Yesterday I posted some thoughts on WoW Insider's Breakfast Topic concerning 'Do you talk about WoW at work?'. Nyxrinne (of Touch of Death) commented and the brief conversation that followed got me thinking about the aspects of WoW that are applicable in the real world. By this I mean things like communication skills, team work and leadership. All of these are desireable traits. However, talking about them in the context of gaming on your CV may not impress a possibly employer.
These thoughts soon reminded me of the Race to World First (2011) WoW documentary. A guildie told me about this documentary back in September 2012. It's really interesting and something that I think every WoW player should see. It also touches on the real-world skills you can gain from playing WoW and public opinion of the game and it's players.
Below is a brief description of the documentary and a link to view hope. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
"Race to World First' documents the struggles, triumphs, and frustrations of the 25-man World of Warcraft guild Blood Legion as it prepares to beat the newest bosses released within the game by Blizzard Entertainment. This is a global battle between 12 million people and competition is intense. As the race gets underway, the film broadens in scope to include players from Finland, Russia, Australia, Great Britain, Greece, and Germany. They discuss what it takes to compete at the highest level, and the rivalries and life/game conflicts that inevitably arise. 'Race to World First' redefines the image of the gamer, focusing on the commitment, cooperation, and tremendous diversity within this culture. For gamers both proud and closeted."
