OK, I'm almost ready to start playing World of Warcraft, I swear! Since I posted that review yesterday on the WoW site, I've been sent another link to a site to buy WOW Gold. I actually didn't know, but there are currently 8.5 million players of the game right now! This makes me think that it has to be addictive, and though I'd like to give it a shot, I don't really have the time to dedicate to a virtual world or game.
Anyhow, I'm still quite fascinated by the concept of the service of this website, that it allows newer game players to buy wow accounts. At first I was a little skeptical about how the game maker would feel about this after market of accounts and virtual goods, but now that I've thought about it, they must love it. Think about it, there are probably hundreds of first-time players that get frustrated very quickly by their inability to buy items in the game, or they get killed quickly. By purchasing an established account, or the game currency, they can jump-start that whole process, and get right into being an established player! This is great for Blizzard, as the result would be far less account abandonment.
One of the things to help with establishing new players is called wow power leveling. You basically join a group of experienced players, and they lend power to you (not for free of course). Hmm, I can say that the pictures on this site were just mildly distracting 😉
