Pretty spot on statement, Leeroy surely wasn't the first one ever to aggro too many whelps and wipe the group. They did however see the potential for a comical video and went for it.

This.

They did, you didnt.

Re: I know who really started the Leeroy thing

"Other members of Pals For for Life have subsequently more or less admitted that it was planned for publicity, but also insist that it was still a faithful recreation of an actual incident."

This article is where I get the meaning of reenacted and staged. Members of you own clan have stated that it is a recreation of an actual incident. I had started this trend in the rookery doing almost exactly the same thing. After waiting 10-15 minutes for my group to come up with a plan for the rookery I ran in shouting Leeroy Jenkins busting open as many eggs as I could. Leeroy Jenkins being the name my cousin would give the cops whenever he was questioned for anything without a ID on him. It seemed like a good scapegoat name at the time. I did this because I had to get to class and why not finish the run laughing. I did not say "At least I have chicken." at the end of it. The chicken line is the only original thing he did in the video. My PC was a potato at the time and wouldn't have been able to run any capture software along side the game giving me a quality I would find acceptable.

Pals For Life did have the good sense to turn it into a video. For years I just laughed at how big it's become and how many times it's referenced in TV shows and other youtube videos. As I said in the first post, I don't hate you guys. The only thing that has gotten to me about the whole thing was reading Ben was offered a game tester job and turned it down. That was my teenage dream job. Things didn't turn out to bad. I did move up from running the mixer to directing live news broadcasts at my local news station. Our crew has won a couple local Emmys. It still leaves me wondering if my career would be in games and not TV.

Re: I know who really started the Leeroy thing

Well, seeing as none of us have a damn crystal ball we don't have the answer you're looking for. You also have zero chance of getting into the guild (which seemed to be the whole point of this thread other than making unfounded claims?) just because you've annoyed the ever loving fuck out of us. The one guy left from back then literally laughed at your claim. I think it's probably best for your own mental health to stop worrying about 'what might have been' and start worrying more about the 'what is'. If you really want to know what it's like to be a game tester, go out and do it. I feel like this is a weird fucking post that should be titled 'Return of Leeroysappren' at this point.

I tried to end on a joke after being nothing but nice about this ordeal.

Did you not get the joke? ELI5? If you enter the cave (link) there is a dragon. If you look up the link it brings you to a funny comic further explaining the joke. Hence, p4l = dragon, warrior outside cave = me. I was also silent about this for 10 years.

If anyone should be name calling it should be me. It was started on a tauren warrior and it's been turned into a human pally in two different blizzard games. Permanent character as a NPC in the game. A Blizzcon invite (cheer for the white ones Ben!). A invite to the Warcraft movie premiere. Then there is the money from whatever merchandise blizzard allows you to retain the rights to. FUCK.
I bet Bens character Leeroy got a player name change just to make that video, and blizzards knows, that's why the only rights your left with is the name Leeroy Jenkins and your clan name.

That would be quite the claim, since he used it in another game prior to WoW, it fits in with a theme with other OG pals, and most relevantly, there were no paid name changes back then. We're humoring your creative writing exercise by having this conversation, at least try to make it believable.

Re: I know who really started the Leeroy thing

You can keep writing, trying to make any sense but the truth is nobody here believes anything you say or even care. Why dont you stop already? You are making yourself look bad, nothing else.

It's ok dude, they got it wrong too. Also, http://trenchescomic.com/tales

Read some of that to see how likely an invite to be a game tester resulting in a career in game audio design would be. Blizzard may or may not be better than industry average, but odds are that you would have been better off passing on that as well. If you have any regrets about your career path, you still have a resume, and now have actual work experience under your belt, can't hurt to shop that around and see what happens.

Considering I was playing Horde-side on Laughing Skull (with Banana Boyz and then Unfadable. You can hear me screaming "Heal Mitz" in the Banana Boyz Nefarion kill video on YouTube if you need proof that I was around in ye olde times) and I frequently played with BBz and Unf's pvp teams that queued against Pals in Warsong Gulch, I can say with unequivocable certainty that Leeroy's name was always Leeroy, that Pals made funny videos as a guild activity for months before and after the Leeroy video, that Pals didn't expect or anticipate that the video would become viral and that what little $$ gained from it was exceptionally limited. I used to have a screenshot of me standing over Leeroy and Polarity's dead bodies in an Alterac Valley from prior to the video, unfortunately it was lost with most of my early WoW files when my laptop shit the bed in 2008.

I can't speak to what any discussion with Blizzard was, but considering it says in the EULA pretty clearly that all the things related to WoW are property of WoW, there's not really anything to be bitter about. Pals got some notoriety for awhile but the guild of Pals today is full of different people who have, at best, tangential relationships to the people in the video and Ben himself. Your anger is misguided at best, delusional at worst and you should probably seek therapy.
