    Gushing Wound Adjustment - Update May 27

    Our plan is to now reduce the damage done by Gushing Wound with weekly maintenance next week, early on June 3 in this region.

    Could it be a release date?

    The Battle for Azeroth release date was announced on April 5th 2018 and it was released just over four months later on August 14th (131 days).

    Legion's was announced on April 18th 2016 and was released just over four months later on August 30th 2016 (134 days.)

    So IF a release date for Shadowlands is incoming and IF they are following the pattern of the past two expansions that would point to October 20th 2020 or thereabouts.

    Interesting to see.

    Cant wait to hear once again how Lore and RPG aspects of the game are too important for Blizzard (now) so they cant get rid of pain in the ass and let players freely swap Covenant abilities like talents or Warmode.

    If they announce a release date, then everyone will call SL rushed because it has then. Only being in alpha about 2 months.

    Blizz will not do that, so early for an Alpha for an Upcoming Product release of their Franchises.

    So i seriously doubt that. I think it will just be mostly summaries of what we have already heard / seen so far. Maybe a few sneak peeks for Upcoming soon things yet to be tested on the alpha. But thats it.

    I think it also pans out if you go from the start of alpha to release for both those expansions.
    It became clear that it wasn’t realistic to try to get the audience back to being more hardcore, as it had been in the past. -- Tom Chilton

    BFA was barely 3 months when they announced it after alpha release. I can't see the difference one month makes.

    BfA Beta wasn't too short, but devs wasted many time early stage and didn't get any extra to fix systems/classes. And let's face it, if Blizzard would screw SL Alpha start as well, I doubt they would get more than 1-2 extra months. We already know rough deadline - Q4 2020.

    You can freely swap war mode? Maybe you shouldn't advertise cheating since the rest of us can only turn it on in stormwind/org and turn it off in rest areas.

    It doesnt matter when its release date is of when its release date is announced. The majority will still flock here to shine about how its unfinished, rushed or trash. Just like those people have done with every expansion.

    At least if they give a release date, those of us who actually enjoy playing wow will have something to look forward to.

    People will call it rushed even if it was released next year. People complain, it's the nature of the world.

    But do realize that for all the complaints people have, Legion received little and wasn't considered rush. BFA suffered from bad core systems that would take far too much to overhaul. BFA should have been delayed because there was already so much wrong with it. SL has a lot of right going for it currently.

    Rushed isn't the right word since from the looks of alpha the art & torghast team have done most of the work as most classes look exactly the same and have like 1-2 "new" abilities outside of torghast, hopefully they get all this torghast and covenant stuff right

    People will call it rushed if it was in testing for 6 years. Anyways if it's been in about 2 months, 4-5 months after announced release, aren't most expansions about 6-7 months in testing? sounds about right.

    This, i think there will be a lot of higher quality looks at things that aren't in yet. Maybe some more customization options -hopefully- that they don't have in the build yet. Also would give them a chance to talk more about covenants and hopefully explain the system in more detail. Lots to look forward to still even if no release date.

    Don't you think it's quite an easy swap ? It's hearth->toggle. Can be done in less than 30seconds.

    On this update all I can say is:

    GG

    P.s. Give Velf more hairstyles and beard options. Belf are getting ultra hot daddy customizations, don't leave Velf looking like a cheap emo from the 90ies.

    It's coming out late oct/early-mid nov or being delayed til 2021 anyway, there is zero chance it's coming out late nov. (like last week of it) or dec. based off raid release times and vacation times. Last week of Nov and first 2 weeks of Dec would put raid release far too close to Blizzards holiday vacation and the last 2 weeks are no go because they put release itself too close (you don't release a major product and have the majority of your staff disappear a week later.

    Maybe you shouldnt pretend that swapping war mode in the capital and resting areas isnt the same as freely. Blizzard wont pay you for ridiculous defense here.

    What more is there to reveal really? Heres to hoping for a cool cinematic and a release date. Beyond that, what is there to see?
