    There's no need to be spiteful, let people be as hyped as they'd like - it's not hurting anyone

    Using that word says a lot about who you are. Also, I’m not generating “artificial hype”. Why are my opinions bothering you? You disagree, great! Never have I said, “You better buy Dragonflight. It’s going to be great, GUARANTEED!” For the record, I still haven’t pre-ordered it.

    Don’t try to ruin the HYPE in this thread when people have been waiting for 3 months to get info out of Blizzard.

    "How dare people be hyped in the hype thread!"

    Anyway, is it actually confirmed in any way that there's alpha today or is it still just (hopeful) speculation? I've been a bit out of the loop lately.

    I just can’t imagine hating something, yet putting more time and energy into worrying about it than not. If I hated WoW, or it’s current state, this is NOT the place I would be hanging out.

    I'm enjoying his posts far more than any naysayers, pessimists or outright toxic persons ones.

    He managed to generate hype for me, so it's great he is here. If you don't like him, just put him on ignore ffs.

    Not confirmed officially, but since there's a lot of top streamers activity invovled around this topic, leaked screenshots of closed alpha that's certainly under NDA, official ad of DF in german and historical record shows it's Thursday for alpha deployment, I'd consider it a safe bet if my pocket-money was at the stake

    I love optimistic or hype-generating posts so much more than naysayers or pessimists or "realists" or whatever word it is we use for those nowadays. <3

    It's always a good idea to check if a random negative post from a random person is just a random accident or a pattern. Yep, it's a pattern in your case. You can let others have fun by closing this site now, bye.

    I think it’s fine and healthy to have people debate/counter any information that comes out with a different perspective. Being narrow minded can cause a lot of anger, anxiety, and false perception toward Blizzard if things turn bad (Shadowlands). However, there’s a smart way of doing this. Coming into this thread (like some others have done) and just bashing the game before it’s even in Alpha is mind-blowing to me.

    I agree with you here, 100%. ^_^

    The question is, its genuine „hype“.

    Or a agenda?

    We don't have more than four months left because the pre-patch needs to hit in 4 months or less. And classes need to be ready by then.

It's equally probable that they target these 5 classes first. It might be 2 classes each week and it would still take a month. Wouldn't that make sense to narrow down the available content to receive as specific data as possible in return?
    What exactly is the purpose of not testing classes that are ready?

    Focus feedback? That's not going to happen, someone who plays hunter, priest, paladin, will not give you feedback on shaman, druid, mage if those are the classes available. A die-hard arms warrior will not give you feedback on fury. You virtually just stop any feedback at all on focused channels. If there is any datamineable content for a class present, then you'd run into severe speculation cluttering all forums - harming the actual feedback.

    In the past devs usually cycled through their assigned classes, work on feedback (maybe), and make changes. Then swap to another class and do something with the feedback. The thing is, why delay classes that are ready to generate feedback for this? If changes are planned, the classes are not ready. If no changes are planned until feedback, the classes are ready.

    There is only one reason for not all classes being present: They're not ready. That means we have at most 4 months for class and talent testing. Unless they changed something, we also know that ~1 month before pre-patch goes live class changes stopped (Ion even talked about that in this interview: https://www.mmo-champion.com/content...le-for-Azeroth). So while we have 5 months until the end of the year, you can effectively substract 2 weeks of pre-patch and 1 month of no more changes. That's 3.5 months of testing and feedback. Releasing classes over the course of a month is, well, pretty bad.

    I don’t think we should judge the entire expansion and it’s development on what goes “live” with Alpha today. They “could” be very far in development and simply showcase a few classes at a time for accurate testing.

    If the goal is to test talent trees in their entirety, it’s better to have Alpha testers limited to only a few classes versus spreading them out across ALL classes. To Nyel’s point, yes, we still have pre-patch before launch and we have to be careful around holiday release (if it is coming before the end of 2022).

    Honestly, it would be a sign of “good faith” if Blizzard released the remaining talent trees either with Alpha launch, or within the next few weeks, if they plan NOT to test all classes on Alpha immediately. Even if they don’t, I still don’t think it’s a means for concern.

    On the other-hand, we are approaching crunch time in terms of a release date. Personally, if they can’t get everything they need done in time, it should be delayed 100%. Of course, again, the real question we need to ask to answer ALL of my above questions is: How far into development are they at this point in the cycle?
