    After being left out of some interesting conversations while playing some boardgames at the Hiro's Comic Shop (more along the lines "He won't know what we're talking about") I decided to see is World of WarCraft was any good.

    *one canceled layaway later*
    *2 TFs bought along the way*

    Took forever to install...
    5 FREAKING updates?!? I got the latest version of the game and WTF?
    Had to transfer the game to the Second HD on the comp JUST to have room for the updates...

    And yet, first thing I saw when I logged in my Dwarf Warrior was a player biching about some megalag... damn his computer must suck since I noticed NOTHING!

    :drunk 

    Already hit Lvl 8 and loving every moment.

    I currently have a 10-day trail and it was pretty cool. Don't think I'm gonna stay on though.

    Never got into the story. I like the superhero setting of CoH, and it's the only MMORPG I've liked to date.

    I have a Cloak and a beard.

    WoW is a vaccuum. Despite how much you may initially think you dislike it, it will claim you in the end.

    Mark me down as part of the Capes > Beards crowd too.

    Glad to hear you're liking it though.

    Sorry, not going to happen, Skor old chum.

    Loot is a bad, bad, bad hook. I want to play a game, not obsess over not having "Epic lewt", it's why DAoC couldn't keep me, and it's why I quit playing Warcraft one day in to the trial.

    Now, if they ever do a World of Starcraft, I may reconsider. Until then I eagerly await Tabula Rasa.

    Tell me about it, I still get the sweats thinking about the countless hours spent in Ever Quest camping some spot for a named monster that only spawns once ever 4 hours or so. The best was when the damn thing would show up and a group that was hiding near by come running up and steels the kill.
