While we all like to revel in our gaming glories
and fond memories
, sometimes we mess up. Sometimes we mess up really, really badly, in memorable ways that leave us cringing days, weeks, months, or even years later. So when matteog2 started a thread on Reddit about everyone's worst WoW fails
, I couldn't help but wonder about my own WoW
fails. Which was the best... or worst of them? Would it be the time I decided to rearrange all of my keybinds just before a raid? Or when I decided to join the Molten Core raid on my laptop, so that I could raid from the living room and watch TV? (Spoiler alert: my laptop turned out to not be particularly WoW
-capable, at least not when in a 40-man raid.) Though they didn't seem funny at the time, looking back now there's not much to do but laugh.
So now I turn the question to you, readers: do you have any particularly notable WoW
failures you'd like to share with the rest of the class? Trust us, the embarrassment wears off eventually, and one day you'll be joyfully recounting these stories to young World of Warcraft
newbies. Why not get started now?
