2010/03/03 at 2:03 PM
Some of you may know about this little addon from the last time we
it, but for those who don't here's a little explanation:
is an addon that takes the stats from an item you are looking at and gives it a score based on a weight scale, very similar to our own stat weighting system. The higher the score the "better" the item is according to the weight scales you design.
And now, Pawn users will be happy to know that the team over there has added a little extra awesome into the addon by using our

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Fundraiser for WoW Players
2010/02/26 at 10:00 PM
About a week ago I got a letter that was very affecting. It almost got lost in the inbox shuffle, but fortunately I caught it only a few days late, because I found it really affecting.
It warms my heart to see gamers coming out to do something really good for society, and considering the way mainstream media only seems to notice when a gamer shoots up a school, it's more important than ever that we work together to get the word out.
Here's the message:

So in a lot of the Blizzard interviews and editorials and

People go where the gear is.
