I Gave Up World of Warcraft

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 63 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I wasn't anywhere near addicted, but I really loved playing! The highest level I ever got to was only 36 or something because I would go a few months without playing, log on and realize I have about 5 different quests and could never remember the order of actions I was using in...

    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...
