    Everyone stock up on their hopium/copium last night for another day today? I made sure it was kept in the freezer for preservation.

    So it's as good as every other day besides Saturday and Sunday...

    This "today is the day" or "I have a good feeling" is a bit silly if we're honest. This thread is filled with that stuff since two months now. Months. To be precise, since the announcement of Dragonflight because some were dead set on Alpha releasing just days after the announcement because [reasons].

    No one whos been here for more than one expansion thought the alpha would release days after the announcement. It would have likely been June at the earliest, and early July is the time it has to be for it to make a 2022 release. Today is a great day.

    Man, can people stop being such lousy buzzkills?

    Yes, of course it's stupid to be like "Oh, today is the day" and people've been saying that for weeks, but can't people be allowed to be excited for something?

    Meh it doesn't bother me much. This place has gotten much more cynical since Shadowlands, but I suspect that will change once we get more news, like how fun this thread became during the 24 hours before and during the Dragonflight announcement.

    There's actually a VERY good chance of "something" happening today.

    I feel like next week is a safer bet, there has been very little rumblings this week and there usually are prior to the drop.

    Not according to the favorite streamer. Tis said that we may not get a blue post before Alpha this time. Also, new build last night on Wowdev which is number 5. I don't disagree with you (could be next week). However, it's Wednesday so writing off this week already is too early.

    But they are further along this time 11!!111!!

    I mean today can be the day or tomorrow or next Friday. Nobody knows. I'd rather be interested in the pattern of talent tree releases and then the upcoming Alpha. If Alpha releases today, why did they only feature three classes for the talent trees? Was there a point to it? Was it just coincidence? It would have made sense to release DK and Druid at the same time and then release Alpha, but getting the Priest talent trees and then nothing anymore seems a bit weird. Know what I mean?

    DF announcement - 1.5 months silence - 2 talent trees - 4 weeks silence - 1 talent tree

    It's quite a strange release schedule, especially since Ion said "Soon no tm", which gets even weirder with the 2022 release date. If the alpha releases today then I guess they only released trees that they considered to be finished or at least ready for the public to see, then I could see them making more posts with the other specs when they come out.

    Alternatively, they only released "some" trees to "tease us".

    It's possible, but definitely not the impression they gave during the announcement and the weeks following it. They made it seem like they wanted to pump out as many blogposts as possible to get the talents in people's hands early. Not to mention the Dracthyr post as well.

    But this is mostly irrelevant, I'd much rather have a datamineable alpha build than some blueposts.

    The one month gap between DK/Druid and Priest doesn't make any sense then, does it?

    Yeah, that we still lack any information about Evoker is mind-boggling. It just makes no sense.

    It's fairly obvious that something unexpected happened, they said alpha soon (not TM) over 2 months ago, it's apparent they had more issues which severely delayed things (again) and prompted the silence and lack of info. Regardless, alpha will be this week or next one latest.

    Had the thought might be that history repeated with Proletariat and the work they've been doing on Dragonflight was similar to the Project Titan redirects back in Warlords, where it stalled out a bit because they had to learn the tools Blizz uses to design the game.

    HOPEFULLY that's not a portent for the expansion's quality.

    Have you tried curiosum? I've heard it's much healthier.
    I've got plenty, but shipping across the atlantic is a pain.

    Why would that excitement be something to be protected? If you want reasonless happiness go drink some alcohol.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    Well with Blizzard's time zone we probably have 12 more hours for potential stuff to happen.

    You mean to tell me you're not constantly panicked? Have I been doing this wrong?
