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.

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.

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."

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.

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

The symbols from the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) that represents Woolworths.
Woolworths is translated at wow except for the case of nerds who assume wow is an acronym for World of Warcraft.
