"Who's the more foolish: The fool, or the fool who follows him?" If it was me in that group I wouldn't run in after him--THAT is stupid as hell. Dude wants to get himself killed, fine, but that's no reason for the other 11 or so people to do the same.--Illidan Rocks 21:18, 14 Nov 2005 (EST)

I heard the sound was real, and PALS FOR LIFE made a video for it later, though I doubt even the sound is real. I mean, who records the PLANNING stage of a room and who the hell calculates a survival rate percentage? --Kakwakas 18:52, 21 Jan 2006 (EST)

I swear he says "At least I ain't chicken" at the end, and it just sounds like "have". As amusing as asserting one's superiority over one's fellow guildmates due to possession of poultry is, it doesn't really make sense in context. --Mikaka 05:39, 8 December 2006 (EST)

Silly templateEdit

Why adding the silly template? This article doesn't include any nonsense... it's all very verifiable. I'd like to call for it to be removed. Anyone agree? IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPʘLLʘ(ZEUS) 08:02, 26 December 2006 (EST)

I agree, but I guess it's got that template because it's funny like Kralnor, Alamo, and Exe yet it's still verifiable. Grey area? ...put him under lore characters ( kek )? I can guarantee that when another book is published someday that he, Kralnor, and Alamo will all be lore characters. --Super Bhaal 22:46, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
I foward that motion. Why don't you put it to vote? While the video itself is humourous, the article merely documents something of Wow culture. BobNamataki (talk) 14:48, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

StagedEdit

If you're going to write a wiki page, please do at least minimal research. Took out a bit of redundant and stupid shit, namely the whole "it was staged" thing. Regardless that Leeroy was interviewed, there's no reason to doubt the authenticity of the video, it was posted because the guild wanted help with the rookery. The last line is "at least I have chicken", he mentions that he was afk in the interview because he was in fact cooking chicken. --Swich 22:36, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Do you always calculate accurate probability rates when you fight a boss with your guild? Besides, why'd want someone but Leeroy to try and break all the eggs open? I've reinstated the part. And by the way, sorry for saying "please leave a reason". Somehow I missed your writing on this page.IconSmall BloodElf2 MaleAPΘLLΘ(ZEUS) 07:27, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Trying to restart the whole "it's not fake, honest!" thing isn't even vaguely funny. Kirkburn talk contr 07:31, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
I think it was staged because no one in their right mind with that kind of armor could possibly do something that stupid (albeit funny). Would his name come from the sopposed "miracle healer" named LeRoy Jenkins? Or maybe the Jazz musician Leroy Jenkins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leroy_Jenkins
TBH, it seems legit to me. Besides, there's a counteraction to all of those bulletpoints. First, the recorder probably knew a lot of people would be killed, explaining the Wipe Time thing. Second, Leeroy probably is a healing paladin. Third, some people, even if they had good armor, might want to know what their chance of living is. Fourth, some people just can't think of good plans (trust me, I know a guy like that), not to mention the fact that they probably over-estimated their own abilities because of their armor and such. And finally, the recorder had an obvious reason for running over the eggs: He wanted to get the hell away from the dragons that were already chasing him. Zeta 00:21, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

City of Villains Edit

It should be noted that city of villains also has a reference to Leeroy with a NPC named Jenkins

Citations Needed Edit

I have put a request for citations needed on the introduction, where there is currently a hyperlink that is supporting the "faithful re-enactment" claim. However, the article makes absolutely no mention of such a claim, and does not even discuss Leeroy with his guild beyond a single paragraph in which they describe the phenomenon as annoying. The PCGamer UK article that the general theory is based on would be a good point to start with, but the thesis of the video being staged is entirely the theory of the author, and not that of the guild itself. The claims that the guild members themselves said the video were staged need to be reviewed further, however I do not reccomend removing any analysis of the video itself, as all of it is valid without proper backing for the leading statements.
