Release date: January 2013
Why would people think its going to release November/December? Raid testing is ongoing, PTR patch soon..? Personally thinking of a September release date.
i think the whole july/august spec. is just wishful thinking with no hint of realism. The earliest I see it is september
I'm going for an 18th September release date. Gives them ~one month after the trailer to build up marketing materials (I assume they already have the digital media stuff ready to go) and anticipation. You don't really need more than a month after an announcement date to release a game now-a-days, especially with the great patching software now available.
Right now Blizzard is running a promotion for $10 for Battle Chest, Wrath, and Cata each. If you were to RaF, it would expire 10/7 I believe. I wouldn't doubt to see it come out right after the RaF expiration.
I think it will be november/december personally as they will want the xmas buyer and wait for the GW2 hype to have cleared
Short answer to get you curious...
1. it is NOT a console game nor a single player "one-shot purchase" game
2. It depends on residual income AKA subscriptions and services for its revenue, not its base box sales.
3. About 80% of its players are adults over the age of 21 NOT kids as some might believe (yes, this is backed by studies and fact that is linked in posts). Adults that Do NOT have to wait for Mommy and Daddy to buy the game for them at Christmas.
So for everyone's sanity... everyone please stop saying this.
1. A term used towards someone when a person disagrees with the said someone on a subject, person, place, thing, company, or product line and they are not smart enough to debate their counterpoints or facts, so they resort to childish name calling in hopes of shaming others into silence and thus them winning through dominance.* 2. A term used as a taunt/peer pressure technique to shape popular opinion through shame and humiliation.
People still making posts saying November/December.... *Sigh* Please be trolling....
The files that will be on the disc have probably already been finalized at this point, Cataclysm's files (4.0.0) were from early September 2010 and about a full three months before release.
Maybe it's because I'm tired or because of the unbearable weather but I'm in a extra pissy mood at the moment, probably both. >_<

You know what the thing is with "just around the corner"?
Answer: we don't know how far the corner is!
Soon = still soon........
Oh and to answer your question clearly: I really have no idea why it would be there more than 2 weeks. I even can't answer the question why it would be there 1 week.
Sorry here.... as far as I'm concerned, it could be there for a month.
Do you have an idea? Do you know what test-scenario they have for it? Do you even know what they want to test?
So now I know "soon" means "just around the corner".
Then my question now is: How far are we from the corner?

I'm growing my thirst, so I can drink a lot drinks from you after announcement though.

You said: "I assume" ....... well here you said it all.
I hope you understand what it means.. cause you start assuming and everything that follows you state as fact.
If I build a house on a boat, it doesn't matter how well the house is build, if the boat sucks, my house will drown.
I hope now, you can see it also being released late september? Early oct? Or even November?
And I also hope that you see that Blizzard is using those words just because they cannot give us anything?

Also, it's should HAVE. NOT "should of". "Should of" doesn't even make sense. If you think you should own a cat, do you say "I should of a cat" or "I should have a cat"? Do you HAVE cats, or do you OF cats?
I'm going with the september 18th release date mainly because that would give enough time for people to hit level 90 and do the hallows end event since they have level 90 gear in there this year. They wouldn't go with september 11th just because its still kind of a bad date for american customers. That's just my theory though.
What is the ilvl of the gear which is/was dropping in Midsummer just now?
I presume it was the current ilvl: 378 or even 384?
