MMO-Champion - PTR Build 14313, Season 9 end on June 28th, Tier 12 Final Model/Color Preview
Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14313
Another bugfix build has been deployed on test realms tonight. That one really didn't have any interesting changes and it looks like the June 28th release date shouldn't be reported, I'll assume Blizzard is done at this point.


End of Season 9 Postponed for 1 Week
The patch won't hit the live servers next week and as predicted, it means the Arena Season will end later than expected.

[...] Unfortunately, there are many logistical reasons for why we needed to push back the end date to the 28th. Keep in mind our original announcement said it could end "as early as June 21." It wasn't an absolute confirmation of the end date. The announcement now says it could end "as early as June 28", which means it's still not guaranteed to end that day. It just depends on if all of our other ducks are in a row.

    It would be a great thing, if they change the colors from the tier sets in dependence with the spec. For example: The blue dk set for the frost tree, the red for the blood and the green for the unholy. Or an another example: The purple mage set for the arcane, blue for frost, red for fire. That's push up the individuality of the chars.
    Do you really think that the "loss" of 0.02% of the player base is making Blizzard worried? Hell no, the monthly fluctuations are nothing more than that

    Now that I'm looking at it properly, they really screwed the pooch with Mage T11/12. Why? Because they completely jumped the gun. This should have been T11, and the Firelord set should've been T12. I mean, it has goddamn Ragnaros' face on it; it would've made since that Ragnaros' crib drops shit that looks like Ragnaros!
    Oh, but I actually prefer the regular set for Mage this time around. Not that purple is bad at all, I just like the orange/black better.

    Rogue looks real nice. And yay purple for warlock. Hopefully I can get that set in full.

    He already did one, just go back a few pages.

    IMO Warrior still looks like The Destroyer from Thor...especially with that helm, imo makes it pretty badass.

    Push back 4.2? Another week of farming! yay /wrists

    Personally, the white version was a lot more badass.

    I also liked this color, well the three of them, but the schemes chosen make more sense with other tiers.
    What I love is how the helm looks on undead compared to the preview in Humans. Full face covered for the win!

    Sooooo.... your saying you turn into a female when using the heroic version? Does it happen gradually as your wear the items until you reach full set or just need one item upgraded?

    I'm totally not liking the fact that they're using the red colored version of the mage set for normal modes and purple sheiz for heroic modes, should be the other way around :< Since firelands theme is fire (aka red colored) :/

    Red is fine for normal sets. Makes it harder spot casuals who stand in fire.

    Learn your math. The loss was a hell of a lot more than .02%. The 600k is a 5% loss in subscriber base AND thats assuming that initial loss is the only loss they've had in customer base. I look around the realm I look around my guild and I see a lot more active player loss than that. Maybe they havent unsubscribed yet, but I've seen 2 entire 25 man guilds gutted down to 2 players where the rest of them just quit playing and moved onto other games. No they didnt jump guilds, their toons are still there. No they didnt go to alts. Pretty much all of them have said they're done with caty and may be back next xpac. I dont think thats an abnormal number and that my realm or experience is "unique". You can be a frog standing in a pot of water as it boils on the stove and not feel the heat rising about you or you can take off the myopic blinders and see what is really happening.

    Leave it to PVP to screw with PVE yet again!




    And before someone gets all huffy, there was sarcasm in that post.

    Bad choice of colour for the heroic hunter legs. Look at the last image of the male model. You'll see what I mean.
