Unhappy Scared of my brother? - September 20th 2011, 06:33 PM

Hello everyone!

I've got a problem, me and my other two brothers play WoW ( World of Warcraft) together. My younger of my two older brothers pays for our accounts.
But as of today he stopped paying for our oldest brothers account. The reason he stopped was because they had an agreement that the oldest would play often, and in return his account would get paid for, but he stopped playing as much. Our oldest brother isn't a friendly person....okay no lying to quite frank he's an A--hole. And when I break the news that he has got to pay for his own account I have no clue how he's going to react.

Can someone give me some advice?

Extra info. I'm 15, The middle brother( the one who pays for the accounts) is 23 and the oldest is 29 (almost 30)

Me and the middle brother are very close and started playing wow together 3 years ago, I legally can't get a job so he pays for me. Our oldest brother is a 'free loader' He moved home 4 months ago because he is divorcing his wife, he has a job but he only works 10-15 hours a week. I don't know how he will react to us refusing to pay for his account , but he needs to think; the middle brother gave him a $1400 alienware computer set for gaming for one thing: to play wow with us.


I may not respond too much cause our oldest brother hangs out in my room and I don't need him seeing/ snooping on/in my computer.

Frankly, though, I think that WoW issues are the least of everyone's problems. he;s going thru some hard times, you don't have a good relationship to begin with, and there doesn't seem to be any limits or expectations on him. Even with all the issues he's facing, that's not at all good. Structure=resolution, of the little things (like WoW) and the bigger ones. Where are your parents in all this, and why aren't they taking a more active role?

I'd give them the heads up here so they can be supportive and intervene if necessary. But, I'd stay out of it.


PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.
