    Nice to hear Claudia Christian this trailer. Also noting the third race highlighted...We got Earthen, Arathi, and something else. Very tribal.

    Only level to 80? Is that not part of the game. That is the most fun part of an expansion launch. They are just ruining that "everyone at the same time" exploring the new zones. I get it that I'm mostly talking out of fomo, and I will not give into it and shill out an extra 40€ for these opportunists game companies that do this type of shit, but yes it is going to suck having bought a game, having them announce a "release date" for that game, and then logging into said game and seeing other people in your server, guild and friend list enjoying the game that hasn't come out yet unless you're a premium paying player.
    And you can all defend this but that doesn't change the fact that for the last 15 years everyone has normalized paying this ridiculous prices for "extra special" versions of games, or the (no longer) micro-transaction nonsense and you all just lap it up as if it's gourmet food.

    prepatch should be in July then, probably mid July? Prepatch in 4-5 weeks, most likely.

    It is a part of the game, but it isn't anything that give you any advantage over another player because end game content will not be available until release and season 1 doesn't start until a week after that.

    YOu also seem to ignroe that 1)It will spread out the users so everyone isn't logging on at tyhe same time day 1. YOu also ignore the fact that the eraly access people will be the ones dealing with a buggy game and have to deal with down time. By the time you get on the game will be smoothed out. Trust me, most people with early access won't be enjoying the diisconnects and server issues.

    Finally, the fact that you carea bout how others play the game is a you problem. IT is very elitist to sit he high horse and try to dictate how the game should be operated.
    You are not the sole arbiter of how a game operates.

    Prepatch is 4 weeks. So, prepatch will drop August 5th.

    But it wasn't trash. Calling that trash means you are calling every single expansion trailer trash and the original as well. It wasn't trash and it was a very cool recap of the game's history.

    Why is it that having "power" or "race" advantage is the only way people can understand unfairness in gaming? So enjoying the game first than other players that legitimatly bought the same game is not an advantage? It's only if you win some made up race in your heads?

    I'm only complaining that release date is one for premium players and another for less premium players. That's what I'm complaining about. And yes some people may think it's unfair others ahve access to pets because they pay more, and others may even think it's only unfair if they provide power benifits otherwise it's not unfair. Fine, you do you girl. But I personally just want to play this game as soon as possible. I don't care about season one, I don't care that mythics and whatever else only start a few days later, I just want to play this game ASAP because I'm done with dragonflight. I never cared about the disconnects and the bugs. It's not my problem how they spreads players. And I'm certain 3 days later we'll all still be dealing with plenty of those.

    And I never criticized how other people play the game. You're being the elitist one if you think that only player power should count for pay to win. Depending on what your objective playing the game is, then you can see other things as pay to win. As someone who primarily enjoys the story and the levelling process then yes, I consider paying to get to these parts first, pay to win. Sorry if your point of view is different than mine. You are nit the sole arbiter of how others feel about the games they love and what makes them disappointed on how a company decides to value.

    Is this really your argument, that people can experience a game before you do?

    You'd never buy a game if that was your attitude. Someone, somewhere, is always going to experience a game's story before you do. Even without TWW having a few days of early access, you're not going to be the first one in the game. People have played through both alpha and beta. People will have the ability to start the live game before you can. People will work through the game faster than you do.

    It's a woman and I'm pretty sure it's the captain from the new starting zone they introduced a few years back
