    The lack of news for WoD are so...

    ...Strange.

    At least to me, it's a little bit suspicious there is no news, no new gameplay videos, no new screenshots, not at all.

    This, and the 7 months pre-order tell two possible things :

    1- the expasion is around the corner (may, june release) or

    2- the expasion really isnt ready till fall and this is gonna cost blizz a million subs at least.

    what do you think?

    Well you know, screen shots and game play videos would cost us a raid teir.

    Warning, stop with those useless comments and post constructively.

    They've been doing artcraft, developer interviews, releasing new character models, as well as the twitter and pvp things.

    This "lack" is a case of "i want it all now now now" mentality.

    Highly due to PAX coming up, there will be a lot of new stuff being premiered there.

    Not entierly, compared to the news released with the other expansions, WoD has been a rather tight liped expansion. The website alone when compared to the websites of previous expansions is a bit lacking in terms of offering inside looks at dungeons, raids, new factions, new creatures, class changes, Etc. I do not see this as a "I want it now now now" mentality as much as blizz just drawing back on the information put out there so people have some curiosity going into the expansion.

    Would you rather have a developer interview or a raid tier?
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.

    There was been quite a bit of information released about WoD to this point... it may just not be the information you wish to be seeing. As for the things you believe based on the "lack of information" and the pre-order window... Well, your first inclination doesn't hold water if you look at Blizzard's past release history. And the second one... Again, look at Blizzard's release history, a fall release has never cost subs. Plus, those that leave (think to the end of cata when DS drug on forever) they came back.

    So, I don't really see the "lack of information" as strange, and I don't believe that it, coupled with the pre-order window is going to lead to either of your end results. As for what and when... I see a fall release, based on the lack of a beta outside of friends and family.

    I'd rather people not use that phase because some words I can't say.

    They don't want to show how bad this expansion is. What if they showed the new outland and it's really all not that much different except some colors or whatever nonsense blizzard usually does? No one wants to pay $49.99 for a patch

    If blizzard can't get excited for 2 full years of nothing but orcs and reused characters then how can we >.<

    It's pretty sad at this point. I don't see any new news since November. There's been a couple screenshots here and there along with a couple updates to the new race models. But no release date, not significant images, beta ptr, nothing.

    There has been plenty of news since November. You're just not paying attention or your definition of news is different.

    I don't know where this entitlement came from where people think Blizzard should just release huge news blogs just because it's a random Thursday or whatever. Major chunks of news comes from big press events, with little breadcrumbs in between. That's how the industry works.

    Not to mention that it's coming out at a much later date and they all aren't going to be finished >.<

    There's plenty of news if you look outside of just MMO for a source.
    You now stand before the Countess.

    A lot of reasons mingling... ESO is a factor. The buzz will be ESO, it's not like they have anything to release to counteract it like they usually do. Say what you will about ESO, but their release time is probably a good time... No highly anticipated PC or MMO releases to steal its thunder post-release for a while.

    Once the brouhaha about ESO dies down, expect more news when it can actually get an eye catch from people outside the WoW bubble.
