That -totally- went over my head. But it reminds me of something.

When I was in middle school we had some fundraiser or something and got (among other, more important things) a jukebox for the lunchroom. This was a bad idea for several reasons, but one of the problems was that you didn't have enough time to listen to the song you paid for. My friends and I utilized this when we had the first (of three) lunch periods for the day.

The songs were like 5 cents each or something. We pooled our money and selected "Scatman" over and over again, ensuring that every day, for their entire lunch period, the second and third lunch kids would get nothing but Scatman on repeat.

Bullying the Jukebox, as the Bouncing Souls sang one time. This is the best idea I've heard all week. "If the Scatman can do it, so can you!!"

As a true witness of WoW retardation,(one of my "friends" lost all his social life to it)
I find this amazing.

I've even witnessed In-game weddings ( they have servers for role playing), but nothing as great as this.

As a true participant in WoW retardation (not any of this stuff though) I can confirm this is amazing for both ends of the spectrum.

By the way, I'd like to hear Iggy's thoughts on the great game-like enslaver of gullible Americans and Asian gold farmers.

Did you play during the whole CHINA GOLD RUSH epidemic in WoW?!?

(I'm not sure if it's still a wide spread "problem" as it was when I witnessed it )

Well, these dudes bombed a funeral.

A chronology: various posts from the official forums are shown making various inflammatory comments. The reason for these is then shown: an in-game funeral was held for a player who died in a car wreck. One guild gets together and charges off to kill everyone there, while a few guys stand around and make sure the funeral is actually going on. Then, mass slaughter happens, and I think one guy goes over and makes fun of the "corpse." The video ends with the attacking guild proclaiming their assholism, which is the exact opposite of the end of the one-man play 'Rod Becker's Defending the Caveman.'

Or thereabouts.

And you forgot to insult Westerners for playing these game-like atrocities. Go on, emasculate us!

This whole thread rules.

I dunno, when you think about it, wouldn't it make perfect sense for the opposing force to ambush a funeral where the enemy is in mourning and off guard?

SO was there a car in WOW that killed a player... or was he killed in, what MMORPG players call "Real Life" ?

Bombing a funeral... nothing more tasteful, reminds me of tribal times, get the enemy while weak! also i think of MACHIAVELLI- The prince

In real life.

I'm curious; has there been any similar incidents (funeral attacks, weddings, ect ect) in other MMORPGS like RO or EQ?

I'm SURE. There is an endless struggle between bullies and people who unintentionally DEMAND to be bullied.

Crap like this is what ultimately turns me off of MMORPGs... that and they eat up free time. I'm not knocking people who get into that 'virtual world' state-of-mind. It's just not for me.

"etiquette" , posted Thu 23 Mar 12:19post reply

The game was fine pre level 60. Once you get to 60 the end game turns into Everquest. I uninstalled the game pretty quick.

I did get a lot of fun for a bit because apparently I had a knack of making people stupidly angry without provocation.

This tauren shaman kept trying to kill me for some unknown reason. He kept losing over and over. He couldnt believe that his purple gear couldnt beat a player with greens and blues. He made an alliance character and sent me angry messages every once in a while:

ffffffff

I got stuck guarding a boring spot in battlegrounds, so I started fishing with a stealthed druid behind me. The alliance loses as usual, but a player kept blaming me for everyone's idiocy. I sent him a gift:

ffffff

And this one takes the cake. I was standing around talking to a friend and some idiot sends me messages saying that I stole copper from his bags. I tried to explain him you cant do that. Apparently my word had no value because he was level 60 and I was level 21:

ffffff
fffffff2

Yeah, that's the most succinct and accurate description of WoW I've seen. I made the mistake of starting on a PvP server (I'm too much of a pacifist...), and despite being invited into a nice enough guild, I lost interest after getting my Alliance Druid to 32.

There were a lot of fun things about the game, but I mostly derived my enjoyment from grouping with nice people. Unfortunately, finding those kind of people was a difficult endeavour.


EDIT: Those pictures are quite amusing.

Lol, this would be the ultimate treachery! Even at the walls of Troya, both sides made truces to properly bury their fallen comrades!

Hmm, but that's an effective tactic indeed. I think Zhuge Liang himself could learn a thing or two about strategy from these WoW guys...

Any idiot can do that, it's all a matter of style. I don't see any of those people doing any Empty City strategies if their life depended on it.

Since they are not likely to get out of their bedrooms, surely they will never have to face such scenario. God, in its infinite wisdom, protects you from what you fear most, in their case, real life *chortles*
