Jul 4th 2008 6:34AM Better make that "all three of you": "We haven't announced which betas the BlizzCon or WWI keys will grant access to." means that the key may (but doesn't have to) be for WotLK.
Jul 3rd 2008 8:06AM How you connect to the internet does not affect the security of WoW client's authentication: your password is not sent to the server, so logging your internet communication is not a viable attack vector. The only real factor is the security of your own computer: is it going to send your password to third parties without your knowledge, or are you sure it's secured?
Jul 2nd 2008 7:33PM Technically, any modifier key (shift, ctrl, alt) should work; there is, however, a known issue in 0.8 that prevents that from functioning properly. Fix incoming eventually.
Jul 2nd 2008 7:32PM I conjured up a long-ish Lua script to shoot that video; if you look closely, you might be able to see my keyring button reappearing in one of those scenes. I've updated the thing since then, but it's still in no form to be released - we'll see more about that some time after OPie reaches an actual release state.
May 15th 2008 4:54AM For what it's worth, we have had melee air burst the MT prior to the patch (careless, but happens), and that was not a tragic disaster you make it out to be - Archimonde simply chases the tank, and, assuming your healers are competent and your tank knows what to do with those Tears, it's entirely recoverable (minor positioning run-around aside).
Fear on the tank shouldn't really be an issue either; fear ward prevents it in most situations. Fear on the healers running to adjust position? Bring more shamans.
Feb 16th 2008 8:11PM I believe the right to retain content after deletion is a simple effort to prevent liability if the content isn't immediately removed from the servers themselves (Curse is no doubt mirrored heavily, there's no telling when removed content is actually physically removed);
I believe you're translating "a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such content on Curse Website (or its successors and affiliates)." to "to do whatever they want with your files before you delete them." -- in fact, it appears to be a simple right to display and distribute your content; again, they would be liable if they allowed people to download copyrighted addons without that clause. Note the lack of rights to modify -- the grant is limited to more or less making the files available for download until you remove them.
Feb 16th 2008 7:56PM Eliah: The sentence after the one you quoted reads "The aforementioned license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a User Submission from Curse Website.", which doesn't seem to match your conclusion ("... Curse can continue to distribute files you delete, for any reason, anywhere, at any time. "). Perhaps you were confused by the sentence after that - "You also acknowledge that Curse, Inc. may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of User Submissions that have been removed or deleted." - but even so, that explicitly does NOT grant Curse permission to continue to distribute content that has been removed by the author.
