    Tough luck.

    Who would even be interested in 6.000.000+ players still waiting for their WotLK stuff ?

    Certainly not mmorpg.com. Such a trivial amount of people isn't worthwhile to talk about in here.

    let's talk about the 6 K Darkfall and the 600 (!) yearly votes that voted LotrO as best game on mmorpg.com.

    Trivial..?????????

     

    I think all players thoughout the globe all tegether are absolutely less than Chinese Gamers

    Belymerio I think you need to adjust the settings on your sarcasm monitor.  Unless your being too sarcastic too then i need to adjust the settings on my sarcasm monitor.

    He's being sarcastic. He's also wrong. Websites like this don't maintain a 24/7 watch on news services so they tend to lag a bit behing the first announcemet. Add in that the target audience here isn't Chinese and you can see why they didn't get the word out sooner. I hope this works out for ActiBlizz so my stock goes up again.

    It is said that the stock went down at over 15%, I am not sure. Anyways, the victims are gamers

    I posted this rumor yesterday in the WOW forums before it was official
