There were some things that happened in the virtual world of WoW that still make me grin, though. Recently some players exploited flaw in the game and started wiping out the entire population of all the major cities, player and non-player alike. There are some YouTube videos on it.
Blizzard added the Jenkins achievement to commemorate that occurrence, acknowledging the exploits of some of the in-game adventurers. They also added a card to their card game.
Blizzard is noticeably silent, however, on the plague that swept through the entire World of Warcraft realms. Like a true pandemic, it was unintentional and swept through the worlds, leaving nothing but ghost towns.

I still laugh about it.
