Back In Ironforge

I got World of Warcraft loaded on one of the computers in the lab downstairs from my office and I logged on for a couple hours of bandit-slaying and emote flirting with Stick. I’ve already said how much I love WoW, and it was so nice to be back on a MMORPG! And, of course, to play with Stick. We made it through a bunch of quests in the dwarven/gnome lands, and because it had been a while since I played WoW or played in that area, I got to enjoy the graphics and the dialogue all over again.

The crowded servers were really choppy, and even on a less populated one, the cities were still laggy. (Yeah, I know. It takes weeks for a letter to make it to China and I’m complaining because my dwarf froze when she tried to loot. This is the disturbing life of a computer geek.)

The only thing I’d change about WoW is creating an adults-only server. No, not that kind of AO, I just mean a new realm where the over-eighteen crowd can quest without constant chatspam about the speaker’s super-cool 60th level on another server. I mean, I don’t need kids around when I’m playing pretend heroes!

    Darnassus rules!

    Also, I like your idea about the over 18 server. The kiddies can be quite annoying sometimes.

    Ok, you’ve touched on a sore point with me. I’ve been a fan of Warcraft since the first one (and went head first into Diabalo and Starcraft too), and when I finally got my new laptop I was super excited that I could play WoW – but (like my quest to fit into CS circles) I’ve yet to find a shop with an English version.

    Suddenly it’s hit me that I’m a moron. I download gigs of shit nonstop, why… why have I not just go the torrent for this. I guess because I’ve fallen out with games… but damnit Meg if you’ve not geekicized my spirit… I’m off to find it.

    Thanks, Ryan, my goal it to geekicize all of China over the next year.

    I actually brought WoW with me from America, it was one of the life essentials I packed when I was filling my suitcase with all the things I’d need to survive for a year.

    With Clarissa and I on opposite ends of the country right now the thing that we look forward to every week is our Sunday WoW marathons. We get together for about 5-7 hours with Skype loaded up (so we can talk) and slay beasts and complete quests and generally feel like we’re actually together. It rocks.

    BTW – Super Adventure Team still exists… although I seem to be the only one still active in the guild.
