    I have an hour drive home after the ceremony is complete, and I'm hoping I don't miss more WoW stuff. Can't remember if the Deep Dive is this evening or tomorrow, since I don't think the Blizzcon Schedule had it last time I looked.
    Only announced WoW panel today is audio panel.

    I don't think last years BlizzCon is much indicative of anything. Way more big announcements expected this year.

    Well the buy hasn't been officially done if the trademark rights haven't been transfered yet. And I think that TM expired already

    Yes, this would be more easy for them to buy it and ask (don't know if there is this possibility) to make it private before today.
    This way for all the intents and purposes the TM is expired would show up when searching for it.
    Only if someone tried to trademark it again it would show up.

    Im fairly certain they could renew a trademark indefinitely, even unused, if they show they're using it for a future product.

    "Fairly certain" here means "probably at best" though.

    Imagine if they actually just show 8.4 and then are all "Okay, see ya at Gamescom!"

    I kinda want it to happen just to see the rage.

    Not possible I don't think. That is why the first trademark is usually placed in a country without an online database and then they just transfer it with priority to other countries they need it in

    Considering they're on the Mythic Stage, you'll probably need a ticket for it.

    Like Ion is gonna call the bureau of trademarks just before entering the stage ?
    We can assume they registered it in a country that doesn't have online registers or in a country no one searched yet. I think it was the legion trademark that showed up days after the announcement.
    They can register the name in any country that signed an intellectual property agreement (don't ask me which countries have) and then carry it over after the announcement, so it really could be anywhere.
    Finding the trademark in new zealands database was a lucky strike i guess.

    imagine the ERUPTION if the Bolvar cinematic is of 8.4 with him invading Kul'tiras and Zandalar

    Oh, it makes more sense than my idea.
    Trademarking it offline and today spreading it on online TM services

    Man that's lame

    It's a Blizzcon miracle everyone.

    I somehow got an extra daily for the Winterspring frostsaber mount. I will actually get the mount today instead of tomorrow.

    The Bolvar be blessed.

    Overwatch
    Hearthstone
    Diablo
    Warcraft 3
    WoW

    Wonder if us ticket owners get demos this year too. I wouldn't mind a Diablo 4 or Diablo 2 remaster demo.
