    Indeed. Almost all servers now appear on the realm list, but they're going up and down like crazy, and you'll be lucky to log in. Which, let's face it, is normal for patch day.

    blizzcon dinner is a scam first they let you win a change to get the tickets then you need to buy them for 500 bucks that got to children

    if blizzard wants to make an impression the use the 100.000 dollar (500$ x 200 tickets) to buy those children a pc with wow installed on it

    Ok, personally, I could care less (yes that is the correct useage, look it up) about who gets the first world kills, but I have to LAUGH OUT LOUD at Blizzard for their futile failure of an attempt to release the dungeon at the same time everywhere and then do it while half the world's servers are down. OLOLOLOLOL

    I'm sorry, and I'm not one of those guys that constantly finds stupid things to criticize Blizzard about (how dare u give hunters MS you ruined eeeeverything I'm quitting if you dont change it back I swear), but this is just hilarious epic fail.

    I'd say that as long as people keep saying "Yay for US worlds first" people will keep pointing out that the US got the kill about 10 hours before the EU servers even got up. If world firsts are important, servers being down is as well.

    Overall I don't think Halion is that big of a deal.

    This fight is not pug friendly... at all. The mini-bosses aren't even pug friendly. Don't think Marrowgar, think Putricide and Sindragosa with no ICC buffs.

    yeah totally right Rukh

    ill get my first kill when i am ready wich i am not with a Gearscore of 4700

    It's "I couldn't care less", not "I could care less".

    A moment's logical thought would make you see why the former makes more sense than the latter.

    Another possibility here is to ignore world firsts, USA vs. EU, etc., and raid RS when it comes up and enjoy the game. If it's not enjoyable, don't play.

    As someone else said, that ISN'T the correct usage. If you say "I could care less", then you obviously care to some degree. If you say "I couldn't care less", then you are to the point of where you absolutely do not care. Fail less, good sir.

    Just because it was like that for 2 previous instances doesn't mean it's going to be like that for every instance. Nobody cares about who gets a 12-hour headstart on killing one NPC.
