    WoW players don't count their playtime in hours, months or years please.

    You are not the only one, and please keep it that way, Ii have seen whole families getting divorced, and children be left on their own. And have seen homes pilled with junk, dishes piled up to the roof and no householding nomore whatsoever, 10 garbage bags in the hall, seen friends lost their jobs because of, to much sick relieves and freetaking or not even showing up. No more socializing with friends nomore, not comming to birthday party's of friends. Leaving a friends wedding because of some collective wow attack...

    All because a damn useless piece of "life" time consuming junk thats called WOW, that also cost money every month. And in the end many lost years, friends and family, sickness and a normal social life...

    While I agree that WoW is an extremely addicting game, you can't blame the game for everything. I think it all comes down to wheter you have the will-power to control your gaming time. I'd say that the people that get that addicted have low self-control, similar to those that never manages to stop smoking or drinking, even though it destoys their own and others' lives.

    I've never played WoW either. I've played a few of the other MMOs (Lineage 2, Vanguard,etc) but I usually play for a month or two and then the grind gets too bad and i move on to something else. I've heard that Wow isnt as bad as some of the others when it comes to grinding but I've never gotten around to trying it. World of Starcraft sounds cool though but I'd love to see World of Diablo myself :)

    Now, when wow "breaks up families" the problem isnt going to be wow. It is going to be the family. The only reason people blame WoW is because its high profile and in the news right now. There are millions of happy families playing WoW and not being broken apart.
    This argument is as stupid as people blaming counterstrike on high school murder rampages. it is the exact same thing.

    The family break up, if it wasnt on WoW, would be due to drinking, drug use, gambling, sleeping around and every other number of activities. Just in this instance the catalist is WoW.

    I have been paying for 2+ years and I still talk to my parents and sisters and the rest of my family. Infact my relationship with them now is alot better than it use to be.

    I tried it, and failed to see the point in grinding, so went back to Eve :).

    Have never played it as I personally hate, hate, fantasy. Perhaps it stems from being forced to read C. S. Lewis books as a kid *shudder*...
    If the new MMORPG is something other than dealing with trolls, wizards and other creatures thought up by bored, plague-addled village dwellers in the middle-ages then I'd be interested.

    Still playing it here, racked up 128 Days on my main. Still love the game, so much to do in there. Although i find the lvling boring and would prefer to do BGs / raids.

    I've played a few other MMOs FFXI, Phantasy Star, Guildwars. But none can match upto the virtual crack that WoW is.

    To give it up now would be to waste all the time and effort i've put into my main :p

    You went back to EVE to avoid grinding? Personally I'd prefer grinding to sitting around for hours doing nothing while on autopilot.

    I used to play WoW a lot, but quit after a year of averaging 8 hours a day. I think I had ~114 days played on my main after 13 months or something? I decided that was too much and never logged in again. Best decision I made.

    I hope they focus on WoW's endgame more, my guild (www.celebrityguild.com) only have 2 instances worth clearing a week and PvP loses its magic after a while leaving us raiding 2/3 nights a week and not much the rest of the time!
