    That sounds like a description of the community site...maybe expansion-related events on the community site are included in this trademark?

    Zero.

    They wouldn't call a deck of cards "Mists of Pandaria", the title just scream expansion, like Cataclysm or Wrath of the Lich King.

    We already have same faction matches in BGs and arena so I don't see the problem with silhouettes.

    That's exactly what I'm thinking, a site hosting the expansion teasers, information etc, within the Trademark.

    Without reneging on silhouette recognition, best I can come up with for playable Pandaren is the two dominant casts (I'm using definites only within the boundaries of this wild guess), the warrior and priest casts, enter a succession war after the Cataclysm causes the death of the emperor/other ruling body. One side will send an emissary to Darnassus, since the pandaren once had friendly ties with the night elves before the War of the Ancients, and the other will send an emissary to Orgrimmar, having established friendly ties through Chen and Rexxar. From there, the Alliance and Horde realize Pandaria would be a powerful nation to have on their side, and send people over to aid their respective caste in the struggle for succession, and the entire Pandaria experience would be highly reminiscent of the Three Kingdoms era in China, with the Imperial forces that remain being quickly trounced by the warrior caste and the priest caste winning the support of many of the more moderate factions. It would eventually end with Pandaria jointly ruled by both, but with the two castes remaining with the Horde and Alliance out of a sense of duty and because they know they owe the respective faction for their aid. Boom, playable pandaren storyline set up.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.

    I told you all there will be a Pandaria xpac. And no, you will not be able to play a Pandaran. There will be a new hero class, either Brewmaster, Runemaster, Vagabond, or something like a monk (but not a monk).
    I'm sorry, but i just have to tell you that you are an ignorant, closed minded fool, and you need to chill out, think more, and quit being such a douche. Your responses are shrill, closed minded, and ignorant. You need to think outside the box sometimes, and realize its blizzards game and you are not ghostcrawler.

    I expect Pandas to be a "neutral" faction and you can be either horde or alliance.

    The expansion implies Pandaren won't be playable... unless BOTH factions get it, why would they name an expansion about one faction's race?
