I thought this was as stupid as "Franklin beat Chuck, so feed Chuck to JON JONES!" on BE at first:

It's been a hard time for Pulver. His gym in Idaho struggled to get off the ground and his obsession with World of Warcraft, an online multiplayer video game, became something friends described as more of an addiction than a pleasure. They would describe seeing a Pulver who looked more like a ghost than a man, pale as the fallen snow, unable to pull himself from his computer."

But then I looked on Sherdog and this was posted there in 2006:

Jens Pulver plays World of Warcraft
Apparently he doesnt just "Play" WoW...he "PLAYS" WoW.Hes a grand marshall.For those that dont know he probably spent minimum 8 hours a day for many many months to reach that rank.lol


Is it true? Could Pulver be the first high profile pro athlete struggling with WoW addiction? Is it time to go "server storm" whatever fag company it is that makes this game(s)? DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT COMPANY IT IS?

 WoW addiction can be just as serious as drugs or alchohol.

My friend's brother lost his job, marriage and house over WOW. I'm sure he would have found another way to fuck up his life even if he hadn't found that stupid game.

My bro was a big WoW guy. He actually had to quit because it affected so many areas of his life due to the amount of time he spent. He seriously had to treat it like any other addiction.

I started playing recently again, after a 3 years break. It can be addicting, but you just gotta fight back. Gonna go log in now ->

I know plenty of seemingly normal guys that will skip doing real shit because they scheduled a "raid" or some shit. 40 hrs a week on that nonsense, seriously.

What is it about WoW that people are getting addicted to? I used to play but once i'd got to the maximum level (i think it was 80 at the time) i'd be struggling to find a reason to play anymore...

If Pulver has somehow mixed himself up with the French, this will not end well

Total Warcraft noob here....

What is it that makes the game so addicting?

Like I seriously have never not once ever seen/played the game for myslef.

The only thing I've seen about it aside from commercials is the South Park episode parody of it, which was fuckin HILARIOUS.

A few guys I used to work with at Circuit City 5 years ago played it, but they never seemed like freaks/addicts about it?

Guys its no joke... 2009 I spent over 212 days on EverQuest. I had to quit and leave my computer at home and come to the Hitsquad. I would start playing around 11am and would not even look at the time till around 2-3am . I was sick. I would stay in on weekends and skip training and it showed. I was 2-5 for 2009. When I got away from the game I went 7-1 for 2010. It was like being another person. I would never find myself not haveing fun on the game.

Christ, sounds like you're talking about crack.
I'm glad I've never played it and now that I'm reading all of this, I never will.
