For shame! FOR SHAME!
Jan 18th 2008 11:13AM I played Alliance on Venture Co - US and Horde on Ravenholdt - US respectively.
I can easily say that my experience with the Horde on Ravenholdt has been much more positive than it was with Alliance on Venture Co.
The same amount of rampant stupidity goes on in /trade on both sides, though I found both sides to be equally helpful. But as far as little kids, I seem to have missed most of them leveling as Horde.
Tseran's right. It's not about what you play, it's about your running crew.
"YOOOO-HOOOO! RUNNING CREWWWWW!"
(god, I love ATHF.)
Jan 2nd 2008 12:04PM To be fair, I started playing online games when I was 13, with Diablo I, and would probably be in the same situation a lot of these kids'd be.
I'm 22 now, so my policy is, if you can play the game and not be an asshat, you're fine by me, regardless of age.
(though I did have a comical experience with a 12 year old that used to be in a guild with me... kid re-rolled factions every week, then complained to the GMs and got his character back, until finally they decided he'd run out of wishes and he got stuck as Horde. :P)
Nov 26th 2007 1:23PM I caught the damn flying stick; now where's my Class Review?
Nov 6th 2007 3:02PM 1) Don't start.
2) Since you won't listen to the first point, roll a Tauren Druid, not an Orc Warrior; you'll like it more, and you're going to roll Horde anyway.
3) Avoid Venture Co at all costs.
4) Don't start.

I'm with #8. Instant classic.
Sep 10th 2007 10:23AM Holy crap, man... sweet layout, awesome Mac Pros (G5's or Intels?), and god, I want to steal those guitars.
My jealousy meter's hitting 11 right now.
Aug 17th 2007 4:30PM My picks :
Any damage-dealing classs - "Symphony of Destruction" by Megadeth.
Any class on healy duties - "Same Ol' Situation" by Motley Crue.
Anybody that just got ganked / wiped / etc. - "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life" - Monty Python
Aug 16th 2007 7:13PM I started playing in Dec. 2006, got one past 60, currently working on my second character which I started in early July, who's now level 48. Because everybody's either tending to their 70's or leveling their alts, I feel like it's at a nice, manageable pace now (though it can be a BITCH to get instance groups sometimes - I just put on the LFG tool and go grind until I can get a group going.)
I think that, with the new expansion, there should be a bit of a speed-up for the 1-58 leveling... like, install the game, automatically get a 25% speed boost in leveling from level 1, and it caps off at 68 before you get to Northrend.
If you're bringing in a friend or getting an invite from a friend to a new server, you should be able to catch up to them fairly quickly, otherwise it gets boring. :\
