I’ve always enjoyed PC games and have dabbled here and there even in adulthood. I’ve taken up WOW and like it, anyone else here play it?

Who else is a closet nerd?

I've played for several years, my two boys joined & then my two daughters, eventually all had their own account.

Wife started playing about 4 years ago, so we all played together for a while before the kids all eventually grew up and lost interest.

Lot of buzz lately about Classic servers coming soon.

Never got into it myself, but watched it consume a few friends in college when it first came out. To the point of skipping class & sleep to play.

Played in college and a little after through the expansions to the lvl 90 cap or maybe the 100.

I will say it became a borderline obsession/addiction when I was in college, partly because I had so many friends playing (across the world) and partly because the game itself is just that addicting and I was doing the 40 and then 25 man raid groups. Anyways during summer one year I was taking a single class from 7-9am, I got home from class and started playing with some friends in Australia and about the time they called it quits my American friends/raid group get online and the next thing I knew my 6:30 alarm for class was going off and I'm still sitting there pounding away at the keyboard. I quit playing for over month after that which of course cost me my spot in the raid group with 4 night a week requirement and i didn't have the desire to try and get back in.

Played casually for a few more years but once all my friends started getting busy with life it just wasn't worth it as I never had a chance of playing the end game content.

That said, as soon as classic servers were announced text started flying and I reactivated my account to see a bunch of others had as well so it's been nice to catch up and see were life has taken everyone for the last 7 or 8 years.

I did some raiding with a guild but worked a lot of o.t. (call-outs) which wasn't amenable to rigid scheduling.

My youngest was 9 - 10 and was tanking heroic dungeon(pick up groups) while I healed, we did a ton of that during Lich King. I spent the better part of 18 months away from the family during job changes but was able to stay in touch with the kids since we all played which was nice.

Wife has always been more of a solo player, she's pretty good but doesn't like the social pressure of formal groups much.

Yep. Had a neighbor in the dorm who went down that rabbit hole hard. He was an engineering major. Once WoW came out, he got hooked, and that's all he did all day long. Stopped going to class and studying, and even stopped doing stuff like laundry and showering. Failed out and didn't return the next year.

I play for a few weeks everytime a new expansion releases but I'm not a very dedicated player and have never gone raiding.

I just never got into the whole MMORPG thing, usually preferred solo style, partly due to lack of proper hardware.

I remember Dransik in the early '00s & played with some friends in high school, before it get updated from the NES Zelda style 2D look.
