    Hearthstone trademark has no mention physical disc, where as WoD does have the mention.

    I'm thinking Warcraft IV but it will be events prior to Orcs and Humans. Actually I have no clue what it could be but that is just what I am hoping for :)

    I have, but the "Hearthstone" justification makes no sense. "Heroes of Warcraft" is the name because of people like Garrosh, Malfurion, Jaina etc.

    What role would the name "Warlords of Draenor" fulfill? Is it just a couple of cards in the booster pack that is Draenor related. Or do you think there will be new playable heroes?

    If Warlords of Draenor is for Hearthstone I would expect.


    Ner'Zhul,Grommash Hellscream, Durotan(Maybe?) Rend Blackhand? Gul'dan is already used so no Kil'Jaeden maybe? Mannoroth Velen might be in it if he isn't already. That second in command dude that is next to Kil'Jaeden. Don't know anybody else.

    Simple. You download the game for free then and when you want to upgrade you can either download it or buy a pack in the stores.

    Just like how Wal-Mart sells 60 day gamecards.

    Think of what a great marketing idea that would be to have Hearthstone upgrade packs sitting next to the Warcraft TCG, Magic the Gathering, and all the other knockoffs in the stores.

    Flavor, art, uniqueness. Ability to one-up your friends. Any number of reasons.

    The art is the best part of card games.

    But we have those arctypes already. None of those people are warlords either.

    So you are saying there will be two warrior archetypes that will be playable? I don't see that happening for a while, but who knows. I expect to see Monks and DKs before two warrior archetypes for example.

    I imagine they will save DKs for a Northrend/Lich King booster and Monks for a Pandaria booster.

    I did say if it's for Hearthstone. I merely gave ideas. I felt like my post was probably not realistic due to me not knowing how the Hearthstone works exactly :/

    A pack does not come in disc format... They won't do that either, there will just be a B.net balance card to buy.

    Yeah I know, we are all speculating. I do hope what you said does come true in the future regardless.

    I would take "Warlords of Draenor" more seriously as Hearthstone related if this current iteration of Hearthstone was called "Heroes of Azeroth".

    Except it is a digital card game?

    Why limit your market exposure to the internet?

    How many sales would they miss out on from moms that didn't see Hearthstone sitting on the shelves during the holiday season?

    You mean like how League of Legends and Dota has physical versions? Path of Exile?

    Those aren't card games.

    Anyways, I'm not going to argue this into the ground. I'll leave it at: "I think it is Hearthstone, I've put forth reasons, and you can all laugh at me if I am wrong in a few days."

    Aren't you comparing a US trademark to a New Zealand one or something? I'm surprised they're as alike as they are.

    Yea you are right, they are more popular than card games.

    Magic the Gathering, the Pokemon trading card game, Yu-gi-oh, etc; all remain extremely popular worldwide.

    It wouldn't shock me if card games like those remain more popular to this day than games, even those such as LoL and DotA. MtG has been around forever and is still extremely popular.

    Welp, there you go.

    That's pretty conclusive, IMO. Hearthstone is going to be a F2P digital download, it's quite likely Heroes of the Storm will be the same (following the LoL/DotA2 trend). There's only 3 games that would need a trademark for a disk right now. Legacy of the Void, Reaper of Souls, and Expansion V.
