    WotLK Beta, Live and Tournament realms issues

    Beta site activated in Europe
    Remember yesterday's news about http://beta.worldofwarcraft.com/ being "activated" and showing a 403 "Forbidden" error instead of the usual "404" Page not found ? Well, it looks like things are moving fast because http://beta.wow-europe.com/ has been activated as well this morning ! It definitely looks like Blizzard is getting prepared for something.

    Arena tournament issues and plans
    A few posts have been made concerning various issues with the Arena Tournament and what's scheduled for it.

    Addons restrictions on Tournament Realm
    During the online phase of the tournament, there are no restrictions in regards to what add-ons players can use. For the live event, there are restrictions in place limiting players to the default UI and custom macros. (Source)

    Arena Tournament realm on the Armory site
    It is not currently on the Armory, but we do plan on adding it. Currently the Arena Tournament is in the practice phase, but once we are a little ways into the actual qualifiers you can expect the data you see on regular realms (characters, teams, ladders, etc.) to show up on the Armory.

    Posting on forums as your Arena Tournament character
    It's not currently possible to post using your arena character. We are looking into various posting options for arena tournement players for the future, however. (Source)

    Live servers bugs
    A few more blue posts concerning bugs affecting live realms.

    We are aware of this issue and are working to resolve it. (Source)

    Guild Banks Withdrawals count not resetting
    Our DBAs are actively working to resolve this issue. The initial cause seems to have been resolved but as this is still affecting some players it is still being investigated. Please continue to report this problem via In-game GM reports. I'd suggest putting in a petition each day that the bank limit has not been reset for your guild. Be sure to submit your reports with the character's being affected so that our DBAs can correlate the data. (Source)

    Actually, I never talked about this but a few days ago Blizzard announced in a press release that they were preparing World of Warcraft for release in Latin America. The latin american version of the game will be heavily based on the european spanish one but with re-recorded in-game speech.

This new version of the game will be rolled out in select markets throughout Latin America starting in the first half of 2008 and will also be available to Spanish-speaking players in the US and Canada at that time.

    A dedicated Spanish-speaking team is being assembled at the Blizzard Entertainment offices in Irvine, California and Austin, Texas to ensure that Spanish-speaking World of Warcraft players based in North and South America will receive high-quality 24/7 support in Spanish. Positions are currently open on the company's customer service, quality assurance, community relations, and web teams, and a new official website for the game's North and South America-based Spanish-speaking players is in development.

    Cake or pie ?
    Cake, definitely. This one was posted on the official forums and looks very nice.

    its hard to beleive blizzard managed to keep a alpha actually quiet for once. It annoys me that blizzcon attendees still have yet to hear whether we got sc2 beta or wotlk beta, id be happy with either (and so would my friends)

    I just hope the thing they are planning is the release of beta information saying that its not availible but the website will eventually set it up.

    Well, Beta isn't coming...

    They probably opened the Copy/Account Acctivation for internal Alpha testing, so we have at least 3-5 Months till Beta o.O

    No you are wrong they use the beta link for Alpha also.

    If the alpha was occurring we would know and there would be sandbox servers of it running by now. While Blizzard wishes all its F&F testers kept quiet some do not.

    Now it is reasonable that they would want the alpha starting soon to have the beta maybe start with the WWI at the end of June.
