    How can you not care for something that you've seen literally no assets for? For all you know it might cater to your exact specific tastes and be the best game you'll ever play.

    Don't judge something before you know anything about it.

    I only care about WoW. So it would have been a boring Blizzcon for me anyway. At best they would have just talked about the next patch.

    Everything Blizzard has said points to sooner than that. They stated as recently as this week that they intend to release expansion content quicker than they have in the past. If MoP were released November 2012 that would put it 2 years after Cataclysm, which came 2 years after Wrath, which came 2 years after BC. To release XPac content 'quicker', they would need to release before Fall 2012. I'm sure they will. I actually think we're very close to the alpha/beta.

    Also they said recently that the version of MoP played at Blizzcon was 'far into development'. Another clue that MoP is closer than some think. I'm sure they'll hit their Q2 target. Then they'll hold Blizzcon early 2013 and announce WoW X5 and Titan.

    is a new MMO set into sci-fi/futuristic setting and being created by Blizzard. That's plenty of reason to be interested IMO

    Blizzard has been aiming for annual expansions for the past 3 expansions. I havent heard anything about an alpha for MoP yet, and the beta is generally at least 3 months. If an alpha begins soon I could see a summer release, and it would make sense for it to be summer given when we got 4.3. A full year of just 4.3 wont sit well with most people.

    Source to back this up?
    I will not say that I am guilty, for that denotes shame. Nor will I protest innocence, for I claim no such. Let the comedy begin.

    No source, but there were some quotes from a while back about it being heavily FPS based. Now that could mean we'll be chucking spears and shooting bows, but more likely a sci-fi based game......or it could be something completely off the wall like a wild west, or WW2 game but I doubt it. At this point, no-one in the community knows anything, all we can do is talk about probabilities.

    Do you know how many subscriptions they'll lose if they try dragging 4.3 out all the way till November? Lot's.

    We're also heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible. In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013.
    Right, I believe that.

    D3 is going to be out 1st quarter, I'm betting; it is "done" but for some reason they're going back and making nibbling changes now. Heart of the Swarm... not sure on an ETA, but they're not exactly designing fresh systems or gameplay engines for this; it's effectively a Starcraft 2 Expansion. Mists of Pandaria is also an expansion, building off a set engine with set dev tools.

    No more "jam packed" then when these games were in full development for the past few years...

    What we know for sure:

    -Is a next-gen MMO
    -Blizzard team behind it is nearly 100 people, close to enter full production mode. This was said by Rob Pardo in Blizzcon 2011

    Why have a Blizzcon about shit we've already seen. Went last year and was semi-disappointed. Had a lot of fun but it was nothing compared to the Con of 09

    .....I had every bit of hope in Blizzard invested in the fact that Titan would be released in Blizzcon 2012....now its gone....dammit.

    It doesnt matter when or how long the beta or alpha is going to be for MOP. They are not going to drop an expansion in the middle of the summer when they could stall a few months and release it for black friday or the holiday shopping season. Every expansion was released around this time other than TBC because it slipped past with delays. They make major bank on these expansions and they arent going to risk releasing in the summer when active player counts are at a lull. If they feel the player base is getting too vocal or subs are dropping more than expected during the pre summer they will simply drop Halion 2.0 which consists of 1 room with annoying trash that takes too long and 1 boss with a +3 item level over what is currently available.

    That's not the point i'm making at all. It's about perception.

    Blizzcon was always touted as being 'for the fans'. People were already increasingly upset about the ticket costs being raised more than 75% over the last 3 years. Add to that the 'drama' of last year's Blizzcon.

    People are also fed up with Cataclysm. With MoP likely not being until fall, Wow's last Cata content patch a month or so ago, and the guaranteed beta for the 'yearbies' not starting until summer, there's half a year of some very unhappy customers. D3 could be the second coming of (insert something really cool here), but if history has shown us anything, people will still choose WoW as Blizzard's flagship game.

    Add to that the inclusion of SWTOR and GW2 scheduled for around the same time as MoP, and it just seems (at least to me), it's a very bad time to cancel one of the few remaining fan-centric activities that Blizzard participates in.

    Why wouldnt they? And Black Friday? lol They will NOT wait that long. Losing too many subs, and with GW2 coming out VERY soon. Yeah it will be out at end of summer.

    Kinda why they didnt want to have a Blizzcon.

    2+2=4 not chair.
