    Secondly, addiction is addiction. If this guy did not get it via WOW then he would have gotten it via something else.

    And for the record.. WoW is too easy a game.
    Agree that addiction is addiction and the man did agree to go to rehab. Hope him and family are doing well.

    Warhammer has so jaded my view of games.
    I'd say it sounds like your coming around, actualy.

    You know, I tried my hand at a couple Hord toons, but 4 out of the 5 Hord races are hunched over, and the blood elf men stand like they have a stick up their ass. Wtf is that about?

    The look of the characters is one of the first reasons I decided not to play WoW.

    Now I find myself gameless after leaving EverQuest 2 and trying both Age of Conan and Warhammer Online. Atleast I have Fallout 3 to pass the time.

    Anyone going to play Darkfall? The graphics don't have me impressed but the skill base vs Level base will be a nice change. Brings back thoughts of UO.

    UO was nice. Is it even still operating?

    I normally play Belf Females.

    My other main is a gnome named Veldaren.

    Warhammer Online is a better game though.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't think so. I haven't played it in years.

    Darkfall is built using a similar skill base foundation as UO. There are no levels. Though supposedly Darkfall has 500 or so skills where UO had about 100.

    Did you ever play 'The Realm'? That was my first MMORPG back in the early 90s. It was built by Sierra, group that did the "Quest" series (Kings quest, Police quest, Quest for glory, etc.)

    What do you like about Warhammer? I played it since beta. I find i quite redundant. Every Chapter is exactly the same thing.

    They all had pale skin and looked like they had never been laid.
    There is a World of Warcraft TCG (trading card game), but what you saw was probably a more popular TCG: if they were teens, I'd bet it's Magic: the Gathering (my only gaming addiction).
