In 2011, I signed up for World of Warcraft. Shortly after, I was addicted and could not get enough. Be warned before you take the plunge into WoW.
1. Three words. Ultimate. Nerd. Status.
Eat. Sleep. Game. Repeat.
2. You will always be broke.
With the base game price (plus or minus 50 dollars) AND a monthly subscription of approximately 15 dollars (not to mention expensive expansion packs), it does not come cheap.
3. You will instantly become *really* cool.
Talking about your raid group, PvP achievements, and how you cannot seem to get past that one quest in Dragonblight is NOT considered interesting to non-players.
4. Unless you are a girl...
Then you will actually be cool.
5. Sleep? What sleep?
9:00 p.m.: "I'll stop playing at 10, I need to get some sleep tonight."
10:05 p.m.: "Nah, let me finish this raid first."
12:17 a.m.: "Just one more."
2:00 a.m.: "I can't stop now, I just queued for this raid."
5:26 a.m.: "Well, time to go to work."
6. You might lose your job (especially if your gaming setup looks like this).
It is really hard to maintain a nine to five job when it conflicts with your strict 12 hours a day gaming schedule.
7. No friends, no problem.
Why have real life friends when they are all online?
8. Leeroy Jenkins is easily the funniest video you will ever have seen.
Now excuse me while I go renew my subscription.
