Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that World of Warcraft, its subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), has surpassed 1.5 million paying customers in China - just a month following the game's commercial launch on June 7, 2005. The critically acclaimed World of Warcraft has now achieved another significant milestone as the largest MMORPG in the world, with more than 3.5 million global customers.

Scarlet Monastery guild runs (WoW:US)

For anyone that is on the US Mannoroth Server, tonight the SSX will be running Scarlet Monastery. If you are interested in joining the fun please contact sakuragi for more information.

Congrats to Ava & NS (WoW:EU)

Congratulations go to Avator & Nightstone who became new moderators for the SSX guild yesterday evening.

Thanks to everyone that voted on the two forum polls, and to the people that put their trust in both of them by giving them this chance. I'm sure they won't let us down ;)

Upcoming Scholomance & Stratholme weekend (22nd-24th, WoW:EU)

Next weekend (22nd-24th) we're gonna try some SSX Scholo & Strath runs. Not sure which day we'll do which runs but we can decide that when the time comes.

There's some very nice drops in both places so if your interested in coming to Scholo/Strath either for loot or just to help other members of the guild get some of the items they're after (or even just to increase your rep with the Argent Dawn), then mail me ingame to put your name down. (Hellmasker)

Will aim for around 7:30ish like the runs we've been having the past few weekends have started at.

Hope to see lots of you sign up. :)

New SSX WoW site!

I have finally found the time to finish the work I started on making us a World of Warcraft guild site.

Here you can find information about our guild, conditions of joining, lists of our members/allies/blacklist. A page dedicated to World of Warcraft screenshots, and links to both our forums and other useful WoW sites.

Hope you like the new site, if you find any problems feel free to PM me on the forums. ;)

Update on the new HUD

Quoted from Nid:

"The replacement HUD is not yet at a level that we feel we can release and even though it will be completed at some point there is no date set currently (we're concentrating on stability, performance, and a number of other low-level engine improvements right now)."

NC2 Planfile #3

A 3rd planfile has been released from KK, some highlights from the planfile are:

- New marketing plan due to start in August, this campaign uses the "No more Elves!" slogan. No more details are known about this campaign as of yet.

- KK's partnership with Alchemic Dream comes to an end.
