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.

wow
World of Warcraft.

Often the main talking point in any university(unfortunately) school and now pubs and clubs (Stop bringing webmasters to your local pubs and clubs to get him drunk for fucks sake)

Wow is often badmouthed by people who haven't played it, don't want to play or did play it and gave up playing it after finding out in order to get anywhere in the game you needed to join a large guild led by fucktards who demand you are on WoW all hours of the day to help them get some crusader sword of great justice or something equally retarded in a 12 hour dungeon run.
"So you're an online gamer? What games do you play?"

"I play wow, I have an lvl 60..."

"Sigh, another WoW player."

WoW
note: *WoW*, not wow or wow.
WoW is a health video shown to middle schoolers where a woman (normally fat and old) holds up sock puppets explaining birth and sex. It is probably one of the scariest things you'll ever see.
WoW stands for *Wonders of Wonders*
(paralyzed kid being wheeled away by the ambulance)
Person A: Dude what happened to her?
Person B: She just came out of the WoW assembly...

wow
An over used word at vault used to make other people realise how bad they are by saying it loud enough everyone can hear. Some scrubs try to use the word when they fail at games and got nothing better to say.

WoW
Etymology: ACRONYM = World of warcraft.

Definition: WoW means anything that consumes your entire life, becomes a ritual compulsion, that you obsess over daily, that you dream about, that your brain has become hardwired to, and can sometimes make you neglectful of all other pastimes, responsibilities, and activities.

Note: Also makes a clever emoticon when spelled exactly WoW.
Lord of the rings took 3 decades to complete and with all the subsequently released literature it becomes clear to see that Middle Earth was J.R.R. Tolkiens WoW.

WoW
An MMORPG created by Blizzard Entertainment (Now Activision Blizzard), a fun game that friends across the world can play together, regardless of how many miles between them.

Often blamed for causing social defunction, this game gets looked upon negatively. However, this is simply a crutch so as not to place blame on the person who cannot control his own impulses.
"Me and my friends in Iraq can still play WoW together, even though he is 14,000 miles away."

wow
1. A mysterious spell known as World of Warcraft in the form of a video game that is cast upon unsuspecting people and it slowly sucks away your soul and any social life you previously had. You ditch all your real life friends for new in-game friends and instead of planning to hang out with friends on the weekend you plan game sessions with other geeky victims to this soul-sucking game. Eventually your lifeless corpse is no longer part of the real world and you sit at your computer all day in a dimly lit basement doing the only thing you still know how to do, which is play WoW.

Common side effects of WoW include teaching yourself to self-feed off darkness and cutting a hole in your chair to place a basket under it so that you no longer have to take bathroom breaks.

2. What your response should be when your friend turns down an opportunity to hang out in favor of playing WoW.
1/2:

Friend 1: "Hey want to hang out today?"
Friend 2: "No I have a planned gaming session to go play WoW."
Friend 1: "Wow."

WoW or Wang on Wang : Where your mate and you are chogging a bitch and your wangs accidentaly come into contact with each other, but this is ok because the chick is so hot it cancels it out.
Gav turns to Angry and exclaims "That chick is so hot, I wouldnt care if we had a WoW incident when we were chogging her."
