Few things can drive a person to smash expensive electronics in a fit of pure and unadulterated rage. Having your girlfriend delete all your World of Warcraft level 80, geared-out characters while you run to the store for a pack of cigarettes is certainly one way to achieve this.
Such is the case with the video embedded below, which features the poor bastard’s girlfriend recording the experience while explaining her logic for deleting all those WoW characters.
“He thinks he’s going to be raiding all night, but let’s see about that,” she says in the video, and then proceeds to type out the required “D-E-L-E-T-E” confirmation before it processes the request.
While I’m sure there are plenty Geek-girls of Doom out there who’ll squeal with amusement (having possibly lost quality time with their own boyfriends due to the WarCrack addition), this was a pretty harsh move. Personally, I had to pause the video and psyche myself up to watch the reaction at the end — knowing it would be pretty heinous.
Gamer’s rage aside, an important lesson can be learned from all of this: “Don’t screw with your woman, or your woman will screw you… and then she won’t.”
[NOTE: It serves him right for rolling Alliance instead of Horde, which is the preferred faction for Geeks of Doom’s WoW Guild.]
I don’t play so I have zero clue about this, but is it just me or is she really quick with the WoW control navigation?
I suppose she could maybe play too and just not as much as he did, but I sure as hell wouldn’t have a clue where to even start the random deletion of someone’s accounts like that.
Not to say it was staged – don’t know why anyone would stage something that included punching their computer in the head – but it seemed odd to me.

Frankly, I can’t imagine anything more malicious than what this girl did relative to the boyfriend’s hobby. My account got hacked and my characters deleted by strangers. It took about a week to have them restored. I am curious what the aftermath of this incident looked like. Did he realize “the error of his ways”? Or the girlfriend get kicked to the curb? I would guess that the result was not the romantic evening (or week) she may have envisioned.
I am trying not to sound like a complete ass to an outsider, he clearly was neglecting his personal relationship with his girlfriend. But she was completely disrespectful to him and the amount of time, effort and cash he had devoted to his hobby. Think of it this way, what if she had destroyed his pottery or paintings or manuscripts? What if she had hacked up his garden or set his car on fire? Would her actions have been inappropriate then?
Comment by rowan — June 11, 2010 @ 8:15 pm
Holy smokes. What a horrible thing to do. While clearly the guy should be spending more time with his girl, this is akin to keying your boyfriends Lamborghini because the girl thinks he loves it more than her. And of course, shes probably right.
However, doing this is asking for violent assault. The amount of time it takes to level up those characters is real, and not fake time. And deleting it is saying–“You know what? All those hours (months or years actually) you just spent gearing up your dudes? It was all wasted and for naught. Hahaha.”
Yeah, shes in for a rude surprise, and I suspect the police will be involved at some point.
Comment by Xevioso — June 11, 2010 @ 10:14 pm
yaaaa…. don’t think i would destroy my monitor… but i would probably be majorly pissed off, keyboard would be destroyed, but sure as hell not a monitor. i don’t think i would ever trust my gf again after something like that either, knowing the time/money put into an mmo, but i played ffxi, sooooo much more time to put into ffxi than wow to max out character(s) so meh on wow, he’ll be maxed out again in like a week XD

WOW as a recovering WoW addict, watching that made me die a little inside… yet appreciate the choice i made seeing as how some succubus could have destroyed everything in a moment of vulnerability such as going to buy smokes. Needy chicks like that need to find a hobby, not attack a man’s WoW account!
Comment by NickZak — June 12, 2010 @ 1:51 am
I can see if in the set-up we learn something about him like he hasn’t left the house in 2 weeks because he’s playing WoW, or that the lost his job because he was busy playing WoW. But, her whole motivation for doing this was ‘he thinks he’s going on a raid tonight’, that’s not enough to warrant what she did. Now, why he went off on his own computer, I don’t know, that was quite extreme. I would love to see what happened next. Look for the network TV adaptation real soon!

Comment by The Dude Dean — June 12, 2010 @ 6:15 am
I get so tired of hearing about these whinny little girls who do not like how much time their boyfriends spend on gaming. I highly doubt this is a new development in the relationship, he was undoubtedly a gamer when you met him so give it a rest. And another thing, how could any good possibly come from deleting his characters? Like he is just going to stop gaming because of this. She is an idiot and her death would please me.
Why do women want to change there guy’s personality and behaviors after they get with them?
By the way, I am a girl and a gamer, I only date geeks because of this exact type of thing. Who else could understand taking a few days off of work to play new releases?

Comment by Frank — June 12, 2010 @ 1:43 pm
I’m pretty sure Blizzard would be willing to restore his deleted characters (probably not all the items), although it might be kind of hard to contact them with no monitor…
My last girlfriend and I used to share a WoW account but when our relationship got rocky she changed the password and got an authenticator. I ended up losing my main character in the break-up but then again I hadn’t played in over a year so it wasn’t that big of a deal. Our situation was somewhat reversed since she used to ignore me for WoW a lot of the time.
There is also the possibility that this video is all just staged. He might have already chosen to give up WoW and wanted to get a brief moment of internet notoriety from it all. I’m basing this on the fact that the girl had the foresight to go on to one of his characters and get rid of individual items making it harder/impossible for blizzard to recover them before she deleted what looked to be his main. She would have had to know how the recovery process works which means either she is a WoW player, she did her research or he coached her on what to do.
Comment by Demonstrable — June 12, 2010 @ 3:36 pm
Holy crap! That’s malicious. I would never do that to someone I claimed as a boyfriend! Of course, I used to game, so I know how much work you put into your characters. But the overall behavior… it boggles the mind. Why would she go to all the trouble of individually deleting the gear??
But dude, it wasn’t the monitor’s fault. Next time focus your anger on the cause, not the effect (i.e., that hateful girlfriend of yours).
Comment by Christine — June 12, 2010 @ 3:40 pm
How much money/time was spent building that character? How many monthly fees and how many months did it take? I wonder, did he build his computer for that game?
There could be thousands of dollars deleted and another thousand lost for the insane destruction of the computer, so … I wonder what the total cost really was.
Comment by W00TFH — June 12, 2010 @ 4:45 pm
I’d be sooo mad if my boyfriend did that too me, but I don’t play *too* much. But still that’s just too mean :/ I’m sure he could get his characters reactivated. She should have just joined him :P His reaction is a bit dramatic … now he won’t be able to play at all until he gets a new monitor :D Everyone has their hobbies, I’m sure she would have been pissed if she destroyed/deleted something of hers too. If he played 24/7 I could understand her being upset over it, but deleting his characters is just going to make it worse.

