The World of Warcraft Poll

Postby Invisusira » Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:07 am

A little while back, MMO-champ did a poll to see how long people had been playing WoW. It ended up with something like 90% of people had played since Vanilla, which is pretty much a lie. So, thought I'd do a similar series of polls never mind I guess you can only do one poll, so here it is. No, Ghostcrawler, I'm not making an Alpha option just for you.

I'll say a wild guess and think that the majority of the users of the forum have started during TBC or vanilla.

Vanilla for me, 1.3 or so :)

October prior to BC's release, but hey, it's still Vanilla!

I started about 3 months after release and played continuously for four and a half years. For the past 2 years or so I have played sporadically but my account is currently deactivated. I have no idea if Pandacraft will entice me to return.

Like Worldie, I imagine most people from this forum are going to be in the Vanilla/BC area. BC for me. I thiiiink I started playing around 2.3... was February 2008 though for sure. Oh and eesh - I thought I'd been playing for 5 years or so. Looks like it was only four.

Started during the AQ world event.

That's also the problem with forum-based polls, even one on sites as big as MMO-Braindead (sorry) - the people who are passionate about it (one way or another) tend to go there, which means mostly early users. You'll probably get the same result here.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Pretty sure it was the week Sunwell came out, or very close.

I think I started in 3.2, but didn't really get into it until after Fall of the Lich King came out. Been a tank the entire time.

December 2004. Specifically the 11th.

I have a shot of my priest's gear on 5/12/05:

We killed Rag on 5/17, so I assume this is what I was wearing.

Two and a half months later, on 8/1, I have this shot of my priest's gear:

I guess one thing I definitely don't miss from the 40m raid days was splitting 5 pieces of loot to the raid.
