    Filing a trademark for Hearthstone after it was announced is discouraging news for us looking for the next expansion's trademark before it is formally announced.

    Aaaand watch it come back and burn them in the ass when they anounce the expansion without having filed the trademark and then someone snags the trademark.

    But it could mean that the expansion name is something they have trademarked already.

    Well, I fixed the thread title to be more accurate by adding 'for Hearthstone', then read through the thread and rather than infract nearly everyone for spam, trolling, derailment or other things have decided to simply close it. Really, there's nothing to talk about here and if someone thinks there is, go and post up a thread in the Hearthstone forums.

    If you have anything to contribute to a thread topic, please do so. Discussing moderation or calling out specific people is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Please report problem posts. If anyone is unclear about the rules please read our FAQ. Thanks.
