If this winds up being legitimate and big things happen, I'd just like to say thank you for the times.

I know I've been moody in the past, and I've never really gotten into a stride on the server despite being on it for more than 6 years now. I regret that fact quite a bit.

So thank you for being around to watch me grow. It's humorous to me that the day this was posted also happened to be the day I finally managed to start estrogen therapy (after noticeably suffering through a lack of it for nearly 5 of the years I've been on the server and suffering through that for 22 years in general, so there's the explanation for my behavior). Y'all have been around for a lot with me.

It's worth noting that my Skype is annaebrand.

Despite my "goodbye" post and looking into other options, I'm still waiting for more details from Kretol. As should everyone.

As well, everyone give Sachi good vibes for her effort. Me and Dae are looking into building CotH-esque Neverwinter Nights maps as well.

Annnd there's Skype RP.

The person reporting it is from an internet security firm in Columbia, as stated in the contact info of the report and the website itself. I remember hearing where Blizzard was talking about doing another sweep. They likely contracted them out to do their dirty work. Probably not enough money coming in to pay for a dedicated internal anti-piracy branch anymore. Plus it's not like shutting down a server is going to have people stampeding to retail.

I'm not sure why Blizz just doesn't sell server tools like NWN does, and/or provide paid hosting for them and let people franchise it out. Clearly, people want to host WoW servers; and clearly, Blizz wants more money. Win-win!

Reporter's Title: DMCA Takedown Notice/ Copyright Claim - Emulated server to illegally play the game World of Warcraft through the website conquestofthehorde.com (IP:104.28.4.37 - 104.28.5.37)


After googling and doing quite a bit of research... this is all legit guys. I hate to break it to you all, but they do the DMCA claim -by the book-, in the way any other firm or company would do it. Yes, Blizzard does outscource it, and the person making the claim here LISTS THEM as the copyright holder. They also claim in the form that -part of the problem- is the emulated server. Not just the website. But the "emulated server to illegally play World of Warcraft."

Even if the server may not be back online... ever... I do hope we keep the website and make something of it if Kretol still wants to put in the effort. It's all up to him, so I'm waiting for his word as well. We can make do with a situation leaving us with only the website as well, I'd like to believe, if only as a hub where we talk about the games we play and occasionally roleplay together.

And stay in touch. And stuff. Share game screenshots... And the things. Just not with a WoW focus anymore, and maybe not all in the same place.

CotH has served a very important function to me throughout the years, and not specifically because of the WoW ingredient. Sure, WoW RP has been a lot of fun in the game and it offers a whole different pace to things with a visual medium and instant response, but I can do text as well. I started there, and I can go back there. Or follow into new games with the rest of you once I get a computer that can manage it.

But, if CotH's forums can remain a hub for us, that... would really be ideal. But, like everyone keeps saying...

It's up to Kretol. It's his website. His baby. He decides what to do with it.

Lol, you didn't even have to Google search. She included her phone and email AND the link to the company in the notice--rather deliberately. That's how I pretty much figured it's a contracted agent and not some butthurt kiddie.
She's got nothing to hide, and she'll work for you, too... for the right price!

So... i started on CotH not really long time ago, i got into RPs here in august, but i really like community here and enjoyed RP i had. I really feel sad that i wasn't here for longer time, i guess i should look earlier for alternative from Warcraft 3 RP i had in past. Here my character ideas finally made it to day light, they tasted world, something they were unable to in WC 3.

I regret not spending enough time on forum, but atleast i got to spend some time on server. I guess it's time to jump back to Warcraft 3 for me, or maybe look for next alternative from it. If anyone would like to contact me just hit me on Skype: tarrhor, i'll gladly also play with you people, you can for example look on my game list on steam (Shihor/Etaren) and just poke me to play. I hope i'll keep contact with people i met here.

Uh, i'm not best at saying bye and i want to think there is no need for it but just in case, bye.

So, when do we shift into the anger stage? Perhaps we'll all have a CotH meetup somewhere, then start a riot.

Also, since everyone else is doing it, I've got the perfect song to describe how I feel about this situation.

It was really Nephuria finally getting off hold with Blizz.
Perhaps it is your imperfection that which grants you free will, that allows you to persevere against cosmically calculated odds. You prevailed where the Titans' own perfect creations have failed.

If this really is the end, then it was fun RPing with all of you guys. If there is truly nothing we can do, we could maybe switch to another game?
