Jul 12th 2009 8:13PM What nobody seems to realise is if there were an even distribution of the populations of all servers, just over half the players would be speaking an Asiatic language. A further quarter would be speaking a non-English european language.
Only a quarter of WoW players herald from a country where their first language is English. While you're going to have a better chance of finding people with a few languages under their belt from the European servers, it's not going to make much of a dent in that number.
Language is a huge pain in the ass when it comes to interacting with other people online. I defy you to read trade chat or LFG when 20 different people are having simultaneous arguments in different languages.
Server group partitioning based on geography is a good thing.
Jul 3rd 2009 6:56PM The guy says at the start of the video that the game is running on his home machine. He's basically invented VNC.
The potential of games designed to support streaming output are intruiging, but there aren't any games out today that feature these abilities.
Jul 3rd 2009 1:13AM I have a feeling that the next expansion will be announced during Blizzcon as being a mid-2010 release. WoW has been around long enough and has an established enough playerbase that Blizzard will be looking to release things like SCII and D3 for Christmas.

Jun 23rd 2009 7:38PM There are other World of Warcraft icon packs with actual effort put in that are more notable than these awful cropped screenshots. Example: http://www.grovestreetmedia.com/images/icons/icon_set_warcraft.jpg
May 21st 2009 10:13AM C'mon. Ion grids are not strong enough to make a cooling breeze. The big bastard ion drive on our latest space probes puts out about as much force as a sheet of paper weighs and that thing is the size of a car seat.
