    Lightbulb 6.0 eta

    Well there's been a few threads about WoD release estimates, but I haven't seen any estimates for 6.0.

    I'm taking a break at the moment because I want to fully enjoy the game when I come back.

    So just wondering when we could expect 6.0 to ship.
    I'm guessing April, based on my gut.

    Thoughts?

    3 months after Beta starts. That's my ETA.

    Isn't some big "ermagherd WoW killer" launching in April? I can't remember which one. Blizzard usually has some sort of release targeted for around when competition of any kind is coming out. April is a little too early for Warlords proper (for various reasons, I'm expecting June as the most likely), so we'll probably get the pre-event around then.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me... and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Personally, I'm gonna say May for 6.0 then the expansion will go live in June.

    Rarely updated...

    6.0 March, Expansion April

    EDIT: The reason they don't announce it yet is they are waiting Wildstar to announce release date too (after ESO).
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Well i am sure there has been around 40 "WoW killers" Released since 2004, and none so far have even scratched it.
    As for Release date i say May 10 :P I cannot see September happening since they said it was going to be a shorter time window between the two expansions, September would make it even longer than Cata.

    Its the truth according to the fact that blizzard only releases expansions from september to january! And never in the same month!

    April 6th I believe. And that's WAY too early to even push 6.0 live. We're looking at February at this point for Beta, and only 2 months of testing for all the huge changes that will impact 1-90?

    Nah, Elder Scrolls Online will launch without a response from WoW. It doesn't need one, the game was declared dead on arrival already months ago.



    If you guys really want me to be specific. 6.0 in Late May, WoD in Mid June.

    6 months of Beta, that is going to happen, puts us into June and that's if the beta started today. =\

    I'm guessing September release with some kind of pre-patching that will put the Item Squish and a few other things in place in the hopes it will put some of the enjoyment and/or novelty back into SoO while people learn and adjust to the new numbers.

    BC had a 3 months beta. Do we really need to go through all these things again?

    Nothing official. But let's look at this.

    The next 3 weeks will be relatively dead as people are ignoring the game for finals/Christmas/New Years/etc.

    Come January things will pick up again, we'll likely see some bigger posts. But they aren't going to drop the big bomb right away.

    Late January they announce Beta, but won't draw names right away. They'll give people time to opt in, probably 1-2 weeks.

    That puts us in early-mid February for Beta at this point.

    I don't think it's going to launch concurrently with ESO, but I think they can and will try to hit a target that's a few weeks after it launches- probably the tail end of April (hence "around then"). Early May is certainly a possibility.

    Agree with the rest, but i'm pretty sure you can opt in for beta testing right now on battle.net. They'll wait until after new years for the beta as all their devs will be off on hols. So yeh, mid / late Jan for the beta, late-April for pre patch IMHO.
