View Full Version : anyone play WoW?
any WoW players?
horde or alliance?
just curious. I'm on a WoW hiatus...may not return. Kinda waiting to see what happens with Vanguard, by Sigil games.
Nope, I don't. But I am curious. Can you play it online without a monthly fee? I thought I read that WOW requires a monthly fee.
First month is free, after that, you pay.
$15/mo, or 3 mo $14, 6 mo/$12 per.
Correct, it is a subscription based game. Its a Massive Multiplayer Online Game...its always running whether you are playing or not. That's why it costs $$...you're paying to keep dozens of high end servers both running, as well as upgrading the hardware, paying for fat connections, and of course Blizzard puts cash in their pockets.
$15 a month sounds like a lot of money at first. But, compare it to something like cable television...because in truth, 95% of WoW players play a LOT.
In my prime, I would get home at 5:15pm, login to WoW by 5:30, and log off at 10-10:30pm. EVERY weekday...except fridays I played till I couldn't play no more. Then long stints on the weekends. Easily put in 20 hours a week, 30-35hours on some weeks.
When you figure out that the cost per hour for that subscription boils down to pennies, you realize its a pretty reasonable deal.
Granted its not for everyone.
There are free mmo's out there, like Guild Wars...you buy the game, but teh server usage is free.
Runescape is a mini-MMO similar to WOW that's basically free (they charge too, to get to certain classes and into certain areas of the map) and it's fun to play, but there's a LOT of kids on there, pre-WOW and DSL-for-myself, I used to play that.
lol, yea I have heard of Runescape, and it was from pre-teenagers. One of these days I'll check that out, just for the fun of it.
Yes, I understand about paying. I contribute money to help out running servers for Battlefield. Have you ever heard of the Black Knights clan? Just curious, I play on their Battlefield 2 server every now and then, and I guess they are, or at least were, big WOW players.
I'm on Hellscream, Alliance, human rogue, as McElrath, and Mug'loth? I think it is, as Haakan, a dwarf hunter.
Hey WoW fans!
I'm an Undead Rogue on the Windrunner server.
Currently level 31. But I'm working on it! :supergrin:
Playin on the Moonrunner realm as a 44 warrior, and a 16 mage.
