How old were you when World of Warcraft launched in 2004? Now add 14 to that. Do ya feel super old yet? Where were you when it launched?

Blizzard is kicking off November with a month of festivities celebrating the game’s 14th birthday and beyond, beginning with BlizzCon this weekend, then Darkmoon Faire, Pilgrim’s Bounty, Day of the Dead, the Moonkin Festival, and other PvE and PvP mini-holiday goodies.

The anniversary events themselves will apparently run from November 16th to the end of the month. Wonder if we’ll get another minipet this year?

Ooh, I was 22 fresh faced and just starting my first job (earning a measly 17k a year! /sadface) and trying to juggle rent and a car with the demands of a high maintenance girlfriend… don’t miss those days! lol

I was playing EQ2 when WoW came out, which had been out a few months prior. There was lots of zone-wide chat going on about WoW, of which I’d never heard of prior to that.

In total, I’ve played WoW maybe 7-8 months. It was fun the first time around and I mowed through the quests, absolutely enjoying them up to Cataclysm. After hitting max level and dealing with how nasty people were in pick-up groups, which was my first full-on bad experiences with people in an MMO, never went back.

Was playing Earth & Beyond then it got shutdown around the time of the Wow launch. Went over to Eve online for awhile then moved with my guild to Wow.

I was 52 and a FPS and space sim player who couldn’t see the point of RPGs. Got dragged in by a few friends and was entranced by WoW’s virtual world. Still playing ;-)

Not sure. Wasn’t into online games when it launched. So this date is really insignificant to me.

April of 2005 was different though. That’s when my closest friend took me on a tour of the game. I bought a copy of it in May. That’s when things in my world changed rather dramatically… o.O

I was living in a small seaside town at the time , going to a lot of beach parties and gigs etc . I’d just split up with a girlfriend who I had been with a couple of years and was out enjoying myself . I wasn’t playing many games at the time because my PC was a bit of a toaster , I think I was trying various different Half Life mods and going through Baldur’s Gate 2 .
