The Middle East is a region where Africa, Asia, and Europe meet each other in an awkward sort of way. The Arabian peninsula attempts to compensate for this awkwardness by being the largest and fattest recognized peninsula in the world, but the three continents on every side sort of squeeze in on it. The "Slaughter the Infidels" PvP game mode is very popular here, perhaps due to people's blood boiling in the too damn hot climate.
