Default new trade marks?

I saw on the front page of mmo champion new trade marks apparently for something called overwatch and something called Eye of Azshara anyone think it may be something wow related? possibly announcing new WoW expac at blizzcon to prove commitment to 1 year expansions and every 2 year blizzcons (starting on an even year)

That'd be nice, but I'm not placing any bets yet. A company the size of Blizzard buys precautionary trademarks at the drop of a hat.

Overwatch isn't related to Warcraft, Starcraft or Diablo.

EoA, if not fake, could be the new WOW expansion, but like you've probably seen on MMO-C, it could also be a HS expansion. If it's the latter, Blizzard really ought to have chosen another name.

Anyways, we've been talking about this in the WoD thread.

Actually, Overwatch could be the HS expansion. It sounds kinda gobliny/gnomish and the alleged new cards are mostly tech/goblin/gnome related.

That was Metal Arms, wasn't it?

The name of which I'd say would fit the Hearthstone machine expansion idea more.

Overwatch was Project Titan's new name.

Eye of Azshara sounds pretty lame and predictable. Fake, or Blizzard has gotten dull at names.

Anyway, everything looks like a fake to me. One known name and one predictable lame name.

Classic.

"Wrath of the Lich King" wasn't exactly inspired either.

I hope it isn't Eye of Azshara because Azshara and Naga are fucking boring.

Not likely. Metal Arms is an existing property, originally made by Swingin' Ape Studios and published by Sierra. Swingin' Ape Studios was acquired by Blizzard, and Sierra is now under the Activision-Blizzard umbrella. That's why Blizzard gained the IP for Metal Arms. I wish Blizzard would make a new Metal Arms game. It's the kind of IP I think they would do well with.

We need an expansion entirely focused on blood elves.

And suddenly the wave of Mur'ghoul items at Blizzcon makes perfect sense. I had a strong suspicion that was not coincidence (seriously, why pick a Mur'ghoul of all things, and twice? - goodie bag + plushie)

I assume it's the next expansion. Surprised they are ready to announce so early though. Maybe they are finally making good on a shorter dev cycle.

Edit: For reference:

Have to compete against games that give better value than WoW somehow.

Nani?
Azshara?

*perks up*

It's 90% a fake anyway, but what the hell.

The development name for the expansion was WoW 2015. However, the release for this expansion will likely be Q1 2016. As you've probably read by now, the official title will be "World of Warcraft: Eye of Azshara"

Introduces two new playable races - Naga and Higborne. Naga for the Horde, Highborne for the Alliance (there's been so much speculation that Naga will be neutral, I think the community will rage on this one)

Demon Hunters are a new playable hero class. Illidan, or rather his alternate universe counterpart, is coming back at the end of Warlords of Draenor, to fight the legion. In Eye of Azshara, Illidan leads a group of new playable Demon Hunters - a class which both the new Naga and Higborne races can choose.

This expansion is a bit more varied that WotLK - it contains Troll zones and lore, Golbin zones and lore, the Human city of Kul Tiras, Naga, higborne, Satyrs, the Burning Legion, and even a small link to the Emerald Dream.

Here's the big one - the one people will rage and rage and rage about. This is a two tier expansion with a max level of 100. That's right - there is no new level cap in Eye of Azshara. There is enough question in the new zones to get an 85 to 90, for players who skipped WoD, and there is alternate advancement for existing players that rewards augments to your skills and higher item level gear, but there is no actual increase in the level cap. The two tiers in Eye of Azshara accompany the two tiers in WoD to make up 4 tiers of level 100 raiding.

I'd go a lot more into detail, but I'm sure people will call bullshit on all this and I won't name my source. This is going to be announced on Friday at Blizzcon, you'll see then.
