    When did you begin playing WoW?

    question is self-explanatory, answer is divided by expansion and calendar year.

    started feb 2007.

    interesting that with 126 votes, 2/3s classic or pre-release, and 87% bc or earlier.
    at 415 votes, still ~60% classic and another 25% bc - also interesting that 20% of people who started in 2007 started in the first 3 weeks of january (pre-bc launch).

    Classic 2005, at European release, I didn't play daily as I was in the army back then, had subscription going on all the time though and played on weekend vacations.

    Got my account in late 2005 (so that's what I voted), but I had been playing at a friends place for about a year or so

    Don't make me link that picture from the other thread on you (which doesn't show closed beta, but still shows release.)

    Closed beta phase 2!! I was playing when Human pallys could fear Undead players. I was playing when the interface looked like leather.

    Whats funny is that I had gotten EQ2 beta first. And I liked it a lot, then I rcvd closed beta phase 2 email from blizzard, installed it, played it for a few hours. Exited the game and uninstalled EQ2 Beta.

    First tried it when it was in closed US beta, however it was without a beta key so I was stuck on private servers with no npcs or mobs =)
    Got in the closed EU beta in the last few weeks before release. Played on and off since iwth breaks ranging from a few weeks to a couple of years.
