    Not really. It means that Blizzard's HR department needs to be investigated and penalized, but this doesn't mean things have escalated or that devs are being mistreated and/or walking out.

    Things were infinitely worse when the lawsuit broke and Activision had that awful reply... this extension just means there are additional things they are looking into, not that they (Blizz) are even worse.

    You don’t know this as we have no details about 9.1.5 at all.

    But yes, I agree, these are most likely just side features to a patch that will have 30 minutes of actual content. Side features that have been heavily requested for years and a few of them were supposed to come even earlier than 9.1.5. The timing for all of this in 9.1.5 just seems not to be motivated by listening to player feedback, but by trying to win back players with minimal effort with features that we once deemed unnecessary (aka “no more customization coming in Shadowlands“ which was officially stated vs us getting new customization after Shadowlands‘ poor reception, player retention and the bombing of 9.1 plus the lawsuit.
    I mean you have to understand your track record for conspiracy theories being right is pretty terrible, right? You think literally everything that happens is some indication that the game is moments away from imploding. At best what you're arguing here is that they moved a few features that were being worked on already up a bit. Oh no, the absolute horror, we got stuff people asked for sooner rather than way later because they ostensibly want to do damage control.

    If it's real that sounds very "Final Shadowlands Patch."

    Which is why I think it's fake. I'm still insistant that 9.3 exists and 10.0 will be early 2023 until told otherwise.
    WoW has Cancer. First you cut out the cancer (abusive devs), then you assign an aggressive treatment plan (major design rework) to save it.

    Or you just let it die because that's too expensive.

    After people were practically begging to be trolled by fake leaks for weeks.. it's kinda sad how the forum playerbase was essentially begging the attention-whores of the fanbase to make them poorly photoshopped fanfics...
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    Jolly you must be fun at parties.
    It's a tradition of this thread, leak season is always a fun time because of 1. how ridiculous most of those leaks are 2. the excitement of finding the real one. Because yes, historically there has always been a leak on those forums even though most of them happened just a few hours before Blizzcon/Gamescon/reveal.

    Don't ruin the fun, join in! All aboard the (broken) hype train, tchoootchoooo!

    i mean its more likely that it does exist and we will have a longer expansion than if they scrapped a patch and somehow managed to get a 10.0 out in the regular timeframe

    For that matter, it's far more likely at this point that 10.0 has been delayed than that it hasn't, based on their original production goals.

    Did you even bother to look down in the corner or even the timestamp? That photo was posted 6 years ago.

    What makes you so sure of that? The poster has certainly been here long enough to know XCHUYUi.

    It's more concerning that you didn't immediately recognise it and are referring to features of the image itself rather than the mere fact that this thing has been posted here hundreds of times since 2015.

    Seems a bit early for a 9.2 announcement, but who’s making fake leaks for content patches anyway?

    And you can instantly tell that is a fake. Blizzard has never used W for any patch or expansion logo and they sure as hell don't badly photoshop the expansion name on top like that either.

    They are talking about the leaked expansion logo

    Not the patch logo.

    ... Is this a joke?

    The W logo has been the prominent patch logo design since 8.1

    You‘re wrong.

    https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Patch_8.2.0

    Fate of Eternity sounds very in-line with their previous patch names, the logo looks fine and the name sounds fitting if it’s the conclusion of Shadowlands. Eternity reminds me a bit of infinite, Infinite Dragonswarm, Murozond etc. Would be neat if Zovaal and Murozond are somehow connected and want to get rid of eternity altogether. This would be a nice lead into the next (Dragon focused) expansion as well.
