 Post subject: The Reason we play WoW

This old blog post arguing against Real ID is the best and most entertaining explanation I've ever come across for why we're all stuck to this game. Be aware there's some coarse language, if you have to worry about school profanity filters or delicate sensibilities.

I was wondering why I spend so much time on this game.

Now I know : INTERNET DRAGONS! :lol:

Shade is cool. She's quite funny. :)

She's a co-host on All Things Azeroth podcast www.allthingsazeroth.com (it's one I tune into now and then) and she does the Wow Insider Weekly podcast roundup listing all the podcasts out at the moment: http://wow.joystiq.com/category/weekly-podcast-roundup/

In fact, she did an interview on Ladies of Leet early last year all about Internet Dragons.

She writes some useful stuff and knows quite a bit of lore ect...

Awesome link, that was really funny. Just in case somebody around here has been living under a rock, the blog post was in reaction to a plan from Blizzard to implement displaying the real names of people posting on the official forums, which they fortunately withdrew after a lot of protest from the player community. Real ID is still implemented in-game, but it is entirely voluntary and your name will only be visible to those people for whom you give permission. It is a nice way to keep in contact with real-life friends, because you can still chat even if you're on different factions or even on different servers (and apparently even different battle.net games (at some point in the near future)).

But yeaaaah INTERNET DRAGONS FTW :mrgreen:
