Two bosses may enter... but only one will get to leave in WoW Insider's fantasy deathmatch series. Every week we pit two of Azeroth's raid bosses against one another in a battle that your votes get to decide. This week we have Ahn'Qiraj's Twin Emperors going up against Blackwing Lair's Chromaggus....

It's that time of the week again -- time to lock two World of Warcraft bosses into a life or death struggle for our amusement! We call our little game Two Bosses Enter, and each week we start with two bosses and inevitably end with one. But don't worry: our fantasy deathmatches are just for fun, th...

Reader Silvertiger sends in this lovely shot of a part of Azeroth that I think is oft overlooked since the release of The Burning Crusade: Silithus. In the pre-expansion world, Silithus was a great place for players in their mid to high 50s to quest and grind out those last levels before 60. But th...

This video is hardly new -- dated very clearly by its references to the gates of Ahn'Qiraj. And, if you weren't playing around the time the gates were opening, the plot may not make sense, but the gate opening event, in an effort to include players of all levels, required the vast collection of rand...

In our closest match to date, the Twin Emperors are walking away with a very narrow victory over the Four Horsemen. In fact, they won by only 12 votes -- out of a total of 1700! However, a victory is a victory. Commenters cite the twins' ability to heal one another as a major deciding factor in th...

It's been a long time since the gates of Ahn'Qiraj were opened on any of the realms I play on -- so it's kind of nice to see this shot sent in by reader Robin reminding me how darned cool the gate opening event was. And, since the game has scarcely enough dragons, this event includes quite a few of...

US realm Gnomeregan is asking Blizzard to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj for them. Why? They're a 5 month old realm (meaning no realm transfers for another month) and, while the war effort was completed 2 months ago, no guild on the realm has downed Ragnaros yet -- and with the guild tensions caused...

This thread in the raid and dungeons forum is not the first - nor will it be the last - to complain about the difficulty in scheduling an increasing number of raid dungeons.  As raiding guilds seek to advance through higher level instances, some raids need to be cut out of the rotation - and fo...

When Blackwing Lair was released, way back in patch 1.6, it was ridden with bugs.  In order to keep the content top secret and preserve fair competition between guilds seeking world firsts on the live realms, it was never released on the public test realms - and its lack of polish showed. ...
