World of Warcraft / SQL Server

The World of SQL Server is a bit like Blizzard’s MMORPG, World of Warcarft. If you haven’t played World of Warcraft, it’s a complete virtual alternate world. In both worlds…

·        you can specialize (e.g. warrior) or be a generalist (e.g. druid)

·        you can go it alone, but it’s more fun and you'll be more successful with friends

·        you need both tactics and strategy to be survive for the long run.

·        you need both experience and training to advance your skills.

·        you need experience to tackle the more difficult quests.

·        you can be easily mislead by what you read on the Internet.

·        you spend some time on interesting quests, some time being lost in the cities, and some time just grinding.

·        you can have fun slaying Merlocs or cursors.

·        you'll rarely see someone pull off something new, but when you do it's amazing.

·        you can be easily pwned if you’re not careful.

·        you experience a virtual world. In World of Warcraft you play a storyline, in SQL Server you design the story.

And, in both worlds, you can explore for years and still not see it all.
