Blizzard CEO today has stated that he has just signed over all rights to the mega-popular "World of Warcraft" mmorpg. The new owners will be Limitless Horizons Inc, previous makers of the disappointing "Mourning" franchise. Limitless Horizons CEO is extremely excited about the deal, stating that he plans to immediately take down all World of Warcraft servers the first week of June to change the game engine to incorporate previous Mourning game code that will give World of Warcraft characters a new bloodline. After playing for 500 hours, or reaching a random level between 45 and 65 (the max level) the character will DIE, and a newborn character will be born with 50-60% of the dead characters skills and traits.
Limitless Horizons is more then excited to take over the World of Warcraft servers and franchise. They are also excited to finally have the chance to incorporate their new "bloodline" feature that was previously promised for Mourning.
Because of the new coding and changes to the game engine, World of Warcraft will be down for about a month and will reopen on July 1. They will take pre-orders for the new game that all players must buy and download to play. They will give all current players with current subscriptions when they take the client down a 40% discount to $29.95. All other WoW players will need to purchase the new client from Limitless Horizons for $49.95.
Limitless Horizons David Jasinski also says that he is more then excited and knows that the fans will be as well that the current name of the game will be permanently changed to "World Of Mourning" effective July 1, 2006. He states that "warcraft" is a bad word for the title of any mmorpg, and it will be much more of a household name as "World of Mourning" because most people associate the word "warcraft" with the devil and evil. Now he expects the name change alone to result in about a 20-30% increase in the current subscriber base of just over 6.5 million subscribers.
Blizzard now says that they will take the money profited from WoW and start making Twinkies after buying the rights to Twinkies from Hostess. They said they were previously making Twinkies out of every person that sat in front of their computer playing WoW for hours upon hours every day and now they will just being making the twinkies more directly instead of so indirectly as they were before.
