Too funny.... LEEEERRROOOYYY

Check out this video......

There is some swearing, so for that reason it could be nsfw unless you wear headphones.

That shit was geekishly hilarious. WTF did he say? "Alright let's do this! LEEEERROOOOOYYYY! Hnrrrggghhhgrhhhhrghhhhh!"

What game is that?

Oh yeah, by "geekishly," I mean I can relate.

And what'd he say at the very end? "At least I ain't chicken!"

At the beginning he says, "Alright chums, let's do this. LEEEEROOOOY JEEEEEEENNNNKIIINSS!"

At the end has says, "At least I've got chicken."

It's been "the thing" on the World of Warcraft forums for about the last month. Pretty hilarious.

Is that the norm? To hold little meeting pow wows before the battle?

I enjoyed Leroy, but the little meeting before cracked me up a bit. Just so calm and coordinated.... calculating the percentage of survival and such.

That's not really the norm in WoW unless you're grouped with some jackbag-scum-of-the-server like Leroy.

So many people find that hilarious, I just don't get it. It was funny for me the first time I saw it, then it just got obscenely annoying. He's a WoW phenomenon now, and that saddens me.

can we tell someone does not play a mmorpg.


some of these mobs are no joke any kind of attack or engaging of the monsters without a well planned organized attack will result in a swift death of even the largest raid force.


let leeeeroyyy jeeeeennnnkins pull some shit like that on my guild on everquest on the ps2 and we would roll to his house and beat his ass to a pulp.

That's only funny if you're at that point in the game, and that actually happens. It did happen a day ago. We had a little warlock in our party who didn't speak english, so he didn't understand "Stay put!" so instead he ran around and disturbed all the dragons and brought them onto the party. Luckily, we survived.. it was pretty fun... but we kicked him out of the party for it.

I was the first to call "Oh my god, we're about to get Leeroy'd" - it got a few laughs.

Nope.

I try, I really do, but every MMORPG I've tried just bores the dog snot out of me.

It's not that I don't enjoy a good RPG, I do. And it's not that I don't enjoy the MMO part, because I do. It's just something about the combination of the two that puts me to sleep.

I just thought it was funny how calm the guy was, he almost sounded bored.

"And then we're going to do this....followed by this....Does everybody have what they need?" /Ben Stein voice.

The only emotion I heard was when they were cursing poor Leroy, who seemed to be having a helluva time playing and eating his chicken.

Both my SO and I play warcraft, and we loved it, if only because we got so used to behavior like that on City of Heroes. We had a controller (low hp, low dam) who was a lord in our Supergroup (guild) who just loved running in first, then blamed the defender (healer, me) for not keeping his stupid ass alive.

God I hated Phyrell.

Not playing the game, this won't be as funny to you, but all the planning they're doing is wrong in every way. It's a spoof on the planning that people do before boss fights or major encounters. Every strategy they talk about will have exactly the opposite effect that they want it to have. Intimidating shout, for example, attracts mobs to you instead of scattering them. The percentage of survival is just for spoof/humor value. No one actually does that.

As Montana said, however, planning is essential for any boss battle from a named mob in Darkshore (Den Mother, cough cough) to Ragnaros. Running up to one and just hoping that things will work out is pretty much guaranteed death, even for the most well-equipped raid group. These encounters are designed to be challenging, and, while many of them can be made more routine with good planning and coordination, you have to set that up beforehand so that people know what they're doing.

HAHA, that was hilarious!

I love the percentage being figured out "32.33, repeating of course."

I've never played the game, but I gathered that it was an attempt at satire.. Very nice!

EDIT: HAHA, I just noticed he was AFK prior to charging to battle.

It was funny.....the first time. Obviously, it was staged and or choreographed. A Pally is really going to forgo his Plate Armor for Cloth? Not likely. And as it was stated above, the smartest thing would have been let him die a solitary death. The voice chat and the calculating of risk are theatrical devices meant to convey the "humor." Going on a UBRS raid now means enduring endless "jokes" or references to Leeroy Jenkins. I just wish it would go away. /bitterness off

No, the reason for the video/plan is that Leeroy wanted a pair of Devout Shoulders (a priest cloth armor set). I know quite a few Priests that would be highly upset if a Paladin got them because they never, ever drop. Ever!

I disagree. Players like that exist in EVERY game. Granted, there are several things that are particular to WoW, but idiotic teammates are eternal and almost all gaming groups have that one guy who borders on Leeroy behavior. A bunch of us are playing Guild Wars now and the same stuff happens.

I do like how Leeroy is now an urban dictionary entry.

Quote:
1. Leeroy
n.
1: One who does not grasp the concept of caution.
2: One whose success is based purely off relentless aggression and pure luck.
3: One who likes chicken.
4: One whose battle cry consists of their own name.

v.
1: To destroy all hopes of success.
2: To rush headlong into danger without regard to consequences.
3: To satisfy one's own desires at the expense of all around oneself.
- I can't believe he just tried to headbutt that dragon. What a Leeroy.

- We were doing great until that idiot totally Leeroyed us.

- The party was really boring until Bob pulled a Leeroy.

But what people have to realize is that these are games, and that some gamers don't share that eternal seriousness most people have while gaming.
Oh well. At LANs me and my friends fuck around all the time. If someone would try to come to our house and tell us to stick to the objectives and plan our moves we'd "roll to his house and beat his ass". Because we know when to be serious and when not to be, I guess.
Anyway, maybe thats the difference between RPGamers and other gamers. I dunno.

Yeah for those who aren't familiar with these types of games it was an attempt at satire.

They weren't serious. That's why it's funny. The video was originally posted by the guildeader of 'pals for life' asking for help with strategy in that room, because they couldn't beat it.

See, I thought that too. The original poster on the blizzard boards later edited his post and stated that he said "At least I've got chicken" which is what I repeated here. I'm inclined to agree that he's saying "At least I ain't chicken" too, since that does make more sense. Consider me a parrot who might be wrong.
