There is a FiringSquad forum thread about the most devious missions ever in a game.

Others and I will be posting stories, screen shots, news, etc. so please bookmark this AQFL story! It will be like the stress test back in the beginning of September 2004. Be warned that this game is like a drug. You can't stop playing. ;)
Arimus and I are playing on test #8 server (Pacific Zone). Others will be joining this server to play together. So, please go there. We are elves so stay with Alliance group please if you want to be in the group as buddies! Here are the statistics for my current BuddyAnt character (Wowreader -- outdated). Everyone should run Wowreader OR Cosmoui.org with Thotbot, and upload their character statistics (registration required) so everyone can see. Please remember to take screen shots and share! Any funny, cool, etc. shots should be submitted to Blizzard like mine.

11/8/2004 6:13 PM PST: www.worldofwarcraft.com has the downloaders. If you already started downloading the client earlier, you can use the new v1.1 client to resume! New keys are not out yet at the moment. Stay tuned...
11/8/2004 8:29 PM PST: Sign Up is back! The cool part is you don't need to an unique key. The page says to use "BLIZRD-BETA-ONLINE-OPEN-PUBLIC". I guess the guys gave up. Space is limited for open beta so go now! ;)
11/10/2004 1:10 PM PST: Open beta sign up is closed.
11/11/2004 3:40 AM PST: Cosmos UI rocks if you wish to add buttons, change stuff, etc. It makes the game a lot funner! Ulic and Ant approve! Get the latest version (even if it is alpha).
11/17/2004 3:22 PM PST: Read the patch's changelog for the game. The patch came out.
11/17/2004 7:00 PM PST: Open beta ends tomorrow! See its Web site for details. :(

Mousey gave me this funny cartoon so I decided to post it. I really do suck in multiplayer games. :(
