Dec 6th 2011 11:56AM My account has recently been banned and before that, hacked with the help of third party programs. I suspect that the hacker took everything of value.
I have sent information about this to Blizzard.
Will they be able to help me restoring my account to it's former state, or will I have to start over?
Nov 30th 2011 10:00AM Now that we have such a topic, I began to wonder.
When I ponder this question, I stop doing that. I am afraid to find out the truth. You see, I am a person that easily get sucked into something. I've played this game on and off for a little more then five years. The core group of IRL friends that started playing together are either long gone, or have switched to new servers.
I am nostalgic. If that's just a fine word for not wanting to say goodbye, I can't find out either. I have these characters that Iv'e played with for a while, especially a hunter that's been with me since the start.
I joined a friendly leveling/raiding guild in BC, that fell apart at the start of Wrath. I played alone for a while, but eventually found a new one, just before Cataclysm. It's a good group of people and I enjoy playiing with them.
Azeroth, people, server community or lack of stuff to do IRL. They are all just excuses. I am nostalgic, I can't say goodbye.
But the game is still fun, I tell myself. Whether that is a white lie or not, I do not know.

Now that I read my omment again, I should clarify:
By no means was my intention to sound rude, at all. I still haven't fully understood that sarcasm and quick-witted jokes isn't always interpreted as it's meant to be in written texts.
Oct 4th 2011 11:29AM Grom ventured into Ashenvale to cut down the forest for Thrall's settlements, unbeknownst of the Night Elves, hiding in the threes. They had to wait for a Demi-God to have a chance. BAH!
Grom stopped at nothing to fulfill his mission, and swore to kill his enemies. With him as the Horde's leader, we would've conquered the Humans already, and they would be our slaves.
In fact, I'll take my priest to resurrect him any day now, I just have to find the dam body!
Yes, I sympathise with the Horde's ideals, problem?

Yes, you make a very good point, but if we go down that road, we would have to dress up as 'locks.
Can you live with that?
Jul 5th 2011 3:54AM I wasn't really "abandoned", but here it is, anyway.
I started in August 2006, on Eonar-EU, where three of my friends played. We had a few dungeon runs, but nothing more. We actually played individually. Maybe they played with eachother, and I was left out, I really don't know. And that's how it went on for a few years, until mid Wrath, when one of them quit, he grew tired of Wow.
The other friends migrated to new servers, and I think that one of them quit shortly afterwards. The last friend is still on, but he's nowwhere near as excited as I am.
Oh, yes, I am bound by this curse "nostalgia", have you heard of it? It freaks me out.
Jun 10th 2011 12:11PM Also, since he was my first toon when I started way back in Aug -06, he will always be considered my main, even though I haven't played him much in Cata yet.
Heroic runs or higher levels means nothing! It's the memories that makes the main, you hear me?! Memories!
Jun 10th 2011 12:06PM I started playing my druid in Cata, to level my gathering professions. Cat form was okay, but it was when I respecced to Boomkin I found my true call. To burst and see those numbers, but still be able to CC and turn a battle around with CR is just lovely.
My hunter will always have a place in my heart though.
May 23rd 2011 9:48AM I think there are many factors. The guild that I'm currently in has a positive attitude, which helps alot.
But as another poster said, it has (sadly) to be a minor form of addiction. I don't have that much to do, other than going to the gym, studying and playing wow. My grades are fine, and I live (mostly) a healthy life.
I currently have 7 characters on Eonar (EU). I've been there on and off, with breaks, since August 2006. I started out with friends, but one migrated, another left, and the last one I'm no longer sure about. I am nostalgic, so I can't let go.
I have faith in Blizzard, and I think Cataclysm is great, apart from the VERY linear quest progression. I will probably stick around until Blizzard decides to cancel the franchise. And even then, I will look back with a tear in my eye, and reminiscence the runs in the two runs in RFC and Mara I had with my IRL friends. And the two guilds that I had so much fun in, Guild of Heavy Metal, and The Lazy Tribe. I've never had as much fun as I had in TBC.
"It's just a game" afterall, right?
