lol timing it with GW2 eh...
...should I repent? D:
Also I find it pathetic how people seem to get a virtual boner from seeing that Blizzard does something on the same day as another gaming company..."Omgosh it means they're afraid of this new game that hasn't even been proven a success yet"...kinda like Starship troopers, "IT'S AFRAID!!"...-_-. People.
Why people want Classic back; In Classic, you'd be considered a winner and a "hardcore" simply by reaching max level, having a few pieces epic gear and being able to stand the horrible logistics demands.
Today, you need actual gameplay skills to get somewhere worth mentioning. So much class theorycrafting, awareness of both your class mechanics as well as those of other players/hardest tuned bosses aimed at only 1% downing them whilst they're current.
Releasing this the same day at G2w is a clear sign Blizzard is concerned with GW2 taking a bite out of them.
Ha ha, called it! Blizz just proved they are intimidated by GW2 and have done the cowardly thing of releasing the patch on it's release day to try and steal it's thunder, without having to worry about the their thunder being stolen for the release of MoP.
Personally, I'll be playing GW2 early release, then check out 5.0 on its release if the servers stay up. No conflict here...
To all WoW fans,
You guys should pray for GW2 to be good.
Without competition Blizzard will continue releasing content patches every 10 months or so...
Look at it another way, for those who will play in both games, it's just a great chance to "start"
All in one patch, but ofcourse it is a small, minor patch -.- Some people...
Currently playing MMO's: FF14:ARR --- Played MMO's before: WoW, Wildstar, Tibia, Meridian59, Ultima Online, EQ, Rift, Lotro, GW2, AOC, WHO, EQ2, SW:TOR, ESO, SW:G,
Each with his o2n but isn't Blizz launching the prepatch 4 days after GW2? Does that show fear,in my opinion it doesn't you must have a bit of time to test everything that is added in the 5.04 prepatch before MoP hits, and this gives you 3 weeks and some spare change so I don't think this pre patch launch is solely to counter GW 2 but to also give us some time to adjust a bit to everything,at least that's my take on things.
Havnt been on the beta, so really looking forward to the new talent system coming out
