My WoW date!!

 

- Me meeting up with my date

Ok now before I go on any further I think I should clear some things up from my previous post.

'NOT A REAL DATE' DISCLAIMER

-This was not a real date as such. We just both play the game and thought we could meet up in there to play on the same realm. The 'date' part was really a joke between us. And I know what she looks like in real life. She is not a fat dude with an impressive array of handguns as suggested by the gamers over on my 'GiantBomb.com' blog. Which I'll admit was quite funny.

However, she is in fact a hot girl. Yes that's right, hot girls do actually play games. Not all of them, just the ones with a good taste in hobbies.

And lastly, me and said girl are in fact dating in real life, that's probably the most important part of the disclaimer–

 
The Date
 
Meeting with someone on WoW is always tricky. Simply because everyone I know seems to be on different realms. After some discussion I and the princess had decided to meet on her realm. Mainly to do with the fact that she was a higher level than the character on my realm.

I was pretty cool with this, but being a somewhat old fashioned 'manly man', I did feel a bit castrated by her level 80 character

-I totally had the situation under control :/

And yes, I am the light red one. NOT PINK...light red. I was going for the Hellboy look.

So after meeting up in Darnassus (the night elf spawn point), I decided to head off to the Human capital city under the impression that there might be something cool to do there.

On the way there my date had turned into a wolf and then night elf mohawked me

At this point of the date I had realised two things. One- Mr T's hair is making a comeback in modern day pop culture. And 2- this isn't how I had planned the date in my mind.

So there I was a light red night elf with a Mohawk and my date had turned into a wolf. At this point though I started to worry. I've got no idea where in the city I was going to take her! Once again she took the lead, and said for me to follow her...

Eventually we arrived at Goldshire.

I had been at Goldshire before but never realised that it's the same place they used in the South Park episode (Make Love, Not Warcraft 2006). After goofing around with some of the locals and re-enacting scenes from that episode, we headed into a local inn and kicked back for a bit. Hey it's better than just talking on MSN.

Unfortunately at this point I had to disconnect as my laptop screen was about to get fixed by a planned in house engineer appointment. I had warned the princess about this pre game, and she was pretty cool about it.

Thanks to a speedy fix I was back in Azeroth in about 15 minutes! At this point however though my date had left Goldshire and gone on a quest somewhere up north. I had decided to use my Hearthstone and teleport back to Darnassus for a hopeful pick up by the princess.

But then disaster struck! Waiting for me at the teleport point was a band of Horde looking mighty vicious. Three of them, one of which appeared to be the leader were seated on a crazed rhino. Me forgetting that I was on a 'normal' realm, and being somewhat stupid; walked up to the toughest looking one and struck it with my staff. Within 1 minute I was a spirit looking down on my awesome Hellboy light red body.

So I realised there was only one thing I could do, I had to call the princess for help. I managed to resurrect my body when the Horde had their back turned whilst ganging up on some other poor Night Elf. I ran into a nearby house and immediately contacted her. She just said 'stay put I'll be there'.

- Me hiding out, I mean waiting for the princess to arrive. I wasnt really hiding...

Within 5 minutes, she writes 'ok, all gone'. I'm thinking 'hmm maybe she's joking'. I slowly peer out through the doorway and scan the area. Peaceful. And there she was. Standing in front of me with her awesome axe weapon in hand. I think I'm in love

We then had virtual sex. JUST KIDDING! We called it a night.

'AFTER READING' DISCLAIMER TO AVOID REPETITIVE COMMENTS- No, I don't actually think I'm in love. Yes I realise that my Samurai/Hellboy character is sort of a pinkish colour. No, seriously she is not a fat dude with loads of handguns.

As long as you know each other in real life it's all good. And that was pretty funny.

Posted by MiamiRedHawks

Posted by Daryl

I have my doubts.

Posted by Linkyshinks

Far sweeter stuff is found in reality, you should make sure you take her on a date there also ^^

When I hit the Goldshire bit, I immediately though "Ah Goldshire... what better place to go on a hot internet date than the cyber capital of Azeroth. Classy!" Haha I kid. I kid. That's cool that you know each other IRL. You are a lucky man that your girl games and that was a very entertaining read. Are there any plans for a follow up?

Posted by ki11tank

i cried a little, so romantic.

That was cute read.
 
Though I'm a bit puzzled -- you say the two of you are actually dating, but then added at the end that you don't actually think you're in love? /boggle

NITE ELF MOHO! 
 
But why did you remove it? Mr.T has teh greatest hair in the world. It's been proven by science, FOOL!

