    I'm on the fence about this, I'd say it's about 50/50 chance. My hope is that it's real, though.

    i think they would, i mean isnt the whole website to hype/tease us for the actual name realease of the expac at gamescom? cuz really it does seem pointless to put it up there other than for hyping means, but hey i could be wrong :3

    Yeah I agree, what is funny is that he was able to post alpha pics for WOTLK but he got a slap on the wrist for Cata. There is really no difference.

    Not enough common sense in this thread.
    A fact "Sea Hag Lovers" seem to overlook all together.

    See i can mock people who don't want a legion xpac just like they mock those that do.

    You don't spend that kind of money on setting up an expectation for months, just to have people get let down by denying their hype.
    Isn't it ironic that, Wrathion has been used to the same effect with his talk of "Burning Legion" all MoP?

Because that's now many would see it right now. You BC-Babies may not... but the others here won't.

    "BC-babies" "Demon Lovers" "Thousands who are LOVING the..." Yeah, you don't sound biased at all...I mean, I've yet to see thousands of people who want a shit underwater expansion, with a lackluster female "Big bad" much less thousands of people that even like the extra movement axis on these forums, this sounds like the ramblings of an "Azshara idiot" to be honest.

    You're right mvallas, there is no advantage for a "hoax" that's why it has to be the Burning Legion, Wrathion said so.

    When Blizzcon Comes...

    and they reveal "The Dark Below"

    Come back to this thread and ask yourself one question:

    "...why did I believe such a transparent trick of that Corgi trademark had ANYTHING to do with denying a fully-paid Trademark by Blizz? And why would Blizz even deliberately try to play a trick on their audience in the first place?"

    _______

    After reading this thread, and the serious amount of gullible frustrated inexperienced desperate people here - all I know is that when they reveal "The Dark Below" at Blizzcon, I'm going to sit here - eat popcorn - and lovingly taunt and poke fun at each and everyone of you.

    I did it with Cataclysm
    I did it with Mists of Pandaria
    I'm going to do it again with The Dark Below
    And I will keep doing it... until you learn. ^_^

    I'm happy it was a hoax.

    The Dark Below sounded more D3'ish vs wow and when D3 was "announced" Dark Below sounded...bleh tbh for a title. I'm looking forward to actual WoW name

    If it is legit, the Dark Below could make sense. Last Blizzcon they talked about N'Zoth, the Old God who corrupted Deathwing, who was involved in the Vashj'ir incident, and who was controlling the various tentacles and minions in zones throughout Azeroth. One that comes to mind is in Stonetalon, the Northwest corner, where the Alliance base is, or was.

    N'Zoth is supposedly THE Old God, of Old Gods. He's rumored to be the one corrupting the Emerald Dream, aka the Nightmare. So, if you break down the new title, it could make sense that N'Zoth is the big bad of the coming xpac.

    We have the title "The Dark Below". So if we just take "dark", we can guess The Nightmare, evil, lack of light. And Below, we get underground, underwater, below the surface of Azeroth. It was speculated that N'Zoth was so huge, that his prison was in the center of Azeroth.

    What we do know of Old Gods and their prisons, is that they were always imprisoned in large temple-like structures. C'thun was in Ahn'Qiraj, and managed to corrupt his captors, and getting an army built in his name. Yogg Saron's prison was in Ulduar. And we remember how that went. The Titans trapped these Old Gods in these temples, limiting their power greatly, but didn't anticipate their power of telepathy, and corrupting lesser beings with their minds.

    If you look at Vashj'ir, mainly the temple area, it was pretty big, and prior to becoming evil, Queen Azshara ruled from her palace there. Her current location is unknown, but one would guess that she's still in her underwater temple. When the city sank, Queen Azshara made a pact with the Old Gods (presumably N'Zoth), to spare the lives of herself and her people, and in exchange, she would worship and do the bidding of, the Old Gods. They were cursed with becoming Naga (revealed by Lady Vashj to Kael'thas in one of the WC games), and they mostly dwell underwater or on the various shorelines.

    So this being said, we could be going back to dealing with Queen Azshara, the Naga threat, and the plane of water being in control by the Queen and her army of Naga and faceless ones. Blizzard originally scrapped the Abyssal Depths dungeon/raid, and went forward with Cataclysm. Maybe it was just set aside for later. Deathwing after all, was more of an imminent threat, and we had to deal with him right away, or all of Azeroth would have been destroyed. There wasn't much time after that either, because the war between the Alliance and the Horde started back up, and both factions were no longer able to work together to fight a common enemy (similar to in previous expansions when dealing with Illidan, KJ, Yogg Saron, or Arthas). With the war ending, or at last coming to an armistice, both sides are able to focus less on one another, and deal with the remaining evil(s) in Azeroth.

    I'm just applying the title to what I know of what's going on in the past. It could be something completely different. Wrathion did talk about the Burning Legion returning. However, he doesn't have the ability to see the future, he's just guessing for all we know. He has no way of knowing what's to come. After all, since when did the Black Dragonflight have the gift of foresight?

    Wrathion wanted the war between the Horde and the Alliance, and he wasn't to happy when Varian made the right decision in liberating the Horde from Garrosh. He realized that Garrosh's Horde were bad, but the Horde as a whole, weren't to blame for the atrocities that Garrosh committed. They aren't going to be pals and sit down for drinks at the World's End Tavern, but they can focus on other things now.

    But, Wrathion was quite pissed at that. Why he sided with the Alliance and wanting them to completely conquer the Horde, I don't know. But, pushing both factions to fight one another, and eventually take down Garrosh, and then being upset because the war stopped there, doesn't seem to be a part of "all of this is to fight the Burning Legion". If the Burning Legion were truly coming, then Wrathion would have actually wanted the war to stop, by preventing the fighting, or at least getting both sides to see that Garrosh was corrupt, and to take him down in order for the Horde to have a leader who would be just and infallible, like Thrall, and join forces with the Alliance to stop the coming Burning Legion threat. I remember when I was questing for the first time on an Alliance character in Hellfire Peninsula, one of the quests said that the Alliance considered the Horde as allies in this war. Though they still had their old habits, they worked together to stop the problems at hand.

    But why would Boub dismiss TBD as a hoax? You'd think MMOC would loose quite a bit of credibility after this.

    Oh no you are gonna make fun of us if we are wrong. Well the question is what if you are wrong like you have been about reading the front page saying it didn't say anything about the dark below being a hoax..........when it did.

    Bibi would of never posted if he wasn't sure, he was obviously slapped on the wrist again by Blizzard like what happen with Cata Alpha. They sent in another Red Herring.

    And that's the VERY reason why I wrote MARKETING. In-game storyline stuff is NOT a precursor to next expansion.

    They revealed Deathwing was alive in BC, at Netherwing post. Did he return in Wrath?
    They revealed Azshara/N'zoth were around, and dropped major hints of their undersea domain in the Dark Below in Cataclysm, were they the next bosses?

    Again... MARKETING. You don't Trademark something so close to Blizzcon to dash people against the rocks.

    Show me where I'm wrong please. The only thing wrong was the Corgi thing. ^_^

    EDIT: Just saw it now... " Sorry guys, going to call the whole The Dark Below thing a hoax." - nope... He said the SAME THING when Blizz did the masks when they did Cataclysm. I don't believe him for ONE SECOND.

    And I'd be MORE than happy to smile and say "I was wrong" on that day if proven to be. Please remind me on that day if I'm wrong... but I know I won't be. ^_^

    And my evidence? Just watch for yourself... there won't be ANY OTHER trademarks from now until Blizzcon filed. So... how do they reveal something without a trademark first?
