sooo not cool.
I don't know why you guys think its so funny... They were close friends with her. They couldn't go to her actual funeral. They live in different places across the world. If for some reason they did, it would be incredibly awkward...
I'm pretty sure it was just a joke in the beginning that grew to an actual event. Some person probably said "hey, lets have a funeral" and everyone else probably went "thats a good idea".
I cant beleive some of you actually find this funny! I'm absolutely appalled by this, honestly.
She dies, her guild obviously cant attend, as they are far away, so they hold an online service, and these immature asshats make fun of it?! Rediculas...
Hmm... Probably not. Believe it or not, people who play online games CAN die of causes other than dehydration from obsession. <insert gasp here>
What you said is disrespectful. She died and you're not sorry for her because she played WoW? Grow up. You've presumed she was a radical, when most people who play WoW play responsibly.
I'd actually seen this video before, and I wasn't really shocked. Anyone would do this kind of thing for a bit of attention - attention which you're giving them. I think it's a bad thing for anyone to do... but it's going to happen. People will do horrible things in order to get a bit of recognition.
i used to play i quit at the start of the year and honestly if i herd that someone was having a funeral in game and it was a pvp server i would be so torn if i should go or shouldn't yes it would be the ultimate victory for the alliance as people back in the medieval times did this all the times and we used to see stuff on the news at gangs attacking at funerals
That was kinda mean but I understand why people would find it funny, surely they should have held it in a non pvp area?
For the record, this video is beyond old and does not hold a torch to this:
Did she drop any loot?
this is sad
espically since they attacked it
this makes me ashamed to be alliance
Ha! Quite an old thread Alexbel. Welcome back to WiiChat.
well it was on the first page so i posted here anyway
People are ridiculous, and why do half the people online have to be, "internet tough guys" eh? That video wasn't even kinda entertaining, I do understand the reason for the online funeral, but like other people have said, why did the assholes do that? Makes 'em feel tough I guess.
I hate it when something like that happens! The stupid asses who interupt anything to be cool and tough will do anything such as dusturbing an online funeral or something, I have never been to an in-game funeral but I HAVE seen one when I was a runescape player. Shame somebody always has to run and spoil everything.
The only member that I know has died is ABC. It will be one year on Tuesday since his death. RIP ABC :sad:
We should have a WiiChat Members Obituary section. =(
That really sucks. Whoever involved who sabotaged the funeral really have no ounce of respect whatsoever and should be ashamed of themselves, even more of actually recording the event, as if that's supposed to make themselves feel "awesome" or something. They should be lucky they can still live out their lives among those they love, as we will never know when it's our time to go. This is serious stuff, and what they did was childish and downright inhumane.
*sigh* Oh well. I, for one, will never give the incredibly unregulated nature of internet communities benefit of the doubt. If something can go wrong, it always does.
It would be nice, but it will probably get abused. Has WoW not taught you anything?
That would be a bit creepy.
As for these players paying respect for a friends, I see nothing wrong with it. As others mentioned, they probably don't have the ability to pay proper respect ie attend the funeral or her grave etc. So, they chose to do an online ceremony.
Shame something in an online game funeral or something important like that HAS to go wrong.
