    What are you going on about? What raider would ignore anything that gave them power?

    That doesn't seem normal to me, so either my math is way off, or Blizzard are giving out bad information somewhere. The launcher very clearly says the maintenance is 7:00 to 15:00 CST Wednesday 14th though.

    Somewhere between 4am and 8am here I guess.

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

    Double-checking the Blizzard info, yeah, it looks like they're just going to release it about a day late in the EU, and haven't outright said so, which seems like a good way to make people mad given the Blizzard launcher stuff for the EU clearly and repeatedly says it'll be out on the 13th.

    Schedules are below though:

    NA schedule: https://us.battle.net/support/en/art...aking/22835078

    EU schedule: https://eu.battle.net/support/en/art...aking/21898767

    I guess Blizzard just don't mind annoying people in the EU region with bad info?

    It s always been the case though with EU getting there patch the day after.
    I ve went from an EU account to a US one and I can`t remember the last time the patch was a worldwide release, if anything EU has the advantage as we get to see what trouble the US had with it s patch day before hand

    It's no bad info. Pre-Patch releases just as every pre-patch before it released. It goes up after the scheduled maintenance is completed. They have always worked this way.

    It's absolutely bad info, don't talk nonsense.

    Blizzard put out tons of info on the pre-patch and it all says that it's coming out on the 13th. It should say "13th NA, 14th EU".

    This is the sort of thing where, if someone at my firm did this, there'd have to be a meeting about why we communicated with clients so badly, even if it was "known" by experienced clients that the date in our PR stuff was bollocks. It's not like it would have been difficult for Blizzard to have actually communicated the info.

    They'll 'patch' it in during the maintenance today. So It should be up at 3 PM Pacific or 6 PM Eastern.

    As to when it's actually up, anywhere before or after those times. But more than likely after. But possibly before. But generally that time, or thereabouts.
    I'm a thread killer.

    All patches are deployed on weekly reset day, which in EU is 1 day later.

    This is hardly news.

    Interesting. The link I got said 13th, I was surprised. Either they corrected that or I got the US link because I have a US account as well (which hasn't been active for several years though).

    Is the catchup gear available right away in Icecrown when the patch is live? Or does that come later on with the invasion stuff?

    doubt it will be long. As time has went on through the years patch days are significantly shorter than they used to be.

    It's not bad info. Every player knows by now how patch drops work. You don't need to be told because you should already know.

    How does that not seem normal, patches maintenance etc us has always had a 16 hour headstart over eu simply because the way patches are deployed in different regions?

    Bad info? Because you went in blindly and decided to be affronted by something that isn't an issue,. Blizzard have communicated the issue.

    This is on you not blizzard, its like opening a flat pack reading the wrong set of instructions and kicking off because you can't read Chinese. Without looking at the rest of the instructions, and noticing it has different instructions for different languages.

    This is literally nonsense. If you believe it, you have no idea what 99% of WoW players are like.
