World of Dorkcraft
Think that one buddy of yours plays a bit too much World of Warcraft?
Compared to "Prepared," he doesn't.
In a case of game addiction gone officially off into "what's a boobie?, Why is there a fireball in the sky?", gaming blog Joystiq reports on what is surely the biggest Warcraft fan of them all. Known only under the moniker "Prepared," the gamer plays a stunning 36 World of Warcraft accounts on 11 different computers...simultaneously.
Stemming from a desire to manage raids -- large-scale gameplay sessions that typically require the teamwork of multiple players -- all by himself, the die-hard gamer seems undaunted by both the financial and lifestyle commitments... Jebus! Look at the pictures of his mommy's basement. Hope his mom isn't expecting to get any grandkids - like - ever.
"It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule," he writes. "Not bad considering I'm looking at it like it's a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft."
And despite the downturn in the economy, Prepared can't wait to get his hands on the upcoming Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.
"I plan to be at the store when it opens and will purchase 36 copies of it. With tax, it should be about $1500 for all of them."Jebus... You know, drinking beer is a hobby. So is, like, talking to girls. I can imagine the beer I could buy with 5700. Hell, I could even buy my couch... I doubt that 5700 covers his electrical bills. Let's say that's another 100 bucks a month? Maybe more? God, think of all the hookers and blow you could buy with 6 grand, plus the other 1500 for the 36 expansion sets?
Boggles the mind.
