World of Warcraft 'dames & dorks' gallery

Celebrating 15 years of making gamers look like nerds

The Warcraft series has been embarrassing normal gamers (and enthralling nerds) for 15 years. That’s one-and-half decades of orcs, elves and archmages. With more than 11 million players regularly getting their crawl on, World of Warcraft is easily one of the most successful computer games of all time. And we’re all the poorer for it — both literally and metaphorically.

In our humble opinion, World of Warcraft combines the worst aspects of gaming into one horrendously nerdy package (indeed, it topped our Videogame Shame File list, which is really saying something). The hackneyed D&D mythos, the tedious grinding, the Leetspeak, the elf babes, Leeroy Jenkins... there’s a lot to be ashamed of here.

But far be it for us to besmirch the festivities. To mark this ignoble occasion, we’ve collated a gallery of the most embarrassing WoW-based art in existence. (Did we say ‘embarrassing’? We meant awesome.)

Disclaimer: In case there is any confusion, the following slideshow is meant to be satirical. We obviously have the utmost respect for World of Warcraft and its diverse community of players. After all, how could 11 million people be wrong?

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
