Wow, let's see how many wild-ass speculation articles we can have per day for the next year, year and a half.

I agree. Speculation is a fool's game and needs to stop.

No guys, these speculators have a point. Textures found in-game OBVIOUSLY point to the next races, its TOTALLY LOGICAL. Its obviously some sort of conspiracy.>_>I think some people are ignoring that goblins and worgen have a connection to Halloween more than the crazy stories they've made up. Shit during Halloween you could get transformed into a goblin.

I believe they keep doing speculation articles is because Summer is the worse time of year, so nothing new comes, so they try to continue something for as long as, just to keep people reading. I do like to read these, they're interesting, but I do agree, continuing them for so long get's tedious.

Wow, let's see how many "I don't like speculation" comments we can have per post per day for the next year, year and a half.Don't like it? Don't read it. The god damned HEADLINE says that it's about Goblins and Worgen.Do you read a newspaper and complain loudly about how much you hate the sports section, while still reading it?Quit yer bitchin.

Heh, does seem like every other article contains the words "goblins and worgen". I agree that it's all got the barest of foundations. A lot of gullible people are going to be very dissapointed, thanks to wowinsider.

@Sengir: I completely agree.Take a look at the opening statement of this article: "Ever since word broke about the possibility of playing either a worgen or a goblin..." Word did not "break" about the "possiblity" of playing a worgen or a goblin. All that was discovered was new masks with new artwork on them. THAT'S IT! Everything else is just speculation. @Vell: I agree. Leave this to the forums.@Jay: You're completely dead-on. New masks, that's it. It'd be fun to pretend you're a goblin or a worgen for Halloween. (Gnome being the scariest of all, of course.)@Alch: Lets! I don't like speculation.The only reason why this is getting any attention at all is the interview with Tom Chilton where he says Blizz likes to "pre-seed" races into the game. However, this was not true with Draenei. In addition, we didn't get a single new playable race with WotLK.Yes, it's fun to speculate, but why not include ogres, murolcs, vrykul and naga too? They ALL appear in the collections of masks, seen here: http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2009/july/10128masks.jpgIt's fine to discuss, but let's not over-hype something to the point where masks turn into rumors that turn into "possibilities" that turn into articles on how to RP the new upcoming races in the next expansion *cough* allegedly *cough*.

Hey guys, you know what's fun? Bringing down people on the internet! God, I love doing that! Ever since that bully stole my lunch money in the third grade, I really just like making sure other people don't have fun... on the internet, where I have power, thanks to anonymity.

@Alchemistmerlin:his point is that when we come to wow.com we don't want to see the same damn story every single time when there could be other articles in it's place. Like when MJ died and thats all we saw on the new... got pretty old pretty fast.

Its not hurting anything to ponder the infinite directions the game can move towards. The great thing about WOW is that it is very open to all sorts of possibilities. It has so many doors that one could spend hours peeking into the keyhole of. I love speculation, it gets me hopeful when times are slow.

It also seems ridiculous to think we're a year, year and a half away from knowing this. We knew about Draenei and Blood Elves long before BC actually came out.I believe we'll get some actual information in less than a month at BlizzCon. I think they're going to announce the next expansion at the very least, and I wouldn't be surprised if new races/classes are covered if they're coming.

The haters are really just jealous that they weren't the first to come up with the theory, or the first to datamine these textures out. I hope they have never secretly wished to wield Warglaives or Frostmourne (or Ashbringer, for that matter) before they were(are) released in the game. Because that would fall under speculation, won't they?
7-27-2009 @ 3:51AM
Look I totally understand you guys who say the masks aren't proof enough. I did some searching around on MMO Champ and found a link to some video proof that was datamined out of the PTR files that confirm animation for new worgen models. Speculation is one thing but you can't argue with facts. Check it out for yourself:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edaJP3Lp0Gg

It would be one thing if it were just baseless speculation, but the case built for having playable Worgen and Goblins does make sense. There wouldn't have been any story at all if all we had to go on was a post someone made on a forum somewhere saying "Goblins and Worgen playable next expansion." The fact that there's evidence of any sort that could logically point toward the drawn conclusion is inevitably going to fuel the fires of speculation.Have some fun with it, everybody else seems to be.
