Today was interesting and also disturbing. I went to work last night an my GF's two boys decided that they needed to play the 10 Day trial of WoW, together...
Well the good news is you don't need to get a code to play the trial anymore. Oh no, Blizz fixed that. The problem is that you can download and install the trial right over the top of your retail copy of WoW! Oh yea, and according to the older boy of 13, there are no warning messages about a retail version on the computer. They only needed to set up a trial account, not install the trial version of WoW.
Can this be true? I don't want to try and install the trial version to find out. I just know I lost the better part of the day on a week where it was just a "rolling restart" to reinstalling the whole ball of wax. Not to mention any addons, fixing all of my options and generally being pissed off.
So, if you are out there Blizz, please make sure to add a better check system to your 10 Day Free Download Trial.
The punishment is for the older boy to install my retail version on the other laptop that he also jacked up with the trial version. I think it's all fair since I did the other laptop. I did ask that next time the boys want to mess up my day to please just kick me in the balls. It is so much less painful then installing WoW from scratch.
