DDO Players Poll – How Long Have You Played DDO


I’m going to mark 10 years but in reality I started playing DDO in April 2006 and have enjoyed it ever since :).


Been here since the beginning


Open Beta December 2005, while living in Japan. I remember going to the Navy exchange the night that DDO launched for Headstart, getting a new monitor, then going to see a friend’s band play at the Officers Club on Base, then going home just in time to set up new monitor and log in when the game went live.


Long enough to remember paying to get into the Harbor to avoid that brutal quest “Butcher’s Path” and what it meant to have XP debt.


I’ve been around since the closed Beta in ’05. Started in October, I think.

From The Forums


Voted! My husband and I joined in 2008 after moving 5 states away from our gaming group. Been on Argo ever since.


I started about March of 2007. I missed the first anniversary but was playing before Gianthold was released. Level cap was 12.


Haha, so embarrassing! I’ll have been playing for 2 months this coming Saturday!


i want to say that it was early march 2006ish.

tried it, liked it did something stupid and lost both the account and email that went with it.

bought a new ddo box to get a new code and played on that account since me join date.


8 years come April. First bought the game at the Air Force Exchange at Travis AFB …… (On sale )

Mok Left A Comment On An Update On The Dungeons And Dragons Movie

What scares me about the quote (quoted here) – yes while Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome. For a D&D movie, they TRIED that once, and we ended up with a movie with a Wayans brother in it, and it S-U-C-K-E-D!
