I am guessing Christmas, b/c it makes sense.
I expect we'll be seeing the Expac April/ May/ June next year. They've said that they'd be putting out expansions faster than they've done previously, and after the amount of flack they got from Dragon Soul lasting as long as it did, I doubt they'd repeat it.

Blizzard has been targeting content patches to last about 6 months. This doesn't always happen, especially with expansions. The last patch pre-expansion is extended due to them biting off far more than they can chew in standard beta cycle.
Anyway, Spring next year. I was actually expecting an announcement during Gamescom but they went with D3 instead. Maybe Pax Prime? November is too late, it will be announced before Blizzcon.
I mean I'm just going to put my hat in there but unless the next expansion is released by this Winter the Kickstarter-backed Starcraft II mod is going to replace WoW as Blizzard's MMO front.

I just hope they can keep up the timeframe they had up untill now.
6 months after release of soo would be great.
I really don't see them going to the extremes that DS ICC did, they just cant afford it these days. We all expect that a preview will be at blizcon and then a release late winter. Feb-March.
Knowledge is power, and power corrupts. So study hard and be evil.
ICC was either completed or people gave up on trying to kill heroic Lick King with 30% nerf somewhere around June-July. Summer vacation season pretty much killed all raiding 7-8 months after ICC was released and people went for achievement farming mode while waiting for Cataclysm. On paper it lasted for a year, but in practice people stopped doing it long before that.

Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
Trolling should be.
