    Again, it is quite similar to us attacking ICC halfway in. The lich king doesnt draw his pwoer from ICC, but it is where his main supporters and army is situated. Where would he then move that would allow him to remain a credible threat, especially for as long as 2 patches.

    My fear is pretty much that like BfA the expansion might end up feeling like two disconnected stories trying to mesh together.
    I’m fairly certain even without his entire army he’s enough of a threat

    They usually don't talk about release dates for patches during Blizzcon like ever.

    Everyone is being affected by covid but I don't have to pay 15 dollars less for an expansion or 5 dollars less for a sub because I'm struggling.

    The backlash on no new customization is probably going to be bigger than they were expecting.

    The new customization added in the pre-patch was a massive taste at something the playerbase was never used to, and always wanted, and it's leaving everyone craving more.

    Well, it's because it was also touted as an expansion feature.

    In that sense, even BfA handled it better. At least they didn't give us allied races for 7.3.5 and 8.0, then went "Nope. Sorry, nothing planned beyond that." I can't believe I'm unironically saying BfA handled anything better, but here we are..

    With how vague it was, I'm thinking 9.1 is probably July, maybe even August at the earliest.

    They showed so little and mostly talked about what they were planning to do, or what they wanted to do, or how they were feeling this and that out that it gave me the vibe that they're really early in its development.

    It should be noted that they said stuff like "Broker Megadungeon" in the presentation video and then later on outright call it by its name. So the video was probably way earlier than how far along they are.

    Apparently they hinted at this in the Q&A but I didn't catch it. Makes sense though if Muffinus's deep dive was recorded last year.

    That's a fair point to make, yes.

    Frankly, a lot of it seems to be pre-recorded.

    No its not. Its just a niche group of rp'ers who scream and cry for this kind of stuff. "omg why cant Blood Elves have X colour eyez pls blizzzz k thx so i can live out my fantasy of being a blue/pink eyed elf yay!!11".

    The vast majority of people simply couldnt give a shit and dont care about any of this crap.

    So...
    I'm guessing we're not going to see Mueh'zala until later right? Or until something happens with Odyn/Helya and the Drust?

    Another day, another Deal....

    Couldn't be more wrong. Most people who want customization don't RP. The vast majority of wow players are ultra casual lfr only players who would rather have more customization and transmog options than adding new raids. The playerbase changed.

    Cool dismissal but not grounded in reality.

    Probably one that make sense with the zone and share similarities with the others we already seen before

    this one is ugly as hell with his enormous head

    The thing is, it's not supposed to be a full-on dragon creature, it's a dragon-like creature with other animals bits patched into it.

    Anyway, all tastes are in nature, some won't like it, some will, but I appreciate the reference, the art from Ghibli is stunning.
    i know very well from where did they get the inspiration, im just saying it was done awfully, the mount to me is ugly as real with a disproportional head

    and honestly that seems more like a bastion mount since they resemble the larions

    This is absolutely not the case.

    When I more think about it, I don't get why people think this patch will be super late (some even say July+). Main argument I see is that panel lacked usual videos presenting zones from above.

    But think about it - this is a job for art team. They never show gameplay, just terrain and mobs. How the hell 9.1 assets wouldn't be already done? What do you think art team was doing from let's say summer '20 to now? Doing 15th iteration of soulbinds? Fixing bugs in world quests? It simply doesn't make sense these things wouldn't be done already.

    This exactly. It's not about rolists, it's about a major chunk of the playerbase. But Blizzard is determined to cater more to the hardcore gamers so...

    Blizzard catters to groups that are loudest. WoW/devs/playerbase very often reminds me of politics and mechanisms used there. And no wonder since we talk about ~5 milion community of average, it's like small country.
