    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.
    If SL is half-baked this game is going directly into the shitter. They cannot afford 2 bad expansions in a row and they know it.

    How do you people not understand what is going on in the world? Is it because you generally don't leave the house anyway?

    Also - why are you advocating for a rushed release again? Has BfA taught you nothing?

    Yet they love money.

    Let's not forget that BfA wasn't ready - everyone knew it wasn't ready. What did they do - they brought the release date FORWARD a month.

    Funny how it's been a while since they released anything around that time, then...

    By all measurements, BfA has not been a bad expansion to the company in terms of revenue and player retention.

    If we were coming out of WoD, I might agree with you but as it stands, BfA being bad is just as subjective as it was whenever someone calls Legion the worst, or MoP, or WOTLK, or TBC, or Cata.

    I say this as someone who took a 3-month break due to BfA designs.

    Dont care much about SL alpha atm I just want some updates on the game. Is asking for a Deep dive or a "BFA post mortem" like dev post about what they learned from bfa or something like that too much to ask for?

    Also I am more excited for lego star wars the skywalker saga than i am for SL atm, And that game has had more info released about it than BFA.

    What measurements? Link these official measurements, if you'd be so kind.

    6 months is not rushed. 6 months is standard.

    I know it's easy to get stuck in the info bubble of MMO-C, but these forums represents such a minority that it's not even funny.

    The one and single objectively badly received expansion across the board (except many raiders, for obvious reasons), was badly received for objective reasons (no development, shoddy releases, performance issues) and cost immense amounts in revenue lost and players leaving. So much so that they even backtracked on releasing a store mount.

    And that's all I'm gonna say on this overly beaten dead horse of a topic. Thanks uBlock!

    Pre patch could hit in October though.
    It's ok to doubt me this forum has been doubting me since WoD. Just like 24 hours before 100% exp was released I had the number 100 in the title. Or Classic launch. OR BFA Alpha. Lol

    Look they know we got the info they just care if we give you a date. So WE or least I try to be as realistic with you guys or the Twitch world as possible without getting in heat.

    Some things. Alpha should have been out but it got pushed back. We were suppose to have a small get together to play the latest build and learn and ask questions before you all got to see it. Corona took care of that. Confirmed March is no Alpha though I can say that I wouldn't put a dataminable build next week out of the question. If we were gonna try a build odds are it's gonna be good. Rarely have first Alpha builds been good enough to play flawlessly. But with all the encrypted builds we should be ready for possible tower testing asap.

    This = why mic drop gifs were invented.

    Sadly I'm under the impression that memes are a bit of a no-no in this thread... A hell, gonna risk it!

    True true, perhaps it could be an acceptable sacrifice to the Alpha Gods with that in mind.

    They enjoy the streamlined, dumbed down game play that has consistently been pushed into the game over the years.
    Sounds like Hitei and his logic about how the class specs got better as of late lmfao.

    Ahh the typical fanboy response.

    Let's compare the game now, after 15 years of development and supposed "improvements" - to the game from 2004.

    Such a fair and apt comparison. A fanboys wet dream.
