    They do it so as to be unencumbered by real decisions: how to truly advance the game and provide new story lines etc. Instead, they turn to this cheap model that provides qualified excuses to reuse content.
    How would going to a planet we've never been to before be reusing content?

    Nowhere did the first post say anything about going to Draenor. It did mention time travel however.

    If it's just in the submission stage, it can easily still just be another TDB.

    I don't know why people would be so worried about this when we don't even know the details about this potential expansion theme. A lot of it is the same "omg an entire underwater expansion" lol-fest we had with TDB. That was funny.

    So if it was filed today, it won't be on there yet.



    So there you go.

    Anything filed after breakfast on November 1st won't show up on US, Canada, or EU searches.
    Fair! We'll see soon, then, I guess..

    As for people complaining about rehashes - like every expansion, I just gotta say to wait til they show us what they have planned before whining about it. For all we know, this could be all fake, just like the Dark Below, Rise of the Legion, Infinite, Corgis Unleashed, or whatever else crappy leaks have been posted here in the last little while.

    No where did it say we were going to be time traveling.

    You can fixate on whatever you want to, the point is we don't know enough to (accurately) judge this concept. I don't get why everyone is freaking out and threatening to quit (we know they wont of course), it's madness.

    a pretty large chunk of the playerbase was unhappy with the totally all new lore they made up for mop, makes sense they are going to go back to familiar storylines this expac.

    If this is real, I'm not sure I really dig the theme. Oh well, Pandaria ended up being amazing, so I hope Blizz can do it great.

    This is how blizzard ups their Blizzcon stream purchases.

    Send in a random poster to get everyone all riled up on possible leaked information regarding the expansion ----> More people buy the stream. Yay!

    But the opening ceremony, which is when the announcement happens, is streamed free?

    Sounds more and more real to me by the minute...

    How did Blizzard get around this supposed legal problem with the name "Grom" before then? Or when did this become a problem? Because he's referred to as Grom almost always in lore as well as in-game.

    No, it certainly didn't. It said it would involve time travel and have Grom as the antagonist. That means something from the past. Whether it's coming to us or us going, it would be reusing ideas. It's cheap no matter how you look at it. I personally put no value on this as real, but if it did prove to be real I don't need to know the details. All I have to see are the words 'time travel' and I'm mentally checked out. I'll take all my time travel in Doctor Who and leave it there.

    It's also on every website, but thats not the point. Most people would want to know more than just the name, lol.

    It's called hype.

    I don't understand the uproar about time travel. If they can tell more stories and produce more content because they don't have to design so much visual content, then go for it. The idea that reused assets make a bad game makes no sense to me. I don't build a new house every time i have a party but they are all fun just the same.

    exactly what I was thinking

    while not doubting you, this is the first I've ever heard of this. I always find out about the expansion by the gigantic wall of text on MMO-C news page after it starts.

    I'll just assume that if they're going to turn the spolight on him now they want to avoid any problems. Before this, Grom was a minor character in WoW, not worthy of legal note, and during Warcraft RTS era the things that could go against Blizzard, like Honda Grom, didn't exist.

    I think you overestimate the impatience of people. The transcript is literally 15 minutes later available.

    Please stop making excuses for lazy development. Also, that analogy is horrible.
