A Blizzard employee messages me! SQUEEEE!
Here I am, minding my own business, and I get a message out of the blue by non other then “Blizzjoyce” who also happens to be a level 1 orc warrior by the way. Here is the very important message she had to deliver word for engrish word (punctuation placement painstaking preserved…say that 4x fast).
[Blizzjoyce]: Deal World of Warcraft players,Blizzard system scan to your account insecurity,please log the safety net , or else Blizzard will stop using your account’s rights in one hour .Certifcations of Warcraft account information site ” http://battle-wow.mobi”
Yes I kid you not…I had one hour before Blizzard will stop using MY “account’s rights” for not logging into “the safety net“. Whew I had better hurry. For those of you who aren’t familiar with “the safety net” website…let me show you.
Above you’ll see the login screen. And yes, now you know my account login name. Also you probably already knew this but my password is “a”. Strange though….they didn’t ask me for my Blizzard Authenticator number. *SHRUG*
After signing in confirm that you have security logged in by checking to see your account name is properly listed right under the dwarf header graphic. This lets you know we’re on the “official” battle-wow.mobi site. Any fake site wouldn’t be able to repost your submitted unsecured form information like that.
You might also want to pay special attention to all the instructions here….sometimes Blizzard uses fancy graphics for their typography so let me convert the first bit of text for you:
Ulease use the form below to confirm your account information, including your e-mail address and your and Secret Question Answer. Once the fields have been completed, press the “Update” button below.
*Note: Please ensure that your e-mail and Secret Question Answer is currently accessible submit this form, as future regarding this account Trial mounts will be sent to the you account.
Oh wow…here I thought I was signing into the “safety net” and I find out I get to fill out this form for my Mounts Application Trial. Awesome. I get a trial…for applying…for Mounts? Better get on this right away. But wait? Where can I put in the answer to my secret question like they asked? I don’t see that in the form. Oh well…moving along. I’m not Alliance so lets put in…….Tribal? OMG OMG OMG! New cataclysm faction! Blizzard leaked info! With Thrall gone the faction will be renamed from The Horde to The TRIBAL! WOOT! Role name? What role do I put? Doesn’t Blizzard know Mages R4DPS? Oh well, I drop in my info and hit submit.
“Ucongratulations!” to me! I’ve “Account information has Submit successfully” and now they “Approved we will immediately contact you!” Also we don’t appear to have any links relating to this success page…but we’ll still leave this section in for good measure…
Still with time to kill I decided to click on the left hand navigation links to see if there was any new wallpapers out.
Well that doesn’t look right. I think its a 404 error page but I can’t tell. Oh good….Google is offering to translate it for me from….???? Chinese??!?!?!?!! WOW! I didn’t know Blizzard hosts their web servers in China. I’ll be sure to submit a ticket to them letting them know the link is broken…perhaps that will help my chances with the Mounts Application Trial.
Now all I have to do is wait! I wonder what mount they are testing! I’m so lucky to be asked to test a new mount out on my live server. This is so cool how they decided to skip the PTR and enlist random people. Wish me luck!
