UrCa: I don't know how much you earn, but even at my low-end wage that would be <.5% of what I would be making over the next 5 years (assuming I never get a raise). A substantial amount, yes, but hardly a footnote in the grand scheme of things. If you enjoyed it during the time you played it, then I'd consider it money well spent.
lilplatinum: A thousand bucks over 5 years is not a lot of money. That's like buying, what, 3 or 4 console games a year? Drinking 60 or so beers at a bar a year?Yeah, little shiat adds up if you stretch it out over a long period of time, it doesn't make it a lot of money. I am willing to bet that among forms of entertainment you spent money on in the past, WoW probably rates as a pretty good deal.
lilplatinum: lilplatinum: I enjoyed WoW back when I played it, being on a pvp server made the monotony of grinding not so monotonous,That being said, now that I quit smoking dope I'm not sure I could grind anymore.
usernameguy: texdent: Half the movie is going to be about mining, enchanting, skinning, etc.The other half will be people hurling racial slurs.
karmachameleon: I had fun, but there was also an addictive quality to it that made me feel a little unsavory at times, increasingly so the longer I played. I miss the game the way an alcoholic misses drinking, so it's probably best I stay away from such games. To each his own, this isn't a commentary on anyone else who considers it money or time well spent.
Soulcatcher: There is plenty of lore and lots of great back stories, and quirky humor and in jokes to make a great WoW movie. That isn't what will happen though. The hack writers they hire will do the bare minimum required to make it even recognizable by WoW fans and still be able to call it a "film" just like all of the other game movies.I hope I'm wrong, but Hollywood is pretty entrenched in lowest common denominator mode these days, and seem happy with churning out garbage just for a big opening weekend.
phantomht: just hope its better than the Dungeons and Dragons movie.God that SUCKED.LOTR sucked too. Elijah Wood. really? smh.Have zero interest in any Hobbit movie also.and ppl biatching about the cost of WoW. really? .... really?Even at minimum wage the cost is 2 hours of work per month.I think someone mentioned upstream somewhere.... if i wasnt spending 15$ a month playing WoW id be spending a WHOLE LOT MORE doing something else in the same amount of time.
PsyLord: Who are they going to cast to play Leeroy Jenkins?
had98c: A WoW movie but no EQ movie huh? Lame. Also, need to make a freaking Wheel of Time movie already.
ProfessorOhki: Starcraft would make a better movie.
thecpt: enry: moon suckedI can easily see how its not your thing, especially if you're not a fan of the genre (kind of a niche one, slow space sci fi). Nevertheless, he did the best movie that genre has seen in awhile so I'd still expect good things from him.
xenomorpheus: We ahve to agree, it won't be a warcraft movie without......LEEEEEERRRROOOYYYYYYYY............................................... . ....................................................................................................................................................................................JE N KINS!!!
Hand Banana: The movie will be a love story/drama about Mankrik's long search for his missing wife.
Crudbucket: Shadowknight: When I sat down one night, I let out a resigned sigh and realized this is how I felt when I was getting ready to go to work at the last job I hated. I was paying to do a job that I didn't even like.Exactly why I stopped playing any kind of MMO. The first time some guild member tried chewing us out by saying, "You all need to be taking this more seriously!!!" I was done.
Gunther: Source code is amazing as long as you turn it off about 10 minutes before the end so you get a nice bittersweet ending instead of a ludicrous ultra-mega-happy ending.

I was done.Same here, WoW was fun when I was just running around bullshiatting with my friends, then it became "serious" and a farking "job" with raiding. Our guild disintegrated due to infighting about raiding./Met hubby on WoW so it was worth it
