The interwebs is a funny place sometimes. We interact with each other through various mediums, whether it be on Facebook, our favorite MMO or social game, etc. It seems as though we’re constantly plugged into something terrestrial or otherwise. Granted, on the internet its a lot easier to hide behind your avatar and create your own world leaving details out wherever appropriate. Take this interaction between a Twitter follower as well as a RealID friend:
We’ve ran dungeons together, goofed off on RealID together and tweeted back and forth for about six months or so. How did he miss this detail about lil’ ole me? Better yet, why does everyone associate someone that plays video games as a slovenly, idle, pale, mouth breathing slob? Yes, those types are definitely out there, but with the emergence of social gaming and mainstreaming of games like Warcraft, more people have assess to them. Which probably means that your Grandma may be out there pwnin noobs and taking down raid bosses and you’d be totally oblivious to it.
So who is your gamer ego? Mine? Personal Trainer by day, fire throwing Mage by Warcraft.
A few days ago Harpy’s Nest wrote about Emoting in PvP and Navi did too. So Tomie came along to smack some PvP emoters with her purse.
Well, I’ve been after the stupid shield from Jaina in End Times and jumping into specific queue daily hoping and praying for Azure Dragonshrine. As we’re pulling the trash packs and collecting the pieces to her staff, I notice this mage has a freaking emote chain for every killshot. And for some reason the tank is pulling every single trash pack. No joke for all sixteen of her shards its this or an equally stupid variation:
And insult to injury the shield didn’t drop and I was all, “OMG, get me outta here” even though I’d normally stay. Because two more bosses of that? HELL TO THE NO!
During an excellent End Time run where healers could heal, dps pewpewed hard, tank hit stuff really hard and best of all every one got along and had friendly conversation.
We all were like, “amg, hahhahaha!” The boss was like, “OMG, I’M DEAD HERE IS YA LOOTS!” And then I left the dungeon, was in slash-2 and wanted to jump off a bridge.
