    No content for a Year?

    Considering we do not have a Beta and looking at past history I think in my opinion Wod won't be out for around a year. Blizzard says they are going to try to get it out sooner. We will see. Either way they said no new content Till WOD comes out

    What makes you doubt they can't get it out somewhere between April-June?

    That's a pretty short beta run, no?

    if you'd researched a little bit, you'd see there are quotes stating that they definitely want it out and are trying hard as they can to have WoD released before late spring or early summer-- in fact, closer to early spring; probably late March or early April. So ... it most certainly won't be a whole year without new content. And am sure a few folks will get into Beta soon as I'm predicting early Dec closed Beta starts .. mid Dec latest.

    Depends when Beta opens, and depends how far along they are.

    Remember they got the whoooole Titan team back on WoW during MoP and would've put alot of those on WoD.

    WoD beta to start in Jan/Feb run for 6 months then release. Still leaves us with no new content for 8 - 9 months

    Subs will continue to bleed out but it'll spike back up again when the expansion comes out as usual.

    The lack of content won't affect me as I don't play WoW during the school year. (except on Christmas break)

    Sounds to me like they're forgoing another patch to get the expansion out FASTER.

    Why does everyone always act shocked and complain about a close to year-long lull after the final raid comes out when this has happened in every single expansion so far?

    I don't think it will be a year. ICC to Cataclysm was a year. DS to MoP was less. As to whether or not we're in alpha or beta, no new classes and no new races will shorten things up a bit. There was already a dungeon available at Blizzcon and some of the leveling content. Apparently they are well along, have a larger team and intent on not wasting any time.

    Honestly, can we relax for just a few, just a few. Just play the game, or if you're bored, take a break. Go with the flow. Stop worrying so much, im sure that you know that thier team is a lot bigger now too.

    The sooner that I can get off the timeless isle, the better. Let's not drag this out any longer than we have to.

    You'll see WoD between late March and early May. No need to get worried about doing SoO for more than 7 months.

  16. #16
    We already have one of these threads, and also anyone that thinks we are going to sit on SoO for a year must be crazy.

  17. #17
    Way too early for this kind of speculation. Not shocked, tho ... sensationalism and hyperbole fuel the internet.

    If we aren't in beta by January / February, sure. But as it stands it is within the realm of possibility to get WoD out by April, with May or June looking to be viable release date candidates.

    There have been numerous mentions of 6.0 being released as soon as possible, and that we should expect it sooner than anticipated. As they are moving every developer to WoD, it will greatly reduce the development and testing time, thus we won't be stuck in SoO for 8-9 months, as some suggest. Nothing is set in stone, but i personally believe Beta might begin very early January, and we might just see a release in March/April.
