I personally love how WoW Insider is actually covering the Alpha information unlike some other sites. But what I find mildly amusing and perplexing is the losing battle from some higher ups (I'm looking at you, Mike) that you guys are somehow "respecting" Blizzard's desire that you not share this information. Explain to me how linking to the wiki, then discussing in explicit detail leaked talents and abilities is NOT sharing? This is starting to look like a flamingWoWinsider post, but like I tried to state earlier, I think it's good. I just don't see why the facade is necessary. I'm not sure why you guys haven't gotten all-access in the past, but you probably aren't going to anymore, so just go with it and stop pretending like you are somehow protecting Blizzard's secrets. Thanks though, I didn't know Shaman changes were up yet! Looks awesome.

You're right. The information's out there, anyone reading this is going to know where to find it. The only way to stop it is to stop the alpha testers from divulging the information.I like how some people realize this!

@s256Except Alpha Testers aren't leaking the information. You should understand that non-alpha testers are getting their hands on the actual alpha client and extracting the text and other information from the packaged files.

Kyrra, how would the non-testers get their hands on the alpha client except via someone who's involved in the alpha test? Someone is still giving out information they're not supposed to give out, whether it's individual details, the client code, or the client executable.

Someone released the client onto bittorrent. From there it just spread like wildfire.It only takes 1 person.
