Not Real, 21 December 2010
Author: Skylerz from Philadelphia, PA United States

Although I played World of Warcraft, I never raided or had a high end character. My part was heavily scripted and improvised based on the direction of the producers.

It was just something to do to add to my resume. They were not supposed to use my real name either but the producers were unethical in their approach for me to do the movie.

They actually would buy me alcohol so i would get a buzz on and open up more because I thought the movie doc was stupid. So please don't send me anymore email telling me your hardship stories. I'm not the person you think I am.

They also lied about where i lived, who I lived with, what I did for work. It's not a real look into a gaming addicts life. Unless perhaps the losers from Indiana were for real but that I don't know. From what i can tell they were actually real life friends of the producers who were also playing a role.
