** A big thing about MMOs and online gaming that Felicia wanted to highlight was that you can, quite easily and regularly, befriend people that you usually would not have befriended, due to no common ground outside of the game. So while a lot of people look for guilds that are like-minded and similar, it's not uncommon, particularly for people that get picked up by random guilds, to befriend people that are completely different and even downright weird, even outside the game.

** I figured it's just a very popular game (à la WorldOfWarcraft), so with them living in a major city there's bound to be a few dozen locals on their server.

* Exactly how much personal interaction do people have in this game? I've never played WoW but if some guy is starting to get obsessed with you, and another is a teenager who's planning on destroying your guild (Bladezz, the main protagonist of Season 1), wouldn't you have figured it out before you all met in real life and maybe decided to quit that particular guild to play with more like-minded personalities?

* Why does only Zaboo have the ability to harvest Gold? Why can't Vork do it himself?

* Is Codex actually brodcasting to anyone or is it a talking head segment plot device that's not to be taken seriously in-universe (like Modern Family?)? I imagine if she had people watching her stream and stuff they might give her advice as well as help when things get really dire. She might not, say, need to call her therapist.

** The Guildies did object but they were overruled by the manager. I don't think the manager was painted as being particularly competent. He was clearly pretty gullible if he believed Vork assaulted Venom.

** Depending on how loyal he was to the deal, he could not continue to date her out of spite, since if they lost they had to stop messing with the KOG in game and out. So he must have really liked the mom and wanted to continue seeing her not to mess with Bladezz. I also believe the "in your dreams" was just about his statement of being equals.



** The curious thing is that the annotated version of season 4 says that 'for years people have wondered how the Guildies pay their rent. It felt good to justify at least one of them' in reference to Codex's job at Cheesybeards. But Codex was the ''only'' one who has no obvious means of support. Bladezz lives with his parents; Tink's at college, no doubt living off some combination of student loans, and (rich) parental support; Wiggly has a job and supports Clara; Vork has all kinds of money-saving/scrounging schemes, and sells in-game gold; Zaboo pays rent to Vork in in-game gold.

** Since it was based on Felicia's own experience. She said that during her WOW addiction, she was of course working as an actress, but getting very few jobs, so she played for LONG periods in between, but the money she did make from jobs supported her during downtime, though not well, enough to pay the modest rent, food, etc. Cyd works as a violinist, also with gigs few and far between but likely paying enough to support her in between, though not for extravagances or unexpected things like a fried computer.

* If Mr. Wiggly knows next to nothing about video games (the last game he played was Pong), why does he have a tattoo of an 8-bit anchor on his right bicep? Did Bladezz convince him to get it? If so, why wasn't this sudden change acknowledged by Clara?
* Where does the Gamestop guy get off sending ''everyone'' to the back of the line? As far as he knows, Vork was the only one who did anything wrong. And why didn't any of the Guildies object to being punished for something they really had nothing to do with?

Clara?.
** Yes, Bladezz was taking Mr. Wiggly under his wing in season 6, and his tastes rubbed off on Wiggly.

** At least where I live, when WoW launched, people camped out to be sure to get their preorders. The store had I think 1000 copies, and went through them to fill parts of the preorders, and then it was a couple of days before they got any more. It's not unreasonable The Game could have had a similar distribution disaster.
