    I felt like ICC was extremely accessible when it came to pugging it compared to DS, so it wasn't so bad that it lasted as long as it did since you could almost always get into a decent pug for both 10 and 25 man each week, also there was a filler raid. DS didn't really deliver, especially as a last tier raid, so it felt like it lasted a lot longer then it did. But they have been releasing content a lot faster this x-pac, and it has been good content, but even if it did last a year(which I highly doubt they would let that happen), there have been so many things added to the game with mists that I doubt people would ever get bored of it just because the patch runs a little long, especially if SoO turns out as good as it looks.

    Then they would have failed for three expansions in a row!

    Though, I doubt that'll happen this time, but who knows!

    Well there is a giant daily hub on isle of thunder, and reason we didn't get more because to many people QQ'ed about them and blizzard stopped making them.

    even if SoO lasts a whole year, that's blizzards call. Not the community. They'll do what they like as they always have.

    If Siege lasts a year, it lasts a year. Not much we can do about it.

    About the best we can hope for is that Blizzard is much farther along on the next expansion pack than we think, and the beta will basically involve polishing anything they missed and helping tune the bosses a bit more.

    I don't think the amount of time SoO is out will impact the amount of subscribers that much. The number will go down heavily after 4-5 months of SoO no matter what and even if they let it last a whole year most of the subscribers lost will come back when the new expansion releases.

    It will last for as long as it lasts. What's the big deal about it? Relax when you've done your heroic Garrosh kill or finish up some achievements or cancel your sub until the next expansion and find another hobby in the meantime.

    It's not like your salvation depends on playing WoW 24/7, is it?

    If it did, that would suck. I don't think it will, though.

    I think they will announce the new expansion (which they are already working on, of course) at this years blizzcon and launch the beta a few weeks after that. So the next expansion will probably be released around march-april 2014.

    Based off how fast they're releasing content, I don't think so. Could it be the final raid of the expansion? Probably. But we can at least bank on Blizzard releasing other stuff afterward and leading up to the next expansion.

    There are a few points to be made.

    The reigns were pulled back on Titan, it's teams were split up. If I remember correctly the largest bulk of developers from Titan went to WoW.

    This means more development power on top of the already impressive development power they have had so far. SoO lasting for a year would be because the next expansion is not ready, with more talented and capable hands carrying it along it'd be ready, faster.

    That said, as a personal opinion and guess (I like to guess and see how right or wrong I am, I was horrifically off with Cataclysm) I honestly think late august early september we should see 5.4 drop. The expansion would be announced at Blizzcon, along with a potential 5.5 announcement being a filler patch, single boss, minor content, final ties into the next expansion (think Ruby Sanctum). IF there is a 5.5 we could expect to see it drop in January-feburary, the Beta would start early- late december, and run until march-april giving it ~4 or 5 months run time, launching April giving the expansion turn around about a year and a half, along he lines of what they want!


    While SoO CAN last a long time because it will be offering a TON of content for raiding, I highly doubt it WILL last a long time. Even if it goes by my timeline, it will still be ~7 or 8 months on live.

    February - 6.0 expac
    You're 1-2 months too early on those (except Blizzcon since its announced, duh). SoO is coming out September 10th, exactly 2 weeks after the Arena Pass (and most likely S13) ends.

    6.0 will be released early April 2014 and next xpack will be officially out early May.

    At least thats my guesses, going purely by logic.

    Blizzard did not make new dungeons for later tiers of MOP, solely to focus on creating them for the next expansion.

    So it's possible they are grinding away at content creation and could launch within 6 months of the Blizzcon announcement. (My theory)

    Where to people keep getting this stuff? They've stated, several times, that the reason there haven't been new dungeons in MoP is because they wanted the artists to focus on other things that get used more often, most specifically the raids.

    I will be pretty upset if SoO lasts a year.

    At least there are 14 bosses so I could maybe take 8 months.

    They should of added an extra month before ToT and before SoO if its going to last more than 8 months.

    Then probably quite a few people will cancel their subscription until the next X-pack launches. I really doubt it will last a whole year though.

    Only a 3 month beta after the last two were 6 months somehow doubt it.

    I reckon it will, well maybe not a year but a september/autum/ winter release for next expac (As always). Also expect another annual pass to trap players who are easily allured to a free mount and next expansion hype . They'll announce this pass perfectly timed with the expansion announcement. If it was less than a year (roughly away) I believe we would of heard of the expansion by now for sure.

    Blizzard want content to come out faster so I highly doubt it. I'm really surprised at how quick we're getting an new expansion reveal so soon. So I guess sometime next year. Most likely end of next year is when it'll be released. MOP feels like it's gone by very quickly to me. LOL
