After seeing the post with the Viking Compass, it is clearly just that, but I find the similarity between the two striking.
Regardless, all we can really deduce from this image is that there are eyes behind the ice, no point in getting worked up, it'll be revealed tomorrow, we don't really have anything more than what we had yesterday, except for the LOST numbers, that is interesting. Along with the Harbinger, well, it appears the end of the world is coming!
Makes me think Diablo, but lets also take into consideration the Xel'Naga for Starcraft? PERHAPS it is a teaser portraying their awakening and how they will be invovled in the Starcraft game... and the game announcement has nothing to do with the teaser. On second thought... that's not possible, but it was a different take on the clues.
Just so we aren't so set on only seeing DIABLO hints and such all over the place. The Harbinger, the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42 and their relative calculation to the end of all existence could easily pertain to Starcraft - remember what Zeratul said not long ago in a cinematic released for Starcraft 2? hehehe seem's kinda relevant, no?
Just my two cents. Not to give the wrong idea, I desperately want it to be Diablo 3 and will be pissed otherwise... VERY PISSED INDEED!
Here is what I feel:
Firstwe got ice, everyone goes Oh it must be WOTLK!
Then when it cracked we see space, everyone is oh it must be SC2!
Then we see eyes appear. Trust me that face looks nothing like Death knight!
Look at the piece between the eyes! It looks more like a Diablo to me.
Cant you see Blizz is trying to confuse everyone!
The only thing that I dont understand is the penguin!
Maybe the penguin is just a joke and is not related to anything?
Anyways with all the hype, I am 100% sure we are getting D3! Mark my words!
And stop wasting time disecting the pics... there is nothing hidden there! haha
It's clearly not a helmet in my opinion...it looks to me like you can see the lower parts of the eye socket. I'm probably just seeing things but it also looks like there are horns on the sides of the head; guess it could be just smoke or light or whatever. I also noticed the spacing between the eyes doesn't show lich king to me; seem way to far apart for that. Just my view of it...:offtopic: LOST is such a great show interesting that they chose those numbers...countdown to armageddon anyone??
And welcome back Umaro
I got it, it's a new Blackthorne game. Each symbol is for one of their old franchises right?
1. symbol from frostmourne (warcraft)
2. rune from diablo 2 (diablo)
3. protoss symbol
4. represents planets, each racer in rock and roll racing was from a different planet (rock and roll racing)
5. viking compass (lost vikings)
My immediate thought was Arthas when I saw the new splash page. I cant be bothered going too far into it anymore and will just wait for the announcement tomorrow/the day after that.
I think it's getting further and further away from Diablo 3. So to lessen my dissappointment if the inevitable happens (again) i'll stop trying to decipher all this crap.
My thoughts exactly. Latest splash looks much more like Wrath of the Lich King face than Diablo's face. If you go to the WotLK page on Blizzard's site, the eyes are streaming blue smoke off to the sides just like this new splash screen.
Two observations: 1. The smokey substance present in the last two pictures has almost completely disappeared. 2. The "stars" have moved a significant amount southwest from their positions in yesterday's picture.
