"I like W.O.W. because you play a character with a background and a story line, and the stories are amazing, which is why there is such a huge fan base," she said.
She's obviously lying.
Seriously, WoW is nothing about your character having a background or storyline.
WoW is all about leveling up from 1-70, getting epics, learn to be obsessed with the tiniest numbers (yes, 0.2% more crit is a humongous deal and that extra 12 resilience will help you survive a second longer in an arena battle) and pleasure every honourable kill and camp the guy who ganked your alt for hours.
It has a huge fan base because it's addictive for the reasons I just stated. Every seasoned WoW player should know that.
