The Chattanooga Pulse online posted an interesting article, that just happens to be the second WoW addiction article I found today.

Is this some kind of epidemic? Why haven’t I heard of this before? Oh, yeah, I was too busy playing WoW.

“You guys ready?” the guild master’s voice crackles over the speaker after they decide on a man-to-man offense. “Yeah…yeah,” a couple members answer. And then someone decides to start off the guild’s quest to the sweet sounds of rapper Ludacris. “Move, bitch, get out the way…”

That might as well be Warcraft’s theme song, too. It has spread like the Bubonic Plague. It dominates its MMORPG brothers, with over five million subscribers as of December 2005. A monthly comic contest, an e-newsletter, forums, fan art, screenshots for each day, detailed definitions, videos, wallpaper? Oh, they got ‘em. Plus there is a six-chapter history of the Warcraft universe. Six chapters. And Blizzard and Legendary Pictures, a partner of Warner Brothers, just signed a motion picture deal. It all sounds well and good. A corporation makes some money, people have some fun. Rock on.

But it’s not quite that simple.

You can read the whole article here.
