    Important - Adobe Flash Player Vulnerability

    Get an Authenticator if you haven't got one already. Get your very own guard dog and secure your account at the same time. Visit http://us.battle.net/security for more info!

    I would also like to add that this is NOT a virus. The only way to protect yourself from this kind of vulnerability is to keep your system up-to-date in all ways, including Flash.
    Curse Client Google Ad Scam
    A few months ago a couple of people got hacked because of malicious google ads redirecting to fake armory pages. (See this news)

    The same problem is now affecting the Curse.com client that many of you use to update and download addon.


    Whenever you try to reach a popular WoW site (including mmo-champion) always type the URL in your browser's adress bar or bookmark it, don't click links from external websites or google them.

    So I'm guessing no competition for Europe? Seeing as Blizz always favor US testers over EU testers. Then again, giving one to Korea and not to Europe seems a bit... strange... Who knows.

    Also, I wonder if they're planning to let all 5000 testers from this competition onto the realms at the same time as all the others picked from the opt-ins, friends & family etc... My theory is that they'll be siphoning them in batch by batch to prevent massive server load.

    How so? Boub put it on here about 20 minutes after the Bluepost was done

    Looking at the rules... it looks like the only valid submissions are from the guild GMs right?

    Wait, and a residence of the US? It's a digital contest ><

    Guess I should give someone else GM for 5 weeks huh

    Edit: Checking the eligibility and only a few states are locked out, it says nothing about not being allowed to enter as a Canadian citizen

    It's a contest ending in July, no hurry. There is absolutely no reason for me to not finish the very important stuff I was working on before posting.

    Europe left out again -_-'

    So typical Blizzard, the US always get the good stuff, and we have to do with the left overs.

    Like BlizzCon, also US only
