What World of Warcraft (WOW) Is

World of Warcraft is a Fantasy genre Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game or MMORPG. Players battle monsters to gain experience in order to advance in level. In Burning Crusade, the level maximum is 70. Players can talk to other players in close to real time and make friends provided the friend is a member of their faction. The humans, night elves, dwarves, and draenei are all members of the Alliance. The orcs, trolls, tauren, blood elves, and undead are all members of the Horde. The Alliance and the Horde are bitter enemies, though in later game schemes are forced to cooperate. It is a wonderful study in complexity in that a very simple concept has been teased into a virtual reality, compleat with an economy of its own.
