Ghost cities in World of Warcraft

Great article on abandoned cities in MMORPGs as World of Warcraft.
The only thing I would like to add here is that Darnassus was never really crowded (and I liked this).

With yet another expansion in the works, there’s no doubt that the boom and bust cycle of WOW’s cities and wilds will continue. Players will move on to new places for new quests and leave behind the spaces where millions have spent countless hours. Those empty expanses will remain intact, pristine despite their abandonment. That perfect preservation makes these ghost towns all the more eerie, but in the silence is a chance to see the quiet beauty that was there all along.

World of Warcraft/Wikipedia

Ist Wikipedia gar kein Lexikon, sondern ähnelt eher "World of Warcraft"? In einem Rollenspiel wie WoW kabbeln sich auch keine echten Orks oder Elben, sondern Leute, die so tun als ob. Um den Status zu erhöhen, sammeln sie Erfahrungspunkte. Genau so sei das auch beim anderen WoW, in der World of Wikipedia, sagt Dariusz Jemielniak, Professor für Organisation an der Kozminski Universität in Warschau

SpOn: Wikimania-Konferenz: Wikipedia ist wie "World of Warcraft" (2010)
