    The risks of making an exp about the Burning Legion

    Since there is a lot of people asking for a Burning Legion expansion again (and seems that it is almos offciial that we are going to get one at last) Blizzard is taking a lot of risks, even more than doing something totally new

    For example, when Blizzard announced MOP , something totally new, there was a nerdrage but at the end ,since nobody exactly knows what to expected, it ended to be a very enjoyable expansion

    Now that Burning Legion is returning, what would happen if Blizzard deliver it and it has nothing to do with most fans expected or decired, or if is not what they envicioned during all those years waiting for the return of the Legion? The rageee is going to be WORSE than with MOP

    I still would have rathered we had Azshara. But in a battle between Time Travel and Fel Orcs, I gotta go with Fel Orcs.

    I hate Time Travel as anything more than a plot device. That Time Travel leak has it being the key piece of the plot.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    Pretty sure MoP turned out to be better than expected because the content was actually good compared to Cataclysm.

    You realize the largest migration away from WOW happened because of MOP? it was a failure of an Expansion.

    Where is this "time travel leak"? I ask because the person I see mainly talking about time travel in all of these new threads is you. Can you link? Why would it need to be a time travel situation to begin with?

    No, that is because the games has more than 6 years old?

    So lets says this, since it is "almost" confirmed that the BL is returning this exp, that means that we are going to see a increase of subs and resubs next year when the exp is going to be released?

    Sure thing, here's the full quote of his post.

    • Reforging is changing, soon you will no longer need to keep hold of an item to "own" the transmogrification appearance.
    • The upcoming Blizzcon secret gift is an Elite Tauren Chieftan Hearthstone gift card.
    • The Dark Below has been registered for 'Titan', not World of Warcraft as is the rumor.


    A big thank you for this information goes out to: <The names here were removed by Boub while he was at an airport>
    It can be hard to find as the guy didn't call it a leak, or state the name of the expansion. The thread was just "Wow-want to know what happens next"

    So a guy with 1 post is a leak? I'd call that speculation, rumor, but leak?

    Fixed that for you. Especially T11 failed on such a grand scale.

    Actually it was a lot of things but two of the major factors were in fact the age on WoW AND the MoP expansion. Not everyone liked/likes Pandarens you know..

    He was considered a rumor/troll until this trademark came out.

    He nailed the name, so he's now got a following of people that think "he got the name, the rest must be true" and people that just want Time Travel.

    Pandaren aren't even that present in MoP, it's mostly Mogu all over the place, even their statues are everywhere. I'm wondering why the continent isn't named Moguiya instead.

    I honestly think he just mixed up Grom and Garrosh.

    I know that not everybody liked it, but even with that, the MAJOR reason was the age of the game

    For example, personally I am going to stop playing wow after the upcomming expansion (whatever it is) not because I think that after that everything is going to suck, or because "I am so hardcore, casuals sucks" or because they dont deliver the theme I wanted. It is just because I am planning to do another activities with the time that I spend raiding, and I am pretty sure that it is the reason why the majority of people are leaving the game, not just a nerdrage.

    I actually missed it as well until I read closer. First bullet point, at the very end it says something along the lines of "the expansion will focus heavilly on time travel"

    Yeah I re-read it and removed it from my last post lol. But yeah, still thinking he just fucked up Grom and Garrosh. I don't see Blizzard doing a whole time travel expansion, though there is that GC interview....
