FileFront is NOT closing down!
by Gedan, Admin @ 09-04-02 23:28 EST

FileFront will remain open, the recent news however was NOT an early April Fool's joke, instead the original founders purchased it and FileFront now stand as a independent company again:

"After learning about Ziff Davis Media's plan to suspend FileFront at the end of March, the original founders of FileFront made the decision to buy it back from Ziff Davis Media.

We're happy to announce to the gaming community that as of today, April 1st, 2009, FileFront is a completely independent company again and is no longer part of Ziff Davis Media. All previously suspended services should be active and working again. We thank Ziff Davis Media for their cooperation and willingness to keep the site and community alive.

Due to the very unfortunate timing of this event and related announcements on March 24th and April 1st (April Fool's Day), we'd like to make it perfectly clear that:

1) 1) The March 24th announcement about FileFront suspending its operation was NOT an early April Fool's joke.

2) This announcement about the original founders buying back FileFront from Ziff Davis Media is also NOT an April Fool's joke.

3) We're making this announcement on April 1st because the deal was completed today and we want to bring all services back online immediately.

4) We would NEVER suspend FileFront as an April Fool's joke.

5) We are happy to be back!..


.. Welcome home. Game On!"

Malicious websites
by baloo, Admin @ 08-04-08 12:04 EST

There have been a few domains registered with a similar name to our real domain "warcraftmovies.com" that are used for spreading harmful content.

Our site should only be accessed via warcraftmovies.com and no other domain.

Keep your anti-virus software updated to avoid these kind of problems.

Introducing: l337 speak!
by Gedan, Admin @ 08-04-01 10:29 EST

Due to popular demands we have implemented "leet speak" to our homepage. We pulled some strings and recruited one of our top PvP Author to translate our site! Why do we go through all this trouble? This written argot will prevent our parents and others that do not play the game from understanding what we are doing here, before the summer no one outside this community will ever know we excised!

We thank you for your patience while implementing the "leet speak" on our servers, this is just the BETA phase and when everything is working leet will be default language. In the final stage of this renewal titles and voice over on movies will be manually changed to fit the new standard. Below are a few examples on how the system has improved our Authors summary:

I'm So Sick

Tales of the past III

Eviscerate 7 - World PvP, Daggers

Nihilum EU-BG3 Grand Final

For now you will have to click the new official flag in the top right corner to get the desired effect.

Hope you are as excited about this as we are, reply to this thread if you want to help us translate all the movies and we will get in contact with you.
