my name is steph and im also addicted to WOW. so is my husband.
he spends every waking moment (while at home) playing, so instead of giving him wife 'aggro', i decided to join him.
the first time he asked me to play his toon and level his daggers (about 4 years ago now) i told him it was time to buy a 2nd computer.
so i had a 2nd computer built and now we play together. he sits in the office with me and his comp is right next to mine and we have a blast.
we were always close, but now we have this and it keeps us spending lots of time together.
i never liked computer games at all, but WOW is freakin AWESOME!!!!
I LUV IT!
my husband and i are guild masters of THE DREAD, on the oceanic server jube'thos.
we have 243 members and we have vent and raid together all the time. we talk like old friends and interact together. its great, especially when you cant go out much due to this disease. everyone is nice, if not we g'kick them. (LOL)
i made our guild a website (since im a web designer) and we have forums and i always (in the middle of work) find myself on them.
we even met up with a bunch of them that live locally and went out for drinks. meet lots of nice people, use your brain and it beats mindlessly watching TV. we even read in time magazine that a guy who was a guild master in WOW got a CEO position over 6 other shortlisted people solely because he was a guild master. we have to organise and lead people and delegate and get the right classes together to successfully raid.
its good for the mind and i recommend everyone try it!
with all that being said (yea yea, sorry for gettin carried away), we still always go out and walk on the beach, or fish, or go out to eat and hang out with friends. we never pass up going out. but when we are here, its just too fun!
i have 3 toons and my level 70 is all epic'd out! i luv it.
its so fun and easy to get into.
we have a few girls in our guild as well. not just for guys.
and it has kept us in touch with all our friends that live all over the world and those still in san diego since we moved to australia.
its like we never stopped hangin out. (well kinda)
i know why everyone is addicted. its like a drug.
and all you wives and husbands giving your partners 'aggro', dont be too too mad until you try it yourself. plus they (we) really can't help ourselves. hehe.
but sweetmelody, im not in anyway condoning what your husband is doing. that crosses the line really, especially with sex emails.
emailing and chatting about the game (with a male or female) is one thing, but what he's doing is something not right at all.
anyhoo, yes, i am addicted and it has been a real savior since having this disease. if not for WOW i would have spent the last 2 years staring at the walls (when not on the toilet) or watching crap on TV.
you should all try it. you will like it if you like fantasy stuff.
