New York, October 2, 2006 -- There's trouble in the online gaming world when the actions of a renegade player threaten to destroy Blizzard Entertainment's(R) award-winning game World of Warcraft(R).

They actually SPONSORED this episode? All I've seen so far is the kids having gained 100+lbs each and severe cases of acne whilst zoned out in front of their computers.

"Smart" move, Blizzard. Heh.


yeah, it seemed a little odd of blizzard to make so much fun of their fans, but hopefully people will have a sense of humor.

i presume they sponsored it- it had full in game graphics and the Blizzard logo in huge type every five minutes! i think the south park people must be WoW addicts...
