LEEEEEEROOOY JEEEENKINS https://t.co/UbwywVRuij— Standard Gaming and Tech (@EStandardGaming) May 12, 2020
A few days ago. What ever, time doesn't matter.
15 years ago, a group of players were planning a strategry in the Upper Black Rock Spire against an opposing group. Maybe the plan was good, maybe it wasn't, but it was all scuppered when one fellow, the titular Leeroy Jenkins, had his own idea to rush in, which got his guildmates killed.
This meme has been referenced all over the internet, and even in official Blizzard materials.
12 years after the video was first uploaded, Ben Schulz – who made and played the Leeroy Jenkins character – came clean and confirmed it was a staged event.
But whatever, it's still funny.
Look I hardly know about WoW, but I do know about memes.
