Blizzard Trademarks "Warlords of Draenor" - WoW Expansion
Blizzard just trademarked "Warlords of Draenor" in New Zealand. It was then registered in Australia shortly after.

  • Computer game software, computer game discs, downloadable computer game software, computer game software downloadable from a global computer network, interactive multimedia computer game program; downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices such as mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs.
  • Entertainment services, namely, providing on-line computer games; providing on-line non-downloadable computer games that may be accessed via a global computer network; providing online news and information in the field of computer games.

It's also worth mentioning that warlordsofdraenor.com was registered a month ago.

I do realize that we had a lot of fun times with trademarks in the past (*cough* Dark Below *cough*) but let's just say that on a personal level I'm pretty confident about this one. I'll leave the speculation up to you guys until Blizzcon.

    Sounds like we'r going back in time trough Cavern of Times to old outland (Draenor) to witness it's downfall in a whole expansion.
    Sounds EPIC to me! And besides, Illidan will be alive again and rockin' in Azeroth!

    Shit to me and hundreds or thousands of others. Point is there is no reason to make a shitty story. Make a good one. One that does not look like an intern made it in 2 hours. Hire an actual writer for it, give him enough money so he doesn't think of it as a vacation.
    Now you are projecting again and you refuse to see that. Believe what you want to.

    Honestly sick of all this "return to outlands" shit. HEY IDIOTS, maybe there is more to Draenor? It's not gonna be a remake of the same outlands zones, do you REALLY think blizzard will make that silt mistake twice. Use your fucking heads before you type.

    But did you experience vanilla and TBC, as a proper raider? Which was inarguably the best time for hardcore raiding. I agree that MoP does a lot of things better than in WotLK, but loses out on every single point when compared against e.g. TBC, which is what a lot of MoP-haters are comparing it to.

    Illidan was in prison until Warcraft 3. Pre-Outland Draenor is during or before Warcraft 2.

    that's funny.
    a couple of days back there was this thread about mmo-c selling out, not delivering leaks and stuff.
    now we get a shitty leak by a 1 post person which gets eited by boub himself, and some hours laters an official thread with the same expansion name pops up.
    seem legit XD

    I like how you speak for this whole community of people who are apparently non-existent. Yes some people hate MoP, but some people hate just about everything. The people who loved MoP outweigh the haters by oh, i don't know, THE MAJORITY OF THE PLAYERBASE! If you want to stand for the gutter-trash that hates everything Blizzard does then so be it, but just let it be said everyone will only see you as the cannon fodder that are blizzard pessimists.

    I mean seriously, you kinds of people show up every year. You complain about the current expansion or state of the game, then when a good change comes, you complain about that, only focusing on it's cons and never the pros, preaching about how the previous expansion and beyond were "the glory days". This has happened for EVERY expansion, yes even BC and Vanilla.

    Good for you, but while I and many others were eager to play in WotLK, Cata and MoP was a joke for us.
    Again, you forget that "many others" doesn't mean the whole playerbase. MoP has some of the best questing storylines of any expansion, it's brought several new mechanics and innovations to the table (such as the world events and exploration of Timeless isle, the sever-wide efforts of Isle of Thunder, the Tillers dailies, or even the current work-in-progress of level scaling) Hell, the base expansion alone has gotten several good reviews on it's many high points and a general opinion on MoP is that it's an amazing expansion for WoW's current players instead of newcomers this time around.

    Despite whatever fantasy you like to believe - MoP is a very well-received expansion, so I advise you to get off your high-horse buddy. Stop acting like your opinion matters more than anyone else's here because - news flash - It doesn't.

    going back in time will make Blizzard's inevitable decision to item and level squish much easier. I just hope they revert my Shadow Priest's uniqueness as well. Might make me come back.

    Yeah, with the way the game has been going, common sense is that would be a very bad move. They won't do that and come Blizzcon (assuming it is the expansion), we'll see for sure what they're going to do. It won't be a rehashed Outland though. Maybe revamped for leveling, but an entire expansion with a revamped Outland? Come on, now people. Stop it. lol

    What. Did WoW playerbase suddenly shrinked to hundreds of thousands ... or did you just not read what I wrote. I didn't say I speak fo whole playerbase. Not even everyone who left. You really sound like many other nay sayers who defeind whatever Blizz does refusing any sort of critique. If you think the storytelling of Cata and Mop is great then it's your opinion. I am voicing my opinion and that is that both expansion are shit story wise. Keep being stubborn and maybe next year you will celebrate 5 million players in WoW (if Blizz is lucky).

    Your wording of your statements spoke and implied that. You either backpedaled or need to word yourself better please. Again you keep calling things shit. How is Blizzard supposed to learn from their *mistakes*? I mean if I worked somewhere and my boss said it's shit. How am I going to improve?



    All the while, I don't want to derail this over a criticism of a criticism. Yes Criticismception.

    Because just like Azeroth, Draenor is an entire planet. There's bound to be tons of floating pieces or entire continents we haven't seen. Just like we keep discovering more of Azeroth and going to different continents mentioned in lore (Northrend, Pandaria, The Maelstrom, formerly cut off regions of EK and Kalimdor) there are likely countless races, cultures, conflicts, factions, cities and environments we have yet to see on Outland.

    Honestly I'm excited for it. I've been wondering what's happened to Outland since BC. What are all the humans living there doing? What happened to the Old God the Arrakoa were trying to summon? Have the draenei taken back the temple of karabor? What have the non-alliance draenei been up to over there? What about the thousands of blood elves that made the pilgrimage to Outland? There are so many unanswered questions that I've been waiting to know for years and I can't wait!

    Sounds like fun. Let's see what info will be shown at BlizzCon, though.

    First off, "thousands of others" could mean everything from one thousand, to a million thousand and second off, if i said "many others doesnt mean the whole playerbase" then obviously im not saying Wow shrunk to the thousands.

    I like how you call me stubborn when you're the bigot here who's refusing to accept or consider anything other people are saying and not listing reasons why you think the story is bad. If you only speak for your self then don't vouch for "hundreds or thousands of others." I also like how you think WoW's playerbase will decrease to zero. Wow was at it's peak in late vanilla to BC so it's easy to deny whatever dumb theory for WoW's playerbase loss you and other people may cook up and realize that WoW's playerbase is only leveling out from the massive popularity it gained before. It's not the apocalypse.

    Wow so the person who everyone was laughing at and saying "fake" might of been right? How interesting, but i sure hope his idea of "Grom being the main antagonist" is wrong
