    Yes!! Reading all these posts the past few days about people wondering why they word it like this i just had to post.

    It is a trademark, it is meant to keep others from using your IP (this includes name, icons etc). If they do not mention portable devices someone else might make an iOS or Android app and call it Warlords of Dreanor or Warlords of Draenor manual, like we see with so many IP's.

    Now keep in mind that we will be seeing this happening more often in the future now that portable devices have become this popular.

    It seems as if people think that the trademark is something that Blizzard needs to file in order to release a product, this of course is not the case, they can release manuals without including it in the trademark.

    So why didn't they include portable devices for Diablo 3's expansion?

    Doesn't get clearer than that, but the fact that Boub refered to it as a WoW expansion still leaves enough room for doubt. We'll know this week!!!
    I've played WoW on a laptop... Also, maybe they've added this section due to the fact that 'tablet PCs" are more than capable of playing WoW as well.

    Amazed that adds on Blackfuse hp got lowered......I have only ran in once and was told 2 people needed t do it. Ofc the 2nd person didn't go up so I was there alone.....but then I found the adds had 1.1m hp....this is down from 3.3 on normal which I solo. Since you do not get the debuff (that I noticed)I just stood over at the belt and solo'd it for the full fight.

    LFR shouldn't have achievements attached to it if they are gonna nerf it to the poin that you can almost ignore machanics...even though they said only last week that nerfing fights so mechanics can be ignored is something they didn't want to do

    There is the same Trall image on the BlizzCon banners. I doubt they would use placeholder graphics for that event.

    it's so surprising how a lot of people keep saying it's a hearthstone expansion , the game is still in beta...and concerning the portable devices in the trademark registry, it could be pretty much anything ,it could just as well be a new mobile armory

    Yes, but my point is they always include specific things in the class 9 trademark depending on what the product is. Go to the US trademark site and look up Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void. They all make mention of game manuals and software being sold as a unit and anything else that's specific to the game such a mousepads.

    No achievements are linked to LFR except for killing bosses, so they can nerf it to the ground and it will have no effect to nerd points whatsoever.

    Doesn't the Battle.net Armory app for mobile devices have a separate trademark?

    I'm not sure, I think so. But after thinking about it I have come up with the idea blizzard plans to make "pet battles" for Tablets and some Mobile apps.

    Didn't Blizzard say they would like to make Battle.Net app for mobile devices, but had no plans for it then since Battle.Net desktop client wasn't even in open beta yet? Maybe they are preparing for it in advance, merge it with WoW armory, add remote instals ( like steam has ), and other stuff.

    There could be a number of reasons, remember these trademark requests are filed by different employees, each could have a different approach within the specified policy of the company. Also if a trademark is too broad you increase the risk of objections.

    And yet people are wiping, being stuck in >>ONE<< LFR for 4 hours is NOT intended, having all normal mechanics would make it to hard for an unorganized group to kill in most cases.

    Also that old image of Thrall being plastered outside the convention center is interesting. Leads me to believe they really want to keep the expansion a secret until the announcement.
    Isn´t there a mobile AH app?

    or it could just be them being thorough.

    or the more likely situation where it is just a defensive copyright to prevent someone else from throwing up some terrible app with the same name.

    The irony of someone saying something sounds like it is from a 5 year old.. and then using the word ´retarded´...

    pot, meet kettle.

    Its beyond obvious this is the next wow xpansion. So much denial everywhere lol.

    The title also meshes well with what should have been expected considering all the hints from blizzard regarding illidan's return/alleria/turalyon's return and all the "impending burning legion return" hints.
