    Thus why I specifically mentioned the current accepted connotation, which is overwhelmingly negative. Fantasy work operates on pretty even keeled stereotypes. We will not be warmongers out with a militia to overthrow good people. It would be ridiculous to even think that is why they would name if 'Warlords'.

    What if we're overthrowing the current inhabitants of Argus - AKA, the Burning Legion? We're Warlords of (from) Draenor, coming back to retake a planet with a large military force.

    I know exactly what "warlord" means. The thing is, as I read that user's idea I found it plausible as well. In fact "anything" is plausible in the days up to blizzcon. Who's to say we aren't going back in time/through space to help someone do something, which leads us to wage war on the native races of that planet/time, only to find out at the end on a later patch the person we're helping has a darker agenda and we're helping our own demise all along? Either way, if we travelled using the Exodar under the Draenei flag, to the people we're killing we'd be the warlords of draenor.

    We just know the title of the expansion for a fact, not the actual content of it.

    You're incredibly witty, and your distaste for the game is very impressive. I bet you were just too good for WoW, right?

    At any rate, thank you for your contribution to these forums

    I still think that's a big stretch for Blizzard and would require some abstract thinking by the players (which, let's face it, is asking too much). You'll be less disappointed if you go into it with the common assumption that the Warlords are indeed the orc tribal warlords from Draenor's past.

    I think it is interesting to note that, while this thread is still staggering along at 90 pages as of this post, the OP still has posted a grand total of 1 time.

    I think the people he outed (Whose names Boub has since removed) took the dude out before he could reveal any more!

    If they made Pandaria work with all its wonders, I have huge faith in Blizzard for pulling off a time-travel Orc focused space travel expansion. Not what I was hoping for given how great the story has been, but luckily if it does suck, heres to hoping Blizzard keeps their word on annual expansion packs.

    But Turalyon and Alleria has been gone since WC2. And if we started following them after WC3 up until WoW we'd still have a gap in the timeline of a few years between WC2 and WC3 wouldn't we?

    That's what I've been saying, but people would rather entrench themselves in abstract thought of their own as if they've figured out some secret puzzle set forth by blizzard cryptographers. I'm honestly not trying to be insulting, but intentionally using a word against it's connotation would be a horrible naming convention.

    It would be like calling this expansion Dictators of Pandaria and then we're the dictators. Not only would it be a tacky name, but it would be a misleading title. No, we're not going to be Warlords of Draenor. This is not even getting into the fact that 'of draenor' as a grammatical clause would be used ambiguously in that scenario which is another no-no for a naming convention. Anyways, I digress. The guy I quoted has the right of it.

    You guys... anyone notice something weird about the OP? We can't private message him or add as friend and also all he has is 1 post which is this one. Might he as well be busted for what he has done? :P

    Just like Mists of Pandaria lets you know that it's going to culminate with the Siege of Orgrimmar?

    My next biggest question is, if we're going back in time such as we did in Culling of Stratholme and Opening of the Dark Portal, will we all be transformed into races present in that timeframe? We got turned into Night Elves for Well of Eternity, Humans for Culling, surely they can't expect us to be Orcs the entire expansion.
