I like to do a bit of light role-playing in world of warcaft, I play on a RP-PvE server, but most of the people I meet who play WoW, seem to think that role-playing in a MMRPG is taking things a bit to far, (even most players on my RP server for some reason!?!) they sometimes seem to go out of their way to ridicule and heap scorn on us poor Role-players, in a fashion not unlike the disdain expressed for the furries in the geek hierarchy
For me light role-playing mostly means speaking in character and respecting (and not disturbing) the RP events of other players
I can understand that a lot players only enjoy the dungenhack aspect of WoW, a bit like the storydriven pen and paper role-playing games versus old school “we don’t talk to NPC’s” hard core D&D, but for me role-playing adds a extra layer of enjoyment to my WoW experience
So what I’m interested in:
Do any of you Role-play in an mmrpg?
What do you think of others who Role-play?
Do some players take it too far? (Wedding ceremonies in SW cathedral)
Any experiences from other games? City of heroes, Conan, etc….
maybe this is only a issue on the euro servers…
(I have nothing against furries )
