Wrath of the Lich King level cap reached in 27 hours

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: World of Warcraft people are scary. They are like machines. They cannot be reasoned with, they cannot be bargained with, and in extreme cases, they cannot be dragged away from a PC until they are nothing but dust and bones.

Such is the case with WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King, with the latest level cap being reached just 27 hours after launch. The cap was raised to 80 with the launch of Lich King, and WoW player “Nymh” has already done the necessary grinding and maximized his character.

It is my theory that the average Warcraft player is not, in fact, human, but an evolved form of ant that has gained a humanoid appearance and a rudimentary self-awareness. The zealous dedication to monotonous grinding that Warcraft demands could only be undertaken by something akin to a social insect, perhaps under the partial guidance of an overseeing hive mind.

We shall investigate this new ant theory with journalism as soon as we’re done leveling up our wizards.
