Mhmm... Alright, nice to see other's opinion on this :P but as most of you pointed out, they better bring something with the burning legion to step up their game again.
Unexpected doesnt necesary mean bad. MoP was bad due to the Panda race which everyone (except a few newfag furries) disliked. The asian theme wasnt appreciated either. Other than that MoP was done well, with a new continent several new factions, load of achievements.
Personally i hope its not something unexpected, and that it will be announed soon.
I love the idea of Nerubian Kingdom/Nerubian Empire aswell as The Emerald Dream, hoping for one of those.

i wouldn't mind this at all. Why i often argue against the idea of the Burning Legion expansion is because people who want it, also wants Outland rewamped and i totally oppose to that.
I do think blizzard is going to do BIG things now.
While i do think that it might be to late for the next expansion because they start working on that one even before MoP was out.
So it's hard to believe that next one will be pumped out, but who knows right?
What i would love to see from blizzard to just show how hard they are pumping content:
Next lvl cap: 100.
4 Specs each class.
Burning legion + Sargeras + Kil'Jaeden.
Older lore characters returning.
But ofcourse this is fantasy and blizzard will never do this.
I'm not currently subscribed to wow. If they do another Burning Legion expansion I will be subscribed for the first time since Firelands. If they do anything else I can't see myself having much interest in it.
If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.
I don't know ... when the expansion talk started up again after WotLK everyone said Blizz would never redo the old world to make flying possible, etc. It was all just too much work and things have moved on. Bam - we got Cata. When the expansion talk started up again after Cata's release some people were yelling for the Emerald Dream, others were yelling for Pandaria. Everyone said Emerald Dream would be too difficult (and things have moved on) and Pandaria would never happen because, among other things, it was illegal to depict violence against pandas and since China is such a big part of the subscriber base (well, it's less now than it was apparently, but I digress...) it wouldn't happen. Bam - we got Mists of Pandaria. Long story short? Never say never. At this point I think I'm seeing a strong majority of people thinking the next expansion will be something with the Burning Legion. If that happens I have to honestly say I'll be just a bit disappointed in Blizz for not surprising everyone.
Bump the lvl cap to 100 and end the game. Then start working on Wow2.
This game is stale and they can't keep updating older places with a fresh coat of paint. Time to move on to new tech and new time period and have the current game ancient history in the new one. 1000 years into the future or something with technology battling magic. My 2 cents.
I think that most people are expecting Sargeras and they're probably going to be disappointed.
Like Stannis said, people are most likely expecting Sargeras. But they're probably gonna be dissapointed, cause it's most likely not him.
I propose WoW: Bubble-Bobble Dragons
It's a win-win situation. We have all seen in game the small black, green and blue baby dragons. Think of the potential. I can picture now millions of kids screaming in anticipation to roll and PvP with a baby dragon. Think of the coolness and think of how many 13 year olds this will bring into the game.
What an investment for Blizzard.
I can picture now all the Kung-Fu Panda fanbois in this forum changing their Panda avatar and sigs to baby Bubble Bobble Dragonflight dragons faster than you can say "DT".
MOP is as disjointed with the rest of WoW as it gets. MOP story is... just bad and severely lacking. You admit it has silly elements, I will take it a step further and say it has very little story to offer except silliness.

MoP was expected if you knew anything about lore. And the next one will be something to do with the Burning Legion and I don't think we'll fight Sargeras, maybe hear from him, but not fight him for sure.
Not hard to see them transformed into a new player race and getting a whole expansion centered on them. Hell, there was an entire expansion centered on Kung Fu Pandas. If they can add Kung Fu Pandas and Pokemon to WoW, anything can happen.
Why not Bubble Bobble Dragons. Think of how much the 13 year olds will love them.
I predict the next expansion is probably the final one - not because I'm some Doomsayer spouting more bullshit about the game bleeding subs or what-have-you; I just think they're going to move to a different content model by the time Titan comes out (which is completely feasibly going to be around three years from now - that would give our next expansion a two year life-span, like all of the others before it)
So with that in mind, my thought is definitely that they're going to pull out all of the stops and give a ton of stuff with this expansion, including a showdown with Sargeras in one form or another - we haven't ever even see what he looks like in true form in WoW - so that's motivation enough.
I just hope they add really strong systems changes and I pray for alternate advancement.
Signature dunked by a lame MMO Champ robot.
Everyone thinks legion at this point and I thought that was the case too. Then an interview with blizzard about the future made me think a legion based expansion is further down the road. And after seeing the Warcraft 3 storyline again, it got me thinking even more. There is one major loose end on Azeroth and that is Azshara. Now, in the story, she summoned Sargaras to Azeroth. Also, the tomb of Sargaras is a location we have not been to yet but would be a location we'd perhaps visit. A speculation I was toying with is that perhaps Wrathion provides Azshara with titan stuff from the Throne of Thunder that proves critical to summoning Sargaras. Or perhaps that artifact is used in the tomb of Sargaras to revive his avatar. So, it could be that an Azshara expansion involves the legion invading Azeroth and also tying the loose ends of the story, like N'Zoth (who could be in the Emerald Dream raid/daily hub) and flesh out those islands we've never been to like Kul Tiras and/or possibly have Azshara raise land masses from the sea. In the meantime, we also have legion roaming the planet, diversifying the story. Then after the Azshara story line, we hit the next expansion where we counter attack the legion on Argus. After this point, if WoW is still going by 2018, we might have an expansion about the Pantheon. But then the new MMO will be out and WoW will probably be near it's end.
