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.

    I just hope they'll improve the questing experience. Mop really sucked. The whole continent of Pandaria was like one big uniform continent. Every zone felt practically the same. Just like a China-clone.

    That's why i liked cataclysm way better. Zones like deepholm, vashjir, uldum, ... they all had their unique feeling and story.

    I've read many times people thought cataclysm was a lackbuster because the zones were spread out. But i say it's because it kinda lacked a compelling story. Who cares about an angry dragon named deathwing anyway?

    I can only hope blizz will this time implement both. A compelling story and a very diverse gameworld scenery. Maybe blizz gonna get it right this time?

    this makes me a bit sad because I know most likely there will not be any "snowy" type areas even if they design an "outlands 2", it's just not in the Draenor lore

    Except for the fact that TCG is discontinued and they wouldn't trademark it the way they did lol.

    - Dude, there's nothing to post today.
    - Let's give away some blizzcon tickets.
    - We did that yesterday.
    - Post some GC tweets.
    - He hasn't tweeted anything for like 3 days. Most likely waiting for blizzcon to release anything.
    - Umm... register another fake domain under blizzard?

    And so Warlords of Draenor came to be.

    Warlords of Draenor sounds more like a hearthstone expansion than a WoW expansion.

    Don't we all.
    Just be patient and it will come eventually.

    The name doesn't seem to fit very well.. you'd think they could have thought of a better one. But anyway, the expansion lore should be pimp.. might even have a return to northrend in two years lol

    I don't understand how everyone can lose their shit over non-contexted speculations. Sure, if we were traveling time back to Draenor when everything played out as it did originally, it would only make sense to end things as the known history happened. But we don't know the reasons for traveling to the past planet to form a proper opinion yet. What if the Infinite Dragonflight is involved and we have to stop them? What if the Burning Legion found a way to time travel and we have to stop them? What if some new threat comes along to threaten the known history which can destroy the space-time continuum that needs to be stopped? Or perhaps this whole time travel expansion is a complete fabrication of some overenthusiastic fan?

    Blizzcon is merely weeks away. Why don't we all just wait to form our official opinions then? Sure speculation is fun, but no need bunching our panties just yet.

    I remember the last Blizzcon they said they would introduce Turalyon again but only after MoP. I could see us going back in time for part of the expansion right to see how the 2nd war played out. For reasons you stated. But patches after I can see we are following Turalyon and where he went and it would come back to current time to new zones in current outland. Would be very interesting tbh man. But as you said we shall see, I just cannot wait to see Turalyon again. One of my favs of WC3, hopefully Teron Gorefiend will show up again.

    What about a Warcraft RTS set in the past? Trolls vs. Aqir? Or set during the War of the Ancients?

    With time travel this sounds much like a "Warcraft all-stars" expansion. This is the last big one i say! 90-100 go go

    Time travel crap in WoW works well for side things like Dungeons and scenarios and perhaps one minor quest line to give context on the events happening in the present day for new players (Go see Black Morass, Culling of Stratholme, etc).
    An entire expansion? No, you'd see a lot of people complaining, including myself, about rehashing a story line they started and concluded in one of their previous titles.
    When it comes down to story, I want to see it progress, not do it again. Personally, if I wanted to see it again, I'd go back to WC2. Nostalgia can all be nice, but that wears off quite quickly. As I said, it servers well for a 5 man or two and a few scenarios, not as the main focus for an expansion.

    I never played the WC series of games, so I would love to go back in time and see all those heroes and characters that I hear so much about.

    If they use time travel in the next expansion, I hope it's used to travel to the FUTURE, not the PAST... makes more sense (being more realistic) and doesn't necessarily fuck up the lore. :P

    Honestly I think people are trapped with a very linear mentality. If I were to have a time travel focus in this game it would be for a portion of the expansion not the entire thing. Like be there for part of the 2nd war to deflect time tampering. The Timewalkers were first introduced in the TCG as a faction that guards the timeways basically and has been placed on the Timeless Isle. I can see us trying to find Turalyon by following in his footsteps. A portion of the game is time travel where the rest is in fact not. That is one scenario.

    The other is whole new regions in outland because well in my rants on vent I have told many guildies that there is so much more to outland then we know. That being the case you can take it in so many ways. Regardless the Timewalkers would be a way for players to justify going through time more often to protect it. Or perhaps we can all get a police box and be happy about that to X'D

    It appears many people seem to have little imagination as far as the potential of WoD goes. If you have, say, a timespan of 100 or 200 years during which a couple of very important historical events took place (which our friend Wrathion wants to manipulate), then your best bet is to tell that story on a "timeless", intact planet Draenor ("timeless" in the sense of seamless time traveling on that planet). Add to that the all new character models and a big lineup of WarCraft icons like Doomhammer, Grom, Blackhand, Cho'gall, Ner'zhul, Alleria, Turalyon, Illidan, Velen and what not, and you probably get the most kickass WoW expansion to date.

    This isn't for the next expansion. If you do a little research into the previous expansion trademarks they all include this under their class 9

    Computer game software and related instruction manuals and guides sold together as a unit; downloadable computer game software; interactive multimedia computer game program; mousepads
    They also include nothing about mobile devices, which this one appears to rely on quite a bit. Boub doesn't say it's an expansion, people just assumed that, to me it just sounds like he's confident it's blizzard posting the trademark and nothing more.

    This looks like a new mobile app of some sort, maybe a hearthstone expansion, but hearthstone doesn't include anything related to mobile applications in trademark either.

    I can't currently post the trademarks myself, but I've looked them both up in their original posts on mmo-champion.
