I'll probably be downrated by fanboys/girls for this but I feel it needs to be said.Why should disbelievers apologise? People have the right to believe what they want to, and you/mmo-champ come out and make huge claims and refuse to name sources. I was on the fence about it personally but just because you were right about some/most of the information posted doesn't mean people should have to apologise for not believing your claims that you refused to source.Also, I noticed alot the people complaining about Goblins are people who play Blood Elves... Ironic that when TBC was announced Horde players complained about Blood Elves being too pretty, and now Blood Elves are complaining about Goblins being too ugly. I look forward to the Goblins being playable and the expansion :)

Ah and I get downrated within minutes for stating my perfectly reasonable opinion :)Just a tip guys, the downrate is for trolls or uneducated fools who use leetspeak and QQ about WoW.

I don't think that they really expect people to apologize, it's just a joke, a funny way of saying "Told you so!"

i must not see what you're seeing. you're not greyed out or any less than two stars. unless you're just saying that preemptively. or clairvoyantly.

MMO-Champ and WOW.com posted this changes early enough... The only explanation that they knew was that their source was from the inside.. What is the meaning for you to tell you the source..? Do you think that they are stupid enough to post such "predictions" for the new expansion without have at least ONE reliable source? Why all you people whana know who is the source. In the article it says that next major features "MIGHT" be this and that. In the end they where right.So where is the whole deal here? Those two sites did great job you have to admit it.(Sorry for my English, i am not native speaker)

A news leak is just that - one that was not supposed to happen. It doesn't come from an official source and naming sources only serves to destroy trust in the disseminator, not bolster it. I don't think blog or news site would take the decision to use them lightly.However this leak was just part of the bigger discovery around the expansion and it's details, which was revealed through data-mining, patent applications and simple deductive insight.Personally, I have several friends who remained skeptical until the official announcements and they were all polite in their views. However the bulk of the vociferous posters online were not polite and clearly just wanted to reduce the credibility of the various websites. Credibility is the currency of these websites and so not only natural that they should reaffirm their accuracy after the fact.As for a tongue in cheek comment asking for all haters and disbelievers to apologise, it seems obvious to all but those that it references, that it is a joke. Apparently the egos of the those referenced are still too sore for jokes just yet.

@ joerendousWhen I posted it I was grayed, however after verifying my post it was back to normal. Too soon I spose.@ WitherI know they said it with tongue in cheek, however it was still a lame thing to say joke or not.

Is this where I apologize for doubting a report with apparently zero proof-reading? That MMO thing resembled a 4th grader's homework in parts.
