In one of my more daring moves, I sporadically decided to sign up for the WoW esport variety show, which included a footrace across Azeroth as one of their last events. Somehow, I managed to get in, and that’s how I found myself at midnight (my time) waiting along with a few others to start sprinting away on a level 10 vulpera monk.
It was the first time they had run this event, and there were some hiccups, but I do have to mention that the community was top notch. Everyone was helpful, friendly, and eager to partake. No one was upset at the late start, no one ranted and raved about it not being the smoothest ordeal. We all had enormous fun, and the discord channel was filled with voices of people who are *incredibly* passionate about this game. It made me smile. Of course it could have also been that I was a bit loopy from the almost 3h wait I had subjected myself to, but hey, it was all in the name of fun.
I streamed it over on my twitch channel, and my viewers took it upon themselves to keep me entertained and awake. While I did not come in first place (or second, or third..) I also didn’t come last! I had a pretty good time, and it was just lovely to see everyone come out and discuss what mount they were going to use, how they made their class selection, and a variety of other subjects that I didn’t even know would be relevant. I hope to see more events like this in the future, and I truly hope everyone had a great time. Sleep? Who needs sleep!
