Also just to add some facts to this thread:
Mists of Pandaria trademark:
Filing Date July 28, 2011
Announcement date October 21, 2011
Release date September 25, 2012
Filing Date June 26, 2009
Annoucement date August 21, 2009
Release date December 7, 2010
Wrath of the Lich King trademark:
Filing Date July 28, 2007
Announcement date August 3, 2007
Release date November 13, 2008
The Burning Crusade trademark:
Filing Date May 3, 2005
Announcement date Oct 28th, 2005
Release date January 16, 2007
Trademark filings have been anywhere from 5 months before Annoucement/Blizzcon to 5 days for the previous expansions.
The timetable this time around is a bit strange. If they announce at Blizzcon like always and spend a whole year from announcement to release, that will mean over 25 months of MoP and probably over a year of 5.4/Siege of Orgrimmar given their current patch release rate. That's not going to happen unless their goal is to kill off many subscriptions once and for all. So what alternatives does that leave us with? Either they announce before Blizzcon (unlikely) or they announce at Blizzcon and almost immediately begin their internal Alpha testing (compared to 4 months after announcing MoP). Which would push the release date to late Spring to mid Summer 2014.

im sure mmo champ will pick up on it before anyone else does since they have "people" who know stuff
MoP was released in 2012. We will see the new expansion this Blizzcon. They always have done that. Why would it change now?
