    Yeah, I think Feb 22 / Mar 1 are the most plausible dates. Feb 15 could be, if they announce it today. I guess we'll see. Feb 22 seems kinda fitting though with GW2 expansion just a few days later.

    And sorry, but who is really considering anything related to the next expansion without a proper announcement that it's coming? Blizzard isn't going to randomly announce the next expansion on a Thursday without noticing everybody days before.

    Surprise album releases are a thing, but a surprise expansion announcement? With the hype starting to build after? Uhm...

    There are 9 double eyes then one single eye and then two more double eyes. Clearly 9.2.

    Ah, you cracked the code. That's definitely going to be the 9.2 release date announcement.

    This doesn't awsner the question tho.. I am curious what people expect of housing and what the gameplay is? pet battles is gameplay to you know.

    Like I said, I don't want a third itteration of the mission table or put down pointless paintings on the wall. Like what exactly do I do in that house?

    Look at ESO. Housing there is incredibly popular. And another point for housing: it's a money printer if the game has a cash shop. And on top of that it's never play to win, so putting all the nice decoration stuff and houses in the cash shop for $$$ is no issue at all.

    Most likely nothing, I don't think housing is particularly interesting for anyone who's not a roleplayer. I'd still be very happy if we get it, and I'm sure they could tie a random system or two to it but most of what I want is just to make little spots for myself to hang out in with a friend or two.

    Ye same here, I just asked the question to someone who wants to see it happen ( housing) to what the actual fucntion or gameplay is with housing. I honestly don't see it.. What do I do in this furnitured house? tell me.

    Okey, I only played eso at the start and quit in the first year I think, due to their horrible fps dropps and overral not very smooth gameplay, so I have no idea... but again.. What is it for me( player) what is the gameplay in wow if housing is in? besides money, this doesn't help to get me slighty interested.

    It's a roleplay thing, I get it. But it's not a small feature.. so it should have more then just being able to putt a chair down, See what I mean?
    What's in it for me?

    Fair enough. It does seem like it, I am just trying to think of stuff what I want or could do there.. I mean it's a pretty big undertaking and to just be.. while here you have your own house and have fun, doesn't seem worth the time. Hence I am asking.


    It just doesn't seem to add a whole lot and it seems a to big of a undertaking and to make it feel rich with a lot of options it will take quite some dev time. People obviously want to choose where to place their house and change as much as possible or else it would feel even more pointless. Garrisons left me with a real sour taste and the essense of player housing was there.. but it failed flat and felt super limited. Putting down some rewards to show off or having a garden just isn't going to cut it really. I just can't imagine a 2.0 version of it and be fun.. It just seems really boring.

    Please don't; I quit ESO due to them putting so much time into Housing that the rest of the game suffered. PvE zones got smaller with less to do in them and PvP got completely ignored. Everything that comes out is usually for Housing; a meme arose that ESO's end game is Housing.

    I hope that if WoW does add Player Housing, it has some gameplay feature besides hiding in your own instance putting paintings on walls and statues in your yard. I'd prefer they spend their time on more dungeons, than just 8 (10 in 9.2), and add more outside zones to play in.

    Wow, Taliesin isn't even subtle about it.

    So looks like March release is out of question. Right now I would say 75% on 15th and 25% on 22nd.

    I'm just saying why Housing can be incredibly profitable for developers. And ZOS is putting a lot of effort into the housing stuff, exactly because of that. And I agree, their other work suffered from this, especially when it's about "real" content for PvE and PvP.

    The part of the playerbse that doesn't hyperanalyse every single file added onto the PTR, aka the high majority, for them it very much is big news.
    True but wouldn't that 'for us' also count for people who follow a wow strimmer on twitter?

    My guess would be 22/23 feb for 9.2 if it is indeed announced today.
    I will not reply to posts that are non-constructive or contain flaming and/or trolling.

    I agree with you about it being profitable. I'm not against Housing, I'm just afraid of what we'll lose that I enjoy in WoW to implement it.

    Damn feb 15/16 release for 9.2, not too far I guess.
    Means early march at earliest for 10.0, probably after Race for World First not to coincide for viewers for that event

    Not really, following someone on twitter doesn't mean you keep up to date on every little detail they post.

    Especially if the streamer happens not to delve too much into that themselves.

    for me, the news about 9.2 is a hype, a chance for a cool cinematic with Arthas
