    Why do people care about this so much, it's probably a small glitch it got out and they use for internal testing or gm training perhaps?

    Because some people are fascinated by the inner workings of things, especially things as big and complicated as World of Warcraft. It's the same reason that glitching to hidden / inaccessible locations (for exploration, not personal gain) has always been so popular.

    Whilst we're on the subject, if Blizzards argument that there isn't enough of a market for expansion servers held water then surely they wouldn't be being regularly asked to release one?

    GMs whom answer your tickets are almost never "in-game" any more, they use a chat interface like IRC and connect directly to the game. GMs only actually log into the client if they need to actually see a issue in person (a boss glitch for example).

    Only times I've "seen" a Game Master actually in game are when they've taken over a player's account for fixing things (once with my account to fix a quest bug and once for a guild member).

    I also gave a quite plausible explanation a few posts back.

    No, I am not. You can't see them in /who because they are not logged into any realm most of the time, this has been discussed and explained in the past.

    just look up the name of the GM who answered your last ticket in the armory. you will find all his charakters on every server. they are not logging into this gm test realm to handle tickets.

    Actually they did. 2013 BlizzCon. They said a flat out no.

    Tell you what kiddo, just to make you feel like a idiot. Put in a ticket and ask them yourself. They will tell you that they use a chat interface program to chat with you now.

    They stopped logging into the game after people started messing with GM island and they updated technology. It is a lot easier to control game master powers if they game masters arent logged into the game.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    WoD alpha is playable on Dreamhack, so this is teh likely explanation for this.

    Not really no. I usually disagree with all the moderators here (and I hate most of em too) but that infraction was well deserved, it's been said thousand of times that Vanilla servers are never going to happen, sure he was joking because of all the "Half Life 3 Confirmed" crap but it's not funny so just a waste of post.

    google "gm island" to see why you are incorrect. they used to have be in your server to communicate or help you, but you still couldnt see them with /who even then.

    but now they have an interface that does not need to be in-game or in any realm to use.
    i say a lot of things.
    some of them may be sarcastic, rude, or insulting.
    but if you read carefully, i dont aim to insult people, and very rarely trolling ~ its my honest opinion. if you think im talking about you, go get some coffee and read it again later.
    have a nice day.

    Well when you keep seeing. "Half Life 3 confirmed" and people using similar phrases instead of actually posting. I'm not surprised.

    This also might be a visual bug; although an interesting one. Whenever the instance servers are down the max level players can queue for low level dungeons but it won't go through. You can also see instances that aren't available to players in that list when instance servers are down (for restarts/maintenance/etc). This might be that going on.
    That's a huge red flag for me. I think this might be a private server.

    If not, then it's PTR. Because Live does NOT have version flags next to their servers. Never.

    If this is PTR client, then maybe they're prepping for WoD Beta?
