    Real or not, I'm not putting my password in anything Chinese.
    New Signature in development. Legion Windwalker is a garbage class that I no longer wish to play.
    Blackrock Foundry was probably the best part of WOD, but that's really just a blackhanded compliment.

    Holy shit.

    Would take a lot of time and resources to perfect, but that'd be pretty cool if it's actually possible. Doesn't seem too likely though methinks.


    I'm actually a Druid! I'm just too lazy to finish my new Avatar/Signature, rip!

    I can tell it's low quality. But the biggest feat there was making a likely Java app that could interact with Blizz's servers.
    "I quit WoW."

    If I say it's Azshara next enough times, eventually I'll be right. So here we go again. It's got to be Azshara next, so get ready for the Sylvanas expansion we inevitably get instead!

    They might just be streaming the game.

    Is most likely a Java app that works with Private servers.

    Does it really matter when it is on a private server ?

    This just in, every b.net account has been compromised.

    Yes they did.

    You put in your e-mail and password, choose your character, then watch as your character mysteriously moves by itself, sells its gear to the vendor, and sends all your gold to a player with a name you can't read.

    Yes it's possible. It's the same as Gaikai or OnLive. They have a server where the game runs and just stream it through an app to the browser. They use low quality settings in-game so that they can run as many clients simultaneously as possible. You can do the same thing with other programs. Just google remote PC access or something similar.

    It would be REALLY trivial to run a 640x480 WoW game client and hook in an app that streams the present buffer and interprets/redirects remote input. There are some US services that do something pretty similar. Effectively you don't need a fast graphics card or CPU, you just need a REALLY good network connection. I'd expect to see this sort of thing take off 5-10 years from now, but it's still in its infancy.

    In this example of course, you're probably just throwing away your credentials.

    I don't actually understand the cloud technology, but the whole idea of running World of Warcraft client on a webpage is damn cool, the only thing I care is whether it would be laggy or not.
