"MoP: The calm before the storm". It all makes sense now..
Once again I'll state that I read something about Blizzard having already worked out the next xpac, untill they changed it to MoP the last minute. Well, the calm before the storm begins to make more sense now.
It is really the only reason this could be legit. But would Blizz really be that cliche?

More importantly why are people still even talking about "the Dark Below" anymore at all when it was nothing but a 4chan source, and a fake trademark that was removed right away... where as "heroes of the storm" has been filed in multiple countries and even approved in some =3

Okay since I missed the "dark below" stuff until it was already down, what countries was it filed in? I see HotS filed and/or finalized in a few countries now.
Also, Blizz didn't switch to MoP at the last minute. They had pitched a number of options, and decided on MoP long before any significant work was done.
That other expansion wasn't any more than a few concepts when it was dropped.
As for Heroes of the Storm being officially trademarked, I am still hoping that it's not the name of the next expansion. Even though the expansion itself might be great, the name itself sounds horrible. Its looking more and more likely now that it is.
We do know the origin of the ogres, you're right. They are descended from the Gronn, which are feral versions of the draenor earth giants. Earth giants we never see and know nothing about. Only that their bodies were incorporated into the edifices used to put the souls of orc warlocks into dead alliance knights.
We know that Mogu are involved very strongly in the binding of souls, so it would be reasonable to believe that incorporating them into a temple for the purpose of binding souls would be a step in the right direction.
The only hickup is of course that there would be no interaction between draenor and Azeroth early enough for ogres to originate from there. This problem disappears if one of two things happen. The first option is that Gul'dan wasn't the first person to open a portal to Azeroth. Another is that the idea was scrapped at a mid point in the development process leaving some artifacts that connect the two but leaving out the pertinent facts.
Like I said, close enough to be a scrapped concept.
Well, let's wrap this up. HotS is Blizzard All-Stars, explicitly says so in the BlizzCon schedule. (Main Stage, 5pm on opening day)
Now where is that thread about the guy who was 100% sure it is the next x-pac?
Oh yeah..Mojo Risin telling us we are all in denial....
