The Occult Nature and Addiction of World of Warcraft

The Addiction to World of Warcraft

Considered as the most addicting game on the market — World Of Warcraft claims 12 million monthly subscribers and holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular MMORPG by subscribers. Blizzard Entertainment released WoW on 9/2/2001 that reduces into the Occult numbers of 11:3. World of Warcraft is an online multiplayer role-playing fantasy game, and considered the most addicting online game. World of Warcraft is completely immersed in occult symbolism and satanic themes. Activision Blizzard, Inc., formerly Activision, is the American holding company for Activision and Blizzard Entertainment.

The numbers of subscribers will increase with the new system offering free WoW subscriptions up to level 20. The BBC reported that the move is seen as a way of attracting new players to the game of WoW.

If you don’t believe that World of Warcraft is extremely addiction to the point that people lose friendships, jobs, and end up in economic ruin, check out WoW-detox.

Excerpt from the WOWdetox:
I stopped playing over 2 years ago but I STILL think about it, its affecting my concentration, at a time when I really need to study my final exams that will determine my future are coming up next month, gotta stop looking at wow sites and youtube vids, get ready for a real life.

The Occult Addiction of World of Warcraft

From the Guardian
At the height of his addiction Ryan van Cleave had little time for his real life. Living inside World of Warcraft (WoW) seemed preferable to the drudgery of everyday life. “Playing WoW makes me feel godlike,” Van Cleave wrote. “I have ultimate control and can do what I want with few real repercussions. The real world makes me feel impotent … a computer malfunction, a sobbing child, a suddenly dead cellphone battery – the littlest hitch in daily living feels profoundly disempowering.”

Despite thoughts like this and even the dissociative episodes in supermarkets, he did not think he had a problem IRL – gamer-speak for in real life. But he did, and the reckoning was coming.

For millions who play, the lure of games like WoW is hard to resist. Players create an “avatar,” or online character, who operates within a startlingly detailed storyline and graphic world. Playing makes the gamer feel like the star of a sci-fi movie. Characters form teams and go on quests to find items, conquer lands or achieve new levels.

After self-examination, Van Cleave pulled himslef back from the bridge railing after admitting the problem. He went home and deleted the game from his computer. For the next week his stomach and head hurt and he was drenched in sweat – like an addict withdrawing from drugs.

There are many WoW users that spend up to 60 hours a week within their powerful addiction that is based on the Occult.

World of Warcraft is one of the most enthralling games around – there’s an element to it that just grips you and makes it difficult to stop playing. As a result, the game is a truly fascinating experience, and many people have become hooked on the fantasy world of Azeroth.

World of Warcraft

The key point about World of Warcraft is that it is not simply a game; it is an alternative world. It is a recreation of life, and it has built its reality in as much depth and detail as possible. World of Warcraft functions as an alternative to the real world and is one of the most involving games yet designed. Players use it to get away from reality and stress and to do something very different for a while. It is a hugely entertaining title of course, with much to offer to gamers.

The Lower Entities and The Occult thrive in living a fantasy, and it is through humans that the lower entities attach on to and live through.

WoW is completely an occult game that draws the soul into fantasy land and is designed to feed the lower entities.

      The trick is moderation. An uncontrollable addiction is when a person’s life becomes unmanageable. This post is about the addictions side that many players are experiencing.

    I don’t understand the relevance of this post. Any game can be addictive and make you spend tons of hours playing it, nothing new for now. What’s the occult side of WoW? Only the fact that they released the game on 9/2/2001 doesn’t seem enaugh. People getting addicted to a game have serious problems and should consult some specialists. And yea, I am a WoW player (since 2009) and don’t understand how can you spend more than 2(maximum 3) hours a day playing that game. It’s just boring and repetitive and useless waste of time. If you could bring some strong arguments about the occult side of it, it would be extremely appreciated.

    I agree with this article, but one thing is off.

    The “WoW has 12 million players” thing was never true, it was a publicity stunt by Blizzard. Blizzard, and their parent company Vivendi, have always been marketing experts. WoW has only ever had a maximum of 3-4 million subs, no more, no less.

    @Gabriel: Crack can be addictive too, but it’s absolutely terrible for your overall health. Just because it’s popular, doesn’t mean it’s good. Video game and internet addiction is real, even psychologists, or the American Psychological Association (APA), as well as psychologists around the world acknowledge it as such.
    I’m not saying to not play video games in general, but it’s important to not play them often. Employ the wisdom of moderation and the entertainment video games provide will not work against you.

    One more thing, do not belittle the lower entities or foolishly assume it’s fantasy lore/myth. They’re quite real and they do feed on your spiritual entities. If you want to truly enjoy WoW, do not get lost in the game or get too attached to it. It is entirely possible to enjoy WoW without allowing lower spiritual entities to feed on your soul. I know it sounds crazy and untrue, but it’s quite real.
