    I really doubt we'll be in 5.4 for a year. I'm thinking spring/summer release.

    I would rather have a 5.5 and actually do the story right and show him going in the dark portal and escaping instead of waiting a year...Garrosh has escaped and we just have to follow them...Even if it mean 6.0 takes longer.

    I'm guessing beta after the holidays and a 5 month beta would put it end of May/beginning June. With the additional support from Titan we could see a 3-4 month beta putting it square around April.

    I have a feeling the extra support will help blizz fast track an earlier release.

    That is a really bad comparison.
    That is ONE item being made by 9 people.
    And a one and done things. And it can realistically only be worked on by ONE.

    To really compare it you could say, could 12 women produce 1 baby a month? Yes. If planned properly.
    There are MANY threads, and MANY projects to work on.
    If there are only 3 modelers they can only make 3 models at a time.
    If there are 12, they can make 12 at a time. And if model takes around 1 month to make, you went from 36 models a year, to 144 a year.
    Every aspect of the game can be broken up like that. And blizzard has years of experience of concurrent development and multitasking.
    They are not 3D realms... ;-)

    Seeing as how it's still in alpha..
    Even when it's in closed beta it's usually 2-3 months..
    Seeing is how they have to test raid bosses and that alone usually takes 2-3 months minimum..
    Bugs..
    Balance tweaking..
    They find a game breaking bug..
    Players find game breaking bug..

    It's Blizzard, it'll probably be 6-9 months from now.

    It makes a lot more sense to compare it to when previous content was released than the actual expansion announcement.

    Previous content is a good pointer for long they actually worked on the expansion, the announcement is just an arbitrary time when they chose to tell us.
    My addons:
    Announce Interrupts: Announces in chat when you interrupt a spell.
    Tol Barad Reminder: Reminds you to queue for Tol Barad by printing a message when the battle is approaching.
    EasyLogger: Turns on /combatlog inside raid instances, and off outside.

    It's a pretty big joke. They serve 7 million people (or whatever the number is). They treat the game as if it's for 500k people.
    You have tasks for people to do, so hire them. Everything they claim to want to do but will take more time off other projects... get people to do this stuff.


    Easy reason why this game is going downhill, they're on cruise control at this point until Titan.

    Yes, just put 500 more developers on this!
    Because that will surely not cause the quality to go downhill and it will surely pump out 10 times as much content!

    They're currently expanding the WoW team by 40% and plan to expand it by 40% again very soon.

    It's not like hiring a cleaner, they only want to bring in people who can provide content at the level they want so they can't just throw in a bunch of randomers into the WoW team

    My personal opinion, last MoP patch just could not keep me running for more than 2 weeks because of it's pure boringness.



    In some sort of perspective, yeah I am very excited for Warlord to come out

  12. #252
    If it turns out to be a year, then that will be one boring year, then again I wont care either way.

    No new content sucks but their reasons make sense.

    You call that fine? I think it was 10 months though.

    No 5.4 means it'll be out much sooner than a year from now.
    They're probably shooting for April.

    That's still 8 months of SoO

    MoP Beta started in January and the game was released in September. They said they are releasing faster so I would guess June-August. .

    not that bad if you compare it to the other expansions end content.

    No 5.5 = next expact gets rolled out sooner, at least according to the interview in Blizzcon
