    This year's jokes were bit boring compared to previous years.

    Crabby had to be the best of the Blizzard ones...

    ...but DBM trumped them all, I'm afraid.

    I believe that was by a fansite and not Blizzard itself.

    My all time favourite prank by Blizzard is heroic class: bard. This year neural interface was awesome...

    Besides Blizzard's pranks DBM's boss voices prank was also amazing imo; C'thun's "You...will...die" scared the hell outta me in the middle of the night...

    Anyone noticed how Crabby has a Klutzy on his head? That's not even the right game, Blizzard!

    This crab is driving me insane. It's like a worse version of Clippet.

    Really enjoyed the supply depot joke. Would probably actually play it.Zergotchi would be an actually good product.
