Jun 10th 2011 7:37AM "Open beta" stopped being about testing a while ago. It's more become a demo than anything else. It's all another marketing scheme to let people get a taste of the release before it's actually out.
They'll most likely have a head start like Rift. That way, it staggers the crush of players into two floods instead of one, server crashing, mess. The early adopter gets names reserved and gives them ideas of how many more to expect at release.
May 17th 2011 5:47PM As the player base starts to dwindle (inevitably), watch more much more of this to make up for lost base subscriber revenue.
There are only so many pars and mounts they can sell.
Apr 8th 2011 9:55AM They waited a bit too long, I think. Not so sure in two or three years that the market for a Warcraft movie will still be there.
If they wanted to capitalize on the fad (and that's what Hollywood is all about), it sould have come out already.
The window of opportunity is closing. Though if it's a great story it wont matter so much.
Mar 10th 2011 7:32AM Now I have to listen to Chakra noise span all day at the AH???

Old CS/TFC player here. Roger Wilco was THE choice before Gamespy got their hands on it anyway...
Mar 6th 2011 5:06PM Worgen in robes= fail. I have to turn off the helm because it looks like you have a worm stuck on your head.
Mar 1st 2011 3:39PM Wasn't implying that it was a WoW-killer or anything but it's solid and enjoyable and people seem pretty unhappy with WoW lately.
Rift seems to have hit WoW at a low point is all.
Mar 1st 2011 3:07PM I predict one of the lowest nights of activity on the WoW servers ever.
Mar 1st 2011 7:21AM Still not getting me back.
Feb 25th 2011 7:56PM I play to relax. Cats has not been relaxing in the slightest. I like a challenge but getting blamed when things go bad (even when it has nothing to do with my healing) is not fun.
Haven't played in three weeks.
They can't lure me with pets and mounts anymore.
It sometimes seems like that's their big draw now and not the content.
