MMO-Champion - WoW Turns 7! Anniversary Tabard now available in-game
Diablo 3 - Today we have the datamined Loading Screens from Act 1 through Act 4 and a couple of wiki highlights.

WoW Turns 7! Anniversary Tabard now available in-game
World of Warcraft turns 7 this year (see World of Warcraft’s Seventh Anniversary! and to celebrate, players will be awarded a tabard and the WoW's 7th Anniversary Feat of Strength. The celebration lasts from November 20 to December 3, this is a visual tabard and it will not unequip your current tabard.

Update - I just realized that the "Celebration Package" item summoning the tabard requires the 7th anniversary event to be active, it most likely means that this item will expire. Might want to wait for a blue confirmation on that before you go through all your alts to get it.

    Is it just me or does the message on the mail letter sound like a cry for help or a cryptic "we're dying" message."This has been a very rough year for the world of azeroth" Implying the subs are dropping exponentially."We need you more than ever"For the love of god don't cancel your sub too.

    All the whining in here is the equivalent of going to a friend's birthday party, asking for a present, then crying that it isn't up to your standards.

    It might not just be you but your interpretation is wrong. They are talking about Deathwing and the Cataclysm that happened to the WORLD of azeroth. There is nothing about the sentences that implies subscription drops or "WoW is dying".

    ITT : People overacting over the fact they get something for doing absolutly nothing at all. I don't remember seeing anywhere that Blizzard has to give us anything for the anniversary. Chill Out.

    I think its mostly that it feels they just don't care anymore. Baby blizzard bear. Ony Whelp. Then nothing. Now a tabard that might be temporary (and reuses a graphic (really ugly one, no less) so theres a bit of half-assedness there). Mostly I laughed when I saw it, because I was going to resub and get my wife to resub too. Now I won't.

    This is just terrible. I can understand that Blizz is busy and all but now they are not even trying! This isn't a reward for being loyal customers, a BOA pet like the lil polar bear, or the whelp are. This is just sad. And ugly. And they wonder why they are losing customers, its giving us useless junk like this as a "thank you".

    ... Are you kidding me? Seriously? The fact that you chose to blatantly take it out of context and leave out the first part of the sentence doesn't make it go away; "With the return of a certain very large dragon, this has been a rough year for the world of Azeroth". It specifically refers to in-game lore events and has nothing to do with subscription numbers whatsoever. Holy WoW-bashing conspiracy nuts, Batman! Only on mmo-champ -.-

    On topic though, the reward seems rather lackluster. I mean, not only is it limited duration, it's also a reused model? It won't even leave us with a permanent memory or souvenir for being around at this time? Then what's the point of it? :S Well sure, I suppose it's a step up from last year's "no anniversary pet this time, but let's shamelessly release not one but two store pets simultaneously with the anniversary, DERP", but only by a neglegible margin.

    Its not free, we pay $15 a month. Its a lame reward to players saying "thanks for playing."

    You didnt do anything for it. Don't like it? Noone cares. It's a gift.
    Show some common decency, smile, and leave.

    If the worst issue you have in your life is that something you received for free, isn't amazing.. I wish I had your problems.

    Deal with it.

    They really don't have to give you shit anyway since you're paying for the game, not a reward every year.

    No, you pay the subscription for the game at 15 bucks a month, genius. Worst argument ever.

    Are all you brainwashed???? If this was put into words it would be something like this... "After 7 years of you players giving us money to continue to keep this game alive, we're giving you a shitty tabard instead of finding ways to balance pve and pvp without hurting one or the other... or updating race models like the player base has asked for since TBC... this was much easier to do and saved us money/time, here you go" So glad i don't have to spend anymore money on this crap, 0 respect for blizzard.

    You realize that they gave absolutely nothing last year??

    Wow.
    Heres another way it could sound.
    "After providing entertainment, every month, for less than the cost of one hours wage, for 7 years, we are also giving you a gift!"
