The Golden Rule

Filed under: General Geek, World of Warcraft — digitalboy75 @ 11:05 am

 Well, I don’t play many online games other than World of Warcraft, but these rules seem to be pretty universal. These are, the Golden Rules of Online Gaming.

To quote one of them that does sorta of apply to me sometimes:

5: If you are losing, it is because of lag:

Following on from the cheapness laws, you will soon get to learn that nothing is ever your fault when it comes to gaming. Lag is a process whereby everyone in the game becomes better than you thanks to the Internet helping them become cheap. The Internet does this a lot, but never affects the enemies you kill yourself, because you have skills.

Nearly every death you ever suffer in a game will be due to lag of some kind. The Internet hates you that much, even though you are so good.

I don’t blame things on lag much, but I have lots of other options. Lately its the cat attacking my lap, the headset cord, and sometimes the keyboard. He seems to like watching me kill Fire Elementals though.
