FIVE DISKS?!
It took me well nigh TWO HOURS just to load World of Warcraft on my computer. TWO HOURS. Right now I am in the middle of downloading 30-40 minutes worth of update. 8-O

I am using one of my brothers' guest passes. But it just occurred to me that my connection has been flakey (like, I have to unscrew the cable from the modem, and/or unplug the modem every day or two to make it quit 'hanging') and the ten day trial may well be all I do. We will see.

But having enough family members playing to have 5 man teams ready-made (with spares) has a certian allure.


Edit: 20 minutes now. Guess I will have lots of time to Read the Damn Manual, eh?

Current Mood: indescribableindescribable

BWAHAHAHA Welcome to the dark side. :D Of course, I just reinstalled COH cause I forgot if I hated it or not. One of them will go by the end of the month. ;)

I got a guest pass from my friend shraven, which I installed on Friday. I know your pain.

However, I'll say that thus far, I am enjoying it. Currently, I'm playing some Horde characters on Dunemaul (a PVP server), and with shraven on the alliance side on Uldaman (regular server). I'll play the 10 days out, and then will be picking the game and subscription up after GenCon.

I don't remember my install taking that long, but the patches can sometimes be a pain, plus the fact that they patch about every 2 weeks and if you end up using any user interface add-ons then those sometimes break with the new patches.

But, it is a really fun game. I've played a undead warrior to 60 and started an undead warlock (which I think I like better).

What realms for you? I'm mainly in Frostmourne as Horde, (PvP/Oceanic, 52 closing in on 60), then somewhat in Sargeras as Horde (PvP) and Akama as Alliance (PvP).

My brothers all play on Aggramar. Or, something like that. Nice and old and full up. :p
