Indeed. I have been playing on and off since launch. It's been a lot of fun. I like a bit of a balance, though...so I make sure to stick with a bunch of things. (I still don't have an 80, btw...way too busy with all this Christmas cheer--or the fact that all of my friends and I are off school for a month)

On a side note, what the hell is LARPing?

Someone did not even bother to read the first page of the thread.

That is prob the biggest misconception of people that play WoW. In fact that is prob the most ignorant statement I have heard. To assume that is to assume that gamers in general don't have a social life. Like some how magically WoW is the only game that is addicting at all.

I have had many friends sucked into other games more so than I have with WoW, if you get so sucked into WoW that you have no social life than that speaks more to the type of person you are: weak...

EDIT
On a side note I find it rather funny that you have "Hardcore Gamer Clan" in your sig and you are harping on people that play games...

For the bold--LOL.

As for the rest of the post, I agree. I hate when people use the WoW Southpark episode as an example of how ridiculous MMOs are. Did you realize there were five...FIVE 'super-hardcore' players out there when they did that? Erik, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and the fat dude that was killing everyone. Everyone else was just a casual. They even stated that (though, in a subtle way) at the start of the episode.

Why is it a bad thing for a company to make a profit? I do believe that is the whole basis for starting your own business.... I could care less if they made 100 trillion a month. They put out a good product people want. Stop the idiotic idealism.
