I've met some awesome people from WoW! I met my now-husband at the end of BC and we've been together and raiding together ever since. I also met several of my RL close friends from WoW. And a group of guildmates have gone to Blizzcon together!
we have a group in our guild that we are good friends with, we always joke in the group that if one of us ever wins the lotto then that person will a fund a guild meet up :) many of us have being playing for a number of years together my husband and I have met one of the families that we play with and getting the opportunity to meet has been great :) hopefully one day we can meet the rest
Back in classic it seemed a lot easier to make friends, maybe because I didn't have any that played WoW, I met a few people who I was friends with for 2 years+. In TBC I met two people in my second raiding guild that I'm still friends with today that I used to run kara with, have never actually seen a picture of either of them but have played multiple games with them over the past 5-6 years.
I remember starting WoW around the beginning of cata - I didn't really have much happening. I leveled, and around almost a full year before MoP started, I met a good friend. We ended up roleplaying together on WrA for almost two years, now, before we parted ways, but that isn't the important part of it. While she ended up helping me find many more friends, and even more guilds with far more interesting, wonderful and helpful people that I'm extremely proud to call friends, she helped me find my lover. We're still quite together now, and I'm proud to call her my girlfriend ^_^I've ended up being able to voice-chat, and vid-chat with almost all of my friends (Who I found to be over 30 - I'm one heck of a social person), and she is no exception. If it wasn't for my very first friend on WoW, I'd have never been able to meet all these great people who've helped me cross many boundaries, one of which that I've currently been passing through being depression.I post this in her honor, and to say thank you for all the pleasant memories that we've had together, and most of all for keeping me on this game to meet so many others.
After taking a break from WoW through most of Cataclysm after playing it straight since 2006, I returned in January 2013 to play through Mist of Pandaria. I took my main to Pandaland and began to level, soon met a Druid leveling through as well that was recruiting some for her guild to even rain in the future. So I joined and we leveled through to 90, got geared up then his Mogushan Vaults. We have been through Mogushan, ToES, HoF, ToT, and SoO. Has been the best experience of my WoW life and really the best guild, which I am now an officer in, I have been a part of.
Whilst I wouldn't say I've had any blossoming relationships thanks to WoW, I would definitely say that there is nothing better than finding yourself a guild full of wacky, fun individuals who are overflowing with personality. Very funny, very entertaining, good times.
In TBC I went on dungeon with my guild mate and met there one crazy guy. It was a lot of fun when he playing as shaman ele was tanking everything. We are still good friends and keep relationship even he left the game two years ago. ;)
In cataclysm i joined a new raiding guild, and one of the members of the guild was a paladin, that i quickly became friends with. we started talking all the time, about anything, both offline and online subjects.After a few months she was going summer vacation for about 2 months, she jokingly asked if i would come and visit her doing that time, but after it got brought up again, i realised it fit well into my schedual, and told her if she was serious i would come down there for a week. So the two of us, that are from diffrent countries, ended up in a third country on vacation together, we spend all day on the beach, and all evening playing wow and watching movies.Our guild ended up disbanding, and we both got caught up with studying and the likes, and she stopped playing wow completly, we still talked, but far less.Recently we started raiding together again, in a guild that include 5 members of the old guild, and we are having a lot of fun, remembering old times and getting new experiences together.Three years after meeting, the friendship is still strong! :)I have a few other stories like this, but this is the one you get for now.
When I started playing I met a really awesome guy in the game and we became best buddies. We did Arenas and so on. I never knew where he was from but after like a year, we both realized we were from the same country. Czech republic. And to my surprise we were going to the same school :D So yeah we laughed about it and got some beer in a pub.
oh dear! I met my love of my life in wow :-) We met in game, then in real and now we are 7 years together and we are very happy :) thx blizz for this game ;)
One of the first guilds I joined, I made some friends in and we'd always chat around on vent and all. One of those friends was getting one of her irl friends to try out the starter edition a few years later. I tried helping that new player get used to the game and then later met her on skype. That was about 3 1/2 years ago though.We kept chatting and eventually I made my way out there to visit her, then a few months later she visited me. Since meeting she has been my wife for just over two years and we run our own guild together.
I had a in-game friend years ago, when i started playing the game i met him, and he would always help me out, but then a year ago he went offline and never came back, said it was hard to work and play WoW all in one day, so i guess he quit.But i have made lots of new friends in WoW, and i can't really choose which of them i like most, but every day i wonder whatever happened to my friend a year ago, i doubt he even remembers me, but we all have to move on at some point, right?
I met a friend through raiding back in Wrath. I met another friend through that friend, right around when 5.3 was released. I had struggled through alcohol problems and my family left me for a while, and this new friend and I spent some time bonding over that alcohol struggle. It was this friend who helped me to stop drinking altogether, and my family returned to me. I found out recently that the inspiration to be sober was mutual, and that she hasn't touched alcohol in as long as I have. It's nice that people can bond over mutual problems and resolutions, even never having met in person.
I had a friend in high school I actually met in-game first, and it turned out that we had a bunch of mutual friends. Pretty crazy odds.
I have a few people I like to talk to on WoW, but specifically there are two people who I've grown really close to that I met through my dad. They've become like a second family to me. I've never met either of them before, but I'm really hoping to make the trip north one day. (:A lot of people don't think you can actually build relationships or friendships with people you meet online, but how close I am with the two of them definitely proves that wrong.
I met many nice people, some I met IRL ... but most of them not playing anymore ...
Back in Wrath we had a real life group of us raiding in our own guild together. It was a lot of fun, but one day one of our friends invites two people to the guild. After playing with them for a while I became good friends with both of them. Would genuinely enjoy having conversations with them on WoW about non WoW things. I eventually exchange phone numbers with both of them and end up texting them pretty often about random stuff in our lives or other things. This goes on for a while but we stopped talking for a while when WoW really slowed down and none of us were too into the game. The talking has picked up again over the last year or two and I again really enjoy talking to them and hopefully one day meeting them. My girlfriend calls one of them my ex-boyfriend and the other my boyfriend because I currently converse with the latter much more than the former. I have made great friendships through WoW and hopefully I'll make some more.
I met my now ex boyfriend one here four years ago...and all last year everyone told me to go to Catfish to finally meet him in person. We aren't friends anymore and have no links at all. I would like to meet my best friend that lives in OR...but that isn't possible. Anyone else I have as a friend is on my Facebook. I wish we could get a lifetime paid WoW account..well your own account that would be so nice since most of the world is broke...O.o I JUST WANT TO PLAY FULL GAME AND I'M BROKE! DX
I met so many good friends in WoW but the best of all is that I met my boyfriend there...He moved from his country to live with me and we have been together for 3 years now. Maybe there is some marriage coming^^I think that without you, I would never met someone so amazing as him. Thank you for this Blizzard, I love you <3
I met many my wow friends IRL and we had many great parties.
