I arrived late to the beggining of World of Warcraft, I started playing in 2.3 so I missed the frenzy of those first raids of 40 and started experiencing the first changed to ease the leveling experience (lesser elites and new questing zones with easier quests); while I always wanted to experience vanilla I don't regret my playtime during 2004-2007. Back then I played a lot of Lineage 2 (c3 & c4 mainly) with a couple of friends on private servers; it was a lot of fun: pvp battles with a lot of players in open field, castle sieges and city control between clans, special dungeons that only opened some days and a coplue of classes focused on crafting are things I always missed on WoW. I also played a lot of Counter Strike 1.6.

What did you played back then?

I joined in WOTLK. Before that i played from time to time different games. If take MMOs that would be Lineage 2 and Ragnarok Online. But again, my Internet back then was poor quality. So i played more single player games.

Nice, single player games were more popular back then and are a great way to enjoy a story. Wich ones did you played?

Was playing Warcraft III and Diablo II well into WoW’s release cycle. I remember actually being pissed off that WoW was reusing icons from WC3 for some reason lol.

I started playing WoW at the end of Legion and a bit of BFA.

Before that I played many different games, but most of the time my main games were League of Legends and Counter Strike. Still play them from time to time, but not like I used to. Back in the day used to grind Mu Online as well. From reset to reset...

Joined in WOTLK (was already playing Vanilla private servers). Played a LOT of Doom/Doom 2 and every FPS I could find (Ken's Labyrinth, Nitemare 3D, Duke3D, Catacomb Abyss etc.). Also enjoyed RPG-explorable games like Morrowind

I played a lot of Dungeon Siege I & Neverwinter Nights I too. Loved those games and hated what became with DS3 & NWN 2...

I started playing the week before Patch 3.3 came out. Before that I didn't really play MMORPGs; I think I tried the original Guild Wars and hated it. DIdn't play many computer games back then.

I didn't play much during Vanilla days either, but when I did, my time was dedicated to Diablo II. Occasionally I would switch to something like Heroes of Might and Magic III and come back to Diablo later.

Might have been Counter Strike but it is so long I cannot even remember.

I did play Vanilla but I was a little late to the party because I had played Star Wars Galaxies, until they destroyed the game with the combat upgrade re-balance nonsense... so fitting that it basically spells "CURB" because it certainly curbed my interest in the game.

SWG was my first MMO and ultimately the reason I got into WoW.

Cheers.

I was fairly young and I didn't get a laptop until mid TBC, I didn't get an experience of Vanilla or TBC except for on private.

I was playing the N64 and Gamecube when classic was around, I wasn't aware of how good WoW was at the time being occupied with school.
I had Metroid prime, Eternal Darkness, Banjo-Kazooie-tooie and GTA-SA
