World of Warcraft Faction Change service kicks off

The World of Warcraft Faction Change service went live today. Blizzard Entertainment announced the service's "live" status and put out a two-part FAQ explaining the nuances of the switch, but it all boils down to this: for 30 bucks, players can switch an existing Warcraft character’s faction -- Horde to Alliance, Alliance to Horde -- and transfer over all their items and equipment to a new, but comparable character.

It’s like an MMO sex change operation.

Check out the FAQ if you’re an uber-nerd and just need to know what may happen to your socketed gems or honor points if you decide to switch. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the chaos that may be the next few days of World of Warcraft.

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated

When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back at launch I thought it had potential, but not enough to keep people paying for subscription time. Plenty of MMOs have enjoyed a subscription-based model, and games like ...more
