    They are the same exact codes. It is possible that the USPTO simply updated their wording in the over 2 years that have lapsed.

    And I have no earthly idea why people are turning this into a fight on both sides of the argument. *shrug*

    I personally am good for either side. What I don't like is people being arrogant and rude about it. That and the gloating just shows how low we've become even if it's our passion for a great world that Blizzard has created for us.

    Someone was ahead of you on using T.

    Honestly I'm fine with whatever HS turns out to be. But what I"m not fine with is going straight to Argus next. IMO there's just too much Blizz can get wrong with a penultimate Legion expansion, and the game right now is in too fragile a state to get anything wrong.

    The Burning Crusade 2 = The Death of WoW

    Return of the Draenei = Not-Dead WoW

    I'm expecting 7.0 revealed at Blizzcon. They want yearly expansions after all. If they don't reveal it, I'll be happy as it means Quality is still before Quantity in Irving.

    Why would this be describing the sundering? He puts a mist around Pandaria so they don't have to deal with the Burning Legion or the sundering then. Instead they get to take centuries to prepare themselves for the next invasion (storm) when they will be needed, and when the Pandaren are ready to be of help.

    Not saying this is what Heroes of the Storm references, or that its any proof of it being the xpac, but its about as reasonable a guess as any.

    Well IMO BC2 is a different nightmare scenario. A lot of people complain "this feature you added ruined the game."

    The risk in BC2 is Blizz doesn't add anything. I call it BC2 for a reason. That Blizz is just "Legion = subs" and repackages all the sci-fi nonsense we had in BC and just places it on Argus. No new characters, no new plots, no new demons, no revolutionary features. Just a repackaging of BC in a blatant grab for nostalgic fans.

    If this expansion wants to do well it will have zero relevance to Mists of Pandaria, and will incorporate many new features, and scrap a lot of garbage already present in the game. Garbage like LFR and Scenarios. We don't need new BGs or Arenas. That's old and tired. Things MoP did well was Challenge Modes and Heroic raiding, that's undeniable.

    We'll see next month if the next expansion is worth anything to people who aren't diehard fanboys or if it will be mediocre like MoP was.

    My fear is Blizz will make a repackaging of BC to satisfy people like this guy. Who are likely driven more by nostalgia than by an actual desire for a good game.

    We had people thinking it'd be Pandaria, and others thinking it was the Kvaldir, and some saying Azshara and that MoP was a hoax.

    But this.... why is it the BC2 fanatics have latched so hard onto Heroes of the Storm as to be unable to see the probability that it has nothing to do with WoW?

    The thing is trademarked for mobile platforms!
    Honestly I'm fairly sure either this expansion or next will be legion based, but I am not even remotely convinced HotS is the expansion.

    Oh yeah, I'm driven by nostalgia. That's why I'm tired of features like BGs and Arenas and want completely new things. Because a desire to see new things is driven by a desire to repeat old things.

    Do you even logic?

    And anybody who has even a quantum of buisness sense will completely ignore what you just said. You might not like those features, but they're popular. Removing challenge modes and heroic raiding probably wouldn't hurt the game to badly, certainly not as much as removing LFR and scenarios would, or killing PvP entirely.

    Jesus what an incredibly stupid post. Just assumption after assumption with you. Adding NEW features in PvP would kill PvP now? Zero logic here. The level of posters on this site in quality posting is absolutely abysmal. Do you even take the time to think it through before hitting that post button? You think removing Heroic Modes wouldn't hurt the game badly but "scenarios and LFR" would? Rofl. What basis do you stand on? Flex has more or less replaced LFR as its being run way more and scenarios are trash that only happened because dungeons weren't up to snuff this expansion.

    Don't talk about business sense. You clearly have no business degree, you're just a keyboard warrior.

    Notice the update to the top of the OP. I find the evidence very convincing.
    "Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.

    Now tell me one thing.. when the Legion has such an impact on the wheather - And it arrives. And you would look up to the Sky just as it arrives. What do you see? A Storm or horrible Anime-Shit Characters? You don't get what I mean? Yeah of course it refers to the sundering. Since the sundering was a point where Legion Troops did arrive. That has nothing to do with the Maelstrom specifically back when it all happened. The Word Storm can indicate many things. But when it's tied to "Evil" in WoW - It's the Legion. Azshara is no Storm. She may have the power to call upon one - But that's because she casts or does something magically. The Legion seems to literally change the whole Wheather just by arriving. A horrible thundering Storm, probably much more dire than anything Lei Shen could have done. What I'm trying to squeeze into your head is: It does refer to the Sundering. But the Sundering isn't what's causing the Storm. Because the Storm was there before the Sundering had even happened. If the Storm was caused by the Sundering itself Shaohao wouldn't even have had the chance to hide Pandaria and protect it. Because if the Storm had come from the Sundering the Continent would already have been broken. But Shaohao could see this Storm while he was still on his journey. Which is just "blatantly obvious" the reason to why the Storm refers to the Legion. Not the Sundering. Also without the Legion the fucking Sundering wouldn't have happened and all we would have fought the years prior to MoP would have been Night elves. And don't even try to find other arguments as to why it would refer to the Sundering itself. Please. Just keep it to yourself.
