    The EU trademark isn't fully loaded into the database. This isn't a very useful application:

    since it has been trademarked in several countries now is it somewhat 'official' that WoD is the new expansion?

    That was painful to read.

    The real question is whether it's a Wow expansion or Hearthstone expansion. Excited either way. If it's the latter, then that means we have absolutely no idea what the new expansion will be.

    I think LFR is not easy enough yet
  1. Zyranthian's Avatar
    The "Downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices" still makes me think its some new product, some kind of Warcraft related mobile game so Blizz can start cashing in on the huge, untapped (well, for them) mobile gaming market.

    People keep on debating whether it is official at some point or not. It won't be official until we see official documents or press releases from either Boub or Blizzard. Simple as. As of right now, there are multiple ways this could go. My best guess is that most of this Warlords of Draenor theory-plotting is complete bullshit, fanmade. This does not rule out the possibility of the title being Warlords of Draenor, but i genuinely think the story will be different from all the recent "leaks" - As well as this, i still believe The Dark Below is just as likely to be the next expansion. Blizzard could easily have put the two up against each other to promote discussion / speculation, which i believe has worked out thus far.

    If anything LFR needs to be buffed

    I really don't see how this could be a Hearthstone expansion. The game isn't even officially out yet.

    The point of LFR is to be easy content that someone can jump into and get done.

    so Zah and how could it be a WoW exp? is WoW now a tablet game?
  1. Decisive The Hallowed's Avatar
    Im guessing that Battle.net WoW image of Thrall is just a placeholder untill the next Expac is official announced at Blizzcon.
