I mention that I play wow on my resume, but I never actually say world of warcraft. I say something along the lines that I'm a member of a club (guild), we do weekly events together (raids) and that I co-lead the events (MT and one of 2 raid leaders). I dont use that exact wording, but I follow up with some of the responsibilities that could relate to my job such as showing up on time, being prepared ahead of time, communication, and resolving disputes.I have only had one employer actually question what my hobby was about, and she only raised her eyebrow at it and laughed a lil. It's never been an issue, and I have even been told that it helps employers see that I do other stuff outside of work other than drink, or get stoned, or just sit and watch TV.Its all in how you present it.
