I found it on the Games page, rather than the mainpage, so it should be fine.

Yeah, that happened Thursday night. Didn't generate as much traffic as you might think...

The server had zero problem with this, FYI. Getting hit by thousands upon thousands of WOW fans over the last few weeks generated a lot more traffic (and, again, the server was just fine). Most other servers die because most people have shared accounts and aren't allowed to use more than 2% of the server's CPU. Since this site is on a dedicated server it gets to use 100% of the CPU! ;D
