Blizzard needs a consultant to develop a more sound change management procedure. Part of this process should include peer code reviews, sql reviews, comprehensive test plans (including regression testing), and test result approval...you know... like any other company that follows a software development life cycle would do.

OMG! I bet they never ever ever thought of that! Let's call them up and let them know they are doing it wrong.

Because with utmost certainty they have nothing like this already. I mean seriously, it's really only Morhaime and Kaplan doing this in their spare time in their mom's attic. Imagine what they could do with some venture capital!

Seriously. WoW's code base has to be absolutely enormous; bugs are going to pop up especially since Blizzard is under so much pressure to get stuff in production asap so that the realms won't be down too long. Stuff like this is going to happen.

LOL. Yes I'm sure that blizzard, one of the worlds leading software companies, just gold masters code willy nilly....Shit happens man. The best QA practices in the world aren't gonna keep things 100% all the time in such a dynamic environment. They do pretty well considering.
