World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Launch

Today is the launch of the new Cataclysm expansion for World of Warcraft, Blizzard's all-conquering MMORPG. There were midnight launch events in the wee hours, and if you missed out, you can relive the magic by opening all your windows and watching the video on GameSpot or the video on OC Register. There's a report on the launch in the U.K. on MCV. There are First Impressions on PC Gamer where they also have 15 reasons to play Cataclysm. There's also this trailer (NSFW) with a clever music video about the add-on's cataclysmic events, with apologies to R.E.M. Thanks Ant.

My GOD! I just had a brainwave.

I'll start a buisness. Everyone I hire, I will title as Level 1 Peons/Widgeteers/Treeslayers/Code Warriors/etc.

For every set amount of time they clock, call it a full Quarter or whatever, they gain a level. When they complete a project, they get loot - an upgraded keyboard, a better pen, maybe a chair that doesn't make their legs go numb or their back hurt so much. (Or maybe I just throw some glittery crap on it, add some spikes or LEDs or something.)

Oh, and "higher level" workers get a better dress code. Noobs have to wear coveralls. Top level people get tuxedos with built-in special effects.

People who take sick days or vacation get a negative modifier on their earned "XP".

I mean, it's just a rough idea - I'll have to hammer out the details...maybe even pay them...
