Hacker Attack Results in Thousands of Player and Non-Player Character 'Deaths' in World of Warcraft

Maximum PC: Throughout history, wars and plagues have wiped out entire cities and civilizations, leaving behind nothing but corpses and tears. Strangely enough, the same thing happened yesterday in World of Warcraft when hackers took advantage of an exploit that allowed them to march through various realms, destroying every character they came across, even non-player characters (NPCs). (Blizzard, PC, World of Warcraft)

People still play WOW?

Over 9 million people still subscribed to WoW before the expansion came out, so I would assume those numbers are now higher. WoW was also said to be about 30% of Activision Blizzards profit in the second (maybe first) quarter of this year.

The Kung Fu Panda expansion? :P

Joking aside, even my WoW friends didn't seem too interested in it and didn't jump back in.

Sadly, yes. My brother ONLY plays it. It's like a sickness. Won't even touch any great games I try getting him into (Bioshock, Borderlands 2, Uncharted...etc.)

As far as MMO's go, it doesn't even look that good compared to many others. Puzzles me TBH. AND it's expensive.
