Teen Arrested For Suicide Remarks To WoW GM

The EndSights reports a teen was arrested on Monday after making suicidal remarks to a World of Warcraft GM in order to obtain virtual items for his character.  The GM immediately contacted 911 in good faith to offer assistance to the player. Shortly, paramedics and the Middletown police arrived to the home where the teen told the officers he was joking. The teen was taken under custody and charged with a first-degree misdemeanor for the stunt. For this matter, we advice fans to be careful with their jokes when contacting a GM after opening a ticket. The GM will call your bluff and contact the authorities to protect you.

Chinese Wrath of the Lich King Leak Under Investigation

JLM Pacificreported there was a leak of the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King with a Chinese interface that allowed players to join North American servers. Links to said file were since removed. The9 and Blizzard Entertainment are investigating this incident.

Chinese players will need to be patient in the meantime to play the expansion. During the expansion’s midnight launch in New York, Frank Pearce told Wolrdofwar.net the following:

Blizzard Quote:
We are still going through the process of iterating on that, working with the different government authorities responsible for that, so we don

Singer Jose Jose Needs Your Help

This has nothing to do with Blizzard games. And I rarely post stuff like this. Except that one time when fifteen fans helped me cost some extra expenses for the trip to Paris, which I thank a lot.

Those who didn’t know, I am latino. I was born in New York, but risen up in Puerto Rico. You may have noticed my horrible grammar by now. Humor aside, those who know of Spanish (Latino) Music industry know perfectly who Jose Jose is. He is dubbed the “Principe de la Cancion” (The Prince of the Song). The voice of Latinoamerica. He was known to have been into alcohol and even drugs for years, reaching rock bottom. There was one person in his life that helped him get back on tracks with a rehab, like a miracle, and changed him for the best … a fan who sheltered him and looked after him throughout his rehab. The fan who would later become … his wife. Sara Salazar was an angel to him. They have been married 15 years and blessed with a daughter.

Sara had a brain stroke nearly a month ago, and is kept in an induced coma to help her brain’s swelling to attempt to save her. The singer is requesting producers for job opportunities to cost the hospital and her treatment. If you are into TV shows, Magazines, Publishing, or hire singers for special shows or concerts feel free to contact him. He is willing to work. However, News reporters who are fans of him suggested to put pride aside, and to open a bank account so that his fans may help out.

Fans of Jose Jose can also call the Regions Bank: 1-800-734-4667 and specify that you wish to donate to Ms. Sara Salazar. The Bank will inform you how to make a deposit on behalf of Sara Salazar. Those who know legendary singer Jose Jose know how important his wife is to him, and to all of his fans for turning around his life for the best. A great model for those who have fallen, demonstrating you can get better and have hope. More details at Univision.

One of the best songs the singer is known for since the 70s is The Sad (El Triste)—sang at the Festival of Singing in 1970. The emotion and strength in his voice in this song made many cry in excitement. Watch YoutTube below:

I added the lyrics below. And a bad and rough translation to english.

El Triste Lyrics

Spanish
Que triste fue decirnos adios
Cuando nos ador

Blizzplanet: The Sleeper Has Awaken

Alright, we are back online and kicking. Apologies for the downtime. Rushster, wisely, decided to shut down the site until the situation could be assessed.  The old content management system (CMS) was compromised.  It didn’t come from an ad banner as some fans have speculated. The old left menu module had a vulnerability.

A few things will be added later on Tuesday: such as the content (Easter Eggs, Store, all games info, lore, etc.) and the news archive.

If you visited Blizzplanet on November 19-20th, I recommend you install Avast, update your anti-virus and/or install the latest Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Tool just in case. If you play World of Warcraft, use the WoW Launcher … it offers an extra protection. You can find it in this path within your hard drive:

C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe

Special thanks to Rushster for putting some extra hours out of his weekend to cast resurrect on Blizzplanet. And to Darknemesis for creating the old CMS that went unhacked for six years.
