    Credit card, ofc..

    I started to play when I was 35, during TBC..
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    Played on and off. When I had saved up some money, I bought a card. When I didnt have money I couldn't play.

    If you want a happy marriage in a dual income household, both parties should put 50% of their net into a joint account for the day to day shit - mortgage, insurance, food, etc - and the other 50% should remain your money. Cuts way down on arguments, resentments, etc and leads to a happier life.

    I wasn't allowed to play. I have been play warcraft since war1 but my parents felt it was insane to pay a monthly sub to "play a game", as a result I didn't get to play wow until I got my own credit card at 18. (late vanilla)

    i did some side jobs for my brother back in the day with his company so he mostly payed for my Wow sub until i got a job of my own

    I was an adult and was in the military in 2005 ...so I just paid for it with money

    I can't imagine that includes paying for WoW

    My dad loved to watch me play and was fascinated by the idea of a large persistent world that took lots of real time and various modes of transportation (zeppelin/boats/FPs) to traverse, so he happily paid for my sub fee.

    I didn't think much of it then, but looking back it was actually a really special time.

    Millenial is anyone born after 1980 I believe.

    But yeah, as someone who also fits into this bracket, I just paid for it with my own money.

    2005 was my last year of school. Before I had my own income I played on a shared account in a computer club and then did some leveling/farming/ranking help for a buddy to play on his account. When I got into uni I paid with my own money. My parents were never fans of spending time like that, so they would never pay for it even if I asked.

    Invest my 15€ montly pocket money in my Sub. Most of the deposit bottles my mother bought i hide in my room, to be able to grab some snacks. And Sometimes my Grandma gave me a few Euros. Rarely i asked a friend to lend me some money.

    Paying my Sub wasnt a big Problem at all. The bigger Problem was to Trick my Parents to pass through parental control of the Internet, or at the evening when i need give them my D-Link Wland-USB Stick i tried to get it back, when they are a sleep or looked in the PC-Room of my father for anotherone.

    There was a Time i need to get my whole Computer back at night, cause my mother tooked it a way, cause i had a bad mark at the end of the year at my testimony. And cause my teacher said "saixilain is always so tired mimimi" and overall i was 24/7 on my PC... so it was hard time to play

    When i got a smartphone i was able to use it as a hotspot for my PC, cause my father just locked my PC with parental control. And even when he locked my phone aswell i used my trash mobile network to run wow and played with like 3sec+ delay.

    I was around, 15 when I started WoW, during Naxx40 patch of Vanilla.
    I would save up an allowance and buy time cards, $5 a week since money was tight so there were quite a few gaps all through BC.
    I tried to get a part time job after school, but where I lived you had to apply for a work permit and that was too much noise.
