Despite common belief, quite a fun little game.

While, sometimes, World of Warcraft - or WoW as it is abbreviated - can get tedious, there's always something to do in other parts of the vast world Azeroth, where the Warcraft storyline was set (except for part of Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, which was set in an alien dimension known as Draenor from which the Orcs originated. Incidentally, Draenor is going to be released in WoW with the upcoming expansion - the Burning Crusade).

Whether it's questing, grinding (exterminating enemies on a large scale for experience), or brushing up your trade skills - mining, blacksmithing, leatherworking and engineering to name but a few - WoW always has something to do.

And failing that, WoW (at least on my server) is full of friendly, helpful players who love conversation - you see, the chat is one of the major aspects of WoW. With chat channels (general, trade, local defense, looking for group), private messaging (or /whispering), group chat, guild chat, and a multitude of others, WoW is a game as much based on communication as on skill.

WoW is split into two factions - the Alliance and the Horde, which are then made up of four races each. Quite simply, the Alliance can choose to be Humans, Dwarves, Night Elves and Gnomes, and the Horde may pick Orcs, Trolls, Tauren or the undead Forsaken. All of the races have elaborate back-stories, particularly the reason why no Gnomes featured back in Warcraft III. Along with nine classes, each with their own advantages, and millions of appearance combinations, WoW is certainly a many-faceted game.

And, since it is merely a matter of opinion anyway, I'm going to go on and say: I like WoW. WoW doesn't suck.
Terry hit level 56 on World of Warcraft with his Gnome Warlock yesterday.

Jack got an epic mount for his Human Paladin last week.

I have a level 28 Gnome Mage on Nordrassil, called Khemri. /whisper me!

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"
