So, after realising in the chat room there are a lot of closet players thought it was about time for this.

So I'll start :)

My main player is misscarlett
She's a dwarf hunter on Caelestrasz

There, I admit, I play WoW, and I love it

I know there are more of you out there!

And if any of you are wanting to join, nows good
They offer free ten day trials so you can decide if WoW is for you
If you choose to do a free ten day trial you may as well get it sent via email from one of us, as if you continue we get free game time too :P (shameless ploy I know)

I had a ton of chars when I quit.  62nd lvl Alliance Hunter on some server I cant remember,  70 Shaman, 70 Priest, 29 Hunter Twink (BG twink), and a few mid 50's chars I cant even remember anymore..  Last played on Burning Blade.  Will never play again.  :)

Level 70 Gnome Mage called Fraktul on Khaz'Goroth. Go through phaseof playing on and off again - last year I took a 10 month break, then started again.

Quite enjoy playing but it is a big time sink - at the moment since pretty much all my friends have moved to the UK/States and I am saving up to move over myself I have a reasonable amount of free time to play however ;)

Currently mainly raiding SSC/TK with a bit of MH thrown in and some BT very shortly (we have just done BT trash so far).

OMG all Alliance characters too.

I'm an Ex-Wow player.
I've moved on to better games, such as World of World of Warcraft.

For the HORDE!

This thread, and Brads post in particular are a good reminder of why I will never even trial WoW !!

I am sure that even as a bit of a non-gamer, I would get hooked.

Hello, My name is Michael, and im addicted to WoW.
Well that was until I moved flat, got wireless, and now cannot connect to even say 'Hello' to the guildies.

Have:
Kinsten @ Illidin (LVL 70, Orc Hunter)
- Full set of PVE & PVP gears, maxed LW & Skinnig prof
- Was Hunter class leader for guild,  (guild decided not to do 25 mans anymore, too hard to organise)

Mothboy @ Illidin (LVL70, Troll Mage)
 - Made for PVE and general pissing around
 - Enchanter / Jewel Crafter, to make goodies & money

Other characters, less than 40, they dont count.

Tried on other servers, missed my friends on Illidin, going to OZ to meet about 8 of em (all from Sydney) and cheer on the New Year!

For the HORDE!

might be a silly question but do they intend to re-release WoW anytime soon with all the patches so far loaded into it? thats the only thing that puts me off going back to it is all the patches use a fair chunk of my monthly datacap! however an option I've considered to get around it is drive to the nearest Cafenet wi-fi hot spot, pay $10 for 24hr unlimited data use and get the patches that way :)

I got a 5 day trial once. Jumped around for 5 minutes then stopped. Is there anything more to it?

LOL yup :)

I didnt think much of it until a friend started playing and I gave the 10 day trial a shot.... I play it for more the exploration/social feel to the game rather than hardcore do every single quest etc.
