WoW Reaches 12 Million Subscribers
07/10/2010 alle 12:31
You know, just when you think WoW has FINALLY plateaued, they hit another milestone.
I caught an article on CNET this morning referencing a
from Activision-Blizzard, announcing that they have reached a monumental
12 million subscribers
. That's active subscribers, too—the press release defines subscribers as "...individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access."
The CNET article goes on to make some somewhat laughable claims about what this means for the future of WoW (for instance, that if we use Everquest as a guide, we can predict that WoW will release 480 expansions over its lifespan), but the core number is astounding. Even now, when everyone is kind of waiting for Cataclysm to start everything back up again, WoW's subscribers are still increasing.
New Archaeology Skill Page
07/10/2010 alle 12:01
We're constantly at work to bring you new and better Cataclysm-related tools, and today we've released one we think will be pretty helpful - a new
skill page! On the page, you'll see a list of each item you can piece together along with spell to create it, which contains the lore behind each item. Included in the page are how many fragments each artifact requires and what kind of keystones you can use to make it.
You can read up more about Archaeology on the official
or in Wowhead's
of the profession!
PS: Ding 1000 posts!
The Yearly Marmot
06/10/2010 alle 17:35
It's the one year anniversary of the Weekly Marmot (well, almost)! In an extra-long extended episode, I go over my history of gaming: how I got into gaming, what games I used to play, how I got into MMOs, and how I got involved with the World of Warcraft community. It's not exactly light viewing, so fix yourself some popcorn and settle in for the
nerdiest story ever told.
And don't worry -- we'll be right back to the regular old information-filled Weekly Marmot next week, for the Patch 4.0 Survival Guide!

Not Going To BlizzCon? Get the Virtual Ticket or DTV Stream!
05/10/2010 alle 15:02
Every year getting BlizzCon tickets proves to be a phenominal pain in the butt for the majority of Blizzard fans - no matter how much they streamline the purchasing process (which, I'll admit, was significantly better this year) the truth is that most fans won't get tickets. Some people can't justify the expense for the tickets or the travel - after all, other than the "experience" of actually being at BlizzCon, you aren't missing out on much considering there's always more than enough coverage of the events and panels, and thousands of pictures and YouTube videos of every waking second of the convention!
If that isn't enough, though, you can enjoy

) and StarCraft II in-game items!

Running of the Gnomes, Race for a Cure!
02/10/2010 alle 22:22
Noxy here! I don't write many blog posts, but I was linked
by a friend, and I fell in love with the idea.
I'm standing here in Booty Bay, surrounded by lots and lots of little pink gnomes all gathered for the same cause: to support the fight against Breast Cancer.
SeeD is an Alliance side guild on Scarlet Crusade-US, and last year they decided to turn their tabards pink, and post around on the forums letting people know and encouraging them to remind the ladies in their lives to speak to their doctors, and to show how much they care. This year they have organised a fun-run--for each pink gnome that shows, SeeD members have pledged to donate various amounts of money to the Susan G Komen Foundation.
At the peak they reached a total of 160 gnomes, with an estimated $200+ raised. (and thats just the guilds officers! the final total is still yet to be tallied!)

The Weekly Marmot - Guild Restructuring in Cataclysm
02/10/2010 alle 02:18
This week I answer a handful of great questions from a guy named Helbereth (aka Hellbreath) about a few of the challenges facing guilds -- both new and old -- in the transition period into 4.0 and Cataclysm. Is forming a new guild for Cataclysm a good idea? What kind of challenges will the "hardcore 10-man guild" face? How does this affect loot rules?
Also, don't forget to tune in for Episode 50 next week!
