8. The Ballad Of Leeroy Jenkins

World Of Warcraft’s most (in)famous player has to be foolish paladin Leeroy Jenkins, star of a disastrous, screen-captured dungeon raid by the guild PALS FOR LIFE that went disastrously wrong when, ignoring the stat-crunching tactical discussion of his team-mates, he charged into the The Rookery of Upper Blackrock Spire yelling his battle cry “Leeeeeeroy Jenkinssss!!!”. Which caused all-round panic and the swift, hilarious deaths of everyone involved (“why do you do this shit, Leeroy?”). Would be really funny. But also short. Still, at least he has chicken.

It could be like the great, short-lived series Ace Lightning. More

2 Leeroy Jenkins
That was absolutely hilarious hearing all those nerdy guys sitting in their mom's basement planning this military-style attack that they've failed with before (waaayyy too much time on their hands, lol). Then old Leeroy just goes "fuck it", goes in and all the nerdy guys are droning: "oh fuck...oh shit...oh god." More

3 Leeeeeroy Jeeeenkins
They should so make that into a film, the tagline could be 'At least I have chicken.' I don't know anything else about the game other than Leeroy Jenkins made me chuckle, oh and the South Park episode is funny too More

4 I am worried
There is a 99% chance that this film will be a huge budget box office failure... and WoW fans will get even more grief from average joes! More

5 Rather dissapointed ...
... that Duncan Jones has picked up the gauntlet for this. I've enjoyed his work to date (Moon, Source Code), and it would be a great shame for him to get tarred if this turns out to be a turkey. There's an army of players out there just waiting to pan this movie. Still, who knows? He may pull it off... better yet he may change his mind! More

Here's a suggestion Blizzard - if you're adamant about making this movie, get your ridiculously talented bods to do the whole thing in CGI. That way, you keep the look of the games and we don't end up with actors in awful prosthetics. As a side note though, I think making a film about WoW is a rubbish idea. More
