Everywhere you go, even the most mundane and quiet of places, there are always a pile of corpses, and bones littered about. As you take your deep breath, and attempt to go about your daily fun, someone in the distance attacks you. You defeat the offender, and as you proceed to move along, the offender returns with five of his friends, and unleash their great furiousss anger upon thee. The sounds of pigs whistling, and banjos have yet to abate. Soon Horde and Alliance begin to attack each other in such a fury, it turns into a warzone, and that mundane place you were simply wandering about, is no longer accessible.
In a nutshell, that's pretty much the typical example of what the world in WoW is like at the moment. Do you like it, or hate it?
