Well I have a friend that I usually chill with (No Norway) and a couple of weeks ago he bought WOW and now all he does is play that damn game. He barely answers calls, never answers text messages, doesn't log to messenger anymore. Sometimes he comes out for drinking but that's only on weekends and we don't always synchronize our drinking sessions so now it's almost 3 weeks I didn't see him (No Norway again).

More friends are playing WOW now, but I don't really care about them because they're annoying and this guy is the type that will just keep the friendship to light chat for years and I know him for like 12 years now. We barely ever talked about anything serious and that's what I like (yeah ... No Norway). People that tend to get deeper in time tend to annoy me to the point that I don't want to see them anymore.

OK

How do I get him back on track?

Yea, I know a lad that is addicted to that WOW stuff.
It's not for me.
Let them run off in their fantasy land, you can't do anything for him now.
It's time to say goodbye.

Wow...

whats World of Warcraft, a playstation game or what?

Yeah there aint really fuck all you can do. Maybe for a while just make more of an effort to hang round with him. Call over to his house, try to go drinking the same times as him etc. Its prolly just a faze, he'l come out of it

I tried playing WOW, but it seems boring to me. I was addicted to one game in my life. Ragnarok Online. I would spend 6-8 hours a day easily, the rest- I'd just eat, shit & sleep. it was a good game though

Play a drinking gane he can relate to.
Something like, everytime a 'Draenei' walks past, take a shot.
Draenei are an offshoot of Eredar, the race that eventually became corrupted by the Burning Legion.

-"For fuck's sake, not again"
-"Here's your vodka"
-"Bloody wanker.... gulp...gulp....im gonna hurl!....bleah"

*ruins the keyboard, computer and stops playing, starts drinking

Your friend is just a giant nerd begongo, there is no hope for him. My advice is to cut all communication with him and start hanging out with some much better adjusted kids who's friendship will lead you towards real life pussy and not the virtual kind.

That is kinda sad though Begongo.

Tell him to get off his ass, stop being a fuckin bitch nerd and get a life. Hit him if you have to. That might knock him into shape

I just called him, he was sleeping (of course he played WOW the whole night till noon)

but he answered

he said he'd call me back when he finished sleeping lol



I don't really expect him to do that, cuz the exact same thing happened last week and never called back

Durag
04-25-2008, 09:02 AM
"Damn Begongo, waking me up". Bet thats what he's thinkin, hes not gonna call you back.

idk man, my friends brother was severly addicted to Runescape


He stopped going to school for the last semester to add on top of bad grades, now if he misses 1 day of highschool through his whole career he'll be taken out of his mom's custody and put into a home lol

he was getting all super pale, like bone pale, and cranky, and his hair was a ball of greasy not even Skampoe would pick up a fry from it if fell on it.



the worst part, by summer, he still sucked at it.

also, i heard there's really big money in WOW, the homo plays taht too, i told him to "sell his character" cause it's worth 700-1000 dollars(ppl pay it, no joke) and i'll get some cut from finding him customers (he's actually good at this one for a change).

he says he'll be off that one for good in early june, so that's when i get to find out if he's gonna ack familiar when it comes to skrilliar.

i dnt understand this WOW business. seems like a load of bollocks to me. Begongo take your friend to a stripclub, give him a pussy overdose. if that dnt work then all hope is lost. so your better off killing him.

he actually called back today, so we hung out a bit

he told me his account expired and isn't playing anymore ... so ... while we're chilling he gets a phone call, when he sees the number he gets all hyped and after he finished speaking, guess what he said ? ..... a friend payed for the renewal of the account so he's back in business wepeee ....

That's great!

My solution:

Get his rich friend to buy you an account and then:

On a serious note, I think your friend is a lost cause, trust me... speaking from experience.

the only way to break him away from that game is to rip on him every day. Just stand in the door way and tell him hes a faggit until he breaks down emotionally like a chic..


i had to do it to one of my old room mates.. also do this when drinking straight liquor cuz it intensifies the effect

i know a guy who plays WOW

pretty embarrassing

he failed a unit a couple of semester ago

so now he uninstalls all his games at the start of a semester

hibernates for a few days going through withdrawals

and then studies like a maniac for the rest of the year

most people finsish the year and go out and stuff

hes relieved to be able to play games again

plus he looks like the cartoon character goofy

sans the ears

Don't know if you heard it before but some girl slept with a guy for WOW gold.
I also believe someone got murdered for a sword.
And of course there's people dying because they're playing the game a few days in a row (heart attacks I think).

And I think there's a lot more.
