Picking on Video Gamers for a Change
The "World of Warcraft" community responds to South Park making fun of them in what, to all appearances, was a thirty minute commercial for "World of Warcraft."
I dont play all the time.... I hadnt played sicne janauary reactivated this month...... Everyone I know tells me not to play... I watch a show like that... just reinforces it...... If nothing else I will take my money away from blizzard... that episode convinced me.
If anyone didn't know that they were a loser 4 playing WoW b4 u watched this episode, then you baddly needed to see it and you should be very greatful for it.
hahaha after watching that fat dude pwn all those south park noobs it gave me the urge to go ganking. So i did and had a blast camping a shaman lowbie who was ganking in darkshire until a 60 mage came to help him, then i camped his body until he quit. BAWHAHAHA
Gamers have been working hard to gain mainstream acceptance for gaming in general and for MMORPG gaming in particular for a while now. This sets us back quiet a bit; and it hurts to think that is how blizzard themselves view there 'valued' customers. I won't stop playing, but it does leave a bitter taste in my mouth whenever I send in my $15.00.
Yeah man, South Park mades fun of the community. It's because the community sucks.
That said, one thing that did bother me, was that a certain group of players was unceremonoiusly crapped on, once again, by Blizzard's PR machine. The Horde. Like the screenshots on the boxes from the original release the horde is under-represented or ignored all together. This episode will undoubtedly bring in tons of new players to the game, and naturally, they're going to want to emulate the characters from this episode. Expect a slew of dwarves named Kartmun, and other such derivatives. With Blizzard focusing more on world pvp, where server demographics actually matter, unlike bgs, I think the Alliance is going to have their natural numbers (not every server but most) advantage vastly augmented.
you can't take a joke and are extremely pathetic and youre a guildless nub lolz
Luckily we have Australian tabloid television reporters to set us all straight on what an insidious menace this horrible game is.
