Once upon a time, 5 years to be exact, a semi new WoW player rolled a new character on a brand new PvP server (Ursin) with friends from school in order to start fresh so we could all level together with no one having any advantage. Well suddenly after an hour or so of playing as alliance everyone, except for one person who was out to lunch, decides to delete their alliance characters and reroll as horde. Well the poor guy who was out eating lunch came back and found out that he had been abandoned on a new server and all the friends who were supposed to level with him were now his most hated enemies. Whatever was he to do? Well...he was a stubborn bastard and he decided to stay alliance and level to 60 to spite all his friends. 5 years later and all the friends have either stopped playing or moved to other servers and none of them are on Ursin...except for the lone alliance member.
In case my faithful readers have not figured it out by now (and if you didn't...I have a bridge to sell you) that lone alliance player was yours truly. I had bought a guild charter the day we all started on Ursin so we could make a guild of RL friends from school but they all vanished so I lost their signatures when they went horde. I had to spend a night spamming for signatures in Goldshire along with Battman (trying to get Dark Knights of Gotham up and running) and someone from Red. Took me a day to get the guild together but on July 24th 2005 Avengers of Azeroth was finally born. Thats right we are turning 5 on Saturday and man has it been a long and fun journey to get here. I leave you readers with a fun story from our vanilla raiding days and maybe if you guys are lucky I'll post more fun experiences from the past 5 years.
