For some odd reason, I kind of hope that in Diablo 3 you are the final remaining whisp of Diablo's fractured "self" and you have to prey (as a ghost like force that influence mortals to act more agressively) on peasants and possess animals until you regain enough strength to knock someone unconcious, corrupt his or her soul and use that fallen person's body to amass sufficient power to conquer the world.

You build a cult of followers, bind demons, raise multitudes of undead, erect terrible semi-molton basalt fortifications, corrupt spirits and mortals, and just wreck stuff. You are also pursued by the disfigured soul of the hero of Tristram who, along with the shade of Tal Rasha, has liberated, and gathered legions of angry fallen souls tormented, ruined, and enslaved by the darker powers of the Sin war and gathered them into a host of wraiths. They call themselves the penitents and seek to earn some measure of redemption and vengeance.

The enemies would be armies of goodguys sent to stop you and keep you away from certain artifacts, rival demons and their servants, and of course the angels themsleves enter the fray. The world is in flux and stands ripe for what seems like it must be the last battle.

If you make it to the "end"of the plot the last scene is of your armies approaching the gates of a silver fortress on the borderlands of heaven as a great sparkling host of angels and the honored dead moves forward to intercept you...

(Which sets up a sequel.)

I think that's the one.

If you brighten up the new splash screen you can make out the 'crystal' design in the center of his forehead.

...what a disappointment.

Are the protos all wrinkly though?

That isn't armour. The texture isn't metal, it's bone and it looks like it's sticking out of a shoulder.

Holy shit it looks like a wizard with a pointy hat and long beard.

CANNOT UNSEE

How could you possibly see that from such a pic :lol

I'm only guessing it's sticking out of a shoulder by where it's positioned. It could be anywhere and its rough texture looks like bone or something like that not smooth metal and the way to flattens out makes it look like it's sticking out of something.


..........ok, I guess it is a bit wishful. >_>

At this point you guys are only digging up evidence trying to support your own theory. This isn't very creative and exactly what blizzard's intention was.
Actually that's what you all have been doing for the past 2 days

If it is a starcraft MMO wouldn't it be called Space of StarCraft (SoS) not World of StarCraft(WoS)?

The same way WoW works. You pay Blizzard a monthly fee, and they make you feel happy. :D

Haha very funny. I'm talking about what would actually happen in the game? Isn't it an RTS?

How the heck would a Starcraft MMO work, anyway?

StarCraft and Warcraft both were in the same genre, so I don't see what the issue is here. WoW wasn't the first game in the franchize, you know.
