April 1st Fun

Normally I'm not really a fan of April Fool's Day, because it provides an opportunity for people to either promise something amazing that later turns out to be a lie, or they drop some terrible bombshell and then say "Oh sorry, it was just a joke, I didn't mean it!". Not really my idea of fun.

I do, however, enjoy seeing and reading about the funny things people come up with. I've collected a few of them here.

Blizzard hasn't disappointed this year with a few different jokes:
  • Find that someone special to pwn noobs with using the new Battle.Net Matchmaking service!  Make sure you watch the promotional video too.
  • The Blizzard Store revealed their new contraption - the Battle.Net Neural Interface.  It connects directly to your brain for full game immersion (with only a few minor side effects), and even comes in a range of colours!
  • The Armory went a little fishy, turning everyone's toons into Tuskarrs and everyone's professions to fishing! The activity feed also showed everyone ninja'd their items and cheesed their achievements.
  • Finally Blizzard have under development for Cataclysm a system that should make the dreaded GearScore obsolete - Equipment Potency EquivalencE Number (EPEEN for short).
From other WoW sites around the interwebs:
If you saw any hilarious ones that I missed, do comment and share!
