You people seem to be misunderstanding a leak somewhat. You're right that MMO Champion isn't Blizzard. However, if Blizzard was the one saying these things, then it wouldn't be a leak, it would be an anouncement. A leak is when information comes an anonymous person close to the source transmitting info via a third party. Using an example, an employee who wants to share info about what his company is doing but not get his ass fired for doing so will give out information to a reporter or blogger, and ask to keep his identity secret to protect his job. The 3rd party then anounces the information, maintains that it comes from a credible source, but will not tell you the source due to their obligation to protect the person's job. That's how a leak works. You are then left to decide for yourself whether the information is real or not, based on the track record provided by the 3rd party. If the 3rd party is known for lying, then yes, you don't believe it. In this case, MMO Champion is known for being very accurate, so all this leaked information is most likely to be true, especially with Blizzcon coming up this weekend where an official anouncement will be made (in my experience, the closer an information leak is made to the time of the actual anouncement, the more often it seems to be accurate). While not blindly accepting everything you read as fact is a good thing to practice, neither should you shout down every bit of information that isn't officially anounced as a 'fanboy's wishlist'.
