    Life-changing in the least...

    Hello everyone. My story starts back in 2008 in Burning Crusade. I was into mild gaming at the time. My friend Eric introduced me to World of Warcraft asking me if I wanted to join his guild. I initially declined because I thought it was stupid to pay to play a game. However...

    So Long Azeroth

    After leveling every class to max level and watching my friends quit one by one over the span of eight years. I finally gave it up. I feel like I should be in a support group or something.

    Life Goes On /sigh

    At this point, I don't see myself going back to playing that game, as awesome as it was.  I've never been captivated by a game for so long the way I was held by that game though.  And I thought Diablo II was bad!  Damn you Blizzard, why must you make such wicked...

    My Addiction

    I used to play WoW all the time. I started in my last year of high school because I didn't know what to do in my free time, and strangely enough I didn't have heaps of study on my hands. My friends were playing WoW a lot at the time, and talked me into getting myself a copy...

    Lost My Guild

    The main reason I quit is because I lost my guild. We had a very very young boy in the guild, and he got kicked. The adult members were saying mean things about them, so I instantly defended him. I told them kicking him is fine if it were necessary, but he's a child and they were...
