Are there many older gamers playing W101?

To Laadyx, I am an 'older' player. Though I do see to many young players who are rude and obnoxious to other players. Your age doesn't matter here. Only that you enjoy playing the game, no matter what your level is.

I just started playing this game a few days ago and I must say, I was rather impressed. I just got the feeling that whoever was behind its creation had taken great care when working it.

I'm feeling sort of bad at the moment, though. Since we're not allowed to post ages, let's just say I'm not a little kid anymore. I asked my boyfriend if he thought I was being too kiddish and he said "a little" but that it was no big deal and that he wanted me to have fun and not have to worry about drama. Because before I started playing W101, I played another online game that has been full of drama lately. People are constantly KSing you (kill stealing which is where you purposely run off and attack something someone else is already working on killing which can mean them losing credit for the kill in the end) , even higher levels (we're talking people in their's 80's and 90's, it's nuts), and you're always getting called names and people can just be really rude in-game. Unfortunately, the reporting system is more complicated than it should be and the reports seem to be largely ignored and the rules are almost never enforced unless one involving money is broken. It's stressful and games weren't meant to be stressful, they were meant to be fun and help relieve stress.

I like this environment but I guess I'm just wondering how normal it is to be playing this game as an older individual. Please don't post any ages though as it would seem that is not allowed. :)
Count me as one. My daughter came home from visiting her father when she was little playing this game. She had seen her father playing and liked it enough that he got her started. I saw her playing it and liked what I saw too. That was back when this game was less than a year old. I am not always regular, but I am a night owl and play most in the wee hours of the morning. You would be surprised how many people I run into at that time of the day. Most are obviously parents of other players, but I have met grandparents there who I have become close friends with over the years. The adult plalyers I have met have been much quicker to offer help with quests, and I do the same.

I met an older woman a few years back, she was super friendly and shared the story of being a widow, and losing her husband.

Time flies when you're having fun! Back when I made this account I was just a kid...it's been a while. It's almost kind of crazy to think about the milestones I've passed while this account existed

I am 19, currently in college. I've always been kinda embarrassed to tell people I play this game. Nowadays, I don't care who sees me playing it. I say if grown men can enjoy My Little Pony, then I can enjoy this!
