World of Warcraft
Does this mean no pet? :(
The Baby Blizzard Bear was a gift that we mailed to players for logging in for our five-year anniversary. We plan to reserve this sort of celebratory bonus for the most notable milestones or events.
Contrary to what the blue post says, Blizzard gave away the Onyxian Whelpling
pet to all those who logged in during World of Warcraft's
five-year anniversary. The Baby Blizzard Bear
pet was actually a gift for the game's fourth anniversary in 2008 -- a milestone that is arguably no more notable than the upcoming sixth anniversary.
But I digress. Yes, it's sad that we're not getting a pet this year. And yes, it is
weird that the anniversary period doesn't include the actual anniversary of the game. Still, any disappointment stems from Blizzard just plain being too generous in the past with this kind of stuff, so you can't hit the company too hard for coming up short this year.
