It's been a little bit of time since out last news roundup, but we thought we'd throw some more news together for your reading pleasure... or displeasure, as some of the current news might illicit. First up: hacking Warcraft.
Account Security Warning
Unless you've been hiding under a rock or perhaps don't use the mobile features Blizzard has provided, you have surely heard by now that the mobile armory was somehow hacked. Many players have had large quantities of gold vanish from their characters, spent on worthless junk on the Auction House.
Thankfully the good folks at Blizzard were able to muddle through the issue and fix it, restoring access to the armory. There's likely still plenty of players out there who are awaiting restoration of items and gold. Blizzard stresses again the importance of having an Authenticator.
Visit the WoW theme park!
As if the talk about hacking hasn't already gotten a few feathers ruffled, there's another report about the World of Warcraft theme park in China. I mean, Blizz says it's WoW-themed, but I just don't know... China says it's called "Joyland". Surely they're telling the truth.
