there won't be a tier after SoO. There will be two PvP seasons for the duration of the SoO tier which will be the last one for this expansion. So about 8-12 months of SoO and 2 pvp seasons will be patch 5.4.

Not that I'm saying they *can't* do anything with it, it just seems very unlikely that they will.
possible after we defeat all of the major sha's the old god will get enough of his mind back to do something, unless i'm not thinking clearly
i do remember blizzard saying they wanted to make an ulduar quality raid(and ulduar did have an old god in it)
so...we help the old god get it's mind back...then it begins sending eye stalks out of it's supermassive prison, which turns into the raid zone?
(just saying eye stalks lol) then it takes over the mind of a important lore figure in MoP to go to it's prisons entrance, someone with a lot of power, who is used to resisting the Sha(seperate underpowered parts of the old gods mind tricks)
but when faced with a complete old god trying to make people open it's door?!?
also it might have something to do with what horde found in vale when they made a crater?(might be more to it than it seems...)
the sha of pride might be an actual thing...we beat it(maybe on heroic) and boom old god comes out as heroic only boss?
but as far as pvp gear being named after a pve boss?
idk to many "what ifs" to make for a real discussion, but it's fun to think about what "could be possible"
Still I cry, tears like pouring rain, Innocent is my lurid pain.
The last blue interview said they weren't even sure if they were going to do a 5.5 before the expansion, definitely won't see another raid tier / 5.6.
