There is something I found regarding the hidden picture,something I haven't heard discussed anywhere... Go to Blizzard (salavate on the teaser pic and when you get over it,continue) Then click on Lich King...Then go to artwork...What is it I see?
I can honestly say the only game I have ever care for is Diablo but there are mixed signals being sent,so hold-em' horses...
So flag this and tag this and send it all over the internet...Just say Rumbling Potatoes told you...
What? A fat Walrus? I haven't checked this thread in an hour or so, maybe I'm missing the latest. The only reason the teaser is additionally located at WoW.com is because of WoW's currently huge fan base, and the fact that it has it's own site apart from Blizzard.com or Battle.net. Sc2 and WotLK are under development sites, and are not checked nearly as often as something living, like WoW. Blizzard is just covering all of they're main sites with the message.
Also, notice if you go to blizzard.com and click the splash it takes you to normal blizzard web page.
Click starcraft 2 button -> Starcraft 2.com
Click WotLK button -> worldofwarcraft.com
Click world of warcraft button -> SPLASH SCREEN!
It was just wrath of the lich king after all.
The splash screen is for the world of warcraft website guys. No more.
Would a company like blizzard, who keeps fans interelated to each other in terms of games. WANT 1/3 OF THE FANS TO SEE THIS TEASER? Warcraft.com has over millions of people on everyday, and blizzard is stupid enough not to include in on warcraft website? Same goes for starcraft..........
Guys.... Come on use your head. Starcraft II and Warcraft IS BLIZZARD's. They are only expanded sections of Blizzard's website. They BELONG to blizzard.
I just don't know why people would use this as evidence as to why it wouldn't be Diablo III. IMO, its the stupidiest and least creative.
OMG, MICROSOFT WORD IS RELEASING A NEW PATCH, BUT THEY ADVERTISE IT ON MICROSOFT EXCEL ETC. AS WELL. THIS MEANS THE NEW PATCH IS NOT ONLY FOR MICROSOFT WORD..
Use some logic skeptics. If you were advertising 2 products. Would you want your customers to know both products or just one..........
I know the ignorant post was not directed to me, I had not posted before it. But you should not call people who are basing their thoughts on flimsy evidence ignorant when you are doing the same exact thing.
God What the Hell?
My "Points Tally" is VERY fair, I think. What's not fair about it?
Even if you give Warcraft Full 1 point instead of 0.5 points (For day 1 rune) that still have Diablo 3 in the lead than Warcraft!
Once again, I am NOT saying you are ignorant if you don't think Warcraft is Better Diablo 3, but coming here to say Warcraft more likely than Diablo is Totally ignorant, on Every level!!!
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
Blizzard, please put back the single player offline mode!
... Sigh they SAID NEW GAME.. not pre-existing.... Meaning NOT DIABLO2 EXPANSION EXPANSIOn
Not WoW expansion expansion...
Not SC2 expansion...
ONLY TWO OPTIONS...
DAIBLO3 (which D2 turned out to be the fastest selling PC game of all time)
New Game (untested... Not sure will rake in money unlike D3 makes more sense to release after D3)
Look people BLIZZARD is smart.. You release three games in different UNIVERSE within 3 years.. And youll controll the market.
D3 - For adults (in case of MMO/RPG)
WoW - More kid tunned.. and great for casuals
SC2 - RTS great idea
After all 3 are out START on new FRANCHISE!
Its all about marketing and where the money is at. DIABLO fan base is arguable the largest of all 3 franchises.. And due to the lack of development of the series it a rabid fan base. I would ARGUE People playing DIABLO MMO would be more hard core then those playing WoW. Infact i bet we would see people leaving AoC and other MMO's to play D3 MMO.
Blizzard isnt above competition now.. AoC is a good game. And it is becoming very popular. So why not STICK it to AoC with a Diablo MMO that graphics rival EQ2/AoC with fast passed PvP like WoW. But with a better spin on combat systems.
You really have to expect blizzard to have known WoW would only last so long. and they would need a nother MMO to trump the rest and keep people in the BLIZZARD camp
Of course Blizzard is teasing us, hence the ice and symbols from Warcraft/Starcraft. They have to throw us off somehow because there is just so much evidence that Diablo 3 will be announced:
1. Job postings for Diablo universe 2. Diablo3.com domain takeover. Diablo3.de, diablo3.fr, diablo3.es, etc registered. 3. WWI on Diablo's B-day 4. Blizzard has stated team "3" working on a game. 5. Gaming Steve states that Diablo 3 is in development (AKA Beezlebub 3) 6. Xfire leaks game announcement. 7. PCAction's statement "Even if the hell froze and cows gave beer - we would spill nothig out!" and delayed follow-up until after WWI. 8. New Diablo WWI art depicts a much larger Diablo that is centered between characters from warcraft/starcraft. 9. the master.css file from Blizzard.com hints at ACT 5 areas of D2: LoD 10. Age restriction for those at WWI. 11. Additional hall needed at WWI 12. Peterconcept.com has "Project Hydra" coming soon then changes to "Shut down until 6.28.08" 13. D2 Patch 1.12 no-cd patch released; just like before Starcraft 2 was announced. 14. Richard A. Knaak says he isn't writing for a "dead game" 15. Phil Cook, voice of Deckard Cain, says "As for Diablo 3...I can neither confirm nor deny anything, under threat of torture and poisoning at the hands of Andariel...who may or may not return in...never mind." 16. Diablo trademark activity. 17. Blizzard has a splash image displaying all 3 worlds: Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo. Similar to last years timeline that showed all universes. Diablo and Warcraft games were shown in the timeline with Starcraft yet SC2 was announced! 18. Rob Pardo confirms game announcement: "So you want me to announce the game before our announcement?" he said. "No offense, but I think there's like 300 people here, and I'll be ripped apart by 8000 people there [at the Invitational] if I pre-announce it - but it's going to be really exciting. I think everybody here will be really excited about the announcement." 19. Many many other hints that I'm sure I am forgetting...
If you still have doubts or believe the announcment to be a SC/WC related game then please state the hints/leaks/evidence of such a game and then compare to this list. If there is anytime to announce D3 IT IS NOW!
