I'd like to see his computer room (and maybe his power bill) if he's got 11 set up at once.
Hobbies are unusual only to the ones that don't practice them, and unless those hobbies are illegal, who are we to decide what is an appropriate hobby or not? Hopefully he can afford this and eat, but whatever the case it's his deal not ours. In agreement with Rhapsody, to box an entire raid on your own is about as hardcore and fanatic as gaming gets, but not everyone could or would do it. I tried boxing two with a friend's account in EQ to PL his toons.... doable but not really my style. I'm character driven and I'd rather run one good developed toon than a canned army.
I'll be among the first members here to laud MMO's, I am active in three of them but I don't run more than one account in any...there's plenty to do in them without running more than one toon at a time.
With this guy's setup, surely he can have the best of just about everything Azeroth has to offer, but to be there, this is his lifestyle. No judgements here but I'm sure he has little in the way of rl relationships etc., and to each his own.
I've said a hundred time that EverQuest isn't about the destination, it's about the journey...something that I find rings true with MMO's in general. You get all kinds on the servers, just as in real life...and then I'm compelled to challenge the notion when people call online life not as real.
