I'm writing a paper on subcultures and chose World of Warcraft as my topic. I have a bunch of questions that I'd like answered. Pretty straight forward, just answer what you can and make sure to number it, so I know what it corresponds to.. Thanks Rules within the game, 1. Are there certain unsaid rules that members follow? 2. What are important "morals" that each member must consider while in the game, ie, killing unarmed characters ( I remember a story a few weeks ago where a group or clan of people attacked a funeral being had for a death of a real life member)? 3. Do morals within the game follow the same kind of deals as in real life? 4. Do people take advantage of the fact that it's a video game and they dont' have to face consequences like they would in real life? 5. Are there consequences within the game for wrongs done? 6. Who enforces them? Slang, 7. Mini glossary on terms used within the game and outside? 8. Do the sayings and terms make their way into real life? 9. when they do, do people look at you weird, or do they normally understand what you're saying? Communication, 10. Being this is the internet world, what's the primary form of communication? 11. Are their WoW meets? 12. Explain LAN parties (if they're applicable in this situation) and the relationships within that. 13. Relationships within WoW, do you have any "real" friendships that have developed in real life? 14. Are there terms used in WoW that mean something else in real life, or other groups of people? Gameplay, 15. Why did you start playing WoW? Boredom, to be challenged, etc? 16. How often are you playing? 17. what have you sacrificed in order to play?
