    There's already a Titan speculation thread, and I've already said that this thread needs to refrain from the Titan=Starcraft discussion.

    Micah Whipple is Bashiok so I'm guessing all the other names are also Blizzard Staff members.

    Least they didn't use Flash for the site this time. So tired of my poor browser getting rammed by a flash crash. I welcome our new Blizzard HTML5 Website Overlords!

    Dayton was the writer for Wings of Liberty (and the rest are some of the other lead members of the SC2 team), and from his feed https://twitter.com/CameronDayton/st...23874661769216;
    'Project Blackstone' is a 'StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm' Tease http://shar.es/YbXjs via @sharethis

    So, those spouting off about Titan can now go over to the Titan thread. It's literally a case of this being a teaser for HotS, and not some sort of spinoff hint for another IP.

    Why would they? They've put it up for a reason. It's not like it's some secret that accidentally got leaked. They've set it up specifically to look like it's been "leaked", but they've openly admitted it's a teaser.

    A very interesting and awesome "marketing campaign" at that, nothing to see here? Far from that.

    That strikes me as a bit odd now that you mention it... why would they do it in HTML5?

    ...it's almost as if they WANTED somebody to hack it eventually...

    My totally un-founded knee-jerk theory? Project Blackstone = Blackthorn reboot... especially since it's a Cyberpunk-style game. Would tie in well with a viral site that needed "hacking" to get into it.

    StarCraft related. inside the site it has two emails

You will be the front line in scientific research dedicated to the protection and expansion of our empire of man throughout the Koprulu sector.I am sure that many of you have questions regarding the nature of your selection, your brisk arrival, and the expected duration of your stay. That information will be made available to you when I see fit. Until then, please familiarize yourself with the facilities and get to know your peers. The badge issued to you upon your arrival will trigger automated guidance lights running along the floors, so be sure to keep it on your person at all times. Hallways marked with green lights will indicate the path from your quarters to your designated workspaces. Hallways lined with a flashing yellow light are off limits, and represent potential danger to unauthorized personnel. Hallways lined with a red light should be avoided at all costs, and your presence there will guarantee a speedy execution. Please restrict your movements to the approved areas only.Again, welcome to Project Blackstone. I look forward to making your acquaintance at the barbecue in the (green-lit) social lounge this evening at 1900 hours.

Regardless, I am certain that I am not the only member of this exciting new team with a less-than-favorable opinion of your recruitment methods. I consider myself a patriot and supporter of the current regime, and so a simple invitation from your department would have resulted in my speedy, dutiful, and voluntary acceptance of this new opportunity. It certainly would have been much more cost-effective than sending one of your uncouth ghost agents to haul me through the broken glass of my imported colonial Teredelle windows at some ungodly hour in the night. I didn't even have time to pack a toothbrush.Please consider this a gentle reminder that you can attract more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.

    Not sure if your being sarcastic here. Just in case...

    They obviously wanted someone to hack this. They made it ridiculously easy for anyone who's ever worked with code before. For anyone curious as to how this was solved then read on.

    If you have a look at the source code of the page it read:

    No one puts this into the front end of a webpage. Ever. They certainly wouldn't label it as such. Anyone who's worked with encryption before could probably tell you pretty quickly that this is encrypted hex code. What's more they actually give you the decryption key BLACKSTONE.

    Here is where I got a little stuck due to my lack of mastery with encryption algorithm's, however a quick google search directed me here:

    http://www.fourmilab.ch/javascrypt/javascrypt.html

    All you need to do is post the hex code into the red box, type BLACKSTONE in the yellow box and voila! It's translated. Here is the plain hex code for anyone who is uncertain which part I was referring to:

    A very likely intentional "leak".

    I'm going to go with Titan on this one. The Starcraft things are all misdirection.

    Wow...that looks like a lot of work from Blizzard for... nothing important. Seriously, why write all that plot and spread a team in releasing it, just for hype on something that already have a lot of visibility and attention on other circles?

    Who cares? If they're going this route to hype up the latest SC2 expansion then I say good for them, I enjoyed what little was offered to the community thus far.
