I was guildless after leaving for a wow-break and got invited to this super awesome guild. I befriended a lot of people and specially a disc priest. We chat regulary, and we've become really good friends! We chat and have fun daily!
2 years ago met a friend in Goldshire on horde side we just had some fun, after while we started talk on skype, he was nice. Later he asked me to be his girlfriend, i was surprised. We don't live in same country we talk on skype for those months every single day and finally this summer we will have chance to meet eachother :)) And so i met a really nice and crazy like me bff we both hope someday we meet too ;))
It's the start of a new era, the burning crusade and I am just not prepared.I meet a friendly blood elf female paladin called Fontana in a 5man group for Razorfen Kraul. The tank we had was one of them typical elitist jerks always looking down on new / lower level players. I tell him to relax and that she learnt from whatever he thought she did wrong. She whispers me and thanks me for telling him to stop. We continue to talk after the dungeon is done eventually time grew short and it was night time. We both added eachothers on the friends list and went to bed.The day after I logged in at around 13:00 and the instant my loading screen was done I got a whisper from her. We kept talking around 2 weeks until I decided to ask her where she was from. turns out she's Swedish, just like me and only a year younger. I still have her as a friend and talk to her sometimes via text.This all started a few days after the burning crusade was released. Damn when you think of it like that, close to 7 or 8 years of friendship because of a game.And people say we aren't social?
Our GM and main tank's casual online flirting eventually ended up in their marriage last year, to which many guildies attended (longest journey was made by a Shadow Priest driving 240 miles) and have become firm friends over the years.
I met my friend " D"( real nickname) or referred to as "Mallakai" <--(human paladin name) in burning crusades. This was a time before LFR or instant ques for tanks. This was time when you filled the general chat with lfg requests and hoped you found members that would stick around until the end of the dungeon and complete it with minimal wipes. This was also a time when you used meeting stones. Me and my friend "Bluesin" <--(RLF), needed three more to complete VC while we were leveling on an oceanic realm. We got a pst from a paladin tank named Malakai so we invited him. Sweet we have a tank! Now all we needed was a healer and one more dps :P! Mallakai came and helped me and Bluesin summon our healer and dps after waiting several minutes and questing together in Westfall. During this time we had allot of time to engage in a great conversation about various subjects. When our group got into Deadmines, about half way through, the dps and healer left so it was just me(fury warrior), mallakai, and bluesin(enhancement shaman). We completed the dungeon, just the three of us, racking up much more xp than with 5 poeple and left with a feeling of accomplishment. This was the start of a new wow friendship. Every night the three of log on around the same time and quest together, bg together, and do dungeons together. I always thought it would be interesting to meet D in real life and I have always spoke with him over vent and he is one of the coolest dudes I know.
Years ago, I would work overnight at a job that allowed me to play video games, and I would play with a guildmate who was stationed overseas. Over time, we got to be good friends and could talk about anything. In 2012, I needed to move across country for school. Coincidentally, to the very same state my friend and his brother lived in! They met us at our new apartment and helped us move all our furniture in, and now we see my friend and sometimes his brother and all hang out. Having people we knew in a brand new state helped the move feel not so scary, and meeting IRL wasn't even weird, as we had spent so much time getting to know each other and adventuring together. On a similar note, another guild mate moved to the state we previously lived in with a bunch of high school friends that I raided with. Again, she said it was neat to move to a new place and already know people. I think it's so neat that some of these online friendships transferred to the real world!
I've met so many people, and I still remember I met a guy back in 2006 by the name of Juggernaugt. Now we're like best buds in WoW and we still like to take the piss out of each other (As friends do). I force him to take me places and he makes me do stuff for him.
