Hackers were somehow able to gain control of the game and kill characters at will. Normally players of WoW are unable to kill each other unless they each agree to a duel, but the hackers worked out how to override those wow power leveling. The slaughter saw entire cities wiped out across Azeroth - the world of, well, Warcraft. The populations of Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Tarren Mill, Ragnaros, Draenor and Twisting Nether were put to the hackers sword. In an echo of the South Park episode Make Love, Not Warcraft, it appears as though the hackers were able to rampage unhindered for hours. But the details of the hack are still unclear. ""We do not know exactly what they did, but somehow they were able to kill every single player is character in that city and every single computer controlled character - and they were doing this repeatedly,"" said Olivia Grace, of Joystiq and WoW Insider, to the BBC.
