Maybe it’s because I never really ventured past Diablo and have no real clue how World of Warcraft plays (something I’m really quite proud of), but am I the only one who can’t get their head around Peta’s WoW endeavors?
The animal rights advocacy group this week announced that they’d be taking another avenue in the fight against the Canadian seal slaughter. According to the group’s blog, this Saturday WoW players will have the chance to combat a team of four Horde seal killers.
“Thrall refused to ban the slaughter of seals, despite multiple requests from the Alliance to do so, because Orgrimmar stands to make a large profit from the fur,” writes guest poster Ryan Huling from peta2. “Activists from across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are banding together to put a stop to the atrocious seal slaughter.”
“Anyone who slaughters baby seals for their fur must surely be in service to the evil Lich King,” Ryan finished.
Those interested in taking part must be in the WhisperWind realm in order to fight. Once in the WhisperWind realm, players should head to Northrend, where you will find a zone called Howling Fjord, where the baby seals live on glaciers and boats float in the fjords. This will be the battleground to stop the slaughter.
Battle takes place Saturday, April 11, at 1 p.m. EST and players are advised that they must be a Level 70 or higher to play.
Despite the fact that this is a rather odd medium for PETA, WoW players are pretty adamant that the servers won’t hold up.
“Whisperwind is NOT a pvp server, most likely you are just going to be a witness to the biggest in game seal slaughter and you will be powerless to do anything about it,” writes Bumcrum. “Whisperwind is already a very high population server, which means most PETA members are just going to see the queue screen like the Ron Paul people did,” he adds.
Anyone planning on joining in?
