Please, Blizzard's April Fools stuff was mundane...

Logging into Guildwars and seeing nothing but Stick Figures walking around... PRICELESS.

I don't think the stench of fanboy has ever been so strong...

You actually missed one - there was a "loot pinata" for Diablo. :)

My favorite line was "Skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius". This was a famous complaint thread in the TBC beta when Blizzard made a change that caused hitting rocks with a mining pick to aggro nearby hostile mobs. In addition to the obvious "every bears" issue, the poster apparently didn't consider that the analogy does not hold up because leather can only be obtained from mobs that are already dead (much like ore can, after the change, only be obtained from deposits where the surrounding mobs are dead). Needless to say, the remarks became immortal. :)

I did see the Diablo piƱata and thought of including it, but it's not technically an MMO, so I left it out. That said, Starcraft 2 isn't an MMO either, but the Tauren angle made it irresistible!
