The Armory

If you’re like me and you’re checking your World of Warcraft realm forums for the weekly game of “Who’s Flaming Me Now?”, you might be redirected to a GoDaddy parked-domain page instead of your flamer’s armory link.

wowarmory.com

You’ll be tempted to join the conspiracy theorists and use this as evidence that Blizzard is playing both sides of the gold game, but really it’s just a DNS snafu.

Damn.

    Blizzard’s subdomain address for the Armory is still working.

    Wondering if this is a DNS snafu or Blizzard wasn’t quick enough on a domain renewal. Either way it was an amusing discovery over the weekend.

    I’ve always wondered how you can link someone’s forum troll account to their main? I made a post a few weeks back with a low level on a separate realm to ask a sort of noob question and people started commenting on my main’s arena ratings 😛

    Nereus – do you happen to use a sig on the forums at all? If you’ve posted with your main with that same sig, they can usually backtrack and find that.

    WOW Insider reported this, that the domain wowarmory.com having expired that day, and speculating some other registrant had snapped it up immediately.

    ah, thanks MH 🙂 that must be it, my sig is a quote from the Office so probably pretty easy to find
