WoW in Politics


Off-Topic Discussions

So apparently playing WoW is a political issue in Maine.
Republicans are going after the Democratic challenger in the State Senate because she plays WoW. Any idea what kind of people are the Republicans actually thinking this will affect?

American politics baffle me.

Why is she only 68? If she wasn't spending so much time doing things in real life she'd at least be 85 by now.

Maybe she doesn't play the game as much as her GOP opponents would like to portray.

It's mostly just the Republican party. Their base is the one that's full of crazy afraid-of-videogames folk.


Lol. Yes, I'm sure there aren't any wierdos among the Democrats.

How could she? She isn't even level 85... :P


68? How long takes to get there? Two weeks?

YOung people doing things old people don't approve of, get off my lawn you whipper snapper!" is pretty much the republican party platform.

This is probably a little low in my experience, but it's been a few years since I leveled a new character. I think I had about 3 days /played when I reached Northrend on my paladin.

You can get through 58-68 in probably 10 hours though. IF you have a sugardaddy that buys you a flying mount at 60.


IIRC the riding skill and flying mounts are much cheaper now than it was pre-Cataclysm.

Her affiliation with the Horde is obvious evidence of her lack of ethical integrity.

I used to play WOW with the senator of Guam. Nice guy.

Before I quit WoW(again) it was after DS was out, and for grins I leveled a shaman and a hunter from 1-80 in ~2 days played each. Admittedly I knew what I was doing and was being insanely efficient in my time expenditures, but yeah. Its much, much faster these days.

And we won't even go into buddy account silliness that can be done.

Guam doesn't have a senator.

Damn, that would have earned my vote.

What's her stance on important balance issues?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I believe she believes in the "Buff Mages" platform.

They have fifteen of them. He's lieutenant governor now, that's what I was thinking when I said "the".

I'm going to lock this thread and ask that conversion be consolidated in the first thread on this topic.
