    Still no release date for the Shadowlands prepatch

    If it was gonna release the 30th in EU, that's only 11 more days. Still no confirmation. I think it's gonna be 7th of October

    They can make the release date days in advance it doesnt havr to be a 2 weeks heads up for a patch.

    Well two weeks would be impossible by now. But 11 days is way too short, and it only gets shorter.

    I thought they always gave 2 weeks notice before the end of the PvP season

    They always have ... doesn't mean they always will. But given what they've done in the past - it would have to be 6/10/2020 for pre-patch.

    Due to COVID-19, Germany is running out of sausages and cheese.
    The government considers this to be the Wurst Käse scenario

    That's what people always say when discussing a possible release date.

    I played a bit on the PTR and there were 2 weeks worth of questline but I got the impression there was a 3rd. if there are only 3 weeks worth of quests then Oct 6th makes sense

    if you need a 2 week notice to complete anything before a pre patch you werent very active to begin with otherwise everything is all set and done and youre now just waiting for the pre patch

    I never said I do. It's about having a good idea of when the patch drops. They don't just drop a patch like that without an announcement. The patch could release right now, and I would be ok with it.

    It is just something they simply do. End of season announcement was at latest on friday 2 weeks before patchday.

    If they planned it for 29th, they would have done it already. Actually Blizzard has a target date and if it would have been 29th they would have done that post.

    It simply means prepatch is 6th oct.

    It’s been the targeted release date for over 2 months. Nothing’s changed in that regard. There’s been a PTR release date and an expansion release date for a while.

    There has. Literally we, and others posted these dates out to our guilds back in July. It’s been known that release would be the 27th and prepatch the 29th for a while.

    well you definitely guessed the announce date correctly, however you don't yet know if you were right about the prepatch date. you might well be, but it is still an educated guess at best

    Does it really matter?

    Expansion release date was already announced, and that's the one that matters.
