World of Warcraft: Europe’s anniversary, Patch 8.1.5 details, and Arena championships

    
6

While World of Warcraft officially turned 14 years old last November, astute historians might remember that it wasn’t for several months after that until the MMO launched in Europe. In fact, it was February 11th, 2005, that European gamers got their hands on Blizzard’s creation, which makes yesterday a special anniversary of sorts.

Meanwhile, modern WoW players are looking forward to Patch 8.1.5, which is currently on the public test realm. Some of the big changes datamined lately include a new Alliance wolf mount, a reduction of the price of heirloom upgrade tokens, Draenor faction commendations, and the addition of Warlords of Draenor timewalking mounts.

Over in the game’s e-sports sphere, Blizzard is currently hosting the Arena World Championship Spring Cup in both North America and Europe. Watch all of the competition so far on Twitch!

Still no flying, so I’ll wait (I really miss my characters more than anything else).
I’ll stick to games that are happy to cater to my tastes in the meantime (ESO’s never tried to force me to raid yet, for instance… and yet I’m staying engaged. It’s weird because I do like raiding and dungeons, but on my terms only).
See you when you have flying again, cupcakes!

So did Actiblizpocalypse happen as was predicted? Not seen anything other than speculation so far.

Nothing I’ve seen. Supposedly after the call( I believe 5 Pacific?). Sadly, they could halve that fuzzy headed buffoons salary and still pay 300 people 50K a year (like that would ever happen).

Looks like ATVI isn’t doing the earnings call until after market close.

I wouldn’t consider any of those big changes.
