends and I down Coren Direbrew. Once we were done, we went and did our daily's together on the Isle of Quel Danas. And that is where we fell in love. Our wedding cake was themed after the Island, with the elfish trees and a beach scene. It looked beautiful! I never would have imagined that I would have met the love of my life, from a playing an MMORPG. But we both love video games and we still play WoW and other games together. This past November we went to our first Bilzzcon and met some great people there. It was so nice meeting all these people who share a love/addiction to the same game that we love too.
Having met some friends way back in the B.C. days helped me through some tough times. I was searching for a guild online in the forums of battle.net (or whatever it was then) and logged on with the names of a couple guilds in mind. As I logged in, standing there by the mailbox at Garadar, Nagrand was a member (and officer) of the guild I wanted to join! I whispered to him, joined the guild and we have been friends ever since. This chance encounter led to meeting several other great friends (one who even lived very close to me IRL, coincidentally!). The tough times I mentioned happened when I developed a heart defect... My online friends called me regularly to cheer me up and the one who lived close-by even took me to the VA hospital for some of my appointments. Without WoW and that online community I would have been very isolated and things could have turned out very differently as I had just moved to a new city about 5 states away from any family or friends. I am grateful for my WoW friends.
I met my soon to be wife on Warcraft and I can't be happier! We played in WoW with each other for a good while till the day we both talked and wanted to take things further, so I made the ultimate decision and moved in with her, now... we play daily together and have a great time doing so.Thank you WoW for letting me be with the love of my life! :D
back when i started play i joined a lvling guild. they happened to dabble in raiding a little. after so long the raiding shut down and our guild master offered use a spot in a different guild that raided. some of use joined others had gone there own way. after so long one of my buddys from the lvling guild and i started to talk more. and we figured out that we lived under an hr drive away from one another. so we started to hang out and he is still a good friend to this day even though he dose not play anymore.
I had a good friendship that lasted about 3 years until I found out that he wasn't a skinny white kid but a big mexican guy.
I met a random dude on WoW and apperaently we lived 10 minutes from eachother and went to same shcool :D
I wont take part in any contest supported by a company that runined the music.. even if you were given the spectral tiger.... and tyrael's hilt. Never
I actually met my first boyfriend in wow.I had been playing for maybe 2 years and i had bounced from guild to guild but i got to one called the good the bad and the ugly in mid-wrath that really stuck, it felt good. I raided with a shaman named Kurntbek near constantly and she was cool for the most part. We both started working our way up the ranks of the guild. Eventually we got joint control of a raid team(one in charge of tanks and dps, one in charge of heals) and then she stole all the gold from the Gbank then transferred servers. We were all pretty messed up for a while, but i needed to get someone to help with raid leading. i started interviewing people in guild and one guy who didnt play much stepped up and said he would like to try. I interviewed him on vent and he was cool and funny. I really enjoyed talking to him. I gave him the position and we got to work.eventually we had a raid night where both of us would be missing and so i casually inquired where he would be, and he said the U of I marching band competition, and i was like "So am I! What class are you guys in?" "6A." Oh my god so am I! What school do you go to?"""we met up on the U of I day and we hit it off all over again. We dated for nearly 2 years before he had to leave for college. I'd like to think we might meet again one day.
2 years ago a couple of friends I had been friends with in WoW for a few years bought me a plane ticket out to Las Vegas where they lived for my birthday and I stayed with them. It was a great experience. It was my first time out there and they took me around showing me the sites and stuff and we hung out the entire week I was out there. Definitely an experience I'll always remember.
