  • My sympathies to those ripped off $120 for WoW Cataclysm at shops only to find it's $30 on @blizzardcs website. I say demand a refund. #
  • World of Warcraft players seem to have been dicked by @blizzardcs again, notorious for poor server maintenance times, Cataclysm is delayed. #
  • WoW Cataclysm is officially the most tedious convoluted single linear quest chain from hell. #
  • I hate peanuts. There's always that one nastyass nut that tastes like death in every bag that entire ruins it for the rest of the peanuts. #

WoW Cat @blizzardcs Cataclysmic Failure to Launch

At midnight realm time, everyone went scrambling for new content. Their European counterparts had been playing the game for half a day before them. Nothing. In all the wonders that make up the untraceable lack of forethought Blizzard have, the game launched two hours later when Blizzard’s head office hit midnight in the US.

That time came, and went, with talk of it being pushed back. Ten minutes later everyone got a message saying close WoW and open it again and you’ll access the content.

In what amounted to typing “Press alt and F4 for ops!” in an IRC chat room the entire server emptied rapidly, and of course no one could get back on.

With no official word from Blizzard on the issue, WoW players are left in the same negligent limbo they’re in every Tuesday night, paying full price for a game they only get access to 7/8ths of.

Speaking of prices, Australians paid up to $120 for their game today, while online it cost $30, similar to paying $149 for Final Fantasy only to find it’s $30-40 in the US. Given that the USD$ is equal to the AUD$ there’s still no word on the mystery tax we seem to pay to own legal hard copy versions of games.

The answer, pirate them. Edit launcher.wtf and change LK references to CT.
