    Nope, when you launch WoW through the client it skips the login screen and logs you in automatically.

    Have wanted and expected this for quite some time now and I'm glad that it seems almost near completion for launch by the looks of it. Probably we don't have to wait too long before an actual release date is announced. Great work, Blizzard! I am more than pleased. =)

    That's not even getting close to why Origin is a terrible, terrible launch client.

    oh my glob guys this thing is totally similar to that other thing!
    alternatively: 20% cooler? (note: may be inaccurate)

    see also: way cleaner/sleeker than steam, also only plays blizzard games. it's only similar in functionality.

    Not gonna happen.


    EDIT: also since when does StarCraft 2 subscription based and requires game time to be added?
    Mockups are meant to give an initial impression of features or layout.
    Their content is often placeholder and not meant to be accurate.
    It is entirely possible that they meant to do WoW game time and someone did it wrong, or they simply did not care about getting that accurate.

    At present you can skip the launcher and only run it when you need to do updates.
    It is a reasonable assumption you can continue to do that.

    No new launcher yet has removed this option, so why the instant assumption that you HAVE to go through this one to reach the game.

    There are a lot of things Steam does right, so really is trying to take some of those on a bad thing ?
    Also I think the typical style of the World of Warcraft interface is outdated, and would benefit from a modern touch.
    The likes of the MiirGui @ wowinterface graphics replacements shows what I mean.

    I think that only applies to the chat functionality and not actually in-game, though that has been discussed in the past and is not out of the question as far as I am aware.

    I don't think those strings refer to expansions.
    Alayea - Enhance/Resto (Main) Lithala - BM/Surv Gekkani - Disc/Shadow
    Mathrie - Fury/Prot Mayae - Resto/Bal Elita - Frost/Blood
    Chrystie - Frost/Fire Draika - Combat Ioreth - Ret/Prot

    Will you need to have an active subscription to use this, or can I use it for free to talk with people I used to be in WoW with before I quit?

    No seriously, with steam often using 100+ MB and origin around 80, this might become fun in the future.
    CPU: I7 2600k @ 3.5GHz - GPU:ASUS DCUIIO GTX680 MOBO: MSI Z68-GD65 G3 - RAM: Kingston 8GB DDR3 - SSD: MX100 512GB - HDD: WD Blue 1TB/WD Green 2TB - CASE: Aerocool Xwarrior - Monitor: Samsung SA300 23" + Medion 23" (2x 1080p) - PSU: Corsair TX 850 - OS: Win7 Ultimate 64

    Because RAM is so expensive and you only have 1gb right?

    Yes, it does. It says WOW. They're most likely planning ahead of time so the code works correctly. Yeah few days late but better late then never :-P
