FAIL Fake Blizzard!

Post by Borion » Thu Jun 09, 2011 1:55 am

I got this email today, and was thoroughly amused:

  • I don't play in EUROPE
  • Login to your account, In accordance following template to verify your account. = fail grammar and capitalization
  • This was sent to the wrong address!
Seriously, try harder next time failhackers!

Bobo,

Please come back.

That is all.

3 steps to becoming a Warlock -

1. You manage to successfully get everyone in your guild to hate you.
2. You gloat daily on how much better you are than other people.
3. You die on nearly every single pull in a raid environment and still top DPS.

ROFL UPDATE:

I got another email today, it's even more amusing!

Really? I had heard otherwise from someone who is currently playing regularly (not someone from here). He could've been wrong, but it still doesn't help the monetary situation any. ;)
