    I remember that. I also remember when they try to introduce the 3rd expansion by infecting players and NPC which turn them into zombies. It was suppose to stay in the vanilla world but soon enough got into the 2nd expansion areas. Quests were not able to be done and lower level characters will die by high level zombies. Best time ever.

    Sometimes, scrolling through comments sections is fascinating. People reveal so much about themselves. The gamers making comments can be sorted into three categories: 1. Those who use the video as an opportunity to start a discussion about the game. 2. Those who join in the humour by making amusing comments. 3. Those who are too insecure to handle humour, get offended by it, and express their anger and outrage in their comments. Lighten up, folks. Make the most out of life, and enjoy it. As long as you're not harming yourself or anyone else, don't be ashamed about who you are.

    It would be interesting if instead of just fixing their code and reseting the servers, the devs created a cure or vaccine for the players, but allowed the disease to keep existing! Then they could add doctor NPCs to sell the cure/vaccine!
