    Didn't know about HS though.
    I'd argue that the theory makes no sense at all. With public beta testing, Blizzard is essentially getting thousands of hours of QA testing done for free. On top of that, they are able to get feedback and see the player reaction to new changes and lore and questlines and systems without risking putting them in the live game. What would Blizzard have to gain by keeping most testing in house? I don't really see anything they would gain other than increased costs and less critical feedback to make good decisions off of.

    On top of that, we have had Cory Stockton and Holinka speak about how Blizzard prefers a long and iterative beta process. That doesn't sound like what you would hear from a company about to move most of the testing in house and drastically cut the beta duration that we have seen on the last 2 expansions. I really think this theory is just something people are cooking up because they don't want to accept that a June release is incredibly unlikely at this point.

    Well, you can't say he is an unreliable source. Ever since I started visiting MMO-Champion, he has only been wrong once, and that was The Dark Below fake trademark. He was right about WoD (although it was leaked a few days before his confirmation), he was right about MoP (many didn't believe it/expected a mobile game) and he was right about Cataclysm (changing/breaking the whole world? yeah right).

    At this point, I take his word. Besides, when someone gives a 'month1-month2' kind of date, I always read it as 'month1 15-month2 15', otherwise it would be stated as month1 or month2. I didn't expect beta to begin early february.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    And even with the TDB, all MMO-C reported is that it was filed as a trademark application, iirc. I don't recall anything he was "wrong" about.

    I'm getting hyped again honestly. Maybe its just all of this idle sitting around, but there's a good chance beta is within 1-2 weeks, and I'm almost certain we will be getting some sort of news (and maybe even some beta assets on battle.net) this week. That's something to be hyped for, right?

    Oh no no, I indeed trust Boub. What I meant is that so far apart from his statement, there's been no real indication of inminent Beta, if the past is any precedent. That's why I said that I hope that they changed their method for publishing beta over on battle.net, because if that's not the case, things are getting scary, even more so that they already are :P

    AWWW YOU'RE SUCH A FANBOY.

    Although yeah it's kind of true, there's usually a difference between "huh yeah a trademark has been filled and it might be something" and "hey the name of the new expac is that.". I don't feel like looking for the old news but I'm pretty sure the wordings were quite different.

    As for the expac beta, we'll see, March can probably still happen without too much problem since we're basically in the phase of "crapton of press tour before people can datamine stuff" and my tiny ears still hint at "soon". Still can't predict random development delays though.

    For the time being, you should probably investigate http://i.imgur.com/F1Wbb.jpg (yes I can derail threads it's my site, you can't)

    Well this guy does amazing predictions and posts the important ones on front page news, however it doesn't mean from time to time he can't just shoot a normal prediction as a normal conversation based on common sense without people quoting that as "Boub said it there is no way it can be wrong"; and hanging on it forever!

    Out of curiosity (I have no idea if you'll respond to this), but what makes your ears point toward it coming soon?

    I'm as optimistic as anyone else but are there any small bits of information you've come across (aside from what we, ourselves, have come across)?

    Well, I'd say, mostly because its kind of around that time, so it's kinda of obvious or a given that it will be ''soon''. How soon, its what is worrying to be honest :P.
