Well for me I created this account back in 05 as you all can see and that was beacuse I got a link from Dark and Light forum to this site showing off some new screenshots of the game.

So I desided to create an account and join in, man what a ride, I'm quite stunned I haven't been perm ban yet ( going thrue old respons i have made).

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    The lack of a game I was enjoying made me join.  Was hoping for some inspiration but instead I have just bashed GW2 a lot. 

    currently playing: DDO, AOC, WoT, P101

    I think I was getting tired of WoW and just starting to get interested in MMORPGs in general.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Guild Wars. Was the first time I wanted tons of info on an mmo.

    Been here a long time, but think it was  WoW that prompted me to join.

  • Trudge34Trudge34 Stevens Point, WIPosts: 392Member Uncommon
    My hunt for a new game brought me here. Read for a few months before actually joining because it seemed that there were quite a few people that had my viewpoint on where we are at for MMOs and where we'd like them to go in the future. Not really a specific game, but just the mass of very similar games coming out that made me sign up.

    Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERA
    Tried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...
    Currently Playing: GW2

    Can't remember. Joined in '07, so perhaps LotRO.

    Now we're calling prostitutes "sex workers". What's next? Calling hit men "end-of-life technicians"?

    How about: none?

    I just wanted to talk to people about this and that :).
  • XAPKenXAPKen Northwest, INPosts: 5,020Member Uncommon

    Spring '08.  No specific game had me join.  Just wanted to get more exposure to the MMORPG genre.


    It's been a fun ride.  Learned plenty.  I'm not much of a socializer or debater, but join in conversation if I find a topic interesting.

    Ah yeah... it has been a while.  I think I was playing Neocron and SWG when I joined... might have had an Anarchy Online sub going as well, or Asheron's Call 2.  

    I was looking for a site that contained game info and release dates for this specific genre, and stumbled uppon  Previously I used to visit for all my release date info, which ultimately bit the dust in 2004.

    No specific reason. Just wanted to know more about the games that are out there. Yeah, a long time ago. :)
  • FusionFusion VaasaPosts: 1,358Member Uncommon

    Can't recall, if it was due to a game or just general chit-chat eagerness about MMORPG's

    When I got tired of WoW first time I started to come here, then few years after I made an account

    Was playing Lineage 2, knew of EQ and had tried Shadowbane for 10 minutes (prior to L2) and just couldn't get into the game world.

    I don't remember if I had tried the wow beta by this time or not but I was wondering what other types of mmo's were out there so joined here.

  • erictlewiserictlewis Cottondale, ALPosts: 3,019Member Uncommon

    For me it was Lotro. Turbine told is if we came over here and created an account, we would get a free cloak if we voted LOTRO game of the year. Thus fixing the vote. This was also the same year that Turbine fixed the vote for march madness over at the excapist magazine.

    I believe it was my transition from FFXI to WoW that lead me to this site.

    Had been lurking here and other places for months. Had been following the development of STO and created my account with the intention of making just one post. There was a bunch of misinformation going around at that time, and I foolishly thought I could clear some of it up.

    Then I never left.

    The Chronicles of Spellborn. I miss it, even the howlers.

    It takes one to know one.

  • GreyfaceGreyface Detroit, MIPosts: 390Member

    That's a great question.  I'm not really sure.

    In May 2004...  hmmmm.   I was still playing DAoC after the Trials of Atlantis expansion in 2003, but I had quit sometimel before New Frontiers in June 2004.  I think I must have been gameless.  Makes sense, as this is where I always go when I'm gameless.


  • NadiaNadia Canonsburg, PAPosts: 11,866Member Uncommon

    i guess everquest but i was seeking gaming sites in general -- not specific to my current mmo


    at the time, was my favorite gaming site  (now defunct)

  • KingJigglyKingJiggly Simpsonville, SCPosts: 777Member
    Gw2, and I try to stay in my own forums : P
  • TheelyTheely Posts: 368Member Uncommon

    I joined for a few reasons:

    1. More info on Dark and Light and Morning (or whatever it was called at the time)
    2. The awesome give-a-ways it use to have.
    3. The friendly community it use to have.
    Now I just lurk because everything above has vanished.
