Monday 30th March. Warhammer Online. And an outbreak of brow rage has broken out among players.
A Warhammer dwarf involved in the riots.
Various disgruntled parties are fed up with sub-standard character customisation options in their MMOs, the final tipping point apparently being eyebrow colours which do not change to match hair colour in Mythic’s seminal game of hammers and war, thus limiting any sensible face/hairstyle options for the fashion concious.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer of England today.
The problem – dubbed the Darling Effect after the current Chancellor of the Exchequer – has been felt most strongly by a proportion of the Warhammer Online player population that can be best described as ‘me’. As such there will be a demonstration march on the various capital cities of the game by my dwarven Slayer, who is absolutely livid that he is forced to keep his eyebrows dark brown when every other hair on his body is dyed orange. Yes, every hair.
More details on the Darling Riots as we get them.
