    Patch 4.2.2 Release Build, Setup of the Month, MMO Report, The Daily Blink

    Moderator Recruitment Notice - We will probably open moderator recruitment this week, if you want to apply you might want to start thinking about it.

    Patch 4.2.2 - Build 14534 (Release)
    The latest build deployed on Patch 4.2.2 PTRs is a release candidate, which means that Blizzard is now done with that bugfix patch and it will be deployed on live realms soon, but not necessarily this week.

    This patch doesn't really have anything interesting for players, it's mostly a bug fixes patch with a way to consolidate most of the Patch 4.2 hotfixes into the game files to display them properly in game.




    It also means that the next step after that will be Patch 4.3 on PTRs, hurray!


    Computers - Setup of the Month (by chaud)
    Each month or every 2 months, depending on the hardware evolutions, the lovely chaud will work on a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

    This month
    New SSDs are here and are finally priced reasonably. The Intel 320 8MB bug has a firmware fix coming soon and should be a decent choice once again. Now is a good time to buy, as the next generation is a good while away and the current prices are reasonable. New AMD CPUs will be here in September or October at the earliest, no solid confirmed information on them so far. The supply of 6970s seems to have dried up, so you may be waiting a few weeks if you want to purchase one.

    Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

    Don't hesitate to post any feedback in the comments of that news post, and don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions!

    Yay even more mods to close topics because of massive trolling and user who only want do disturb other people because they "have not anything else in their life".

    Don't make stupid threads that deviate from the established rules and mods won't close them.
