    Is anyone else seeing Kosak's tweets about The Dark Below?

    He's not even trying to deny it.

    It sounds like, if anything, he's hinting at the trademark being legit.

    He might be trolling or just messing with people but, yeah.

    Obviously he said he's trolling in the first one, though. :P

    For the people that said that this trademark thing never showed up for Hearthstone:

    There is nothing in the search about the Dark Below. Still reserving judgement as it may possibly be subject to a few days processing time or whatever before it shows up in the search?

    The most recent filing for Blizzard is from July 17th for "Cute But Deadly" paper items, toys, pajamas... kids stuff?

    http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield...810:e3hkel.3.1

    The formatting of all these exactly matches the Dark Below, though, unlike the known hoaxes. Possible the Dark Below hoaxer was just better at details, though.
    The trademark for Reaper of Souls doesn't exist, either. Yet Blizz touts it as the D3 expansion and calls it trademarked on the D3 site.

    The trademark exists in a foreign country, possibly Swaziland, where they obtain a 6-month priority should they seek to move that trademark into the US.

    It's possible Boub got a leaked screenshot of the US Priority filing, was told to release it in mid september, and let it go early.

    It's also possible TDB is a hoax sent from a fake email to Boub.

    But there is no concrete proof to say TDB is fake at this time.

    Do you mean the series tweets where he adds "not really, I'm trolling"? How the hell do you get a hint of it being legit out of that?

    that's concerning. Usually Blizz does try to deny expansions if they're leaked early.

    The second tweet not the first.

    I dunno. I just find it weird he'd be talking about it and not just ignoring it if it wasn't legit.

    Yeah but as @dokhidamo said, Blizzard normally just deny when something is fake without thinking it twice

    Pretty much but they usually go out of their way to deny it.

    Course I might be wrong but, hey, there's a possibility it's still real.

    They deny it: It's real
    They jokingly confirm it: It's real

    Here's my current belief. Anything in here that makes a claim about someone is entirely my speculation, ok?

    Step 1: A Blizzard lawyer is told he has to enter the trademark on a certain day, not before, because it wil show up.
    Step 2: The lawyer types it all up in a form, entirely unaware that the unsubmitted form can be accessed.
    Step 3: Someone sees that, forwards it to Boub.
    Step 4: Boub checks with sources who don't deny it.
    Step 5: Someone else points out that anyone can get something to that state, with Corgi's Unleased.
    Step 6: Boub steps back because now it's only his sources not denying stuff, not an actual trademark that has been pushed through.


    I realize this may be more of a stretch for those that want to assume the default case:
    Step 1: Trollguy makes The Dark Below, sends it to boub
    Step 2: Boub is fooled, puts up headline
    Step 3: Trollguy shares troll with Corgi one


    Yea yea, that one is simpler.



    But I don't buy it. I remain entirely convinced that then next WoW expac is The Dark Below, and that the unfilled trademark form is a practice run or real attempt that is visible only through the technical incompetence of a lawyer. And lawyers are FAMOUS for their technical incompetence!

    @Verain Your theory sounds more likely than the second one, imo. The mmoc guys have been doing this stuff for a long time. They don't make annoucnements without confirming stuff.

    Why would they try to trademark their expansion just before releasing the expansion? Company like blizzard surely have their trademarks secured years before release. It is fake.

    You have a funny idea of "just before release"
