News Filter: Blizzard Trolls The Fan Base, This Time With Pandas

  • MMO-Champion is reporting that Blizzard, overlords of World of Warcraft juggernaut, have copyrighted the name Mists of Pandaria.

  • Epic troll, Blizzard.

  • Folks, I highly doubt that Blizzard is launching an entire expanion about the Pandarians. If anything, this will be a mini-expansion available in the Battle.net shop to add a new starting zone.

  • In the fullness of time, if there were more leaks, I will admit that I was wrong. But I just, I can't see it.

    ...you know, this might actually be an awesome idea for Blizzard. Make all new races cash-shop purchases with their designated starting zone, and then continue to work on end-game. Wouldn't be a bad strategy. Races are only fluff after all, given that racial abilities aren't that big of a game changer.

  2. @ Straw Fellow - I'm really like the idea, though it implies that Blizzard would be nimble enough and not risk-averse to try something new with their game. It will say a lot about the company if they shake up the status quo that way.
