    Oh for god's sake.


    Link: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8447168121288910882

    How do [gv] tags, in the link you posted you will see a long number near the end, following docid=, that number is 8447168121288910882. Put that number, 8447168121288910882, in between [gv] tags and you get the video above.

    So there.

    Funny, but most likely approved by Blizzard. Amusing how many on WoW's own forums really don't grasp WHY it was funny, because it poked more at players than the actual game.

    Wow....check the wiki page on that episode. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Make_love_not_warcraft

    Some ultra-nerd has taken the time to identify all the equipment used in the game and making corrections towards the way the skills and gameplay is portrayed.

    That's kinda what I meant. It was clever of the SP Team to twist all the details knowing what rule mongers most gamers are.

    Fantastic:

    Because the in-game portions of the episode were filmed with Blizzard's assistance, the characters are able to push the operational limits of the game by performing the forbidden actions listed below. However, the entire premise of the episode centers around a violation of the game's limits, so this is most likely due not to the inattentiveness of the writers but due to the nature of the plot.
    Category Goofs

    Cartman

    * While fighting the Renegade, Cartman uses Mocking Blow. This special attack meant to draw a hostile NPC's attention has little effect on a human controlled enemy.

    Stan

    * Stan's character is wearing a Frostwolf Battle Tabard, an item available to buy only for Horde players.

    Kenny

    * The skills Kenny is instructed to use in the game suggest he is a Hunter, a class not allowed by his obvious Human race. He may actually be a Rogue or a Warrior instead.

    Randy

    * As with Kenny, Randy cannot be a Human Hunter either, his shield suggests that he is a Warrior.

    Others

    * The Renegade seems to be a Mage, but wears a Plate helm. Mages are restricted to cloth armor.
    * Butters states that only four races are available. This is only true if one ignores the Horde, as the rest of the episode seems to do.
    * There is no spell that summons four Scorpids, as the Renegade does.

    Misc

    * The known character names (bigboNed3 for Cartman and Luvs2SPWGE for Stan) would not be allowable to capitalization, numbers in the name and appropriateness issues.
    * The episode appears to ignore the concept of Soulbound items, both with Randy handing the Sword of A Thousand Truths to Stan and Cartman instructing Stan to give his cloak to Kenny. Most high powered items in the game become Soulbound either when equipped or picked up and cannot be traded.
    * In the game, thrown away items (such as The Sword of a Thousand Truths at the end) disappear rather than remain.
    * Cartman's plan to level up is flawed. Boars, like all other creatures, have a fighting difficulty and experience point award relative to their level vs. the player's level. At some point, the boars would become "trivial" to the boys' characters and grant no experience at all.
    * The boys' characters seem to wear armor of a level too high to allow them to be able to go up 30-50 levels more.
    * It is impossible for characters to attack other characters except in certain special locations and circumstances (and even duels do not kill a character, but leave them with one hit point). This is a deliberate incongruity.
    * In the real game, the maximum level pending the next expansion is 60. At this level, the Renegade could have easily been taken care of by the Admins or the several other Level 60s on most servers. This is most likely also a deliberate incongruity.
    * There are over 100 separate servers for World of Warcraft with limited interaction between them. One Renegade could at best inconvenience only one server.
    * Crushing an enemy's head into a bloody pulp as depicted in the final fight is impossible in the game.
    * Contrary to implications in the episode, character death is at best a minor inconvenience in World of Warcraft, overcome with time, effort and/or in-game money. One implication of this is that the boys accomplished nothing and the Renegade would be back at full strength less than five minutes after the end of the episode.
    * In one shot there is a close up on the XP bar with a counter with the amount of experience counting upwards as a number, with the bar filling up smoothly. The numbers wouldn't be there without a mod, but you don't see this in any other shots of the game. Also the bar wouldn't fill up smoothly and constantly, but jump up everytime XP is gained, as would the numerical counter.
    The discussion page on Wiki is pretty good too...

    Too Much Irrelevant Detail

    Proposal: Remove the table of characters, most of the game-inaccuracies stuff and so forth. Prune it down to a standard episode article for South Park, with a few lines of trivia tops. Reason: Episode is light hearted satire, and since it is not intended to be canonical warcraft material, most of it is crap that can be removed.

    -SteveGray

    I agree, this really isn't needed. If everyone thinks it should stay, perhaps it should just be shortened to the profiles for the main characters?

    -Mat

    I can't believe there's so much excessive detail on this page that people adamantly defend that a character, who is supposed to be a complete, lifeless slob has an apartment that 'resembles the main character of GTA's and it has a palm tree too!' really should be in this article, and demand on changing it back when I delete it.
    LOL!
