You read that right, I’ve decided to come back to WOW after an almost 19 year hiatus!
I was one of the lucky few who got into the Beta and once the game released I continued playing for about six months before deciding, reluctantly, that my final year at Uni was more important than my gaming addiction, so I decided to quit WOW and focus on my girlfriend and dissertation (I still got dumped, but I also got a first!)
Anyway, in the years before and since, I’d dallied about in various online guilds and communities for other games, but sniff, I’m not sure I have ever truly recreated the joy and thrills of that original WoW experience or the online communities from back then.
I’ve resisted the temptation over the years to come back (I mean I was pretty badly addicted to be fair and there was lots of negative press about how much WoW was ruining the lives of our young people) but this year, for whatever reason, I decided instead of playing Baldur’s Gate 3 (which I’ll probably ask for at Christmas - if I can hold out that long), I played the WoW trial, bought the Dragonflight expansion and well, here I am.
So I’m really just looking to join a fun, drama free, bunch of older gamers, so I can level in PvE while I drink my craft beer and whinge about the good old days, when we all used to have to grind for seven years to hit max level, while staring at godawful models on tiny 21" CRT monitors powered by our Voodoo 5 GPU’s, writing DPS burst macro’s so we could have a chance of winning a 1v1 vs a paladin*.
(*I have no idea if that last bit is even remotely accurate - it’s been so long since I did anything remotely like that)
Downside, I’ve made about ten characters on Doomhammer since I got back but I’m probably not that attached to them all and I do have a level 60 token so would probably happily level another nine characters on your server if you also agree to listen to me talking about Amiga 1200’s.
TLDR: Old man is LFG.
Oh yeah, I’ve gone by a few names over the years “Sizerkoze” most recently but AKA SHP, SHep, SHPPPIE which are all variations on my original, childish moniker “SatansHandPuppet”
