    I do believe WoD is the actual title of the exp but the chinese leak sounds utter BS:
    - Time travel again?? really?
    - The holy legend that is Grom trashed in a moronic plot ??? Not even Metzen would dare defile that

    I am only using a broad stroke as a hypothetical answer to my initial question, which my post is inviting you to answer specifically.

    it's perfectely valid for me to offer a hypothesis as a proposed answer a question which i cannot answer for myself; but in fact you need to answer it because only you can.


    what do you actually mean by 'immersion'?

    If it's not based on current lore, and is some undiscovered new part of Draenor that's floated off into space with a bunch of orcs on it, that's equally as boring.

    most of the leaks for Warlords of Draenor sound like utter shit/fan fiction. So what happens if the person who leaked the first information on it, like a few hours before the trademark was found, was actually the first person to find it, and all the Chinese "leak" has been utter giberish until after the trademark was found, and then all of a sudden, the guy begins posting everything, and not just giberish. Smells like tuna to me.

    So at this point, with the utter crap story of the coming expansion, that apparently has been leaked all the way till 6.4 >.> is nothing but fanfiction, and noone knows anything of the expansion until it actually comes out at blizzcon? This would actually make me happy, not knowing anything... besides the name of the expansion.

    Oh likewise. They story sounds worse than most fanfiction I've read, and I read a 200-page fanfic about a mary sue who turned into a black dragon and saved the world from Deathwing.

    OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."

    And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"

    Actually I stated, based on current lore in the game universe what the context of the name could describe, this does not cover (which I said in my post) non-current lore which could be added, and covered the more common theories/speculations which are completely impersonal, I simply stated that those concepts would be nonsensical/not convincing in the current lore, making them boring.

    So in other words, the concerns in the post are legitimate, and a comment of that manner deserves a sarcastic response.

    I remembered why I hate MMO-champ forums, clowns everywhere that don't actually understand anything.

    Imagine if it was a pre-First War prequel WC4. That'd be neat.

    Off topic, but does anyone else think it's weird that we named our planet a word that is essentially synonymous with 'dirt, mud, or soil'

    I don't understand trademarks. Isn't it enough to trademark something in one country? For example only New Zealand.

    If not, why people don't trademark it right away in the US or EU every time Blizzard announces something first in New Zealand or other single country and try to get lots of money from theme?


    Also, if the expansion name is really WoD and involves time travel and more Hellscream, even if it has amazing features, i am not sure i want to play that. I still have hope it's something else. If not, just gonna go straight to Wildstar or TES:O when they release.

    your premise is creating an unfair basis for comparison

    Any element of lore that exists would be boring if it were made into an expansion into which no non-current lore were added, all expansions are predicated on including something new, and if you start with the premise: 'based on the assumption nothing new is added' well then the idea that the expansion will be boring is a foregone conclusion and you have added nothing to the discussion.

    Is our planets name synonymous with other words in other languages? It is an odd thing

    Fanboy (Fanboi):
    1. A term used towards someone when a person disagrees with the said someone on a subject, person, place, thing, company, or product line and they are not smart enough to debate their counterpoints or facts, so they resort to childish name calling in hopes of shaming others into silence and thus them winning through dominance.* 2. A term used as a taunt/peer pressure technique to shape popular opinion through shame and humiliation.

    I am 100% sure this is going to be something Warcraft-related. Not sure what yet.

    If they are going to update Outland though that would make sense. Then we can get a Northrend expansion afterwards haha.
