    Does anyone really want another expansion? Most people I know seem to have gotten completely bored out of their minds with the franchise during the current expansion... It starts to feel more and more like they should take the old horse behind back and put it down before it starts suffering too hard from age... I personally couldn't care less anymore if another expansion gets launched. I was thrilled for Mists of Pandaria, but that's probably going to be the last expansion I buy for this dated game...

    there is a 5.5 patch slated after 5.4, so a few months after that next expansion or at least the pre-release 6.0 patch for another month. They called whats happening in the Barrens a "world event" a few times.

    This could be the case as well as a 5.5 patch. Don't know how much testing would have to be done for the Beta. Some take 2 months, others take around 5 or 6. It's also a fact that Blizzard has bigger teams working a head..so it could possibly be...

    I'll buy the expansion but unfortunately my playstyle has devolved over the years. My account is currently inactive and will remain that way until the new expansion comes out. I have no interest in gearing up but rather complete each raid a few times and experience the lore and then quit. I don't resub for smaller patches either. I played at the beginning of MoP and resubbed for Throne of Thunder. No interest in the upcoming raids like Siege of Ogrimmar etc so next time back will be X5.

    While Annual pass was a great marketing idea, I think a lot of people felt taken advantage of from the first one. I personally did. When I signed up for an annual pass I had Dragon Soul for one whole year without anything new to do. I got D3 which didn't live up to the hype and I played for maybe 2hrs total, and a mount which I never use. Never again.

    I'm going to laugh loudly when the new expansion isn't Burning Legion themed.

    You mean IF. If it isn't Burning Legion themed.

    what is surprising how they managed to keep no leaks happening so far, usually we always get some hints before expansions, but now - nothing!

    By the way, any info on what the "Big Feature" that GC said was going to be the "Biggest feature in MoP"?

    Talking about this: https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler/sta...86698293338112

    Well they will most likely do a Epilogue after the fall of Garrosh, maybe a quest line for the new warchief, maybe some soul searching for a new Warchief, but something like that, while the next expansion gets beta tested.
    I also see one of the big announcements being the enw player models tbh. Blizzcon seems a good time to unleash that reveal

  11. #71
    I think they won't announce X5 at Blizzcon but a few weeks before or after 5.4 release (August). Beta should start 1 Month after that. At Blizzcon they will show some progress of the Expansion. All that leads to a release in Feb-March 2014

    So my guess on next expansion:

    *Legion invades Azeroth for a pre-event.

    *Level cap is 95.

    *2 new races (my personal guess/hope is broken (ally) and ogre (horde))

    *New continent is not located on Azeroth. Either another planet, or a moon of Azeroth. It wont' be Argus.

    *Some new features to help convince people to level alts again (a feature like ToR's legacy system would be cool)





    For those of you wondering what happened to Ethereal and Demon Hunter, I pushed Argus back to being 95-100 in Expansion VI with that race/class.
    Unsubscribed 3/10/2014 - 8/14/2014.
    "Times change."

    Beware the claims of yearly expansions. It's not more hype more often, it's paying more for less. Fewer tiers, no more new levels, no more new races/classes, but an ever-increasing price tag....

    Completely agree with this, expect a very dark expansion. Think dwarves hammering forges, Evil Elves, and cows with opposable thumbs and udders that can play music.

    But seriously, this guy is right, it will be dark folks and this is definitely what is needed for the next step.

    Anyone like the name Destruction of Azeroth to? Oh and I really want the next expansion to feature the new models that Blizzard promised and maybe new races to as well, but it would be good to to have a expansion to make everything go well and probably just keep everything up to date with the new exp.
    PM me for my Friend Code, Battletag, ETC...

    If they still claim they have 9 million WoW players in the world then I'm either going to call bullshit on that or facepalm at the idea that people are still feeling entertained by this dated game... But anyway, the people I know tends to be a pretty good reference group to know what people's feelings are about the game.

    I'm pretty sure everyone is going to agree that the playerbase has shrunk a lot lately.

    So maybe we'll see a small 5.5 patch with daily quests, new scenarios etc, maybe the big yet unannounced feature, and then later a 5.6 filler raid like Sunwell or Halion.

    And then it could look like this




    That would stick to the current model - about 6 months for a new raid, little stuff in between - and yet there would only be about 3-4 months between the last content patch and the release of the next expansion.

    In any case, they either have to bring the expansion out quicker than we expect, or provide a good amount of extra content between 5.4 and the next expansion, or it will be ICC/DS all over again.
    Agree with this post, except for the part of the filler raid. I doubt Blizzard making other raid than the Siege of Ogrimmar, probably we will see a event an 1 or 2 scenaries (like the fall of theramore)

    You so realize that Blizzard cannot lie about their sub numbers or they could face braking the laws.
    Also, you just need to accept the fact that many people still enjoy the game and still play the game. Just because you don't and your group of friends don't doesn't mean the game isn't for others. Opinions

    Presumably they'll announce at Blizzcon because otherwise the expansion will be out before the next one.

    You can't do two expansions with a Burning Legion theme. Especially not back to back. It'll be hard enough to justify one given how much it'll look like TBC.
