    I haven't noticed it. It's been same old same old where the WoW threads go. I don't understand... Southpark WoW? Is it an expansion pack or something?

    Not. (just kidding)

    The funny thing is, that episode just reinforced the reasons I chose to quit WoW for the time being.

    its actual AMERICAN CITIZENS who say:

    47
    or
    51

    states, that need to be slapped upside the head.

    There are only 50 states - and Puerto Rico, which is not a state but a territory of the US.

    the reasons I believe the show was speaking of are as follows:

    character became such a high level Admins (GMs) couldnt kill him.

    impossible, there is a level cap and GMs can become any level up to 999 instantly.

    no way to delete him from the server
    Blizzard owns your account, they can and will

    being able to kill lower level people at will
    not possible even on PvP servers in a "home" area, which the SP kids were in the human newb area

    you can kill tons of low level boars to gain exp
    impossible, blizz thought of that and makes it so you cant gain xp on stuff that isnt within a certain level higher or lower than yours

    that every character in WoW was killed
    there are at least 20 servers in the US alone not one big one for all 9 million players, and characters cant do anything with those not on their server. if something like a griefer came along, you could leave the server if you wanted.

    I only played during the beta, and yet I know all this. I am such a dork.

    The raid-like directions from cartman were my main reinforcement.

    And Guam, and Marianas, and I'm sure there are others, we got out of Panama just a few years ago. Quite a number of colonies for a democracy, no?

    either way, it was just a show. they weren't going for correctness.
    not to mention that for the sword of one thousand truths to be added to the game, everyone would need to update.

    Hey, and once Stan's dad wielded the sword, it would have been soulbound.

    But no matter... the so-called inaccuracies were either slight simplifications (i.e., you can grind beasts at significantly lower levels than you to gain XP), or "science fiction" devices needed to create the premise for the plot.

    The show was dead on in capturing the sense of the game. At least one of the writers is clearly a player.

    why? there are plenty of weapons that aren't soulbound. although i suppose it was unique so it probably would have been but meh it was one kick ass looking sword.

    He had it in his hand and was WIELDING it. You could see him waving it around. That binds it to you. In a "real" game, he would have just carried a BOE in his inventory.

    The sword of 1000 truths is in the game, it's called the hungering cold, and it drops off of Kel'thuzad, who is currently the hardest boss in the game and has only been killed by few guilds. The sword looks the same graphically, but the stats are different:

    I don't play WoW anymore, but I do keep up on the news in the WoW community.

    1. I don't watch Southpark
    2. I live in England
    3. HL2 Episodes, Sin Episodes.

    Grow the **** up, sig boy.

    ps. I love how a minority of Americans think they're the only guys on the planet. I've noticed it in a few other places like "Preorder a Wii/PS3 now!"... cheers thanks, you missed out the US bit. Patriots?

    Jimmi I am a little suprised you don't know what South Park is. You are the right age group for the show and I thought it was a world wide thing? The brits seem to know all about the Tom Cruise-Trapped in a Closet episode.

    If you haven't seen it before, watch some :D its the stupidest/funniest show on tv

    He said he didn't watch Southpark, not that he didn't know what it is.
    And anyways, we wont be seeing that episode on TV for a while
