    Conquest Points Cap Bug

    We won't be granting full Grievous gear to all players, in fact those that acquired gear from the increased cap should not get too fond of holding onto it. We plan on dealing with this matter appropriately, however we cannot elaborate on our plans at this time.

    I'm starting to get very concerned about this, still nothing and it's been days now. Come on Blizzard, shape up.
    We'll be communicating on our plans as soon™ as possible. Taking gear away is a very delicate process and one which we definitely don't want to jump in to, too hastily, the same goes for any other actions we may take. We've recently changed the level requirement on the Grievous weapons to ensure that people cannot use them for the time being and we're looking into what else we can do to resolve this situation.

    We understand that this is a frustrating situation for everyone, but we ask for your patience while we deal with this matter further. I've also increased the posting limit for this thread, so please feel free to continue discussing this topic.

    Heroes of the Storm Trademark
    A "Heroes of the Storm" trademark appeared in the New Zealand database tonight, and you can find a fun speculation thread on the forum.

    Keep in mind that this trademark isn't confirmed just yet. It isn't likely to be used for a WoW expansion, as the trademark application mentions the software being used on "mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs".

    Blizzard Art Update
    Blizzard has added more pieces to the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Art gallery.

    Can't wait to see how the connected realms will turn out to be.

    Heroes of the Storm sounds like the Blizzard All-Stars game.

    The Art is really cool too.

    Trademark timing is perfect in NZ. Auckland and Wellington currently being hammered by a storm

    Is this why my WoW client won't update anymore? Really strange.. he's just 'updating' but it doesnt do anything. Also tried
    the client (same there).

    Nice: First time with Midwinter that an alliance-guild fight for the top-spot. Even as an european i really hope they win!

    I know it sounds so cheesy but I still like a title with "Heroes" in it. Sounds majestic!

    Isn't the trademark the image, the authenticator and mobile wow armoury use the wow logo so would have the "mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs". bases covered.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also wouldn't it be a stormrage centred xpac since no other 'storm' is prominent on the 'good' side, alliance cata 2.0 'Stormrage puts the slap down'

    I think it's something with Hearthstone

  16. #16
    There's that theory that cata was split into thrall and a stormrage arc, one ending in firelands the latter abyssal maw, but the stormrage part was ditched along the way and 'doubled up' in firelands

    I bet Heroes of the Storm will be the first Deck you can buy for Heartstone.

    Only me that noticed the "Mists of Pandaria" artwork was from Cataclysm instead?

    I think it is a Mortal Kombat/Tekken type game where you can play as Warcraft heroes.