I’m a girl who games also, and boy or girl, anyone who would do that is someone that can’t be trusted period. Someone who could do that to a person, knowing how it would affect the person you supposedly love, would go to any length and do anything. I hope he kicked her arse out on the street after ripping up a few of her favorite things. My god, we don’t have relationships at the expense of everythign else in life we like. People should choose mates that enjoy the same hobbies, because relationships should make the 2 people happier, not stressed out. I’d rather be single than have to feel guilty about doing something I enjoy. Omg, she’s a mean bi atch!
Comment by PCPrincess — June 13, 2010 @ 11:05 am
She’d be kicked to the curb. I don’t play WOW, but that is blatant disrespect. She knew the deal, especially if he had several lvl 80 characters. He didn’t get them overnight. She’s jealous he won’t spend time with her, so she does something that bad to something he’s clearly put a lot of time in and enjoys, now he won’t be spending ANY time with her anymore, or I wouldn’t anyways. Leave it to a woman to follow that logic.
Comment by Scott — June 13, 2010 @ 11:12 am
well I guess she doesn’t want to be with him anymore. I wouldn’t date someone who destroys my hobby like that. It bet he wished his monitor was his girls face.
Comment by Albert Davis — June 13, 2010 @ 11:17 am
I call staged. That was an old monitor. If he’s that addicted he would have spent the couple hundred bucks for a wide-screen monitor. She also knew too much about the deletion process as other comments have said.
Comment by Aiesline — June 13, 2010 @ 11:18 am
I would sue her ass for damages. Video games are real property, the courts have ruled on this in a lot of places.
BTW, this seems a little staged.
Comment by Nick — June 13, 2010 @ 11:18 am
He should have told her to get the fuck out. No matter what went on before – they weren’t married, so those characters were his – not hers. She had absolutely no right to do that.
He should have just kicked her ass out for good.
Comment by Narco Taco — June 13, 2010 @ 11:18 am
Yeah…. lol i think i enjoy all the people defending this man’s WoW account more than the actual video. Who knows what the back story is between these two but the truth of the matter is MMORPG’s are a complete waste of time and money and really it’s like any addiction, too much of anything is bad for you. Although this is a terrible thing to do to someone because of how much time he spent on those characters, it’s really his own fault for a few reasons.
1. He has a girlfriend who doesn’t respect/care about his interests
2. He more than likely neglected their relationship if he was spending that much time playing WoW
3. He was oblivious to the world around him and when people are that naive about how they effect their close relationships they’re pretty deserving of backlash for their own ignorance.
Comment by Nomis — June 13, 2010 @ 11:20 am
I just worry about the girlfriend. Hopefully none of his psycho rage was directed at her.
Comment by Cody — June 13, 2010 @ 11:23 am
I don’t even play that game , but that was a shitty thing to do. I know that it takes alot of time to level these characters up , I think maybe there was a better way to handle getting your guy attention.
Comment by Windy — June 13, 2010 @ 11:31 am
Spending all hours of the night playing a video game, rather than spending it with another person in the flesh is more wrong than this chick deleting his players.
Some describe it as a hobby? It’s no longer a hobby when you put that much time into it. A hobby is not supposed to be an obsession/addiction. I think most of you are just down playing it because of how much you know it can damage a life. You may not want to accept it now, but there is life after World of Warcraft.
This is a game that should have never been created. It would be completely different if you destroyed paintings or pottery or some other product of a hobby. Only because it was only a hobby and not an obsession.
Think about it.
Comment by Michael — June 13, 2010 @ 11:31 am
1- opening a GM ticket ingame will get you all of your toon back in less than a day. Of course to do so now he needs to buy a new monitor.
2- If your gf has to go that far maybe it’s time for you to re-evaluate your priorities.
3- He was an ally and that’s pretty much what all allies deserves anyway! :P
Comment by Batzertzul — June 13, 2010 @ 11:32 am
this has gotta be staged. i mean if it were my account, i would totally get on WOW support to see if something had happened to my account. but no he just smashes his screen without doing any research or anything. Doesnt even ask the GF if she knows what happened. LAME and BORING.
Comment by stinky — June 13, 2010 @ 11:33 am
It could be staged, but, if it is it’s still good and he looks like he’s truly upset.
Consider, he only punched out the monitor and not the machine. He didn’t bother to troubleshoot at all or even maybe call Blizzard and ask what happened, and what’s to say that he dosen’t already have another that he’s upgrading to?
There’s always the what if, but, good vid either way.

This is hilarious. You stupid people take games way too seriously
Comment by Hahaha — June 13, 2010 @ 11:35 am
Nomis – We know absolutely nothing about them, or about how much time he does or doesn’t spend with her. What we do know, is that she destroyed something of his, knowing it would upset him. It doesn’t matter what it was, that she destroyed, be it a video game character or a car. She chose the wrong way to deal with what she perceived as a problem with their relationship. You CAN’T have a relationship without trust. The trust is now gone, and they will probably break up. That is what should have happened before she destroyed something valuable of his.
Comment by PCPrincess — June 13, 2010 @ 11:39 am
This is hilarious. You stupid people take cell phones way too seriously. (Insert, whatever ‘item’ or hobby you’d like into the sentence) If it’s legal and makes you happy, it’s ok.
Comment by PCPrincess — June 13, 2010 @ 11:41 am
would have just choked her out to subside the rage
Comment by jeff — June 13, 2010 @ 11:42 am
Nomis–yeah, he really freaked out, which I thought was a bit too much. However, I have to disagree that MMO’s are a complete waste of time and money. By your logic, so are a garden, many books, TV, FPS, and just about every board game in existence. These all are ways to unwind and/or relax. If you have extra money then what is the harm? Depriving yourself of entertainment would do more hard than spending modest amounts of money on it.
1. Yeah, I wouldn’t go out with a bitch girlfriend like that.
2. How much is “that much”? If he was a raider then he could play anywhere from 6 to 20 hours (I’m guessing) raiding a week. I mean, he could do other stuff, but even 20 hours a week (probably the upper limit on raiding time in hardcore guilds) is easily doable in 3-4 late nights.
3. Don’t assume that the girlfriend was constantly upset about WoW. Also, just because she didn’t like WoW she didn’t have to go do what she did.
Comment by Matt — June 13, 2010 @ 11:45 am
As an ex-addictive gamer. If the relationship gto to the point that she felt she needed to do that then it’s justified. Come on. The age old comment “It’s a game”. She’s probably done him a favour in the long run.
Comment by Nag — June 13, 2010 @ 11:46 am
On one side is lost of thousands of dollars (really?), the other side of coin is saving him from wasting his time on the useless things.
Comment by Szeto — June 13, 2010 @ 11:53 am
Michael–you can’t really know how much time he actually put into it. Also, 15 hours a week (nearing the upper end of hardcore raiding guilds, I don’t really know many in WoW to do more than that) is the least amount of time I put into tennis a week during the spring. How is it that someone like me, a JV tennis player, is fine when they put that much time into tennis or some other sport, but when someone puts some unnamed time into WoW it is an obsession? A raid is like any other team. At cross-country practice if my attendance isn’t 90% then I’m off the team and everyone expects it. You are there however long the coach says you are, no excuses. Want to hang Friday night? Sorry, I have a game. With WoW, even putting ONE night a week aside is screaming “I HAVE NO LIFE!!!!!!!!” in many people’s eyes.

Comment by jonni — June 13, 2010 @ 11:54 am
I think he should destroy that girls car or something valuable of hers so she understands what it’s like to lose thousands of dollars and years to build. But after thinking about it, he was a total loser and by looking at him, he probably deserved it. Smokers are weak losers. He thinks he’s a bad ass with his tats and can’t control his temper. Last thing I’d do is cause more damage to myself, ha.
Comment by Josh — June 13, 2010 @ 11:56 am
HAHAHAHAHAHA!! hahahaha! Take action and get your boyfriend back! I think that shit is hilarious. He was probably ignoring her too much and living together with her. !!!But, if you get that mad over a ‘GAME’ that is absolutely pathetic. Hobby or not, he needs to find a new one that involves his girlfriend if he wants to keep her (OBVIOUSLY!!!hahahaha) and not take games too seriously, competitive or not, games are designed for fun but when you overindulge it can become a bad thing. He’ll thank her for it later. Why wouldn’t you contribute a little more to other people instead of just yourself, isolating and selfishly playing that game all hours of the day? Hell, I used to play Starcraft, even won tournaments at it, and was totally addicted to it but when I stopped I began to see major improvements in my productivity and limited attraction to life. PEOPLE GET OUT THERE FROM YOUR DUNGEONS! The number one cause of asthma is stems from the invention of Nintendo and the Internet. You know why? It’s because all of our dead skin, bacteria, mold spores, viruses, and dust mites build up and multiply and dig into the carpets and chairs and blankets when we get too comfortable living in the same exact spot for that much time. It’s like a frog boiling to death because it does not feel the temperature change.
Comment by keith — June 13, 2010 @ 11:57 am
I am alarmed by the number of people who smoke while playing WoW! Smoking is horribly bad for you! :)
Also, if this ever happens to anyone here…just go to the Customer Service forums or give Blizz a call. You’ll eventually get your gear and toons back, but you’re gonna miss a few raids while waiting. It’s completely silly to destroy all of your computer equipment.

Honestly, if video games are that much of a problem in a relationship, then they need to go.
There’s a real world out there that a lot of people are missing because of a virtual one. It’s one thing when you’re single, it’s another when you have obligations. I see it as no different than drugs. If my wife were neglecting our marriage for drugs or anything else, I would try to stop it any way I could.
She essentially flushed his “coke” down the toilet. Hopefully he sees the light.

Comment by Jon — June 13, 2010 @ 12:06 pm
He can get his characters back in 2 weeks and he’ll even get a bunch of free gold and items, the WoW team is really nice to people whose characters get deleted even if you delete your own characters, they understand what can happen in real life to cause the deletion of your characters by loved ones.
Comment by Ben — June 13, 2010 @ 12:11 pm
I love how everyone makes this psycho to out to be a huge victim– if he punched her in the face, she totally deserved it. I would punch my boyfriend in the face if he deleted all my hard work over years and years, whether it be in a manuscript or a video game. It’s a controlling psychotic lack of disrespect, and I’d be more worried about what she’d do to HIM if he has the nerve to break up with her– this is serious fatal attraction stuff.

