Blizzard Trademarks "Corgis Unleashed" (Okay, not really)
It's time to end the fun party we've been having for the past 24H. As it turns out, it's pretty easy to add whatever the hell you want on a .gov website. According to this new page, Blizzard just trademarked Corgis Unleashed, a game that according to our sources would kind of look like this.

Edit: Apparently the original news was too subtle, the "Corgis Unleashed" trademark was registered this morning for fun, as it turns out, there is absolutely no check and anyone can register something under Blizzard's name. This is an application, not a confirmation, you don't even need to pay the $275 application fee.


We probably jumped on the bandwagon a little early and I spent the past 24H double checking stuff since it was basically everywhere, I guess today is just not the day. Sorry guys, going to call the whole The Dark Below thing a hoax.

    What i dont understand is, are those real trademarks blizz did order or are those just nicely done fake urls and jpgs from some troll on the web?

    Pretty sure its impossible to have access to preliminary filings and you only have the ones that get publisched in TESS. So hoax seems to originate from MMOC.
    Actually the trademark for the dark below has been linked back to the government website and it is real.

    So this must be the Unannounced Starcraft 2 expansion then, if The Dark Below is WoW and Reaper of Souls is Diablo 3?

    I think those Corgis are far more scary than a Zergling Rush.

    I still don't know if I'd call 'The Dark Below' a hoax. Considering the timing between the other trademarks and BlizzCons in the past, this one does seem to link up pretty well.

    If anything, this makes Dark Below seem a lot more likely to me. Remember the masks before Cataclysm was announced? We got a real leak of Worgen/Goblins, then Blizzard quickly released a bunch of silly fake masks to make the real ones seem fake. Seems like the same thing here.

    Read the article. Anyone can file under Blizzard's name, and is only an application.

    So yes, the application is real, but is completely meaningless since anyone could have done it.

    So Dark Below really was a hoax. It's not even something that Blizzard did as a red herring. Just a full blown hoax from some internet troll.

    This is where every race in the game is replaced with Corgis, right?

    As the prophecy foretold?

    Well thats comforting, "World of Warcraft: The Dark Below" didnt have a good ring to it at all.

    Starcraft 2 is Legacy of the Void.

    For me, as long as those applications lack serial numbers (they have been taken in) I would say they are fake. One would think it won't take many days for them to register them in.

    But how do you know that it wasn't made by some random dude?

    What I don't understand is. We haven't got anything like this in the past. So how will we actually know if a trademark is actually legit or not?
