Roadmap to Cataclysm zone overhauls {WoW}

Nov 5th 2009 9:42PM My guess is that the Thousand Needles instances are actually just new entrances to the Razorfen instances, now that the Southern Barrens has been transformed.

Improving the character selection screen {WoW}

Oct 3rd 2009 7:02PM I know this is "sort of" coming with the upgraded, integrated Battle.net, but I would still love to see who from my friends lists are on when I select a character. It is so annoying to sit through all the loads and everything just to find that none of your friends are actually on.

If you're like me, you have friends on multiple servers and on both Alliance and Horde. I really can't wait on the integrated Battle.net.. but I still want this now anyways. =P

Breakfast Topic: Are private servers really that bad? {WoW}

Dec 8th 2008 12:20PM QUOTE: "ome might contend that there is an innate right to privacy in the fact that after we've purchased the game (and its associated data), Blizzard has no right to tell us what to do with it or to find out how we're using it. I'm not a lawyer, but some are, and there's an interesting debate to be had here."

This is not actually true, and reading the EULA will show you that you do NOT own the data or the game, but that you are LICENSING the software and content for use within the guidelines that the owners (Blizzard) set forth. [Note: EULA is End User Licensing Agreement, and it is what you have to agree to upon installation of the game, expansions, and all patches.]

This is Intellectual Property Law 101 - Blizzard makes the game and contents and licenses it to you, and charges you not just for the right to play the game on their servers, but also for the creation of new content. There is ZERO legal protection for those who run or play on private servers.
