    You're right they probably wouldn't; however, for my theory to be true all they had to do was fill out a few forms.

    True, I'm not sure how expensive it is to have a lawyer fill out and submit trademark apps.

    I dunno, they would have lawyers on retainer so I'd think they'd be paid the same regardless of a little additional workload. Even if they were, I doubt it would take more than an hour or two for a competent trademark lawyer to fill out 2 US trademark apps and submit 1 app to the OHIM, especially when you consider it all would have been done through e-filing.

    Also, keep in mind that even if it cost them say 2k this marketing ploy would only need to sell 50 more Virtual Tickets to break even, which I don't think is a huge risk.

    Yea but we don't no how it cost in overseas to trade mark and lawyer fees


    But if blizz is looking to hype up the game there going the right way. I was very against the dark below but maybe it can add some new flavor like mist did. I'm just here to play a game really I just love to play and explorer tho I'd love to get off world for once. I'll be happy for something new and new place tho I hope they leave dream alone.

    Lame name on itself, but the abbrev 'HotS' is convenient.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    Like many others, I find the name quite cheesy.

    I liked "The Dark Below", but that doesn't help if the theme doesn't fit the name .

    Looking forward to see what the next expansion is.

    And then a shadow fell.

    It was vast and empty and swallowed all light that entered it. Velen knew it would be all
    consuming until, at last, it would turn and devour itself, endlessly gnawing on nothing in the
    Great Dark Beyond, removing all meaning from the universe, from the most heart-breaking
    sonata to the most arresting sunset. It was too terrible to see, to comprehend, and yet the
    army headed straight for it. And the light began to fade...

    Hum, it's filed as Nice classes 9, 16 and 41. None of the WoW expansions are 16.

    For the record, 16 is
    Printed matter, namely, Comic books, strategy guides, trading cards, manuals for computer games, coloring books, adhesive stickers, rub-on transfers, notebooks, stationery-type portfolios, posters, greeting cards, calendars, instructional leaflets, advertisement boards of paper or cardboard, catalogues, photographs, art prints.
    Weird. They didn't bother with this for WoW, why do it now?

    Just so we're clear, it's also classified as software, so it's unlikely to just be a comic.

    It's to cover things like the packaged material for the physical copy of the game.. manuals.. posters and assorted text items for blizzcon, stuff from the the store, etc.

    On the other hand, World of Warcraft and Mists of Pandaria aren't.

    Seems kinda random.

    It's probably done on the basis of things that might be troublesome later.

    Warcraft is a trademarked word already under Nice 16 protection, so it's unnecessary to also protect "World of Warcraft" since the "warcraft" is the important part there, not the "world of" (e.g. World of tanks, World of Goo, etc). Pandaria is an established location in the IP, so it's possible they just figured it was unnecessary to put additional protection on it.

    Or something.
    I don't know, I'm not a lawyer.

    Maybe it has already been brought up. Couldn't be arsed reading 30 pages. But could the heroes reference to Alleria and Turalyon? Both heroes of the 2nd war. And the storm would be the storm to come, return of the legion.
