The latest gaming atrocity produced by the infamously uncreative and consumer-unfriendly Blizzard, in which you play as a character in a massive and oftentimes lag-ridden world, performing endlessly redundant quests time and again in hopes that you'll achieve that elusive 'Level 60', where the game supposedly actually becomes fun.

You have several races and classes to choose from in a ridiculously unbalanced classful character development scheme, but regardless of what class you choose, you will inevitably be outdone by the also infamous race-class combination, 'Tauren-Shaman'.

Not unlike Blizzard's by-gone hit Diablo 2, you will also spend endless amounts of time looking for the best gear in the game, due mostly to the fact that this game, like most games of its kind, is gear and level centric, as opposed to being based upon skill.

A very weak strategic element is present as well that few players seem to be capable of wrapping their brains around, in spite of the fact that there are step-by-step guides to every quest for every class available online.

It is also worth noting that players must pay a monthy fee of fifteen dollars in order to play this terrible, bug ridden game. (Fifteen dollars isn't much, but the author of this definition wouldn't pay fifteen cents to waste any span of time playing World of Warcraft.)

Also bear in mind that the game frequently suffers 'exploits'; bugs in the game that players utilize to quickly gather money and resources, or to quickly defeat opponents. Taking advantage of an exploit of any kind - including standing on the roof to avoid monster attacks, European servers only, and engaging in the active harvesting of money and valuable objects, also known as 'gold farming' - may result in an unconditional ban. Contesting said bans will result in a slap to the face.

In other words, World of Warcraft and its success are both proof that gamers today have absolutely no taste.

A good fun alternative to life.
Sex, career, friends, money and power. All
of these things are just distractions trying to pull you away from World of Warcraft

A highly entertaining mmorpg that is played by a wide variety of people. some get addicted to it like its crack cocaine, and some only play it a few times a month. The level of addiction all depends on the person playing it.

The world's most effective form of birth control.
Pregnancy, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Herpes. These are just some of the things that World of Warcraft players need not be concerned about.

A computer game whose participants apparently don't know how to correctly make words plural.

Hint for WoW players: it doesn't involve an apostrophe.
<WoW Player> In WoW you can be Orc's, Troll's, Undead's, and the Tauren's. The Alliance will get the Human's, Gnome's, Dwarve's, and the Night Elve's.
<Non-WoW Player> holy FUCK learn some English you dumbass

Taken mistakenly as a peer to EverQuest or EverQuest II, it is an entertaining game in which a player learns how to cooperate as a team, and harnesses competition, unlike EverQuest II. The irony behind half of the definitions under this category is this: If you'd read the back of the box, you would realize that it states "even if you only have a couple of minutes, World of Warcraft's superior quest system offers quick gameplay." The sad truth is that people don't want to accept the fact that many of the players on this game have lives, jobs, spouses, ect. They see that it is an MMORPG, and automatically assume that it's a parallel to EQ and EQ2.
definition conformist: "wow is a game when ppl see no pussy and ppl cant get laid, n tehy don have jobs"

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."

definition conformist: "w/e u nerd, go bak to ur moms basement"

World of Warcraft player: "Er... right o_O"

EQ2 Player: "YEAH I GOT MY QUANTUM PHYSOCIA NHULTH'S ARMOR +1"

World of Warcraft player: "Congratulations! I'm glad you accomplished your goal. I hope you're enjoying your game. ^_^"

definition conformist: :eq2 fagg ur more loser than wow player stupid fag go hav sex w/ ur dog"
