    I know the wowpedia/wowwiki articles says it's in the crust of Azeroth, but I can't stop thinking that, well, you know, Outland has a backside we have never seen.

    The theory is someone in the art department making the posters could tell a friend who "steals" the trademark; that's why you trademark months rather than weeks in advance.

    Old Gods again

    Maybe if they do a next class it won't be a Demon Hunter, Dark Ranger, or Tinkerer. It will be The Harpooner!

    I'm feeling an Old God as the final boss.

    As for D3, it really doesn't sound like a Diablo title. I've been wrong before, but I mean, I really don't even know what an expansion for Diablo would be about what with the lords of hell being dead and all. :/
    IMO these's a WoW expansion and is about the Nagas... why do i say so? cause we have :
    http://wowpedia.org/Ozumat

    And his title is <Fiend of the Dark Below>

    I'm thinking it's the next WoW expansion. They usually trademark this shit close to Blizzcon anyways.

    Somehow I can't really see this as a Diablo 3 expansion, but I'm not much into Diablo anyway so what do I know.

    WoW related however... Guess it could be either:
    1. Nazjatar, Naga, Azshara, the Great Sea, N'zoth perhaps?
    2. The underground of Azeroth
    3. This Dark Below demon related thing

    I personally go with Nazjatar. If I recall correctly, it's been said that we're going back to Azeroth after MoP (yeah, not sure how that works, since Pandaria is on Azeroth...) and this Dark Below sounds like it's not on Azeroth. So that leaves the sea or the underground and I can't see what they'd really do with the underground. The sea at least got the before mentioned aspects. So my guess is that this could be something related to the Great Sea and Nazjatar. Looking forward to see what it might actually be, possibly at Gamescon. =)

    Because hundreds of people probably already know this title internally, and it'd be easy for someone who is unscrupulous to find out and do something dastardly, like register it out from under you. Blizzard like all companies invests capital in a title.

    I personally loved Vash and having that one underwater zone. But I know people had problems with it similar to how they had problems with Occulus.. 3d fighting is not for everyone. I think Blizzard is well aware of that and would never make an entire zone underwater again.

    I agree, but filing before the announcement is still better than after.

    Wouldn't the title be "Darkness Beneath" then?

    Expect:

    Isles: Broken Isles - Tomb of Sargeras, Kezan, Plunder Isle, Tel Abim, Zandalar
    The Dark Below (Which will be raises from the sea): Drowned Reaches, Gishan Caverns, Mak'ara, Nazjatar, The Rift
    Emerald Dream (Because of it's connection with Maelstrom): Eye of Ysera, Daral'nir, Rift of Aln

    Except for the NDA that the person signed who works in the art department. After an investigation from Private Investigators, the person who trademarked it would be linked to the person in the art department, both would get sued, the person fired, and Blizzard gets the naming rights anyways because Blizzard would opt to settle out of court for the cost of turning over the trademark (and if the person resists, they just sue them literally to hell)

    Yes, and this is why crime doesn't exist in the world, because people always follow the law.

    could both be wow or d3, but sounds more likely for wow

    for wow the n'zoth expansion
    for d3, yet another party with diablo, this time at his place

    I think the point is, at the end of the day, Blizzard would get its trademark - no matter what any insiders tried to do to steal the mark.

    Irrelevant. Someone on the outside could be told, and they have no real link to Blizzard, and they would suddenly be in possession of a trademark. You don't take chances with this when the stakes are millions of dollars, as every expansion is to Blizzard. You simply do things ahead of time.

    If this is all true, this is an initial 1(b) filing. The same thing happened with the term "Mists of Pandaria" months before it was announced. It's time to do the math.

    When exactly is an appropriate time to trademark an expansion name? If this WAS warcraft related, isn't a tad irresponsible to not have a TM for Diablo, with the announcement days away?
