    Re: An Assault on Two Fronts - Patch 3.9

    The good old marketing of version numbers. 3.9 is advertised as simply being before 4.0, although such numbering is arbitrary. If they got up to 3.9 naturally and wanted another content patch it would be 3.10, then 3.11, and so on. I mean if they knew for sure that they had 1 major content patch before 4.0, they could call it 4.-1, but that would just seem weird.

    4.0 being the Cataclysm systems patch (that normally comes 1 month before the real patch)

    but Blizzard made the Pre-Cata event SO EPIC that they had to make a major content patch for it. And knowing that in 4.0 "everyone" will have the new Azeroth, the fact of splitting it in multiple major patches works, because i certainly dont want to download a massive 5gb patch anytime soon, for sure.

    They probably COULD name it 3.4, but Pre-Cata patch is basically Pre-4.0, and what comes before 4.0? 3.9 of course. 3.4 is too far from 4.0
    I honestly wish people would stop saying they are going to skip numbers. When have they skipped numbers in the past DURING an expansion? Yes they skip from last patch to the pre-expansion release.. aka 1.12 to 2.0, 2.4 to 3.0, but not actually during an expansion.

    I do admit this could be a place-holder number until they decide what patch it will go into live.

    Cata is taking longer than they planned most likely. That's why we have another raid instance coming probably in 3 months or so. Then this later. It's just filler to hold us over. A lot of guilds will take months more on ICC HMs anyway. Like others said the Nov projection is starting to make a lot of sense for a release.

    Doubt they will do that! What if there is a major bug with that patch? Remember the paladin crusader strike nerf after 2.0 and the paladin DivineStorm nerf after 3.0? I think 4.0 will be released before cata jsut to see how the abilities work ingame. So that when going for "server first lvl 85" all classes get equall chances rather then having 1 class with OP abilities at the start of an expac....they will prolly have it out b4 cata expac to balance it before they raise the levelcap
    Signature infractions suck especially when they are just about the size of TEXT! WTB token limit!

    Re: An Assault on Two Fronts - Patch 3.9

    Hey guys, what happened to the content between patch 2.4.3 and 3.0?? I just KNOW I missed a bunch of stuff! I mean, one minute I go from Quel'thalas and the next Northrend...?? I just KNOW they rushed content and skipped over a bunch of stuff! Where's my 2.5??

    :

    Seriously guys, they throw out "3.9" and suddenly everyone assumes the Cata release timetable has been delayed, and/or there will be content in between 3.3.5 and 3.9. I never got the copy of the memo from Blizzard stating they would absolutely never skip over version numbers. Could I get one of you to send that my way? Your copy of the up-to-date expansion release timetable would also be awesome, I'd love to see it. :P

    OT: I am totally rolling an ally to free Gnomeregan, after I've helped take back the Echo Isles.

    Failure at trolling, or just retarded?

    Cataclysm will be out before the end of 2010, likely Early Fall. Blizzard have said that Cataclysm WILL be released in 2010.

    I'm pretty sure they meant 3.3.9 not 3.9. Especially since the ruby sanctum is in the 3.3.5 patch. Although I can't see where the patch release is mentioned anywhere.

    Because if they went from 3.4 to 4.0 you'd be confused again.

    Yes I think that is what they mean, but will 3.3.3 just bring around certain fixes, pets, and class changes then? Instead of all this extra stuff
