Vital quests halted as 'World of Warcraft' is blocked in Iran8/29/2012
If you're ever known a diehard "World of Warcraft" fan (or if you are one — there's no judgment here), you already know they can be a little, um, obsessive about their favorite game. So it's little wonder players in Iran are furious after their access to the fantasy role-playing game was cut off. Early reports suggested Iran's repressive government had banned "Warcraft" because it promotes "superstition and mythology." But blame actually lies with the United States: Economic sanctions and trade restrictions with the Middle Eastern nation mean Iranian players can't log on, can't receive refunds, and can't transfer their accounts (and hard-fought quests) to other countries. Peace talks with Iran just took a giant step backwards. [Source]
