This thread makes strong reference to the South Park episode, Make Love, Not Warcraft.*
I played WoW with my brother before we got into working out and having a life. We played for 2 years, misc. Yesterday, I was chilling with my homie and my brother and the South Park episode came on tv. After quitting WoW, I found this episode extremely hilarious and somuchreallife.jpg. I kept looking at my brother after some part to see him about to lol at some parts because so much of it is true.*For those misc brahs that are thinking about playing the game (and I have seen multiple threads on this) here is what the game is like. You do NOT want to get sucked into it.*
The episode shows what happens in real life since the beginning. How Randy tells Stan to go socialize with friends and how he should get off his computer to do so. For a WoW player the game is considered "socializing" since it's an MMO. You will start to find WoW as something that fills your socializing void and, in fact, develop this habit of staying in playing instead of actually going out and socializing.*
In WoW, dying sucks. Whenever the high level dude in the episode kills any character, they all rage. Cartman, Stans dad, the Blizzard board members, and even the high level dude rages when he gets killed in the end. In addition, when Cartman hosts the meeting, you see other characters complaining about dying when they were doing something in-game. This is all so real, damn it. Let me tell you that there's nothing more annoying than having to start at a graveyard that is far as fuark away from your corpse. I mean, most times it takes forever to walk to your body.
The blizzard admins that talk about the high level dude call him "He who has no life". Lets face it, to get good at something you have to devote time to it. A good basketball player practices his free throws, a good musician has a band, an talented painter studies theory to enhance his drawing skills, singers, etc. The same thing applies to WoW. When you become "good" at WoW you have reached the no life status. Getting good is just an excuse to keep playing the game. "Holy fuark, man. I'm sofa king good at this game".
Randy gets into the game. When a new person starts the game they're bombarded with quests to complete. In the SP episode, when Randy starts playing and his boss asks him for whatever papers he had to do, he goes on to play WoW completely ignoring his boss.*Hell, when I played and I got asked to do something pfffft phuck dat shet, ima sign up for another bg. Players become lazy and unmotivated to do things out of the game.*
Maps and drawings:
Lol, the maps and drawings on Cartmans meeting are so accurate.
Although this part is fake, the concept is true. People will do anything to level up, especially now since the game has changed a lot since when I played. This is just another excuse to sit on the computer and play WoW.
You could be 100% ectomorph, but playing WoW reflects on your body wether it's gaining weight, developing carpal tunnel, getting acne, losing muscle definition, sometimes people develop a hunch back, and even losing skin pigmentation. Also, you see the characters desks clustered with food/drinks. When I played WoW there came to a point where that's what happened to me. I would have cups, plates, silverware, etc all over my phucking desk. It was disgusting.
Sword of a Thousand Truths:
This is the way I understood this part... Randy rushes and tries to get this sword to Stan. When sucked into WoW, you feel that everything has to be done in a rush. You don't really understand why, but it's because unconsciously you want to go back and log onto WoW. In the episode you see Randy speeding and shet to play.
Killing He who has no life:
When you're this elitist brah in WoW and people kill you, it's like a punch in the gut. You don't want noobs killing you, this just makes you feel beta as phuck. LOL at the dudes face when he dies.*
What do we do now?:
LOL this is my favorite part of the episode. In WoW, wether it's pve or pvp, and you finish the game, people don't quit, or take a break. Finishing the game just means that now you can finally play the game.
I am not hating in any way. In fact, if you play WoW you probably don't relate to this. It's just a strong generalization that is true to some degree.*
Look for yourself:
