You realize that they need to release a patch for the expansion anyways? This wasn't just thrown together at the last moment to spit in GW2's face. They don't expect a patch to out do a game, it is fucking stupid to assume otherwise.
Game's get released on Tuesdays, blizzard always patches on Tuesdays. Would you like them to delay the patch because of a competitors game? No, they will go on doing what they have always done.
This is just a curse forum with a generic mmo name. Yes, its wow-centric. But no, its not wow's primary forum.
28 th is most probably the day of diablo 3 patch 1.04
Wow, I've lost my respect for Blizzard. Trying to sabotage GW2 with poor attempts, they're realesing Diablo 3 1.0.4 the last week of August (Around GW2 release date) And realesing WoW MoP pre-patch on the GW2 realese date. And then realesing MoP one month right after GW2 when they are usually realesing their expansions around December. Lmao, pathetic.
wow blizzard...that's rather underhanded...
Looks like a good week :S
27- my birthday
28- wow 5.0/ gw2
29- going from 1mb connection to bt infinity (fiber optic broadband)
Respecting a company? Why? All they care for is money... and they rightfully sabotage GW2! You won't be affected, don't worry!
Btw... I'm sure Anet would have done the same were the circumstances the other way round!
Beauty > Personality
Glad to finally have the date for the patch! Cant wait for it.
For the wow haters & Gw2 lovers.. I dont get why you even bother commenting here. They need to release the patch sometime anyway. I bet that the same persons complaining, whining and badmouthing Blizzard in this thread would so so regardless of date or size of this patch. Some people in this thread also seem to believe that this is supposed to be some major content patch. Well, it's not. It's not supposed to. it's a PRE-EVENT for the expansion.
Just relax, play what you want and have fun. Be glad that GW2 soon is out and WoW soon has a new expansion. Tons of fun will be had! Leave your hate towards wow or any other game for yourself.
