    Personally I'm surprised to see that the poll so far has mostly 'veteran'-players. With the stagnating subs you'd imagine that WoW would have a lot of new subscribers all the time, new to the franchise. This poll kinda points out that it's mostly just the veteran players who keep quitting and coming back, without much fresh blood or new people coming in.
    The problem here is that MMO-C is mostly used by "veteran" players. And the players using MMO-C are a super small percentage of the overall playerbase so the poll is effectively meaningless for what you want really.
    Sometimes updated...

    Veteran to the core, been playing since 18/02/2005 which has to be close to European release date. Although I've had more "breaks" from the game during MoP than previous expansions combined.

    Yep, that's pretty much me. It kind of lost its charm though, either I grew away from it, or the downgrading of difficulty just made it less special to me. Either way, despite having experienced WoW at every stage, I think MoP is the best it has ever been, maybe with competition from very early Cataclysm.

    Already interesting data. Not really a fair metric given the nature of a fan forum, but still, interesting. Retired, for what it's worth.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    ICC came out more than 3 years ago, and most ppl joining then were called Wrath babies... so no way does that make someone a veteran xD

    I've been playing since wow first came out, played FT and RoC before that.