I actually have two stories related to meeting someone through WoW.The first was my girlfriend of 5 years, we started out leveling characters together and raiding together. Eventually admitted we had feelings for each other and made the jump to meet. We were everything we expected out of each other and more, and a couple years later we moved into an apartment together.The other story is where I met one of my best friends who eventually referred me to a great job. When I first met this guy, he would lead pug raids and I thought he was a complete ass. I thought he was arrogant and entitled and really didn't want anything to do with him. I joined his raids though, because at the time it was my only choice and they were relatively successful. We ended up talking more after raiding together and I got to know him better. It turns out he just came off that way in public chat because he generally didn't care what the general public thought of him and just wanted to get his raids going. We met each other in person a couple times and became great friends. Flash forward to a few years later and he asked if I knew anyone who would be interested in a job opening at his company in my city. I was that interested person, and I still work there today.
My story's a bit backwards, I met someone online, who introduced me to WoW. And while we've moved away from being "together" in a way, we're still good friends... and I'm still hooked on WoW.
I would love to meet one of most bestest friends I met in WoW. He's been there through thick and thin. The only thing is I already know who he is in real life, and I'm sure they're more looking for complete strangers.Maybe they'll help me track down my old cotank so I can confront him and ask him why he abandoned the raid team so suddenly -_-
i hope i got this one...
Back in 2007 when I started playing WoW, I didn't know anything about the game, my class or anything else. I was what you call a Noob :D. After getting to level 18 or so, I've met a Druid level 50ish who helped me clear DeadMines. We started to talk and guess what? He had the same nationality as me. After that we talked and talked daily about WoW, he taught me how to play, what dungeons to run, he boosted me through some. After a year or so... I visitted his city and we finally met face to face. We hung out at a bar, drank some beer and the next thing I notice is that we have been vistting each other till this day and we talk almost daily... WoW has made me so many memories that I care of. MMOs are really a good thing to the Gaming world.
Most of my best lifetime friendships have been made through World of Warcraft. When I was starting college I did not have many friends and was not very good at making them. Eventually my guild had a real life meet up, and I finally met most of the people I had been talking to online. Afterwards I moved down to where they lived, and started hanging out with them more. I eventually met my best friends and probably future best man because they played the game. People can talk trash all they want about WoW, but I've met some of the most amazing people and made lifelong friendships because of it. The show will probably highlight the awkward parts of this for laughs and money but I think there is definitely a good side to it.
I met two lovely ladies one day as they sought out a guild on their new server and asked me if they could join the one I was in, asking for an officer. They were crazy like myself and so we've been guildies through many crazy adventures, some in our own guild. Recently, after being away from one another for about 1,5 year we got together yet again and are now back in action as I was given a transfer Christmas gift and we now wait eagerly for Warlords together! =D
Back in Wrath my best friend introduced me to a guild that was looking for an off tank for Naxx 25. Membership in that raid kept changing over the course of the expansion, but by ICC I had joined a cool guild and made about a half dozen great friends. They've stopped playing WoW for the most part, but we still keep in touch and play other games together. I even met two of them face to face just last summer.
A few years ago i met a guy who had almost the same name as I did. Instant best friend. To this day when go back to wow, we do it together, farm up some pvp gear and destroy arenas :D
Six years ago I was so very new to the game. I got invited into a large guild full of close knit friends that made me feel welcome. One of those members I ended up getting very close to. We did a couple months of online dating, even going to far as to have our characters married in an in-game ceremony, before he traveled 1300 miles to move in with me and begin a real life relationship. It was my first real relationship to last longer than six months, and my first love. He was my first for many, many things. We were together for almost four years before it ended. I still remember him fondly and the silly things we did online and in real life.
I've really only met casual friends online in WoW. Back in Vanilla, I had a good group of guild friends, and we had a great time in Molten Core and BWL . However, many of them transferred servers, or quit, and I now use WoW to keep in touch with real life friends that have moved away.
My raid team is made up of some of the greatest people ive ever never met!
Skautik, Faraday, Pantau- Three great guys I met years ago on private server. When I learnt they would start playing official, I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat. I managed to follow them, at that time it wasn't easy for me, but I managed. Too bad after years our friendship slowly died. I see them almost everyday in game, but I don't know what to talk about anymore. We had great time together.
