According to an aritcle on the main page of Blizzard.com, there is a new feature in World of WarCraft whereby a player can order Chinese take-out without having to get off their ass to go to the phone and order food.

A player simply types "/panda" and an in-game window pops up allowing you to get Chinese delivered to your door, from a chain of restaurants called "Pandaren XPress".

April Fool's joke, or did MMO players just sink to a new low?

April Fools!
We hope you enjoyed our April Fools' events. If you missed them, check out yesterday's jokes:

   * Pandaren Xpress
   * World of Warcraft forums (posters became Murlocs and heard Murloc sounds)
   * World of Warcraft meets Warcraft III

The Blizzard Joke Team will see you again next year.

/pizza has been availabel in Everquest for some time now, so it's probaby not a joke.

And why doesn't mean the players sank to a new low?  Why not the developer?  Why is this sinking at all?  You have problem with food delivery?

I wish my IDE had /pizza or /panda! :-)

You mean it hasn't? You just need to get the EFFP (Eclipse fast food plugin).
