This is what happens when a 25-man Alliance raiding party sacks their own capital city - with rock. They may not have started the fire, but they have created one of the most beautiful videos I've ever seen.

The Dark Endeavor guild on the Durotan World of Warcraft server has me seriously considering handing Blizzard money so I can change servers and sides, just on the off chance that I might witness a stunning spectacle like this as it happens. I can only imagine the amount of coordination this must have taken, between getting everyone in their places, timing the text to the song, and making sure the camera angles were perfect. It's sure to spawn a wave of copycats, but none will be quite as impressive as this performance.

This is one of the reason's I love massively-multiplayer online games as much as I do. It's the people who look at these virtual worlds and see a playground instead of a series of levels. It's inspiring.

I'll just come right out and say it: The Alliance wins.
