Drama Mamas: It's time to leave now


The Drama Mamas are real-life mamas and experienced WoW players -- and just as we don't want our precious babies to be the ones kicking and wailing on the floor of checkout lane next to the candy, neither do we want you to become known as That Guy on your server. How to handle that sticky situation? Ask the Drama Mamas at DramaMamas@wow.com.

It's time to leave now. You know it. We know it. Your guildmates probably know it, too. But you just can't bring yourself to open that door. Leaving a guild is so uncomfortable, so guilt-inducing, so potentially dramatastic, so ... awkward. Is it any wonder that the best way to leave (disguised as "whether" to leave) a guild is one of the most popular questions to hit the Drama Mamas mailbox every week?

Dear Drama Mamas: I have recently decided that it may be time for me to make a change from one guild to another; however, because I am an officer in my current guild, I feel rather guilty in doing so at this time. The raid times have become enough of an issue that they became a noticeable problem in real life, and I recently informed my guild that I would no longer be raiding with them.

This past weekend, I ran into a former co-worker of mine who happen to be on the same server. One of them informed me that their guild is looking for my class, and their raid times coincide almost perfectly with my preferred playing times. Their guild is a bit more progressed than my current guild, which is rather appealing, as is the prospect of getting together with some real life-friends, but I feel like if I join their guild, I am bailing on my current guild. Do you have any suggestions on how to break the news to my current guild (or officers) that I am thinking about applying to another guild, or any suggestions on how to make a transition go smoothly? Thanks, Anonymous

WoW Moviewatch: I quit!


If you're going to quit the game, why do it with a boring video showing you disenchanting epic gear or deleting characters decked out in the game's best loot? At this point, practically everyone seems to make the same "I quit!" videos when they decide to leave the game behind. If you're going to quit, do it with a little panache, as seen in this 300-style "I quit" movie.

Some weekend WoW humor



After a week of bugs and endless forum whining, I think we could all use a little funny...

Today we salute you, Mr. Suddenly Has To Go Right After a Wipe Guy. Soapygirl over at WoW_Ladies has a hilarious post from her raid leader about people who bail on raids early. It is in the style of those "Real Men of Genius" beer commercials, and it is one of the funnier things I have seen in a good while. If I was creative at all I'd try one of my own, but I'm not, so I'll spare you the lameness.

If you are looking to quit a guild, or WoW itself, you could do it the classy way. Or you could do it the Not Addicted way. Quickly spending all your DKP to maximize your loot to sell on Ebay? Good idea! Long, boring, self-serving WoW farewell letter in the forums? The more flame-worthy, the better! As with most Not Addicted material, there is some truth in the humor, and some realistic suggestions for ending your WoW career with bang while not annoying your entire server. Bonus!

If you see a funny World of Warcraft blog post or forum entry, let us know!
