    Blizzard very historically don't announce anything or release anything on weekends, the earliest we'll find out now is Monday morning, and I would doubt significantly that would come with a pre patch being less than 24 hours away.

    I'm 99% sure September 29th can be ruled out now - although this year has been a wild one so.

    I'm noting the ones we get in the launcher/splash. I typically get those maintenance messages on weekends. If it says something like "down for maintenance from 7am - 1pm" then it's likely we're getting prepatch then.

    PTR, Beta & Classic all just received some small patch updates, including a new PTR build that is no longer flagged as release.

    Considering they announced Legion Prepatch THREE days before it came to live. They can still announce the date during the weekend. It's not uncalled for.
    They've already announced the pvp seasons ending soon. It's all just courtesy.

    It literally could be anyones guess.

    Edit: oop i quoted the wrong person by mistake.

    Legion Pre-Patch came with an 11 day notice.
    BfA Pre-Patch came with a 5 day notice.

    To be specific if it was September 29th and the notice was the same time as BfA notice, it would have been 3 hours ago we were notified.

    Man, I can't believe the 29th is pretty much toast by all usual trends now. I mean I'm grateful for another week before prepatch busy-ness to try for Void edge, and a WoD timewalking vendor for some of my deeper alts to go from two handers to dual weilding, but those are literally the only upsides of this uncommonly close pre-patch!

    (Really I just want the customization overhaul, but I REALLY want it, you know?)

    Wrong
    Legions prepatch was announced on the 15th July 2016. It came out on the 19th July 2016. Idk about you but that's not 11days.
    I say 3 days but it's more like 4.

    Bfa was 5days, yes
    Wod was 4days.
    I actually have no clue about ones before that.

    That article was actually published on the 15th though. As seen here
    Not sure why it says the 8th? The 8th was when they announced the pvp seasons end.. and they didnt announce them the same day.

    Looking back at older posts and articles, there's some dated after the 8th and there's no definitive date for the Prepatch.

    Legions prepatch was announced on the 15th. Bet.

    Edit: Wowhead posts, 15th (check the comments with the short notice)
    Youtube videos with the announcements, 15th
    Bluepost on forums, 15th (deleted now)

    I assume they had just updated that 8th of July post. You're correct in that sense then.

    Forgive my confusion because in my head I was thinking a 5 day announcement meant a Friday announcement date (I'm EU player, so a Friday announcement for me would mean pre-patch is 5 days away since we get things on Wednesdays).

    The point I've been trying to make is that they don't historically announce things on the weekend and whilst Legion was a 4 day announcement, that was still announced on a Friday, I was just getting confused because again, in my head a 5 day announcement for me is a Friday announcement.

    Even then though that's not 3 days before, it's 4 days before and more importantly, on the Friday - which we've now surpassed. Not technically, but in the sense I don't think 7:17pm is part of their work day time frame. Meaning I don't see them making an announcement about the pre-patch until the earliest of 9am their time on Monday, which would be a 24 hour notice. I mean it's possible, I just don't personally see it.

    As well as a new PTR build being pushed recently that has removed the release flag. It's possible they were going to release on September 29th but something has gone wrong they're trying to fix and it's now getting pushed back a week but who knows.

    Could be the dadgar issues giving them fits, hopefully they can get them sorted.

    They’ve done far longer maintenance cycles especially the past few weeks. That means nothing.

    Yep looks like it's been delayed, possible delay on the expansion as well, although nothing announced.

    and where they say "we have no idea what this means".

    what it means is that its not releasing on the 29th. the 6th is another story. have to wait and see.

    Confident in saying now pre-patch is certainly not happening on September 29th.

    fall literally meant december, they said "sometime during fall" not "last day of fall"
    it coming out in october does not disprove the fact that december is still technically fall.
