All I could think of was "Is this the land of Patrick Swayze?"
with mists i avoided forums for a while, i watched a bit of the blizzcon coverage, but not of all of it as i didnt want to ruin it all. which was better, as i went into mists not knowing anything other than a new class, and a new race and island, was about all i knew.

Ugh I was just talking to a friend last week about how we might find the name of next expansion any day now. MoP was patented in July and unveiled in November so any time between now and then they would patent the next expac. This is disappointing to me cause I did not really like the premise of MoP and only started playing it 2 weeks ago. I was looking forward to the next expansion to decide my interest to continue playing or not.
Thats an insanely good find OP.
I love it, and i love Blizzard for going the extra mile.
Speculation is more interesting without proof, name trademarks always take the heart out of it.
This find deserves a front page mention btw, mods get on that!
For all of you who didn't know anything about Swaziland it is the tiniest Kingdom on earth, it is fairly underdeveloped despite being so close to South Africa which is one of the developed countries in Africa south of Sahara. After being there I'm not surprised they don't have the trademarks recorded online, in fact I wouldn't be sure they're even recorded electronically i.e. there may just be a paper in a building in a tiny African land. Go get it!
This is the best thread in months.
I'm stunned that Blizzard would go to such length to keep secrets. That's really, really cool actually.

thank you OP for an interesting and intelligent post about blizzard, truly a feat around here too many people posting clueless junk thinking they have information and you read pure dribble, but this was an interesting read.
I'm picturing a tribal village with a chieftain, but I mean if they have a trademark office that's recognized by the US they aren't that primitive.
Apparently you're pretty close.
Also I love their motto as listed on Wikipedia.
They sound pretty serious about protecting that trademark information."Siyinqaba" (Swati)
