Dec 13th 2010 3:10PM Raid sizes have not been cut at every expansion, its only happened once, when Burning Crusade came out. Wrath and Cataclysm kept the raid size as it is. Not to mention, even though guild achievements no longer count toward guild leveling, guilds still level and those levels give you nice perks, so people are still encouraged to join a guild instead of playing the game as a solo player all the time.
This past week I've been seeing a steady stream of people asking in trade chat for guilds they can join, all of the solo players are coming out of the woodwork trying to get into guilds now. Obviously the guild leveling system Blizz put in is working as intended, getting people to ditch a solo play style and get into guilds.

"My bank account is less secure than my wow account." That is why you should care. Who says the hacker that gets a keylogger installed through an addon auto-updater isn't also looking for bank account info, or login info for other games, or any other info that he can use to steal something from you? Yeah, your authenticator protects your WoW account from being stolen, but not your bank account from being drained.
Use Firefox w/NoScript
Use an authenticator
Don't use addon auto-updaters
Don't go to sites you found through Google search that are paid for links
Be careful of URL's given to you through chat, tweets, etc. Make sure they actually go to where you think they go

It's a line, a long line, that goes on for hours and hours. This is a bad thing©. end of discussion.
Oct 21st 2010 7:21PM I've been to 2 Blizzcons, and I have always avoided those insane lines by coming in at 7PM, after almost everyone has their tickets, and going straight to the ticket counter to pick mine up. While hordes of people are sweltering in a long line in front of the convention center for hours on end Thursday afternoon, I'm in the bar at the Hilton right next door enjoying a cold beer. ;)
Oct 17th 2010 8:08PM Now *THAT* is what I'm talking about! Impressive.
Oct 5th 2010 7:52PM Going to have to agree with The King, that was god awful. you people who are gushing over that cutscene should be ashamed of yourselves, letting your enthusiasm for the expansion blind you to some of the worst voice acting and machinima ever put forth. Blizzard used to make fantastic cinema and cut scenes for their games, and SC 2 had some really good work done, but it looks like they've abandoned that effort for WoW and instead let their anime crazed pre-teens do the work on these.
Jul 19th 2010 8:01PM @Furlover Look into EVE University, a player run training corp with a couple thousand members, regular classes on all aspects of EVE, an online media library of past recorded classes, and a great Wiki with info and guides on a lot of things.
