Since November 2004, World of Warcraft has enjoyed unprecedented success, with millions of users and stories written since the launch of this MMOPRG. It’s easy for alumni to remember some of the popular player names that have made the game so much more interesting in this fantasy world.
Over the years and with the release of new versions of WOW, many famous names of WOW have remained in the minds of many, names of players who did something different. We have gathered some of them here to keep their stories alive for future generations of players.
Swifty: A mistake in plant variety protection
The first name that comes to my mind is Swifty, he is a dreaded PVP player. Swifty has been able to improve his skills by exploiting the mistakes of the game itself and using unique tricks to become very popular in WOW for a while by using a night elf. Swifty is now dedicated to streaming on YouTube and Twitch on WOW, Lineage II.
PVP Angwe the Troll
For many, Angwe was a terror in plant variety protection, a very stealthy player who made a name for himself in WOW. He had a favorite hunting ground, few dared to be seen in Angwe’s footsteps, many were his victims, and what made him most famous was the “trolling” he did for them.
Kralnor and the crime stick…
We praise a player who became famous not for his game, but for a mysterious stick. Kralnor is a user of the WOW forum, made a publication many years ago about a unique and mysterious stick that he managed to get into WOW, so the morbidity that generated in the community was his theme, which became very famous.
Those who know WOW and have been playing it for many years understand that it is an extremely difficult game, especially when they visit the dungeon. For Dysphoria, it seemed like a piece of cake, because her solo adventures allowed her to accomplish a variety of accomplishments in high-level missions. This was the case with The Massacre, a five-player mission, but that didn’t stop Dysphoria from completing it alone.
Leroy Jenkins, perhaps the first memory of the game
The importance of WOW is so great that the first memory of the game may be due to this video game. Leroy Jenkins is a famous WOW player, one dares to say that he could be the most famous player ever, all over the world. He is known not only by fans of World of Warcraft, but also by those who are not.
His fame is not due to his skill in the game, nothing like that. His name is famous for a video that caused a sensation on the Internet in 2005. That year, WOW had a clan called Pals for Life, of which Leroy was a member. The clan chose to play rookery, an extremely difficult area, even for the most experienced players.
An area where the problem wasn’t a huge invincible enemy, but rather eggs that exploded on contact with the players, the result of the explosions being dragons that attacked everyone around them.
In the Internet video, Leroy’s clan developed an almost perfect strategic plan to meet this difficult challenge. In the video you can see how the members of Pals for Life took this mission seriously. But from one moment to the next, the ruthless Leroy called out “Leroooyyy Jenkins” and rushed into the egg zone – whatever the plan might be – causing the death of his companions and himself in the game.
At the end of all this, the comrades who were angry at Leroy’s recklessness complained to him very angrily, he simply replied, “At least I have chicken“. Since then, Leroy has become a famous name in WOW and on the Internet.