Comment by jodog — June 13, 2010 @ 12:25 pm
If she didn’t like how much he played, she should have talked to him about it. If that didn’t work out, break it off. Deleting his characters is, as said before, akin to vandalizing his property.
If the roles were reversed and my boyfriend did that to me, I would never want to see him again. It would be a wakeup call, but not in the way she probably expects: there’s no way it would result in spending more time together. I agree with earlier posters; it demonstrates a complete lack of respect, and shows how immature *she* is.
It also demonstrates why it’s easier just to be single. :-)
Comment by Amanda — June 13, 2010 @ 12:29 pm
Why didn’t she just break up with him? This is like trashing his Ferrari because she doesn’t like the way he drives. Did she think he’d take her in his arms and murmur, “You were right, sweetie”? What possible good outcome did she expect from this? This is pure evil malice. She’s damn lucky he didn’t kill her.
Comment by Creatrix — June 13, 2010 @ 12:44 pm
He’s going to get the items back. Blizz will restore your shit in situations like this, no problem. It may take a few days or a week but that’s all.
And for people saying don’t give out your password…she didn’t need it, he was logged in already. I guess you could say he should’ve logged out, but there’s nothing wrong with trusting your girlfriend.
And as some other people have said, if she doesn’t like the fact that he’s spending too much time on WoW, and she can’t talk him out of it, then leave the guy. Don’t delete his WoW chars.

Although it does seem staged, if he hits women as hard as he hits monitors, she is in for a surprise. If this was not staged, I bet the police were involved. Leveling characters like that takes real time and real money, so in that situation it creates real rage. Let’s hope it was staged for the sake of humanity.
Comment by Jason — June 13, 2010 @ 1:18 pm
@Nomis – You talk about not knowing the actual story, then you proceed to make a lot of assumptions and generalizations.
First, you know nothing about his playing habits. You can’t conclude that he’s addicted or that he spends too much time in front of the computer. In fact, he seems to be in pretty good shape, so that already puts a significant dent in your theory.
Next, your typical MMO costs $15~ a month, with a larger fee for the initial purchase and possibly once a year for expansions. Truth is, MMOs are one of the best cost for entertainment values of any activity on the market.
Finally, if the girlfriend felt the need to do this (and, by the way, she knew how to navigate WoW pretty well… so I’d guess she plays / played), then there wasn’t much of a relationship in the first place. A normal girl would simply leave a neglectful boyfriend. Instead she video tapes the act and his reaction, posting it to the internet. To me, that says there’s more of a stability problem with her than him.
Comment by Charlie — June 13, 2010 @ 1:20 pm
She needed to talk with him about it. If she’d already done that, and he refused to change, her option is to leave him. Hurting him instead of either solving the problem or leaving, is just immature, so maybe they deserve each other.
Comment by MT — June 13, 2010 @ 1:36 pm
If I was that guy I would be beating my girlfriend (justified in this case) instead of my monitor… and then I’d kick her out and tell her to never try to talk to me or come near me again.

Absolutely hilarious, especially the part where he flips out on his monitor. I don’t know why all you dorks are defending him. Clearly he has anger issues and addiction problems, his girlfriend is just trying to set him straight.

How is it that when girls do something like this they are “getting their guy back” But if a guy destroyed something of a girls and told them they couldnt do something anymore they are being controling. “:You dont own me!” lol.

Jesus, all these udiotic comments. I wonder if I am the only person that thinks that dude is a psycho, and has a serious addiction problem. That girl did him a favour. Seriously, trashing your PC because a few virtual characters got deleted?
“But maaan that lvl 80 takes ages to lvl” Yeah, and the fact that he did is another indicator of a problem. He should get help, if he didn’t kill himself over missed raids by now.
Comment by Avo — June 13, 2010 @ 3:32 pm
Wouldn’t have bothered me one bit. I would have contacted Blizzard for a character restore, have a few days off from WoW. Which is good, because during that time I would kick her ass to the curb. If she was living with me, she would come home to all her shit sitting on the front lawn.
Seriously, who needs a bitch of a girlfriend like that.

And just so you total nerds know – while you’re busy with your medievel “gamer world”, I am telling your girlfriend that she is right: you are a complete fucking moron who is wasting his time and that I would never do that if she was with me.

these video’s always feel over blown to me.
You have a week to 14 days to call up customer service and have them roll back the delete.
No lasting harm done. And in this case, he sticks it to that “girlfriend” of his.
Also. How did she know his password? And for someone that doesn’t seem to like WoW she sure was able to navigate the controls rather well.
Comment by Anon — June 13, 2010 @ 4:08 pm
The dude should have got off the game along time ago and gone and spent some time with his girlfriend, or building a real life rather than a virtual one.
Comment by sisko — June 13, 2010 @ 4:38 pm
He deserves it…WoW is so gay. Spend some time with a girl or in a fictitious land fighting fictitious creatures??? I’m gonna go with the second option because I clearly like to live an alternative life than my real one, because my real one sucks so bad. Grow up kiddos, if you spent half the time hanging out with your girls you wouldn’t have to waste your life. You could be having sex.
Comment by Alshonsky — June 13, 2010 @ 4:41 pm
For everyone asking how she knew his pass, she didn’t need it.. he left it logged in idiots.
From a female that has played.. I would have been pissed enough to have the same reaction honestly. I’ve also been on her end of the stick, so to speak. I’ve had a period when I didn’t really do much MMOing, at least not when he wasn’t, too, or something. But that’s the beside the point. But I would never do something like that.
For one, I understand spending real money on something that you love to do: games, art, cars, music, etc. Sure, it may take a week to get leveled back if you go that route, as some had said. But that’s still a week worth of more sitting there (in her perspective) and more raiding and more time away from her.
For another, I’ve put real money into hobbies, and I would be devastated if someone went and “deleted” everything I worked on. Be it my months of work on pieces of art or weeks of work on a MMO character. Putting time into something generally creates some kind of bond to it (human nature, don’t argue that point) and some kind of responsibility to it.

The right thing to do would be to break up with that girl and get her out of your life immediately. If she does that with something you care about, then she’s selfish and untrustworthy. It’s okay to try to talk your partner into giving up WoW, but that’s ultimately the other person’s decision to make, not yours. That this happened only proves that this relationship has already failed and has to end.
Girl, whoever you are, and I say this from the heart — fuck you.

oh man, as a recovering WoW addict, even I would still get pissed because I still at least like to try to the expansions out…
this is time and money invested, this girl is a BITCH!!
she really should have just talked to him or better yet dump him instead of him going through the stress and headache.
either way, not a chance in hell the guy stayed with her after this…
Comment by Anon — June 13, 2010 @ 5:27 pm
Ouch. I play WoW with my boyfriend, but not terribly often. It just gives us something to do together when it’s crappy out and we feel like killing stuff online. Granted, I understand his frustration and anger…leveling to 80 and gearing it up takes a lot of time (depending on how fast you choose to do it). Imagine having THREE of those characters deleted and gone all at once. Yeesh.
I honestly don’t think it’s staged. He looked genuinely upset and surprised. Besides, if he was THAT serious about his gaming, he probably wasn’t thinking about contacting Blizzard and getting his characters restored right at that moment. His thoughts were probably more along the lines of, “OMG, WTF? ARRRRRRRRRRGGG! SMASH! KILL!”
What she did was pretty mean and extremely disrespectful, but to a certain extent, I can see where she’s coming from. I know girls who have lost their boyfriends to WoW. I know guys who have lost their jobs to WoW. I know a couple of guys who lost both in the same week and they never thought twice about it until their bills stacked up and bit them in the ass. To some people, it can be addictive and every once in a while, a brutal wake up call is needed.
But then again, we don’t know the whole situation. She could have tried talking to him about it, but he just didn’t care. Or maybe she’s just a bitch. Perhaps it was all staged. We don’t know.
BTW – to those of you who are telling gamers to get a life and go back to their girlfriends, lighten up. Sometimes, we LIKE to play these games with our boyfriends. Does it take up all of our time? No. We go to work, we work out, we go on dates with each other, we hang out with our friends….its not like playing video games every once in a while takes up our whole lives, and its really not a fair assumption to make about everyone who likes to play video games once in a while.
Comment by Linds — June 13, 2010 @ 5:27 pm
This is obviously bullshit, anytime a character is deleted it can just as easily be restored up to three times. Also dump the bitch and get a new one, don’t waste time smashing your computer…

Comment by busy — June 13, 2010 @ 5:45 pm
… I’m sorry… but if he wasn’t giving her enough attention then she could have dumped his ass. But don’t destroy what is obviously a mad passion for him.
If you’d rather spend ya time outside than playing WoW… good on ya…but this guy is nothing less just because he’d rather be inside playing.
feel bad for him, but a quick email to Blizz should sort it out.

