The free DLC expansion that's "MMO simulation so good you'll think it's real" will be released on Steam on November 20, 2014. In an effort to perfectly simulate an MMO, the expansion includes five classes: warrior, rouge(?), magician, hunter, and microwave(???).

Best case scenario: "Heart of Thorns" is the title of an upcoming Guild Wars 2 expansion to be announced next week at PAX South.

Worst case scenario: "Heart of Thorns" is the name of the next season of the living world content for Guild Wars 2.

Either way, something is coming.  Guild Wars 2's publisher, NCSOFT, has registered a new trademark for the name "Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns" with the accompanying logo above.  ArenaNet has a panel scheduled at PAX South that promises a sneak peek at what's next for the game.  If you're a fan, it's time to board the hype train.

After seven years in development, project Titan has been canceled, Polygon confirms. Blizzard's CEO told Polygon, "We didn't find the fun,we didn't find the passion. We talked about how we put it through a reevaluation period, and actually, what we reevaluated is whether that's the game we really wanted to be making. The answer is no."


It sounds like Titan rose out of a desire to recreate the success of WoW and it just wasn't happening. Blizzard doesn't want to be identified as "the MMORPG company," and though they "wouldn't say no to ever doing an MMO again... that's not where we want to be spending our time."



Are you sad to see Titan go? Were you looking forward to the MMO? Did you even know it existed?

Blizzard has placed a six month ban on over 100,000 players for using automated bots in World of Warcraft.  Many of those users emplyed bots like HonorBuddy, which gathers honor in PvP for you without actually engaging in combat.

A message from community management states,

We’ve recently taken action against a large number of World of Warcraft accounts that were found to be using third-party programs that automate gameplay, known as “bots.” We’re committed to providing an equal and fair playing field for everyone in World of Warcraft, and will continue to take action against those found in violation of our Terms of Use. Cheating of any form will not be tolerated.


Further clarification from a community manager adds that the issue is not just with movement, but any automated action:



Play fair out there, everyone!
