I don't think they're trolling us. We have to take what they give us. C'mon. If you are hungry, you'd take pretty much everything to eat, no matter how qualitative it is.

"You already know too much" means that we must have something accurate in our predictions (or rumor section).

As much as I like believing things, this is a definite troll. If they've been this serious about secrecy, they won't drop around clues - they don't want to give us any clues. Let's not be silly here.

It definitely sounds like a joke to me and I think who wrote it had this epic troll video from the Onion Network in mind:

 

 

I'd really like to, but I can't take it seriously silverslide and I think we're definitely not supposed to. We'd just be confusing ourselves even more. I mean, it's not like we could deduce anything from it anyway. :p

Take everything you can get, and then make a list of all rumors and statements and see if there are some connections. Nothing's superfluous. Not even the obvious troll postings. While you would die of starvation I'd survive eating every breadcrumb I can get.

Take everything you can get, without sounding like a crackpot! D: We don't want to start thinking every single word out of Blizzard is actually a carefully layered message; we're not deluded here... only a little crazy.

Hey, babycakes... no need for hostility or immaturity, we're all friends in this community here. :) If you want to discuss this on PM maybe it's a better route of communication, we're veering this topic right off the rails here.

 

Token on-topic message:

 

I like the idea of keeping a log of the job descriptions, can't wait to see the Cinematics one get taken! :)

Probably stuff like armoury, leader boards etc. Ghostcrawler also hinted at guild websites at one point, I wouldn't hold my breath though.
