That's what I was thinking. The freaking South Park episode is already 12 years old.

It's been a pretty packed expansion so far. Every town I've been to has had a load of players, both Alliance and Horde gathered. I'd still prefer it if Blizz actually gave out total users subbed though.

Well deserved, Warcraft is immortal. In some ways it reminds me of Vanilla which is a positive.

Oh. It came out. That's why the Twitch StarCraft channel has been flooded with ads and story trailers.

I started playing again because of this. I'm only level 25 so far, and I'm honestly finding it to be very tedious. Maybe I should have started with a level 110. I think the problem is that I've played so much WoW on and off over the years that it's too familiar to me now. I've always been more of a casual; once I reach level cap I stop playing (if I even manage to do that).

Wow, I can't believe this is still alive and thriving. As a fan of the RTS games and even though I'm not an MMO fan, I feel happy that they still continue to succeed with this fantasy world.
