Unlike in Warcraft III, the Alliance and Horde hate each other on principle. The most rare weapons are extremely hard to obtain, as most of them have a very low chance of drop from a really difficult boss. High level raids may also take weeks to complete, depending on the difficulty.
The stereotypical WoW player is a loser that sits at home all day with no life except for WoW. There may be players like that, but many WoW players that I know are just normal everyday people that play just for fun.
Normal Person: Great job. Meanwhile, I got into Harvard, got a hell of a nice job and car, married my girlfriend, and I'm on the road to success, and you played world of warcraft?
Chadwick_JuniorXX: Aw...I got killed by C'thun for the 50th time!
AngelRender368: Rogues are so !@#$% cheap! Im never doing PVP battles ever again!
UglyFugly403: Hell yeah, my Warlock is now level 60! The same age as me! BALLIN!!
Guy: who the fuck are you anyway?
Hint for WoW players: it doesn't involve an apostrophe.
<Non-WoW Player> holy FUCK learn some English you dumbass
World of Warcraft player: "Actually, I'm a paramedic, and I work when I'm needed, I just got back from a crime scene, a man was shot and wounded, I saved his life. I play this in my spare time when I'm not playing with my dog, coaching my son's soccer team, spending time with my family or my wife. It's easy to accomplish something in this game, and it's fun too! It's so easy to get involved in the game and have a social life."
