Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of our Countdown to Burning Crusade! You have a precious short few minutes to enter the day 2 caption contest, so head over there for a chance to win a 60-day game card. For today's contest, we're going to stretch you even further -- it's going to require some Photoshop-fu (or The Gimp, or whatever you use to do that thing you do) to take home today's prize, which is the complete original Warcraft book trilogy: Day of the Dragon, Lord of the Clans and The Last Guardian.

In the venerable tradition of Fark, you'll need to apply your creativity and your Photoshop skills to the above image (just right-click to download a copy). You can do whatever you like -- add caption bubbles, drop in a new background, graft on real human heads, whatever you want -- the only rule is your result cannot be NSFW. To submit your entry, send a JPG version of your image to us at countdowntobc AT, and make sure to include "Countdown day 3" in the subject. Your file size must be under 5MB and it must be received by us no later than 3:30pm EST tomorrow, Thursday January 4. We'll choose one lucky winner to receive the original Warcraft Universe trilogy and publish the best of the bunch tomorrow. Good luck!

Burning Crusade goes gold, expected to meet January 16 release date

Tseric is confirming on the Blizzard forums that BC has already gone gold (i.e. been shipped for mass duplication -- "going gold" in the software industry doesn't refer to sales numbers as it does in the music industry), indicating that Blizzard has every expectation that the expansion will meet its planned January 16 ship date. This comes as a response to recent rumours claiming yet another delay for Burning Crusade. No more delays -- time to pen in the release date on your calendars. Can we get a /cheer up in this piece?!

Speaking of January 16, here's a heads up to tune in to WoW Insider starting January 1 for our official Countdown to Burning Crusade -- every day we're going to be giving away Free StuffTM via a series of daily contests. So be sure to check in for some fun and some cool prizes, and join us to share in the excitement as we count down to BC on (confirmed!) January 16.
