So, the blue-ish parts are playable areas and the yellow-ish parts are destroyed/underwater/fire covered/otherwise unplayable ground?

I feel like it's more bluish-gray is the current zones and red is the new ones with yellow being the "buffer" between zones that currently exists. It doesn't look like they've put in the 'destroyed' parts on that map.

The bluish stuff is water....

Saying the blue-ish area is water is putting the Barrens underwater, which we all know is not true (from the trailer). I like the buffer idea because it has been said that Thousand Needles is submerged and on this map it is shaded in blue, which from looking at other zones, cannot be water.

The Blue = WaterThe Grey = CURRENTLY accessible areasYellow = Currently inaccessible, mountains, unfinished terrain etc.Red = New ZonesYes, there really is that much land inaccessible in the current game

Another idea is that the art devs were like "Hey, lets just take a map of Azeroth, recolor it, and show it to people so that they just guess for 8months until we actually release a map! Oh yeah, draw an island in the middle instead of the Whirlpool"

The red voted McCain, the blue voted Obama.

It's actually an underwater ruin/city under the maelstrom not an island on top

Is anyone else feeling a bit of nostalgia over this reskinning of our old world playground? Frankly it is depressing to see all of the destruction. Are some instances gone? It looks like Wc is underwater and maybe Brd too. I sincerely hope that they do not destroy our classic instances. What about cities. Ironforge and crossroads may be underwater too? The whole Silithus zone is gone??? This is seriously stressing me out.

SIlithus is not gone. Bottom right of kalimdor in grey. The circular one next to it is un'goro. I think you've misinterpreted the map. The grey area doesn't mean underwater, it's simply the current zones. Disasters and what not aren't shown on the map, just new areas and old areas

Well I hope Adam can come up with more info on this and maybe a legend.for the map.
