WoW... An Online RPG Funeral Gets Ambushed - April 6, 2006, 11:20 AM

Not a BIG fan of WoW at all, but found this funny as hell.

World of Warcraft, otherwise known simply as WoW, is one of the most popular and successful computer games in history. It is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game that 6 million people pay $10 -15 per month to play. This type of popularity creates a sample size that is large enough to reflect the forces that control it. In Layman's terms, with this many people playing this online game at any given time human nature tends to get a stronger representation.

The first "reality" check was a bug that caused a plague to outbreak and affect people's characters in certain cases instantly killing any player below a certain level.

The second "reality" check was when this group of Warcraft players otherwise known as a guild interrupted a memorial service. Apparently, some dude dies in real life who is a popular WoW player. The people in the game think it would be nice to have a memorial for the player so they log into his account, take the character to a lake, and set it up for everyone to come pay their respects.

A bunch of dudes decide this would be a great time to ambush everyone so they run over a hill, kill the dead guy's character, and then wipe out everyone who was there to show their respects. They filmed the whole thing and put it on the net for everyone to see.

It's sad the amount of time and money some people spend on that game. It doesn't even look like it could be remotely entertaining either.

Now having 6 stars on Grand Theft Auto -- not THAT is entertaining!

Hey... hey... I played that game for a bit, and it was fun in it's own rite. Some people role play, assume the aspect of the character and such and some of us just went on to tool around and level. I would have done that shit.

That rogue sneaks up and owns his ass and everyones like WTF!!!! and then they all get killed HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! FUCK YEA!!! That's the kind of shit I love... a total disrespect for a silly notion. I wish I had been there, I wish I had thought of it.

It's not that I'd do it to be an asshole, it's just that I despise roleplaying in a game so much, and the premise of the "pay your respects" to some collection of ones and zeros that someone set up as an effigy revolts against everything in me.

The only thing I regret is that I cant read what he (the rogue we follow through the run and the battle) says after it's all over... cause I know what I would have said.

"Yup... I just fucked your mom."
