In order to raise money for St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Blizzard Entertainment is auctioning off 2,000 recently retired World of Warcraft blade servers on eBay which have been fitted into transparent cases etched with the World of Warcraft logo. In addition, each server bears a plaque with the signatures of the development team and is marked with the realm it was used to host.
Mike Morhaime, CEO [of] Blizzard Entertainment, said: ‘World of Warcraft realms are like the virtual neighbourhoods of the game’s community. They contain the spaces where millions of players have made friendships, forged friendly rivalries, and created lasting memories. Each winner in this auction will own a small monument to those collective experiences. The best part is that this auction benefits a great charity doing tremendous work in helping children from the U.S. and around the world.’
The auctions will run until the end of January. Click here to check them out.
