"For those of you cheering this on, remember that your sub fees went to this lawsuit (crime or no crime) as opposed to getting Cataclysm done."

Did you happen to notice the part where some of the amount awarded to Blizzard was specifically intended to cover legal fees?

Are you implying that they set aside money for some sort of...legal department?

Gosh that sounds like *every business in the history of forever and ever*.

I can't tell: are you bitter because you aren't in the beta or just trolling people because you can't read that legal fees are recovered from the other side?

This is Blizzard, not NCSoft. I stopped reading your post.

You spent that much time writing out your garbage yet you couldn't be bothered to read the damned article? They RECOVERED their attorney fees which were a measly 63,000 USD to begin with.

LOL Are you saying Blizz can't simultaneously sue someone and develop an expansion? WTF Do you think Blizz is, Funcom? These guys have more money that the US GDP. They could buy most countries with their money and not notice the loss. Oh yeah, they've been working on Starcraft II and Diablo III while suing this person as well. Damn those guys are some multitaskers.

So basically, someone pirates their server and they get away with enough to make StarCraft 2? I highly doubt that server made 85 million. Here comes the appeal.

Private servers have existed and survived since the UO days. Tons of them sell microtransaction services or paypal donations. I doubt this will stop the private server community, but it will probably stymie the WoW pserver community, at least.

I will miss the Scapes servers. Couldn't care less if it's legal or not, honestly. The Vanilla-only server was awesome. There are many new gamers out there that pretend to be "oldschool" and never experienced the original World of Warcraft. They speak poorly about it only because it is a trend.

I speak poorly of it, because I know how horrible Wrath is compared to what once was. While I understand it's illegal and inevitable, I'm still sorry to see it go.

People seem to miss the point on this thread. This (and virtually every comment by Tempes Magus irrespective of the article subject) is about how subscription games are evil and everythring should be free to play, and if you disagree you are wrong.

Kinda a shame. I had fun there a long time ago. Anyone else here remember the Evolution guild on scape? Fond memories there.
