Beware, it's the heroin of computer games. I know a few people that do WoW, some people that got off it, but I personally am not touching it with a 3 feet pole.

I personally would like to try it, I have a few friends that always talk about it in my third hour.

I´ve played it for a few months... and i would say don´t touch it... if you think about it, it is a boring game... everytime the same quests and you just got owned from freaks which are playing the game 24 / 7.

But If you start playing it it is like Heretik said " heroin ".

anyone wanting to try it out, download it off of torrents and play on a cracked server first, think of that, add tons of people, and you've got the game, who the people are depends from server to server, so whether paying for it or not, try out multiple servers.

My friend is addicted to WoW. Just the name itself is intising. I suggest using the trial version before you buy.

There have actualoly been divorces over people that play that game too much. People lose their freakin house over WoW.. Wtf?

Yes, I know there are that many people into it. But when you escape from reality enough to let it effect your personal life, you kinda have to figure what's more important. [/experience]

Today I found out WHY people are so "addicted" to this game. I was playing around with my warlock (by nick ArdyDaWarlok), and suddenly some midget attacked me. I got bored and tried to log out, but oh snap, it wouldn't let me! A red text started to flash on the screen, that said "Can't log out now!"

No wonder people cant stop playing it, because you dont play it, it plays you!

I was addicted to WoW for awhile but when I came to realise it's just an upscaed version of runescape I quit. I never was reay into games you have to buid up your character, I always stayed in the low numbers and sold things for money to get around.

God! When I first played I coudn't stop, I mean these itte spider things kept killing me makign me want to pay more and build up my char so I can defeat them and finish my quest.

The only time I get on now is if my friend is on, and I can't even tell if he's on anymore because he usaly signs onto msn first but I have spoken to him in almost a month now so he might be gone for good ._.

i was interested in playing it at one point, but the fact that you have to pay for it is ridiculous.

Yes, the very idea that a business would want to make money is unthinkable.

It's a minority in that it's an online PC game that not only costs money to initially buy, but then costs more money to play online. It's a lame notion you have to pay a monthly fee for its use when other online games are free.

it's far from unique, most paid for mmorpgs have a monthly fee.
also, if you see it per-hour, it's cheaper than going to a movie, so who cares?

i pay per month, one month i pay/play, if i'm bored with it the next, i just don't pay.

It works. though, considering the damn empire that blizzard has created from the hordes of people who do pay. It's not undoable, or even that difficult.
I guess I should have pointed out that it's natural for a company to want to make tons of money.

Well where I come from movies are expensive and are saved for seldom occasions. ::shrug:: I don't like the game anyways.

2 Moons is certainly not better, and it may be free but in order to make some real progress in the game without spending all day playing you have to buy stuff with real money from the item shop, and you can end up spending far more than WoW monthly fee.

WoW is so far the best online gaming experience I've come across, and believe me I've tried a lot of games.

Guild Wars may not have a monthly fee but it's primitive compared to WoW, 2 Moons is just a mindless grinding game where you just kill tons of mobs only to level up just to kill more tons of mobs.

Eve Online is cool but it requires a lot of patience and concentration, Warhammer Online shows a lot of promise but is still no where close to WoW when it comes to how well classes are balanced and looks more like WoW did in it's infancy and Age of Conan is probably the biggest disappointment that hit the MMO world in a long time.

LoTR Online is actually a WoW clone that does a decent job but if you want to play a WoW-like game, why not play WoW?

The thing is WoW redefined MMO's it brought tons of innovations that many other games still didn't pick up.

So far WoW is the undisputed champion, if you want to play an MMO it's the best choice.

As for addiction, I've been playing for 3 or 4 years, I still didn't manage to get a character to lvl 80, because I don't play too often, I purchase a month of game time once every few months and recently, with the addition of Wrath of The Lich King my laptop became to weak to run the game at a decent performance.

The point is, it depends on you, I never had a "WoW addiction" phaze, I enjoy the game from time to time and that's it, what's grate about WoW is that you can play it day by day, 24/7 or you can play it from time to time and still get results (I myself level very slow because I like engineering and fishing too much but one can level and make progress a lot faster while playing the same amount of time I do).
Order, symmetry, discipline and balance.
