    On a similar note, why does every conversation between Americans and Europeans have to devolve into nitpicking semantic bullshit?

    The actual use makes a lot of sense to me. For example, when my kid was born:
    "He was born in May."
    "What day?"
    "May 25th."
    "How long ago?"
    "May 25, 2009."
    "Do you remember exactly when?"
    "He was born exactly May 25, 2009 at 7:02 AM. We were in labor overnight."

    I think it makes more sense. You start your description vague then get more specific. It's like someone asking you what time the movie is showing. "It's on Friday at 7:30 PM, would you like to come join us?" Probably because I've grown accustomed to it though.

    three more weeks of boredom. Yay for F2P MMOs though. playing those other MMOs helps me recover from WoW burnout.

    3 weeks to grind 1000 VP.

    no cos usa have always got patches a day earlier than europe due to time difference, it has nothing to do with the world trade centre in anyway.

    Loving the irony that the individual responsible for posting this nonsense is calling himself "glorious leader".

    From last weeks news post that first started speculating that the release was Aug 27.

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/...nding-Soon-DLC

    Specifically

    Patch 5.4 - Potential Release Date
    With Season 13 ending soon, we finally have a potential release date for Patch 5.4. There are still many things that could delay the patch, so keep in mind that this date is not final!

    Blizzard released Cataclysm on December 7th, the day of the Pearl Harbor attack.

    Blizzard is releasing 5.4 on September 10th, a day before the 9/11 attack.

    Blizzard is the Illuminati.

    Wowhead has posted a useful guide that can help you make sure to get the most from Battlefield: Barrens before it’s gone.
    Once again, MMO-Champion has edited a Blue post to remove links to their competitors. If you edit Blue posts, I cannot trust that you are presenting them accurately or honestly. You preserve all other hyperlinks, just not those to Wowhead. I understand they are your competition, but tough shit. That doesn't mean you get to change what Blizzard says.

    I guess half of these comments wouldn't even have happened if the image just said "09/10/2013" instead of "09.10.2013".
    On the other hand, the news title and the headline in the newspost clearly state the date unmistakably, so I guess people just argue for the sake of arguing.

    Eh, they removed the link but the spirit of the line is intact. I don't see a problem here. Anyone that wants to can easily go to wowhead and search for the guide. It's not like anyone here won't know (or at the very least couldn't just google) wowhead. I could see a slippery slope argument here so maybe it bears watching but I'd say it's not yet something to worry about.

    "Do you remember exactly when?"
    "Sure, 7:02 AM on the 25th of May, 2009. We were in labor overnight."

    There are many ways to phrase time and dates when it comes to speech, and most are perfectly fine. If you believe "You start your description vague then get more specific" is true, then you would say then Date would be formatted YYYY/MM/DD not MM/DD/YYYY. The later is just absolutely bizarre and your argument does no match up.

    YYYY/MM/DD is the best format (for purpose of date sorting), followed by DD/MM/YYYY (in terms of ordering LSB>>MSB). MM/DD/YYYY is just as screwy as say YYYY/DD/MM would be.

    Hey, A point on the grinding for Valor.... I read somewhere that there are NO Valor quarter masters in 5.4... so am I right in saying not to both with Valor? Other than having some on hand for upgrading gear?

    It's been 12 years, how long until we stop making a bit deal out of the 9th of September?

    P.S. I can't believe that was 12 years ago.

    So there is no coin change? We still going to use Mogu coins for SoO?

  19. #99
    I think it's safe to say that this isn't the first time the patch is going to be delayed xDDDD

  20. #100
    So we are going to use Mogu coins still for extra rolls? Interesting...time to cap to 10!
