U.S. guild takes 6th, behind 5 European guilds.

WoWInsider had an interesting article yesterday. (They’re all interesting, but this one I’ve commented about before.)

US guild Death and Taxes has managed to snag the US-first Illidan kill and thus finish all available raid content in the game. Their US-first puts them world-sixth, behind European guilds Nihilum, Forte, Last Resort, Curse, and For the Horde.

I’m just really curious why the Europeans dominate in this virtual world.

With drive like that, (first to Illidian, first to 70, first to 60?) the Europeans should rule the world.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

P.S. This just came into my head. Byproduct of a longer post I trimmed before publishing. From William Shatner’s version of Pulp’s Common People:

I said, pretend you’ve got no money.
She just laughed, and said
oh you’re so funny. I said, yeah?
Well, I can’t see anyone else smiling in here.

Are you sure you want to live like common people?
You want to see whatever common people see?
You want to sleep with common people?
You want to sleep with common people, like me?
But, she didn’t understand,

She just smiled and held my hand.

    You do know that Common People was written by Pulp, don’t you? 🙂

    The William Shatner version does have some comedy value, but the original is much better.

    I didn’t know that. Cool. I’ll have to find it. Yeah, the Shatner version is amusing given his delivery. And the transitions between his and Joe Jackson’s voices is amazing.
