World of Warcraft

Anybody here play this?


I had a gift card left over from Christmas so I popped into Best Buy today and decided to give it a whirl.



I missed the fine print on the box that mentioned it was an online-only game...and additional online fees would apply. Regardless, the box was already open and the first month was free so I decide to give it a go and see if it's worth it.
After almost 2 hours of downloading patches and updates I finally get to the point to create a character and start playing.

Nope. The server is busy and new characters are not being allowed because of the "peak-hour"...please try again on an off peak hour. When is that? Noon time on a weekday when all the kids are in school and everyone else is at work, me included?

It's a video game. I just want to install it and play it fer cryin out loud!

Now I have to see if I can get my money back somehow.

Get used to it. The software companies want to make this the "future" of program using.

Cuts down on illicit use.

Re: World of Warcraft

Illicit use? It used to be that you needed the cd in the drive in order to be able to play and if more than one of the same key code was in use at the same time you got booted.

Looks like a cool game but I'm not that interested in playing it.
