World of WarCraft. A subscription based massive multiplayer online role playing game released by Blizzard in November 2004. It is currently the largest of its kind in the world with over five million subscribers world wide (over one million in the United States). After level 60, there is very little you can accomplish unless you schedule time to play daily. Many have fallen into the trap of playing this game, and needing to get that next piece of “1337” gear to impress “n00bs” in Ironforge.

In order to become powerful enough to dominate everyone in PvP combat without trying, you need to collect the most powerful raiding armor sets. This usually requires large guilds composed of mostly high school and college students/dropouts or fat unemployed people in their 40’s cursing and complaining and making gay references over Ventrilo or Teamspeak. There is often a point system, and a lot of drama involved in gaining gear. These guilds are rarely managed by anyone with any real marketable management skill.

Long term exposure to this game has hazardous side effects to ones life. Before you know it, your friend base starts shrinking. Your wife/girlfriend leaves. You become bitter, and play the game even more to escape while popping down your Prozac with lukewarm Mountain Dew. You had four jobs with periods of unemployment in the past year, and you live in your parents basement while posting up generalized, uncited, bias, unproven generalized and opinionated rants on some message board bitching about how something is out of balance. The few friends you have left (who all also play WoW) at your community college (which you have been in for 6 years only to stay on your parents insurance plan) use terms like DPS in real life conversations.

Most can greatly improve their life situation by quitting the game. It’s not so much of what the game does, but rather what it prevents you from doing while playing. Once liberated from WoW, those extra 30-120 hours a week can be put to productive use.
Yeah, Joe used to be the star quarterback. He also had a hot girlfriend, and a academic scholarship to Harvard. Now, he is in his mid 20’s still living at home always playing WoW. Almost never hear from him anymore.

The word used when something pointless happens and you are so mad. It also is used when you have nothing to say because the situation is so stupid.
1)"Jen and Jason hooked up"
"WOOOOOWWW thats pointless"

2)"Wow!! She is so annoying!"

3) "Wooooowwww" *Rolleyes*

Wow
I speak out of experience World of warcraft makes you addicted not like other games dose. First we got the pleasure of playing like we get from all other games.
Then we got the Grinding part that takes a lot of time, the funny part is that it's usual boring.
To play the game you need to grind for gold so you can repair your equipment and buy stuff that is needed for raiding etc...
Then we got the Part where you get new equipments so you can get better this is like a suctions.
«OMG i want a new Weapon!» It's so much we must do so it takes to much time.
To be honest i don't recomand to start playing world of warcraft if your young =')
Even though it's a very good game and needs alot of teamwork and focus... reading, understanding and such.

All the wow playing also know they are addicted... on the forums write... sorry guy im quiteing wow... and everyone write back "yes sure, i expect you back tomorrow haha" it's takes 1 weak and She/he is back.
Friend: «Hey, WOW Player Let's get out and have some fun»
WOW player: «Man i can't I'm in Blackwing layer... It's so fucking boring gah!»
Friend: «Man... why don't join me out then!»
WOW player: «Man I need DKP so i can get a item soon»
Friend: «Man Your so addicted to this game is sick... Your fucking bored and you still don't get out since you want DKP to items... and the only thing you are talking about is WOW WOW WOW WOW you sound like a freaking dog!»
WOW player: «Sorry i can't get out today»

A game made by Blizzard Entertainment in which every character in the end of the game is exactly the same. The only thing that seperates one guy from the other isn't skill at all it is time played and gear obtained. But one thing is true it is addicting to many people.
Yo Steve, are you going to get on WoW tonight?

An abreviation for World of Warcraft, a game people only bad mouth because they don't have the money to pay the monthly fee.
"WoW is the gayest game in the world, I might get it if my mom lent me enough money."

to be only said when provided with fresh new revelation from a preacher's message. Can also be used if in awe of whats being said, how it is being said or who is saying it.

Originated from Jurgen Matthesius at Phenomena 2005, Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.
Preacher: "The Holy Ghost poured his annointing in the book of Acts, yet is still continuing to pour it out, therefore we have no excuse as a generation to not be working in the Spirit"
Congregation: "Wow"
