    yep, if you enter wrongly again it says:

    RESPONSE 37M DEPLOYED

    and you cannot enter a password anymore
    My signature was too big, so now I use this one.

    World of Starcraft?takes place after the current end of the Starcraft saga (after the conclusion of Legacy of the Void). Most likely MANY years after it, but who knows...Some remote location where the experiments on Zerg / Protoss specimens by Terran scientists have been going on undisturbed for ages, and now all hell is ready to break loose...Most likely, the above is just my overactive imagination laced with an unhealthy dose of Wishful Thinking .

    But it's a cool SC2 expac marketing.

    There's no way, in my opinion, they would release a Starcraft MMO while SC2 is active. This is just to hype up HotS.

    Esteemed Colleagues:
    Your digital correspondence is now locked down. Please run further communication through the approved private channels, and limit your messages to topics of pertinent research and findings. Upon further consideration, I have decided to cancel this evening's soiree so that we can get right to work.

    We have been able to acquire several specimens of larval zerg for our first procedure. I had hoped to present them with some surprise and fanfare at the barbecue by delivering them in a serving bowl at the center table; that is the sort of humor and friendly levity that I had wished to engender in our team. But now that opportunity has been soured by this unfortunate display of ill spirits by Dr. Ayers. I ask you all to consider how quickly one negative comment can ruin things for everybody.

    Well, what's done is done. Our xenospecialists will find the larvae sterilized and prepared for dissection in Biolab 2. Previous studies have uncovered some surprising similarities between the zerg larva's pluripotent cellular structures and our own embryonic stem cells. We are interested in finding a means to both arrest the obligatory asymmetric replication (the astounding healing factor) of the zerg, and adapt it (in some measure) for our Dominion soldiers. I would invite other members of the research staff to observe the dissection and participate in any post-mortem discussions regarding analysis and possible weaponization of what we uncover.
    Seems entirely plausible that this is just a launch site for HotS, considering that the Zerg have probably been pushed back to the brink since there will be factions of them with new queens. Kerrigan apparently is going to try and retake control over the whole Zerg even as a human.

    Also, apparently the site is linked to several twitter accounts that give some more info.

    Don't have to release it now, can just as well release it after they released Legacy of the Void, but I also think it's mainly promo for HotS.

    It looks like an RP event or something. Also it looks like an inn of some sorts.

    It's just a viral marketing campaign. I mean a very, very cool marketing campaign, but if you think it's an announcement for a new IP or MMO you're just getting your hopes up for nothing. Just follow the twitter accounts if you want to see the story unfold.

    Same thing for Promethius the movie.

    It's probably just an ARG, although "just an ARG" is nothing insignificant at all. I participated in all of The Secret World's pre-launch ARGs and they were absolutely mind-blowing. Blizzard has the resources to do something awesome here.

    TSW's ARGs, and ARGs in general, make me feel stupid. I'm not half the genius all my years of playing cyberpunk games lead me to believe!

    God some of TSW's were brutal. I remember cracking a clue in the first "They Are Coming Back" ARG and I felt like a fucking prodigy. Then I systematically was stomped into the ground for the rest of that ARG. Good times.

    It is a "typical" marketing campaign, there are some companies specializing in that, blizz likes this kind of compagins, so, enjoy it, it is about SC2 expansion.

    I hate to tell you that you are the not the first person to report this. I'm afraid you are on of the few victims that now has Blackstone's new Zerg Virus on your computer. I don't expect you to be able to post anymore after this, as nanobots will now create living zerg inside your computer and unleash their eggs into your fingers which will kill you in about 3.5 hours.

    It's probably the best marketing I've ever seen. Killing real people with aliens.

    I'm totally kidding, sucks you can't access it. Keep trying!

    Holy, freaking, crap!

    Edit: The password is said to be Y7_$0>0k_3<$m


    The website seems to contain some manner of pre-launch event to HotS. As you enter the password you're able to currently read three messages sent between two characters in a covert research facility that seems to have something to do with research on zerg.
    Pretty sure this is some kind of marketing campaign for their "Project Titant" MMO. Blizzard can't avoid having all the attention. With The Elder Scrolls Online hogging the lime recently, Blizzard needs to get their shit out too. Isn't it coincidental that the same day ZMO release their Alliance cinematic, Blizzard goes ahead and releases their SC2 cinematic?

    I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard is actually shitting themselves over TES.
