Some folks might find this funny, but as a fellow gamer (I don’t have WoW) this isn’t funny at so many different levels.
A mass slaughter of World of Warcraft players has devastated the popular online roleplaying game.
Hackers were somehow able to gain control of the game and kill characters at will.
Normally players of WoW are unable to kill each other unless they each agree to a dual, but the hackers worked out how to override those protections.
The slaughter saw entire cities wiped out across Azeroth—the world of, well, Warcraft. The populations of Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Tarren Mill, Ragnaros, Draenor and Twisting Nether were put to the hackers’ sword.
It is believed that the makers of WoW, Blizzard Activision, will be able to repair the damage, and they better be able to, or hell with break loose.
