    April Fool's 2012 - predictions?

    What do folks predict for blizzard's April Fool's Joke this year?
    For those that don't know - every april fool's day, blizzard comes up with "witty yet fake" announcements for their various games.

    I recall announcements of:
    • Archivist Class (fake D3 class)
    • Horadoric Cube App (Fake D3 ipod app)
    • Orge Class (fake 2-player character class for WoW - really great - relied on both players being logged in at the same time; playing same physical character)
    • And who could forget Crabby!! (Dungeon helper for WoW - like the paper clip dude from Microsoft Products)

    Anyone have suggestions/predictions for Blizzard for this year?

    RMAH scroll of resurrection for HC characters

    New D3 difficulty level - "You can't win!" For all the epic players that clear inferno within the first week of release.

    Titan announcement - Will be a MMO app for your smartphone

    D3 new classes - Classic D2 options, with ability points, skill trees and special item drops like runes

    Probably something much more interesting than my lame ideas!

    I like the "titan announcement" from Eeryck!
    That's crazy enough for a certain critical mass of ppl to believe it.
    Makes for a perfect fake announcement!

    Great ideas so far :p

    Re: April Fool's 2012 - predictions?

    Some of you mentioned Diablo 3 delay/cancellation announcement - I don't think Blizzard would touch that with the proverbial 10-foot pole. Too much bad blood and it would lead to the Blizzard Campus being raided and sacked.

    And by sacked I definitely mean a teabag joke involving at least two CMs and a lead designer.

    All joking aside, that's actually a great idea.

    New Diablo 3 peripheral: The Hardcore Headset
    The earpieces have contacts which will shock you for 1mill volts if your HC char gets killed.

    You die in the game, you die in real life!

    This is the most intense idea that i've seen so far, as well as the date pushback joke - I agree that tons of violence may occur.

    Crabby will be revamped with new heuristic AI features and added as a mandatory companion for D3 in both HC and SC. Now controls for skill hotkey assignments and all tooltips will be subsumed into Crabby's "helpful" care, being only accessible through Crabby. In fact, Crabby will be making those decisions for you, unless you can persuade (him/her/it) otherwise...

    Also Gem Shrines will be added, but only in PVP arenas, once the PVP patch is finished. Slain characters will, of course, drop any gems in their inventory.

    This :p.

    HOnestly, a delay gag is waaaay too cruel for Blizzard - there'll be too many people who'll take it seriously despite the April 1 date. :p
