Welcome WoW

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008 | Backstage, Common, Team | No Comments

And welcome all you readers round the world. I’m Andreas “Greeki” Athanasiadis and I’m the World of Warcraft researcher in the team. Perhaps you know me from events or TV shows on GIGA, but I’m not here to tell you my vita. I’d like to tell you more about World of Warcraft and how we want to involve WoW in our documentary movie login2life.

Today many shows or even serious newscasts try to shed a bad light on MMORPG’s. They say World of Warcraft makes you addicted, but seriously, can a game make YOU addicted? There must be more than that, and I can of course say that you could be addicted, but it’s not because it is WoW. The real reason is the social aspect of these games. It is about the tribute you get when you do something hard. You do as well have the feeling that you really made something. Many people including me can’t say that they are making something really cool in the real world and that is what we also want to feature in Login2Life. MMO’s can provide satisfaction, satisfaction which could not be achieved or not so easy in our real lifes. We all in the team think that MMO’s will be the future of gaming, but not only gaming, it will be also a part of our communication and life. My guiding principle for MMO’s is simple: Alone you are nothing, only together you could reach more than you ever imagine. This principle says nothing different than: You have to be SOCIAL. Imagine the whole world would be social and try to work together instead of against each other. I don’t want to say that MMO’s will make the world more social instantly, but everything counts and MMO’s will help us live together on this big planet.

Now I have to stop dreaming and come back to reality. Perhaps you know it already but christmas is coming. (If you did not know get out and buy some presents for your friends :) ) Blizzard of course knows this and they implement this event into their game (There are many other events. Check this page) . So now we celebrate the Winter Veil Feast in Azeroth (The “Planet” in World of Warcraft is called Azeroth) and Greatfather Winter visits the capital citys of the Alliance and the Horde. I will show you more in my next blog, which will be online in a few days.

PS: Today we are shooting some christmas scenes in WoW.
