I'm still holding out hope for The Dark Below, because I like the Naga and Old Gods a lot and I want to see both Nazjatar and Ny'Alotha more than anything. But, I'm down for a return of the Legion. It'd be awesome adventures beyond our world again, and possibly playable Ogres or Arrakoa or even Ethereals.
What I don't wait is what the leaks and speculation hints Warlords of Draenor will be, which would involve a whole expansion of time-travel and a massive headache for anyone following the storyline.
Has it occured to anyone that the reference to the portable devices could be related to pet battles? It was suggested a long time ago that they could make those mobile. Perhaps they're actually doing that.
Very un-interesting name for an expansion IMO. I think thats probably the main reason why so many here are hoping this is not the WOW expansion.
More scenarios and more 5 mans.

I hate when people say you don't need alcohol to have fun. You don't need shoes to run but it f!@#$%^ helps.
People were rioting about the Dark Below being a bad idea. Now that the most recent rumors peg the new expansion as set in Draenor, we're getting the same nonsense all over again.
I fail to see how such an expansion name is bad. It speaks of battle. It speaks of clans, warlords, and heavily storied content. In the past, yes. We'll be reliving Warcraft History. My, that does sound terrible indeed.
And to the idiots that STILL believe this implies revamped content from TBC: TBC was present time. Outland is present time. Outland is NOT Draenor, it's all that is left of Draenor. Enough with the revamp speculation already, jesus christ. Stop pulling stuff out of your asses without even checking lore. Most of the whining doesn't make a thread of sense.
As for people still claiming this is a Hearthstone expansion, when the game isn't even out of beta, words fail me.

I for one cannot wait to play the next wow expansion on my cellular phone. Obviously gonna be the dark below lol.
-Wouldn't some people like Velen who lived through those events recognise us back in the present?
-How will the orcs forget about creatures such as the player Goblins, Pandaren, Worgen, Trolls, Gnomes, etc? Since they obviously aren't familiar with them when they first saw them in older games, what causes them all to forget us at the end of the xpac?
-Are we in disguise like in Caverns of Time? If so, I'm sure it'd annoy a lot of players to be stuck in say Orc or Draenei or some other form for the expansion.
-It feels a bit strange and somewhat underwhelming to be fighting Garrosh and Deathwing again, after they already had an expansion each building them up as the main villain for their story. To then go back and fight them again, as downgraded versions (by which I mean lesser story elements than 'final boss') feels a bit sucky.
-Ultimately, we already know what's going to happen. For our timeline to continue existing, we'd have to either engineer the events that caused the Orcs downfall into fel-corruption, or stop others from preventing it. In either case, we already know how it all works out.
Time-travel, at least in my opinion, works best in smaller doses. Such as the Caverns of Time instances. It's a lot easier to work our appearances (mostly disguised) into single events like ensuring Thrall escapes Durnholde Keep, or keeping Arthas on the path we already know he took in our timeline. A whole expansion based off that concept could cause massive plot holes, inconsistencies and overall be a massive headache to follow.
Regarding the BNet Profile pictures, right clicking on any picture and then selecting view background image leads to this link/picture:
Where there is a 5th image of Arthas and a Marine. What do you think? Heroes of the Storm future Beta Opt-In maybe?
I hope the expansion has:
Grand scale PvP
Just my hopes.
>cellular phone and tablet PC
NOT A WOW XPAC.
I think the unknown is scaring everyone a little and making them lash out all over these forums. The name means nothing until we see all the facts of what the expansion will bring.
Mists of Pandaria sounded very weird - it's arguably the best expansion to date (personal opinions ofc). If they take the positives from this expansion we have and implement it in this one Im really looking forward to it.
Yes time travel is tricky and can be a mind fcuk for people but hey they might pull it off better than you think, they may do things you never thought about and certainly the bad people may not be the people you were expecting.
Hell I am expecting a very Wrathion heavy story line, I personally love this character and looking forward to seeing where they take him. Everyone thinks deathwing and garrosh (based obviously in these 100% legit leaks lol).
I'm thinking... we have 3 days to go and we should all just wait and see.. and tbh all these kiddywinkles who are nerd raging over the name and oh Im gonna skip another expansion - CYA!
Bring on the announcements ! and let the fires buuuuurn
All of the people saying they hate the name are still going to buy it. Bunch of tools.
Sure maybe this means WoD is the next expansion or maybe Blizzard just duped the whole internet. The whole rumour mill and trademarking is and has been crazy this year. Personally I would love Blizzard to pull out a big surprise this friday because I'm still dubious about trademarks ahead of time. Can't Blizzard just register anything they want at no cost, just to throw us off the scent?
Hurray.. Yet another xpac with Thrall. Yet another xpac with angry orcs. I love wow, but god damn this is going to be hard for me to enjoy playing onwards.
I think the problem people are having with WoD, if it is the expansion, is that an expansion based around time travel is going to feel lackluster. Sure, it will be cool to see Grom and Gul'dan and Ner'zhul and all of those guys, but it's going to feel like Caverns of Time extended for an entire expansion. Personally I like time travel, but it's a dangerous line as it's very easy to just mess up everything you've built up, or go with the "Nothing you did mattered in the end" kind of scenario, which would piss people off.
