I have heard a lot about World of Warcraft. Would someone tell me what the game is and how it works?
What is the story or plot and is it only a multiplayer game, or does it have a single player to?
I heard to play a multiplayer game on WoW you had to pay a monthly fee?
WoW is a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). There is no single player, it is a multiplayer RPG game played over the internet. At present there are just about 8 million subscribers. You have to pay a monthly fee of $15 bucks to play. I think the first month is free, a common thing with MMO's. After the first month you get charged $15 bucks a month to continue.
To be honest though, I wouldn't bother with the private servers. Was an advocate for about a year as really didn't like the idea of paying to play once I'd already bought the game. After a while though I did play on the official servers and never looked back. They are truely how the game is meant to be played and the private servers kinda ruin the game a bit. But hey, like the guy above said, they are free.
