Sep 16th 2009 9:05AM I think my moment, the moment perhaps... was about 3 or 4 hours into my first ever character. He's a NELF Hunter and he is still my main. I had always resisted MMO's in general, thinking them too nerdy, too time consuming for me. Then after giving a colleague grief for his WoW career, I thought it only fair that I should try this game out. At the very least so that I could back up my ribbing with personal experience.
Need I say more, I was hooked and nearly 2 years later I'm still playing. Not only that but I've tried Eve Online, Warhammer and now Champions Online. WoW was my gateway drug so to speak. Along the way though I've had countless moments when the experience has trancended mere gaming and become something else altogether.
It's been a ride. Long may it continue.
Aug 3rd 2009 10:12AM I've rolled both Horde and Alliance and whilst my first char was a Nelf Hunter (forgive me, I knew so little back then), I have since enjoyed playing on both sides of the divide. Well except Humans... can't tell you how little I enjoy those porn star dorks.
I also couldn't agree more about Death Knights. They are OP and far too numerous these days but who hasn't had that moment of bloodthirsty glee when first experiencing the power!

May 4th 2009 8:56AM I missed out on the title by three sets of bunny ears. /cry
Still, it was good fun.
May 3rd 2009 6:38AM I for one welcome the new approach Blizzard is taking to content.
As a fairly casual player, and before you jump in, the casual I refer to is due life/work/family commitments, rather than a lack of desire to play the game, I hope to finally be able to experience some of the rich content and encounters that Blizz have worked so hard to create.
It's another example of how Blizz are taking a measured approach to accessibility, trying to make their game available and enjoyable to players of all kinds. Not just those who are prepared to sacrifice all their free time to play.
It's a win if you ask me.
May 1st 2009 9:44AM I think it's fair to say that Blizzard have overreacted to this incident. They were first to make a mistake in sending the item, should they have been surprised that the recipient wanted to try it out?!
I understand that as members of the WoW community we have a responsibility to help police the game and not play in an unfair way. However, the guy sounds as though he and his guild mates (the ones who knew at least) never intended to use the item to 'cheat'. I think they were unwise to use it whilst raiding but did they really intend to clear and loot the hardest content in the game using this tool? I seriously doubt it.
I think a perma-ban is a little harsh Blizz. You should be accepting at least some of the blame here.
Mar 2nd 2009 8:15AM I recently decided to reroll on a new server. I've just come to the point where I don't feel any of my existing toons are really going to take me any further.
So it's time for new people, guilds and adventures. Oh yeah, and this time I'm playing Horde. I'm kinda tired of Alliance. Not sure my heart's really in it.
Dec 23rd 2008 6:40AM You are a sad, sad little man my friend. Move along, no one here cares for your trolling.
