    So... extended maintenance means... patch tomorrow?

    Does this mean the patch is tomorrow?

    Doubt it, they posted info last week (the 13th) about how we would have time to get 3000 valor points saved for the patch, which puts it at around 2 weeks till patch from tomorrow/wednesday.

    I assume they are doing stuff to prepare for the patch or something else related to battle.net.

    They haven't ended the pvp season or taken the ptr down yet. Usually when they do that then the patch is usually imminent.

    No, just prep for 5.2 and HoTS coming out soon. As well, not all raid testing even close to done.

    There were plenty of times where a major patch was released with the PTR still up. And considering they haven't even begun 25 man testing yet, the likelyhood of the patch coming tomorrow is highly unlikely. Speaking of which, they said the patch is coming out the 26th, that's next week, I don't see them fitting in 25 man normal/heroic testing along with 2 10man heroic bosses by that time

    When did they say that? I wasn't aware there was ever a set release date.

    They didn't. It was pushed back further so we still have 2+ weeks. It's not getting released on the 26th.

    They still haven't published the pvp blog which is 2 weeks before the patch. We have 2+ weeks still.

    Starcraft has 12 hour maint too. It's battle.net in general for the huge delay not a patch. Though I'm sure they will have more 5.2 stuff pushed on live to be downloaded to smooth the transition and a ptr update between now and tommorow.

    Starcraft has a really large patch (pre-expansion patch) coming too.

    It says "in a few days"
    Pretty much confirm it is this week.
    Unless 12 days counts as few days.

    Last week they said that they were planning on a February 26th release date, but they then said they were going to be unable to make that. Although, I don't think Blizz would just throw out a random date and try to reach it. I'm gonna say there's a 95% chance of it being on 5th/6th of March. It will certainly not be earlier, and I really doubt it will be later. Although I'm all for it being pushed to March 12th.

    and the day after the 26th 'announcement' which wasn't really one... it was walked back... infact... it was announced that it was NOT the 26th....

    5th at least... if not after.. cause if you started on the 13th you'd need to the 5th to VP cap.

    No, last week MMO-C SPECULATED that it would be 26th release. Blizz never give dates. For this exact reason. (Except release dates for expansions of course).

    No, Blizzard speculated, MMO reported on it:

    As the 5.2 raid Throne of Thunder is one continuous, sprawling dungeon, each difficulty will open in its entirety once unlocked. Normal difficulty will be available the first week, then Heroic the week after. LFR will, as usual, be broken up into sub-sections and those will be releasing over time, likely with the first section opening with Heroic in the second week, and a new section each week afterward. Of course we don’t tend to give out patch release dates ahead of time, because things can slip, but right now we’re targeting the last week of February.

    So basically, you're incorrect I'm afraid.
