Blizzard launched World of Warcraft back in 2004, meaning that last year was the MMO’s 10th anniversary. We’re now in 2015, but Blizzard is still celebrating and has decided to send long-time subscribers to its online world a very special gift in the form of a orc statue, which you can see in full below.

In order to be eligible for the statue Blizzard has identified players who first subscribed within 60 days of WoW’s original launch either in North America (November 23, 2004) or Europe (February 11, 2005). They also have to still be subscribing, meaning 10 years of those $15 a month payments. So the statue is not only thanking them for playing, it’s also for spending around $1,800 for access to the game.

The statue of an orc riding a wolf is actually a small replica of the one Blizzard had placed outside its headquarters in 2009. That one is 12-feet tall. On the bottom of the statue being sent out is a note that the original is where Blizzard’s staff gather to chat and eat, and that it’s a “constant presence.” In the same way, these players are a constant presence due to their loyalty and Blizzard thanks them for it.

It’s unclear how many statues Blizzard is having to send out. If you are eligible then an email will have already made it into your inbox (or spam folder). If one hasn’t appeared by now then you don’t meet the criteria. Maybe that month or two you canceled your subscription back in 20xx disqualified you.
