    Why is Murcalot not being released before Blizzcon?

    I'm just curious as to why Murcalot, or the Crusader Murloc isn't be released until Blizzcon? All the other in game rewards are given to you the second you buy the ticket, so why not him?

    Needs to be patched in. And they don't want to give away anything early with the next patch.

    Couldn't they just patch him in with fixes next Tuesday? Wouldn't give anything away

    Just like Murkablo they didn't give us him until the day of Blizzcon, if my memory serves me right.

    You can't hotfix in items or artwork. They'd need to actually build a real patch.

    And one year didn't they even take a couple weeks after Blizzcon to deliver the items?

    Yeah, actually, I'm pretty sure you could buy them the last day of the event even.

    Because tradition. It used to be these things weren't added until a patch AFTER Blizzcon.
    Permanently unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.

    It would be kind of a dick move if Virtual tickets got their pets a month before real attendees.
