Cataclysm Is Now Live (In Europe)

Worgen Priest

"My, what big teeth you have!" "The better to pwn you with n00b, lolz!"

Ah. That sweet, sweet new expansion smell is upon us as Cataclysm has now finally launched (in Europe). After months of eager anticipation and consternation and trepidation, we (Europeans) are now finally able to play the Cataclysm expansion (in Europe). I’ve overcome my shame and will gladly admit that my fingers were quivering like a gentle first time lover as I created my Worgen Priest on my bustling (European) server, filled to the brim with other (croissant eating) players (of European habitation).

I could make the somewhat unpopular decision to gloat about the fact that it’s still December 6th (in Europe and America) and I am able to play without the unfortunate need to stand outside in a queue at a shop front in the midst of a freezing (European) winter to collect my copy. No sir, digital was the way to go tonight and I’m eternally thankful (to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, a great European who instigated birth of the Internet) for it.

Anyway, I hope everyone (who’s European) is enjoying Cataclysm right now (in Europe) as much as I am. I couldn’t imagine having to wait even another moment more to play it. Cause that would really suck.

Bonne nuit, gute nacht, buona notte and buenas noches el compadres.

-Sir Gordon of Europe

  1. Damn you being able to play, digital download here as well, but lost track of time by killing off the last hour writing a blog post … and now login servers are not letting me on! Hope I can join the fun soon.

  2. You guys deserve it after the LOTRO F2P and other assorted debacles with sub-par European publishers.

  3. Heh heh, rub it in a little more, why don’t you? :P

    But no, seriously, good for you EU folks. I don’t even care but seeing the rivers of QQ tears from people complaining that Europeans get to play first makes me want to root for you guys. I’m actually reading a bunch right now, killing some time before dinner. To see how some are having complete mental meltdowns about how “now all the “World Firsts” will go to the Europeans” is amusing to say the least.

    Haha Gordon.

    Glad you Euros are getting fair treatment on a release date for once. Hope it goes smoothly and you all are playing come this time tomorrow.

    I am jealous. I wish I could be playing right now. I plan on napping until Midnight, and playing for about 3 hours before work.

    I sincerely hope all you EUROPEANS–not to be confused with non-Europeans :-) are enjoying!
    A lot of moaning & angst-ridden posts appearing in all other realms (North American and Oceanic, especially)!! ha ha

    Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, not the Internet. Just sayin’.

    Well, we Aussies don’t get it until the same time as the yanks, but at least their midnight is our leisurely 7:00pm.

    And even I am thankful of the digital upgrade :)

    Logged on crack of dawn this morning and have been running around with my Worgen Rogue called GordTheWorg…. You can thank my wife for the name :)

    Suddenly I’m enjoying the fact that I’m working from home today, because of the snow and ice, and I can level up over lunchtime!!!

  11. I vowed never to play WOW again … damn … I freak that was a promise waiting to be broken.

    What server are you on btw?

  12. :-/ I meant fear ofc (but freak will do as well)
