Thats about how I am, but I read wowwiki to learn the lore about my character and what I should no. But Chris "Retcon/moneybags" metzen and his "you shouldn't get all your lore from one source, you should pay me for dozens of additional sources so you can actually know wtf is going on" policy (i paraphrased, so sue me) kind of pisses me off. So I'd much prefer reading that information for free than buying into this scam of his.

AAaaand this is when I stopped paying attention. The underlined part. Yeah.
Look, it sounds to me like you want to QQ. At every suggestion and shrug you go 'yeah, but-' and then go off on a whine fest like the above.
Yes, I am being blunt. Sorry, I just had to watch Due Date. My brain ceased functioning in its proper manner after the little dog doing a human and ew action part.
Anyway. Here's the deal.
You deal with it. We cannot control what other people do. Whining about immersion is kinda absurd when we have addons flashing all over the place, can see the whole body of our avatar (unless you are REALLY dedicated and do the uber-zoom thing), have a bar of attacks at the bottom of the screen, have to type every action and everything we say, AND when we say something speech bubbles appear.
Immersion is what you make of it. You can choose to react to these people ICly like they are insane. For instance, the guy biting your arm off. Act like the guy said out loud he turned into a dragon and bit your arm off and proceed to act like he is crazy. There, immersion issue solved. I am sure a lot of people have head injuries from the war and magic mishaps that can explain the multitude of insane people.
And because I know you will ask, the reason that line made me go -ppffhhht- is that this is a game. A game that has over 1000 people, way over that many, all contributing to lore. A game which has been alive for ten years. To expect that a whole complete story that is constantly growing can be found in this game is ridiculous. It would be impossible, unless this was designed like final fantasy. It isn't.
Heck, if a book of any beloved fantasy series had the option to be remade and re-edited and retconned whenever the author wanted, you would be shocked to see how many authors would RUSH to change their works. WoW's big and expansive lore and open status allows it, so it isn't surprising that it happens.
And when they write books to aid in the story, yeah, of course they are going to ask you to pay for it.
Now, do I think they could do a better job at least highlighting some key things that happened in the books in-game? Yeah. But really, this last run they did a much better job with the whole Cairne and why Thrall is gone stuff. Not so good with Fandral and Malfurion, but eh. At least they are improving.

Read that, and suddenly, you almost find yourself applauding sons of Arthas to be good RP'ers.

Only for two expansions later, to be retconned as the result of an ancient night elf who had a magic stick that infected people with druid wolf form stuff.
"lol" roleplayers live to bend the rules as much as they can, and more often than not end up breaking them. These are the ones who roleplay as children, etc et al
Option A. Go to the home cities12/05/2010 7:07 PMPosted by LohanaPerhaps I'm looking in the wrong places but I haven't seen any roleplay about since I started here on WRA.
Again - perhaps I'm not looking in the right spots, but Moon Guard(my old server) was chalk-full of the types that the OP mentioned.
