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 understand not doing something that looks believable to avoid a shitstorm on these forums and the official ones but I still think you could have at least done something that hasn't been done before pandaren are a dead horse that keeps getting beaten.

    Appreciate the effort, masks could have been better, but i suppose with 4.1 on PTR the april fool's joke gets lower priority

    Right...and a troll is a troll.

    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.

    Yes. I find this joke both shallow and pedantic..

    mmm.. yes. Shallow and pedantic indeed

    Seriously though, most of you are a bag of dicks. Lighten up. Not only do you cry when Blizzard doesn't buff your class, but you cry when an April Fools joke doesn't amuse you.

    After reading most of the comments to this I imagine everyone looking like this when they read MMO-Champion

    It's just so hard to pull the wool over peoples eyes on April 1st these days. Perhaps Blizz will just do nothing for it, why do something humorous when it tends to only attract negativity
