Taking bets on how long this will last...


No, "World of Warcraft Island" is not made by Blizzard -- just in case you were confused. What it seems to be is a web game with turn based combat using World of World of Warcraft graphics, races, classes (sort of), skills, monsters, etc. I'm not sure how or why anyone would have thought this to be a good idea, especially considering that it must have taken some time to throw all of this together. While you can currently create an account and play for free (the game is supposedly in beta status), you do so at your own risk -- who knows what they're doing with the e-mail addresses they collect or whether the game may actually be harmful in some way.
