Wrath of the Lich King - Alpha starting
Two days ago I wrote a few lines concerning the first phase of alpha testing for WotLK. During the last few days it's been confirmed by a few other sources and sites and we can assume it will be starting very soon, however there are a few very important point of details you've got to keep in mind :
- The alpha isn't public, it's mostly restricted to Blizzard employees and a few other people but if you're a normal player you won't be able to enter it.
- People participating in the alpha testing have accepted a strict NDA and aren't allowed to post even a single screenshot from the expansion.
- Any email or site asking you to sign up for the beta is a scam, the only goal is to steal your account.
Blizzard will make tons of announcement when the first phase of public testing will start, and won't send any mail before that.

It's why when it comes time for a beta, we will remind everyone (sometimes to the point of annoyance) to please please please update your contact information and email. There were many people that never got an invitation because they had a bad email.[/blizzquote"]
In short, the first phase of beta testing started, it doesn't mean we'll get new information about the expansion anytime soon, and if you were a part of alpha test phase you'd already have your account by now. As soon as you get a chance to enter the beta Blizzard will make sure that you know about it before sending anything in your mail.
Twin Eredars 2nd world kill by SK-Gaming
Yesterday at 10:00PM CEST (and 4 hours after Nihilum, see this post), SK-Gaming got the second first kill of the Eredar Twins, 4th boss of the Sunwell Plateau. The competition for the US first kill is still open and we'll probably write something about it when it happens, stay tuned.
