World of Warcraft 5.0 - Panda Mania!
In the latest Patch 4.1 PTR Build, two new halloween masks textures have been added to the game files:

  • Helm_MaskHalloween_PaF.blp
  • Helm_MaskHalloween_PaM.blp

They seem to be early-alpha texture but according to what happened with the datamining/leak of the Cataclysm races 2 years ago, it looks like Pandarens will be the race of the next expansion! The name of texture for any piece of headset always ends with the first 2 character of the name of the race (Pa) and the gender (M/F), according to how the textures look it's really easy to conclude what the new race is.

More datamining reveals that the expansion is apparently named Panda Mania! and also uncovered a possible trailer ....

    I thought the objective of April Fools was to trick people, not show them something so obviously fake that everyone just groans and moves on.

    Maybe it's supposed to be obvious? Maybe, just maybe, it's an obvious poke at all the morons who post (almost daily) about what the new Heroic Class/Race should be with the next expansion. You know, when we aren't even half way done with this expansion.

    Shoulda just posted a hot fix for the PTR of incorrect slated changes. Believeable yet minute ones like "Cool down on Deep Freeze reduced to 12 seconds" or something like that. Rages would have flown. Would have been lulzy watching people go to the official forms to whine and have blizz go looool you got april'd.

    Have you honestly read the content of a vast majority of posts, not only here, but on other fansites and the official WoW forums? Those blessedly vocal folks think that, because they pay their monthly subscription fee to play, that they are then entitled to dictate/demand anything and everything they want...It's ridiculous.

    And, if you can read, my post started with gratitude, backed with evidence on what parts of the post I liked the most....So, Narshe, I respectfully agree to disagree....The VAST majority of my posts on this forum can be found in the Earthquake in Japan thread, where I didn't complain, but offered sympathy and well wishes. Read some before you start trolling.

    Fail troll is still fail, even if you do it for free.

    Edit to add : Advertising your services in your sig shows some real class pal...good on ya.
    1st, I have more posts than you. 2nd, thank for commenting on my sig, BUY SOMETHING DAMNIT! (ps, why do I give a shit that you posted in the Japan thread? Did you donate? Whats your point?
