    Just feels weird for it to even be needed unless something went off schedule though.

    Yeah, could be, after all the build is not being modified in minutes before pushing it to the server I guess, right? So if they had it ready for sometime waiting to be deployed, then yup, that seems to be needless. But who knows

    In regards to the late wowdev build, I guess they wanted to get some fixes in that popped up in the last few days, having done that last night can mean the unencrypted build will hit pretty early (though that might also be my wishful thinking).

    I mean this is pretty much THE idle speculation thread of the forum

    Do we know anything about Blizzard's policy with crunch?

    For recent times, not really. I'm guessing it's not recommended/asked to do so but employees can probably choose to do so if they want to (which can be problematic I know, don't shit up the thread please). Can't imagine they need a ton of people for a build deploy, though. After so many years I'd hope it is mostly automated after turnip man pushes the button.

    Who knows, laws and contracts with clear time terms are often written to end not by midnight but by 6 in the morning.

    It's also possible that the NDA is lifted once the invites go out.

    If people have played a very secret closed alpha (which is pretty much a certain now), then they would want to release some new videos about it all. T&E have said they're releasing two videos today. It's likely they have a cut off time, maybe 9am local time for Blizz when shit starts to come out.

    I was going to post the screencap too from majora's but I think posting a meme would be against the rules/infraction worthy? I don't know haha.
    But yeah, a big piñata moon filled with dragonflight eye candy!

    Today is the day! Good morning! Copium is settling in nicely. Pray it doesn’t bubble.

    Imagine if all of this is just the community getting all hyped up over rumours which then turn out to be false. I doubt it, but you never know haha.

    Anyway, final-final wish-list for today from me:

    • A good look at the Dracthyr Visage form and the Evoker's abilities.
    • New music, especially ambient material that will play in the background in the new zones.
    • New character customization for Allied Races.
    • New models for NPCs and creatures, mounts, etc.
    • A good look at the Dragon Isles.
    • The new Profession Specializations.
    • Confirmation of more character slots and that the character list in the login screen is expanded to 13 to cover the new class.
