Blizzard Entertainment is truly great at what they do. In fact, their eight year reigning MMO online game is being favored by millions and millions of people or online gamers all over the world. World of Warcraft (WoW) is known to be the most sought for online game in the World Wide Web universe. The best thing about it is it can be played for many reasons and by many different types of people.
World of Warcraft (WoW) offers numerous directions on how players get to live their virtual WoW life and set out their goals. These can be done in either taking part of the player versus player (PvP) mode, player vesus environment (PvE) mode or simply get into the roleplaying gig to name a few. Surely, many are eager to be involved in guilds and do most of what PvP and PvE players do. However, the least favorite and most criticized group of players in WoW is the one who enjoy roleplaying.
Roleplaying is said to be a creative thinking tool in which players get to generate new twists and stories within a huge web of World of Warcraft’s very own story. It is a player’s narration of life within a virtual online game life provided for by Blizzard Entertainment. Many people disregard the power of roleplaying and most of the time label them as wasting time in the story instead of getting the excitement through raids and quests. Below are few of the false accusations that WoW players and other third parties are incorporating to the roleplaying WoW group. Following them are the defense attacks of these overpowered players.
No Skills are acquired-Roleplaying 24/7
This is the basic misconception being thrown at the roleplayers. They seem to view the roleplaying WoW group as those minute level players who do not know how to raid, do quest or get to use skills in order to fight whatever the WoW environment has to offer them. They simply know how to roleplay, period. Those players who enjoy roleplaying beg to differ. They have been restlessly trying to explain to the judgemental players that in order to get to survive in how you get to know the basic skills of survival which include those being used in PvP, PvE, WoW quest and etc. Plus, roleplayers hold the same goal as most players within the game are trying to achieve: kill the leading bosses and achieve the temporary end of the adventure. They have the skills but have chosen to postpone in using them.
Roleplayers are the certified WoW perverts!
Now, this seems to go below the belt accusation. Again, roleplaying is a tool used by players who would create their own story to embed in the actual story of WoW. Adult nature scenes are unavoidable as this is part of human experience that roleplaying players seem to think vital in adding to make the world of WoW as realistic as possible. It all fits in their story but it does not mean that it is all that they want 24/7. In fact, they can actually incorporate a little PvP in their roleplaying when they would like to add murder, thriller or suspense in their mini story. Also, PvP and PvE players are not off the hook as their actions within the WoW realm does not justify what they actually do beyond its curtains. There are those who actually get to sex websites for their own pleasure. Roleplayers are simply story tellers that enjoy what other humans would do to react in a scripted environment. It is all for art!
No Social lives! Full of Drama!
This is a generic accusation. Most online gamers accuse the roleplayers to spend most of their time in generating their own story through roleplaying. They do not have social lives. Roleplaying players simply sigh and defend themselves with this phrase: “It takes one to know one!” Wouldn’t you agree that most online gamers have no lives but to simply sit down in front of their computers and play games all day long? So what differentiate the roleplaying group from the broad group of online gamers? As for social lives, a community of roleplayers does exist and so there is constant interaction between characters and people behind those characters. The difference is that they simply choose roleplaying to enhance their fantasy filled minds and creatively express their personalities rather than get to bloody fights in PvP or PvE. Almost all routes of playing the game involves drama in them and this does not alienate roleplaying.
Think whatever you may with the roleplayers but World of Warcraft has been created to provide equal opportunity to different types of players all over the world. And this includes roleplaying in the WoW story. Diversity and trying to recapture the desires of players is what Blizzard Entertainment is doing in every expansion they release with this the leading franchise of World of Warcraft. Try getting yourself in the game to find out what you are rooting for as your play it or going through the story. But do remember respect begets respect in the virtual world as much as in real world.
