    Posted the following in another thread so figure I'll post it here as well / more potential discussion:

    -

    Cba to make a new thread (or search, so if posted already my apologies) - so hijacking this one:

    Now, it's probably speculation, but worth noting that tech radar posted about new games getting Ray tracing including WoW Shadowlands that is...
    World of Warcraft: Shadowlands was also announced as getting ray-traced shadows when it (hopefully) comes out in November
    Just food for thought. I know RTS is in currently with prepatch, so that's what makes me wonder why they'd say it's not already in and use otherwise random speculation.

    Sauce: https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/nv...ft-shadowlands

    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    2021 is looking more and more likely.
    Oh noes. Should we raise pitchforks and set HQ ablaze in fire?

    Relax. My god. It's just a game bro.

    I've gotta be honest, even though I was happy Blizzard did the right thing & delayed the game, & even though I knew the only way to balance all these daft systems was to make them all close to irrelevant, the hype I had for Shadowlands has slowly whittled away leaving nothing but apathy in its place. I went from reading up on Discords & beta testing with guildies wherever possible to barely paying attention to anything WoW related. We finished collecting all our mythic mounts a few months back so no-one is even logging into live at the moment, as there's bugger all of interest to do.

    Last time I felt like this was 4.3, & then I ended up taking an 18 month break & missing the early patches of one of the games best ever expansions... The 15 months or so I took off between 8.0 & 8.3 were down to hating the gameplay, but this what I'm feeling now & felt all that time ago? This is just nothing but apathy.

    If the game needs another delay, I'll still want them to do the right thing & delay it, but if not for the people I play with, I think I'd give up hope entirely.

    If they don't release expansion in this year this only make ppl mass unsub and quiting. For regular players it already nothing to do, few mounts with game balanced around lvl 60 gonna make ppl only frustrated.

    It will be out in December.

    Regular player that hasn't played in a while outside of Beta and a few days of at leveling here and there, becasue we got our mythic N'zoth kill a while back and everyone is taking a break. This delay is no skin off my back.

    There were people calling for class action lawsuits against Blizzard because the mount you got for buying the WoD collector's edition could fly while we could not do so initially in Draenor and they called it false advertising, bait and switch, and several other things.

    It's totally okay that there's been nothing confirmed yet. They're still hammering out so many problems on the beta. Besides, every day that goes by the less likely it is I have to choose between properly enjoying Cyberpunk 2077 and WoW.

    The same people whining about it not having a release date or being delayed would be the same people whining that they launched an incomplete game and should have waited. Launch when it is ready, not a day before. It’s not like we have a freaking pandemic going on and people are forced to work from home, which is where they should be able to go to relax, yet here we are. I would imagine the dev team are having cabin fever worse than a lot of us.

    Sigh. That's not what he said. He said that people thinking that systems are going to be removed are going to be in for a surprise and will still hate it.

    Well, we never had a game that is broken of full of bugs, so what can I tell you. Been playing 15 years.. one of the games with the least number of bugs, which is a big great thing for such a large game.

    I don´t think we´ll have a pre patch for more than 2 months.

    I think it will be late November to early December. Or else, mid January after the holidays then.

    so heres how confused they are with just the soulbind system

    originally they had them completely unbalanced in terms of renown unlock and strength but they normalized that
    then the fact the conduit slots were unbalanced but they fixed it everyone got 3


    then the delay happened

    they changed the weekly cd to a charge system...better but more convoluted than just allowing a free swap
    they made potency only 2 per tree to help deal with the problem of multi spec which also made them less meaningful
    they then flipped the trees allowing you to get the meaningful traits faster but completely negating the changes made before the delay because they have to rebalance it again

    will it be fixed before launch?? doubtful because they cant fix it
    will it be working by launch?? oh absolutely even if they make it completely meaningless


    covenant abilities are still be reworked even just minor changes like the monk kyrian ability
    will it be balanced by launch?? no way maybe by 9.1
    will it work by launch?? yep

    they still dont have leveling working or the world content due to phasing issues and other bugs
    they have to have this fixed before launch even considering the fact they are now slowly fixing them

    they have 6 weeks and i think they can do it

    No one gives a shit if you want to argue semantics on what they are or are not required to do by law, and I can absolutely guarantee that you are not going to win a legal battle with Activision-Blizzard because they didn't release something by a proposed date.
    Law is about semantics mr armchair lawyer so I find it amusing that you keep arguing law yet say you don't care about semantics. Which means you don't understand the subject at all.

    Anyone else think we might get a release date announcement on the original release date of the 26th/27th? If we're still looking at a 2020 release a date announcement can't be far off.

    If it needs delay until 21, so be it.
    That worldwide pandemic has been raging for more than half a year when they announced the release date and the last 6-month-promo was only 4 months ago which is strange at the least.
