And why do I care about this news?? Unless this merger is going to make them pump out their products quicker, how does this effect me?

Well its certainly not going to make you any less of an ass.

You're seeing it because it's WoW related. Geeze. Some people will complain about anything.

Oh be quiet. You don't care about this news but you care enough about how you don't care to comment? Seriously, man, calm down. It is indeed potentially important. Of course, if the big wigs above Morhaime (ugh, spelling?) have half a brain, they will just leave Blizz to do what they do best--crank out some of the best video games in the world at their own, quality-based pace. Anything else and you lose the appeal Blizzard has built up and warranted over many, many, dedicated years. I mean, what other company has stuck with basically 3 titles for over a decade and only 3? And even with WoW shooting their profits through the roof, they are obviously still dedicated, with both SCII and D3 well underway--all while working on upgrading the most popular online game in the world. So, yea, I like Blizzard. But to continue responding to this obnoxious poster--WoW Insider is an opinion and NEWS blog regarding World of Warcraft. Thus all Blizzard news is fair game and exactly what I expect from such a blog. If they were not reporting on this I would be disappointed--not because it is likely to directly impact ur phat lewtz but because it is newsworthy and related. God I hate all the "why does WoW Insider make crappy posts" comments cropping up all over the place these days. I suppose dissenters always are more emotional and willing to comment, but I chuckle a little bit inside when I see people who apparently hate this site avidly reading it and commenting. What's better are those comments from people who have canceled their WoW accounts because "OMG Blizz sux and teh game is for teh scrubs and nubs now. I want my epeen back". When those people read a blog about a game they supposedly hate AND care enough to comment, well, that's just too bad. I read and comment because I love it. Yes, that does make me morally superior. And yes, that previous sentence does make me arrogant. Yay Blizz! Let's hope that this merger does indeed do absolutely nothing!
