    Gamestop / EBGames confirms the date in their system has been changed from Dec 31, 2010 to November 1, 2010 for delivery date. Unfortunately they have said the date for the collectors edition is still showing as November 12th.

For once, they still test things and even if they work on continuous fire 24/7 I still think 1 month and a half is too little time, and then it should be more... let's say "suspense building", I mean pre events and all that. We should have time to enjoy them in game, not just have 2 days of whatever they prepared then BAM, Cataclysm.

    Never said novemeber was wrong i said nov 2nd is wrong

    Without confirmation from blizzard, the release date for November 2nd, looks less likely as each day goes by. Why? Well suppliers/stockists need about 4-6 weeks lead time, also the "gold" master CD image needs to be sent for production. production takes time, then there is packaging and supply chain control to make sure all the elements are ready for distribution.

    I am still thinking that November 23 is a better date for release.

    I have my own calculations on a release date. I found that Blizzard seems to have at least 60 days from announcement of releasedate to the actual release date. So I checked into it.

    Burning Crusade:
    Announced release date: Nov. 9 2006
    Actual release date: Jan 16 2007
    Diff: 68 days
    Weekday Announced: Thursday

    Lich King:
    Announced release date: Sept 15 2008
    Actual release date: Nov 13 2008
    Diff: 59 days
    Weekday Announced: Tuesday

    StarCraft 2
    Announced release date: May 3 2010
    Actual release date: July 27 2010
    Diff: 85 days
    Weekday Announced: Monday

    That gives an average of 70 days from Announcement of release date to actual releasedate. Which means that it will be late November / early December 2010

    Actually they could have burned the CD's already since content gets patched anyway. So basically the only thing that you need on the CD's are stuff that takes alot of space like textures etc. Considering we need to download a 10gb patch before cata I don't really get the point of even giving us cd's.
