WWI Teaser - Day 2

  • #1
    The teaser splash page has been updated around 12:10am -- it is going the route I had said in one of the forum threads. Each day it seems the ice will crack further and further until the WWI announcement day where the ice will be broken to reveal the new game.




    A new symbol appeared on the upper-right side of the ice fissure. This ice image might not mean anything yet except being just a teaser: that a new game announcement will be made.

    At this point, it could be a Diablo game (most likely due to Diablo II Anniversary being the same date as WWI closure), Starcraft: Ghost or Warcraft IV. All these games have been hinted a lot by Rob Pardo, Paul Sams and Itzik Ben Bassat in the past year.



    xusnlivin reports one of the runes shown in today's image resembles the Hel Rune from Diablo II.





    forsinain points out a pattern on the master.CSS file for today. Yesterday the name was Tundra. Today the name is Cavern. His pattern points toward one of the Diablo Acts' locations:
    Glacial Trail -> Frozen Tundra (.tundra in CSS)
    Glacial Trail -> Drifter Cavern (.cavern in CSS)

    The speculation was true: D (04.jpg - fourth letter of the alphabet) and today's image O (15.jpg - 15th letter of the alphabet). At this rate the image numbers will reveal DIABLO. Tomorrow's image might be named as any of these file names ... 01.jpg (standing for the first letter of the alphabet: A), 02.jpg (standing for B), 12 (standing for the twelve letter of the alphabet: L) or 09.jpg (standing for the nineth letter of the alphabet: I).

    Today's Tundra image merged with yesterday's shows this, and it looks a lot like a evil-smiley penguin to me:



    Update: 12:55pm EST - The WWI Europe website revealed the WWI Shop showing the following image:

    The Day1 rune is a Shael.

    Awesome. :)

    Hmm, Hel Rune = Requirements -20%, Shael Rune = 20% increased attack speed.

    So, Diablo 3 releases in 2020?
    or maybe, they are 20% through development?
    or .. 20% left until completion?

    Hell, I don't know.

    Haha, hopefully not.
    Rumors and supposed confirmations have said that D3 has been in the works since '05.

    Never know, could be out by the end of the year?
    One hell of a secret they've kept if thats the case though.
  • #18
    well the worldstone in final cinematic in LOD was red :D:D so its a frozen worldstone :D
  • #19
    so where was everyone geting the secret images underneath with the nuber system and where were they finding the image source names like cavern and stuff??

    I've been a lurker on this forum for so so long. but now I post.

    I wonder what rune word their trying to go for?

    Edit: well for each day, from what we see so far, is a new rune. So the rune word starts off with Shael + Hel. We have 4 more days until the Invitational. What rune word can be spelled out if they release a new rune in each splash?
