The scammers make me laugh

14 Jul

No invite from the beta yet for me, but that’s not keeping some good folks in China from inviting me to sign up for it on http://www.battelnetworks.com, or battle-net-worldofwarcfrat.com.  It changes day to day.  Either Blizzard has gone insane, and has also honestly forgotten my current e-mail account, or they’ve got some really poor Quality Control over in the hack shops there in Beijing.

And it is China since my interim e-mail provider reported 2 accesses of my account from China shortly after the initial hacks had taken place.

BAD HACKER, BAD.  您是壞人民。  請中止。

But it’s amusing because it’s so pitifully bad.

Blizzard’s recommendation is to bookmark their sites for yourself.  And if somebody wants you to click something taking you there, take your own link there.

    Yep they are persistant blighters.
    I’m sooo looking forward to the Cataclysm release as well.

    Just want to share some information with you all for those that use the WOWHead tooltips in your websites.
    With WOWHead updating their item database they have been lagging a bit.
    So for all you folks who write your own sites I have done some digging and found the best way to put WOWhead tooltips on to your website. Since it’s a little long i’ve written the article and placed it here:

    Since doing this my site loading problems caused by WOWhead have gone.

    Good luck hope this helps.

    You know Kinless – I remember when we started blogging back in like 2005. We’ve been through vanilla content – BC – and we’ve been all over this Lich King thing ad nauseum.

    The fact that two long, long time players don’t have beta invites (still) kinda burns.

      I’m still checking every day. Like an excited kid checking for the mail every day waiting for that decoder ring to arrive that he got for eating 100 boxes of cereal and mailing the box tops in. Anyway day now!
