World of Warcraft Addiction Out of Control

World of Warcraft

I’m not sure how many of you have already heard about this madness, but I’m about to share with you something that makes me slightly ill. What you see before you is a gaming set up for ONE person, who with the help of several programs runs 36 World of Warcraft accounts simultaneously. The owner of this menagerie of obsession went out and purchased each account a copy of Wrath of the Lich King upon release date. Why do all of this? What could possess anyone to spend over $5500 a year in subscription fees and $1500 per expansion?

Apparently, said owner of the accounts doesn’t want to depend on other people for raids. Finding other people unreliable for such wonderful events such as raiding Stormwind for a few hours to teach those “NoobAlliance” what true skill actually is. So he sends all 36 of his “minions” to drop the bomb upon the Alliance. I’m going to end this article with a quote from the owner of all this obsessed madness due to becoming ill. Enjoy.

A lot have asked me, why create so many? The main reason is to invade Stormwind and Ironforge when they reach top level. I’m sure the Alliance will put up a big fight when that happens. We’ll see how it goes. If they don’t make level 70 before Wrath of the LichKing, then it will be at level 80. That is my main goal. That will probably happen after I’ve got some PvP gear from the battlegrounds. I’m also planning to do some 25 and 10 man raid instances but that is secondary to my PvP goal. Of course I’ll be doing arenas too to build up PvP gear but I’m not expecting to do that great there because I’m way behind in gear right now. I need to get to level 70 first, then level 80 and by then I will probably have all green gear while most others have been doing the battlegrounds and arenas.

It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule. Not bad considering I’m looking at it like it’s a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft.

32 of my shaman are level 61. One shaman that I had before I started the 32 is at level 70 along with 8 other level 70 classes that I had. My mage, priest and druid are in the center of the circle of shaman in the pictures but they are kind of hard to see. I’ve also got some mages and priests that I’m currently working on that are level 23. Once they are at level 31.9, I will stop working on them, get 16 of them to level 60 with the recruit-a-friend bonus levels and work on the shaman again.

When Wrath of the Lich King is released, I plan to be at the store when it opens and will purchase 36 copies of it. With tax, it should be about $1500 for all of them. Then the shaman are on their way to level 80 along with the priest, druid and mage.

By the way, I have 9 level 80 shaman created on the Murmur PvPrealm in the Wrath of the Lich King beta. I mainly tried it out to see how well my computers would work as they are. With the exception of one my desktop computers, I should be fine with the hardware that I have.

I use 3 addons in the game. CT_MapMod is used to give me locations for quests, etc. ClassIcons is another addon that I use to show the class of the target. It helps for PvP encounters. Then the last addon I use is SSPVP2 which is excellent for displaying timers and other things while in the battlegrounds.

For my keys to send to all instances of WoW on my 11 computers, I use Octopus 1.3.2. Maximizer in Octopus allows me to start up allWoW instances at the same time or any individual instance such as if a WoW instance has crashed. It also allows me to shutdown all of the computers at the same time.


  1. Technically this is impressive, but realistically it seems like it’d be a headache to manage everything! I will say that’s a beastly setup though.

  3. Very good point, awesome website. Hey, did you guys hear about Blizzard planning to use Real ID on their community forum? I guess they realized that that is no way to win at wow, as they reversed the decision. Now we can all resume enjoying wow without worrying about compromised privacy. And they can go back to focusing on Cataclysm. BooYAH!
