    It is biased, it's 3 negative choices, that's not how opinions are, just because I don't think they should delay it that doesn't mean I don't care.
    Unlike you I understand that what you see on the beta you have access to is already months old content, multiple patches behind of what they have internally. So how exactly do you know what state the game is in or what needs to be changed?

    Yes. 100% absolutely. There is no chance in hell that Shadowlands will be finished, let alone tested and balanced by the time it launches.

  3. #223
    It will never be 100% balanced for all types of situations or content unless they just make everything and everyone a template character where everything is the same and homogenized. A few weeks delay wont change anything.

  4. #224
    or blizzard devs is working 24h per day since mid year till now to finish shadowlands before launch or this expansion will be another incomplete released content

    So, yes, delay SL till jan or feb 2021

    You think you want balance, but in reality if every DPS spec did the exact same DPS no matter what the game would be dead in no time. Balance or making everyone the same is what has destroyed the game, there is no class/ spec flair anymore. There are like 4 versions of every spell for different classes used to be Druids were Battle Rezzers, Shammys had BL, things like that. Balance at the end of the day is what is the unachievable utopia everyone thinks they want, but can never be achieved because there would be no reason to push yourself if everyone does the same thing.

    9.0 will not be balanced yes however more beta time will not fix that. They have more or less ran their course with that. Adding more time wouldnt do anything. You have to get the product into the player's hands.

    Based on what I've heard from those in the beta, the game is in a playable state, and the disappointment from delaying a release this close would probably be more detrimental than rushing fixes for the last few aspects that require more polish. Between D3's season, SC2's co-op prestiges, WC3, FFXIV, and getting more achievements in WoW, I'm in no need of new content, but I still think they should hit their deadline over delaying.

    This !! Vacation is set and would be really hard to reschedule without months notice.
    OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."

    And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"

    Nonsense. You privliaged kids need a hobby. You really think game design is about balance? smh.

    Which people in the Beta? Have you ever looked at the SL Beta forums? One of the more popular threads is a plea to delay Shadowlands. Literally most posts in the Beta forums are from worried testers about the state of Shadowlands.

  13. #233
    I was surprised that 45% voted yes.

    First, people, like me, only sub after the expansion.
    Who is gonna pay these Blizzard employees if delayed.

    Second, you just play the overpowered class.
    I don't see people complain about DK.

    Do you submit Vacation Request a month ahead?
    I thought people are forced to use all their vacation. They have none now.

    Fellow players in my raid group. I don't delve into the beta forums much for spoiler reasons. They say that the leveling experience feels mostly finished and that crafting still needs another pass, which they have time for. They have a few weeks after launch to tune the raids and M+. They haven't commented on individual class design.

    BfA had a lot of pleas for delays if I remember correctly, and it did take Blizzard some time to fix some systems (anything dealing with Azerite), but the leveling experience was probably one of the expansion's best points, and that was good at release.

    I'm not saying that people's concerns are unwarranted or that wanting a delay is illogical. I'm just saying that for the group I play in, where the announcement is already made and expectations are set, I feel delaying is going to hurt player morale, and that will probably outweigh any benefit from the changes that they'd enact with the extra time.

    We literally haven't been able to level to max level once through questing in the last month in Shadowlands. What game are you playing.
    I leveled to 60 in Beta just fine. I have had no crashes. So,I literally have been able to level to Max now. I had far more crashes and struggled immensely to level to max in BFA beta. I am not buying what you are selling at all.

    The only way you can make them delay it until it's actually ready is by not buying it at launch, you're part of the problem.

  17. #237
    it doesn't matter, they just don't have the talent anymore. All the people who built this game has left the company a long time ago. It's just going to be the same bland bowl of slop BFA was. A few more of these expansion packs and they will become a completely irrelevant company like BioWare did and their owners will reduce them into a skeleton crew to maintain their somewhat profitable projects like hearthstone.

  18. #238
    Yes, we are saying this for 2 years now but Actiblizz needs to make some money for their quarter money thingy that nobody cares about. Guess they can always fix the game in 9.3 then. Have fun beta testing a "finished" game for 2 years you guys.

  19. #239
    I wouldn't mind extended pre patch, they should hurry the hell up with releasing it. Please free me of this god damn absurd, worst mechanic in the decade CORRUPTION.
    Censorship apologists deserve [REDACTED]

    This makes zero sense. Also it feels like part of your statement is missing
