    You all base information on post-pandemic times. Everything is different now. No previous dates can be used as a rough estimate.
    There is a point to capping, else they wouldn't have made a cap for it.

    Blizzard said it comes out this Fall, that was about a month ago. The situation now is pretty much the same as last month.
    Do you have additional information about delaying anything? If so, show us.

    Well, tell me what the point of capping it is then. Less than a month before the release of a new expansion where the capped number is irrelevant and disabled. There is no reason what so ever to cap it just because there is a cap. Expansion is over.

    It's not irrelevant, since the cap represents the passive nerf to raid bosses. The higher the cap, the more corruption raiders can get, the easier bosses are so they can down them.

    Does anyone remember past practices, like, how much ahead were the previous expansion release dates announced?

    Do you raid? I've already explained why it's important, if you don't raid i could see that you don't know what it means though.

    We don't know what it means at all.. you're grasping at straws here. There hasn't been a prepatch without current raid issues. They will get fixed, you are not some messiah who sees this for the first time ever, while the rest is to blind to see.

    and yes, I do raid.

    You don't know what you're arguing here.

    The cap for the cloak is to cap your resistance off. It's the point of maximum boss nerfs due to it.
    This is not an opinion, it's a fact, an effect of the resist mechanism. There is no issue here, idk wtf you mean by this.

    I don't believe any of these arguments about "we have to play a month with max cloak resistance" as I don't believe the percentage of players with maximum cloak resistance is that high.

    No way it's November 3rd. They are not releasing the game on US election day.

    So November 3rd is US selection day... didn't know that.
    Why though? Will be nice to time this to start with Trump's 2nd term.

    november or december release is super unlikely. Blizzard is a business. You don't release an expansion right as your employees are taking their vacation. October release is most likely.

    They have said on multiple occasions, Fall. Not Winter, but Fall. Yes fall goes until Dec 21rd but they made the mistake in the past and released during a holiday month and said they would not make that mistake again.

    109 days from today is Nov 30, which would put pre-patch (9.0.1) on Sept 22,2020.

    Thoughts?
    Simple math check, See when the First Brawl was in BfA, compared to when BfA Launched, then adjust your number. Remember Expacs launch on Tuesdays in NA, and Wed in EU (if memory serves) the 30th of Nov is a Monday.

    They changed the "Launches Fall of 2020" to "Launches Q4 2020", so I'm leaning towards mid-late Oct to early-mid Nov.

    Q4 is October through December. They're not gonna release the expansion (or a raid for that matter) during the holiday period.

    The first raid comes out usually what, a month into the expansion? I'm guessing it's either late October or very early November.

    Is there a link to them saying that? I keep seeing it posted but I only remember it being stated with content patches and in relation to raid tiers. Cataclysm was the only expansion launched in December.
