The Queue: In case of emergency break glass, release kraken

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. All the usual suspects are sick, so backup emergency Queue writer Matthew Rossi has breached his vault and, bypassing all the eldritch seals, brings forth a Queue that writhes with tentacles vast beyond imagining.

Isn't that wild? For once, World of Warcraft has completely downplayed the thing. As you can see from this wikipedia article, Jacob Wallenberg argued that the kraken wasn't very large since it was only roughly sixteen kilometers.