I used to play for a bit, so did my BF. ( I was better than him :P)
I kinda think its sick that theres tons of guys encouraging violence against the girl for this? you can have blizzard undo the delete, the girl probably knew this, she navigated wow too well for some who’d never played.
If he was that mad, break up.
She probably should have broke up with him instead of doing this, but still.
Comment by Claire — June 13, 2010 @ 6:30 pm
A few points:
How convenient that his kick of the monitor is right in front of the camera, even tho the first few strikes took it off to the other side of the room.
Any seasoned WoW player knows that Blizzard will undelete this character upon request, and if you ask quickly enough you will get your items back too.
Who is he angry with? Why is his first reaction not to just assume its some bug with the server/realm that blizzard will eventually fix? If he is angry because he suspects his g/f is the cause, then why didn’t he confront her immediately?
Comment by andy — June 13, 2010 @ 6:35 pm
I think it was awesome what she did!
Comment by Wabrona — June 13, 2010 @ 6:47 pm
Yeah, anyone who gets that violent at this kind of thing? Fucking hell girl, should have split up with him earlier, what a psycho. Get the impression he forgot that there was a life outside of WoW. I’d expect my GF to step in and do something if I ever got like this, totally pathetic. As for him sorting things out, you know, if he hadn’t freaked out and broken his screen, he can at least go through support and claim his characters back; it’s obvious for them that it’s been done maliciously, and whilst it might take a while it’ll get sorted.
And it’s not just WoW, it should be the same if any hobby gets the better of your real life commitments. Don’t know the full story behind the video ofc, but I can have a good guess at what happened to lead up to this…
Comment by Gareth — June 13, 2010 @ 6:48 pm
that girl is bullshit, out the door and never coming back. maybe she should be getting his attention somehow instead of being a lame bitch that can’t get her bf off WoW. we never saw her in the video so she’s prolly a fat bitch that he uses for money. restore characters, D E L E T E girlfreind, life resumes normally. not that WoW should be everything but my gf could definetly get my attention away from the computer if she wanted. moral of the story is, she sucks, and don’t leave your account logged in
Comment by dave — June 13, 2010 @ 6:48 pm
I really hate when jealous girlfriends delete characters or destroy consoles. I mean, really, if he’s not spending enough time with you, leave him. If that doesn’t get him to change his ways nothing will. Do you really think deleting his characters is going to get him to like you more or spend more time with you?
How would you feel if he thought you spent to much time shopping so he started throwing out all your clothes. Or maybe you like playing sports, or watching movies so he throws out your TV or DVDs?
People invest a lot of time and money into this game. Like it or not it’s an investment and this chick just delete what probably amounted to thousands of dollars spent in both time and money.
If he’s not spending enough time with you find something you guys can do together. Find something that will draw his attention. Deleting his characters is NOT the way to do it. It’s a sure fire way to lose the boyfriend.
If deleting the characters is just being done out of spite, he’s better off without you in the first place.
Comment by Dennis — June 13, 2010 @ 6:55 pm
Doing her physical harm would be against the law.
The guy should take some time off from the game.. (after request character restore).. and nail as many of her girlfriends as possible..and kick her ass to the curb..
Not necessarily in that order.
There is a right way and a wrong way to ‘help’ someone.. this is the wrong way. If he was addicted to drugs.. hiding his drugs will not change him.. that’s why they have interventions.

Comment by Emmygirlie — June 13, 2010 @ 7:21 pm
I don’t play wow anymore, but this chick obviously knows how much time and effort it took her boyfriend to level those characters and theres know way of suger coating that she was an absolute b*tch for doing this. AN aside though. i highly doubt the legitimicy of this vid =/
Comment by Raven — June 13, 2010 @ 7:29 pm
I am a girl and my boyfriend is not a gamer and i still understand exactly why she did this and where it came from. I hope however that she was doing it as a way to break up with him because it is a little too malicious for just a wakeup call. I am also 100% sure that she would have played too in an attempt to get closer to her boyfriend hence her knowing how to delete everything sufficiently. His reaction while quite violent and too destructive was also probably warrented. Being a girl I’ll give her the benfit of the doubt and assume she already spoke to him about how she felt.

Ok people, it’s fine to discuss what WOULD happen if this were real, or what you WOULD do, but this is not real. Think about it. You would spend a lot more time trying to figure it out — maybe call/email the support line — ask your girlfriend since she obviously knows how to play the game and has his password — something. The thing is, if you’re addicted, you would be VERY slow to accept that this were final. Also, unless you were financially more well off than this guy seems to be, you MIGHT smash your keyboard, but not stomp your monitor to death. It was fun to watch, but it’s nuts to think this was real.

I agree with rowan, no matter how sad a hobby may be.. it is still a hobby and you should respect it if you love that person.
If he was spending too much time away from the relationship, you should have talked to him about it rather than destroying his hobby, because that is not the way to solve a conflict in a relationship.
Comment by Alia — June 13, 2010 @ 8:24 pm
The fact that some of you guys are suggesting that if he beat her up it’s okay and she ‘deserved’ it, or that he is allowed to project such rage and violence against her because of her actions, just goes to show that WOW isn’t a good thing, and should probably never have been created.
Drug addicts react the way he did, pure frustration and rage. As someone said, she flushed his “coke stash down the toilet”, and just like if she was in that kind of situation for real (as in she flushed her druggy boyfriend’s REAL stash), it probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do. His anger is plain as day.
WOW is an addictive product, and nothing with addictive qualities is good for you.
All you WOW players out there, you should quit WOW now, while you can. Get outside, meet new people. Live, grow and enjoy life. Most of all, be happy and FREE of your addiction.

So yeah he has issues, but so does she.

Meh, I can see him being stupid and slamming his monitor. He had a tattoo so all he probably knew how to do was play World of WarCraft.
On the same note, no one has the right to go around fucking up people’s shit. It doesn’t matter if you’re a significant other. Your lives aren’t joined into one, you’re still two seperate people. And no, this wouldn’t have even been okay as a ”break up”, any woman who condones that is a dipshit.
In short, he spazzed way too much, and she is a stupid bitch. Yes, because talking to your boyfriend is too hard.

It really disturbs me that so many people think physical violence towards the girlfriend is a justifiable response. That’s just sick. There are very few instances where it is EVER appropriate to hit another human being, like say… self defense. I’m not saying what she did was right, but choking her is hardly a proportionate reaction. Anyone who thinks otherwise is absolutely sick and should not be allowed around other human beings.

Yeah, those accounts can be valued at thousands of dollars, I’d be like “funny joke b**^%, but I’ve got one too” and charge her a$$ with destruction of private property over 500$ (felony) and electronic fraud (another felony). I don’t care how emotional someone feels, it’s still private property with value- the courts would agree.

He should have beat that bitch to a bloody pulp. It has nothing to do with if he’s a nerd or not, or doesn’t spend time with him or not or if “it’s just a game.” It takes REAL time and REAL effort and REAL frustration to level up that high and it’s no different than someone like Enron coming along and immediately making your stock market portfolio worthless. It’s like a swift kick in the nuts. Blatant and intentional destruction of property out of spite should always be brutally punished.
A few posts ago some asshole named “Matt” compared this to “flushing a drug stash down the toilet.” Guess what Matt, that falls into the same category that deserves a righteous beating. People can do what the fuck they want with themselves, who are to tell them how to live? If someone wants to do heroin instead of “going out and meeting people” then they have the right to make that choice even if you don’t agree with it. So yes flushing drugs or WOW characters down the toilet is grounds for a lashing with cat of 9 tails.
Comment by JackMeoffer — June 14, 2010 @ 1:56 am
How does one go about comparing WoW to Pottery? It’s like comparing a goose and a duck. There are far too many unknown factors on both sides of the equation. Cost, Time, Practically, History, Personality, Sleep Habits, Profitable, the Relationship…. One thing I do know is Sculptures don’t usually Sculpt all night…. and if they do, a Relationship is just an unwise idea to begin with.
She would not be your passion, your ART would. IF World of Warcraft is an ART and it is his passion, then he should be wise enough not to get close enough to a women (like her) because she will be hurt. Please note the placement of IF, it is a presumption like most of us have done.

