Blizzard Sells 10,000 Blizzcon Tickets In About 15 SecondsEdit
It was bound to be a quick ride, but we never dreamed it would be that quick. Blink and you missed it. Blizzard put their first batch of tickets to Blizzcon 2009 on sale Saturday morning via the Blizzard Store, and flexed the muscle of their new queue system for ticket sales, and it was like The Flash vs. Superman. Potential buyers of tickets got into a queue that was much longer than it needed to be to sell-out… in seconds. We were there.
If you didn’t get a ticket to Blizzcon, you might be able to win one from one of the many WoW fansites that Blizzard has set up for contests.

Back In My Day, We Hit Things With Sticks!Edit
We rarely, seldomly, only occasionally, almost never suggest that you visit the world of warcraft official forums. They’re bad for your health. But every once in a while, a thread comes along that makes the whole place shine. And that has happened just today, with a thread started by Reziel from the Bonechewer realms, entitled “/equip rose colored glasses”. Therein, he asks posters to do something very simple: “Tell a story for the new players that idealizes classic wow, and makes it sound like the best thing since sliced bread.” And the responses are classic.

I’ve been looking to get into RPing somewhere and was curious if you could point me to a website or somewhere which might help me a little bit with the basics of this. I enjoy WoW a lot but am looking to have a little bit different playstyle rather then just PvP PvE and ETC.
