Seriously Uncool…

Posted by Brian on September 27, 2006

From a Newsweek article on the MMORPG World of Warcraft:

Another example of questionable behavior is viewable in a video that more than 80,000 people have accessed on YouTube. When one guild member died (in real life, not Azeroth), his grieving friends decided to hold a funeral for him inside the game. The solemn affair was disrupted when a rival guild burst upon the unarmed mourners and slaughtered them mercilessly. “It’s unfortunate that someone would do that to people trying to honor one of their guild members,” says Mike Morhaime, Blizzard’s president.

People can be such jerks…

    It’s an online computer game based around player vs. player combat, not a carebear funeral home. If they wanted to hold an online funeral, they shouldn’t have done it in a combat-based game.
