    5 months since the release of Siege of Ogrimmar..

    Yes, you read correctly. It's been over 5 months already and not even a Beta for WoD in sight. Doesn't this concern people? At this rate, SoO will probably have been out 8-9 months at least before we see WoD, with no new substantial new content in-between. What happened to getting content out faster.

    No, it doesn't concern me. WoD won't be released until at least September-October. Why do people fall for time and time again when Blizzard says that they are releasing faster expansions.

    They are releasing the content faster in the sense that they are trying to put more effort and content into it; releasing a better expansion. More content in almost same time = faster development

    There's no huge rush for me. Have to finish up Garrosh, farm everyone a mount, and get some playtime in RoS before I start to worry about WoD, which I haven't been expecting until August at the earliest.

    Still a shorter time than the last 2 expansions.
    Even if it is 1 week quicker than previously, it is still faster, and Blizzard won't have reneged on their promise.

    Since apparently CMs are getting shut down they can take as long as they freaking well want, fine by me.

    The real question is why does this concern you?

    This happens every time in the end of an expansion. You'd be the first in line to complain if the expansion shipped early and had major bugs / sucked overall.

    Patience is a virtue, and like someone else already said you can cancel your subscription and play something else until WoD if you'd like, many do.

    Getting content out faster doesn't mean getting content out when you want it. Content has still been released faster when you consider the pacing and amounts of past expansions.

    I don't expect to see WoD out before September. That may be bad. 6 more months of SOO is ..well..probably pushing most peoples patience. I expected / hoped that WoD would be out about the same time as TESO / Wildfire.

    In a way WoD out in September of 2014 at least lets me play TESO and Widstar to see if I like them.

    It should concern people. WoW is a relatively expensive game and when they don't put out content for 10-12 months it is kind of pathetic on blizzard's part. Best thing to do is unsub.

    I love people who confuse 'release content faster' with 'I do not get things when I want them'.
    I'm not a defender of Blizzard, I'm an opponent of stupid.

    Millions of people spend more on Candy Crush daily, WoW is far from expensive in the game industry, it's actually pretty damn cheap, the current sub price and the current price of cigarettes, it costs me the spare change I'd find on the floor more than a packet of cigarettes for a day, for an entire month of access.

    It's also not been 10-12 months, though it's happened before, sort of.

    Beta is close, and it doesn't have to be 6 months long, just wait and see before you judge, or unsub like you said, see you in WoD.

    Not really. Its box cost is cheaper then most new console games. And its subscription is only 4-5 cents a day. That is hardly expensive. Even more so when that 5 cents a day gives you 24/7 access (minus down time) and free updates with potentially a lot of new stuff. You essentially get an expansion worth of content for free over the life cycle of the expansion.

    Most people spend more going to the Movie theater, dinner, and drinks in one night. then they will on WoW.

    Blizzard must have been high when they said they wanted to give us faster expansions. They strive for perfection and while they do that we will never get faster expansions. It is either Quality or Quantity not both. They were stupid to make that statement to begin with.

    If enough people unsub, Blizzard will get the point and make Sunwell or Ruby Sanctum.
    Unfortunately, not enough people so far.
