WoW mod for accountants to discuss business and get work done.
The world of MMOs are extremely captivating and can be a
way to bring people together. Unlike a boring teleconference
in a game you and the other players minds are activated in
similar wavelengths in accomplishing your goal together. This
unity of mind can be achieved even if
you don't speak the same
language, I've played many a game with a Japanese player and
we've accomplished countless hours of language-less
So like a kale smoothie, where you take a normally disgusting
plant and blend it with tasty bananas and mangos to get rid of
that awful green flavor, The same principle would apply for
accounting. You wrap a disgusting concept like dry paperwork
an interactive online gaming experience.
You and your "party" of accountants teleconferencing from
the globe would use your "swords" and "magic" of accounting
skills and apply them to fight the "enemy" which is the
paperwork. This would be particularly useful for dealing with
people from far away places to interact without the language
In a unique combat system each logistical calculation would be
required to "defeat the enemy", thus providing stimulus to
boring paperwork and resist the temptation to game while at
||Possibly a good idea. What's an MMO?
||WOW:A is, if you come at it from a different angle, an inevitable part of the continued development of the WOW game dynamic, fantasy bollocks tending closer in all but visuals, to the real world that people are trying to escape.

||I like very much the idea of using the MMO platform to accomplish something besides waste tons of time. It is such a cool idea. I hope that soon the premise of using MMOs to battle imaginary monsters is viewed in the same way as using personal computers to keep track of recipes.
||I dunno, seems open to people trying to game the system.
||I agree Bungston. The genuine interconnectivity and mind
activation that goes on in an MMO could be used for something
more productive than playing a game.
||Isn't that what EVE Online is?