LMFAO wow so yeah this was kind of bogus, I’m a girl and I’ve been super addicted to games before and I think I would be pretty upset, but I’ve never reacted like that. I get over it pretty quick too. The fact that he acted like that is just really pathetic and I would really hate to see what he did when he found out it was his girlfriend that did it. It’s sad that some people spend so much time stuck in virtual reality they forget about reality. The reality is, you shouldn’t have a girlfriend if you spend more time playing a game than spending it with her. And no girl should put up with it to the point of having to do that. I mean…guys (and some girls) you do have to grow up and get a life at SOME point.
Comment by Sunzie — June 14, 2010 @ 2:52 am
Not saying this isn’t severely messed up, because it is, but why did he give her access to his account in the first place? Bad on him. I don’t share my passwords with my boyfriend, and he doesn’t share his.
Comment by Throckmorton Jones — June 14, 2010 @ 3:38 am
Sounds like there is a lot of WoW players who like to beat women in this thread:
“I canâ€™t wait to see the follow up video of him beating that bitch to a pulp yelling â€ For the Allianceâ€
“hope he strangled that bitch to death.”
“I would have broken every bone in both her hands, then send her ass to the curb.”
“…being a lame bitch that canâ€™t get her bf off WoW. we never saw her in the video so sheâ€™s prolly a fat bitch that he uses for money. ”
Yes, fat girls are worthless as humans, but rich!
Keep it classy, assholes. WoW is not reality, not productive, not healthy for your brain or your body. It cannot further you in life, a job, or anything else for that matter. It’s a waste of time.

Comment by Kurai — June 14, 2010 @ 11:42 am
Do we even see a moment when the girl admits to doing it? It looks a bit staged as well because there is no build up of anger, he just snaps without knowing what happened or trying to reboot the game. Unrealistic looking, but dedicated acting if you are going to punch plastic and glass materials to get an effect.
If it is real maybe the girl should be grateful that she has seen the light and got to see his anger without her head being the target. That’s way too much acting out for a grown man, maybe he deserves to have his stuff erased, good job lady.
Maybe the damn kid should of saved his characters to some sort of back-up memory. :)

So yea, he didn’t spend the night raiding on WoW. Instead he spent the night raiding his girlfriends face with his fist. God I hope so cuz she deserves it. Really, that b*tch deserves to be beaten all night long and then killed in the morning. What kind of controlling, manipulating trashbag of feces would erase thousands of hours of effort. She even deleted all the gear off his favorite character before deleting the character. Why? Because u saw him spend countless hours getting those particular pieces of gear? Sweet Jebus I hope that little vindictive b*tch reaps what she sowed there.
And the comment about how this guy is a loser pretty much, yea probably so…but guys, there are millions of women that will realize a good man, even if he plays WoW, and would be happy to have that relationship…and if your woman isn’t one of those, then ditch her sorry ass and get another. There is plenty of pussy in the world, but your WoW account is one of a kind. The spiteful bitch in this video needs to date the kind of douchebag that doesn’t play WoW…the guy on meth who beats her for looking suspicious while he stays up for a week straight..hell he’s gotta have something to do during that time he should be sleeping..beating his girlfriend up for whatever delusion works. The guy in the video will play WoW again, but until he does, I hope he spends his time on meth and beating up his girlfriend. God I hope he does. Cuz God forbid he play WoW. So he can beat on her til she moves back home with her family and then someone can give him an axe so he can raid his girlfriend’s family’s house. Look out! You’ve got aggro from the crazy bitch’s mom! Use sunder on her kneecaps with your baseball bat of determination! Now quick, pop vanish and ambush the dad with your shank of loathing! And there’s the bitch herself!!! Use douse with gasoline followed by Lighter of Illumination! You did it! Your quest has been completed and you now have Vision of Truth, and the truth is, that bitch got what she deserved! Yay! Hurrah!
Afterwards as they take him to jail, the only thing he sees in his head is the final scene from Star Wars: A New Hope and he gets a medal around his neck. Its good to be a geek. Even better to be a crazy one.
But for reals, that bitch deserves some heinous shit.
Comment by MalGanisHorde — June 14, 2010 @ 2:33 pm
But seriously, what she did is absolutely evil. It takes thousands of hours to do what he had on that game, and you can’t just get it all back, and you can’t “save it on a backup” like some retard suggested. You people that don’t play it or another game like it simply don’t understand that it takes a LOT of time and mental effort to get that shit done and you CANNOT get it back once its deleted. Sometimes they can bring back some things but I doubt they could bring back all that shit…and hell, if its that bad of a relationship just leave him…or talk him into selling those characters which would have gotten you a thousand dollars easily! No no, just go ahead and delete them like a fool. While you’re at it, go burn your purse with all the cash in it and leave your car in the middle of the interstate to be destroyed. That all makes as much sense.
I pray this is all fake. But I doubt it. I’ve been with evil women, much worse than that one, and they will do anything to anyone.

Comment by Scott — June 14, 2010 @ 6:16 pm
What amazes me is the fact that she knew what to type before getting back to the character screen so she could then use the mouse. I agree with a former poster that she probably played the game but like some got bored easily and either reduced her time playing or quit altogether. There is a right and wrong way to go about this and she definitely chose the wrong way. I hope he does break it off and moves on to someone else.
Comment by frizzman — June 14, 2010 @ 6:50 pm
I am a girl and my boyfriend does play WOW and we have had those problems of not spending enough time with me or having his priorities straight but a friend (on the game) suggested I try playing. I gave it a chance and now I do, I have a level 80 and it’s way better than fighting for my attention.
We compromise on what we are going to do, if I wanna go out and see a movie he’ll do that if he wants to play I let him.
At the times when I would get angry I would never have thought to delete anything, maybe quit his subscription but never actually follow through.
I feel bad for this guy because she did something totally wrong, that is not how you resolve a problem that’s just causing more drama.
Although My boyfriend would have done the same thing gotten mad and physically hurt the computer so it makes sense for him to go insane. I would go crazy too if my boyfriend had threw away all my shoes or or something dear to me.
Also Yes she definitely has played before that girl character may have even been hers because she didn’t do anything with that one. And it is not staged this is way to bad to have it be staged especially several 80’s that’s a lot of work and just to delete for a show is dumb.

Tbh they’re both as bad as each other. She’s a total dick for starting it though
Comment by LittleMiss — June 15, 2010 @ 7:48 am
Yeaaaa… that is sooo ridiculous! Hes retarted for doing that in the end and she should not have ended it like that. It would have probably just okay to give him an ultimatum.
I still cannot believe she did that, that is pretty funny. That takes a lot of guts!
Comment by CGREEK — June 15, 2010 @ 9:41 am
why do girlfriends think that they are in-titled to a mans time? IMO the problem isnt that he spent to much time on a game… he probably stopped spending time with her for a reason. maybe he was done with the relationship, but didnt want to hurt her like she had hurt him with all of her manipulating ways? maybe he felt that he was in-titled to sex(like she thought she was in-titled to his time)and when she started withholding sex b/c he didnt want to meet her parents, or b/c he didnt do the dishes on the 12th 3 months before, he stoped wanting to spend time with her.
if my girlfriend EVER did anything like this to me, I’d Burn Her Shoes, Books and Paintings, b/c she spends lord knows how many hours painting, reading and spending my money while I’m the only one at work making the money that we live on.
sorry about my grammar, I’m ranting b/c I’m sick of seeing woman abusing their men on youtube videos.