I can see who is going to be the top dog for this relationship
Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Sounds like things went well...I remember my last first date when the girl I was trying to woo turned into a wolf....crazy times man.

Posted by clubsandwich

this really scares me. :|

Posted by EVO

I dunno what's more pathetic; going on a date in WoW, or me reading about it.

Posted by natetodamax

Right......

Posted by TheHBK

oh god.... in all this time you could have actually gone out with her.
We don't believe you that she is hot.  Maybe hot by WOW standards?
We don't believe you that this was not a real date.
I just can't write anymore, the idea that you try to continual explain how its not a real date and that its a joke between you too, shows how it totally was.

Posted by Relys

You are talking to *her* via mic... Right?
 
Anyways, this is pretty pathetic. If she really is a chick and you are in the same age range, I don't see why you aren't going out on a real date.

Maybe he smells.
Posted by CaptainTryHard

Damn, guys. chill about this whole thing. I'm sure/hope that this guy does plan on taking her out and spending time with her. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this was like a little "Oh you play WoW too? We should play together." Just two people with similar hobbies who happen to be dating. BTW it would have made things a bit more clear if you said that you live near each other. I'm guessing most people on here think you either met on WoW or on some online dating site, (please say no!)  
 
Also this was pretty fun to read. Well done

Posted by markB0SS
@Symphony:  well we did just start dating. Glad you enjoyed it :)
@CaptainObvious: LMAO! thats exactly what I said!@Metroid545:
@Metroid545: I like girls that can kick arse-

 @wolf_blitzer85: LOL! :P
@clubsandwich: Because you wana try it out?

Posted by markB0SS
@Relys: DUDE, I am going out with her in real life!!! DUHHHH CANT YOU READ RETARD!! and seriously, Im cooler then you, cant you see my profile pic
@TheHBK: ... shes hotter then your mum.
@CaptainTryHard: Hey dude, yeah basically I know her in real life and we're going out, I thought I made that clear with the disclaimers!!! DID NOBODY READ THE BLOD WRITING ON TOP! FFS!

Naw son, your wrong.  You aint going out with nobodies but a digital character.  Its sad really.  And you know how we all know your ass is lying?  Because nobody  goes around talking about how they are going out with a girl no one has seen or would ever meet and the only thing they can talk about is  WOW date.
We don't go around telling everyone we are super cool because we have a  fohawk and a picture of Alex.  That does not make you cool.  That just means you took a picture with Alex.
 
 "Im cooler then you, cant you see my profile pic"
"dude, you see who that is on my profile pic!? that me and Alex Navarro . Im pretty sure that means Im cooler then you"
fucking classic, classic lines son.

@TheHBK: Ok man, hold up for a second yeah. This is gaming blog right? I think Im allowed to write about gaming on it right? Who the hell wants to read about me going out on a date with a girl to the cinema or for a meal. And yeah your right Im not cooler then you because I got a photo of me and Alex Navarro, that was a bit cocky of me I agree. But I am cooler then you, cause I dont go your blog and act like a jerk saying shit about you.
 
I like people saying how they feel on my blog so long as its in a mature way and not insulting someone. So if you cant abide by that, the you can get the fuck off my blog right now. Im not forcing you to read it and Im sure as hell not on your blog acting like a jerk. So what do you say?
Posted by TheHBK
@markB0SS: Well don't post your blog to the forums.  And aint got to do nothing sucka, if I want to let you know what I think about your blog then I will do so.  It doesn't have to be mature or non-insulting.  Your threats to get off the blog don't work because this is the internets.  Grow up and realize that.  That brings us full circle to the fact that because its the internet, all we know for sure is that this "female" you supposedly met on the WOW probably looks like this.
 HOT DATE!
@CaptainTryHard: dude, hes lying.

@TheHBK: fair enough man, have fun :)

Good story, made me laugh or "lol" as some might say, also dont listen to"TheHBK", I like reading your blog and dont even care if your lying (which I doubt you are)

Posted by Cube

This...is kind of gay.

Posted by Claude

I liked it, very nice read. I don't get the WoW paranoia, but jerks will be jerks.

All the comforts of a relationship without leaving your house. Technology is fantastic in a lot of ways.

As a WoW Veteran of 5 years and a fellow romantic -- that was cute.

THANKS to everyone that appreciated the blog!!!! :) 
 
@Pie: EXACTLY! thanks man :)
@Suicidal_SNiper: karate dude, she can do karate ;)
@Claude: yeah, I wish there was a points system, where points could be deducted by moderators on people that bitch on others blogs. Might suggest it to Jeff. 
@eroticfishcake: aint it :)
@Calidreth: :)
