    What a disappointment! What a disappointment I haven`t seen most of the videos before! (Actually, I`ve seen only the top ones)
    I feel a little sorry about `Leeroy Jeeeenkins!!!` but at least it`s still funny. Too bad German kid wasn`t faked for fun. Damn journalists! >-(

    It doesn`t matter if Leeroy is fake or not, the timing was perfect, WoW has millions of players so the fanboy side will have tons of people to watch it. I played WoW for 2 years and I know the whole percentages thing was BS but it still funny to watch. Raid wipes cost tons of gold to fix and people get PISSED in a raid wipe so a lot of people understand his guild`s anger. And let us all remember one thing, fake or real, least he got chicken.

    I`m glad to see that the only one I`ve ever heard of was the Angry German Kid.

    I could tell in about a minute in that the Rednecks v Yuppies one was fake, going on the assumption that they were supposed to be Americans. Rednecks don`t drive foreign-made vehicles. And the guys in the video have Canadian accents, eh.

    all of them are actually real. i was there/ i knew someone who was there for EVERY SINGLE ONE of those videos. Just kidding, i`m just depressed and angry at realising Angry German Kid`s fake. i`m very tempted to start smashing up my keyboard and start screaming gibberish...

    As most have said, pity Leeroy Jenkins was faked but I can still blot that out and watch and enjoy it. Especially since I`ve played in gaming clans with people just like it.

    A lot of writing.. I had only seen the first and second videos before and already had a feeling they were staged.
