    I like the Ankoan and I would prefer them to the Mechagnomes, even without or with only very slight dimorphism.

    I actually think my ideal solution would be the Mechagnome skins as a new customization for the gnomes and the Ankoan as an Allied race. ... If I can't have Sethrakk. I'd really like to have the Sethrakk above everything else ^^
    Mechagnomes are just gnomier gnomes. We already got that with Lightforged Draenei.

    I am glad we are not getting vulpera, mechagnomes or ankoan as allied races.

    Yea, which is why I wouldn't like them as an allied race. But some people do and I also think the gnomier gnomes would be cool as customization for the normal gnomy gnomes. Just.. not as an AR. I don't know if Blizzard would do this though, because the maximum customization we got so far is new eyecolours. Well, we'll see and we can dream and speculate until they announce something definitive ^^

    The maximum customization Alliance has got is eye colour, Horde also got straight backed orcs.

    - 2011 - MoP reveal
    - 2013 - WoD reveal
    - 2015 - Legion reveal
    - 2017 - BfA reveal.
    - 2019 - no reveal

    Now you can clearly see 9.0 reveal won't happen in 2019. It's pure logic.
    No, that clearly means the next expansion will be named N'zoth Overdrive.

    At least the Lightforged are more militaristic than the exiles. Mechagnomes are really just gnomes².

    Oh right, I forgot the straight backs! I mean, if maybe they give some more straight-ish backs to some other races too (Darkspear and Undead for example) then maybe gnomish mech-limbs aren't out of the question either. Aaaand Tatoos for everyone, things like that.

    *sigh* What I wouldn't give for more customization overall, like different body-types, changeable eye color without changing the whole face and those things. But I don't think this is something they are going to give in a patch, if at all, so this would be more for the next expansion speculation thread. ^^

    Of course. Gotta make as much cash as possible these days with minimal effort.

    And yeah gotta continue development on those mobile games nobody asked for I guess so you can show them at Blizzcon and then be surprised when nobody applauds it.

    Probably a good thing that's happening. It's really only recently they go to Gamescom.

    It would have been a good idea to shove all their mobile titles there though. Or really, at a convention that has mobile gamer fans. If people who mainly play on mobile are even gamers, fans or go to cons in the first place, I have no idea.

    He totally is over Blizzard and WoW, that's why he's got to tell everyone else about it.

    Note: Also they shinny, that's nice -If they ever become an Allied Race, they should create a new clan with the Jinyu so we get boths
    Well I was hoping the same with the Vulpera...

    The great thing about quitting WoW isn't making a stand, it's showing everyone online that I did.
    They always told me I would miss my family... but I never miss from close range.

    Shame, it would be good time to talk about 8.3. But they can just make 40 minutes separate stream like with 8.1 and 8.2 I guess.

    Outside that, last years Gamescom was pretty shit, I remember only some e-sports stuff and Azshara video. Most of it wasn't even streamed. So no big loss overall (maybe for Blizz fans close to Germany).

    Plus now I'm kinda afraid that Blizzcon will have more mobile shit. They should just make separate even in China for that shit, otherwise it may screw their PR even with new WoW expac reveal.

    EDIT: Lol, of course Jehovah's witness must post first. Yeah, yeah, we know that FFMCCXLV is best game in universe and Blizz don't care about you anymore.

    Yeah but Jinyu are Murlocs. And Ankoans are even more Murloc-like. PLAYABLE MURLOCS!!!

    Next expansion won't fix anything.

    Devs are intent on this current self destructive game design path for some reason so I say just let them be.

    Damn. No, really. "Looking forward to share details ... when the time is right", yeah, that invariably means super-very late.

    Looks like it's going to be the slow unrolling of 8.2 with really pretty much nothing that we don't already know until Blizzcon. OK then...

    Actually, the Jinyu are evolved from the Murloc race thanks to the sacred waters from the Jade Forest, as well as other things.

    So no, they're not just playable Murlocs. Kind of like how Night Elves aren't just playable Dark Trolls.

    It's actually accurate to compare the Ankoan with the Jinyu, considering they're basically the same thing.

    "Actually it's the haters that go "unsubbing until 8.2 8.3 9.0""

    Actually, it's both.

    Well, I don't know about "more", but they are bound to have at least one, possibly two new mobile titles this year (and more next year). Apart from Diablo Immortal - which isn't theirs. They don't have to announce them anywhere though. It's a different world. They'll still probably announce one at Blizzcon - because it's going to be a little empty, so a new title, even if it is mobile, is going to liven it up a bit.

    One last chance for them from me is making a sane attempt at specs in 9.0. By this I mean half-undoing the prune, providing an interesting core for each spec, and damn STOPPING to screw with it every expansion. The very lastest-est-est-est chance. (Don't know how likely that they will do anything sane here.)
