Wrath of the Lich King binge causes kid to collapse

World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King was released on November 13, and not only has someone reached the level cap, but one kid has already managed to make himself sick over it.

A 15-year-old gamer from Sweden needed the help of rescue services after a heavy Lich King session caused him to go into convulsions. It is believed that a lack of food and sleep deprivation caused the boy’s downfall. 

“They played all day and all night. Maybe they got a few hours of sleep,” claims the teenager’s father. “They ate a little food and breakfast at their computers. [When the boy went into convulsions] we were terrified and called rescue services …”

Extreme Warcraft players never cease to amaze me. Whether you applaud their determination or view them as the furries of the videogame world, one thing’s for certain … they may very well be indestructible.
