What is World of Warcraft and What is it All About?

By: Muna wa Wanjiru

The world as you know it is about to change. That might sound like a tired old cliche but it is the truth, and something that you should take into consideration if you're going to enter the World of Warcraft. Wars have been fought over it, and still are being fought in fact, meals have gone missed, hygiene has been overlooked, and romances have sprung up, and apart, because of World of Warcraft.

Blizzard's World of Warcraft is nothing if not innovative and addictive, and in a world populated - some would say overpopulated - by computer games, it has hit its mark. There's nothing so fascinating to the human mind than territories unexplored and that's exactly what World of Warcraft is. An unexplored territory.

We've conquered the heavens, we're on our way to conquering the seas, and heaven knows that we've long since conquered the living world in between these two massive bodies. Religion is going by us and science is overtaking us, we're educated, we hold down jobs and in some cases, we make more money than we know what to do with.

So where does that leave us? In a world with nothing left to explore, a world which has suddenly become staid and boring and very often frustrating. Where are the dragons to slay, the damsels to rescue, the knights to train, and the ogres to scare us? This then is where World of Warcraft steps in and takes our world by storm. It gives us the ability to dream, to fight and to perform feats so unimaginable that they were considered legends even in days gone by.

Although this might explain to some extent why roughly 8 million people the world over have a fascination with World of Warcraft, an evolving online fantasy game, it still can't even touch the surface of why people stay with it, sometimes for years on end. The truth is that to understand this you need to visit the World of Warcraft yourself. You need to fight alongside your Alliance or Horde members and you need to taste of the cup of victory, and of defeat. In short, you need to live and breathe Warcraft. But that still doesn't explain what Warcraft is, and what it's all about.
