I have yet to see anyone in Europe either kill or runaway over this game...

Surely KIDS shouldnt even be on this game...

Don't pull that "Only In America" knee-jerk reaction. Plenty of other countries go through this disturbing stuff. Take a look at Korea, for instance.

who the heck approved this:S

anyway dont let 12 years old play world of warcraft. its like feeding them posion. they slowly move away from the real world. everyday he says. only one more hour mom! and then its 23 hours a day. mom gets worried trying to protect him from this posion. but its to late the kid has gone over to the dark side. only time will tell when he will return. from its Madness!

Well I'd run away too I mean it's a game! Can't the parents understand that we NEED this game to live and that if taken away we'll all slowly die!! This could mean the end of the world... of Warcraft.

alright that kids got issues though time to buy a basketball or something.
