    A death themed expansion done in this way does not appeal to me at all and also a really shitty way to end bfa.
    Also no sign of a old world revamp which the game really really needs now.
    If this leak is real I probably won't play it for long.
    Its a no for me, not even 10% likely.

    Still kind of wild that we really have no idea what's coming next. Usually by now we've seen a consensus in the "leaks" where things are going to go (and Blizz surprises us by doing something different).

    I do wonder, will they do something? I really think without the PTR hype I will be much more likely to unsub.

    I think the Shadowlands stuff is the most believable yet although the leaks are way too elaborate for this point in time.

    Well leak season starts to go strong when we datamine the last patch. That is not possible now. Hell we might not even get 8.3 on the PTR before BlizzCon. Which is kinda shit cause we won't break the previous records. And the Classic VS Retail threads throw the thread off the main page, so people don't find us.

    More likely than not, just like previous expansions, one or two of the leaks in this thread are for the most part true. Everybody just disregards them as bullshit like all the years before and people still cannot learn. Nothing was ever leaked 100% true because a few of the features they said were missing but the general ideas were always leaked in advance. I remember when no one believed warlords of draenor was a legit leak and same for bfa and legion.
    Shadowlands seems to be very probable with tinkers coming in as well.

    But all leaks in these threads were always on day of blizzcon or a day or two before

    Were they? I'm pretty sure we found the webpage a week before and retroactively managed to find the good leak.

    We had MoP and WoD leaks in the summer while their announcements were in the fall. The Shadowlands leak actually fits right along with the timeline, but is way more detailed than the leaks in the past.

    Likely after considering the anniversary patch is in November, same month as Blizzcon. When Cataclysm was announced, Fall of the Lich King hadn't even been announced yet. We probably won't get 8.3 until January, possibly even February.

    90% of the leaks just are obviously fake sounding.

    I doubt ´9.0 will be old gods or shadowlands at this point.

    Want to make a believable leak? Remove either of those two. if i see something about world revamp instead i would call it more believable.

    That's the main reason i don't believe any of the big "leaks" that were announced. If a real leak would be revealed and it gathered enough popularity Blizz would go on a quest to know where the big leak came from. Because big leaks like that with a lot of details and pictures and stuff... those kind of leak can really hurt.
    Blizz would sue the leakers (probably trying to sue in silence so we don't know) But still, those kind of stuff comes out eventually. Heads would roll.

    But leaks are inevitable. Small leaks that offer big lines with no real details don't affect much.

    They certainly have ways to track real leaks. Employees probably have to signs dated attendance sheets. An internal investigation can reveal a lof of stuff. Employees don't want to lose their jobs, they can be sued for a lot of money.

    The risk of being sued is as big as the leak is. Most wouldn't try and reveal too much.

    I think some fake leakers go out of their way to make it look lazy/bad so they can get even more enjoyment out of people actually believing it (like that Ny'alotha map that was posted in 8.3 speculation)

    January makes sense. It'll be a raid patch so it'll have a few months of PTR, and at this point it seems likely to go up in October at the earliest.

    Finally guessed the expansion right for the first time since MoP.

    Well for old gods, we have had Void content for one expansion already, (ghuun, azshara and maybe a 3rd with nzoth if he is the boss) more than the faction content.

    Most people thought we were getting Azshara south seas expansion after MoP and WoD And Legion.

    True, but look at the story hooks! Old Gods, Dragons and Death. That's all we have now really.

    I don't know what to expect. All I can hope for is that all the top level devs are in a room talking about what they have learned from BFA and classic. Max level 60,keep the world and zones, same classes, keep the QOL features. Keep it simple and MAKE IT HARD ffs.
    EDIT: and everyone starts at level 1
