10 Million WoW Clients Need Patching

A new patch is now available for World of Warcraft, coincidental with this Blizzard Press Release announcing that World of Warcraft now has 10 million active subscribers worldwide. As there are always quibbles about what that means, here's their definition: "World of Warcraft subscribers include individuals who have paid a subscription fee or have an active prepaid card to play World of Warcraft, as well as those who have purchased the game and are within their free month of access. Internet Game Room players who have accessed the game over the last thirty days are also counted as subscribers. The above definition excludes all players under free promotional subscriptions, expired or cancelled subscriptions, and expired prepaid cards. Subscribers in licensees' territories are defined along the same rules." As for the patch, a new version 2.3.3 update is now available, though the Current Patch WoW Notes list the current version as 2.3.2 and the 2.3.3 patch notes are on the test realm page, so this new version may not actually be live yet. Downloads of the US/Aus manual version 2.3.3 client patch are available from ActionTrip, AtomicGamer, FanGaming, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, Games32, The Patches Scrolls, and Strategy Informer. Various other language editions of the patch are on ActionTrip, AtomicGamer, Gamer's Hell, Games32, and The Patches Scrolls. I hope it goes without saying that you should probably not patch your client until you are sure your server is running the new version.

sure Mr Tact, but a maturity test is impossible to actually implement whereas an age check is at least feasible. And it would be strictly voluntary to use that server. The age check is not a perfect cure-all but it WOULD go a long way to keep the 10 years olds off of one select server where folks dont want to deal with kids.
