The Current Crisis in the World of Warcraft

Regardless of how you personally feel about World of Warcraft, it remains one of the most popular games, ever. With this sort of popularity, you can expect nothing less than unbridled passion from its gaming legions. That being said, the World of Warcraft forums are literally exploding. The gaming community is up in arms, and nothing short of blood will keep them from “fixing” the game.

So what is new in this World of Warcraft? Is a new patch coming out? Are the newest raid bosses claiming the lives of countless players? What has gotten the World of Warcraft community in such an uproar? Here, I’ll show you:


That’s it. The Orc race has been re-fitted with significantly smaller shoulder pads. For a race known for its enormous spike-laden shoulder garments, the Orcs have been reduced to the equivalent of an NFL punter’s shoulder protection.

I realize this current “game changing catastrophe” may mean nothing to you. It definitely means everything to some. Thankfully, Blizzard has recently acknowledged the issue, and they confirmed that a fix is in the works. After the fix, World of Warcraft players can get back to what they do best. Which isâ$¦ uhmâ$¦ complaining about World of Warcraft.
