+ - World of Warcraft expansion details leaked.

Submitted by JavaLord
JavaLord (680960) writes "The new expansion to World of Warcraft titled "Wrath of the Lich King" recently went into friends and family alpha testing. Some of the first screenshots, along with notes on new spells have been leaked on the world of warcraft forums and other websites only to be pulled down. As usual, the internet routes around censorship, and the low down on Wrath of the Lich King can be found here"

+ - World of Warcraft - Exploiting Arenas for Profit!->

Submitted by JavaLord
JavaLord (680960) writes "Gameriot has an interview up with a college kid who goes by the name 'Holyfusion' who makes $600 dollars a week by selling his services in the World of Warcraft arena. What's his secret? Blizzards poorly designed arena system allows the buying and selling of teams at any time. The teams are rated on an ELO system. The player gets points at the end of the week which can be used to buy powerful items. Holyfusion levels up many teams a week, then sells them to other players for either direct paypal payments, or gold which he then resells to websites who specialize in MMO currency sales.

Meanwhile, the design of the arena system in World of Warcraft has caused havoc for less skilled players, who often run into the best players in the game in the lower brackets, because the best players spend all their time re-leveling teams to sell."