Comment by Dane — June 15, 2010 @ 5:39 pm
Ok, seriously? These comments are down-right disturbing. Suggesting that she should have taken the physical abuse rather than the monitor is shameful. No one deserves to be abused, especially by someone who claims to care for them. I don’t know what happened after this video, but the subject obviously has violent tendencies and anger issues and I hope the girlfriend left the relationship.
I have been in a relationship in which I was second to WoW (among other addictions) and I definitely considered doing the same thing. It is extremely painful to constantly be ignored by someone you love for a game.
When a game can cause that kind of reaction, it is no longer a hobby, but an addiction. Would we pity this guy if his girlfriend had flushed his meth down the toilet? Would we suggest that he should have beaten her to a pulp?
Comment by Holly — June 15, 2010 @ 6:45 pm
As a female gamer (who hates WoW) I think that was a really terrible, malicious, coldhearted thing to do. I mean seriously…
If I felt that neglected because my boyfriend was playing his game too much, I’d talk to him. If that didn’t work, I might, as a last resort, change his password and lock him out (and let him back in after he agreed to hear me out). At worst, I’d break up with him. But destroying something that important to him? Wtfhax.
Comment by Lotus — June 15, 2010 @ 8:29 pm
Here’s the thing:
1. The guy is a god damn r-tard for fucking up his machine like that. Open a ticket you dumbass.
2. the girl OBVIOUSLY plays because she’s so quick with the controls.
3. The girl is a malicious bitch that needs to be sent back to the kitchen. what she did was SO passive aggressive and disrespectful.
Yep Im a girl.
Comment by Nlove — June 15, 2010 @ 9:02 pm
what a tool… he should have just called in blizzards tech support and gotten his characters restored its not that hard…
Comment by ownedd — June 15, 2010 @ 10:05 pm
I was involved in a wow intervention once. i totally pwned a 15 year old’s account.
first i answered a trade chat asking for a BS combine which the character didn’t even have. i took the mats and vendored them to the blacksmithing vendor. Next i stripped the character of all his BOP epics and DEd them. and then put the crystals on the ah for 10 silver buyout. all the while this guy was getting all nerd rage on me in trade and yell and people in org were telling him to stfu.
i vendored everything he had, both in his bank and his bags and gave his 2000g to what was clearly a level 1 bank alt. then i started telling racist jokes for about a minute.
then i logged off and deleted the character. then created a character with the same name (a rogue, he had been a lock before).
before i got out even out of the crypt in deathknell that guy was spamming me, i just told him to f off and put him on ignore.
i played through the opening quests and felt a bit of nostalgia but it was frustrating not being able to dual wield. i had only ever played a a rogue on a friend’s 70, and this was before rogues could dualwield from the beginning.
as i was making my way to the undercity a GM sent me a tell andi just started telling some of the racist jokes in the middle of the third one i lost connection to the server.
when the kid got home, his mother told him that she had his account deleted and i told him everything that i did. I warned her he might go insane like try to put a remote control is his ass but she didn’t believe me. instead he drove a riding lawnmower into a pond.

Just backing up what was said by many above. This is so obviously staged. That implies that the whole thing could have been made a lot funnier and a lot more entertaining, since there was probably no other good reason to stage it in the first place.
Comment by DougUnit12 — June 16, 2010 @ 12:30 pm
no shiyt people he got mad, that was his hobby. he spent time, and MONEY to get that far. just as a girl would get mad for someone destroying her 8000000 dollar purse or breaking all the windows out of your car. just because ur a attention whore doesnt mean u can go and break and delete peoples stuff…
Comment by thtguy — June 16, 2010 @ 6:14 pm
Staged in my opinion… I had a few problems with the video.
1) She knows her way around the game. Not conclusive evidence, she may have played at some point too, but still… raises suspicions and the suspicion led me to look for more.
2) She’s deleting the characters and typing on the keyboard… and the Camera’s moving. Sooooooo if she’s typing, who’s the idiot who can’t keep the camera still?
3) Why delete individual specific items? The characters themselves can be deleted from the main screen as you saw her do with two of them. So why log in to one of them and specifically delete the high level gear, knowing you only have to delete the character…
What I think is going on:
They’re pulling a fast one on Blizz(or rather trying to) I think items of any importance have already been sold for Gold and that gold traded to another character(probably on HER account). Then to cover their tracks they’re dressing the act up as though the account was hacked, Gold sellers commonly hack accounts to steal gold to sell for real money and they also sell high level soulbound armor to NPC’s for that extra cash as an extra ‘spite’, them deleting the gear makes it appear this has happened which is why her act of deleting the gear raised my suspicions.
But why stop there, if you’re gonna do this you may as well maximize on fun, why not make a web video and pretend the GF just deleted all the characters. So for the price of a $60-80 monitor(being generous), you now have a video that is getting several hits a day online from WoW players the world over. Meanwhile calling blizz and telling them the account was hacked whose standard fix is to roll the character back money, gear and all taking generally 2-3days. So now they’ve lost nothing, in fact, they’ve gained the Gold they traded to another character on her account before deleting them, doubling their money.
Anywho, thats what I think is going on. And for her sake, I hope I’m right. If I’m wrong and that was real, she crossed the line and if he finds out what really happened(probably will by the fame of this video) then she’s opened the door to a new unfriendly type of warfare. Hope she doesn’t collect dolls, or have any of Mom’s fine china, if she does she may come home to find it all burning on the front lawn the next time she goes out, and I think he’s fully within his rights to exact just that kind of revenge :)
Either way, funny stuff.
Comment by Jeff — June 17, 2010 @ 4:42 am
Giant ass dickmove, nothing else to it. Allthough he probably should’ve played that game with more moderation, she still was in the wrong to do this. The time, and effort involved is massive to gear up all those characters. If she felt he played WoW too much, talking with him would’ve been the right move, not fuck his shit up. That goes to anything really. If that doesnt work, break up and move on.
Comment by Chris — June 17, 2010 @ 10:20 pm
Why didnt he exit the game then restart it? As any techy would think ‘Oh maybe there having database issues…perhaps if i exit and relogin all will be restored to normal.’ Instead of this fail-safe check first…he bashes his monitor. This is Gold-gain fakery at its best.

Jesus Christ on a cracker… Now, physical violence is never the answer. I’d never hit my boyfriend for any reason.
However, he should dump her ass. To all you assholes saying shit about WoW players: Shut the fuck up. My BF, has a good job, works a lot, had a car before it got totaled last week, has a LOT of friends, has a girlfriend(me), and raids 4 times a week, for 3 hours. So… no. Do I think he plays a little too much? Yeah. But I talk to him about it. I also have my OWN hobbies to keep myself occupied while he’s raiding if I’m there. Plus, I got to see him and his guild defeat the Lich King for the first time. I was actually kind of impressed, even though I hate WoW with a fiery passion. His guild members are hilarious.
I tried it, and was bored. I’m a gamer, but it wasn’t my thing. But seriously, that would be like someone wiping my PS2 memory card. I have about 300+ hours on that card from gaming. Shit. That bitch needs to be kicked to the curb. I put about the same amount of effort into my console games, and if someone fucked my shit up, I’d smash something, too. Not a person, but definitely objects. She’s a bitch.
Ha, he stumbled this to me. I assured him I’d never pull this shit.
Comment by Eris — June 19, 2010 @ 3:31 am
He can file an abuse report to blizzard, and there is a chance that they may intervene. Never had experiences with WoW but I deleted my eve character, 3 months later I asked for it back. They gave it to me no questions asked.
And yes, he deserved it for giving out his password. Blizzard would be much more unlikely to intervene. But he CAN take her to court. People have been jailed/fined for doing this before.

but yeah she would be hitting the road if i was him.That just shows a total lack of respect for his things just cause little princess was not getting enough attention.She could you know start playing with him.

wow all he has to do is call customer support and say
“someone hacked my account and deleted my characters” and they will say “we are terribly sorry we will restore them” and they will give all its stuff back and suggest to change his pass and etc. trust me he will have his characters back by the end of the week lol she is ignorant for even thinking that would solve anything
Comment by DARKiREAPERi — June 22, 2010 @ 9:03 pm
Alright, so I’ve read a couple of comments, I play my self and if my boyfriend did that to me I would freak out. It’s taken me 3 years to get my 4 80’s to geared and raiding status and even if its a simple call the Blizzard (WHICH ISN’T THAT SIMPLE, Took me 3 days to get a hold of someone when my account was hacked! Then I was locked out for 2 weeks!) the first shock is almost like loosing a dog you’ve raised from a puppy only to find out someone took that dog and killed it. Some of you think, ‘DAMN It’s a game!’ and it is, but think of the hobby or object you hold most dear and thats the game to some people. Now, he didn’t have to go smashing his stuff, but hell he now has a reason to go and UPGRADE! I feel for this guy, I really do, and if I was him, that bitch would be tossed out on her ass faster than she’d realize it.

