Stolen Pixels #202: UR AFK? NP!

Being able to access WoW off your computer might be cool, but where does it end?

Ugh, thats kind of sad now. If any of those things happen, I will be really suprised, but it most likely will happen...

And damn that mailbox being alllll the way outside.

Lol. His priorities need a re-shuffle.

"Oh, great job Leeroy"

"At least I'm not hanging off a branch for dear life..."

amd I got chicken...

So....from MMORPGs:

The first M has gone from some games.
Soloable quests removes the other M.
This app. removes the O.
RP has been missing for sometime.
And the repetitive grind on some levels gets rid of the G, before this app removes the need to G at all.

So, what do we call them now?

Lololololol.

Amazing pixel, really love the execution of it.

Everquest used to have a chat client that would let you chat in game without actually being in game and that was like 10 years ago. Was actually kinda usefull. With all other social networks also being accessible from mobile devices, this seems like a pretty obvious progression.

lmao, I could see this happening too! Talk about invading real world situations!

Well, you could get a mail slot in the door. Then you don't need to go outside to patent it. You can even order the slot online!

Oh dear, i forsee a new age for gold sellers.............................. Wow stock brokers.

Although it'd be a laugh to see them all leap off Icecrown Citadel when the gold economy collapses.

I would get an account just so see that.

Maybe your character is represented by a floating pay phone? That'd rock, actually.

Forget the DPSs?! You need them alive too, to take down the boss! You can't just forget them! Bah, what a lousy healer.

If there were something that let me play the AH while I wasn't logged in I would have never quit WoW.

I would never log in and I would pay $15 a month just to mess with the AH...maybe I should buy some stocks or something.

Isin't modern technology amazing...ly stupid.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one! One of my favorite Stolen Pixel's so far.
Cheers!

This exists now.... just costs a *little* more- How does $17.99 a month sound? :D

Money Wasting Time Sinks seem to fit it nicely.

Whats worse is they started off this game by saying they would never do anything like that, then again that didn't last long.

Well, atleast if they instituted those systems I wouldn't have to waste so much time grinding. And I could actually have a social life. *GASP*

Landline Interactive is probably just a team of people on WoW playing for other people...Hmm I should start something like that...Me + a bunch of other nerds being paid $10 per/min to take WoW orders from some loser over the phone....It'll be bigger than phone sex!

If it's WoW, you can just throw up a Lightwell and let the DPS fend for themselves.

ahahaha the 3rd panel made me ROFLMAOBBQ :D :D :D
But i never understood how ppl got the patience to stay in the AH for hours trying/making money!
its so boring...i can never do that -_-
