    "The First Amendment separates church from state, but not religion from public life" and that "American Atheists advocates an “absolute separation of church and state,” which would appear to call for a society in which public spaces are entirely religion-free zones. But “separation” taken this far is no friend of religious liberty."

    As an engineer, I agree. The more silly toys that can be abused until nerfed to death,
    the better!

    The mushrooms being outside of Zangarmarsh makes sense, because if you remember the RTS games there were mushrooms all over Draenor, even Hellfire, not just in the Marsh.

Maybe the reason they don't want that is because Blizzcon and Blizzcon preparations (both on the development team side and with top guilds) will be going on during that last minute crunch period?

    I am also not buying that the idea of releasing the second raid after Blizzcon and the first raid before is that realistic. Let's say they release September 30. They have said they are considering a 2 week gap between release and the first raids this time. If that happens.

    September 30 - Release
    October 14 - Normal/Heroic Highmaul Opens
    October 21 - Mythic Highmaul Opens
    Blizzcon - 2 weeks later

    2 weeks is not a big enough gap between progression starting and Blizzcon for a 7 boss raid. If you look at T14 as an example; MSV was a shorter raid (6 bosses) and it took 42 days for 25 US 25 man guilds to clear it on heroic. I can't see any rational argument for there being less than a month between Highmaul opening on Mythic and Blizzcon. It will screw over too many people. They can't release it before Blizzcon without major problems.

    This is 100% their fault as well; they decided when to schedule Blizzcon and they decided to protract the development of WoD. The result of their actions means they are pretty much locked to a November release. Although, it's entirely possible/likely that they scheduled Blizzcon at that time knowing they wouldn't be ready until November.
    I can agree with this, But Tib would you agree on a September 9th release at all ??

    So they are giveing the zone more forest, etc. Could see that they want to introduce quests where we try to stop further destruction from the Iron Horde.

Blizzard are the ones that set the date of Blizzcon, knowing that it would create either progression conflict or force a delayed release date. They are the ones that created this situation, and now they have to deal with the consequences of either releasing in November or giving a giant middle finger to their most dedicated community. Considering that the overall hardcore raiding community is in the hundreds of thousands, it's a lot bigger group than people want to acknowledge, and the people from that group are magnitudes more likely to care about Blizzcon than the average player.
    Amen Tib !!

    I did comparison of whole map (previous build vs new one) and thats pretty much only thing that changed.
    Only other thing is this dome thingy, just bit south from what you posted.


    There are some small changes in SMV too (shape of few roads, some small shrooms and rocks in water of coast[towards tanaan], few palces got more trees and so on)

    Probably stress testing the new file systems _and_ the new patching system.

    Don't forget just because a build goes up on the CDN does not mean it's there for public consummation.

That is my honest thoughts.
    ....

    Like they've been doing for I dunno ... forever. You talk like Blizzard don't have their own QA team.

    They do and they've always had their QA team test these things. Beta testing is done in addition to the normal testing they do.

    They have never done it on the massive scale I am suggesting. Ever. Even during Vanilla and BC. What I am suggesting is that the extra employees who were supposed to help the release schedule were never actually working on the game, they were always working on fixing bugs and testing. Thats it. It would explain everything going on. The lack of public Alpha and Beta, the lack of any type of information, the comments about testing things when people are still leveling. It really honestly seems like they want the Alpha to last till late May and then open up Beta for a few weeks, maybe even 2 months, then go live with Warlords, with a 6.0 release in late June, early July. It seems like beta this time may actually be like a modern beta, just a shitty little demo for people to test so they don't get bored and they get hyped up. Honestly if they want to meet the "Blizzcon Deadlines" that, for once, Tiberria seems to actually be right about, they would need to have the game release in August or September. If the game released in August they would have technically kept there promise about a faster release, even though the expansion still lasted longer.

    I am going to make a bold statement, feel free to sig it or spam me when I am wrong.

    6.0 is releasing by July 15th/August 12th. Warlords goes live September 16th-23rd.

    It is not releasing in May, June, or July. It could release in August, September, or October. It will not release in November due to Blizzcon and Thanksgiving. It will not release in December/January due to Holidays.

    Edit: I know people are going to say they released shit during the Holidays in the past, but its much more different now than then. Things take much more time to get working, if they break bad things happen, and the game is not thriving like it used to.

    You shouldn't need to hope about these things, just use your brain.
