My name is Marintha, and I live in the US. I have two friends who live in Aus/NZ and I must have them. We must bring them together that they may have Gnomely-Sized Worgen babies. =D
I'm fine with helping old WoW buddies find each other, but a Warcraft dating game reality show? No thank you.
I've had the opportunity to meet a couple players outside WoW. Long lasting friendships have been forged several times for me, both in WoW and in games I've played before WoW was released. Love meeting new people. :)
Around 2 years ago I was playing on Khadgar, Alliance side, usually I have a rather hard time making friends and noticed there was another person who didn't talk much in guild chat, I asked her if she wanted to run heroics with me and she said yes, after that day we played around once a week together and did heroics/LFR/whatever the other needed. After around 2 months of this we began slowly playing more and more together until we spent almost all day every day together, she came to be my best friend, she met my cousin who also plays and they began dating (introduced him to 2 of my female friends in game and he begun dating both of them... never again will I introduce him to a female friend). they've since broken up and she was terrified of breaking up with him because she thought I wouldn't talk to her anymore. How wrong she was ;) we're still just as strong as our days in late Cata until their break up! ILY Girl. ;)
I started the game many years ago when my RL friend got me started. I got good at the game and started looking for a guild I eventually found a guild that would be my home for a long time. We all got along like a family brothers and sisters and the like. The man that I would eventually call my Guild Master after the old one retired became my closest friend. We did everthing togather and made the guild in to a top raiding guild I became second in command under him. He is a true friend and he along with the help of the guild gathered all the mats to make the Sandstone Drake. He gave it to me for my outstand work with the guild Mentoring and help everyone with everything. It was the most moving thing anyone every had done for me in the game. We still chat throu Facebook and Skype he is like a brother to me I hope to one day vist him.
I met one of my best friends on WoW who I originally thought hated me but we started to bond over transmogging when he asked what hammer looked best on his female warrior. We still talk all the time today even though I don't play as much and are planning to meet up at some time in the future so that we can drink and giggle like smitten schoolgirls.I met one of my other besties in Goldshire when he was trolling. He was this level one human or gnome, can't remember, and he seemed flabbergasted when my own trolling could match up to his skill level. We talk almost everyday and share literally everything. We've talked about moving in together with another mutual friend of ours and his gf, so hopefully once I graduate, that can happen! :D TLDR WoW has given me great friends.
I met my husband in wow. I was his raid leader :) He helped me out of an abusive relationship and we've been married just about 3 years now, with a cute level 2 human.
of the 7 or so people that i have met in person after first meeting on warcraft... i now talk to none of them. i made some interesting life choices back in BC
It was 5 years ago. I met good friend while farmiing gold. One paladin asked me for help doing some quests. Then: skype talking, adress exchange and meeting at the neares city. Now we are really good friends, i wish all ppl will met their mind-brothers all over the world!
Now that I think about it, I don't think that I've ever met anyone IRL that I've met in wow. Back before I took a break from the game (and ended a relationship) I think I would have definitely met some people. There was a guildie who was in the Army and stationed at a base maybe 3 or 4 hours away from me. My best friend met her fiancé in wow. They were in the same guild and a mutual friend of theirs wanted to form a 3v3 arena team. Their friend ended up quitting the game and they kept playing without him and that's how they eventually got really close. It's a really cute story if I were to get into details. But, I'll skip on that...
I already had the chance to meet some people from my guild at Gamescom and I'm going to meet more, its just so exciting. Next person to meet in real life is someone i know for now close to 6 years! :3
Went out for drinks with a warrior in my core. We live too far away from each other, so we don;t hang out often. But we do talk offline, play a lot more often together and occasionally hang out.
Won lots of friends from my city ^^My CO-GM is the coolest guy =) , we became buddies during LK
This could be very interesting.
Well it was several years ago wen i met a nice dude we became friends and later he had problems in his country and i helped him to come to mine and start a new job , now we are still playing wow and drinking beer on occasions .
met a person whom was pretty cool, then he took ashes of al'ar for himself.
Applied...hope I don't regret this.Met myself a wonderful artist of a girl on Silverhand three years ago. I really hope we'll get to see each other five feet apart, rather than 5000 miles through a computer screen. Oh, the #$%^ we've been through...
Even though my guild stopped raiding and most people stopped logging in months ago, we still keep in touch pretty well. In fact, at the end of this month, we're having a big get together with people coming in from at least 2 different states to hang out for 4 days of fun, food, and reactivations!
Give me my mount! DO IT DO IT DO IT!Oh and a great friendship I had in game is with someone who was battling cancer (they won), and I leveled up a starter set of pets for them get them into pet battles while they did chemo.
