    You know what I just noticed? WoWhead blocked my Chrome extension for uBlock Origin that stops specifically WoWhead's ads and unlimited refreshes. Looks like they REALLY are trying to stay on top of ad blockers.. lul

    Pretty sure Wowhead had one the week before was about a day before MMOC did their first one.

    Seriously, fuck those people.

    Them and Twitch are the sole reason why I have adblock.

    But adblock/ublock origin doesn't stop the unlimited refreshes Wowhead does by themselves.

    They can copy all they want in my book since mmochamp decided wowdb was a good idea and deprives us of proper links forcing us to go through that trash before arriving at the actually useful wowhead page.

    And then your browser crashes when wowhead ads fuck up your system.

    I know they need ads for revenue, but if they weren't miserable to load, I wouldn't be trying to block them.

    What's this talk about unlimited refreshes and wowhead crashing your browsers? What shitty browsers are you guys using? I have no adds and there are no unlimited refreshes. Neither on firefox nor on chrome.

    That website is horrible... I think they went for the most annoying visitor experience record or something.
    I believe that people make their own luck by great preparation and good strategy!

    Given the amount of nazis on this site, and that one guy who made that idiotic Goku beats Superman post people still use to "counter" Death Battle to this day, I am 100% opposed to anything copying MMO-C.
    Don't @ me.

    But didn't #gamergate teach us that all gamers are misogynist nazis?

    Wowhead is still alive because the comments section is just pure gold.

    If someone makes a script and manages to extract all the comments and the items/quest that the comments are tied to, that would be great but i dont know if the comments would count as wowhead's property at that point.
