A deadly virtual plague has broken out in the online game World of Warcraft.

The event involved the game character Hakkar, who just happens to be the god of blood. Anyone fighting Hakkar catches a plague, which is also highly-contagious to sub-Level 50 characters. It is thought the disease was made contagious to allow it to spread to nearby allies. No one--not even Blizzard--expected that a player would make it back to a populated area, though. Well, one did, and the character infected a whole city; the devastation went from there. The disease isn't limited to players either, as NPCs are also keeling over and dying. Quarantine methods are failing, since players carrying the disease are still free to move around the world as they please.

So, let me guess who that one player was who infected everyone else... Could it be Leroy JENKINS??

I heard about this and laughed so hard for the longest time. I was in game when I heard it and immediatly yelled, "EVERYONE START GRINDING!" :whistling:

That's my advice, although now at this point, I've stopped playing. I may start again soon, when I'm rich enough to pay for it :blink:

The Capital city of the horde side i was in was lagging because there were hundreds of skeletons on the ground from players dieing lol.

dllp117's friend: i play wow and i have never encountered this cause i am only lvl 39 but i find this very distressing because i am under the lvl of 50 and i also think that whoever started the disease didn't do it on purpose, but it is still really funny and i feel heart felt sorrow for the poor horde in the archimonde realm lol.
