This game is 9 years old. Yeah next year it will be 10. I think that's just crazy if you think about it, an MMO with a MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION that's going on for all these years. There are pretty valid reasons if this game was and still is one of the best (or the best) MMO out there.
So i want to take you back to the very first time you bought WoW and you installed it (even if you just started playing wow), maybe without many expectations, maybe you were playing Warcraft 3 (like me), or maybe a friend was already playing it.
What were your impressions the first time you started playing this game?
I was basically i kid when i started playing wow ( i started at The Burning Crusade, couse i couldnt pay monthly subscription before that...) i still remember that this game made me really feel into the warcraft universe... man, at that time i never realized i was REALLY playing a TROLL (my favorite race ) like the ones i was used to see from Warcraft 3 .
The game itself felt HUGE. From the beginning it was like "God, Durotar is so big, it will take ages!" and i was so ok with that. After that i realized that if you press M on your Keyboard you go into this old fashioned Map of the world. Then i was like " O_O omg wtf?!?!"
Yeah part of that is that the 60% mount was at level 40, no heirlooms, no guild perks, you had to do all by walking (what a pain :P)
But at the time i didn't mind at all, i was so captured by all the features in the game that i could literally play for days without stopping (fortunatly i didn't do that ...)
I was already playing heavly Warcraft 3, so to me it was just amazing be able to see all my favorite characters of this franchise and be able to interact with them. I was finally able to see Thrall on the last building of Orgrimmar (again stepping into the entrance of Orgrimmar felt huge).
I had no idea this game could cought me so much, but i still play it after all this time.
