sneaky blizzard, filing it in a country that no one has ever heard of!

This is just awesome. The lengths Blizz is willing to go to keep things secret. Love it!
I'm going to guess we'll never find out about the new expansion before it's ready to unveil at Blizzcon though, which is a shame.
Guys. I want the countries of all the head-staff at blizzard, and their families.
I'm pulling an all nighter, boys
i will check every country's trademark websites 8c
edit: this looked better in caps D:
Well, I guess the fact that the goverment of Swaziland does not have an online database was convenient.
I am not well versed in how this patenting process is done, but most likely the other patents will be sneaked in from countries which also lack such online accessibility.
Dunno if they would go with the same route for Exp 5, but I think if they indeed went with outside records for trademarks, we very well not hear anything until Blizzcon, or Gamescom if you're hopefull.
Well seeing how fast everybody and their brother knew about Mists, I don't blame them. In fact, I kind of like being surprised by new announcements like expansions and stuff, I'd prefer not to know so far in advance to tell you the truth, it kind of kills the fun and suspense.

Well, this doesn't surprise me, since Blizzard is a Delaware corporation.
Interesting ! Thanks for sharing
Much as I like surprises, I love speculation much, MUCH more. One of my favourite days being on this forum was the night the Mists trademark was found and we spend all night chatting and specualting and digging around for stuff that would tell us more. It was glorious. The period after that, spending time specualting and arguing about the possibilities of Pandaren as a playable race and what class if any was going to be in the game were awesome too. I LOVE chatting about stuff like that.
So much as I love surprises, I hope some enterprising person finds the trademark somewhere about a month before Blizzcon, so I can revel in the speculation again, and wonder about the endless possibilities of what it could mean.
