I don't really think it's an issue of antagonising Blizzard, or even waiting for a reply from them. I just found it strange that you were reporting this story, and not saying you'd probed all sources. Your absence of Blizzard rep is conspicuously absent, which, as your comment states, is understandable - but isn't it normal journalistic practice to say that you'd been in touch, and are awaiting a reply? If you don't do that, then we can't take for granted that you have, no matter how inferred you make it. One extra line of text doesn't delay a story that long. I mean, the whole What, When, Where and "Why" thing, right? Blizzard aren't going to go into a huff if you criticise them, or investigate. You can act as a watchdog just as much as you can act as fans of their games. If Valve can invite L4D boy-cotters into their premises after how vocal they were, I'm sure Blizzard can maintain a relationship with WOW.com, probably the biggest WOW-focused news/feature site out there, even with the strain of having questions thrown at them. @Styvorama: I didn't complain about that. It seems to me you're tarring critics of WOW.com with the same brush - different people can have different issues. It's not just one mighty mass of "meh."
