My character is a human warrior named Rubherard and located in the Doomhammer Realm. I'd love to get my ass kicked by a fellow firespinner.

Posted:Everyone on my floor at Uni has been going nuts over that game, I'm too scared to play it in case I get addicted, one guy hasnt slept or eaten for 2 days cos he is stuck on an online battle

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind

Give a man a fish and he'll eat 4 a day hit a man with a brick and you can have all his fish and his wife

Posted:Im a 26 Night Elf Rogue on Eonar server. Got it the day it came out and played in the open beta testing, however, I dont play too often. I was addicted to EverQuest for years and finally quit around the time this came out.

This stuff IS really addictive, be careful with it. Sure, its just a game but some people get to the point of playing 16+ hours/day and necglect more important things. Since Ive been into the online gaming community for a long time, Ive heard many horror stories. There was a guy in China or somewhere that played a game for 72 hours straight in an internet cafe and dropped dead due to sleep deprivation and not eating. A mother who put her baby in a closet while she went on an 8 hour raid. Some people have even killed themselves when things went wrong in their game life.

Of course, I dont think any of you will do such things but when people say its addictive, no one really thinks about how addictive it truly is.


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:i've always refused to let my self play the game on the grounds its to good a game smile



infact has anyone ever read the red dwarf book BetterThanLife where people start playing a game that plugs into your brain called BTL and once there in they never want to leave. but in the real world there physical bodys are witheing away and there liveing in a gutter someware. that always reminds me alot of wow



had a friend at uni who we worked out had spent just under 1/2 of his wakeing hours for a year playing it



another friend ended up blowing his life saveings 30,000 so he wouldn't have to work for a year and could just play wow all the time. hes quit now after he realised he had no life no money and his health was degradeing fast. you'll be glad to know hes on the road to recovery smile



even heard about a house compleately filled with people who had been chucked out there old houses because they did nothing but play WOW my friend discriped it as world of warcraft crack den they all had there computers in the liveing room and sat in there all day playing wow



i figure im gona wait till im old physicaly decrpid and retired before i let my self play games like wow plus given how much games have come on in 10 years think how good the'll be in 50 or 60 years biggrin

Read both the book and seen the TV episode that centers around BTL. The books interpretation is much darker and grim though smile

I never played WoW but I did play its closest counterpart: Guild Wars. While comparing them both in terms of gameplay is like comparing apples and oranges, it can still have the potential to absorb you and eat into facets of your life.

I haven't touched Guild Wars in about 7-8 months after playing it for close to two years and purchasing all three chapters. In fact, I hardly play games at all now. Nowadays I tend to play things that can be over quite quickly or get into quite quickly such as old console games and arcade ROMS smile

Aaah...nostalgia *fires up the original TMNT arcade game*

Posted:i downloaded the ten day free trial (twice) and for those twenty days no one saw me, i was going to buy a subscription but opted not to as to adverse affects it would have had on my health, now i just play on my friends account when he's not (which i must add is not often)

night elf druid, lvl 18

dwarf hunter lvl 15

recently i've been playing this because it's free and the only game my pc can handle at the moment, but it doesn't match up to WoW ubbrollsmile
