Default Blizzard Press Event on 6/28 -- what could it mean?

My hunch is this a WoW-related press event where all the parties are under NDA. But what are they revealing to the press?

I wonder if this has anything to do with Arenas being disabled...

All I know is that they reveal a new book. I hope it's Blood of the Highborne.

They probably realized they can't keep the next expansion a secret until Blizzcon, what with all the ways it can leak out, so they will just go ahead and make a press event to reveal it now.

That is my expectation anyway.

God I wish it was this. The title would be enough though.

But the leaks serve a purpose... They're deliberate. They build excitement for the coming reveal and fuel speculation. Heading them off at the pass would be counter-productive...

It's possible, but...

Dammit, this has completely unbalanced me. Here I thought today was going to be boring.

It's probably going to be something lame that can only be ameliorated via Genya's art.

Hmm. This does seem like the most likely answer.

Doubt it that is something i would expect them to reveal at Comic Con. Along with hopefully more info on Blizzards future with comics.

OT: It's probably about those questions they wanted blizzard to answer (Non class ones).

That seems like the most realistic purpose for Blizzard being there. They haven't had an event in the past that was completely dedicated to a new patch (unless I've forgotten about it).

Also, why the hell do I have to keep logging in even though 1) I don't navigate away from SoL on this tab and 2) I checked the "remember me" checkbox?

Fansite event / ask questions about 5.4/D3/HS, nothing very interesting.

Expected it to be this, considering your newspost on the 25th.

Actually I think it's the opposite regarding it being Hearthstone, Blizz pro mentioned they were there for Hearthstone while all the other sites are there for WoW. Also Convert To Raid, if I'm not mistaken, doesn't cover Hearthstone.

mmo-champion was also asking for questions a few days ago. Here's some questions they wanted submitted. So by the looks of it if this is indeed the press event, just a lot of 5.4 stuff.
Quote:
- These should be questions about MoP and Patch 5.4, not future expansions or far off changes.
- General Tank/DPS/Healing Role questions are fine, but no class specific questions please. This includes things like balance between the different healing/tank/DPS classes.

Anybody else having this problem with having to constantly log into the site? I refreshed the page and BOOM I was logged off.
