    So I personally am cautiously optimistic.

    Also, if we want to follow the trend set by the last 6 expansions as an example (bad, good, bad, good, bad, good) - were due for something decent.
    I'm generally more optimistic than pessimistic but this makes me really believe in either Diablo 4 OR an entirely new title.
    Inb4 Starcraft Battle Royale.

    This is so sad but true. Just like how most of the people saying "this is it, I'm quitting!" over 8.2 will still be here moaning about 9.2.

    Given the constant shifting of team members and layoffs and job postings, what basis do you have to claim that it's the same team?

    Not trying to trap you here, just calling for consistency of making claims that require proof.
    In case it wasn't clear, I'm a fan of what Blizzard COULD be, not the ruins of what it is now.

    And yes, they set a sales record for the game coming off of Legion, no matter how much you want to try and spin that as something negative, it simply isn't. Not for a 14-year old title.

    The "if it was doing so great they'd be doing X for sure!"-card is quaint as well, but it changes depending on who's using it. You don't speak for what they would do, that's just guesswork fixed in emotional arguments. Anyone can do it.

    Example: "If the game was doing so badly, they'd pull the brakes as they did during WoD. Has it happened yet? Doesn't seem like it. Shame I guess for the people desperate to believe that BfA is somehow literally the worst out of all the "literally worst!!!!"-stamps that this game's been through in its lifetime."

    Same as a decade ago, I bet these debates will still go on 10 years more from now. Since people simply never seem to learn.
    All i see is someone who will excuse everything that Blizz does bcs otherwise she would have to use her brin to think for herself and not just parrot what Blizz is saying...

    They say that every Blizzcon lol.

    And for the past couple of years they've been underwhelming, disappointing and boring. And more of an advertisement for them and Activision trash than anything. The panels just lack passion and the people hosting them barely seem interested or want to.

    Blizzcon hasn't been about the fans for a while.

    Yeah, some of them said "I've given up on this shit game!" a decade ago and are still here, still regularly giving their money to Blizzard, still caring.
    Although no company has managed to please and draw everyone, Blizzard's sure as hell pulled off a miracle in terms of keeping people hooked. I never even knew that people would still consume a product despite hating it before I entered these forums.

    Did you use your "brin" to come up with that highly productive and entirely original thought?
    My "brin" functioning differently from most on MMO-C would be a compliment to boot.

    Although I'm looking forward to new expansion information but I'm not exactly hyped either. Probably have been playing WoW for too long.

    All he did was speculate. 8.3 releasing in 2020 is mere speculation at best, not a fact

    I don't care about Retail WoW. Classic will be out before BlizzCon and they already said there are nore major Games coming this Year.

    I don’t recall ever reading or hearing Blizzard people downplay the upcoming Blizzcon months in advance to favor the following year’s.

    And they’ve always been advertisements. What we’ve been missing in recent years is the hype machine that was Metzen.
    Brack and Morhaime are near the bottom of magnitudes on the hype-Richter scale.

    Indeed, the con is as much about the fans (interacting with and advertising to us) as it always were, regardless of what the resident alternative facts-machine would say.

    Right, but Blizzcon 2019 is about 2020.

    When I saw the BFA cinematic at Blizzcon 2017 the hype couldn't be contained. Now I learned. I remember the hopes I had for a good story, man how naive I was. Not even the gameplay aside from Raids has kept me interested. 8.2 is just more of the same and the narrative is just getting worst.

    Lesson learned, I'm just going to watch it with no expectations and no hype, and to not be fooled by a 2 million $ cinematic.

    Voted "Very Skeptical"..which does not mean i will not follow the announcements very closely, it just means my expectations are very slim. I had huge expectations after Legion...and they managed to disappont all of them.
    I have extremely little expectations right now, which means Blizzard SHOULD be able to surpise me in a positive way. Which means i might actually enjoy this Blizzcon more than the last.

    I'm excited by the fact that we'll know what 9.0 will be and all that. Beyond that though, I'm kinda... "meh" about it.

    I’ve actually been bad at this myself starting with Cata.
    I consistently get mega-hyped for what turns out to be the crap expansions and “meh” at stuff like MoP and Legion. I even recognized that trend beforehand with BfA and I still fell for it like WoD. Thus, bizarrely, I guess I should sorta hope for a /shrug in 2019?

    Meh gave them the benefit of the doubt with WoD.

    BFA basically took that benefit and spat on it so personally I couldn't care less what 9.0 has. Could remove all the timegating and RNG aspects and to be honest I'd still either not come back or wait till 9.3 to get it.

    Actually, no. My point stands. You're guessworking, you have no actual facts as to what their release schedule will be nor what they'll announce so pretending that you do is just redundant.
    Take another look, he's trying to claim that 8.3 will be out before the end of the year, you just have zero clue how to read.

    It is facts lol, regardless of what you want to tell yourself to feel better. No raid tier is going to last under 6 months, minimum, this is a fact given by evidence of the last 14 years of the game being around. They're not going to kill off a major villain that players have wanted to fight for a decade with a raid that will last less than 6 months. You're actually an idiot if you believe otherwise.
