    As I already said to you before: It's not in the pre-order announcement page.

    AKA the big flashy thing that people are actually going to look at.

    The thing people are going to be looking at is the actual store page, not a news article telling you that you can preorder. Over the next few months, the store page is gonna get more traffic than a random news article.

    Even so, why shift the goal posts from "Oh, they are not showing the Dracthyr!" to "Oh, they are not showing the Dracthyr on this very specific page I want them to be shown on!"

    Why do you think that, when we had a major global event called pandemic that screwed with SL? Did short WoD patch cycle carried on?

    I didn't shift goal posts, because the only page I was looking at was the announcement page. You're the one who brought up the store page. Also, I wasn't even the first person to mention it, that was Mutineer.

    I mean if it were a slow year, it would be followed by 2023 with D4

    The pandemic wasn't the only thing that screwed with SL. I think you're ignoring the thing that likely had much more impact, the firing and re-shuffling of numerous people in Blizzard due to all the harassment, as well as all the striking that was done.

    Yes, and that too has passed. MS soon takes over, working environment is/will improve. So again, why only 3 raids in DF?

    I think 3 10+ boss raid tiers per expansion is a good amount. But I wish tiers had a bit more to do than a random collectothon sandbox zone for each tier.

    So the new dragon mount is gorgeous but . . . did they keep the pine cone tail???

    Honestly I'd love it if we had more but smaller raids. Less filler bosses. It is a bit of a challenge since if BiS is very much split between the raids you may get people not showing up for one raid and then coming for the other but I prefer tiers with multiple raids

    Probably should of been, tbh.

    Shorter TBCC cadence, OW2 with no solo mode, now a possibly rushed DF launch. Definitely feels like Activision is trying to push things through their pipeline before the sale is complete. I don't really care as much about the aforementioned titles but it does make be very nervous about the future of D4.

    What's a filler boss?

    I mean I am lore centric so I find that some bosses are just added to pad the count? They don't really help tell the story of the raid much. E.g. think Jadefire Masters in Dazar'alor.

    I mean it's an HD pine cone but . . .
    I guess the original model is so distinctive they wanted to stay true to it which I can respect. Still think its weird that they effectively have a club for a tail.

  16. #58656
    People didn't like their club tails? I always thought it made them a bit more unique.

    Well I won't say people. I'll say I did not like them. At least now they look more like pine cones instead of pineapples.

    Pretty sure they're switching them to flight specific with the updates.




    So it's probably just the green that does that now, which is also why it's more nature-y.

    I'd now hope it's coming soon. If it's November, don't we want at least 5 months of Alpha/Beta?
