Apr 19th 2011 1:49PM I remember it like it was yesterday...Ok..maybe not. But its one of the great moments of Wow gameplay. I was there when it opened and I was on most of the day fighting in Silithus. Fighting along our guild. Fighting along with the Horde. Many of whom we fought against in Warsong Gulch and prior to that Tauren Mill, Southshore open PVP. This epic Event brought the server together. Built up a sense of community. There was no griefing. Due to the amount of time it took, there were more people interested in opening the gates than were interested in keeping someone from opening it. Chances are there were only 2 groups making the push for the scepter. 1 alliance and 1 horde. And in the end they both worked together to make sure it opened.
Unfortunately it probably won't ever happen again, due to the technical difficulties but for those of us who were there or participated its something we won't forget.
Jul 6th 2010 1:00PM Thanks Blizz, for opening me up to spam email, Junk mail, stalking, etc. There's a whole slew of privacy issues that Blizz is opening us up to. Just because they don't put our place of business, city, address, phone number online doesn't mean that some other company won't be able to match your name with all of that info. Don't think that Google won't compile all that info. Don't think that debt collectors won't be trolling that data. Don't think that Political Parties won't be trolling that data so that they can now send you those wonderful snail mail advertisements. This has bad written all over it.
