I would like to make a point that even in digital world like World of Warcraft, no one really has the right to dominate your will like a dictator, and tell you how to play. But this is exactly how people act in this game.For example, you are not given permission to tell any advice to starting players if you are not a bona-fide level 70 with 80 billion arena rating and full arena epics in your class forums. It'll just attract flames from losers who spent more time behind a screen than you.In the end-game certain guild officers will tell you what spec to become, or not accept you into the guild at all based on your gear, talent spec, play preferences, available hours, and most importantly class. I had the misfortune of rolling the two most unwanted classes for end-game raiding, the hunter, and the rogue. So if someone came up to you, starts flaming you for rolling a easy-2-play class, and tells you to reroll a priest, shaman, druid, or a paladin, you are going to be considerably frustrated and angry. Now you'll need to get your new alt to level 70, that can't complete quests as easily as a overrolled pet class, and being berated by fellow instance members for not healing fast enough or for running out of mana in Scarlet Monastery. You think anyone wants to relive the entire boring adventure again? Or would they just hire some gold farmer with obvious language barriers that other players can see through, and report to Blizzard, thus causing their entire accounts and characters to be banned and deleted. Now they got no characters, and they got to buy a new account with completely different payment information from their banks to play again, and it's very likely they will come back.Blizzard profits from the time you spent on your main, the time you ARE spending getting your better alts up to level 70, the money you paid for the clients and authentication keys, and the money you had to repay Blizzard after they banned your first account for cheating.They don't ban you because you broke the rules, they banned you because they know you are addicted, and your coming back.
