Posted on January 2, 2008, Shawn Sines World of Warcraft March for Ron Paul
Gaming Politics covered the World of Warcraft avatar march in support of presidential hopeful Ron Paul. Last night, a line of avatars marched out from Iron Forge on the Whisperwind server to show their support. In general the marchers were organized and well behaved.
The political statement wasn’t well received by all players on the server. Some merely complained of lag or the parade detracting from their gaming experience. There were predictably Anti- Ron Paul griefers who spammed channels and assaulted a few marchers with rude emotes. Some players have called to ban further political activities on WoW.
Read GamePolitics’ account for the full picture of the first and what may be the last political event in WoW.
