    In the actual stuff, there's some bugs, but it's mostly balancing they could have done live.

    Apparently though they're having problems making 2 raid bosses actually fun.

    Question

    I can't even comprehend anyone actually doing that.

    The expansion will be here for 2 years, what's the big fire and rush? Just go outside, be with family or friends. Watch The Mandalorian season 2 and Star Trek Discovery season 3 in the meantime.

    Plus, playing at launch means super crowded, with wait times, and quest hubs packed, and sometimes major first week bugs that need to be patched. I'd much rather wait to play it after the dust settles.
    Go outside? Spend time with family and friends? During a pandemic? Checks out.

    This is great news, maybe, just maybe, this is the return to the "release it when its ready" method of game design.
    This small thing actually gives me hope for Shadowlands.

    Yes, it's a clusterfuck. There's some classes and specs that are working, some are quite bad, some have stupid interactions with covenants, some covenants work well for some specs while doing nothing for others.

    Sanity has prevailed. It's not in a launch-ready state as it currently stands. Not by a long shot.

    Burning Crusade was delayed 3 months so people complaining are either new or have very poor memory.
    TBC wasn't three months they "hoped to have it out for christmas" 2006 but it got delayed to 2007, it never had an actual date before it got delayed.

I hope not but I would be okay with it.
    That's less than 2 months btw.

    But 2021 would be their like LAST resort, and I for one would hate it, I may not even bother then honestly, it's the principle of it.

    In all fairness I think most of us were more in the "there's no way in hell Activision is going to allow them to delay this late and close to release" camp than the "it doesn't actually need a delay" camp; I'm still surprised they're allowing it to be delayed. Not so much white knighting for blizz as it is having no faith in large companies to put the quality of a product over money lost or bad press gained.

    Honestly, I couldn't be happier.

    We still get prepatch in the next couple weeks (2 weeks after its intended date) which feels like new content, given new systems changes. I just hated the fact that we were looking to have a 3 week prepatch. That is so short for an okay amount of stuff that will go away.

    Ahh, is this one of those 'I don't do a thing so I can't understand why other people do the thing' posts? Just go outside during a pandemic and do so much fun stuff, go see all your family and friends during a pandemic, sounds good bud. Doing some of those is actually illegal where I am living now.

    And Star Trek Discovery? couldn't have used a better example?

    But the pre-patch isn't anything content wise for someone already playing the game, a pet to farm, some ilvl 100 items to farm and try out your new class builds that will take an hour to get used to? Why is the pre-patch hyped up so much, it is almost of no value.

    Still given the year, and given Blizzard is notorious for delaying their launches. I half expected when no PrePatch came out this week, I still got cyberpunk I've been waiting on, and we may get more time with pre-patch. Which will let me boost a lot of alts. So I'll have stuff to do.

    I am honestly in the dark with most of what Shadowlands is even about. I avoid majority of topic and videos on an expansion so it all fresh for me.
    When is blizzard notorious for delaying launches? They've publicly delayed 2 things, TBC and WCIII:R, and we know how that second one turned out.

    Really what I'm wondering is will my (max level) alts still want to care about the neck come pre-patch.

    The delay is probably good for the game but why do you feel the need to laugh at those who had booked time off to do something they enjoy and it has now been crapped on. Says more about you in all honesty.

    So we went from the shortest pre patch ever to maybe the longest pre patch ever

    Would be kind of hard, would have to launch dec 15 for it to be the longest, and that's pushing pretty damn close to christmas.

    They aren't saying why they delayed it. It's not nearly as bad as the Negative Nellies will claim. However it could still use some work.
