    He tends to be correct in the end, and sit on insider information before it's made public. So, I'm hopeful for April. Corona might change something there as well, but I doubt they'd send signals about it if they weren't sure at this point. There are a ton of reasons why they could be delayed again though, we live in very volatile times but to me the gaming companies should at the very least not be struggling financially... So, put them homeworkers to it!
    Yes he never says dates, just months or weeks. I’ll be right in the end too. I also have insider knowledge. It’s either this week or next week.

    It’s dropping this week, bookmark my post and watch this space!!

    I guess Necromancers could be like Priests, as they channel Necrotic magic just like how Priests channel the Light, whereas Death Knights are one with death, just like how Paladins are one with the Light.
    Yeah I don't get the infatuation with trying to have there as little choices as possible.

    In D&D 5e for instance, a Celestial Warlock or Divine Soul Sorcerer could be considered like a "Cleric" because their theme matches that of being Holy-esque but they will play completely different from a Cleric at the table.

    I feel like there shouldn't be an issue in having multiple themes as long as they effectively are different and offer a different style of that theme.

    Like why couldn't we have an Arcane-based melee fighter or a Holy-based Ranged DPS (not disc which is holy/shadow both). We have two Holy based classes in Priests and Paladins that play nothing like each other. Same for two Fel based classes in Demonhunter and Warlock that do not play anything like each other.

    And I don't know why it actually matters so much that "A Necromancer would just be a demo warlock but with skeles LuL" I mean if the flavor can be different why not? What if somebody always wanted a Holy based pet class?

    Pre patch could hit in October though.
    October 27th prepatch with November 17th Shadowlands launch? I would like it if they were to do 6 weeks of prepatch instead of the usual 3 though.

    So Prepatch anywhere from October 6th-October 27th.

    So you have any quote where Towellie said "it's coming X month/in X weeks" or not? So far it's you that is making clown of himself.

    That would be last possible date for SL this year. Otherwise gap between expansion launch and season 1 would be too big.

    Maybe even it's still week too late, I don't expect Blizzard to launch Mythic raid week before Christmas.

    Already had this discussion earlier in the thread, not doing it again. Feel however you want on the matter, some content creators/streamers get special treatment.

    .
    Indeed.

    Giving out concrete dates would soil their chances of getting information, possibly their standing with the company. Goes for every content-creator/streamer on the "Good list".

    Still using 445 Raden fist weapon on off hand. Wish TD had the lower ilvl since it doesn't scale with it.

    We’ve had this discussion for the last 2 weeks at the very least. Just look at my post history, I said the exact same thing on the 9th of this month. Nothing has changed and as of right now Towelliee doesn’t have insider info yet, despite people thinking otherwise every day in this thread.

    I’m not saying certain streamers don’t get special treatment whatsoever, I’m saying he doesn’t know anything right now so looking to him for information is just wishful thinking. It’s just going around in circles. People are so starved in this thread and it’s constantly showing.

    Here is a clip of him saying he expects something next Monday/Tuesday. Which are March 30/31 respectively, proving you wrong.
    Maybe actually pay attention to the person you're watching?

    He’s just throwing out random timeframes, which is proving my point that he has no clue right now. Yes he’s a streamer, yes he gets insider knowledge. No he doesn’t have any insider knowledge right now.
    You can tell because he’s applying the same mental gymnastics that this barren wasteland of a thread has been applying for the last 30 days.

    ‘It’s got to be next week, there’s no way that it’s NOT then. Anything beyond that just doesn’t make any sense.’ Repeat ad nauseam.

    You can't talk sense into these people. They've got blinders over their eyes.

    They enjoy the streamlined, dumbed down game play that has consistently been pushed into the game over the years.


    I was trying to find comparison shots of action bars from MoP and Legion/BfA. It's honestly hilarious how much they've taken away and destroyed.


    Not to mention that 90% of DPS specs feel exactly the same.

    Except it didn't... Wod and Legion are not that different from each other in terms of Ret Paladin. I played one throughout all of it, there wasn't that much different even with artifacts as a system but go ahead and act superior thinking we enhoy "streamlined dumb down gameplay."

    I'm not the one with blinders.

    Sure if you oversimplify it like that then it is true.

    I suppose they could either do it a week earlier, or they could launch November 17th but start season one mythic 3weeks later instead of 4. Giving the Mythic Teams 2 full clears plus a few days to down the raid before Christmas. I think ideally they still launch Shadowlands late October, but its getting less likely by the week.

    LOL.

    People actually still watch this irrelevant bootlicker? You're joking.

    The same dude that was licking Blizzards boots and shooting down any criticism of BfA during it's Alpha and Beta?(He did this on YouTube, MMO Champ, Reddit AND Official forums). Only to completely change his tune and talk about BfAs issues when it became cool to do so?

    26 weeks. Thats how long the testing period can be before the Prepatch hits with a late October release date and an early April Alpha. So 6.5 months. Realistically they will want to stop doing big class changes etc a few weeks before prepatch launch, so about 6 months. If Alpha doesn't start in the next 2-3 weeks, an October release date goes out the window.

    While he is as giant a shill as taliesin he does have a good record.

    As for that clip, I think what he said earlier about the first 2 weeks of april has more accuracy to it.

    Let's assume Tow is right this time. Monday/Tuesday Dev update video/blog and then Wed or Thurs Alpha launch?

    my release bet is:

    - original plan was bringing it live somewhere between august and october.
    - because being late and foremost of corona (which also will be used as official reason) its around 10th december.

    i do not believe its later, because

    - blizz often showed they have no problem with halfbaked release and can get stuff quickly fixed together
    - „fix it in 9.1“
    - foremost: ATVI will NEVER EVER piss on xmas sells and holiday profits. Never Ever.

    So, first 1-2 weeks in december is totally my bet.
