The first World of Warcraft fansite to launch on the day the game was announced was WorldOfWar.net[1] when Rush and Elly opened the boards of the site. The site covered the development of the game from its original "MMO RTS" genre into the regular MMO RPG it is today. Pioneering content such as an extensive map section with all flightpaths of Azeroth for both Alliance and Horde, guides for professions and other parts of the gameplay together with making a User Interface Mod database, the site became the then biggest World of WarCraft fansite. Unfortunately around 2011 the site started having problems and became less and less reliable as a source of Warcraft info. Some time after February 2012, the site started redirecting to Diablo III info site diablo.incgamers.com.[2] That was pretty much the end of the site for Warcraft fans.

The site went through a few different layouts, similar in design to their other big sites (DiabloII.net and WarCraftIII.net), and for a few months it was moved into WoW.IncGamers.com before it received the layout it has today, sometime in early 2008. WoW.IncGamers.com is now redirecting to WorldofWar.net.

At times the site had extensive information on everything to do with World of Warcraft, including class guides, maps, news, forums, user blogs and more. It also had an extensive repository of addons, and a WoW Database. Although not the biggest or only source for WoW info, it was one of the cornerstones of the community.

WorldOfWar.net and RMT Edit

RMT (real money trading) or "goldselling" as it's more commonly known is something that the staff and most members at WorldOfWar.net strongly oppose, and even takes a firmer stance on it than Blizzard.[citation needed]

Notes Edit

  • Worldofwar.net redirects to worldofwar.incgamers.com, a World of Battleships (Warships)/World of Tanks/World of Warplanes fan site.
  • Wow.incgamers.com redirects to diablo.incgamers.com.
  • Worldofwar.com is not associated with IncGamers or WorldofWar.net in any way and is goldselling site.
  • Wowdigger appears to have had a much lower rate of data contribution than other popular DBs.[3]
