Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures released the first picture of 2016's World of Warcraft movie May 18.

The picture is of an orc named Orgrim. It looks a whole lot like an orc from World of Warcraft. So, well done, people of Industrial Light and Magic who are handling the effects.

There has so far been little word what it will entail or how the accomplished Jones will manage to squeeze 11 years of continual video gameplay into a story that will please it's millions and millions of paid subscribers. 

In actuality, Ogrim is played by Pacific Rim's Robert Kazinsky. Or this normal-shaped man here:

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!

As part of the upcoming Warlords of Draenor pre-patch (6.0.2), WoW is removing the names of any characters that have not logged into the game since November 13, 2008. If you're trying to preserve any sweet character names you've been hoarding, make sure you've logged in to each character you need to retain the name of.

An NPC named Robin has been found. WoWhead, asite that scours the game code for new additions, picked up three instances of the tribute in a recent update for the Warlords of Draenor beta build - a male human, a female human, and a blue genie.

This model has been used before as a boss in a dungeon, but the idea is that this version of the model will most likely transform into other Robin Williams' characters.
