It was something of a migration from a small free to play MMO that was going terribly sour to something more stable for me and the group of friends that I started with. We were the forum dwelling, blog hopping, "theorycrafting" vocal hardcore sector of a certain game that will not be named that simply was not run well. We were the server first types. First to hit level cap, first to finish certain content, first and only people to loot what was essentially that game's Sulfuras in Molten Core days, the guys you did not want to see coming at you in a battleground, etc. One of us came up with the idea of giving the WoW free trial a whirl and we all rolled Night Elves and ran around Teldrassial with absolutely no idea what we were doing. All the crap we had done, all the great stuff we had created, all the prestige and haters we had gathered were nowhere to be found in Azeroth. From a dry, dreary game that we were still playing just out of habit to something completely different. Something you could tell tell the designers poured their hearts into making. I've been playing ever since, but the group I started with gravitated away from each other after awhile.
