Is this actually happening? I stopped playing that thing about 2 years ago...
Then again, if you play a male Draenei, you are kinda asking for it. ^_^

It is indeed happening, unfortunately, and it has become a major problem. Check the blog for more details.

Ah, I see. Damn, like that boring piece of dren game really needed another factor to make it less appealing.
MMOs are dead, and I've played most of them and seen them die.
Can Bioware's Old Republic resurrect them? I doubt it. I for one go back to jumping across the roofs of Venice in Single-Player mode and enjoy the fact that nobody can steal Ezio's items. ^_^

WoW is my first MMO, so the novelty factor is still there for me, and it's something my real life friends and I were playing together, which was also part of the appeal. Still, I don't enjoy it as much after that whole incident.

I never played Assassin's Creed, but I also don't have a PS3 or 360. I've been playing my DS a lot more, specifically trying to actually finish Disgaea. Right now I just feel like that game deserves my time.

From the desk of Marc Matters:

I've never been a fan of gaming with anyone I don't know personally. I realize this is the digital age of collecting "friends" as trophies, but events such as what briefly transpired here today in the comic are the terrifying, but inevitable, conclusion.
I, too, enjoy the single-player experience more often than not, such as was the case with the Assass Creed games for me as well. But having the potential to run through Dragon Quest 9 or Demon's Souls with my equally nerdy brethren is incredibly enticing. MMO's take things to a place that looks great on paper, but eventually collapses under all the evil lurking within the human heart.

Nice comic and I agree with you 100% Account hackers are some of the.... for lack of a better word, gayest people of the internet. I can't believe they're even earning money off doing this. What's wrong with this world? XD

PS: If I ever find a hacker I'll happily point them in your direction so you can do "happy" things to them. :P

From the considerably less tidy desk of Kevin Seibert:

I appreciate it, JackitK. Tell any hackers you meet I have a nummy treat and a Nobel Prize waiting for them. That's more likely to get them to make an appearance than promising broken phalanges, right? I don't really know what kinds of things people enjoy.

I've had a couple friends hacked and it really ruined the experience for them... Once it happens once, you always have that thought in the back of your head...

Of course, I think they are going back for Cataclysm, so there are no guarantees ;)

Something I said? Sorry if I'm forgetting about good hackers, by hackers I meant people who hack for no good reasons. I was still a little sore about an account hack related thing that was going on in YouTube a the time...

It wasn't in regards to you talking about hackers negatively, it was the use of the word "gay" to demean them.
