It's blue, it's crystalline, it looks like someone cracked the inside of a geode with a fluorescent lamp. Am I seeing things? Is that a face peeking out of the left side of the drawing with an inward spiral bored into the forehead? Faint reddish quasi-runic lines just below the ice-like veneer?

The source code for the page refers to the picture as "icefield," suggesting Blizzard may be planning to "melt" away sections of the splash over coming days.

See the full-sized picture for yourself. It's what you hit when you type www.blizzard.com into a browser, and it's up mere days before the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational, where StarCraft 2 was announced last year. This year, the rumor mill's been hard at the business of proclaiming the imminent arrival of Diablo 3.

No. Read the comments on that link Blade posted.

Today (monday) there are 2 runes visible (yeah, one was added) and they are the shael (first one) and hel (second one) runes from Diablo II. There is even more proof.

Also, check this out:

Looks like it's starting to melt :rolleyes:.

I have never felt this excited. I can't wait for them to say its Diablo.

I tihkn in Diablo 3, Hell will have actually froze over. :thup:
 
I personally think that it's alot more similar to the rune on Frostmourne than the diablo rune

If you look closely they arent very alike.
 
> Wraith of the lich king
Yeap.

They just might have used their texture resources for that image, so that's why there are Diablo-rune-like images.
 
why would they make all this hype for something that they already announced? What, it will melt away to show arthas? No, no, I don't think that will be it.

Notice:

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/wrath/

It has already been anounched, they already gave the details for it.

--------------------

and Blizzard recentrly aquired the diablo3 domain. Hum...
 
There is no need to make a teaser for an expansion and a game that was already announced before hand.
 
No to Wc4 or anything else except Diablo III. Also, look carefully, there are some red lines around that crack ;).

And there various things that point to diablo... Let's hope Blizzard wouldn't crush the hearts of all diablo lovers announcing something else :p.

And yeah, I don't think it will be WotLK because they already announced that. Why make something so complicated like pictures chaning every day and stuff like this for something everyone knows about alreay? :rolleyes:

Because it's ice, it doesn't necesarilly means it's linked to the Lich King ;).

EDIT: And yes, Pineapple is right. www.diablo3.com no longer redirects to the page with the petition for the diablo III or whatever was that (can't remember the correct link), but it just shows a page cannot be displayed :p.
 
Someone speculated that 5 runes will appear ( one each day, so there come 5 days ;) ) and they will form a pentagram, with the crack in the middle. Guess who's comming outta there :p.

Dammit, I want Warcraft 4, but the evidence is undeniable. This is going to be Diablo 3.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
