I know, you're just jealous because you can't do any decent amount of roleplay. :-)

Okay I'll bite.

You do realise World of Warcraft is labelled an MMORPG. People enjoy RPing and it's something different that can actually be quite fun. If you have never done it or tried it more than on a level 1... you really can't have that much of an opinion on it.

Loads of people find playing WoW to be incredibly nerdy and beyond stupid, they don't get why anyone would waste their time playing a computer game when they could be outside having a real life, yet here we are...

I'm sure you're a troll, but in case you're not there's this little thing called different interests.

ofc i dont want to rp, im not a retarded guy who can easily be amuzed by pretending that my character actually is someone, and the concept itself is really stupid.

what i dont understand is why people do it, its not even fun the slightest -_-

like a wise man once said, talking to a rock is smart, you can learn the truth behind yourself.

It's true, though. Way to skip the point of my post by the way. I answered your question quite clearly: Different. Interests.

Just because YOU don't like it or find it fun, doesn't mean that everyone feels that way.

Once again.. because of different of interests. Not everyone likes the same things you do and they like things you may not... that's how life goes and how life always will go.

Think of it like writing a book, most writers enjoy writing, thats why they do it. Tolkien was a lecturer. RP, is creative writing, in a community effort, where other peoples tidbits effect the ongoing story of a characters life, and said story effects other stories, to create an entire universe, each and every RPer is in a million stories, even if its just as the guy at the back of the bar. RP is a story, a story all RPers write, together.

I hope that explains the subject of Role Playing, in an elegant manner, its not just pretending to be a character, its being a part of something bigger.
