Reposting the same fake patch notes for the umpteenth time.
This was just posted in the official forums and quickly deleted. Can't say if it's real or not.
World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.1.0 (2007-??-??)
The latest patch notes can always be found at http://www.worldofwa...ev/implemented/
--The Black Temple
Originally founded as a Draenei temple, this plot has been conquered and despoiled many times throughout the history of Outland, removing any spiritual grace it may have once held. The Black Temple has been the stage of the Orc Horde's blood curse, a fortress for the then-mortal Ner'zhul, and a prime staging ground for the Burning Legion's campaign of destruction.. Most recently, it has been claimed as home by Illidan, where he and his minions make their bid for power over the remnants of the shattered planet. Now, it is up to you to face the malefic forces of Illidan and his minions in hopes of freeing Outland from chaos and tyranny.
--Battleground Matching System
A player matching system has been put into effect to encourage a more competitive player vs. player environment. The system will work by assigning a â€œgear ratingâ€ to every player for each honorable kill earned, based on the value of the playerâ€™s equipped items at the time. These ratings are averaged over many battles, and will be used by the system to match up players of similar strength in cross-realm battlegrounds.
Equivalent percentages are now displayed for combat ratings on item tooltips.
