WoW GM Wins Oscar

When the WoW Gold Pig dudes aren't raiding or doing ollies in the backyard, they're most likely watching a movie. Pigs love them movies.

Favorite movie: Babe.

The silver screen is a source of inspiration (and good popcorn) for young impressionable folks like us. Die Hard's John McClane is one of our role models. So you could just imagine how the prestigious Academy Awards handed an Oscar to someone close to our heart.

Enter Steve Preeg - visual effects artist for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and I, Robot. He won the Oscar for his work on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Now you're probably thinking - who's he?

Well, aside from being an Oscar-winning Hollywood hotshot, he's also a well-played guild leader in World of Warcraft who has lead his guild on almost everything from Illidan up to Sartharion. He's got a level 80 Combat Rogue and max skills on both professions.

Awesome. Now you know that WoW players aren't just good in-game - they're also meant for greatness in real life.
