Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Blizzard's artists are being arses.

The current picture can be a representation of every single one of their franchises.

The eyes can be the eyes of Diablo, random Protoss or the Lich King.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
I don't even need to click on a You-Tube link to know where it most likely heads.

Yup. I was right.

I think we are going to have to start considering Rick-Rolling under the Forum Rules.

That's kind of the point, though.

I don't mind it. It's certainly more fun than just announcing whatever it is.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
There comes a point in any meme where it changes from a mildly amusing joke to something that is simply annoying and un-funny and only done by people who simply cannot let it go.

Rick-Rolling reached that point several months ago.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
I dunno, if i check the blizzard splash screen only to get dramatically rick rolled, i would potentially be amused.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Heh, well, if the Splash Screen itself changed to a Rick-Roll then, yes, I'd be inclined to agree, but there's a certain 'Epic' factor to that which most certainly doesn't exist here.

 
Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
If you look at the splashscreen now.. I think It's like a protoss. The reflection of the eyes show some face.
Can it be a Xel'Naga?

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
My brother is convinced its Diablo III because there are several runes in the outer areas of the latest splash screen and the one rune in the top left is a Hel rune from Diablo II.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Apparently one of the Runes is also from Arthas' sword as well, the artists have been very clever

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
Zomg. It could be a Xel'Naga. Never thought of that ... But the only shot of the Xel Naga is from that black and white picture in the Starcraft manual.

Whoever thought of this splash screen thing was pretty smart. Have to admit its rather slick too.

Re: Blizzard Splashscreens
They changed it again. Its now pretty discernable as not a Death Knight. Its obvious that its either a Protoss or something we've never seen before.

... It seems to fit. Diablo and the eye picture. Oh, but the ridge in between the eyes doesn't fit.
