Blizzard is not messing around with DDOS attacks. The BBC has a piece out on a World of Warcraft player from Romania, Calin Mateias, who was apparently extradited to California, charged with conducting a denial of service attack on WoW’s servers back in 2010. He pleaded guilty to “causing damage to a protected computer,” will sit for a year in prison,...

The love boat docks in Chronicles of Elyria’s port

Hope you’re ready for a combination of both nautical and amorous elements, because that’s what Chronicles of Elyria is dishing up for its “Kickstarterversary.” In other news, the English language just flipped over the table and stormed out of the room saying, “That’s it, I’m done with this foolishness.” For this month’s one-year anniversary of Chronicles of Elyria’s Kickstarter campaign,...
