Your Uncle Dave’s gaming experience never got much beyond Doom II and Myst, so this level and depth of play is lost on me. Sweet hardware setup, though. It’s probably powerful enough to cure cancer.

A lot have asked me, why create so many? The main reason is to invade Stormwind and Ironforge when they reach top level. I’m sure the Alliance will put up a big fight when that happens. We’ll see how it goes. If they don’t make level 70 before Wrath of the Lich King, then it will be at level 80. That is my main goal. That will probably happen after I’ve got some PvP gear from the battlegrounds. I’m also planning to do some 25 and 10 man raid instances but that is secondary to my PvP goal. Of course I’ll be doing arenas too to build up PvP gear but I’m not expecting to do that great there because I’m way behind in gear right now. I need to get to level 70 first, then level 80 and by then I will probably have all green gear while most others have been doing the battlegrounds and arenas.

It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule. Not bad considering I’m looking at it like it’s a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft.
For my keys to send to all instances of WoW on my 11 computers, I use Octopus 1.3.2. Maximizer in Octopus allows me to start up all WoW instances at the same time or any individual instance such as if a WoW instance has crashed. It also allows me to shutdown all of the computers at the same time.

    All I can say is that it is nice to know of somebody that may be less sane than I am.

    Compared to running a big truck or van, a big bike, golf, high end sports fishing or hunting he may be right but why all the riggs? You can only play one at a time. Um maybe he needs them to run more than one character at time because the site can ID him?

    *cough* virgin.

    Is there a special fan system for that rig? I guess there would have to be to blow away all the body odor filled air away, because this guy obviously doesn’t use soap.

    Lets see… $5711/year in subscription fees, plus electricity, plus broadband, plus computer hardware. Lets say he blows about $12k/year on his hobby.

    Still cheaper than a wife.

    @OmegaMan: 1 box running 36 WoW instances? No way. It’s far far cheaper to buy multiple machines than invest in a machine powerful enough to pull that off. 11 computers running 36 instances is still quite impressive if you ask me, they are probably all very well specced.
