    Because what Blizzard says should sometimes be taken with a grain of salt...

    http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/08/31/to...dly-overhyped/

    From the article:

    Speculation swirled recently regarding Blizzard's decision to trademark "Mists of Pandaria," as many thought it may indicate the name of the next World of Warcraft expansion. Pandaria, in Warcraft lore, refers to the home of the Pandaren, basically humanoid war pandas you may remember making an appearance as neutral heroes in Warcraft III. Chilton said the speculation was, "wildly overhyped." He added, "if you look at traditionally how we've handled that race it's been in those secondary products because we haven't realized it in the world. Most of the time when we do anything panda-related it's going to be a comic book or a figurine or something like that."

    Put simply, because people took Blizzard's usual non-commital stance on answering whether or not Mists of Pandaria was the name of the expansion as a 100 percent iron clad promise that it wasn't.

    You know, the same old sensationalist misrepresentation of statements from Blizzard that we have been seeing for years.

    It was deliberately misleading; he could have said "no comment" or something to that nature, but he didn't.

    But nowhere did he state that it wasn't the title.

    Blizzard has done a 180 on things they've said many times. I wouldn't be surprised if this was another one.

    It doesn't matter because it was still misleading.

    Blizzard has been often accused of saying they would never do things they wound up doing, but accusers very rarely produce any evidence to prove it and when they do it's usually worded ''we have no plans at this time''.

    I like how you're no longer calling it a flat out lie anymore.

    Actually no, it still meets the definition of a lie, I was just being more polite this time.

    We'll see.

    I'd actually prefer something completely new (assuming it's done well of course) than a spinoff of existing concepts...although as a wow player I think the time has come for a wow2 with major graphics upgrades, the game is looking dated even with the new expansion.

    The intent was misleading. The statement was true.

    Got my fingers crossed for World of Steamcraft (steampunk) MMO. I will play in a second. If it's WODiablocraft or WOStarcraft, I will pass.

    Haha.

    If it's WoW-related I'm hoping for realistic graphics aka Skyrim quality or better...steampunk would be awesome tho, not going to lie...

    There is a rumour and theory going around that Blizzard using the "New IP" tag for their upcoming MMO is a bit misleading and a bit vague. They have not really defined it themselves here. I mean they are only saying it to keep people interested in the news and the MMO. I mean WoW was a new IP too for Blizzard after Warcraft.

    So it isn't far fetched to think that their upcoming MMO isn't based in the Starcraft universe. It may not be set in the current timeline and that is where I feel Blizzard is playing with the words " New IP".

    I mean Blizzard have done this, i.e mislead the players numerous times before as well.

    I don't really know what is with Mods on this forum or you in particular. But whenever you guys get caught out you some how feel its time to stay on topic when you are the ones actually staying off topic. I clearly remember you from the Skyrim forums and how you contradicted everything about the upcoming TES MMO but still feel like being forced to level alts. You have yet to explain or follow up what you meant and I am still waiting on your answer.

    Stay on topic. If you have issues with moderators/moderation, bring it up with the moderators themselves (PM me if you'd like) or PM Sunshine/Boubouille. Forum threads are not the place for this kind of discussion. -Edge

    i think we should get less excited for titan. there are a few articles that were saying that titan is more casual focused then wow or has a broader audience then wow. well to me any game that tries to do things like this never turn out good. good games are games that try to be good not to try and get mass appeal (usually)

    Agree. Think Starcraft would lend itself much more for a spinoff, maybe an mmo. They already had a plan in the past: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StarCraft:_Ghost

    I think they pulled Ghost back because they wanted to expand on the idea. Make it an mmo.

    WoW with realistic graphics? Nah. WoW with Skyrim graphics? What, worse than current? No thanks.

    A complete graphics and engine overhaul while still retaining the WoW feel? I'm all for it, but I don't think Blizzard is doing that.
    I'm not a native English speaker, and yet, I don't suck at English. The argument "English is not my mother tongue" doesn't actually give you an excuse to do so.

    I hope not. WoW is already steampunk. But if it has to be, I hope there wouldn't be magic at least. Fantasy and steampunk don't really mix well in my opinion. I have nothing against Victorian age or alternate future, darker, bleaker steampunk game. But elves, dorfs, magic and steampunk just bring it too close to WoW.
