I'll be honest I didn't really play many PC games until I met my partner at the time (who introduced me to WoW) and I was fairly young when Vanilla was out. So I was mostly on consoles playing games like... Pokemon, Final Fantasy, LoZ etc

Back in '04 to '06 Warcraft III (played 2 as a little kid), Sacred, RuneScape, then Oblivion.

I started playing WoW on a private server when 3.0.9 went live, made a warrior, decided to try out other classes to see what they did, when I deleted the alts I accidentally goofed my warr away with them, so I, not knowing you could ask a GM to bring him back, made a paladin.

When I finally bought retail WoW I went horde, made an undead Rogue, unlocked DKs and mained one till MoP when I came back to the alliance on a paladin. In WoD I made my warrior and have been maining him ever since, with an undead rogue as #1 alt, but all my others are alliance.

Sorry I played Vanilla but I didnt start at the beginning, honestly don't remember when I started, probably beginning of 2005.

Before WOW was basically FPS in half-life/half-life 2 and the very popular game called Counter-Strike 1.6
Counter-Strike was WOW before WOW was WOW, WOW so many WOW's!

Other mods too that were fun from half-life was Day of Defeat!

I did play vanilla, but I joined late and I never reached max level during retail. Before that I played som weird mmo's including something called Knights online, gunz and Runescape. Started playing wow and never looked back.

Expect the worst. Hope for the best.

Joined in MoP, when WoW came out I was only 5 years old so I wouldn't be able to play it very well. :lol:
I played ToonTown Online back when I was much younger, quite a while before I played WoW. Then I got into CoD during World at War and Black Ops.
Then I transferred over to PC, and eventually got into WoW :biggrin:

I started to play Guild Wars in 2005 and I started to play on Pserv when patch 2.3 was released, so for some time I played both games, and I switched to official servers at WOTLK release. I stopped playing GW short after GW:EN came out and I stick to WoW from that time, until Cata ruined world PvP.

WoW (I started just before TBC) was my first ever PC game, maybe apart from like Duke Nukem and Jazz Jackrabbit. I think at the time I would have been flat-out playing my PS2, probably Tony Hawks and GTA.

I started playing WoW a few months after TBC came out. Between 2004-2007 I was mostly playing Runescape, Diablo II, Unreal Tournament 2004, a Korean FPS game called Warrock, Pokemon on the GBA/DS, and Super Smash Bros. Melee on the Gamecube. Good times were had.

I was late to the Vanilla party, started in the fall of 2005 I think.

Before WoW there was WarCraft 3: TFT, before that there was Diablo2: LOD, before that there was SC2: BW. Next to that there was Counter Strike.

At least those were the big time spenders. Back then anything Blizzard made was golden, in my opinion.

Of course there was lot's of single player stuff to play in between, but I had a group of friends in school whom I always played these games together with. The nice thing is, gaming is one of the things that held our little group together. It's been 22 years since we all met, but we are still the best of friends and game together, right now we play some League of Legends for the fun of it. We are terrible at it these days but having a blast.
