I can't tell if the article is being sarcastic. But, liberal professors teach far worse things than WoW economics.

Console fanboys and MMO haters aside, there is quite a lot of depth to WoW and its economy. Its a very good model to show the laws of supply and demand cause whenever a new patch comes out buffing/nerfing a profession the prices will change to reflect new levels of demand.

Hell id like to see a course on the effects of inflation of daily quests, and superior gold rewards from regular quests.

Yes, they do teach far worse things. The funny thing is the term "liberal" refers to a person who is open to new ideas and open-minded. Modern far lefties will jump down your throat if you happen to be even the least bit conservative and will quickly prejudge you as a "redneck" or "racist" or "homophobic" just because you might have a different viewpoint even if you're none of those descriptors. They just want to discredit you and see you slink from the room.

WoW is a game, nothing more. If this guy wants to make a course to try to pervert the game into something that it's not, then let him be damned.

Wow, I'd love to meet this author so I can smack him one for comparing me to a communist.

That's all I have to say about this article. Pun intended.

<<At FantasyStar in Gamerzone:
Quit whining you little girl. I bet if the author made a joke about Bush you wouldn't even have posted a comment.

I couldn't give a sh1t about Bush or Obama. I'm pissed that the author has the balls to use words like "Communist" so loosely like it's a common insult and to compare it to us video-gamers no doubt like your typical political-know-it-all. If you agree that video-gamers are Communists well, then me and you will have a problem on a personal level.

What! of course it's a joke, how did this get approved?

"Of course these bosses are not malevolent at all. They are fine and upstanding figures who merely wish to spread their righteous values around the world (e.g. WoW’s latest progenitor is the Lich King, who seems to be considered worthy of assault simply because of his unwavering belief in unfettered plagues and the triumph of the Scourge – cynical substitutes for capitalism and democracy respectively)."
