What other virtual worlds did you research besides SL or WoW? I would recommend checking out if you are looking at other sites.


There is a difference between real world and virtual world physics in that virtual world physics change all the time. In WoW they update the game constantly with patches which changes how the game is played. An example would be a recent patch changing abilities of my class that normally I use all the time, which means all the strategies I used before are now null and void and have to be reinvented for me to remain competitive. This happens a lot in the virtual world, enough so that whole websites are full of debates on how new strategies will work or the most efficient way to accomplish diffrent goals.
