The point is moot, now. But just explaining why people were thinking that.
I can honestly say, I didn't see this coming so quickly.
Happy day though, I can play with Lightspring sooner! I'm going to name mine Kelesti. It will spit acidic fury healing at everyone that refused to click it in the years past, while it yells at them to stop asking for ToC Lightwell or they will be banned.
So, when the new season comes out, and the current season's gear moves down a peg to be available via Honor Points, what happens to last season's gear, which is currently available via Honor Points? Will that older season still be available via Honor? Will the weapons still be available? Will the cost be reduced?
"...the release of the pre-expansion 5.0.4 patch on Tuesday, August 28," I see what you did there, Blizzard.
The end of the most fail season has come to an end.. FINALLY!

And how was this not expected? I mean, it's not like Blizzard has *ever* released patches or expansions at or near the dates of releases of competition games. It's well played, but kind of shitty. Businesses will be businesses though.
Not too worried about it; I'll have been playing GW2 for 3 days by then
Thats my birthday!! Happy birthday to me!! I'll take the gift!
85: Paladin | Druid | Shaman | Warlock | Death Knight | Mage | Hunter | Rogue | Warrior | Priest
We now know all the dates we need:
Aug 16th - cinematic release
Aug 28th - pre MoP patch 5.0 release
Sept 25th - Mists of Pandaria release
Why must these comments be so full of GW2? Someone even said Blizzard is releaseing the expansion 3 months earlier than normal just to compete. Oh my goodness, yes, they should just wait with a finished product so that it doesn't possibly hinder the success of a "competitor". I see you have a lot of faith in the game you are moving to.
Note - I think/hope GW2 will have a smooth launch, but no need to make up numbers about it, my friend.
More reason to play Guild Wars 2 on launch day, yay!
Pre Launch Patch vs GW2, sorry no contest here, GW2 for sure. I won't be playing wow again until 1 month before tier 15 is released , that way I can just faceroll the content, faceroll the next content and unsub again.
Why must people compare games all the time like this? Are you that insecure about your choices in life that it even affects what games you decided to play? Honestly who cares what someone else will be playing.
OT: I'm excited This will hold me over until Borderlands 2 and then MoP release!
