It's not a bad idea. Very few people outside from the mods have my real information from here, and even some of those only have my battletag. The only people who are far more aware of who I am are my old guildmates, one of whom is my partner that I live with.
Angels and AirwavesCHVRCHΞS - Motion City Soundtrack - Bombay Bicycle Club - Los Campesinos - Empire of the Sun - HellogoodbyeAldmeri Dominion - Imperial - Templar - Laethys - High Elf - Assassin - Frostmourne - Orc - Rogue - Sea of Sorrows - Norn - ThiefBorderlands 2 - Mechromancer - Battlefield 4 - Engineer - Diablo 3 - Wizard
Meh I don't really care, though I don't just give out my info to everyone.
Got no need of keeping the fact that I play a secret, that's kinda silly in my opinion.
Depends on who I'm talking to. I've made some friends online that have become some of my best friends IRL.
It's a case by case basis imo.
Well not exactly like you keep it I suppose. I do it for work related reasons - I simply don't want to be associated with online gaming for professional appearances as even hookers and doing coke seems at times more socially accepted so I don't tend to run around and post facebook/linkedin/realid and whatever information to anyone that asks online. Currently there isn't even a person anymore in my guild that knows my last name except for the guild master.
I have a couple of close irl friends that I know from wow or other online games though and most people I consider to be more than an acquaintance should be aware that I am playing wow.
I do that aswell, I even have 2 different Facebook profiles - One with pictures,real life friends,family,etc etc and one without any pictures,information,real life friends,family and exclusively only people I know from WoW or other games, but mostly WoW. As for Real Id, I do not give it to anyone, however I do give away my BattleTag to anyone that asks.

Thanks to Noxychu for the wonderful avatar!
I only give my real I'd out to IRL friends (very close ones) and family members.

9 out of 10 people agree that in a room full of 10 people one person will always disagree with the other 9.
I keep my real life info secret but not because I'm afraid of what my RL friends would think, but because I don't trust people online. Simple as that. Only people that know who I am are my siblings who play and my one RL friend that I got into the game.
When you're in the business of controversy, you keep your in-game, forums, and rl seperate.

Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.
Maybe I'll be back for WoW2, but probably not. - Slowpoke, the former Dokhidamo
haha, my guild name (used to be bank guild but now leveling it up with some real life friends) is MTSU Economics, so anybody in the middle Tennessee area know a little bit about me right off the bat. I am not too protective, I act on wow like I do in real life. I try my best to be polite, respectful and courteous to other people. I don't think I have made any enemies in game, so I am not too worried about somebody coming to find me. I look at it if somebody hunts me down in real life from info they got from playing WOW with me, God is saying it is my time to go!
500 hours? since 2006? so like 2 hours a week?
yea, you're out of game friends would really get on your case about that.
I'm still trying to figure out why you're so ashamed that you play WoW. Video games are bigger than ever and a huge percentage of the population plays them in some form. At this point they'll probably think it's weirder you had a hidden WoW habit for over 6 years than the fact that you play it.
I am EXTREMELY tired of how social we're 'required' to be these days, so when i am gaming it's more like a relief from all that. Sure, I'm a little introverted, so that also plays in, and I've also had a rather nasty experience involving some stalkiness so I basically just let only the very few close friends know. And I am the same also with irl friends, not nearly all have a clue.
My guildies used to know my name, but I wouldn't accept them on Facebook or anything. Same as you, my friends would've thought it was weird to talk to people online as mates. I also wanted to keep the fact that I played WoW a secret, as did my other mate. I succeeded at it, also, for 5 years! Haha. We always used to joke and mock WoW so people wouldn't suspect stuff. Thinking about it now we were like Dexter haha.
