    Just wanted to know if anyone here has played any version of World of Warcraft and wanted a little review of what it played like on Mac. I know my chances are slim of anyone on here playing it but i just wanted to try. Any feedback is welcome.

    I'm in the beta. It's pretty unstable, but thankfully it's still in beta. I've had it cause many system-wide freezes on my G5. Also, there is a bug (that seems to be mac-only) that makes the water sometimes not show up. Besides that, though, the game runs great, even on my 64mb radeon 9600 (which will soon be upgraded to a 6800 ultra).

    It runs craptastically on my G4/733 and Radeon 8500, but that's to be expected, honestly. Apparently there are also tons of driver specifics bugs with the Radeon 8500, and there are some weird image things. The game still looks amazing, all things considered, though I'm usually getting 5-10 FPS. (1024x768, farclip around 3 of 10, all options low)

    Well, your computer isn't supported--the minimum is 1Ghz CPU, right?

    There is also a review of the beta over at MacWorld. Check it out.

    I'm not in the beta, but even if people did make copies provided the beta was distributed on CD-ROM, you would still need to have an account to get in and play the game. And that's only if it's on a CD; if you have to download it Blizzard probably would want an account first. Bottom line: only people who applied and were picked will be able to play.

    And if Blizzard allowed copies, what would be the point of a signup and selection process?
