Rupture was an online destination connecting gamers and allowing them to share gaming experiences, events, challenges, and achievements. The site was founded by Shawn Fanning and investor Ron Conway. After working together with the original Napster and then with music distributor Snocap, the two began work on Rupture, a social network for MMORPGs; primarily for World of WarCraft (WOW) gamers.
The company was based in San Francisco, California. Parent company ThreeSF, Inc., was acquired by Electronic Arts on May 28, 2008.
Rupture works through an add on or software download that grabs your information from WOW. Character names, stats, profiles and other information is taken directly from your account and put up on your Rupture profile. Rankings and points are dynamic and change as your game play improves or suffers.
