I had heard a while back you guys were looking for MMO memes and I know of a good WoW related one. I am not sure if it’s prevalent outside WoW at all.

Original flash+video, I do not know the date of origin for the flash or the original audio. General info: the guild is called Wipeclub and it raided during “vanilla” wow. It had a very funny sounding GM named Dives who yelled at people for sucking during raids a lot, some other videos of his tirades exist.

Apparently it originated early 2006.

Blizzard later made references to the video in achievments for the level 80 version of Onyxia’s Lair (Remade for WoW’s 5th anniversary):

And of course there are ten man versions as well.

I SECOND THIS AS A MEME! I fell in love with this bit YEARS ago, around a month of it appearing. I wake up every morning to… Crushim was feared into WHO THE FUCK WAS THAT?! CRUSHIM WHAT THE FUCK?! The wake up call of champions!

But it needs more dots, more dots now!

Hell yes, if this isn’t a confirmed entry yet, it should be. Definitely a meme. I don’t even play WoW, and I know a lot of other people who can quote this.

I didn’t know about this and it seems awesome in so many ways.
But, there dosen’t seem to be remixes other than the leekspin thing…

Sorry for double post – I submitted it, any help with displaying the Google Trends images and properly linking to the URLs greatly appreciated.

Also the search terms I entered do not appear to be working.

Oh and the third video’s embed won’t work properly.
