Lets find out guys what is the age category of players is most willing to play! This is sort of social poll and you don't really have to put down your exact age if you don't want to. That's not a secret that a lot of old players which by now are about 30tish or even 40tish are coming back to their well-known game although a lot of new players don't mint to taste the journey if not to say they are looking forward to. So lets see how many of them.

P.S. the differentiation 'design' is chosen by me and doesn't mean any kind of age discrimination or something like that.

Cheers

Update: Also to make things a bit more interesting you can share if and if yes how World of Warcraft affected your life. I will start it off.
So...after i played this game and experienced the magic of it i definitely decided to stay virgin lol joking actually i realized that time that has been spent in wow is not wasted, totally not, the feelings we experienced especially while we were growing are not the same you can get elsewhere, i can't really express it more correct but...these feelings are unique and i believe this is what old players are taking care of and willing to recreate in wow classic. Thats my thought for tonight.

I have nothing fancy to add here, but if you've never played Binary Domain, you should.

26-30 now, but when started to play WoW and other MMOs I was like 13-14. Classic will bring so many memories from the past, can't wait!

teebling's bday? Congrats mate! 28 huh, ahh to be young again..
Don't want to make you dread the future or anything but god once you get a couple of years into your 30s you really start to notice it, urgh..
Enjoy youth while you can! Sure wish I could lose weight as easily now as 5-10 years ago.

More on topic, Wow definitely had a profound impact on my life. I started in late highschool and came to slack immensely with my studies due to playing too much. I toned down wow significantly in very late vanilla (around nax release I think) as I started university, but once TBC came out my brother got me back into the game and I went all out hardcore raiding all the way through TBC and Wrath, MT'ing and dpsing for the server's leading guild.
I met a girl through wow back then and we ended up living together for years. She saw how I was slacking with university and got me to take it more seriously, and so I ditched my math major to study English instead, and around late cata-early pandaria I played very casually in order to graduate properly. We however split up and I went back into hardcore raiding in late pandaria/early-mid WoD. Just before that I also finally graduated and became a highschool teacher of English and math.
After working for a few years and saving up money I eventually went to Japan, where I arrived with such miraculous timing as to land a private school job after just a few months (they were desperate lol).
Time passed and I met my current wife, and well we got married last Christmas.
I have had many times where I looked back and thought my life/chances etc had been ruined from too much wow and such similar thoughts. But now looking back from where my life is, the encounters I had in wow and the timing with which I slacked to play wow/stopped to study ended up coming down to changing my degree just in time for a wonderful job at a great school first in Denmark and then later in Japan, where this weird math/English combination somehow was exactly what was needed at just the right time, in exactly the location that allowed me to meet my wife, a Japanese woman with an interest in Denmark (they are rare, let me tell you that), just as she was about to quit her job of 8 years and move to this area.
If I hadn't played wow I might've been an accountant or something, working somewhere in Denmark, never realizing my dream of going to Japan. Might have never split from my slightly abusive girlfriend (or might indeed have never met her and pulled myself together for my studies). Might have never met my wife.

And I would never have found this forum!!

Needless to say, WoW has been a massive part of my life for years, and I have had mixed feelings about it. Now, settled in a job at a permanent position, slowly making friends, learning the language, married, trying to have kids, and the original version of the game I so loved all those years ago is coming back?
Yeah, I can't regret it how things have turned out, that's for sure. And being able to admit to myself that it is okay I love this game so much, that even if I totally ditched the life around me to play it ended up bringing so much good to my life that I can now continue to enjoy it (a little more moderately) even this many years later and see naught but happiness around me..truly, wow is a life's companion.

I'll be playing wow classic until I sit here teaching my grandkids how to properly kite as a hunter, telling them stories of large fat monsters patrolling the dark roads at night so that they come home properly after school as good kids.. :p
Became a bit of a long story, sorry about that!

Dingin' 30 in a month, time moves fast. ;)

I remember in 2005 there was a guild accepting only people above 30. Not out of rudeness, but they just wanted mature players and I recall there weren't many. They were called Oak Leaves of Darkness (OLD). I think nowadays it would be opposite on Vanilla realms - mostly people above 30 with youngsters creating guilds without old pricks. :lol:

I'd imagine that most of the classic wow player base would be around their 30's and 40's because of how much younger they were back in 2005. (Maybe even mid-late 20's)

30 here. I was in high school when WoW launched, which probably puts me in with the majority.

23 here. I remember visiting my uncle and seeing him raid MC when I was about 10-11 year sold. The internet was still new to me back then so seeing 40 people play together all at once? Man, that was jaw-dropping.

Cool to see many people are in the same age catogeroy as me. I was 15 when i started playing WoW - it is going to be very interesting experiencing the game from a more mature standpoint.

31 now, which is weird to type/say out loud, so I have a family now. I had so much fun playing during the end of highshcool, but then even more so in 2006-2007 after highshcool while I was working a regular job. I'm excited to just hang out in Azeroth to be honest, just level and PvP and explore and chat. Can't wait!

Sad to see no "Under 15" votes. Back in 2005 when I (and a lot of rl friends) played I was 14 years old. We need more new fresh people

This is true. I guess they will be, they just do not attend such forums from my believe.

The most young people do not really use Forums anymore. They join a Discord and talk there.

Seeing this age distribution gives me hope for a more understanding raid schedule.
