Drama, as applied to World of Warcraft most commonly refers to
- "an episode that is turbulent or highly emotional"
that is, interpersonal conflict. In this case, drama most commonly refers to disputes between players, rather than between characters.
Common types Edit
- Guild drama - where some portion of a guild disagrees with current policies or behaviors in some regard. This can lead to new guild policies, an exodus of players, or in some cases both.
- Raid drama - as with guild drama, but contention specifically within a raid.
- Loot drama - whether in a 5-man group or raid, disagreement over the division of loot.
- Trade chat drama - as a channel with a large audience, some people troll for responses from the audience simply to get a reaction or to vent their frustrations.
It is rare but not unknown for dramas in the form of plays to be performed by groups of players.
