Blizzard has done it once again. Earlier this afternoon, Blizzard revealed the latest World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor for the crowds at BlizzCon. The new expansion raises the level cap to 100 and seeks to send players on a journey through the homelands of both Orcs and Draenei. This should be an excellent buffer against slowly-declining subscription numbers and will likely be more well-received than Mists of Pandaria.
Blizzard fans, hold on to your hats – while you're running to grab your seat, that is. The BlizzCon 2013 Opening Ceremony begins today at 11:00am PT (2:00pm ET). If you're not attending BlizzCon and don't have a Virtual Ticket, you can still view the ceremony as well as all of the Starcraft II, World of Warcraft and Hearthstone eSports action for free on the BlizzCon livestream page. Tournaments will run throughout the day, so be sure to check the convention schedule in order to catch your favorite teams and players compete.

Losing a long-term guildie in World of Warcraft (or indeed any MMO) can be difficult to deal with. The player might have left the guild for another, further progressed, guild, or they may have left the game completely. Either way, it can be a struggle for those left behind, and in a game as old as WoW, I’m sure it’s happened to all of us at some point.
