Blizzard vs. SOE in April Fool's Deathmatch

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Well, apparently I wasn't the only one to try a little April Fool's Day prank.

Blizzard
posted a hilarious send-up of the /pizza command. Okay, it was a little dated (I covered it a month ago) but still very funny. The very idea of typing /panda makes me laugh and the accompanying pictures are side-splitting.

And you certainly can't say SOE didn't deserve it after going after Blizzard with the ridiculous "no waiting" ads.

Almost as funny is this post on the WOW forums giving 5 reasons why "Pandaren Express" is a bad idea. Let's hope the poster was joking but he sure plays it straight.

SOE apparently decided to stage an April Fool's comeback later in the day. Nice idea but if you're going to try to be funny you should at least try to be little bit, well, funny. I mean /smorgasbord? Funny word I guess but just not that funny or original a concept. The whole thing looked kind of slapped together in five minutes.

Let's hope their gameplay updates are better than their humor.
