    Has nothing to do with WoD. It's a normal retail server, just usually invisible outside Blizzard offices.

    Maybe it is a GM test realm, maybe they've always had them and one just accidentally wound up being listed?

    Really to 100% prove this all you would need to record you opening a fresh realm list file and then start the game from your Wow.exe and I still would be skeptical.

    What would be the purpose of faking this? He isn't showing anything cool or anything interesting. Just "GM test realm"

    I'm also going to say that the fact Chaud isn't posting this as interesting enough to warrant attention >.>

    Pretty much.

    I mean would anyone be surprised in the slightest that GMs have realms to test things on? IE Try to duplicate things in-game / fix things that are broken without any chance of actually breaking anything on a realm where players are playing? You think they don't have their own versions of the test realms as well?

    No real reason to lie about it, nothing gained. Report as a bug and move on.

    Not surprising. It happens from time to time. It doesn't necessarily mean anything. Beta realms don't generally appear on live client lists - DB query will have a specific clause in it to only return LIVE servers that the accessing account should have access to.

    They have. There's internal realms named after many of the different developers at Blizzard which are usually used for them to test various things. If I remember correctly, the art team have like 15 realms named after people in that team allowing them to test out various changes and art assets without affecting people in other teams. Ditto for the other teams. They're internal only and some of them run modified maps specifically for testing specific changes (such as terrain shaders).

    The question was asked at Blizzcon and the answer was a single word: "No"
    Discussing moderation is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Please report problem posts instead of responding to them. If anyone is unclear about the rules please read our FAQ. Thanks.

    Sturgeon's Law states that 90% of everything is crap. When posting try and be in the 10% once in a while. It makes it better for everyone. First rule: Post about the topic, not about one another.

    The realms were (maybe still are) available to people at Dreamhack.

    If Warlords of Dreanor is available to test at Dreamhack, they may have put in a VPN to the Blizzard offices to allow connection to the alpha servers.

    If this is the case, any IP-filter flagged realms would also appear to anyone whom logged in with their standard account.
