    Wasn't ICC out for a year?

    This isn't too bad yet.

    Well, after dragon soul they said that 9-12 months without anything would never happen again. I guess it was naive to believe when they said again that expansions would come out faster.

    ICC was epic. SoO is crap.

    But, don't worry, we've got another 6 months or so of SoO left, so get out there and grind some more!

    There's a difference between SoO looking like crap and being crap. As far as mechanics go, it's been one of the most well designed raids since Ulduar. ICC was decent, but overshadowed by Ulduar unfortunately.

    ICC IMO is worse then SoO.

    Personally, it doesn't bother me either way.
    3) They don't do a Beta and just drop the expansion on us so the "race" for Mythic World Firsts is truly "new" to everyone.

    This would not surprise me in the least.

    It's almost like that's what gamers are settling for these days isn't it? (and sadly supporting it at the same time)

    There is no way this would happen, unless they would be ready for WoD sucking monkey balls. Blizzard is terrible at testing stuff themselves. Just look at how Diablo 3 turned out after beta only had the first few levels and first part of the first act.

    just unsub - by the time WoD arrives you'll be all fresh and eager. Sit around doing nothing for 7months will make you hate the game

    just unsub.
    "you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.

    Amazing Answer, and yes, we will have to deal with SoO another 5 or 7 months , so bad.

    26 months from Vanilla to BC
    22 months from BC to Wrath
    25 months from Wrath to Cata
    21 months from Cata to MoP

    It does not seem farfetched to suggest that WoD will come out in September. Why? Because more or less there is a team A and a team B in expansions. Team A notoriously takes longer (26 and 25 months) whereas team B tends to be quicker (22 months and 21 months). Assuming a slightly faster trend that both teams have been doing, 24 months is quite reasonable and WoD would probably come out in September 2014. Following this logic, Expansion #6 might come out in May 2016 and Expansion #7 might come out in April 2018.

    That being said, while Wrath and MoP did in fact come out less than 2 years after the previous expansion, I generally get it in my head that an expansion is 2 years long. Until I have enough evidence to truly prove otherwise, I'm going to pretty much expect that.

    ICC was, but the REAL final raid of Wrath (Ruby Sanctum) was out 4 months before 4.0 launched.

    DS was out 8 months.

    SoO will be out 8-11 months with a launch window of June-September.

    Plain and simple, since the Activision merger, Blizz has a long documented history of having the space to put in a filler or 4th tier, but turn their nose up at the subject and then try to justify it with "everything costs a tier."

    And people eat the excuses up.

    It's disgusting to see so many people eat up crap content and crap excuses. This is why we can't have nice things.

    This is what happens when people don't call companies like Acti-Blizz on the shenanigans they pull.

    We sat around in DS and said "Well at least MoP will be good," so they did it again with SoO. Now we're sitting here saying "Well at least WoD will be good."

    It's the players that are causing this, they're sitting around in fear of the "At the cost of a raid tier" excuse when we already are being cheated out of a raid tier we have the time for. WoW is clearly entering the milking phase, just look at the sudden push of the Monthly Fee plus Cash Shop, and the increase of "We will give you the bare minimum and you won't complain."

    I don't think they even said that.
    They said they WANT to release faster.
    They said they know people don't like 12 months or more in a single tier, and that they want to avoid that happening again.

    Funny thing is, people will take a mini tier just to hold them off. Then later the same people bash it. Amazing logic.

    And yet, here we are. Again. And people are making excuses for them. Again. Even though they're the largest MMO in the western world and make $120 every single month, they're pleading poverty and lack of resources.

    And people BELIEVE them. It's pathetic.

    We're talking about wanting versus capability, and that's what gets me most angry about this.

    Blizz can say they want yearly expansions all they want, but simply put they cannot do it. Their team is not structured in a way to make this possible.

    But instead of owning up to it and saying "While we can't provide you with more frequent expansions, we can provide you with more frequent raids" they continue to get up and say "This will be the fastest-launched expansion yet" and then we're stuck with 6 months of hearing "Well an extra tier would delay this expansion further" and "We can't add that or it would cost a raid tier."

    Unfortunately, not enough people so far.
    Sunwell wasn't spontaneous, it was the intended final raid of TBC. BT was released too early and so there was an awkward time gap.
