Oh, yes, because who would ever think to "role play" in an MMORPG? God.I'm sorry, but I don't understand people who REFUSE to roleplay in WoW. That's kind of what the game is all about. I don't particularly roleplay, but I'm on an RP server so I don't have to deal with PVPing douchbags killing me every five seconds, and as a general respect to the people who DO roleplay, I only say things that can be construed as roleplaying. I.E., no mentions of Chuck Norris or any other real life crap unless I'm talking to my friends in whispers, party chat, etc. Sneer at RPing if you want, but remember what sort of game you're playing lest you come off as a raging hypocrite. I'm actually kind of sad that even RP servers are full of non-RPing people. When I first played WoW I really looked forward to RPing, even though I was shy about it, and then I realized NO ONE DOES IT.Then, months later, I realized that's only really Alliance side. Apparently the morons hang out over there? Lots of leet speak and jerkwads thinking the word "thought" is spelled "thot" because, hey, "thottbot!" Good lord.Like I said, I've maybe RPed once for real, but in general I like to say things that can be seen as being "in character," even if they aren't. It doesn't take much more effort than, "WHER IS BANK DUDE," and I get to go to sleep at night with the satisfaction that I'm not a total retard when it comes to language skills. Win/win.
