Couples playing W.O.W
Studying the human condition can be really rewarding, I like to observe people in a non-peeping tom kind of way to find out how they go about their daily lives. In World of Warcraft that is not easy since people play in their homes, but with a little searching and some pointed questions you are able to get a feeling for how people behave and integrate their lives and relationships in W.O.W.
Today I want to talk about couples in World of Warcrft. We already talked about how to get your girlfriend to play and the pros and con’s of doing so. Now, let us explore those couples who do play W.O.W with quotes from them and the people they play with.
She has sex with me, but can she play?
Sometimes the man or woman gets their significant other to play. In other cases the two meet in game and then come together. We asked the question, what happens if he or she sucks at the game? What if she or he is better than the other?
My GF plays and I sometimes raid with her. She sits 3 feet from me, and is a Resto Shaman. Usually a night of raiding goes something like this:
“WTF are you doing, get out of the fire.”
“The red sh*t you’re standing on.”
“Don’t lifetap anymore”
“Shut your mouth.”
“It’s your fault we wiped.”
“Why are you such an ass? I hate playing this game with you.”
We learned it can be stressful if one person takes the game serious and the other doesn’t.
Girl: Alright, pulling
Guy: Doing great hun, just keep up the threat
Guy: Need heals
Girl: you have them, just let em tick…
Guy: omg! I’m gonna d…. oh, nvm
Girl: quick, death grip this one on me,
Girl: ok, i’ll get it.
Guy: … Maybe next time I won’t heal you….
Sometimes she just sucks ass. By the way, we also discovered anyone who says Tee Hee out loud is a psychopath.
“WTF you fell again?”
“What do you mean you dont have the flight path, we were just there?”
“So, this whole time, you didnt even have the quest?”
“How in the world do you pull the whole room?”
“I’m going on my alt…”
When the music stops
What happens when the fun of playing World of Warcraft is gone for one or the other? What happens if you both go in different directions in the game?
I started playing with my g/f.. She bought me this damn game. After 1 and a half years of playing together she went horde and we raided in different guilds and different factions. This affected our relationship greatly.. We almost broke up for good a month ago. We stopped playing completely a month ago to save our relationship.
Sometimes W.O.W has to be left behind in order to save the relationship. Unfortunately, sometimes it is the relationship left behind.
I thought having a gamer chick that was actually hot was better than a server first. Nothing beats hot sex in-between Kodo mount runs. Then something happened. She got into faction farming for those damn achievements. Watching her grind faction killed the game for me. We stopped having sex, I quit wow, but she kept playing. I couldn’t take it anymore. I broke up with her and found a club chick. She is just as bad, but its loud music not factions runs. I hear my ex is on a ventilator now and still plays.
I found if you can identify the problem early you might be able to save the relationship. The key is deciding which is more important, your hot piece of meat or purple loot and a dragon mount.
Problem is our relationship was amazing before the game came into our lives. We got equally addicted to the game where we were raiding 5 days a week for 4 hrs a night. Having no contact and sitting down for those hours spent apart affected us in so many ways.
She quit raiding a month a half ago due to guild drama when she realized she didn’t want to be with a raider anymore. I asked her numerous times if she wanted me to quit raiding I would and she just said no you can play the game. She thought she had made up her mind about leaving me because of me and not the game. I quit 2 weeks after her and the relationship started to improve greatly, she then found out it was the game that was screwing everything up for us and it wasn’t just me.
We know drama
We have much more to cover including, kids over vent, when guild leaders are married and A.F.K sex. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below and stay tuned for part two.
