Puncraft: Reserve your WoW Classic puns ahead of launch

Hello! Gera here. I have been given the keys to RPS HQ while Alice takes her usual evening sabbatical into the Rock Paper Sensory Deprivation tank where she goes to ruminate on the day's news. In the meantime I am using my newfound power like anybody would, which is by making many tiny yet still perceptible changes to the RPS homepage. Hey, nice vertical border.…

Black, White And Free All Over: Mists Of Pandaria

Preparations for the Warlords of Draenor expansion to World of Warcraft continues. Yesterday brought The Iron Tide, the traditional pre-expansion patch with all its many changes. Now Blizzard have done the other now-traditional thing and folded the last expansion's content into the base World of Warcraft game. That means subscribers who never bought Mists of Pandaria no longer need to, as its landmass and quests…

World Of Warcraft Player Reaches 90 Without Picking A Side

In case you'd forgotten, MMO players are crazy. I know: I used to be one. This, though, is a whole new level of dedication to a mind-numbingly repetitive task. A World of Warcraft player named "Doubleagent" (get it?) rolled a Pandaren character and¬†never left the neutral starting zone. Somehow, though, they found a way to hit WoW's current level cap of 90. And by somehow,…

Pandaria’s First Big Patch Brings War Back To Warcraft

As a child, one of my first Real Person (read: PC) games was Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. Back in those days, the Horde and Alliance, well, they didn't like each other so much. There was, I suppose you could say, a whole lot less crafting and a rather sizable helping of war. But times have changed, and so has the world of Warcraft. For…

A Gryphon’s-Eye View of Mists of Pandaria

We know World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria has kung-fun pandas in it. I've seen it on adverts on the telly and everything. What else does it have in it? Well, if you've got seven minutes you can find out, with the below flyover trailer that runs through some of the new zones, enemies, abilities and dungeons to be found in WoW's fourth expansion. It's…

Good News Bears: WoW’s Pandaren To Be Playable By All

Want to have a panda of your very own without any of the typical muss, fuss, or mists traditionally associated with exotic cow-colored bear ownership? Well, you have two options: 1) foist responsibility onto someone else every time it needs anything other than a warm, fluffy hug or 2) play World of Warcraft. I, of course, prefer the first option, but WoW's offering isn't half-bad…

Pandaring To The Crowds: Mists Of Pandaria’s Intro

Blizzard have spent thirteenty-billion dollars on an opening cinematic for their forthcoming Mists Of Pandaria expansion, so I suppose it's only fair that we all watch it. Then go, "Huh." And then think, "Wouldn't it be great if the game looked like that?" And then go back to picking our nails.

WOW Loses 1.1m Subs In One Quarter, Blames Diablo

World of Warcraft had 10.2 million subscribers in February and now it has 9.1 million. Blizzard have been quick to point out that their ageing behemoth is still the most popular subscription MMO in existence and also to reiterate the cyclical nature of peak subscriptions. They fell before Cataclysm and the fall before Pandaria was expected. It makes sense that people would drop out when…

WoW’s Mists Of Pandaria Out 25th September

World Of Warcraft's surelyitreallycan'tbereal update, Mists Of Pandaria - the April Fool's joke writ large - has a release date at long last. It'll be in the shops (shops?) on the 25th September. It's going to cost a bloody enormous ¬£30 in a box, but of course the digital version, not requiring a significant cut go to the store, price of packaging, shipping, etc, will…
