Blizzard announced proudly to launch World of Warcraft Open Beta very soon. Although not all expected features may be included in the commercial version, Blizzard promises to keep working on their past announced features and to keep adding content. Open Beta will start in USA in a few weeks or days. There is no date specified, but knowing Blizzard’s past experiences, they do not make such announcements unless they are convinced they are ready. Blizzard cares to not make the same mistakes of the past when giving deadlines. The past months, concerning World of Warcraft, has been hectic when giving out dates; but when something is announced it doesn’t take long before the announcement is carried out. Expect an open beta sooner than you may think:
“We are happy to announce that we will soon be accepting applicants for the World of Warcraft? Open Beta Test for North America. The open phase of beta will give people a chance to enter Azeroth and play World of Warcraft before the game is released. More details will become available in the days ahead, so stay tuned.”
Star Alliance and Campaign Creations hosted a contest where participants must complete a UMS map for starcraft within 10 hours (honor system). This contest is over, Dark Primus who led the competition has notified the public that he will be uploading all submissions.
Thanks to the StarCraft modding comunity for these three downloads. All three of these projects may be found no-where else. I’ll try and get MFTGATMF into a smaller rar file within the week.
Sorry for the lack of an affilite listing, that’s actually something I wanted to get installed before the launch of the new site, but slipped my mind completely. So now would be your best chance to contact me about becoming an affilite. Secondly, I will be installing a download module, with downloads.
To those who have given me sugestion on what you would like to see from Blizzplanet cudos, I’ll do my best. If anyone wants to post news please use our news thread (or forum) and I’ll have it posted on the main page, thank-you.
After a long absence due to some security issues with PHPnuke, we will be relaunching in October. DarkNemesis has been working on a custom website system for few months, and has notified me that we may be ready to roll on October back to normal.
During the wait on the new system, I dedicated to play World of Warcraft. I am currently lvl 55 Druid. Soon as possible, we will have World of Warcraft content. The news of all Blizzard games will now be possible with the new system. The Starcraft Ghost/Wow Fan Art contest will resume. I was able to download all the submissions from the fanforce.net email account. Fans that were not able to submit due to the email account being full, can now submit the fan art. I deleted everything after downloading the submissions that got through.
I will be taking a look at the submissions and will be made public on October. The deadline of August 31 has been cancelled due to the fact the site was standby with the security breaches. We had to disable the news and content system to avoid further attacks or deletion attempts.
Fan Art Contest will be open until October 31 as a way to give time to those who tried to submit and couldn’t go through with the email account full. My apologies for the inconveniences and the unannounced vacation due to the security breaches.
Should take us about to the end of the month to finish up.
Starcraft Campaign Contest is experiencing communication difficulties.
Fanart Contest is on hold untill we have all the images upload the fanforce email is being read through.
The forum is going to be post-poned untill the CMS is fine-tuned. However I do accept sugestions from their the sugestion thread in the forums or that nifty little script in the side bar called message programmer (thet’s me!). You can also contact me, contact info rmation is in the temporary forums.
