It was awesome to meet everyone there, I know I missed saying more than 'Hi!' to half the people but there were so many there!

Looking forwards to it again next year hopefully, the only bad part was not getting to spend more time talking to everyone and hanging out with you all.

Reporting in from LA...

I got group pictures (and some individual ones)! Go me.

We're still in LA until Sunday so no pictures till I get back.

As for you people who showed up to the meetup but barely post... it makes it frigging HARD to get to know you! Post more!


What are you trying to say?

Just out of curiosity, when you guys met in person, do you call each other by your wow names, or by IRL names? And if the former, does it feel weird at all?

The few times I've met with people met through internets we alternated nicks and names, felt like a funny mix.

When I met up with my guildies in person for the first time ever we mixed names/online names. Didn't seem odd, but then again I have known them for a few years now.

I tend to stick with whatever name I knew the person as first... which is usually their internet names.

Pictars!

As promised. Some photos.

I'm sure this is the one that everyone is interested in... from the Maintankadin meetup:

Image

There are some people I don't think I spoke to, so off the top of my head, let's see if I get this right.

Back row (left to right): Pfife, Meloree, Firas, Arianne, Invis, PsiVen, Sahiel
Front row (left to right): Ack, Rhidach, Anafielle, mew, Theck, myself, PsiVen's wife.

During Blizzcon, about the only people I ran into again were Ari, Ack, Theck and Mel and then Vanifae a few times. So the shots I took are pretty selective of whomever I happened to be hanging out with. Which most ended up being during the Curse after party at the Hilton.

Random draenei chick. Very impressive.

Curse after party with Theck and Invis.
Image

Vanifae got us into the Curse party.

Vanifae

Theck literally knew the songs to every single rap song...
Image

Monk!
Image

Last year's costume winner who posts on here occasionally (think her posting name is Nadina?). This year dressed as a holy paladin in T12.

Anyway, that's a few random shots!

What went through my head while looking at those pictures:

1) Holy cow that is NOT what I expected theck to look like.

2) I was thrown off completely by your name tag. My thought process was literally "Rachelle YOUNG? Wait, wtf? Shouldn't it be Rachelle Invisusira? I thought they got married? ...Oh wait I'm retarded."

3) If that a real person? If so, I would totally hit that. Tail and all.

4) Is Vanifae hiding behind the huge black dude?

I was drunk the whole time.

Mission success.

You've been here long enough to know that Vanifae doesn't go anywhere without her burly bodyguard.
