Rupture is a new company started by power entrepreneur Shawn Fanning and investor Ron Conway. After working together with the original Napster and then with music distributor Snocap, the two have begun work on Rupture, a social network for MMORPGs; primarily for World of WarCraft (WOW) gamers.
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.
