World of Warplanes 2.0 Tomorrow

The World of Warplanes website has details on a new version 2.0 update coming tomorrow to Wargaming's multiplayer aerial combat game. There will be downtime tomorrow to install this, and they expect this to take off at around 10:00 am EDT. They also note that they will offer some progression boosts between the launch of this update and the release of version 2.0.1 early next month. Here's the overview of what's new:

World of Warplanes 2.0 drops you right into the action with this massive update combining fierce 20th-century aerial battles with tactical teamwork, all for territorial control.

A new mode lets you respawn if shot down, and where victory depends on your teamís ability to capture and hold key territories on the battlefield below. Each territory has its own function and defenses, creating dynamic new air battles. Also you can fly a new class of Bombers!

Amazes me that Blizzard doesn't go after them for that name. I remember when LucasArts went after Remedy for a logo that looked too similar to theirs.

You can't copyright the world.

No, but they try anyway. Like when Intel wanted to copyright the number '586' and got shot down, they went with Pentium instead. After a while these corps think they can do anything. The money literally goes to their head.

Not that I support their efforts in the least, but I kinda get why they try that shit on (and why it makes them awful cunts). The money invested trying to corner trademarks on such generic terms compared to what they would gain if they pulled it off is chickenfeed to them.

Or when Microsoft tried to trademark Active and was forced to go with ActiveX.
