It runs really well, I upgraded to 1meg ram which probably helped a lot. Apparently it doesn't run very well on the Apple laptops unless you buy the best (ie expensive) ones.

Started a new char on a RPG server. Not much different from normal servers as far as I can tell, but you have an interesting bandwith of people there. Ranging from the usual amount of dyslexic spam kiddies to people who really get into roleplaying, e.g. walking in towns instead of running, sitting around in taverns, dressing appropriately and so on.
I watched a romance between to lvl 60 elves. If it wasn't in the middle of Ironforge I wouldn't have been surprised if they were about to cyber at any moment.

Yeah, I've got a couple of characters on RP servers. It's reallyannoying having the spam kids there, because they're supposed to be banned, but enforcing the rules of RP servers isn't very important to Blizzard it seems. Been able to make up a character is so much fun, makes WoW last that little bit longer.

I'm not sure if I told you that I got me a wow. Got a level 13ish "chompeh" on bonechewer and level 6ish "chompeh" on proudmoore. I personally dont see what is so good about the game, I havent really taken to it much. For some reason I still play guildwars much more then I do WoW. One my game card runs out ill rethink my wow-ing habbits.

I think one of the greatest aspects of WoW is the interaction between peers. From alot of people i've spoken too, half have loved the game and half have hated it.

Nearly everyone of the people i know who hated the game didn't take part in the community, didn't play with anyone else and didn't know any friends to talk with. In this case i can completely understand why they disliked the experience, cause i would have too. I can't play the game unless theres members of our guild online, its just boring and depressing.

What i don't like are these people who go around preaching the game is boring and crap and unfulfilling when they haven't experienced one the greatest feature of the game.

Another thing people can't seem to understand is, your class is not a one man army, no classes are. You MUST work together to do anything remotely interesting in terms of progressing in the game, which brings us again to communication and interacting.

Over 50% of the population of WoW are retards, just leave them and get a new group, or better still get a better guild.

I am a person with a very short attention span, the longest lasting game for me before this was Counter Strike which i played for 6 years ish and the longest period of constant play being 3 months. WoW is now at 7 months and i'm not bored yet. Theres always something else to do whether it be messing around drunk in a capitol city to power leveling a quest area.

If you are the type of person who likes to play games where everyone is equal, you can play by yourself and climb a ladder to place number 1, this is not the game for you.

Bit random it's just reading these kind of threads anger me cause of all the people slating a game they haven't even 1) played, 2) 'experienced' and 3) would rather jump on the "I hate the majority! Long live the minority!" band wagon.

Character List:

Kyoushu lvl 60 rogue ~ Twilight's Hammer
Ouka lvl 41 Hunter ~ Twilight's Hammer
Kakisan lvl 37 Mage ~ Twilight's Hammer

Vyse lvl 30 Warrior ~ Emerald Dream
Rawl lvl 28 Shaman ~ Emerald Dream

Matthaus lvl 30 Paladin ~ Argent Dawn

Rakun lvl 25 Shaman ~ Deathwing

To name the lvl 25+ ones.

I did a big post in my blog about WoW. I'm on my 4th character now even though my main is only lvl 21. I love this game lots. But I'm a complete sociophobe, I keep running away from people when they talk to me. Its weird, I just get all paniky and stuff. *shrugs* Not quite sure what to do about it yet...

You could just run around with caps lock on shouting "AOL! AOL!". That should stop most people attempting to talk to you.

I managed to get under Bloodangels skin... I didnt mean to rile (word? spelling?)  you up or how we say it, to stir you.

Yea you are completely correct, I don't have much interaction between other players as I usually like to solo in other games. I just prefer it. Although I do intend to play it more as I did spend about 100 bucks on it. The item that gets me, morrowind feels very empty like you are the only person there but I love the games. WoW feels like Morrowind in Warcraft but does not contain the same aspects. Also I run the game at like 20 fps generally... so a bit laggy in some places. Probably should upgrade.

Well, I'd say Eve Online got a better community-oriented gaming experience. I've only lightly grazed upon the game, and never played WoW, but from what I've understood, WoW is a very static world. You can't, say, build a castle and forge yourself an empire in WoW, am I correct? In Eve, while maybe 90% of the players stay within the boundaries of the Empire (or whatever it was called), the non-pvp areas, there are a few adventurous players who wander beyond it. Ganging up in player-created corporations and alliances, they lay claim to star systems, build space stations, and wage war with each other over resources, carving out their own empires and governing their own laws. That's a very nice idea, and as such, Eve is on the top of my list, should I play an existing MMORPG.

And Eve is no where near as open as Second Life, but i didn't think this was the point of the conversation.

Don't play anything by SOE, they just agreed to put advertisements ingame.
