    I saw this a possibility, but a very unlikely possibility. Maybe they waited for pre-order to be sure it can be done. So, unless raid will be moved to 2023, Season 4 must launch somewhere in August, if raid will launch this year deadline for pre-patch is November 1st.

    Of course date so close to Christmas is worrying, suits could push devs to bring expac 1-2 months faster. But I think Alpha require less work than BfA or SL, they won't have to make 15 iterations of Azerite or conduits, reward system is already set in stone.

    Guess the last two expacs draining subs is forcing their hand.

    Could also explain why dracthyr feel so limited (no armor, one class of animations, limited visage forms and no armor rigging work save a butt load of time).

    Well, fuck. They don't have enough time.

    Another rushjob for a trainwreck of an expansion. Three for three, fatal blow to the game.

    Given how we saw no raids or dungeons in the preview makes me really doubt this. Not to mention it'll overlap with Wrath release date.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    Tinkers will be the next Class confirmed.

    Lol. Beta should be starting tomorrow if they want to put out somewhat of a quality product.
    This will be WoD 2.0 with 0 content.

    Or you know don't spin everything as a negative?

    Time for what? Most Alpha/beta cycles last way to long. Also if it is three for three and another train wreck why are you still here?

    It's a raidlog expansion with old talents juggled around. Why does this need a 2023 release?

    Shadowlands was delayed for polish and still people hated it due to story, inherent nature of covenants, setting, etc. Nothing matters but the content of the expansion, and in the case of SL no amount of time would ever make people like it, except for a complete scrapping of the concept.

    Bad idea to release both WotLK Classic and Dragonflight that close to each other. They could have done WotLK in October-November and save Dragonflight for Q1 2023. This is going to be rushed and I really hope they will delay it even more than they did Shadowlands.

    Is there an overlap between the audiences?

    Bit concerning the talent system is in a proto-type stage with the expansion launching is 6 months or less.

  13. #58693
    Glad that in the end i was right about Dragonflight release before 2023

    Good to finally see the pre-order up and a possible release date. I'll be pre-ordering on payday!

    I'm willing to bet we're going to be seeing new talent trees real soon.

    Wrath wouldn’t reasonably take any dev time away it’s got to have a skeleton crew as all of wraths content is still in game and just needs some number changes.

    Dungeons and raids could be more problematic but they delay the raids post launch and retest them before they go live so even if it isn’t ready for launch they got extra time, though dungeons don’t.
