I hate WoW. You have to pay for the actually game, PLUS $40 bucks for 2 months. And knowing me, I get over MMORPGs after a week or so. Anyways.

Now my friends say it's like the best game EVAR, and me in my opinion (Yes, I played it as well... for a bit) it was over-rated. But now my friends can't talk anything but WoW, it pisses me off. My hate for WoW got larger and now I'm totally rejected in a group if they start talking about WoW, which is like 80% of the time. >_<

Has WoW ever stolen YOUR friends?

4 of my friends got taken away by WoW. They would stay up all night playing the game. They would miss classes in college. Their grades would drop. Its insane.

After a while, I began to truly think about the parallels between WoW and Drug Addiction. They are pretty similar. think about that with your friends.

After a year, In order to stop from playing WoW, each one of my friends had to Give all their items away and actually delete their accounts. They had to go compeltely COLD TURKEY from the game in order to stop themselves from coming back to it. They each had 2-3 level 60 characters in the game too. If you know anything about WoW, that is a HUGE time investment. And these guys aren't young kids......we are all about 20 years old.

Basically, you have lost your friends to WoW. There isn't much you can do. I avoided the game entirely but I did ask alot of questions about it in order to be partially involved in conversations. After a year, I felt like I knew everything about the game without even playing it. Eventually, your friends should just step out of the WoW phase and they'll be back to normal.

OH and by the way, I just saw the previous poster did not know what WoW was. WoW is the abbreviation for World Of Warcraft. It is a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). The game is like Everqeust if you have ever heard of that but better from what everyone says. Its highly addictive and time consuming

For me, for a player from MMORPG(not WoW,but Lineage),so i have responsibility to respond.If you havent it under control then its not the guilt of a game but of your friends.Sorry,but the game, how good she might be, can take your friends.I like very much playing but if I go with my friends,they dont exist a game that will be stop me. :)
But i agree many from my friends can talk only about MMORPGs and that friends they dont play it they dont know about what we are talking.

Yep!
Some of the people I know, they would ask me, do
you play WoW? And I would stare at them
like if they are speaking another language.
Although I do know what WoW stands for, but
to me I think that paying for a game and then
haveing to pay additional fee just to play is really stupid.

FPS games are better at least in some games you
can play together as a team. :)
e.g BattleField 2

I, personally also play wow but in my humble opinion, most of the people (including me) still prefer to go out with friends or to go swiming instead of playing.
In the first time Wow was very fascinating and fun to play but after some time the game loses its attractiveness in my opinion.

Just go your friends, grab them and go with them anywhere you want :P

The thing is, now if they wanna go out, they would go to this pc hang out store and they have conviently installed WoW there, so they can play it, while I play my other games.

It's sad my firends aren't like you. they are obsessed. I swear one of my friend wagged school just cos he was playing it.

Ok I do play WOW.. However there are those that play wow and sre completely consumed by it body mind and soul,, and there are those who play casually from time time. I fourtunately belong to the later group, yes Wow is a good game but IMO not addictive enough to almost kill yourself over. It's kind of like Drug addiction in the form of a game.

I've lost 3 of my friends to WoW... That's all they ever do or talk about anymore, and I'm sick of it. I once thought it would be cool to play, but not anymore.

About a month ago, the four of us, plus my sister and her friend went to the drive-in, and those three did nothing but talk about WoW the entire time. They didn't even realize the movie was playing until it was over. Whenever I call one of them, we only talk for a few minutes before they say, "Sorry, I'm busy playing WoW. We'll talk later." Ugh. We don't even get to see each other very much anymore, so when they do this stuff (all the time), it really ticks me off.

get a life buddy. Get some friends that you can party with and stuff, not friends that plays computergames. I bet your friends are the kind of people that says "lol" in real life too, but i might be wrong.

I had a few less close friends who really were always into WoW. I played it a few times, but I'm not into that genre of games.

You should go into a different crowd ... they're just nerds who are obsessed with a game all the time.
