    Your reasoning doesn't quite make sense to me. You are saying that Blizzard WANTS the name to leak. Well then, tell me why they wouldn't simpy announce the name when they want the leak to happen, instead of praying that the community leaks it properly.

    The reason Blizzard doesn't want the leak to happen is that they, like every other company, want to control the information flow themselves. the WHEN and HOW, in particular. The case of the poor reception of the Mists of Pandaria name should explain why. Basically Blizzard has had to spend the entire expansion fighting against a community backlash formed around the idea that "pandas" are childish and cuddly and utterly non-badass, and overall it's been a pretty uphill battle. Because the notions about "pandas" was formed without Blizzard being able to "sell the story" around it.

    Again, in Blizz' eyes, it is crucial that they can control when the information is released, and that the information is packaged in a way that doesn't lead t the expansion starting off in a backlash PR nightmare even before it is announced, like happened with MoP.

    Legion or not, this would be true of every xpac theme. As much as a legion theme may be popular with you, and many others, I am sure a lot of people would be able to find things to ragequit over if they are just given a name.

    Fairly old post, but... would DPS go around with T-Shirt Cannons while Tanks wore hoodies and Healers carried sewing kits and tried to be as efficient as possible patching everything up without running out of thread?
    Roll the bones!

    Hmm looks like we're waiting for blizzcon for the announcement. Smart blizz keeping secret OR imo they will file the trademark after the release of 5.4

    The only thing I want is a trademark, before other stuff gets released.

    I'm so baffled by the amount of information and dis-information I just stopped caring and I'll wait for an official release.

    So instead of just letting it die, you bumped it to the front page?

    We will find out Friday what is true and what is not.

    And if it was not this thread it would be another, likely containing at least 1 vague leak perhaps in the form of a blurry and barely legible Powerpoint slide.
    What difference does it make, the official announcement will at least lay that discussion to rest, and open a whole new can of worms with others.

    I don't believe Warlords of Draenor is the next expac. Maybe a side Warcraft project Blizzard is working on, but not a full-blown expansion. I mean c'mon on.
