According to the report by ABC News, a World of Warcraft gamer in Australian stabbed his roommate after disputing about the volume of game.

Zhenghau Shen, a 21-year-old Chinese student studying in a Australian college. When the crime was committed, Shen just played WoW with three other friends and roommates at his apartment. The volume on his computer was too loud that his friends protested. After being repeatedly asked to turn the sound down, Shen got into quite a dispute with his roommate. During the fight Shen allegedly stabbed the victim in the head with a chef's knife, gashing his head, and nearly severed one of his fingers.

The court heard the victim suffered a gash to his head and one of his fingers was nearly severed. Magistrate John Burns refused the Chinese national bail and remanded him in custody until next month.

Insane player makes WOW look bad.

Sounds like there was some hidden "aggro" between them maybe. Or he really really likes loud sounds. Or he's just crazy. :)

A soon as someone playing wow does something stupid, media is all over it like a fly to a turd. It's not like wow is brainwashing people into being jerks or crazies. There are just so many players that there is bound to be "bad eggs" too.

Statisticly are Wow players quite harmless, one sod of 11 millions ain't much. Easier to blame violence on games movies, books music or satan than to actually find out what makes people do these things.

Worst wow players I know shower rarely and only leave their apartment to get food. Only way to get them violent is to try to stop them from playing :D

As a WOW player, I am quite sane and DO go outside quite often, unfortunately there are idiots out there from all walks of like who take things too much to heart such as video games, movies, music, etc. It's what separates the educated normals from the non-educated lunatics.

Funny that it's a Chinese player that did this, as Chinese players make up over half of WoW's nearly 11 million subs, while they only have around 2.5 million in America. I doubt that Rash of the Itch King will keep WoW afloat for much longer in America, so Blizzard will be relying on crazy masochistic asian grinders, and American newbs for their subscriptions.

This has nothing to do with MMORPG's or gaming at all. This is about domestic disputes and the limits of self defence/unnessesary force.

people like to find things to blame other then the person who did the crime. I play all kinds of MMO's and even played WoW, then got poor and I am Baptist Minister, People who do these things usually have some other thing wrong with them mentally, just like a friend of mine I had in high school had a learning disability and coudn't tell reality from fantasy and carried around a book he made with spells in it from D&D saying they were real and he actually threatened to cast magic missle on a guy who was making fun of him.

Or this guy could of been completely sane and just wanted to assert him self, from the interview we do not know how bad the other roommate was harrassing the WoW player, could of been self-defense or the guy could of been pushed to it, either way it is still the one who did the crimes fault.

 it reminds me of the crazy stuff you'd hear about EQ players back-in-the-day. In any case, I love how it's always videogames, roleplaying games, music, and television's fault... never the parents or the person themself. *sigh*

It doesn't take an insane player to make wow look bad. Just 1\8th of a brain and at least 1 eye.

I don't see how WoW need to be mentioned.  Press are funny.

This is basically dispute over noise complaint, and idiocy.

BTW, I don't like WoW, I am just looking at this issue objectively as it can really be ANY game that the stabber was playing.
