This just showed up at my house by courier this afternoon, and while I knew Blizzard had said they were going to give long time players a Thank You gift, I never expected something like this!

Blizzard has shown their appreciation to all the 10 year players by giving them a miniature version of the mounted Orc statue that stands outside of their office.

It stands roughly 9" tall and is extremely heavy and solid.  The Orc slides onto the base using a peg and rests very sturdily on it, both hands have magnetized pegs to hold them in while together, and make it easy to disassemble for packing and shipping. 

I know that Blizzard has made a lot of money off of all of us 10 year subscribers, as after all 10 years of subscription fees come to roughly $1800, which is a lot of cash per player for a game.  However, there are very few companies out there that would share any of their profit with their customers for no reason. 

This was, in my opinion, a very classy act on Blizzard's part, no matter how much money they have made off of us.

Thank you Blizzard!
