    Default WoW Cataclysm Alpha Leaks

    The Alpha Friends and Family started on Cataclysm and the leaks start! Check out tons of screenshots over at MMO-Champion.com!

    Looks like they still haven't finished that damned bridge in Redridge.

    One of my guildies is in it. We're waiting to pry him away from testing to get some info.

    Impressed by it, Cross? As in, you are in the beta?

    I'd imagine he means impressed by all of the leaks. Seeing as how the client itself is leaked, there is a lot to digest. Cataclysm is not in beta yet. The only testing currently happening is the Friends and Family Alpha.

    I was surprised by the water reflection upgrade. I never thought WoW would do any graphic engine upgrades.

    Part of WoWs popularity is because you can just about run the game on a cell phone, what will happen if they upgrade the engine past what their players can handle?
    -Make America Nazi Free!

    -Agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.

    Then the players will have to stop being whiny babies and actually upgrade their atari 2600's.

    Low-end specs now are higher than low-end specs when WoW launched. Going on 5 years, most people will have replaced their computer at least once. With the numbers Blizzard already has, it is probably better to risk losing a small percentage if it means making the game fresh for all of your fans. Otherwise, WoW would begin to get stale like so many MMOs over the 5 year mark.

    They actually added dynamic shadows in with the Wrath of the Lich King, as well as redid most of the spell effects to look flashier (in particular, fire effects). It's sort of a thing with WoW: every expansion tends to add a few minor graphic upgrades.

    And I doubt it'll lose them any customers. $10 says they have a checkbox for "Improved Water Quality" in the options screen.

    mmo-champions had most of everything posted, they have since been forced to take it all down.

    Mygga (if anyone even remembers him) and I have been talking about Cataclysm just about every time we hang out. We absolutely went ape-shit for everything Goblin, the roads, the car, the totems, the fucking golf course in Azshara.

    Having so much fun with my tauren warrior now, I can't wait to roll a goblin. A warrior with blink?!? Hello 10-19 WSG, you are my bitch.
