Keystroke Bug in Warcraft Programmed by Microsoft                       

Microsoft has purposefully planted a bug in the popular MMORPG “World of Warcraft”. This seems to affect all Windows-based computers, though the entire span of this bug has yet to be determined. Adept player Kwakmeister reported the bug in WoW forums late last night.

--- Quote ---Ok im new to hotkeying so im most likely doing something wrong.

I can hotkey alt to anything but the function keys. I can do alt+f1, f2, f3 but when i get to f4 it crashes my game EVERY TIME! Its annoying because I have to reset all my hotkeys cuz a game crash doesnt save them. Please fix soon!

This does not seem to be an issue with the Warcraft code itself; rather, it seems that the popular OS company Microsoft may be to blame.
The Alt + F4 hotkey can be critical in gaming situations, so it seems that someone is to blame. It is not yet clear if this was an issue surrounding the controversial Windows Vista operating system, or if it was an intentional oversight by Blizzard. Responding to the hostile accusation was Blizzard’s own blue poster Maaven:

Btw Kwakmeister got SC2 Beta Key, because of his extreme skill in founding bugs :D

If i remember correctly, that bug also existed in Windows 95. It's a shame that Microsoft didn't manage to fix this bug in the last 15 years.

It's not a bug, it's a feature.

I never can tell if people on this forum are deliberately retarded, or just make lame jokes

I do love the way the blizz employee responded though, funny shit

I have been a computer guy my whole life. It's a feature. Alt + F4 will close the application that has the active focus, be it a game or a firefox browser.
Funny people  :D
