My former best friend will NOT get off this game.
He has not quit yet, and I don't think he will. He plays from when he gets home at 3 all the way until 2-4 in the morning. He wakes up and is tired as hell, and this is a cycle that repeats indefinitely. He has no real friends other than me and a few other guys, and is extremely socially awkward because of his WoW addiction. All he talks about is the game, and he makes tons of references to it in real life even if nobody gets them. He is never seen without his laptop, and if his laptop (even as school or work laptop) can't run the game on max settings, he refuses to buy it.
His parents are also rich, so he can use their credit card to buy new shit for the game and they wont even notice.
I hate this game with a passion, Blizzard NEEDS to address addiction on their website. This is freaking ridiculous how people lose their ENTIRE lives due to a fantasy world. To hell with Blizzard, who is even WORSE than activision, and to hell with that friend. I can't even stand him anymore because of his addiction.
