  • 2500 WoW Accounts Banned
    MMORPGDot.com
    reports that 2500 World of Warcraft accounts have been banned in Europe.

    Continuing their aggressive stand against cheats, hacks, and exploits, Blizzard
    banned 2500 WoW accounts this weekend for being

    "involved in the use of cheats and/or hacks using third-person software
    or were otherwise violating our Terms of Use".

    They also gave credit to some European users affected by a technical bug keeping
    them from connecting to English speaking servers.

  • Something Need Doing?
    Sci-Fi novelist Keith R.A. DeCandido (Star Trek, Andromeda) is bringing a little
    more than upgrades to Warcraft players. He is writing a series of novels devoted
    to the World of Warcraft series. The first book will be called "World of
    Warcraft: Cycle of Hatred." A very fitting title given the books contents:

    The Burning Legion has been defeated, and eastern regions of Kalimdor
    are now shared by two nations: the orcs of Durotar, led by their noble Warchief,
    Thrall; and the humans of Theramore, led by one of the most powerful mages alive
    -- Lady Jaina Proudmoore. But the tentative peace between orcs and humans is
    suddenly crumbling. Random attacks against Durotar's holdings suggest that the
    humans have renewed their aggression toward the orcs. Now Jaina and Thrall must
    avert disaster before old hatreds are rekindled -- and Kalimdor is plunged into
    another devastating war. Jaina's search to uncover the truth behind the attacks
    leads her to a shocking revelation. Her encounter with a legendary, long-lost
    wizard will challenge everything that she believes and illuminate the secret
    history of the world of...

  • Are you a heretic or a believer? Will the Burning Crusade be hot or just luke-warm?
    Those crazy bananas at our World of Warcraft site have posted a great article that takes a look at the upcoming Burning Crusade expansion. How will this expansion affect you, or will it? Find out in, "Thoughts on the Burning Crusade: How Will It Affect You?".

    " But as the future of the Game shifts before us, I realised that by raising the level cap an extra 10 levels, it will change the face of the (medium-end) game as we have come to know it. It will seriously affect many in-game aspects that few have considered. "

  • What do you mean slow fall doesn't work in  real life?



    More coverage of the Chinese boy who's impersonation of a hot air
    balloon failed miserably, inciting his parents to sue Blizzard debacle
    is posted at Ferrago.

    "The lawsuit against Blizzard blames the dangerous
    influences of their
    title for the boy's death, and the case is being supported by the vocal
    Zhang Chunliang, an activist who has in the past sought to educate on
    the dangers of internet
    addictions. The suit will be filed soon and Chungliang claims he has
    spoken to over sixty parents, concerned about the impact of online
    addictions on their children. Blizzard have yet to respond to the
    lawsuit, which has yet to be officially filed, but it is likely that
    this will prove a test case for China's perception of online gaming and
    the associated risks. "

    Oh, you want more?
