Latest Headlines for World of Warcraft

  • Returning to Draenor

    It's been roughly two years since I last played World of Warcraft. A run of disappointing expansions and ageing gameplay mechanics drove me away from Blizzard's MMO, and into a nomadic search for something new, exciting and satisfyingly deep. But then, like a siren's call, Warlords of Draenor tugged at me. Although I was deeply skeptical about returning, could WoW's latest expansion turn me around?

  • Subscriptions Soar Over the 10M Mark

    Thanks to over 3.3M in sales on launch day, World of Warcraft subscriber numbers have soared over the 10M mark, probably a large factor in the server issues for the first several days of the Warlords of Dreanor expansion. These are the highest subscriber numbers since 2012.

  • Limited Time Only

    We've all seen the signs before: 'limited time only' the words say, usually with a McDonald's McRib sandwich plastered on it. We dismiss the idea of a 'limited time only' experience. Holiday events come along like the seasons they represent and we don't truly find it devastating if we missed out--it will all come back next year. However, what if a feature, a paid one, was truly here for a limited time only... should players be punished for the lack of participation?

  • Five Days of Subscription Time Added by Way of Apology

    Blizzard has issued a public apology for the World of Warcraft technical issues after the launch of Warlords of Draenor. In addition to admitting to a poor launch experience, Blizzard is also giving a good faith gesture to its community by giving all subscribers in all regions five days of game time in compensation for the frustration.

  • Largest Subreddit Shut Down Briefly as a Protest

    Over the weekend, the largest World of Warcraft subReddit was shut down temporarily by one of its moderators. The shutdown was seen as a way to protest the recent server woes that World of Warcraft has been undergoing since the launch of the Warlords of Draenor expansion last week. Once this particular editor was able to log into WoW, the subReddit was reopened but the backlash against his decision has been a phenomenon all its own.

  • Warlords of Draenor Review in Progress #1

    There's nothing that kills procrastination on writing an article more than the fact that the game you're supposed to be writing about is, well let's just say "non-functioning". Yes, I'm talking about the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor and, yes, it's been one of those days.

  • Blizzard Reveals DDOS Attacks on Servers

    In what is becoming sadly normal on a game's launch day, Blizzard has confirmed that World of Warcraft servers are under DDOS attack from an outside source that is resulting in server disconnects and lag rendering the Warlords of Draenor expansion unplayable by many. Blizzard is undertaking a series of fixes in order to return server stability and will be keeping the community informed.

  • The Top 5 Free-to-Play WoW Clones

    The term "WoW Clone" gets thrown around a lot these days. While it may not really be fair to claim that any game should be labeled a clone of another game, it is the reality that we live in. World of Warcraft is, by far, the biggest and most popular MMORPG in the world and as the old saying goes, "If you can't beat 'em, copy 'em," or something like that.

  • BlizzCon 2014 - Warlords of Draenor & Anniversary Interview

  • A New Player’s Impressions of World of Warcraft

    I've been playing MMORPGs for most of my gaming life. As someone in their mid-twenties, I can't claim to have been around for years and years losing myself in these virtual worlds, but I feel like I have a pretty good pulse on the industry as a whole. My MMO experiences first started with the original EverQuest, a game I would watch one of my brothers play when I would go to visit him.

  • WoW as Cancer Therapy

    A new documentary centered primarily around World of Warcraft will be making its debut soon. Called "WoW Mom", the documentary originally started as a project to bring attention to Terry Bolts' rare form of cancer. It later evolved into a journey of discovery at how gaming communities, many within World of Warcraft most notably, have been created to bring sufferers from a wide range of ailments together in a therapeutic manner.

  • Looking For Group Documentary Trailer Arrives

    Blizzard has released a trailer for an upcoming World of Warcraft documentary entitled "Looking for Group" that chronicles the game's ten years of existence and takes a look behind the curtain. It further interviews players and fans around the world about their experiences with WoW and much more. Enjoy!

  • Blizzcon 2014: Rumors and Speculation

    What has me wondering, however, is what those massive gaps in the Blizzcon schedule mean. These are the times and places that are usually reserved for THE BIG THING™ that Blizzard is most keenly focused on in any given year. A cursory look shows that the Keynote will take place on Friday morning, ending at 11:45 a.m. Then nothing, not a single thing sits on the schedule until after 2:00 p.m. This is not the Blizzcon of the past and it is prime gaming real estate.

  • The Spotlight Falls on Draenor

    With Warlords of Draenor almost upon us, World of Warcraft is riding a bit higher these days. Player numbers are up, and the hype is kicking in for the release in just a couple of weeks. Yet, Warlords of Draenor is being released in a different MMORPG mood and market this time around, even for Blizzard. Warlords promises a mix of advancement and nostalgia, and it really couldn't come at a better time.

  • Exterior Level Design Nagrand Style

    Blizzard has started a four-part "Artcraft" series that will give World of Warcraft fans an inside look at how the art team creates the exterior environments in and around the Nagrand zone in the upcoming expansion, Warlords of Draenor. Lead Level Designer Julian Morris kicks off today's article with a general look at how the design process is approached.

  • Ten Reasons to Look Forward to WoD

    I'm not really sure what sparked me to create a list for this week's column. It probably had to do with all the David Letterman I watched last week, which is something I also never really do, but they had the Foo Fighters on all week as their house musical guests and had some tremendous performances. I've also been on a bit of a World of Warcraft kick since I logged back in last week to check out patch 6.0.2.
