I wanted to sub a couple of games, and I have decided to try WoW and EVE. I tried WoW many of times (free trials only) and never cared for it. After a coworker of mine convinced me and I have played some more I have decided that it seems really diverse and fun. After all, Sheldon the Big Bang guys play it!!!! It's gotta be fun!

Just don't be a fanboy. Enjoy the game for what it is and not because someone else likes it.

As others have said, have fun and enjoy your gaming experience, I for one like WoW a lot and could care less who hates the game. I play it for me. If you like it, play it.. If you begin to not like it, step back from it.

Enjoy your gaming adventures!!

I am a huge gamer. I played UO from 1997 until around 2003. I played SWG for about 3 years. I played City of Heroes from 2007 until it closed last year. I played AOC for a while plus many others.

 

One question. If I purchase the $59.99 game online do I have to purchase it twice for 2 different accounts for my 2 computers?

does the 59.99 game come with original and BC, WotLK, Cata, MoP?

Do you know of any game that you can purchase once to have multiple accounts?

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

Yes and, I have not purchased a game at the store in a long time. I created 2 accounts with City of Heroes and Age of Conan and it didn't cost any extra with the exception of the 2x $14.99  a month.

I think you'll like it. It's an old game, but it has a pretty large world to explore.  Combat is very fluid.  Very simple game to get the hang of.

 

Have fun!

Best of luck! It's a fun game with a lot of polished content.

Just to clear this up.  There are only 3 things you have to buy

1.  Vanilla-   This now includes Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King expansion packs.  If you buy just vanilla, the first two expansion are automatically included.  this gets you 1-80 content and costs like $10.

2.  Cataclysm -  this is the 80-85 content and costs like $19

3.  Mists of Pandabears (MoP) - this is the 85-90 content, and costs like $39

Even though I am a huge WOW fan, I would always recommend just buying the original game (which now always includes the first two expansions).  1-80 will take you a long time your first time through, at least a month or two.  The only thing you get with MoP is the monk class, you can even play a Panda without buying the MoP expansion.  I would wait until you are sure you enjoy the game before buying MoP.

and to be fair, the first MMO mentioned on BBT was Age of Conan.... so really, I wouldn´t take Sheldon´s advice....

yeah, I know, but the WOW episodes (this one and the one where they ebay the sword) are from much later.  I believe the very first season was the episode where Penny became addicted to Age of Conan.    which is why I said ´first´.

I love that show, but it went downhill when they started adding all the other women.  The premise is about geeky nerdy smart guys living next to a hot chick.   All of a suddent the geeky-nerdy kids are all getting laid in every episode, it takes a lot of the story away.....but annnnyway...

When i started WoW right at release, i've had the gaming time of my life. No other gaming experience ever came close to those days.

OP, enjoy your time and don't let them elitists tell you that WOW sucks. It may suck after you've played it for years like they did, but it's still unbeatable as a starter experience.

If you are starting WoW, stay away from mmo forums. They are full of bitter, hateful people that arent worth listening to. Just enjoy the game.
