Patch 4.3 PTR: Dragon Soul raid now available for testing {WoW}

Oct 15th 2011 5:36AM Who knows maybe they'll get character copying working in the EU before the PTR closes... maybe.

WoW Insider Live Stream: Hour of Twilight {WoW}

Oct 6th 2011 4:33AM "The patch 4.3 PTR is really rolling along now!" - Unless you're in Europe where character copy remains broken.

If you're not following WoW Insider on our social media outlets, Deathwing will do bad things to your raid {WoW}

Aug 16th 2011 5:14AM Why should I follow twitter / facebook / yet another stream when I have the RSS feed?

Battle.net authenticator process updated with smarter log-in detection {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 11:42AM Testing here was on a single network with a common public IP, two windows boxes with different hardware specs and origin. Once we had logged on via one machine, the other did not require the authenticator.

Strongly implying that this is purely IP based.

As for the "Also, Why would you give the morons your password?" comment, I have not shared my password, however after 16 years in the industry I can see so many holes to this "security optimisation" it's unreal. Focus on the underlying message rather than trying to shoot the messenger.

Battle.net authenticator process updated with smarter log-in detection {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 8:35AM Testing here is strongly indicating that the only thing being checked is the originating IP, not anything which combines IP with machine specific information. So great if you're on a NAT network (though choice or not) and have some morons on the same network who like griefing "for the lulz".

A drop in security, to save bashing in a few numbers.

WoW Rookie: Learning how to tank {WoW}

Mar 4th 2011 3:31AM There is no tank shortage. There is a shortage of tanks willing to deal with LFD.

Discuss.

Breakfast Topic: What does your class choice say about you? {WoW}

Oct 13th 2010 8:30AM My class says very little.

My preferred role (Tank), says a fair bit. Utter control freak.

Breakfast Topic: Real ID or Real bad IDea? {WoW}

Jul 7th 2010 8:33AM "My immediate thoughts upon reading that is that she is quoting Dutch laws, and Blizzard is an American company, and thus not subject to Dutch laws. However, there could be equivalent laws in America."

Blizz is an American company operating in Europe and is very very much subject to the laws of those countries when operating in them. Don't think so? Have a chat with Microsoft.

Blizzard posts the newest World of Warcraft Battle Plan {WoW}

Apr 14th 2010 4:45AM @Kriegle - "You're right Koren, we were all wrong. You're awesome. "

The point is that it is possible to keep a platform running 24x7 without the outage problems seen by Blizz, even more so where there is the ability to have planned scheduled outage time (not a luxury I have). Blizz do a great job keeping their machines up, but to claim (as many do) that 90% uptime is anything special is a joke.

Blizzard posts the newest World of Warcraft Battle Plan {WoW}

Apr 13th 2010 3:33AM "Let me know when you can keep enough servers alive to hold 11 million users information with a 90% uptime. "

How does 60 million subscribers and a required uptime of 99.999% grab you? Sound like fun? Come do my job then.
