I'm sorry but I really do feel I have to add my 2 cents to this. I have been playing WoW since Oct. 2005. In the beginning, I had a job I attended faithfully EVERY DAY (except for being sick of course ^^) but once I was off work I would go home have myself a dinner of cookies and milk and raid and then pvp from about 5pm until almost midnight every day. Still worked, still held a job. On weekends back then when the PvP honor system was still archaic and they posted the top 2000 pvpers on the servers, I spent 80% of my weekend doing PvP trying to stay on that list and I swore my arse would turn square sitting that long. I met my wife sort of because of Warcraft. She actually played EQ at the time. We hooked up shortly after TBC was released and we have been together since. I managed to maintain a raiding schedule (running regs, never liked the heroics much), as well as work a part time job and attend full time college where I also managed to pull off making the Dean's honor list 3 times in a row. All of this while also raising 2 kids in fact, around the time of Ulduar or Crusader's Coliseum the wife (then fiance) and I took some time out to get married. Our wedding was scottish themed but did have some little Warcraft easter eggs in it such as rings that have "soulbound" engraved in them with our wedding date, the tables were all labeled after taverns and Inns in Warcraft, and our wedding cake was made in the shape of a roasted pig we named "Mr. Wiggles" after the pig vanity pet. So to the director of this movie or some of the others that come off with the whole "WoW ruined my life" I say suck it. I'm proof that WoW couldn't be the root and only thing that was affecting a person's life. There is something deeper and more troubling that caused them to wish to escape and hide in the game. I still game, I have over 10k achievement points, though with my current job I have found it nearly impossible to find time to raid as most guilds don't really raid on weekends only on my server. Did I mention I have received my degree as well also while playing WoW? yeah....again, why waste time reviewing people that quit Warcraft when there are people that are still playing Warcraft currently that have actually done something with themselves?
