And the award for the most deserving death goes to...


The Darwin Award has been around since the mid 1990s. It was a chain of e-mails listing nominees that ensured the longevity of the human race by removing themselves from the gene pool through lethal acts of stupidity. Juggling hand grenades, using a lighter to check the flammability of a propane tank, jumping out of a plane without a parachute, you get the idea.

Apyllos of the Blackhand server has taken the Darwin Awards and applied them to WoW. He wants to hear the story of what player, including yourself, has died due to their own bad judgment. We're talking players that Purge their own buffs in PvP, fall off cliffs while fleeing enemies and forgetting that you've logged onto a Horde alt while riding into an Alliance town. Ouch.

Have you ever seen or done something that would qualify for a WoW Darwin award?
