annual pass mark 2 announced at blizzcon, gives beta access which starts within a week of it being announced
Does anyone really want another expansion? Most people I know seem to have gotten completely bored out of their minds with the franchise during the current expansion... It starts to feel more and more like they should take the old horse behind back and put it down before it starts suffering too hard from age... I personally couldn't care less anymore if another expansion gets launched. I was thrilled for Mists of Pandaria, but that's probably going to be the last expansion I buy for this dated game...
there is a 5.5 patch slated after 5.4, so a few months after that next expansion or at least the pre-release 6.0 patch for another month. They called whats happening in the Barrens a "world event" a few times.

I'll buy the expansion but unfortunately my playstyle has devolved over the years. My account is currently inactive and will remain that way until the new expansion comes out. I have no interest in gearing up but rather complete each raid a few times and experience the lore and then quit. I don't resub for smaller patches either. I played at the beginning of MoP and resubbed for Throne of Thunder. No interest in the upcoming raids like Siege of Ogrimmar etc so next time back will be X5.

I'm going to laugh loudly when the new expansion isn't Burning Legion themed.
what is surprising how they managed to keep no leaks happening so far, usually we always get some hints before expansions, but now - nothing!
Well they will most likely do a Epilogue after the fall of Garrosh, maybe a quest line for the new warchief, maybe some soul searching for a new Warchief, but something like that, while the next expansion gets beta tested.
I also see one of the big announcements being the enw player models tbh. Blizzcon seems a good time to unleash that reveal
I think they won't announce X5 at Blizzcon but a few weeks before or after 5.4 release (August). Beta should start 1 Month after that. At Blizzcon they will show some progress of the Expansion. All that leads to a release in Feb-March 2014
So my guess on next expansion:
*Legion invades Azeroth for a pre-event.
*Level cap is 95.
*2 new races (my personal guess/hope is broken (ally) and ogre (horde))
*New continent is not located on Azeroth. Either another planet, or a moon of Azeroth. It wont' be Argus.
*Some new features to help convince people to level alts again (a feature like ToR's legacy system would be cool)
For those of you wondering what happened to Ethereal and Demon Hunter, I pushed Argus back to being 95-100 in Expansion VI with that race/class.
Unsubscribed 3/10/2014 - 8/14/2014.
Beware the claims of yearly expansions. It's not more hype more often, it's paying more for less. Fewer tiers, no more new levels, no more new races/classes, but an ever-increasing price tag....
But seriously, this guy is right, it will be dark folks and this is definitely what is needed for the next step.

Anyone like the name Destruction of Azeroth to? Oh and I really want the next expansion to feature the new models that Blizzard promised and maybe new races to as well, but it would be good to to have a expansion to make everything go well and probably just keep everything up to date with the new exp.
PM me for my Friend Code, Battletag, ETC...
I'm pretty sure everyone is going to agree that the playerbase has shrunk a lot lately.
Also, you just need to accept the fact that many people still enjoy the game and still play the game. Just because you don't and your group of friends don't doesn't mean the game isn't for others. Opinions
Presumably they'll announce at Blizzcon because otherwise the expansion will be out before the next one.
