    This just in: Doubting facts and refusing information from those better informed than yourself makes you NOT a sheep...

    Except for, you know, the sheep that are so into "inDePenDENt ThINkInG" that they begin to deny reality if it doesn't jive with their feefees.

We'll get the alpha eventually. Enjoy the ride.

    Yeah, having Shadow Priests be Old God/ Void themed just doesn't fit my Zandalari

    Translation; "omg someone disagreed with my favourite streamer! How dare he!"

    I suggest looking up "opinion" and "facts" or.. "subjective" and "objective" on Webster's! might help you

Apparently he's so in the know that he's regularly updated when the alpha is being pushed back, weeks in advance (up to a month) rather than just told once a day or two before the actual alpha launch date when Blizzard decides internally to do it. I find it stranger still that he knows anything at all about dataminable builds happening.

    Interesting, too, how no other WoW streamer seems to know anything about the alpha, be it Asmon or Preach or Slootbag or any Method guys. Very curious.
    Bellandular is as connected as @razorpax

    Well, sounds like to me that rumblings are scheduled for next week. And maybe a train too?

    But what are they going to do for like, Draenei? Man'ari skintones now that the legion has fallen? Would be hype as all hell if they finally let us have access to Broken. Guessing there won't be a ton for Goblins/Worgen/Draenei, probably just expanded base options.

    Gnome's only real place to expand was Mechagnomes, and they exist as an AR now, and it's not like there are other "tribes" of gnomes or they typically use warpaint, etc. (Assuming desert gnomes are too much of a joke to be made into actual options).

    Guessing Pandaren, if they get options, will be expanded faces/hair/etc, and nothing crazy.

    Ah man. The more I think about this, the more I can already see the huge shitstorm brewing when Horde have fel orcs, Taunka/Yaungol, lightforged undead, a bunch of troll tribes, warpaint and tattoos across the board, maybe even high elf options for Belves--and Alliance get human racial options, Wildhammer dwarves, and everyone else is just expanded base options.

    Horse mounts/allied races all over again, you heard it here first.
    Most of it is just expanding in options allready there. The new customizations arn't really new races in the wow sense of race, like elf, human, dwarf but more options for the stuff we allready have and more customisation options. Adding in stuff like manri or a whole new thing like broken would need both lore explorations or more options further within there own sub category. This is all gonna be the low hanging fruit stuff, more jewelry and the odd new tribe and subrace that dosnt diverge enough to be it's own allied race.

    Well, I see the common opinion is that Alpha should come next week. Nice

    As for me, I just hope that once it hits, their Battle.net servers won't catch fires, because I've just tried to login and got a 350 min queue to the app Well, either Blizzard has some big release that I'm not aware of or something just crashed big time

    Either Blizzard is having some big release I'm not aware of or something just crashed on the EU side.
    A lot of people are logged at the same time or it is DDOS. Crazy stuff.

    None of those are new races, guy. Troll options already have the Farraki/sandfury, a tribe that has always been hostile and would need said lore explanations to explain why they are suddenly friendly and have young members living and being trained on Darkspear isle. They also seemingly have customization options for dark trolls, a subrace that was, as of BfA, completely wiped during Cataclysm except for a single specific individual.

    Both of those require a much bigger explanation than say Frostborn, who are already on extremely good terms with the regular dwarves, explorer's league and Alliance characters; the man'ari, who Velen has continually tried to convince to seek redemption and who now have no Burning Legion or cause anymore, or Broken, who have been a part of the forces of Exodar since day 1. What would or wouldn't have been an allied race is irrelevant now that allied races are not a focused system. Wildhammer are easily on the same level as Lightforged Draenei, Highmountain Tauren, or Mag'har, yet they are a customization option in Shadowlands.

    I also don't think any of those necessitate further options in subcategories. You could very easily do broken by just having (exactly like DK) a Broken face option that also switches the skin texture to the scarred/more emaciated look of the broken--the only other difference between the two is broken having slimmer biceps and thighs. Unless trolls are wildly outliers, I imagine many of these (Man'ari, Frostborn, Taunka) are potential options. You say it will be "low hanging fruit" but jewelry/hair/etc. requires more work than something like Frostborn or Man'ari, which just involve modifying existing, already mapped textures.

    is anyone, besides streamers with inside info actually hyped? I'm like mildly excited at most.

    Probaby DDOS or that new COD BR thing overloaded their servers (not sure, I'm not into BRs).
