Quote from PreachWell this is only my take on it, but I'm taking from the news post here on Diablofans (I don't know how to read chinese) that the site has claimed that it is a teaser. So that then begs the question, if they are indeed the biggest D3 site in China, why would they risk their credibility for something that isn't real. Or simply, why would they lie?Quote from GekkelokoI may be sitting with a tin foil hat on here , but why would anyone imply that something that is not directly from Blizzard?? is a "Expansion Teaser"
Why would it show on a fansite and not the official Blizz site?
Source that actually shows it's from Blizzard itself , and not just user made? .... I mean after all ... it's "Just" a fansite , even though it might be the biggest fan site they have.
With how Blizz treats the Asian WoW crowd, it's not far fetched that they would give the teaser to a news site over there.
Moreover, doing so starts this big ol' internet-wide hunt for answers, which is ultimately damn good PR. We already got a teaser on the EU/US sites ("Reaper of Souls"). Viral campaigns like these create hype and debates, which again, is good PR.
But that's just my take on it.
Yeah agree on that one , why would they lie about it, it could indeed be for PR , maybe asia is getting some love this time....
Then again i'd rather see something official about it like the page on reaper ( that is more confirmation for me than anything ).
I mean mmo-champ pulled off a hoax with the wow xpac name reservation ( apparantly anyone could do that on any name without any consequences ).
So yeah , guess we'll just have to wait and see what gamescom brings this week =)
PS: I should really do something about my signature =/
