This week’s Blog Azeroth’s Shared Topic is:
“Have you ever tried to introduce real life friends to WoW? If yes, how did it go? If you never have, why not?”
While I was introduced to WoW from a Highschool Friend, I never had luck introducing my friends to WoW. It took me and two other friends to get one of my friends to play WoW, simply because we would not stop talking about and he wanted to understand what we were discussing every day.
I do have a unncanny ability of bringing retired Warcraft players back into the game. The strange thing is that the three friends that I brought back, I did without actively doing anything.
By just playing WoW and mentioning it in some gaming conversations I got them back to WoW.
One friend came back two years ago when Catalysm was about to hit the shelves, the other one was my last year’s college roommate when he was all the raids I was apart of that year, and the third was when I was talking about how Cataclysm was in a lull and the players were all waiting for the next content. (He really liked Cataclysm but was not looking forward to the chances in Mists of Pandaria)
I may not be good introducing friends to WoW, but it seems that I can bring back ex-Azerothians, and every I forget to send them a scroll of Resurrection to reap the rewards for recruiting a friend back to the game.
Be MOP focuses on the lead up to the next World of Warcraft expansion with my own reflections about the last dying moments of the Catalysm’s Twilight Hour as we look into the Mist of the new day. Updates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
