In late 2010, MMOCraze (www.mmocraze.com) partnered up with ChangYou to do a giveaway to further promote itself as a brand new media site in the MMO gaming community. Vowing to provide gaming news that no other gaming site would have the courage to post up. 3 years later, things have changed and MMOCraze has decided to rebrand itself in a whole new way: taking advantage of user-generated content.
