Alright, you've come this far, so you must really want to know just what is this 'World of Warcraft' which keeps
getting mentioned. Well, World of Warcraft is a: Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game. Quite the phrase, i
know. But that is layman's terms. World of Warcraft is commonly referred to anyone who plays as simply "WoW",
pronounced how it looks. And as for that other phrase, it can be simplified to MMORPG. Ask any nerd which
M-M-O-R-P-G, pronounced letter by letter, and they will more than likely know what you are talking about. Alright,
so basically, it's a gigantic online video game which has a monthly subscription fee, (to justify giant server
hostings) and the genre is a role-playing game, which simply means you take the role of a fictional character, and
create your own story and life for them. And when they say massively multiplayer, they really mean it! We're talking
huge numbers. At one point they even broke over 10
million subscribers! That's right...i'm sure you can see how and why it may contain some addictive qualities!
It isn't quite the highest subscribed game, but it's certainly one of the most successful to date.
Well that's the basics. But there is so much more to learn. You should probably just head back to the home page and you can learn more!
