So just about everybody at work plays World of Warcraft, and they’ve been trying to get me in the game along with them. I would have several months ago, but Blizzard has this crazy notion that you should first pay $60 for the software to be able to create an account, and then they want another $15/month to play… $75 to TRY a game for one month is absolutely ridiculous so I told them if they can find me a Virgin key (game code to create a character that can be used only once), I would try the game.
Today, one of my coworkers brought me an ad from a magazine with the WoW software and a key good to create an account. It even came with a 14 day free trial so I can get bored of it with in 2 weeks and cancel. hehe…
About 1:30 I started to set up the account. It’s now 2:54 AM and the damn thing is STILL installing updates… I had version 1.7.0…. It downloaded 1.8.0 which took about 30 minutes.. Then I logged in and it downloaded 1.8.1…. Then I logged in and then it downloaded 1.8.3 which has taken about 30 minutes so far..
ALL I WANT TO DO IS PLAY THE DAMN GAME!!!!!
I guess I’ll have to try it another night. I’m getting tired just waiting for this thing to finish. I’m gonna create my new character (hopefully) then go to sleep!
