    Come to think of it, someone always says WoW "dies" every expansion.

    Then the next one comes out and sells 10 Million copies.

    Not bad for a dead ass game IMHO.

    I hope that the game is ready to launch mid december but then blizzard just delays it a bit. That way all staff can just take 2 weeks off after the crunchtime they surely must be having right now.

    And then start the new year with a new expo and a staff thats refreshed and ready to go.

    I don't know why you think "laughing a lot" is "upset" mate lol.

    I laugh because the idea that someone is a "wow expert" is a fucking joke. Who are you talking about, exactly? Name 'em. Chances are, they know less about the game than a bunch of people on the forum, maybe even including me.

    Quite. WoW has been called a "dead game" back into late Vanilla. Even when the population was skyrocketing it was a "dead game" according to some people, or about to become one.

    They're basically end-of-the-world prophets. They predict disaster, it doesn't happen, so they just move the date. Oh, this didn't kill WoW, but next expansion will, or thier raid tier I don't like will. Oh that didn't kill WoW, but the next expansion now definitely will! And so on, forever.

    I guess they're hoping that if they stick around long enough, it'll be true, but at this point, we're probably looking at multiple expansions before an expansion even sells badly. And even then, the chances of WoW being shut down are minimal, given things like EQ are still running. I'd expect to be able to play some kind of WoW and Classic in, say, 15 years, now. It might have ceased releasing expansions at that point (even that is only a "might"), and just have a small team doing content updates, keeping the holidays and events running, and adding small new events and so on, but it'll likely still be running (barring apocalypse or some incredibly tectonic shift in gaming which somehow hits all age groups).
    "A youtuber said so."

    "... some wow experts being interviewed..."

    "According to researchers from Wowhead..."

    scourge invasion is what? 3 weeks?
    PvP season is over, M+ season is over, They announced the warnings they need for mounts etc.

    I see no reason they couldnt just spit out that on Monday the invasion begins on tuesday. and we all know that if thats going out (invasion not monday specifically), we will see release soon after.

    They have NO reason to give a massive headsup anymore given that everthings been said and warned about removal etc.

    I'd assume a late November or very early December launch. That way the devs can iron out any kinks before the vacation during the latter half of December for the holidays. If not then, well, probably early next year.

    And you see absolutely no issue with that whatsoever?
    If you buy an 6 Month sub, on a game you dont want to play now, or (most likely) the next Month, i question you ability to handle money. I suggest there are enough people who have their Subscription running, and play the game because they enjoy it. And those people are beeing rewarded with a Bonus.

    People who only play for 1 Month/Content patch, rush through the Content and then cancel their Subscription, are not the target audience.

    Afaik all 6 Month Sub Promotions went to those who were subbed anyway. And yes, Promotions are to help sales/keep money flowing through downtimes. Thats nothing new, and everyone does it. Doesnt make it a Scam.

    But thats a "You" Problem, if you pay for a Service you dont intend to use. Is it not? If you want the Transmog/Mount, and not have a Subscription, you can buy it for 20$. Thats cheaper than buying a 6 Month subscription for a game you dont play.

    I would wager because of the constant whining, bitching and complaining. If one class does in certain situations 20% more Damage/Performance than others.
    Take a Look at changes in the Beta Builds. There is next to no talk about Bugs beeing Fixed, or Technical things changed. Just Tuning/Changing of abilities.

    Sure, we cannot be sure that there is no major blocker that we are not told. But from the Observable stuff, there is little reason to believe that.
    I played the Beta, and with the Exception of half a level missing to max level after the StoryQuest, I ran into no trouble whatsoever. And that was I think over two months ago.

    Yea, but the flipside is, while you cant reliably put a "Timeframe" on those Bugs, and Balance Issues. They could be fixed tomorrow in the best case scenario.

    I think that is what Schwarzkopf was getting at. Nothing is so broken that they need to reinvent the wheel to fix it.

    That is because the public (in that case) for some reason desperately needs a "Release Date". And generally take everything a company says as "Promise".
    "We Might add Unicorns" translates to: "We will definetly add Unicorns, as soon as Possible" for the general Public.

    "When its done" doesnt cut it anymore. I mean (while probably opening Pandoras Box) look at StarCitizen, they didnt give release dates, people complained about no dates. They said they want to get it done by Month X, people complain when its not done there. They then add a reasonable buffer, "Why is it taking so long?"

    If it's not this year they become liable as their previous announcements as well as website for box sales state no later than dec 2020. And I will honestly just give up and uninstall, cancel my pre order if it's not out this year. 15 years of getting assfucked is enough.

    Blizzard seems to have a good amount of unpayed lawyers on this website that jumps to the rescue everytime someone makes a thread that looks to give the company a little bit of critique. How about not worshipping a company and instead try and deal with reality that it is just a company that can make mistakes? Its not the end of the world if someone is critical about them, come on.

    I probably won't refund and will still play but i agree that it shouldn't go over into 2021. I am glad for the delay but i also really want to play the game, like today. I will be pretty upset if they don't push it out in 2020.

    Sorry dude - but you need to be rational on this.

    Firstly the fact that I can be called a blizzard hater and a blizzard lover on the same day pretty much sums up that those terms are just irrational reflections of some internal struggle you have.

    The KEY point here is that NOTHING major is broken... literally NOTHING.

    What is broken is a little bit of balance in some of the systems.
    Except there's several quests that just randomly break with around a 40% chance of it happening(this is still happening as of the latest patch this week and I've reported these quests several times). It takes several drops and repick ups for it to function properly. If several mainline progression hindering bugs aren't "major" then we've got nothing else to talk about.

    There's a difference between "we can't make the announced release date, we'll let you know the new date in a month or two" and complete radio silence about release for the better part of a decade, especially since the scope of Star Citizen kept getting bigger, pushing release ever further away.

    If Warcraft 3 refunded is anything to go by they'll release it on the last day they're allowed to without breaking consumer protection laws. They stated a 2020 release, I think they have at most one month leniency so the latest would be somewhere in january.

    One should hope it'll be in a better state than Wc3:R.

    True that but probably they will change it or gonna push unfinished exp and cut it for more major patches. I dont care much about retail wow atm.

  19. #339
    I wouldn't mind waiting until september 2021...3 years long expansions sounds more like the next logical step, until they stop doing new expansions for wow

    Sick of seeing someone with no facts, no evidence, no anything, come into these forums and make claims on release dates without anything to back it up with.
    Its called a public discussion. Are you new here on the internet?
