WoW Insider Weekly News Update for Dec. 9, 2011 {WoW}

Dec 9th 2011 4:05PM First kill is first kill IMO, 10 or 25, but you know if it happens on 10 the first 25 man will claim world first as well.

Patch 4.3: Raid Finder loot rules updated {WoW}

Oct 7th 2011 2:07PM I think you misused "roll" and "role"

Breakfast Topic: Did you accomplish your Brewfest goals? {WoW}

Oct 6th 2011 10:08AM I got both mounts on my main, just kodo on my alt.

Love the ram.

Breakfast Topic: Would you play WoW if it had no levels? {WoW}

Oct 4th 2011 8:06AM It's not that I would outright refuse, but I think without having to work your way to a level cap, there would be a LOT more noobage in raids/BGs and such, and I would have quit out of frustration.

Patch 4.3 PTR: New interface for reforging {WoW}

Oct 3rd 2011 8:53PM god i hope so

Breakfast Topic: Is it time to implement artifacts? {WoW}

Sep 29th 2011 8:18AM Everyone knows the difference between full 353 and 378/391, so I don't see the need for this.

No new WoW accounts in China {WoW}

Feb 8th 2010 7:56PM Mainland china already has BC. I saw people raiding sunwell in a Internet cafe when I was in Beijing in 2008.

Sell Activision Blizzard in the New Year? {BloggingStocks}

Jan 27th 2010 12:04AM agree with both above me. so, with this saturation, more people are now potential customers. also, $700 laptops now can run WoW@60fps, so every 15 year old who got a laptop for christmas is probably hanging out with Leroy Jenkins right now.

blizzard has 3 ip's dropping in the next 3 years (starcraft2, diablo3, ???), one of which is unannounced, probably something to break the mold of their usually graphic unintensive games.

on activision side, CoD:MW2 is still selling well after grossing $550m in the first 5 days (!!). then add on the entire guitar hero brand, with new DJ hero which got good reviews despite lackluster sales.

but beyond all sales figures, it's important with video games to realize everyone in the industry are all nerds (sorry, but I am too so w/e), so, in an often cultish manner, some developers become, basically, icons. Combined, ATVI owns:
-the best MMO of all time (WoW)
-the best fps of all time (MW2)
-Guitar hero brand
-many other highly reviewed games that didn't reach the popularity of the others

These guys rule the video game world, period. The only really comparable company is EA, but they don't quite have the scope of ATVI.

So, I basically disagree with you.
