If you have off today and are trying to play Blizzard games, you may be running into some authentication issues. The Battle.net launcher displays this special message:
Account Security Warning: Mobile Armory and Battle.net Website
2013/06/25 at 1:38 AM
There’s been a recent increase in unauthorized World of Warcraft account-logins via our website and the World of Warcraft mobile armory app.
We’re in the process of notifying any account holders who were not using an authenticator and whose account showed signs of unauthorized access (e.g., logging in from an unusual IP address). If you are among this group, you will receive an email describing how to reset your account.
As a result of these activities, access to the World of Warcraft auction house via the mobile app has been taken off-line temporarily. Upon request, our customer support team will restore in-game items and gold for any accounts impacted.
While no means of account security is guaranteed, every precaution you take to secure your computer and your account—including changing your password periodically—adds another defensive barrier. We strongly encourage everyone to take a few moments to read through the security tips available on our support website and follow the suggestions posted there.
All Character Services 50% Off This Week, New Battle.net Desktop Client
2013/06/04 at 4:29 PM
It looks like a new Battle.net desktop client, similar to Steam, may be on its way--a huge improvement over the Launcher. When recently going through Hearthstone data, we found some details on this desktop client:
All Blizzard games are integrated--no more separate launchers for each game.
There are tabs to view information on all Blizzard games, patch notes, and promotions, as well as news and blogs written by Blizzard CMs.
Many Settings options for all games, including game installation, security options, game updates, battle.net app specifics, and network details.
None of the screenshot shown are finalized--this appears to just be an early teaser, although the beta logo at the top left would seem to indicate that we'll hear more about this soon.

Patch 5.3 Will Introduce an In-Game Browser
2013/04/09 at 5:12 PM
We saw some LUA strings today that indicated an in-game browser was coming our way and sure enough it was just announced! So far the browser seems to be focused on World of Warcraft support tickets and will allow players to search for answers to their in-game problems without having to leave the comfort of Azeroth!
It's currently up on the latest PTR build--you can clear cache, delete cookies, go to home/next/previous page, and refresh. There is no address bar currently.
We’re adding a feature-limited web browser to World of Warcraft that will replace the in-game support system with a direct portal to the Battle.net Support site. Our aim is to give players in-game easy access to the site’s robust knowledge base and support contact system.
We’ve gone to great lengths to improve our website support systems and we want to offer access to all of its robust features in-game. The new browser will make it it easier to find information to help you resolve issues you’re experiencing or contact our representatives if you need
10 and 25-man Lockouts No Longer Shared in 5.1 on KR Realms
2012/10/25 at 11:15 AM
So it's starting to look like 5.1 might have some surprises in store for raiders. The Korean World of Warcraft website
had this update today
stating that in 5.1, 10 and 25-man lockouts will no longer be shared for KR realms--a call back to the days of Wrath of the Lich King where the lockouts were separate and many considered 25-man raids to be vastly more beneficial than 10-man raids. Additionally, 10 and 25-man ilevels will be different giving raiders a further benefit for tackling 25-man raids.
Of course, it remains unseen if this will transition at any point to other realms. At this time, it doesn't appear to be the case.
However, if you look at World of Warcraft's recent PvE scene, it's been obvious that there's a decline in 25-mans that's both felt by the community and heard by the developers. There isn't really a reason to raid 25-mans over 10-mans, as far as time versus reward is concerned; it's hard to maintain a 25-man roster and remain competitive in today's Azeroth. Even world firsts are being tackled by 10-mans
