    I think this is a good thing. Sure Blizzard is notorious for missing ship dates but they also have a perfect record for making top notch kick ass games that are worth the wait. Would you like War3 to perform like Tropico? I thought not... :cool:

    We will see on that one. I think that they learned a lot from the D2 beta where they grossly misjudged the amount of people that would be playing. I think that they will have a better grasp on the situation this time. At least I hope that is the case.

    that's what is going to be sweet about WoW. it charges a monthly fee so bliz will have lots of money to keep their WoW servers beefed.

    If WoW is good enough then it'll have the potential to suck other mmorpg players away from the other games. Better graphics, by far.

    Just curious... how would one get to test games? I've always wondered? When is WoW supposed to be released?!

    no official ETA on WoW... though i have heard anywhere from 1-2 years from now.

    you have to sign up for beta testing on blizzard's web site during their signup period. the Warcraft 3 beta signups are already over.

    Cool. How long does the sign up period last? Are we talkin' days or hours?
    I figured it would be over by now, but for future reference:)
