WoWWatch: Digging around

abandoned olympic village

Have you ever wondered what happens to the Olympic villages after the Olympics leave town? After only a month of use all those glitzy venues shut down – many for good, and are quickly forgotten. The Athens 2004 Olympic village was considered to be in disrepair by 2008. The idyllic Beijing facilities are going the same way. These “ruins” around the world serve as a memory of something that was all too brief. You may be wondering how this Olympic mumbo-jumbo has anything to do with WoW. Well, after six years of gameplay WoW has its own relics of half implemented oft forgotten ideas strewn around the world as well.
