Ringing Bells and Taking Names at NASDAQ

Ringing Bells and Taking Names at NASDAQ



On Monday, March 7 Blizzard Entertainment founders Mike Morhaime, Frank Pearce, and Allen Adham rang the closing bell at the NASDAQ stock exchange in New York in celebration of Blizzard's 20th anniversary.  

While most executives might have spent their free time discussing the financial market, Mike and Frank decided to squeeze in a game of StarCraft II instead. (Frank won their heated TvT mirror match, but it was close, in case you were wondering.)

While our founders were ringing the bell inside, Blizzard was taking over Times Square outside in the name of our global gaming community. We projected a seven-story-high video featuring cinematics from World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty on the NASDAQ tower for a full hour -- marking the first time that Deathwing was ever rendered to scale.


Thanks to your support, Blizzard has been able to spend the last twenty years developing and publishing some of the most epic entertainment experiences ever. Please visit our 20th Anniversary site to take part in the celebration, and be sure to check out the extensive retrospective video we posted recently.

April Fools!


We hope you enjoyed our April Fools' Day jokes this year! If you missed them, check out this year's pranks:

And so, the Blizzard Joke Squad go galumphing back whence they came, hiding amid the slithy toves that gyre and gimble in the wabe, busily plotting and scheming for the future. See you again next year!

Chat With Your Guild Using the Mobile Armory
« Reply #13 on: April 21, 2011, 03:58:49 AM »

Chat With Your Guild Using the Mobile Armory


A new feature has just been added to the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app: remote Guild Chat! As part of the latest update for the free Mobile Armory app for the iPhone and iPod touch, the new Guild Chat feature lets you stay in touch with your guildmates wherever you go:

  • Read and contribute to your guild’s in-game chat channel in real time

  • Participate in one-on-one conversations with members of your guild

  • View the members of your guild who are currently online


For a limited time, players can use the Guild Chat feature without a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote. During this time, we'll be rolling out the Guild Chat feature to select realms, with more realms being added in the future -- check out this forum post to see if the feature is currently available on your realm. After the free preview period ends, players will need to have a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote in order to continue using the feature. We'll announce the end of the free preview period, along with the availability of the feature on Android devices, in the near future -- keep an eye on the official World of Warcraft website for further details.


To learn more about World of Warcraft Remote subscriptions, which also grant you full access to the Remote Auction House, visit the World of Warcraft Remote page, or go here to subscribe.


The World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app is available as a free download from the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch.

I wonder who cares.
We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
