    They will most definitely pull it out in Spring, early Summer the latest.

    ActiBlizz are not dumb, they know that any more than that and a lot of precious subs will be wasted. They can prance around all they want with their "when it's done", but I am sure they have some very strict deadlines going on there internally.

    WoD please. I don't mind no new content, but then speed the game up.

I wish we could just up and erase all theorycrafting and betas and things like that for good.
    Might be true at some point, but the hardcore community used guides and theorycraft in vanilla already. With the release failures with BWL (BugWingLair) and AQ in some way (C'Tun unkillable until fix) they agreed Testing is needed and every "surprise" boss suffered from not been tested enough (Sinestra &Dark Simulacrum) and the "Really Hard" Ra-Den most recently.

    The thing that kept people busy was the "no catch-up" system policy that forced everyone through progress of all Raids from begining and lenghtening content in that way. If MoP and Cata didnt had LFR or Valor Vendors the new leveled people would need to start from beginning and maybe didnt finish SoO or even ToT in time of WoD release (expected). If you grind some coins and run ToT LFR and than SoO LFR/Flex you have SoO ready Char in maybe 2 weeks?

    Also, figuring out tactic and build functional strategy can be done by serious theorycrafters (with videos and logs) in matter of hours....so if you erase it, it will be complete in week at most.

    One of the best comments that shows the current mentality. You guys deserve 24 months of non-stop killing SoO trash & bosses again and again. Ad nauseam.

    Sigh.

    Lol, where in the world do you people come up with this stuff?

    Reposting for relevancy:

    Courtesy of: http://www.wowwiki.com/Timeline_%28World_of_Warcraft%29

    Nov 23, 2004 - WoW Launch.
    Jan 16, 2007 - BC Launch.
    Nov 13, 2008 - Wrath Launch.
    Dec 7, 2010 - Cata Launch.
    Sept 25, 2012 - MoP Launch.

    With the exception of BC, likely because Blizzard was still a "when it's ready" company then, every single release has been in Fall or right on Fall's doorstep for the holiday season. People were saying "Spring release, definitely!" for both Cata and MoP, and here they are, saying it again for WoD. I'll see you guys in WoD in Sept.
    If you haven't noticed... Blizzard LOVES fall/winter/holiday releases with WoW. Not a chance in the world WoD is going to be out in Spring/Summer, especially when beta hasn't even started, especially when they know the players will handle 12 months of one tier and still buy the next expansion.

    Yes. Pandaria sucks, I want the new expansion sooner rather than later.

    Between DS and Theramore was 294 days, +7 another days for MoP release

    I have a timeline for all the main patches and releases because sometimes I get bored
    Assuming this is accurate:

    -I wish Naxx to TBC was > 210 days as many people where still learning, hell another year would have been just fine with me. I came on board late and this game was as shiny as it gets

    -Similar situation with TBC to Wrath, bought xpac late and by the time I started raiding it was September. Raiding was also new to me and many other players. Hindsight a "filler" raid to ease Sunwell's progression would have been a welcome additional (Patch 2.5 FTW!)

    -ICC was out way too long, but Ruby Sanctum helped some ppl's cravings and aided getting more Herioc bosses, or normal down.

    -Can't speak personally for DS, or much of Cata since I quit then, but from reading it seems the raid itself was the real issue

    -MOP to WOD should bring a filler, 6 months or so after SoO to help anyone still after some kills a few pieces of extra gear could help give imo. Also a new pvp season is the nail in April / May release date coffin. It will not be out till at least summer, so another raid would help deter many subs on the edge from unsubbing come March.

    I'd be fine with no more content if it meant WoD was pretty close to being released. I feel like we'll be sitting in SoO for another 6-7 months though, which I don't think is good because a lot of people are bored of it already.

    So nothing to add ? Just buthurt fanboy trolling? No such thing as a Doomsayer. Maybe the mods will do their job and give you a infraction for trolling since that is pretty much all you have done. I said Wod would not be out till about Sept 2014 looks like I Was right unless prideful is going to be the shortest pvp season ever

    Calling other users trolls and "butthurt fanboys" is not constructive discussion.

    ^ hey mod,

    it's okay for your butbuddy to call people doomsayers tho right?

    They are already building and testing raid bosses. I'm not gonna say who told me that, but that should be an indication of the progress.

    I would expect a release to coincide with summer break.

    Holika's statement means next to nothing about the length of the season or the expansion release timeline. Read the rest of his tweets on the topic, especially "Trying to break the trend of long seasons to end the expac. People are reading waaaaay too much into it," and "I definitely did NOT say the new PvP season would last around 20-25 weeks. I'd say that's the max length I'd want it."

    If the current season lasts around 20 weeks, and the following season lasts less than 20 weeks, a June release is still perfectly possible. Nothing is certain or confirmed based on this statement.

    It probably will be the shortest pvp season ever.

    It's there as a short term fix to keep PvP players subbed.

    June-July always has been and still is the most likely release date

    Well see but i dobut it will be short. Also let me put this out here "Calling other users trolls and "butthurt fanboys" is not constructive discussion. You say but him calling me a hater and a Doomsayer is ok? Well he was sure in the hell trolling and derailing the thread. Stop being biased when you do your job as a mod. Idc if I get infracted again or not for saying this but really sword gots to cut both ways. I just did the same shit back too him.

    But you see you doubt it simply because like in most of the threads you create you like to stir controversy and attempt to get as many people as possible to insult Blizzard lest they be called fanboys.

    The dev himself has said that it's been read way too far into and has no bearing on the upcoming expac. It could easily last 3-4 months as a short term fix to keep PvPers playing and after new gear.

    oh yea right after blizzcon!

    I was told by many in this thread it would be coming in Spring. Adding a pvp season pretty much kills a spring release of WOD. People don't like the threads I make don't post in them that simple. Some one wants to come in and troll it call me a "doomsayer" I am going troll his ass back but wait I just broke the rules not him right? because I said something the mod did not like? Also I do not need to make a thread to call people fanboys really read the shit post "Im sorry but your quote makes me think your nothing but a doomsayer so i can't take anything you say as fact at all sir.also your name on top of that is not helping at all or opinion at all.ill be going now peace sir."

    Nothing he posted had to do with the thread it was trolling flat out and insults but hey thats right I am in the wrong *gasp* because I dare not praise The all mighty Blizzard! If I deserved a infraction so does mikencarly for his trolling but hey half ass moding will be half ass right?

    Most people, as shown by the release date estimate thread believe it'll be May-August period, IMO that's still dead on the money, sure you can keep bumping this thread to have a laugh at the minority but I don't really see the point