Comment by azster17 — June 24, 2010 @ 11:51 pm
Ok… on both sides… Gurl she had a point but im pretty sure people can actually talk about these things, if he didnt understand she shoulda just moved on with life before ruinin what ever was left of his… the guy… you need to calm down…hell you didnt even log into your character correctly to figure out if everything was gone… no you kicked you computer in a nerd rage. Calm down try to figure out exactly before you even start goin in , hell i would have thought it was some glitch goin on and spoke to a gm real quick. not kick my decent build computer i probably paid about 1k for. and spend time with your gf guy… or dont have one at all… women are crazy and yet superior…dont for one moment think men were superior…and this is comin from a guy :) lol

Comment by Britt — June 27, 2010 @ 4:44 pm
Ok, was probably staged, but if not…
Ok, the guy over reacted, but imagine this, a guy is working on a hot rod, say a show car, and has been for years, he’s VERY close to getting it completed, but his girlfriend thinks he spends too much time on it and not enough on her. He goes to the parts store, and behind his back she lined up someone to buy it and haul it off that day, or worse, she later gives him a video of it being shredded.
How would YOU react?
I’m willing to bet he does indeed have a job, as he had to get that computer somehow, probably not her with her attitude, and he seemed to be in good shape so he obviously gets out, and my guess is he went with her to do crap he really, REALLY didn’t want to do because he loved her, however he dare have a hobby of his own? Is he only supposed to sit at home and veg until SHE wants to do something?
At least his rage went at that monitor instead of a person.
As for those saying the guy just PLAYING WoW was wrong, well, you’d fail to see the irony that you likely found this via stumbleupon, even if it were pointed out.
I don’t play sports because I hate sports, I don’t work on cars as I don’t know jack about cars, I don’t do pottery, painting or woodworking as supplies get expensive. Gaming is a cheaper hobby than most of those. I also take care of fish, cook, clean, do dishes, take care of the lawn because my dad is away and my mom needs the help, so I admit I don’t have a job due to disability and because my mom needs the help. Should I just be expected to veg until my mom needs something, or do I nee to just be stressed because I do more than I really should have to?
Also, regardless of what she did, she deserves to be yelled at, not hit, or at least have one of HER hobbies wrecked, if she doesn’t think hobbies are for losers if this is real.

If she didn’t want him to play the game,then why didn’t she tell him instead of deleting his characters and his gear? She’s at least lucky, he didn’t smash her face or something because he seem’d really pissed off.

I’d kill a bitch though.
Comment by Melissa — July 6, 2010 @ 3:58 am
Having only sampled the game, I don’t know the amount of time required to get those characters to their shown strength (gear included), so I can only make a really bad guess.
So lets guess it took him a year of playing for his first character, and about half a year for the other. 18 months x $15/month = $270.00 . He should be able to demand that she pay him for the money spent on the character, and she should be forced to pay it, without exceptions.
As for how to get the time and effort back. Can’t be done without really crossing a few boundaries that you can’t un-cross. She’s definitely not worth going to jail over, so it seems that all that time and concentration will have to be accepted as a loss. And considering how finite an individuals time is, that’s a pretty huge blow to their overall life.

I was thinking the same thing as the first post… she was pretty quick with that navigation. How did she know how to delete individual items? Either she plays or she’s watched.
My second thought is that Blizzard should really put in a feature where instead of the user typing “DELETE” that the user inserts their password instead to avoid this. Granted, the girlfriend shouldn’t know the password for this but it’s better than just typing delete.
Third, yeah, the dude can get those characters back. It is upsetting but not enough to destroy my computer. That’s just going to hurt my budget. Of course, it’ll take a while to get them back but you get them back none-the-less.
And I hope she dumped him after this. He seems rather…. violent.

Comment by Maulie — July 9, 2010 @ 9:05 pm
I play WoW now, so I can understand the frustration that would come from someone deleting my characters. However, I used to HATE WoW. I was engaged to a guy who lived and breathed WoW and FF. I enjoy gaming just as much as anyone else, on a healthy level, but when he started preferring gaming to sex (which he previously very much enjoyed), it got to be pretty bad. I have never in my life met a man who would pick video games over sex. Needless to say, things didn’t end well there. So there’s a line between playing the game, and living the game. Regardless of the fact, whether or not he had them before they dated, or whatever, he should have paid more attention to her. But on the other hand, she should have dumped him (because at that point, talking doesn’t work), and moved on. Let him obsess over his level 80 mage. Oh, did I mention my ex was just as violent? Yeah, domestic violence is never good, and even lamer when it’s over video games.

Comment by Ana — July 11, 2010 @ 11:38 am
I’m disgusted by seeing this, and I personally hate the way that WoW can, for all intensive purposes, suck away hours upon hours of time. I have friends who play it, so I know what kind of time-frame that things like this can take place on, but really, this was a girl committing cyber-fraud by signing onto an account which wasn’t hers and maliciously deleting characters that aren’t hers to delete. Thank god for backups, but she deserves some real punishment for screwing up like that. If she feels neglected, she can easily step in while he’s playing and do something less drastic, or even better, leave the fuckwad instead. I’m playing both sides of the field here, the guy’s a fuckwad for spending more time on a video game than with his girlfriend, and she’s committing a felony that’s both on a state and federal level.
Sorry about the french, but really, if one has to stoop down to malicious intent, who’s the real culprit here?
Comment by Alexei — July 12, 2010 @ 2:07 am
What she did was pretty spiteful, but what scares me most is that people are actually condoning the violence he displayed in this video and would condone him assaulting her. As someone else mentioned, this is highly indicative of a sick mind.
If you EVER think it’s OK to hurt somebody, especially over something as petty as this, you need to see a therapist because you are mentally unhealthy.
@ Alexei: Good God, a felony?! I seriously doubt she would be prosecuted for any kind of felony over WoW. On the other hand, his display of violence and aggression IS considered domestic abuse and he could have been detained for that. You people are all twisted.
A man who is capable of that degree of violence shouldn’t be in a relationship with anybody – if it is real, that is.
“Sheâ€™s damn lucky he didnâ€™t kill her.” OVER WOW? Was this a serious comment? You think it would be NORMAL or you would EXPECT someone to murder over a video game? You need to see a professional, pronto!
Comment by Andy — July 12, 2010 @ 8:01 pm
Actually, there’s nothing wrong with violence against THINGS that you own. It is NOT considered domestic abuse to hit your own monitor.
We never see how they interact with each other. That may well have gotten the urge to hit something out of him. Most men are capable of that degree of violence. But capability isn’t relevant, the issue is one of control and the majority of us either control the impulse such that we do nothing, or channel it out in some non-destructive/hurtful fashion.
As for the rest… Well, we have no idea of his situation, he might be completely addicted or he might be a one night a week type person. The only thing this video shows is that she is twisted for destroying something that someone else has put their time and money into. And once he found out, he should definitely get rid of her, assuming she didn’t leave him immediately after doing this.

“he clearly was neglecting his personal relationship with his girlfriend. But she was completely disrespectful to him and the amount of time, effort and cash he had devoted to his hobby. ”
-Call it an intervention; good thing she rec’d his reaction for that stupid f*ck to see himself in a drug rage once he’s thru with wow redrawal.
Besides, “disrespectful”??? The amount of time effort and cash dedicated to a kiddies game?!? Fecking kidding??? Dont call it a hobby, its an addiction! You can buy crack, weed, porn, booze or even a server account, its all the same shite.

If she is angry that he spends to much time on WoW then she should tell him that, if he doesn’t do anything about that and it really upsets her she should dump him and find someone better… she’s going to end up dumped now that she deleted all his stuff… and surely its better for her to dump him.

I’d watch the video but YouSlow can’t buffer more than a few seconds at a time and I don’t have all day. Does anybody know of a good video site (aka NOT YouTube) that hosts this video? Furthermore, why does ANYBODY post video on YouTube? I don’t see the point – nobody can watch it without waiting a half hour for a 2 minute video so why not choose another site?
Oh, and don’t blame this on my connection or my computer – both are more than adequate and YouSlow is the only site that constantly buffers – netflix, hulu, vimeo, etc all work fine.

What a fucking retarded bitch. You can hear that little twang in her voice that just screams “I have no idea the gravity of what I’m about to do.” The only thing to be learned from this is “Never take out your rage on your valuable monitor when your girlfriend is in the house.” I would have tied that bitch to a chair behind me and make her watch me level up 3 new lvl 80s. There is no “Neglect” here, only PMS and a peanut in the head of that girl. My sympathy to the dude, hope you gave her what she deserved.

Assuming this was real, he can and will get his characters back. It can take up to 2 weeks though. He now needs to go hit that bitch in the ass all night.

I totally understand why this girl did it.. As a girlfriend of a gamer I too have been negelcted for raid nights (7 nights a week from 5pm to god who knows what time in the morning) OUr sex life has greatly been diminished, believe me there is no point in waiting up until 2 am for 5 minutes of sex that may or may not be lack luster. I too have thought about doing the same thing. But i also realise that this was a dick move. When I met my boyfriend I didn’t even know he played wow until 6 months in.. then 9 months he was playing 2 nights a week.. 11 months- 3 nights a week. 2 years in I eat dinner alone almost every night, I go to bed alone everynight, and I have sex alone all the time.. I honestly feel like am a single girl with a roommate.

