Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14313
Another bugfix build has been deployed on test realms tonight. That one really didn't have any interesting changes and it looks like the June 28th release date shouldn't be reported, I'll assume Blizzard is done at this point.

End of Season 9 Postponed for 1 Week
The patch won't hit the live servers next week and as predicted, it means the Arena Season will end later than expected.

[...] Unfortunately, there are many logistical reasons for why we needed to push back the end date to the 28th. Keep in mind our original announcement said it could end "as early as June 21." It wasn't an absolute confirmation of the end date. The announcement now says it could end "as early as June 28", which means it's still not guaranteed to end that day. It just depends on if all of our other ducks are in a row.

Tier 12 Armor Sets - Final Model/Color Preview

    Honestly I think they look way better than some of the previous tiers. Tier 7/8 in Wrath made all melee look like robot humanoids. They look half decent for tier 11 in the videos I saw.

    I hope they fix the T12 Normal Mage for females before patch comes out. It's missing the small zigzag on the chest that appears on the male versions, but ALSO appear on the heroic female version.

    Lawl zaryhm has made himself pretty unpopular with pvpers recently. First with his comments about the guards in Tol Barad now this. Then again, Blizzard has sort of dropped the ball on pvp entirely. Arenas buggy, imbalanced and season going for too long, exploiting rampant, poor rewards. Regular BGs, bot ridden grinds that everyone hates. Rated BGs, hardly anyone does them, nerfed rewards. World PvP, stuffed due to guards. Apparently the population of PvP servers has taken a big hit with Cataclysm, we're seeing a lot of the low pop realms being PvP servers, and its not really hard to see why.

    The 28th shouldn't be reported?


    No idea what you mean Boub, please clarify.

    Its amazing how blizzard managed to do a full tier of sets awful. Really, did they move their entire art department to the so called "titan"? Its unbeliviable. I say again, they should re think this of making sets themed after instances, specially this wanna be one.

    I'm sure all these tiers had to be personally OK'd by Bobby Kotick himself before put into production.

    "it looks like the June 28th release date shouldn't be reported" What does that mean?

I look around the realm I look around my guild and I see a lot more active player loss than that. Maybe they havent unsubscribed yet, but I've seen 2 entire 25 man guilds gutted down to 2 players where the rest of them just quit playing and moved onto other games. No they didnt jump guilds, their toons are still there. No they didnt go to alts. Pretty much all of them have said they're done with caty and may be back next xpac. I dont think thats an abnormal number and that my realm or experience is "unique". You can be a frog standing in a pot of water as it boils on the stove and not feel the heat rising about you or you can take off the myopic blinders and see what is really happening.
    Especially since the 600k loss is on March 1st, and 3 more months are passed without new raids.

    Hmm why do all the normal tier gears look better than the heroic...

    I never thought I would say this, but Paladin tier is one of if not the best looking set of all the tier sets. Firelands Inquisitor for the win!

    Mage: Red bird standing by!

    also wtf is the deal with the priest armor? it looks like a glas bowl could pop up anytime and the priest just went space mode. i think they mixed starcraft with wow to much here..

    Blizzard made a post awhile back stating they wanted a week between the end of the arena season and patch 4.2. If that's still the case... with the new ptr build last night and the fact the end of the season is on June 28th now... I would say that 4.2 would be released on July 5th. I stated 2 months ago that I predicted the patch would go live on/around July 4th. It's just a perfect marketing window. I could be wrong.
