So on the last Blizz quarterly conference call, Mike Morhaime mentioned that the next time we'd hear about HotS would be on 3/9.

Anyone have any thoughts of what it could be?!? :D

Complete reveal of the new Terran lineup, along with the new and unimproved Carrier.

Inclined to go with the beta theory. Not sure what else Mike said, but I'd wager that if it's a general Blizz-franchise statement, we'd probably get a release date for Diablo III, making its own beta redundant. HotS steps in to replace beta in its place, as I don't see the expansion additions/removals changing too much at this point.

I actually agree with the idea of beta, I doubt they would have a whole lot of reason to delay the game (like others believe) unless the single player development is going TERRIBLY. So unless they need to retoole a lot, the next step would be multiplayer beta I think.

Hopefully, it's not another short cinematic teaser that indirectly spoils the entire story because there's just that few of them.

The art assets that would involve would make me wet.

Maybe they reveal a new Panda race for SC2

The only thing they could show us is more campaign stuff or what modifications they made to the multiplayer since October 2011...Unless they announce something about a beta.

Or, it could be that things changed and they won't show us anything anymore today.

Fake. Rumor.

Roffles. That's hilarious. I didn't even think about this. I listened to the call 3 times. So odd lolz.

Well this week is now shit. First the disappointment that is Mass Effect 3, and now this.

You found ME3 disappointing? Aside from the way the endings were handled...The rest was quite good.

Endings were, indeed, disappointing. Rest of the game was solid.

User starts a viral rumor that turns out to be false = temp ban

I post in a thread asking if a past-release-date replay pack had been released yet = permanent ban

Fuck TeamLiquid

And that's why we shouldn't make threads that are based on TL threads. Original posts please.

I wouldn't say we shouldn't do it again. It got a couple friends to come out of the woodwork.. aye? *grins slightly*

Oh, btw, hi!

No kidding... One of the guys I know posted a comment about some SCBW Vod, where he said how casters weren't professional and could do better cast than that, and he got banned.

Wasn't as bad as I was expecting. At least it wasn't utterly cliche. I was expecting something like the following (stolen from Andrew on b.net forums):

ME3 begins with Shepard staring longingly at a picture of the Illusive Man. Throughout the game Shepard desperately tries to redeem the Illusive Man, forgiving him of his myriad of sins. The game ends with Shepard carrying a naked prone Illusive Man from the remains of a building. Illusive Man squints as Shepard bares him into the light, "Shep?" he whispers.
"It's okay, I gotcha," he replies confidently.

Jeez. What kind of professional game company would end their game with a corny ending like that? Sheesh.

If a game ever did that, I would burn my cop-- oh wait, I think I have a game like that. Which one was it? I'll scavenge my collection and see; I must burn it!
