o.O 

 

 

I hope this type of openness continues. Unless they are trolling.

It has to be troll. They have been silent for so long and Rob Pardo hinted information is coming on Blizzcon. Why announce anything at this point and not wait for Blizzcon?

Balls is not a secret or active project, so its build-up is not based on the same principles as WoW's expansions. I could see them start giving some info a few weeks before Blizzcon, to raise the hype a bit, get people acquainted with the game and interested in seeing more.

 

I definitely was not expecting this, but now that I think of it, it would make sense.

 

And it's a Blizzard official account, can't be just some cheap trolling. Can it?

I have been taking undocumented notes about the times Blizzard announces things. It's always around 12pm Californa time. We may get our first look at Blizzard's Balls in 45 minutes!!! (Ummmm blizzard's bal.... Nvm... )

Poor guy. I bet that made his day to be the single person who was told by Blizzard themselves, that All Stars would be revealed the following day. Can you imagine the High you would feel? I'd be bragging on sites, checking twitter every 5 minutes, and telling my wife and kids how cool I am (which really makes my look more uncool). Well played Blizzard, this is a troll for the books. 


And it's a Blizzard official account, can't be just some cheap trolling. Can it?

It was a bit unnecessary to troll the guy. He tweeted that he had a bad day and needed something to cheer him up and they troll him.

I think it's more about the social media guy promising something without making sure the plans hadn't changed or were not going to change. Basically not fully being in the inner circle of Balls development / marketing.

 

I still think an announcement will come at some point this week or the next.

 

Trolling people like this, through what is a bad and cheap joke, is definitely not something Blizzard would do from an official account.


Edit:

Agreed, hopefully it was just a case of miscommunication. Otherwise, Morhaime is going to go to town on some people.

Nah, it's a fan commissioned trailer. Blizzard like Carnot animations. A nice little teaser.

What this jeans is that we don't even know WoW expansion name now, let alone what it is about :( I was sure it was hots.
