I knew today was the last day on my WoW subscription but when I logged in to put my affairs in order before the break, I got this weird message: "Your play time expires in 11 minutes".
I've never seen this before and that's why I find it odd, although I'm sure it is completely normal. Up until now I had the impression that Blizzard secretly allowed you to play during your last login even if you went a little bit over your allotted time. It looks like that's not true. Oh well...
Another thing that I've noticed was that I got the same 11 minute deadline when I logged in on each of my characters. Then, the time would start counting down in the chat window with the same yellow letters that indicate how long we have until the server shuts down for maintenance or reboot.
This is a nice touch because it allowed me to grab some items from the mail and even do a couple of dailies. And one more thing: the WoW patch downloader has started to download the first chunk of patch 3.3. I'm not in a hurry for the patch although it brings some exciting new things. I'm gonna take a break now, perhaps until 3.3 hits. At any rate, for the next 2 weeks or so. Don't go away though, I'm still here and I will continue to blog!
Former WoW player, current Diablo 3 fanatic, I love the finer things in life such as PC games, beer and computers. While playing a good game is a spiritual experience, blogging about it is almost equally rewarding.
