    I said it to Josh in chat and I'll say it again.

    Though I'm not really shocked at over 100 hours in a week I'm more shocked at the lifetime total of his hours.

    I mean a student on summer vacation with no responsibilities could easily spend over 8 hours a day having fun and someone addicted like him could easily spend all of it on WoW.

    However...over 1,500 hours total?! I use to think an RPG that in time it took 100 hours to complete + all the sidequests + playing multiple times for different paths (good/evil, melee/magic, etc) was alot.

    How are his eyes? Does he only speak in game terms? How pale is he?

    Sincerely,
    The Vault Dweller

    it's rank 14 in the pvp system (the rank has a different name for alliance & horde, so people just refer to it as r14. the pvp system is nothing more than a grind btw). it's the top you can achieve. it provides you with the cool loot.

    however, it requires you to have no life at all for 3 months & play for 10 hours a day. you're better off joining an endgame raiding guild imo.
    they're giving paladins to horde & shamans to alliance. 'nuff said...

    i think i bailed out just in time.
    lies! i have returned!
    1500 hours is "only" 62,5 days. thats less than me, but i never played more than 30 hours a week.

    and you really can't compare a normal RPG with WoW, VD. WoW is a lot more grinding & repetition than a normal game.

    in the end, you dont play the game for the game. you play it for the friends you have in it. (and to a minor extend for being the first to clear stuff worldwide if you're in a real endgame guild. it's a race. :) )

    btw, it take 7 to 12 ingame days to become lvl60 on average.

    Another of my horror story friends.


    And about Firthy, he rarely does nights out or the like anymore. All he ever talks about is WoW, even to the point of insulting people over their characters, "nooby warrior" being a particularly grinding term.

    What the fuck happened to PCs? I thought they were on the rise. More people playing, new gamers gaming, what with things like, well, WoW.

    So, wow, forgot about this thread, glad to see its still alive.

    I still play 25 hours a week, but nothing akin to what some people play, its downright unhealthy at some point.

    Anyways, my guild is currently beating its head on Nefarian. Considering we still have the same core of 25 people we've had since December, I think we're doing well. I play for the people, not the loot or anything.

    www.projectpandemonium.com Somehow I got roped into GL. :shock:

    I hope heaven has areas for grinding and PvP for that guy when he dies of malnutrition or he may as well go to hell since its obvious he cant live without it.

    Hooked on WoW? well i can understand that for sure because i played the damn game for like 2 years(started in US Beta Test or was it Stress Test, then Korean Beta and finally it came to europe).

    I had to go away on a holiday for 2 weeks because i wanted to stop playing the game but just couldnt. The game is so bad and yet so addictive i dont know should i cry or laugh :P

    why bad? well the game is too "kid safe" i mean you dont drop anything even if you die and this is really bad because it makes pvp, guilds and items pretty useless. You need to grind shit for 24/7 and do instances like crazy to get better stuff and for what? So you stand around the bank and let everyone else see how "1337" you are.

    I hear some pathetic WoW-addict saying "plz you can kill ppl with those epic itamz!" well sure but whats the point of killing when you cant humiliate and take some of their stuff. I played Dransik Classic wich had this system and it was wonderful because it rewards those who play much and being in a good guild is very usefull because even if you loose some item your guild would start a war and sometimes the enemy would give the item back because of the politics. Only reason you need to be in a guild in WoW is that you go to better instances to grind some more useless items.

    I would prolly start playing again if Blizzard would open even 1 "hardcore" server. If you get killed you drop something that you equip or is in your bags. there would be no BG's and more World-PvP ie Factions would fight for areas and those who are winning are granted access to good instances like BWL etc.

    Quests could be improved too but thats not my biggest consern because i wouldnt call WoW RPG like Fallout. Quests in WoW are "go kill x amount of creatures and come back" or "Deliver this shit to someone and he will tell you to go kill x amount of creatures" :P

    world of warcraft

    It is really strange I played WOW for awhile but got bored with it and now all of a sudden I feel like playing it again. An I really don't know why?

    I guess I only got to level 32 so I might as well try and get to 60 but it is so hard with a kid and a social life.

    SO if any of you guys have characters let me know what server you are on.

    The best thing that came from WoW was the Funeral Massacre. That was fun to watch :D
