    Exclamation New Expansion Names were Trademarked over a Year ago.

    All Blizzard expansion names were NEVER trademarked within 8 months of their announcement at Blizzcon. Every single expansion name was trademarked approximately a year or more before it was announced. WotLK was TMed immedietly after WC:3 FT, Cata was TMed half way through WotLK, and MoP was TMed right before Dragon Soul. Stop believing that every time Blizzard TMs a new name now is going to be the next expansion, because it was probably TMed months ago, during MoP and before 5.4.

    Blizzard isn't stupid enough to TM the next expansion's name right before Blizzcon. If they did, I'd guarentee you that at least 40% of everyone who's going to Blizzcon now wouldn't, because everyone would pretty much know what to expac from Blizzard's flagship enterprise.

    Wrath was trademarked a week before blizzcon.

    I wasn't aware 40% of the people who go to blizzcon do it just for the new expansion announcement. Also, must be nice knowing 40% of the people who go to blizzcon well enough to know their reasons for going.

    You're saying simply knowing the title of the next expansion informs us of every detail of it? I'm not sure that would be an accurate assumption, and I don't think thousands of people would cancel their flights and rip up their Blizzcon tickets simply because they think they know the title of the next expansion.

    Didn't you hear? Dragon Soul came out a year before Blizzcon '11, before Firelands.

    What's the point of this what op is false and has been proven false

    Wrath of the Lich King was trademarked on July 28th, 2007. It was announced at Blizzcon on August 3rd, 2007.

    So...guess the OP will apologize for spreading misinformation?

    I'd love to see some proof to your statements. The only one I know is that MoP was TMed a couple months ahead, but don't know about the others. From what I heard, Wotlk was TMed only a couple days before Blizzcon and as far as I'm aware, that Blizzcon was still succesful.

    Um.... that's total bullshit.

    Wrath was trademarked a week before it was revealed IIRC, so WoD was trademarked at the right time assuming Blizz is printing all the posters and stage props for it.

    Although I disapprove of the language, I do agree the OP is an idiot.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.
