Hmmm. Maybe they are still trying to figure out how to keep people from dumping WoW for D3? They already have this deal where if you sign up for a year's worth of a WoW subscription they'll give you D3...you know they have to be worried. They don't want to just end up breaking even when the D3 release sales are offset by WoW sub cancellations.
Oh, thou clear spirit, of thy fire thou madest me, and like a true child of fire, I breathe it back to thee.
