    Unless the next WoW expansion is released next summer....

    We're looking at the 1st raid tier with the expectation to last us a full year! Even DS lasted 10 months. And the original announcement was made before the expansions final patch was released. Gamescom did not announce anything

    New expansion looks like it's gonna be announced at Blizzcon which is 3 months away too...so...who's up for 12 or more months of killing Garrosh!

    You can always just stop doing SoO. Just sayin'.

    Anyways, I'm pretty sure the next expansion will be coming out next fall. Which would be the fastest they ever came around with a new xpac. Pretty acceptable if you ask me.

    Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if next expansion launches early next year.

    ICC in wrath lasted for 364 days or something. One day short of a year. And no, nobody counts Ruby Sanctum as anything other than a waste of time.

    Quote deployed.

    Didn't ICC last like. A billion years?
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    ICC lasted 1 day short of a year. DS was 10 months. These sorts of things are expected.

    in front of the summer holidays? don't think so. fall makes more sense. (5.4 is also coming in fall, it is the same pattern always)

    How about we stop the fake internet rage, wait for some kind of details and stop making knee jerk decisions to post every irrational fear and nerd rage on the forums?

    blizzard said they will bring expansions faster

    next expansion probably at the end of a year 2013 or early 2014

    So your saying we're likely to get even more SoO....I really hope when they announce it the "break character". They've said in the past, faster content is a good thing.

    Icc and DS were the only tiers I freezed my account, probably going to happen again with SoO. That's not just because the 10-12 months of the same raid, but mostly because it's the last tier of raiding... no real point in farming it. Probably going on the ptr as soon as possible, as I did with MoP.

    Blizzcon will be in 2 months not 3.

    Blizzard can easily pull this off, Beta right a week after blizzcon enough time to get another 5.5 out there, and then a little after 2014 the new expansion can begin.

    gotta admit atleast it was extra content before the pre-event. :/

    There will be a smaller pre-expansion event patch, but anything beyond that is not set in stone. Patch 5.4 is the conclusion of the Pandaria storyline.

    For all we know, the next expansion is currently in internal testing and beta invites could be announced shortly after Blizzcon. Blizzard is pushing content far more faster now and they know they have to attract old subs back with frequent content.

    What makes you believe we won't get 5.5?

    that's my opinion too

    i would say march/april/may next year

    blizzcon in november with the beta starting very shortly after, 6 months (or less) of beta, makes it due for launch around may, i'd say july/august at the very latest
