4.2.0A Patch Notes
2011/08/08 at 5:48 PM
Blizzard has been pretty quiet lately, but they have just posted some new patch notes for the latest live mini-patch 4.2.0A. This patch contained no new content, items, or any of that fun stuff but instead includes a number of system bugfixes. Many of the issues which were causing client crashes have been fixed, so some players should still appreciate this boring little patch!
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm patch 4.2.0A is now available on all realms! Below you'll find the official patch notes.

News Round Up: World of Warcraft Loses Another 300k Subscribers and More
2011/08/03 at 4:19 PM
The awaited second-quarter call just happened and World of Warcraft is at 11.1 million subscribers, down another 300k from the last reported number. The previous quarter had reported a loss of 600k.
However, this doesn't mean revenues themselves are down or that Blizzard itself is in trouble.
Gamasutra reported today
on Activision Blizzard's second fiscal quarter earnings which were 53% higher than predicted. The company largely beat its expectations because of a large increase in digital sales company wide, which includes things like Blizzard's digital subscriptions and store. CEO Bobby Kotick followed up by saying that there would be continued investments in all of Blizzard's staple titles, including the upcoming unnamed MMO nicknamed Titan.

Blizzard Trademarks "Mists of Pandaria," Next Expansion?
2011/08/02 at 7:00 PM
Put on your tinfoil hats--it looks like an April Fools' joke may become a reality. Last week, Blizzard filed for a trademark for "Mists of Pandaria" under computer software. This is a common practice for the registration of expansion titles; for example, the Cataclysm was filed for trademark on June 26, 2009 and its domain was bought subsequently. Similarly, a Pandaria domain was also purchased last week.
This means that it's possible that the next expansion will be announced at BlizzCon and that it will be Mists of Pandaria.
Let the speculation run wild--what do you guys think? Is this our future expansion or a false alarm? Will the pandarens be a playable race for both sides, a neutral faction even though Blizzard has said that they like factions to be identifiable and distinct for horde and alliance? Or maybe their role will be more of a lore one, focusing on them as quest hubs and a central conflict?

News Round Up: Diablo III Auction House News, BlizzCon Contests, and More
2011/08/01 at 2:33 PM
Finally, some news on Diablo III was posted overnight from Blizzard on
their official website
. The biggest news was that there will be an auction house that functions with real life money in addition to another auction house that is in-game currency only. They've posted FAQs about both features which tell you everything you need to know and we've included them below.
It's worth mentioning that this bombshell--real life money for items in Diablo III--has been received both extremely positively and extremely negatively. It's created a lot of debate and people are
divided about this. Personally, as a WoW fansite, we think this feature can potentially work for the Diablo series but should stay far away from World of Warcraft. However, that's just our personal opinion, and we welcome yours. We can see both sides of the debate clearly and understand people will have different view points.
