May this be the title of our subsequent expansion? Can Minecraft servers of us anticipate to be rolling monks or deciding whether or not to make our new panda on the Alliance or Horde aspect inside the subsequent yr or two?

It's tough to say for certain. Faked leaks apart, I am on a wait and see strategy. As it is, I don't suppose this guarantees something. It might be for one thing completely totally different, or it could possibly be a "simply in case" thing. I've seen enough trademarked Harry Potter titles that never noticed the sunshine of day to not be wary. Then once more, it could simply be my own bias creeping in. I'm still hoping for an expansion that is pure Alliance vs. Horde. However hey, if nothing else, no less than we acquired that candy panda sketch from Anne.
