    So with all the new cosmetic stuff, anyone besides me like to see a option for the forsaken to be able to stand up straight and not hunch over?

    Interesting, did these maps contain anything, finished terrain, etc?

    Towelliee also said 9.1 would drop in August according to his "well trusted sources". And many more "leaks" that turned out to be false over the years.

    Ye, don't believe a single word from that guy. Spreading bullshit for the clickz

    Yep, thinking the same. Considering there might be a mobile warcraft game I wouldn't be too surprised if they changed the face of the franchise a bit. They already started by changing the character creation screen to look more like something from a mobile game. That being said I think Awakenings is 100% fake. Even IF they planned at any point to call it "Awakenings" they would have changed the name by now given that it was handled as a potential expac name LAST leak season. It would be too ridiculous if people guessed the name of the expac after next.

    We just got references, no actual files.

    I may have come off a bit too strong. From the development side, we are still committed to providing fun experiences for our players (which I hope is obvious, but very well may not be). It's just that you can't say that part out loud when trying to get a high investment tentpole feature approved. Housing is a great example; we believe there is a large degree of inherent fun to be had with the concept. Even looking at the post mortem analysis of the garrison system, there were elements that we are certain a majority of players truly enjoyed. You simply can't walk into the room saying, "It will be fun: trust me!" You need to pitch it based on potential engagement and sneak the fun in through the actual implementation.

    Working at Blizzard is still a dream job, at least for someone in my position that has been largely unaffected on a personal level by recent developments.

    I wouldn't trust me, either. And honestly, I had no idea that they were going to be pushing out additional customizations so soon. I was as surprised as everyone else here. I knew that they were coming eventually as they were actively being worked on, but I did not expect them during this expansion cycle.

    Has anyone been keeping themselves aware of current mystery references? I vaguely recall something about Galakrond that we never saw followed up on...

    It must be fun for this guy to larp as a dev and pretend he's someone important for a change.

    (Un)fortunately, I doubt the devs have ever cared about this toxic shithole to pay it any mind.

    A scenario about Galakrond’s death was datamimed and there may be a sly reference to Galakrond in the Ysera “dream” flashback (a giant death drake called Azeroths Demise”).

    There is also a questline about Dark Rangers investigating the Scarlets that has been in the files since BFA and is starting to make more sense now (with Calia and Turalyon implying there will be Lordaeron focus soon)

    Just being on page 300 does kinda underline how little activity general speculation gas had in this expansion, doesn't it.

    Still, a milestone is a milestone. Nice to be on 300 pages. Let's try to make that at least 400 before 9.2 launches.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    We can do it! I wonder how many this will have before 10.0 launches? Seems like MMO-C is combining the patch and expansion threads since the expansion speculation oen got taken down, so i guess we have a headstart of a few hundred pages for expansion speculation now.

    I find it telling how disconnected most of the speculation is from the current narrative. No one is really using the Shadowlands story as a springboard outside of the Jailer winning and remaking the universe in accordance with their deepest desires.

    Shadowlands has been strange so far. You'd expect an expansion about infinite afterlives to have more patch content dedicated to those new afterlife zones, but we're likely going to end up with just Korthia + Zereth Mortis, and no real afterlife exploration post-9.0, which is a shame imo.

    I think it's fine because the only really glaring "missing afterlife" is for Shamans, and that can end up being lumped into the Life realms in a later expansion or could be it's own thing that's separate from the Shadowlands.

    People clearly, VOCALLY aren't that fond of the Shadowlands setting and want to return to Azeroth, so Blizzard is doing the right thing by not stretching stuff out.

    Shadowlands feels more about wrapping up old stories than creating new ones. I think it's fine but it makes for less clear speculation on the next expac (besides the Light stuff coming back). Edit: For me personally it gets me excited for the new stories that will come next but I'm aware people don't have much faith in them or for some reason think we're never going back to Azeroth.

    I think it's for the best tbh, there are already so many glaring plotholes for the 5 major zones, it's probably best not trying to destroy the hope that the rest of the shadowlands works on any sensible principles. It would just invite many more questions about the actual workings of the shadowlands, the basic logicists, the anima and the overall purpose of it all. It's a losing battle and keeping some of the mysticism of the afterlife can only be good for the franchise.
    #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.

    By the way, I do wonder if it wasn't so much that Shadowlands was planned to be shorter but they made it so that if people responded well they could add another afterlife or two, and if not they could just go straight to the First One plane and end it.

    If we end Shadowlands in 9.2 I don't think we have any glaring "missing content" like WoD where stuff obviously just got cancelled.

  20. #5980
    I think we'll get a 9.3. Even if it's just a trumped up Ruby Sanctum patch to transition us to the next expansion. Ion's pride will not allow him to have SL be seen as another WoD.
