Invade Stormwind? You and What Arm-- oh, That One

When you can't convince 35 other people of your master plan to attack two Alliance capital cities, you really only have one alternative: Do it yourself. "Bradster" does. He owns that rig above -- 11 computers that run 36 World of WarCraft accounts simultaneously. His infrastructure costs (to say nothing of his utility bill) weren't itemized, but he unashamedly admits he pays $US5,711 per year in subscription fees to keep together his one-man raiding party (family photo of that on the jump).

Better yet? He's going to spend another $US1,500 on 36 copies of Wrath of the Lich King so his army of level 80 Shamans can start pounding down Stormwind and Ironforge on day one.

Bradster is a WoW multiboxer. This isn't a lifestyle I'm all that familiar with, but there are forums and discussion boards devoted to helping players control multiple characters in WoW. It sounds like he has utilities that allow him to start up all of his copies simultaneously, and use his mouse to control eight of these monitors (which look like they have at at least 3 copies running) at once.

Oh and here's a comment beneath his post on a multiboxing forum:

"I'm horrified and greatly impressed at the same time. And I thought I took my hooby [sic]too seriously at $1680/year in subscription fees."

Psssht. $US1,680? Night elf, please. So, now I really want to know what Bradster does for a living, a) so he can afford all this shit and b) so he can have the time to play it.

Here's the class picture.

    Lol that guy would give that all up in a second if he just got laid one time

    Dear bloggers
    Just because a blog is an informal news medium doesn't mean you can get by without checking your facts. This multiboxer is actually Prepared and NOT Bradster. Bradster merely posted the article on the dual-boxing.com site.
    All tho props on not just copy and pasting the text from the post like the retard Dan at Ripten.

    yeh hahaha
