    [Mist of Pandaria is] "wildly overhyped." He added, "if you look at traditionally how we've handled that race it's been in those secondary products because we haven't realized it in the world. Most of the time when we do anything panda-related it's going to be a comic book or a figurine or something like that."
    Back then, a lot of people said he clearly debunked the rumor and those who still believed in MoP were just delusional people who were too dense to see that Blizzard already debunked it. In any case, it shows that Blizzard can have reasons why they would like to keep things secret.

    What do you guys think is this real or fake? On the one hand it is plausible because Blizzard does experiment wit hincreased amounts of Cash Shop content at maximum level (Such as the EXP Potion/Lesser Charms from Store on the Testrealm which have been cut and the lv90Boost was introduced instead) but on the other hand Blue posters are credible when it comes to denial, such as when Ghostcrawler posted that the "5.5 Rise of the Legion" picture was fake - turned out it actually was fake.

    So what do you MMO Champions think or even know?
    It's fake.

    But there are so many intellectual stumps out there, that it'll keep getting traction with that group and we'll be stuck listening to it for a while. I doubt Blizz would hide it if they were planning it. In fact, there are so many people complaining about a lack of garrison options that this would probably be considered a "good" thing if they added it. So the logic of denying it, while believing that it actually exists, doesn't even hold.

    but that seems just for the features of WoD
    Generally Global strings is used as a handy list for localisation. IE Translation into other languages and things. Look to me like UPGRADE_FEATURE_15 is just a handy variable name for where "Build and upgrade your garrison" appears in the UI.

    Absolutely nothing to worry about IMHO

    It currently (as in last time I checked last night) uses Garrison Resources.

    I've had these drop from rare monster spawns , random chests in the world and quests [I think]

    Sad to see that even Mods try to spread lies.

    If there truly was a base idea, try to link the source and if you cant, you are just trying to make up shit.

    Also some Mod should close this thread. This thread was created after it was confirmed by Lore that it is fake and you guys still let this thread open.

    Great job guys.

    Just question of when
    Remember when they said that they won't allow faction transfer ? Then when they allowed it, they said they will 'keep eye on it' ?
    What about most things said in blizzcon were just 'promises' that won't happen ?
    And people will still defend blizzard anyway

    You really think Blizzard would care if they were doing it? OFC they would let you know what would you do unsub.. like the care. :P If anything this "Fake" news will just give them the idea to do it if they have not ready got it on the table for later on.

    It is real. Blizz is all about lies nowadays, or bending the truth.

    Exactly. It will never happen if a Blizz dev denies simply because of the controversy it would cause as it would mean that he was lying. Also, rumours like these go around all the time. Its not exactly uncommon.

    I think this is blatant moderation abuse. This thread shouldn't have been going for this long and now that it has people are still thinking it's real.

    There is proof in this thread that blizzard have denied something then later revealed it was true, and there are dozens more throughout these forums. That makes the premise for the thread to be open completely legitimate - and anyone saying it couldn't possibly true under the basis of a blue saying it isn't as naive and nothing else.

    It's certainly debatable. I don't think garrisons will ever get real currency attached in any form, BUT the blue post does nothing to prove my opinion - and this is a discussion forum, not a "Yindoo's personal censored news bulletin".

    That would not be lying it would be letting players have a look at current development.

    It's more absurd to me that anyone would believe Blizzard never 'thought' about it. What kind of half-arsed company would they have to be to not even at least having thought about such features or messing with the idea and possibilities.

    Ofcourse they had an idea base for it at one point. They'd have to be incompetent not to have had.

    Read the goddamn thread itself and you'll find Lore stating that it is false. If you need more proof than that, you're beyond help.

    Guise it's not real because my mom said so. And Bill Clinton said he never had relations with that woman so he definitely didn't.

    Skins for buildings won't ever happen. Ever. Not with the giant outcry about race-related buildings. Then they're to supposedly use them in the cash shop? Would be too much. Won't matter what skins would be in there, if people knew that they spent time on that instead of actual free content that people desire, they will be mad.

    If people aren't willing to believe Blizzard, well, there is nothing we (as MMO-C posters) can do to change that.

    I am willing to believe Blizzard on this point as I can imagine false information hidden in the game files just to fuck with the Dataminers. Think back to the Kara stuffs during the WoD Alpha.

    Anything that needs to be said about this has been said. The rumor was a fake. End of story. If people wish to discuss Blizzard's honesty and ethics there are other places to do it. Or you can just write to Blizzard.

    So moving on to other things.
