Miami, FL (PressExposure) March 15, 2012 -- The video game World of Warcraft (WoW) has become home to roughly 10 million gamers in the United States over the past decade. Having one of the most expansive gaming populations in the history of video gaming, World of Warcraft has spawned limitless opportunities for the players who play the game, to profiteer from it in a number of creative ways, some beneficial to the player base; most as nothing but scams.
Nicholas Medina is an avid World of Warcraft gamer, who has been playing the game since the launch of the Alpha version over a decade ago, which is basically the first time when any video game has any form of exposure outside of development; most of which are private and invite only. Playing the game since its birth, Medina has seen all the player profiteering that goes on in the game: Selling gold, power leveling, selling in game items for real money, selling accounts, and the list really never stops. Not only are many of these services illegal according to Blizzards Terms of Agreement, but many of the so called service providers, in many cases disappear once the paying customer has made payment.
To Medina, this was unacceptable, and it led to the birth of his website (WoW Cataclysm Leveling Guides - [http://www.WoWCataclysmLevelingGuidess.com]) - A website where he would pay for and review the so called "exclusive" services that are often advertised by entrepreneurs in the WoW community, in order to expose the scam artists and encourage people to stay away from the illegal services. Medina began spending his money to review these services, so potential victims would not fall prey to scam artists.
Some of the services and reviews offered on the website include:
Reviewing paid services; faring them up to the free alternative.
Reviewing leveling guides; debunking the overhyped and praising the hidden gems.
Blogging about general tips, or information any WoW player would find useful.
Number crunching and doing calculations to help players optimize their in game time.
Not endorsing any of the illegal services, but instead, exposing the ones that are scams.
Reviewing gold farming guides, which ones fulfill their claimed Return of Investment.
The sole goal of creating this website is to help WoW players make informed decisions. Nicholas strives to collect as much information as possible, evaluate it, and publish it for the benefit of the player base.
In providing such information, Medina's one goal is to further create and endorse as much balanced play as possible in the World of Warcraft, so that everybody can play a game the way it was meant to be played: With fun and excitement, and by the rules.