Way back in the beginning of WoW - the good ol' days of 2004-5, I joined up with a guild on my server because...well....that particular guild had a bad rep for all the right reasons. (People were "disgustingly friendly" and there was a persistent rumour flying around that the GM was gay, they were terrible at PvP and never organised anything...So I figured I'd join and see if I could help out.)Over the years, I came to find out that many of the rumours were true - the GM was a gay male from California, but friendly as all get-out and undeserving of a lot of the criticism he got from people on the server. He'd break his own back to help one of his guildmates out. And it was unfortunately also true that the guild was, at the time, terrible at organising anything. I bumped heads with the wonderful GM and we started planning things: I designed a website for him, we started a guild forum, made use of the calendar and got people involved. Pretty soon we were doing well in PvP and changing the server's opinion of the guild...and the bad-mouthing of the GM began to wane a bit.Eventually, the GM and I became good friends: he introduced me to his boyfriend, I'd sent them drawings for their tattoos they were planning on getting, we emailed back and forth...I genuinely cared for his well-being and had no idea what he looked like, sounded like or any of that. People are people, whether you know them as orcs or Facebook contacts - everyone is deserving of a little friendship.This story doesn't exactly have a great end...I'll never get to meet him. Around 2008, he started dropping back from his duties on WoW...he got pretty sick and said he was feeling "under the weather", later found out he had myocardial ischemia (which I'm still not clear about everything - I lost contact with his significant other as well, who had stopped playing WoW because of work the previous year - neither of them were on Facebook). Then he just stopped logging on. Another guild member who lived in the same town reported that he'd died of a heart attack and linked his obituary on the guild forum for us a few weeks later.The guild didn't really last very long after that, and it was a pretty sad time for everyone around. We tried to keep things going, but I'd just started my third "tour of duty" at university and didn't have the time to commit to running a huge guild, and the other seconds didn't really hold up their end either...So it just fell apart. The guild was disbanded after a few months and all that's left are memories.Strangely enough, I made friends with another GM in much the same way...but we didn't get as close, even though I still consider him a friend we don't talk as often and he doesn't play WoW any more either. That guild on another old server has also been kind of abandoned and I ended up leaving recently when the GM transferred guild leadership under mysterious circumstances to another player I didn't really like much.On a different note, there are many friends I've made in *real life* who play World of Warcraft - most notably my boyfriend + love of my life. =) I'm quite happy that we can annihilate things together in the digital world.
I met my boyfriend in WoW in January 2010. We met irl after several months of talking for hours a day on Skype, MSN, AIM, Facebook, texting, and phone calls. It'll be four years this April :) We've made so many amazing friendships through this game. Our guild is our family. The only downside is that we all live so far apart. Despite that, I am happy we've gotten to meet up with so many guildies throughout the years.
I met the guy I thought I would live with forever. Unfortunately familial issues have torn us apart.
I met my 2v2 partner from season 7ish awhile back, I lived in Texas and he came from New York to just kick it for a bit. IRON SKYREAVER!
About 7 years ago, I was working at a plastics manufacturer. A new guy started there and we were talking one day on break. We found out that we both played World of Warcraft. We exchanged information, and this guy came and started a character on the server I play on. We started leveling toons together and really getting to know each other via this awesome online community that exists in WoW. We found that we had a lot of similar interests in real life while playing this MMO. We started hanging out outside of the game as well as inside the game. Seven years of friendship started via this amazing game, and he and I now consider ourselves best friends, and continue to play the latest raid content, quest lines, and even run our own guild together.
Me and my GF at the time formed a guild on Ursin and we met a couple that was almost living replicas of ourselves. It was awesome. Eventually we traded facebook names and we have been friends ever since.
One day, back in WotLK, I joined a pug for Vault of Archavon, and having Ventrilo was a requirement.I was 9 years old back then, so my voice was girly, and when I talked on Ventrilo they said "Omg are you a girl?" and I just responded "No, I'm a boy, but I'm 9 so my voice hasn't changed" and they said "Oh, another kid, we have a girl who's 11 years old over here", "Oh, really? Who?", "Vinessa"...So I added her, talked with her a lot, and made a strong friendship that lasts until today...We have done a lot of things together, like raiding, collecting mounts, pets and achievements, doing old content, and many more things...Sadly, she doesn't play anymore, but we still talk everyday on Facebook.Can't wait for her return to the game.
I've been playing WoW for 8 years and I've met a ton of bloody awesome people. :3 And now, whenever I get the money, I'm gonna fly over to America and meet those who still play and I keep talking too. ^^ WoW Friendship FTW. As well as School friends, I found out like, 10 of these in my grade play WoW now we all do Flex raids together. :D
Me and my best friend Kev met back in 2008 during wrath of the Lich King. I hated him at first because he was a major troll but then I realized that his trolling made me laugh. We talk in vent every day about wow and other things. He helps me out with things when I need it and I help him back. We've changed servers and guilds many times but we still remained friends. I have many fond memories of exploiting glitches and other type things with him that I'm not going to talk about as at risk of being banned from wow.
I met my husband through World of Warcraft. We met eight years ago through my family's guild. He was the new tank and I was a lowly dps. I would yell at him when he would be late to raids. We met face to face for the first time in 2012. We were engaged that December and married in March of 2013. We will be celebrating our first anniversary this year. We also have a daughter that was born in November. It never would have happened without World of Warcraft.
When WotLK was live, I was in a guild with some very cool people. We were doing raids on a regular basis, and after about 3 weeks of raiding together, we found out that the majority of us were from the same country spread out in 3 cities.We had some meetings on a regular basis. Two or even three times a week those who were from the same city and at least ine per month all of us (those from the same country).Riding and doing other things in WoW with people you know pretty well it's a lot of fun. I recommend it to everyone. :)That's just my little storry :)
