  • Have some pent up aggression that you'd like to take out on the Blizzard team?

    We're looking to test the new hardware, and we're jumping in ourselves to help! A team of Blizzard employees will be jumping into Warsong Gulch from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM PST Friday, March 10 as a hardened Horde group seeking Alliance action on the PvP Contest Realm! If you're looking to fight against Blizzard's crew, there's never been a better chance! Get leveling tonight -- we'll be waiting in the Gulch!

    *sigh* If only I weren't already horde.

  • IGN has the new Journal of Kytel Greymane.

    Last week Kytel worked hard to prepare for the expedition. Since the new Shard had never been explored before, he had crafted some protection potions to bring along. Now, he finds himself on board the Shardship 'The Shadow Moon', tensions growing as the mysterious Carnyx Shard slides into view around a corner of the Deadspell Storm.

  • Boomjack touched on this in his Loading... this morning. I wanted to throw my own two cents in because.. well if you know me, you know I'm extremely opinionated. The problem?

    The Chinese userbase reports widespread delays of over an hour when logging into the game and getting a server list, and the last straw seems to have been complete server outages that disrupted the endgame of a large-scale raid involving nearly 1,000 players.

    Ok now, let's talk about how this would affect world relations, game economy and my general state of panic.

    1. Does Blizzard realize that it's not a good thing to piss China off? Can we say one billion angry people with nuclear weapons? C'mon, we're already on spongey turf with them as it is.

    2. Dare I say it? Gold farming cut in half? The economy is in dire straights!

    In all seriousness, Blizzard does have new hardware in the works so we need to be patient. On the other hand, I can understand their angst. I sat in a mere five minute queue last night trying to get into Sen'jin and nearly lost my mind. What is going on in the minds of the Blizzard execs? Who can say? We can't get anyone to comment on the issues.

    Check out our World of Warcraft community while you're waiting for the servers to come up.

  • Have you been reading the novels up to this point? Me? Mmm Not so much. However, if you'd rather read about it than play it, the next novel is now available.

    The new Warcraft novel Cycle of Hatred is now available! Cycle of Hatred's story takes place three years after the events of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. The Burning Legion has been defeated, and the 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 starting to crumble. Random attacks against Durotar's holdings suggest that the humans have renewed their aggression towards the orcs. Now Jaina and Thrall must avert disaster before old hatreds are rekindled - and Kalimdor is plunged into another devastating war...

    Check the first chapter out here.

    We literally have the best World of Warcraft site in the Universe.
