Apr 27th 2011 12:10PM I've been playing since about a year after release. When I first started out, I really didn't like the idea of paying a subscription, so I wouldn't buy the game. My friend got it for me and another friend for Christmas (before any expansions, so it wasn't too expensive a gift :-P).
I refused to buy game time so I played my free month and then didn't play for a while. Another friend wanted me to play with him so he got me a game card. I then played two months and stopped again. For about 2 to 3 years I played for about 2 month, and then took a break for about 4-6 months. These friends were Alliance, btw, so I was playing Alliance too.
I then played on and off, but eventually I moved in with some friends from high school while I was going to college and they were all really into WoW. The Burning Crusade had come out and we had made a guild together of only Blood Elves (We called ourselves the Blood Owls, and we all had Owl in our names, such as Owlcapone, WeirdOwl and Owlkaline.) This was the first time I became really serious about WoW. I got about 6 months of game time in a row and played constantly. My classes weren't too time consuming and I had a bunch of friends to play with all the time so I was playing pretty non-stop. By the time I moved out (I was replacing someone for only one semester) I was burned out and needed a break. This was just pre-wrath and I stopped playing until about path 3.2.
Christmas 2009 I got the Wrath expansion and started playing pretty heavily again. I went back to Allies to play with my other friends again and finally hit the level cap. This was the reason I really got back into it. While I had heard that max level was only the beginning, I finally got to see it and I got hooked. I had a constant subscription for pretty much all of the rest of Wrath until Cata with maybe a month or two off in the middle. Finally when Cata came out, I played through all the new areas, did a few of the new dungeons, but had burnt out again and I am now 3 months off of WoW. I enjoyed catching up with content after the fact, instead of waiting between content, so I'm thinking I might wait until 4.3 or so before I had back to Azeroth.
TL;DR -- I've taken some long breaks, but it really helps if you've burned out and returning after some time off can be refreshing.
Dec 26th 2010 5:27PM I think they need to keep us logged in at the character selection screen and add a chatbox because it gets sort of annoying when people go through their 10 alts checking mail.
It's not like Starcraft 2 logs you out at lobby/menu screen, so why should WoW?
