Hello, I enjoy WarCraft, though all I have at the moment is WarCraft 3 and its expansion, and a bunch of books. Personally, I thing the MMOG thing sort of ruined things slightly for me, as I prefer to be an Overmind, as it were. (A little StarCraft reference for those who have played that series.) Also, I don't want to pay $15 every month just to play. Of course, if there was a Free-to-Play version, like Runescape, which had a limited number of quests and abilities, that might be bearable, providing that I only had to pay to get the game, but not to play.

For those players who like Warcraft, but prefer RTS games, WoW did ruin it, because they basically stopped making Warcraft RTS games. Unfortunately, since getting the lore in sync between WoW and any new RTS game would be complicated and WoW makes so much money, they probably won't make a new Warcraft RTS, but who knows. If WoW subscribership falls off enough and fast enough, they might consider a new Warcraft RTS aimed at tournament players and followers like StarCraft 2. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 22 Sep 2011 3:22 PM Pacific
FYI, the World of Warcraft Starter Edition is basically a free-to-play version of WoW up to level 20. If you have the machine specs to play it and a good internet connection, check it out. It isn't freemium or true f2p, but at least you can get a taste of WoW. Hopefully someday Blizzard will get wise and make the monthly payment plan tiered so it is more affordable and more fair ($5/month for vanilla WoW Icon 16x16, $8/month for Bc icon, $12/month for Wrath-Logo-Small, $15/month for Cataclysm-Logo-Small and beyond would be my recommendation). --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 22 Sep 2011 3:53 PM Pacific

Adding fan fiction... Edit

You can add fan fiction to WoWWiki, but by policy it is not allowed in the main namespace (with no prefix like User:username/) unless it is very famous, satirical (see {{Silly}}), or featured on an official Blizzard site. You can put your fan fic at User:Alockwood1/WarCraft Versus StarCraft Play. See WW:FANFIC and WW:PA for info on how to format your fan fic article.

On the WoWRP wiki, you can add it to the main namespace at w:c:wowrp:WarCraft Versus StarCraft Play. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Oct 2011 1:18 PM Pacific

See my response at User_talk:Fandyllic#Can_one_add_a_Fan-Fic.3F. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Oct 2011 1:58 PM Pacific
How you have it on your user page is fine. You might want to put it at User:Alockwood1/WarCraft Versus StarCraft Play, though. Then you could link to it from Starcraft. You could put the following wikicode in the Starcraft article before == External links ==:

It looks good. I did a little editing, but it should be fine. As you learn more wiki-coding you can give it a little more formatting. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Oct 2011 2:40 PM Pacific
