MMO-Champion - Patch 4.3 now available on the Background Downloader
Patch 4.3 now available on the Background Downloader
In an effort to save my PM box from imploding, I had to do a breaking news to tell everyone that the Patch 4.3.0 is now available on the background downloader for both EU and US players.

It doesn't actually mean much, it just means that we reached the point where Blizzard is comfortable enough to release most of the static assets to the live client while they finish polishing the PTR one. There was no release candidate build on the test realms and I don't really see the patch happening right now, you can all calm down.

    I expect it to be released sometime before the 20th of dec. in all honesty. I've said that for.. quite a while now. Here's to hoping i dont get flamed again for having "no proof" -_- But yeah, I still say this patch is "supposed" to be blizzards answer to the release of tor, and every holiday release in general, to try and sucker players into playing for a little longer vs switching to tor/other games.

    Is thinking 22nd/29th November. Most likely 29thDoubt be later than that so they can put the new Darkmoon fair on live for a full week rather than changing in the middle/ waiting till Jan.

    "4.2.0a.14480-to-4.2.2.14545" The last one for US players. All my friends across US got the same old patch. No sign of 4.3

    It won't, believe me. They only just put in the Darkmoon Faire content on the PTR today, there's also more raid tests to be done... A lot of work to do yet and I don't see Blizzard releasing 4.3 when there's still a lot of guilds struggling on Ragnaros (remember how 4.1 came without Firelands?). My guess is mid-December at the earliest.

    It doesn't take a (marketing) genius to figure it out:It's coming out Dec 13 because SW:ToR is coming out a week later...

    My guess is December 6th. Purely for the hope that if it's released at the beginning of the month we'll get the fair right away!

    honestly if blizzard were smart they would wait to release 4.3 until after the holidays...everyone during christmas time (which arguably can be anywhere from december 18 to January 1 or 2) becomes extremely busy and really theres limited time to be taking advantage of the last tier patch of the expansion. blizzard will wait until all the holiday commotion dies down to release deathwing. this would be the optimal time to retain the satisfaction they're looking for. everyone can calm down about the patch coming out like... next week. that's stupid.

    EDIT: didn't say this before, but my realistic guess as to when 4.3 will be out will be January 9

    Blizzard get the patch out already and 4.4 as well so I can get Mists of Pandaria for my World of Warcraft and probably get the Collector's Edition and then the game guide.

    Doesn't 15gb for a patch seem a bit over the top? For me personally it's gonna be a hassel due to living in Australia, and our ISP's having retarded download limits :/
