    Yeah, WoW does take over lives. I know that first hand.

    Cool. Since it's an MMO, it makes sense to have it downloadable. :)

    Is the use of the extra 's' on the end of internet accidental or deliberate?

    I assume you still have to pay for a burning crusade key so you can upgrade your account.

    *bangs head against wall*

    You should have seen the complaints on the wow forums in the months running up to the TBC launch, many people were crying out for this.

    So many cardboard boxes, CD's, printed materials and so on were made and shipped to many customers that didn't really need them. people had pre-orders cancelled/late and some countries simply didn't get enough copies to meet demand...

    and a few weeks after the launch they release a download service...

    *arg!* :wallbash:

    This was similar idiocy to the HL2 CD edition coming with CD copy protection that was pointless, as you had to activate it online anyway :p

    Kind of makes sense...

    I'd imagine the main reason they did so was so they knew what the upper limit of new signups would be on the day of release (so they would know they had the hardware to handle the amount of new players.)

    Not that it really worked, mind you, since the night of release was an action packed evening of crashing world servers and unbelievable lag. What fun! Way to plan, Blizzard!

    But still. It was probably the idea.

    I didn't sleep for three days from the moment I left the release party. I DID, however, take a break twice to take a shower and continue. So at least my hygiene is still there.

    Few bubbles from 70... Stupid Work! If it weren't for work I would have had 70 a week ago!

    seems kinda pointless aiming this at current players, i don't know of a single WoW player that didn't run out and buy it on release or the day after

    Hell I won't be playing in a year or two (unless they release the expansions yearly as they hope too) but I still play **** loads... too much! I really should stop playing as much as I do, it can't be good for me.

    Anyway, I hope people have to pay for this downloaded version otherwise I've watsed £30 on a box. :p
