April Fools

Postby AaronOfMpls » Thu Apr 01, 2010 9:53 am

Some WoW April Fools:

o The official site has some April 1 news items: Battle.net has a new matchmaking service, WoW is getting a new equipment ranking system, and there's a Battle.net neural interface in the Blizzard Store.

o Wowhead's logo has been temprarily modified to reflect a new item found in the game files.

o WoWWiki's images, menus, and tooltips are upside down.

WoW.com's switching what they cover with every post. One was on Mass Effect 2, one was on John McCain's favorite pizza toppings, one was on Twilight (ew), and one was on Muscle March.

I'm dead serious.

If you were quick with armory (or had a crappy internet) you would notice... an interesting middle-of-the-background before the armory frame actually appeared. Since I had the latter, I was able to capture this...

He he he... :) I saw the tuskarr thing after reading WoWWiki's 2010 April Fools page, but I missed the background image (one of the panes in front of it loaded too fast).

As of this post, WoW.com is back to its old self with a normal Breakfast Topic, WoWWiki has reverted to normal, and Wowhead has switched to a (normal) Noblegarden theme, but the Armory is still April Fooled.

EDIT: Wow.com now has a list of WoW April Fools.

got a few screenshots of my toons during that...
can't seem to link images, never done it on these posts and I may be doing it wrong, as all I get is code when I'm done.

I hate to tell you this, but April was 3 months ago.