Comment by Me — July 21, 2010 @ 7:25 pm
if hes boyfriend was spending too much time playing., then they should talk about it., what she did was wrong.,
Comment by toniomayhem — July 22, 2010 @ 11:15 am
I have a WoW account. Though I haven’t played in a good few months. I can say though that what she did was wrong for server reasons. As some have said, he spent a lot of time making those toons most likely. He spent money on the game. You also grow fond of your characters to a extent as well, not so much as someone having a pet or something but you still do.
What she Should have done is pretty simple, if he is spending “to much time” on the game she should have talked with him first, not saying she didn’t she may have. If she did and it didn’t help she should have just broken up with him and not stuck around like a idiot, but then again most people are idiots like ones that stick with abusive partners and don’t leave them. Which also there is a good chance he is abusive now or will be ‘if he doesn’t kill her when he finds out’ later on in their relationship
What his reaction should have been. Raging on the poor computer like a fucking ‘excuse my language’ idiot was… well idiotic. If he has that many 80s he should know that Blizzard would give back his chars and his stuff within a week or 2 maybe a Month at most.. which when I got hacked it only took 2 weeks, they vendered, auctioned off and deleted chars. So yea hes stupid.
So what I’m trying to say here is kids… don’t be a douche and talk… honesty is a VERY important thing for others and yourself.

My boyfriend & I both play, but share an account? NO WAY!!! Maybe he’ll find a girl that likes raiding all night, though it could be difficult since he is Alliance. FOR THE HORDE!!!
Comment by Tiffany — July 23, 2010 @ 1:56 pm
well, I can see why he would rather spend time on World of Warcraft than with her. She’s a complete bitch.
Comment by hittman — July 23, 2010 @ 3:02 pm
hope he smacked her harder than he did his monitor
Comment by anon — July 23, 2010 @ 10:40 pm
Jesus, my girlfriend threatened to do that to me once (jokingly) back when i played wow…she knows that if that had have happened to me, it wouldn’t have been the monitor that copped a beating like that.
Comment by Anon — July 24, 2010 @ 2:16 am
That’s the exact reason I don’t play WOW. It’s worse then heroine in terms of addictiveness. Sure what she did was fucked up, but only the 2 people in the video know the real story. Maybe he was ignoring her for weeks on end to play WOW. Maybe she’s just a sadistic bitch.
Either way this video almost wasn’t worth watching. I thought I was going to see him kick that girl in the head or something. I was starting to become disappointed when I saw nothing happen after 4 and a half minutes.
When I realized the video was almost over I thought “He better fucking break something before I finish this sent… Cool.”

Warcraft does not love you back
I go to AI for game design and even i was always with my girlfriend.
How could you choose a game over a girl.
Honestly…. Props to the girlfriend, should of left him to procreate with the USB port.
Comment by Julian — July 25, 2010 @ 2:27 am
I have never played WoW, but I can see how it consumes one’s time, what his girlfriend did to him was an awful way to go about getting him to stop playing. The guy, on the other hand probably spent too much time on the game anyway. Nobody should have gotten hurt. It was all a painful and destructive way to get attention. She didn’t sound too nice either, she was probably just an aggressive control freak.
Comment by Zach — July 25, 2010 @ 11:30 pm
How much time was put into that game is more than a few simple days. you gotta realy play a long time to get that stuff. i played that game for only a year and still so much money put into it and stuff. i would kick her butt out the door. so he got addicted but, you gotta have sympaty for the guy. i mean really. what if you put so much money in time into something, then ur stupid gf freaking ruined it? it is so not a good 3-4 days to get maxed out. months/ years
Comment by Kvin — July 26, 2010 @ 3:47 am
I completely feel bad for this guy. #1 for having all your money and time just completely getting destroyed kinda. #2 cause he destroyed his monitor. #3 because how couldnt you feel bad for him when u have your complete hobby destoryed. and yes, video games are a hobby, even if its addiction/obsession. just something to get you relaxed and cool off and meet with buddies. #4 cause his girlfriend is/was(definitely) a total bitch. #5 cause he has to go thru a hassle and crap with blizz
Comment by Kvin — July 26, 2010 @ 3:59 am
All the people making of all stupid things, wow characters out to be ‘work’ or ‘gardening’ or even ‘art’ are mising the point by light years, and totally deserve having their significant other delete their game saves for that kind of pretentious shit.
Clearly, none of the idiots here ever actually did any work from home contract jobs, gardening or creating art pieces. OMG GAMING IS HARD WORK GUISE AND NOBODY TRULY UNDERSTANDS ME. Piss off.

Durr hurr, instead of leaving a guy who doesn’t ‘spend enough time with me,’ I’m going to ruin his gaming account. What a cunt.
Comment by Rin — July 26, 2010 @ 10:00 pm
And now think of people who work their whole lives to get stuff and money, and when they die its gone quicker than the characters were deleted. Stuff is ephemeral, get used to it. I sympathize for the guy, yes, but some lessons are learned the hard way.
Comment by LW — July 27, 2010 @ 2:05 am
Typical, that everyone should realize World of WarCraft is indeed a time-consuming video game. The worst invented MMORPG in history, but to be honest, any MMORPG is strictly time-consuming and cash-hogger. No matter what features it has, you will be paying.
Respectful to gaming as I am, Blizzards idea of purchasing WOW (The CD and Game itself) and the paying a monthly bill to play online is just retarded to begin with. Now, I don’t play MMORPGS, and If i do, It would last the attention span of an ape. Give me 1 week and im tired of it. If I need to make friends online, I rather play a cooperative game or RTS. Not some endless piece of crap like WOW.
Now if my girlfriend has attempted to delete my games, she would fail epically anyway. Not for MMORPGS, she can delete those, I encourage it actually. However, normal games, single player or multiplayer with storyline based aspects. She would fail hard. First, I got extra harddrives to backup, encrypted password protection. So even if she manages to delete 2 hours of download time. I consider it nothing. Its not like I can wait 2 hours to restore a game. ;)
As for the Girl in this video: Good Job, I agree do it.

I play Warcraft myself, so in a way I understand the hours he logged to the game, thus his upset at what happened. Then again, Warcraft is really something to be enjoyed in your off time, not in place of time with your loved ones. His girlfriend really should have just left him and found someone who would pick her over a virtual world.

Sucks to be him it’s real. But that’s why you shouldn’t tell other people your passwords. Especially to a game that you love.

lol. Fuck this guy seriously. This is hilarious. WoW nerds are the worst. I’ve known so many and it’s like watching those meth commercials, only instead of them getting skinny and covered in scabs, they get fat and covered in grease.
Comment by Natalie — August 24, 2010 @ 4:52 am
He has anger issues.
Anyone with half a brain would have known it was the girlfriend and not the computer. What she did was spiteful, petty and retarded. If she is, quote, “is sick of it”… then do the right thing…forgive him and then leave.

for all of you who say its staged, id love to see why a staged video was removed because of copyrights by the kid in it O_O
if youre staging a video would it not be to put it on the internet or have people see it
Comment by Dippity — January 24, 2011 @ 6:23 am
They are both stupid, and in fact everyone raging over what she did is stupid too.
Lost all of your characters ? So what ? What’s the big deal ? A painless half an hour or even less if lucky wait for a GM response and a “Hey, another person got onto my account when I wasn’t present and thought it would be funny to delete my characters, can you restore them for me ?” and hey! They’re back!
If you so fail at human communication you look at your characters being deleted as days of needing to re-grind rather than an hour long process discussing the matter with a GM then it’s your own bloody fault that it’s such a big deal.

Replace WoW with something else people put time and money into and they should get the picture.
Comment by Steve — December 11, 2014 @ 12:37 pm
You seem to be under the impression that only basement dwellers play WoW.
I play WoW, my g/f plays WoW.
We’ve both worked, made art, created dresses, gardened, travelled, cooked for the fun of it, played sports and tried new hobbies and done all the normal stuff you say is nothing alike WoW. Take it from those that know, it’s all the same because it’s all ‘pointless’ time, effort and investment for our own value and amusement.
It doesn’t matter if you dislike WoW or don’t care for it, deleting the characters of someone who does is just spiteful.
