6:42 PM: MMO Tales
my brother and sister have both been playing world of warcraft. the
game programmers have included this feature where your character can
dance. each race of characters has a different dance-- i specifically
remember one has the moonwalk, and another does something which looks
suspiciously like a lap dance. both of my siblings are on the "player
killing allowed" server, where you're allowed to attack each other.
therefore this dance feature is obviously to be used for taunting.
this morning my sis was playing when a bunch of strangers ran up to
her and started dancing. she steeled herself for an attack, but no
attack came. instead, someone in the group said, "<3 |300|35" ("love
boobs") and they all ran away.
but that was an exception. things tend to go more like this: a few
weeks ago my bro saw a group of players approach another group. one
of the approachers said, "WE WILL KILL YOU LOLZ" and all in the group
proceeded to dance. i don't remember if killing ensued, but how could
this is so worth $55 + $13/month. i believe that's the cost. why the
heck am i not playing? oh yeah, i'm busy applying to SCHOOL. ; ;
