WoW 25% discount on faction change

Via WoW Insider, the faction change cost is reduced by 25%. Huh? The purpose for this offer amid the total end of an expansion? Fark. Offer the same deal when MoP goes live and they’ll likely make far more money.
Faction change sale 25% off through the weekend

From WoWInsider:

Have you been wondering what life is like on the other side of the faction fence? Blizzard has offered faction changes for quite some time now, allowing players to flip factions at their whim. This weekend, Blizzard’s holding a sale offering 25% off faction changes. Please note that a faction change isn’t a realm change — it’s just switching from Alliance to Horde on your current realm.

However, this change does make things quite handy for cross-faction trading, plus it opens up a whole new side of questing and exploration to do. Before you jump to make the move, however, you may want to check out Blizzard’s FAQ on the faction change service and give it a read. There are a few things that switch over when you change factions, like mounts and titles, and a few things that are wiped out all together, like Argent Tournament achievements.

Right. So people are so in need of misc wow stuff that they will faction change a toon? More money than sense. Far more. Note to those people – hey give it away to charity.

Probably too grumpy with that last part. Grrrrr.

Does 300 more MoP beta keyss mean launch soon?

Blizzard LogoMMO Champion are throwing around 300 more beta keys, and given the amount of keys already out there, plus the annual pass millions – I’d say they are getting bloody close to closing the beta and giving a release date.

So does 300×3 more MoP beta key mean we’re getting a launch date soon?

I think so, but I have no evidence at all. My fervor is directly proportional to my desire to see the date. It cannot be so long now. ComicCon can end without an announcement date, but if not soon then I think Blizzard are really stretching time.

Does anyone who wants a key not already have one?

GoT 7 Kingdoms screenie

A GoT – Seven Kingdoms teaser video via Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Well the still screens look good, the video look average, and I’m very worried that this is a flash in the pan.

As soon as my plans come to fruition, I'll finally /sit on the Iron Throne.

“… to Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms – which promised an MMO in which “players form alliances through Player vs. Player (PvP), Siege combat, and politics to control Westeros” – Bigpoint vanished into the seat-and-BO-flavored mists of Comic-Con. And from that primordial ooze of glorious geekery, it’s now produced one trailer. It features betrayal, war, power, and GIANT WORDS introducing each.”
