In patch 2.1, Blizzard responded to this by adding additional anti-spam mechanics including whisper throttling and the report spam function. Additionally, trial accounts are prevented from speaking in the public chat channels (although they may speak to players within range or whisper to other players that have first whispered to them), participating in in-game trades, and using the Auction House and the mail feature, among other limitations.
World of Warcraft runs natively on both Macintosh and Windows platforms. Boxed copies of the game use a hybrid CD to install the game, eliminating the need for separate Mac and Windows retail products. The game allows all users to play together, regardless of their operating system. Although there is no official version for any other platform, support for World of Warcraft is present in Windows API implementations Wine and CrossOver allowing the game to be played under Linux and FreeBSD.[47] In addition, the Windows client allows for direct OpenGL rendering in Wine, making performance on Unix-like platforms comparable to the native performance seen on Windows.[48] While a native Linux client is neither released nor announced by Blizzard, in January 2011 IT journalist Michael Larabel indicated in a Phoronix article that an internal Linux client might exist but is not released due to the non-standardization of the Linux distro ecosystem.[49]
El pacífico reino de Azeroth está a punto de entrar en guerra para enfrentarse a unos terribles invasores: orcos guerreros que han dejado su destruido mundo para colonizar otro. Al abrirse un portal que conecta ambos mundos, un ejército se enfrenta a la destrucción, y el otro, a la extinción. Dos héroes, uno en cada bando, están a punto de chocar en un enfrentamiento que cambiará el destino de su familia, su pueblo y su hogar. Así empieza una espectacular saga de poder y sacrificio donde se descubren las numerosas caras de la guerra y donde cada uno lucha por lo suyo. Adaptación del popular videojuego homónimo.

On July 6, 2010, Blizzard Entertainment announced that on its forums for all games, users' accounts would display the real names tied to their accounts.[127] Blizzard announced the change following an agreement with Facebook to allow Facebook to connect persons who choose to become friends to share their real identity (Real ID, as Blizzard calls the feature). The integration of the feature into the forums on the Blizzard Entertainment site raised concerns amongst fans of the many game series Blizzard has created over the years.[128]

The seventh expansion, Battle for Azeroth, was released worldwide on August 13 and 14 (depending on location) 2018.[77]
In December 2015, Blizzard sold an in-game battle pet named Brightpaw for $10 with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.[145] This resulted in a new Blizzard record donation of over $1.7 million to Make-A-Wish.[146] In December 2016, Blizzard again sold a battle pet named Mischief for $10; it helped raise more than 2.5 million for Make-A-Wish.[147] In September 2017, Blizzard sold a battle pet named Shadow the fox for $10, with proceeds going to the Red Cross to help with disaster relief.[148]
World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth released game set in the Warcraft fantasy universe.[3] World of Warcraft takes place within the Warcraft world of Azeroth, approximately four years after the events at the conclusion of Blizzard's previous Warcraft release, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.[4] The game was announced in 2001, and was released for the 10th anniversary of the Warcraft franchise on November 23, 2004. Since launch, World of Warcraft has had seven major expansion packs released for it: The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, and Battle for Azeroth.

El mapamundi de World of Warcraft es muy extenso, ya que cuenta (a partir de las expansiones) con CUATRO dimensiones o mundos: Azeroth, Terrallende, Draenor y Argus, que cada uno cuenta con continentes, numerosas regiones, ciudades y mazmorras que se pueden explorar. Las tierras incluidas con el juego básico son los Reinos del Este y Kalimdor. Después, con cada expansión se fue aumentando poco a poco el mapamundi añadiendo nuevas zonas a explorar, o remodelando las tierras anteriores, actualmente el juego base World of Warcraft Battlechest incluye contenido explorable hasta la expansión de Legion, incluyendo las dos tierras mencionadas anteriormente, Pandaria, Terrallende y Rasganorte.
