On June 10th, the Horde and Alliance meet in a way they've not met in their almost 12 years of existence. Warcraft, the movie will introduce millions of World of Warcraft fans to Azeroth on the silver screen. Legendary Pictures released gorgeous posters of Warcraft's eight main characters, with a short description that explains their role in the movie.

But first, some sad news. Nostalrius, one of World of Warcraft's biggest and most popular private servers, has been axed by Blizzard. The server was so popular because many of the WoW old-timers prefer playing vanilla WoW - which was what  Nostalrius offered. The Nostalrius team explained the sad news in an open letter:

"Yesterday, we received a letter of formal notice from US and french lawyers, acting on behalf of Blizzard Entertainment, preparing to stand trial against our hosting company OVH and ourselves in less than a week now. This means the de facto end of Nostalrius under its current form. We know the time you spent here, the guilds you were part of, and these people with whom you have shared experiences with. We know the strength of these links, and we also know that they do not need a special WoW realm to survive." 

They've also launched a petition on which currently stands at almost 43 000 supporters.
