    I wish this was true, but as we have seen with BfA, they certainly do not delay an unfinished producr anymore.

    you guys really do have some serious issues
    The Blizzard of today is not the Blizzard that used the MO you describe. People complained about the Azerite system throughout the BFA beta and they made no attempts to fix it. We already know the release date for Shadowlands so asking for a date on the pre-patch is not unreasonable. There's nothing to "rush out" in the prepatch either because it's an event they've reused twice already and the level squish already present in Shadowlands beta.

    Prepatch dates for bfa and legion were announced 4 days ahead of time.

    If we don't have one Friday, then it's actually something to get upset over

    Why? I get more optimistic, as that makes more sense.

    Some people complained about it. The majority didn't have any problems with azerite gear. Blizzard shouldn't change things around the vocal minority.

    Lmao quickly deleting tweets. They are in panic mode. I bet they're currently busy coming up with a nice corporate speak explanation for the delay of the expac.

    Since there is no thing as a finishied game in 2020, there is nothing to delay really.

    Because the players have proven they cannot act like adults if things change. IF they give a time and it isn't met, there will be whining players all over the place accusing Blizzard of being lairs or saying "Bliz, you promised on this date...".

    They won't delay it. Stop spreading false information. You end up confusing people. But I guess that's the goal or?

    This is true. "Blizzard! You promised! We trused you! We had a verbal contract!"

    No, they didn't :P

    The funniest thing of this whole drama is that now people somehow assume the late prepatch release means a delay of SL release...what? Why? How?

    Deleting one tweet now = panic mode? People will spin anything for their anti-Blizzard narrative.

    Not saying its impossible for them to delay the expansion but Blizzard is very careful about announcing things without being VERY confident they can make that date. Unless something major has set them back a long ways, I wouldn't bet on a delay to the expansion release. Here's the thing, they have (if the pre-patch comes Oct 6) 3 weeks of pre-patch and then 2 weeks of "launch" to really iron out the wrinkles. Both of these periods are non competitive periods where they can apply weekly patches to finalize everything. Not to mention that I am sure they gave themselves some leeway with the expansion release date, not like Covid-19 was a surprise to us AFTER they announced the release date, they knew the limitations of their work flow long before they announced that release date. I don't expect a delay, just a short pre-patch.

    As for that tweet. Soon(tm) has become notorious for meaning a long time. So much so that a Blizzard employee even once posted "Not Soon(tm)" and clarified that he meant not long. This post did not convey what Blizzard has planned, obviously, and was promptly removed.

    People need to seriously stop this "delayed expansion" sillyness. Its not going to happen.

    Spreading false information based on nothing does no godo other than making people confused and endless pointless discussion about something which is not the case.

    Stop assuming things you can't know is a good rule on the internet.

    because " THE PREPATCH NEVER LASTED LESS THAN 4 WEEKS AND IT IS AN IMMUABLE TRADITION THAT CANT POSSIBLY EVER CHANGE"

    It was one tweet, not plural like the post you quoted would make you think. It simply said "Soon(tm) its ready when its ready" in reference to when the prepatch is coming. They promptly removed that tweet and nobody really knows why, so all of the intellectuals in this thread are back to tell us why their hair-brained reason is more likely than our logical ones.

    The WOW twitter acccount deleted one tweet that was a response to a question about when pre-patch was going to hit. It said "Soon. It will be ready when it is ready". IT was basically a joke tweet based on a long time BLizzard lline and it was deleted.
