WoW Insider’s Best of 2006 awards: Server, Class, and Guild

I pwn j00.The votes are in and WoW Insider has announced the first batch of winners for their Best of 2006 awards. The awards to be given out are Server of the Year, Class of the Year, and Guild of the Year. Without further ado, let’s send in the winners!

Server of the Year: Medivh
One of the things that World of Warcraft players will remember most about 2006 will be that it was the year when both Horde and Alliance set aside their differences and worked together for a common cause: opening the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. This groundbreaking world event culminated with the Gates being opened for the first time ever by Medivh way back on January 23. Medivh gets the Server of the Year award “for finishing first, dealing with it all, and working hard together as a server.”

Class of the Year: Warlocks
Here’s what WoW Insider had to say about one of the most heavily-talked about character classes this year:

For sheer playing power, players agree: there’s nothing like a Warlock. DoTs may not be as flashy as a Mage’s spells, and demon pets aren’t always as versatile as a Hunter’s, but that darn Death Coil gets us every time. And since they added the Felguard to the Demonology tree, fighting a Warlock in PVP is like fighting a Warrior and a Mage at the same time. Throw in Banish, a spell that’s just plain essential to most PVE raids, and Warlocks win Class of the Year for 2006.”


Guild of the Year: Death and Taxes

Apart from all of the world firsts that Death and Taxes chalked up to their name, no other guild made Kel’Thuzad so scared he ran away. Thrice. Enough said.

More winners will be announced this week, including those for Player of the Year and Best (and Worst) Blizzard Move of the Year.
