God, it's like I can't shut up today.
Those of you who remember the controversy about Blizzard's Rest State System might be interested to know the changes they've incorporated. In discussions with people in my own inbox, there was a specific issue that needed resolution - the fact that there are many people who play these games primarily during the weekend, and they might never load a character during the week. The rest system as implemented currently would create some real issues for those people as they gained levels - the changes they've designed deal with this and other issues in a way that is a bit more elegant. Also, to my great satisfaction, Auction Houses are coming - auction houses connected to a global mail system that allows for cash on delivery item sending.
