Blizzard Appolgizes for World Of Warcraft Expansion Issues With Free Game Time

Blizzard gives World of Warcraft subscribers 5 free days off game time due to Warlords of Draenor launch issues.

It's no doubt that World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor has launched with a number of issues. Issues stemming from the huge growth of player population, to DDOS attacks, to communities lashing out. Blizzard has noticed all these issues and is looking to set things right.

J Allen Brack, Executive Producer of World of Warcraft has taken to the official forums to write an open letter to the fans. He goes over the issues that people have faced and what technical changes occurred to ease the problems. J Allen Brack also came out with fantastic news for the World of Warcraft community.

In recognition of the difficulties so many of you ran into when trying to play over the first few days, we're adding five days’ worth of extra time to every subscription in the Americas, Oceania, and Europe that was active as of Friday, November 14. 

This is something you could only expect from Blizzard Entertainment. They have a track record of putting their fans first and this is a prime example of it. As time goes on, all the issues with this new expansion launch should reduce themselves, but it's good to know that Blizzard is still 100% standing behind their products and will continue to do so.
