It’s hard to remember, but there was a time when the name “Leeroy Jenkins” didn’t elicit knowing nods and sage murmurs among every living human on the planet. But it’s true: It was 11 years ago today that an impetuous World Of Warcraft player was caught on camera bellowing his name, storming into battle, and getting himself and his entire team killed in a glorious mélange of chaos brought on by his impulsive action.
