Photo Gallery: Retired World of Warcraft Server – HotHardware

“Blizzard Entertainment is offering a series of special charity auctions featuring server hardware originally used during World of Warcraft’s early days. We’ve since upgraded the game’s infrastructure with the latest technology to offer an even better player experience, but these ‘honorably discharged’ server blades are now unique collectors’ pieces. The net proceeds from the auction will go to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”

I wish I would have heard about this auction. I’ve never played World of Warcraft, but would have really liked to have this little chunk of history.

    Blizzard did a nice job of dressing up that blade. When it comes to branding they know their stuff.

    I wonder how many of those things I’ve bought in the 2 years my son has been playing. (grin)
