For the love of.....warcraft?

Someone says game is just a game. That makes a sense. But should we must hold the spirit and the faith of the role we are playing in the game? Last week on the server Lothar in World of Warcraft China while facing the overwhelming attack of the Horde corps, a human paladin named Plapla set herself an good example, telling all her enemies attendant the very final answer: YES.

 

 

Magni Bronzebeard, the King of Ironforge was the target in the attack, Horde didn't meet any effectual defense of the Alliance because of the imbalance in Realms, just within a few minutes, Ironforge became a complete ghost town, then the last NPC guard was down very soon.

Plapla didn't simplely "quit" as "it is just a game", obviously a "She can't win" game, instead she chose to stay beside Magni Bronzebeard just in the name of her profession, Paladin. A bit far from the point, but you know, seriously this situation reminds me of a classical dialogue in Black Hawk Down: "We are all afraid, but what you do now can make a difference"

Then Plapla shouted out in the world channel: YOU SHALL NOT BE PASSED!
 

Actually there was an obvious nonstandard grammatical construction, but hey it completely matters nothing! When reading here I was touched so much that I almost felt I was weeping, She was role-playing her character and she knew the meaning of the King to her Kingdom, her realm. It was no longer the matter of alive or dead, it was just the call of duty, it was about honor and faith.

In the end, Horde failed to kill Magni Bronzebeard, a thread in a fansite forum reported the whole raid including Plapla's story, almost everyone was touched by her, even some players in the opposite realm. She is named "King's Defender" now because of the weapon she held to fight against the raid is just exact the level 115 epic one-handed sword King's Defender.

On Plapla there is something pure and something valueable which has been lost in game for such a long time, so when we discovey it someday, it is just so fantastic and makes us feel a way of which we have to recall to become original, because that's who we are, that's why we call it RPG, and that's why we are gaming for.

wow is boring and the new content is just a rehash of outdated content. Does anyone else get bored with the idea that this is one of the last mmo's to not have offensive or defensive targeting or is tired of auto attack.  Dont get me wrong I have a wow account but the questing in storm peaks was just sooo boring with constant A-B back to B-A aand rinse and repeat.  Wow has lost its epciness since wow 1 and true gamers know this, however the alternatives are extremely limited atm

btw Alliance sucks azz

@ cult7 It's an RP thing. You wouldn't understand.

I don't get into it heavily in any MMO, though Fallen Earth looks to have potential. Then again, I do when others around me want to and that's because I have many memories of some truly awesome TT RP sessions back in the day. Granted my mentor was a guy who had sat down and talked with Gygax and Arneson as well as many others whose names most of you wouldn't know. (David Hargrove anyone?) And it wasn't limited to that one genre for the record.

 

It boils down to if you don't like it, then find a Regular server, or a PvP one and leave the RP/RPPvP ones to us. I try not to make fun of you coming across as a spoiled child making fun of things he doesn't understand or comprehend, so please extend me the same courtesy.

 

In closing, I would say bravo to her. It was pointless, a waste of time for her to do that, but it was her duty to stand, and in the end, the King was saved. Now for the record if that had been in Scarlet Crusade in the US, I would have fed the pieces of the Runt King to my imp, but that's another story ;)

Since when is Lothar a Chinese server?  O.o  I have characters on Lothar, and incidentally, Alliance outnumbers Horder 3 to 1 on that server.  Doubt that?  Check WoWJitsu or any other WoW player stats site.  So while I think if you're into RP, the story is cute....the facts....are a bit skewed.  And Horde has killed Bronzebeard on that server MULTIPLE times in the past, before WotLK expansion, so don't expect them to lay off long.  LOL  Cute story though.
