World of Warcraft + Torchlight News

  • Four new realms are open for the masses. The good news is that there are four. The bad news is that they're mostly PVP.

    We are proud to announce that on Thursday March 23 at 12:00 PM PST we will be launching four brand new realms! These realms will be available for all players to start fresh adventures in Azeroth!

    * Turalyon - PvE
    * Haomarush - PvP
    * Scilla - PvP
    * Ysondre - PvP

    You better start thinking of a good name for your new character before someone else reserves it first!

    According to the Inquirer, employers or in this case one employer, Yahoo is looking to hire World of Warcraft players.

    "According to him the reason he was hired was he played WoW. Apparently if you are an effective World of Warcraft guild master you get a crash course in leadership."

    We're looking to test the new hardware, and we're jumping in ourselves to help!

  • 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.
