World of Warcraft cities become insta-deathtraps, hacker suspected


Entire cities of players and NPCs in World of Warcraft are being wiped out in a solitary blow, WoW Insider reports. The death traps began on European servers, in the cities of Ogrimmar and Stormwind, and have since spread to Tarren Mill, Ragnaros, Draenor, Twisting Nether and other realms, and include US servers, according to player reports.

A few videos document the phenomenon, showing level one characters insta-killing everyone in the area and the subsequent graveyards. The above video shows a level one Priest as he takes out everyone around him in Stormwind (the YouTube description reads, "The guy laughing is not the hacker!").

Blizzard has yet to comment officially.
