Blizzard Entertainment Celebrates World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Success in Style

Blizzard Entertainment celebrated the success of the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion in style creating their own version of Octoberfest — err, Brewfest.

Developers and employees joined together on the campus outdoors to drink champagne and literally get rained and splashed by it. Several photos made their way into Twitter to share with everyone their great time and pride to work at Blizzard Entertainment. No goblins, dwarves, rams, not even iron dwarves were harmed during this celebration. A [Community Manager of the Year] floating skull got his fire kinda too drenched, though. teehee!

Vaeflare: My other half took an eagle-eye video of the #Blizzard #MoP champagne toast from earlier. I love the screams of joy. 😉 – source

@Vaeflare: The calm before the #Blizzard champagne storm… A bunch of people I know started working at #Blizzard during #MoP and this is their first toast. I am so proud of everyone’s hard work. 🙂 #MoP pic.twitter.com/5Lqs8ZT2

The developers reached alerted each other via Twitter to get a second set of clothes, knowing in advance how ugly things would get once the celebration officially started:

I think this large setup of champagne bottles might easily break a few Guinness records. Well, maybe … almost.

Medievaldragon: This one definitely deserves one of those The Daily Blink comics:

@CM_Zarhym: So @Daxxarri came from behind like a rogue, spraying champagne under my shades into my eye. That’s how young adults imbibe these days right? – source

Michael Chu: Congrats to everyone on the #Pandaria team! You guys rocked it. – source

@CM_Zarhym: @Bashiok But @mumper’s been waiting two years to take a champagne shower. Shouldn’t the world be yearning for pictures? (I’ll take them.)

@Olandgren: So incredibly happy we could deliver a world that our players could love and explore. – source

@Bashiok: Grats to the team on the awesome Mists of #Pandaria launch! #champagneissticky @mumper @Ghostcrawler @DaveKosak – source
