Beating a dead horse since I completely missed this newspost today...I remember earlier this year that during downtime, WoW.com did a long prose about how the players get to the inn and fall asleep because of some "feeling" they had. They also then did a prose for what happens when they wake up. I thought this was the best thing ever and really played on my escapism...er...fantasy addiction...er...ok there isn't a good way to put it. The point is I really enjoyed that and miss it sometimes, liking the RP, even though I don't RP. In truth, I believe that once all the players are off, Blizzard presses the big blue button (not the red one, the red one either instantly fixes all class issues and makes PvE and PvP separate and not causing balancing issues...or it blows up the world. Experimenting has been denied at this point). The big blue button makes all the NPCs, bosses, trash, and even our own PCs come alive. Our PCs go back to their spouses and children, telling the tales of their journey thus far. Usually the bank alts are the people you see flaunting their money in the restaruants...although some of the male gnomes lack any clothing which just makes it even more disturbing. The Bosses of each raid have several things they decide to do, one of which is battle it out with other raid bosses. Heroics are sometimes invited. Trash shift around aimlessly, tending to their wounds and buying gear for the bosses (sometimes the nicer bosses go out and throw a party...the trash there are usually more exuberant and protective). The NPCs actually interact with the PCs on the personal level, all with vocal language, and all that. The greatest PvP battles take place between the horde and alliance due to the fact that skill have everything to do with survival in real life. For them, WoW is real life. Knowing how to stab with X resilience is how you live rather than having X resilience and X class. PCs actually go and attack mobs sometimes, but that usually causes bugs and bosses to deep breath moar! And when they extend downtime...yeah, major capital cities become red light districts and major partying occurs...lots and lots of partying...and other things.
