    Actually most bugs don't even take that long to fix (there are a few with elusive root causes or very impactful but most are very straight forward).
    The biggest concern isn't bugs, it's adapting the game to feedback, which historically the WoW team is very bad at and usually apply the feedback from the beta somewhere in the final patches. But, no retard system like azerite this time that requires a rework.

    The fact that the roadmap completely omits the prepatch makes me think there wont be a traditional one(4 Week lead up).

    Damn. Someone is super super angry. Maybe a break from the forums will do you some good. Maybe a couple of beers and a movie, or some prayer, or go site seeing. But all the anger is straight unnecessary.

    From all the expansions this has to be the least interesting looking one.

    I'll take it. I don't mind beating most of the crowd to enjoy my playing experience. Hopefully the servers won't be boggled down with lag and DC's, so that I can play and just chill.

    Couldn't agree more. I'm sure it's going to be the same thing we usually get just with better account wide options.

    It's a scumbag tactic that's ruining the best part of an expansion launch by dividing the community.

    We've only seen snippets of the WW cinematic, which will be released at a later date.
    I hope you're right, but that sounds like pure cope to me.

    I agree it's a scumbag tactic, but that is become another industry norm so nothing can be done about it really. FF14 does the same thing.

    If there is to be a positive about early access, it would be that at least all the known server issues that will take place on launch should largely be fixed by the time Aug 26th arrives.

    yea theyve added nothing and changed so little it makes sense they need less time.

    I know they fix 1000 bugs for every 1 we have, but fixing that one bug takes literally years for them. We are currently playing S1 and S2 dungeons with same bugs it had during launch.

    They have actually added a ton of stuff, new big ass zones, new raid and new dungeons, just not dumb systems that nobody asked for, which is a very good thing I assure you. We don't need something dumb like 'azerite armor' or the new 'ap grind' every time lol
