So, Annette and I are not really playing WoW at the moment – we haven’t played for months. Though I am giving some thought to starting again sometime soon.
Anyway, today I saw a video wherein .. well, I’ll quote from the source:
“A group of horde decides to hold an ingame memorial for one of their mages who died irl. They made a few mistakes: holding it in a contested zone, publicly posting that they were going to do it, and asking that noone would interfere. How could we resist?”
Basically, this one guild logs into the character of one of their guildies who died in real life, take the character to the edge of a lake in Winterspring, and then are all “showing their respects” when the Serenity Now guildies attack, kill the dead guys character, then proceed to give some spanks to everyone else present. Then they release a movie of themselves doing it.
Totally cold. Yet funny as hell. Says something about differing approaches to thinking about video games, especially social, “second life” style of MMORPG video games.
The SN guys go on to say: “Bad taste? Lack of respect? No Human Decency? Sounds like someone should have rolled RP/PvE.”
