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.

    People gotta complain about something.Patch 4.3 is going to be the biggest content patch released this expansion. THREE 5-man dungeons, an AWESOME raid, the raid-finder which will make that awesome raid accessible to basiclly everyone, darkmoon fair, a bunch of balance fixes... and here people are complaining that they didn't wake up in the morning to find a little monkey in their mailbox.You want a birthday present? 4.3 is coming out in a couple weeks. Happy birthday.

    It would be cool to get some kind of pet or something, but oh well. Not a big deal. Apparently to some though it's so horrible what Blizzard did they're cancelling. Makes me laugh a lot.

    Wrong. They are not mutually exclusive.

    When will you hard-headed and stubborn children get the clue that they have *teams*? Teams! Some teams work on things, some work on others. No TEAM is required to make the stupid tabard this year. One single programmer may have done it. It is the mark of a child with little scope in the world to not understand when things are not mutually exclusive.

    To be honest I like the xp gain, I was able to hit one of my alts to 80 much faster! ^_^

    When it says kills, does that include honorable kills?

    I'm disappointed that the item will go away. I wouldn't mind if it stayed.

    A screenshot I've taken a year ago, at 30.11.2010, of the letter they sent when the 6th anniversary came to the game.

    If to go line by line, they've added a word "yet", removed "(spoiler alert!)" and changed "this is going to be a rough year" to "this has been a rough year". Well.. basically, a copy/past, added an item that applies a minor buff and a visible, not even a physical, rehashed tabard which was used in their contest back in 2005.

    A thought comes to mind.. a developer(s) who get the job to do this year's anniversary for players scratches his head, clueless and indifferent to the emotional part of the whole matter, looks at the 6-year old tabard that wasn't used for a long time, and decides to rehash it. Least possible effort in work done - same money.

    And then we're talking about care and dedication to the true fans of this universe, of their passion, to their players who were with them, supporting them and their ideas for a very long time... indifference, cold, grey and bitter.

    Two years of subscription with Rift: Exclusive mounts, exclusive wardrobe set, plus a bunch of other goodies

    Seven years of WoW: An achievement and temporary item.

    You've got to admit, the difference in priority in player contentment is rather large.

    You don't have to defend Blizzard as if it were a scared helpless child. It's not going to cry itself to sleep at night on piles of money because people said something mean about a half assed tabard.

    Me: "Oh hey, a new anniversary event, I wonder what they're offering? (See awful pink tabard, no pet.) Me: "Nope, that's not worth re-activating even for a month."

    I wish there was more time in the day, so I could spend even more time QQing on wow forums about every single action Blizzard makes.

    If they had bothered to make it a somewhat proper buff. That would reflect a proper celebration, I would not complain.

    50% or even a 100% buff for 2 weeks, now that would be a celebration!
    Something people could FEEL, appreciate and enjoy.
    Something we could want and try to get as much out of for 2 weeks as we possibly could.
    Not some little buff where I'm looking at the numbers and asking myself "Is this lil buff really working?"

    We just wanna be appreciated.. is that too much to ask?

    Isn't it actually normal to give the one celebrating his anniversary the gifts? So instead of blizzard giving us a gift, we should give blizzard a gift....

    Anyway, not too overwhelmed by the gift itself. It's nice for my rep grind, but that's about it. Don't want a new pet either, since it will be a cheap made one anyway. And it's a hell of a lot better than last years "gift".

    Over the next 6 months i expect 6million or more will quit wow
    Hahahahahaha


    also I can see why they didn't give a pet or anything, cuz they're trying to make stuff disappear less often from the game. Joining a game for the first time only to find out half the cool stuff isn't available anymore always sucks for new players. No need to be like Cartman who expects to get big gifts at someone ELSE's birthday party.

    I also laugh at people saying "oh they gave us crap instead of new models or balanced pvp", what did you expect they'd release a huge secret patch just for the 7th anniversary?

    And if they WOULD have made something like a new tabard or pet, wouldn't people have cried just as much that they were wasting time on new tabards instead of new models and content and balance?

    True, but most celebrations people attend aren't paid for by the guests month in, month out.
