    like thr guy who made the fake logo for dark below, people were still believing that when he revealed it.

    anyway, fairly sure dark below isn't real, but the real one is already trademarked, just in the same style of hearthstone, hearthstone was probably a test to see if they could hide it that way.

    The step between creating a fake image in photoshop and filing a fraudulent trademark is a pretty big one, in my opinion.

    Having said that, it's possible for the patent to show up at any moment I guess.

    most likely it will show up a day before blizzcon, thats what im hoping anyway, keep it quiet as long as possible.

    I can't find it because of the popularity of the 2011 leak, but it was a list of stuff like "Elemental Set" and "Great Sea Set" and it listed a bunch of zones and level ranges.

    Came out during Wrath beta, got everything after Wrath wrong.

    There's several threads on this topic, already.
    All classes to 100. Check. Currently playing Final Fantasy XIV and hoping it distances itself from WoW as I level.
    My opinions: 5.0 was the golden age of content, the pruning was far too light and HFC is the final raid of WoD.

    guess we find out in 20days!
    Even if it was posted in multiple countries, it could have been different guys, following a copycat effect.
    Anyway, I don't think, if it's an hoax, that the guy(s) that did it would reveal themselves so soon, and that they are probably behind some of the "The Dark Below is the next expansion" threads, fuelling their troll...

    Let's wait the Blizzcon, people, 20 days are not.... so.... hard.... to.... wait.... T_T

    Nice thing about a Hoax... it creates hype for whatever is about to be announced.

    For all we know, it is registered somewhere. They were pretty crafty with Hearthstone.

    They could file it in the US the morning of Blizzcon if they wanted. I think in Wrath it was only a few days in advance.

    In this case, which is an example, they don't need to trademark.

    I like sloths.

    On topic. MoP was trademarked months behind. But I think Blizz has learned their lesson and is tired of us finding shit out ahead of time, kind of spoils the fun. So they are probably pulling that hearthstone shit on us again. Or they are going to do it at the last minute. Either way we will find out about it in a couple weeks.

    Thank you ElyPop for the sig!

    Reaper of Souls and Hearthstone were hidden until they wanted to announce, I think WoW will be the same.

    I'm not sure it's "fake". When it was leaked, WoW was young. Their plans could've easily just evolved over time. If anything, I think it's pretty accurate for something THAT old and I have no hard time imagining it being a rough outline of where they wanted to go with the game back then.

    So...How many days was it between the reaper of souls trademark and blizzard announcing it on their website? It was like 2 or so as far as I remember. I see no reason why they wont do the same with WoW.

    It was actually just an outline of locations from the rpg book.

    WotLK and before are accurate because they were already known at the time(it only appeared after the WotLK announcement). The rest were just educated guesses. It's not real, and never has been.
