        If you take 2 seconds to read the webpage it states:

     

    "Things the May 1 Announcement are not:

    1. It is not an official announcement of Diablo 3

    2. It is not about an upcoming Diablo novel

    3. It is not a Network merge



    Only Blizzard Entertainment may make an official announcement of games, unless we had a leak. However, we have no leaks. We know as much as you do whether or not there will or not be an announcement at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals. We do have our own set of theories such as the Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals ending the same day Diablo II was released (June 29 2000) and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction expansion being released (June 29, 2001). We will all have to wait and see what happens."

    hehehe the nub! :P

    You're the nub Anyways It's just something someone said in thread like this before, I didn't read the site because I'm not really interested in another Diablo atm, but that could change if it gets allot of hype. I'm all about following the flock.

    Unless it has to do with their next-gen mmo anything else wouldn't be shocking but I guess one never knows until we hear it from Blizzard.

    This should be great, I mean after all Diablo's one of the greatest games of all time, and Diablo 3 has a lot to live up to.

    Ya that was some new there...

    Diablo3.com holders get a nice wad of money and change a domain name. While this hints at maybe Diablo3 is cooking doesn't mean jack, there was no need for a clocked news. Kinda pissed about it actually since it's completely nothing... /sigh

    Heh, and if you read the full post, they didn't get squat for the domain. Blizzard wanted it, and took it. Of course, Blizz was nice enough to give them time to adjust. There was no way they could have charged Blizz for the domain, since Diablo is Blizz IP and that site has been used up until now for Diablo-related things, therefore showing a direct tie to Blizzards' IP if the idiots had tried to fight Blizzard in court over it.

    So, in a nutshell, these guys just showed their immense stupidity with their little stunt, AND got manhandled by Blizzard. So, all was not a wash.

    Blizzard would have had to buy the domain out from them or a the service provider, they ment Blizzard wasn't making them rush and shove their shit out to grab the domain quicker. It doesn't matter what name is in a domain if you own it you own until it expires or you sell it.

    Yeah but Rosie could make a black hole be considered small.  She just absorbs so much space.

    You can transfer a domain from one to another without selling it. And I'm betting that's exactly what they did. Like I said, if they tried to charge Blizz ( as in "We want 1 million dollars for the domain name!" ), they'd have lost before they even began. And a domain is only like $50 a year tops. So I'm sure Blizz would have sprung for the transfer fees, maybe.

    Anyway, not worth arguing about. It's just my view of what I think happened. Don't really know for sure.

    Actually they could of charged Blizzard.  Blizzard does not hold any right over the name www.diablo3.com.

    By the way, I was right. www.diablofans.com/forums/showthread.php

    They of course play it off.

    Quote "Mockery granted the domain name in mutual agreement ... a fan himself, he was glad to. There was no sale. It was given free."

     

    They got nothing for the domain.
