Oi, soy "Elfa de la Noche Druida". I'd say the EU version has some language bleeds in it. ^-^

@ kymaliFFS, I thought we'd put this one to bed long ago. OK, here goes...It's an American blog, by American writers, about an American game, by an American company.And surprisingly, at no point in that chain did anyone or anything "choose" to be American for the sole purpose of offending or excluding you.If you expect every single one of these people with real lives and families to always take the time to go the extra mile and find out whether there's a European equivalent and detail that for you in every single article they post, I can tell you that it wouldn't often occur to me, it's not going to often occur to them, and such expectations will leave you horribly (and consistently) disappointed.Rai asked a simple question. No harm in that. But the tone of your "how hard would it be", and the implication that they're somehow slacking by not accommodating you, is obnoxious. And if we the readers are sick of it, I'd guess the writers probably are to.

@Grovinofdarkhour: An american blog, with a very sizeable amount of european readers that generate a lot of advertising money. If you were to target WoWinsider to only American players on US realms playing from America, you'd target about 20% of the total WoW playerbase. Even counting that the other regions with their own languages (la, tw, ko, sp, fr, ge, ru) have their own newssites and don't come here, that still leaves a fairly large portion that DO play World of Warcraft in English and DO read WoW news in English and thus come to WoWinsider, which claims to be a site for World of Warcraft news. Sometimes, the news even comes from the EU official WoW site. So considering all that, would it really hurt to take the extra ten seconds to add one more link?

"It's an American blog, by American writers, about an American game, by an American company."Totally ignorant comment. There are far more non-Americans playing this game than Americans. And in case you hadn't noticed, this blog (with locally targetted advertisments that they make money from), is available outside of America too.
