    Tbh if anything for WoW is to come next week then it's the 9.2 release date. With 9.2 being close by I don't see them spilling the beans intentionally about 10.0. Better to wait a couple weeks and not have to maneuver around talking about the conclusion of SL, if it is in any way connected
    what possible cool new could it be?

    We have exciting new we lowered all the prices of our microtransactions to match more to our microsoft standards.

    how exciting if it ends up being something stupid like this.

    9.2 release date, date for the 10.0 reveal stream/youtube video. I could not care less if its anything else.

  3. #18883
    Depending on how long it's gonna take for 10.0 to be ready for release I could see them waiting quite a while, first for 9.2 to release, then the WF race and cinematics shown, then a few weeks after for the 10.0 announcement. Really depends on when 9.2 is coming and the status of 10.0.

    Ofc, everyone their taste, but I could look past the vibe if the gameplay was fun, sadly it wasn't for me. For me the diper gnomes.. the boring story, annoying daily quests and I really didnt like the area at all. We couldnt even enter mechagnome city without the instance. Nazjatar had other problems that were just as annoying, navigating was one and again.. the area was to small for what it was suppose to be.. both areas got old real fast for some reason. Nazjatar just had more to it, cus of lore, characters and it felt like a rushed experience for me. Mechagnomes had one big disaster and that was that they were not the mechagnomes people wanted.. so ye.

    I can't look back and say wow that was a fun time in 8.2, remember this was mids bfa, the backlash and dissappointment over Rastakahn and Sylvanas being vage as shit only just started, nothing to do with 8.2, but something I remember well. This was early on when people already started to hate the story.

    I don't expect any 10.0 info until after 9.2 is live.

    "I'll be sharing more next week" -> in regards to more frequent content. 10.0 announcement next week prolly.

    Like a particular Dwarf would probably say, the rumblings are here.

    It is time.

    That quote indeed does generate some rumblings. I wonder if it's just an announcement of an announcement or something of actual substance.

    They should reveal the next expansion already, it's not the Second Coming of Christ or anything like that. Reveal the name and the theme and show a trailer already so that we can move on.
    The illustrious Alliance of Stormwind is driven by tradition, nobility, and faith. They are staunch defenders of justice and duty who protect the realm of Azeroth against any aggressors, including the savage Horde. In a time when chaos and uncertainty reign, the Alliance remains steadfast in its determination to illuminate the darkest corners of the world and preserve order in Azeroth.

    At this point even an announcement of an announcement is something I'd eagerly gobble up rather than the pitiful silence and lack of any hype or relevance.

    My guess is it will just be an announcement talking about when they're going to give updates about the status of their different titles. Maybe some more shake ups and moving people around within Blizzard.

    I don't see why he would specifically be releasing the dates on anything with WoW.

  11. #18891
    I am still going to say that Blizzard will only reveal 10.0 properly once Zovaal is available to be defeated, or better yet once the world first race has ended.
    This is Blizzards only real chance to really tie the end of an expansion directly to the announcement of a new one, and I think it would be really neat if we actually got something cool from it.

    There isnt really a good reason that I can think of why Blizzard should reveal 10.0 before 9.2 is "done" other than the general sense that we need more info. If Blizzard made an announcement that the world first race will mark the beginning of the 10.0 reveals then I think they could really bring some hype into the game overall.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Not before 9.2 goes live. Too early to reveal new expansion.

    It think it's more likely next week will be an announcement for an announcement; maybe a roadmap for when each game will get their announcements meant for Blizzconline.

    Sounds good, doesn't work. People would just be toxic to guilds that stream the race "finish it already we don't care about this shit we want 10.0 announcement" and imagine if the very top guilds in the race with the most chance just started to protest and take a break from the race...

    If that is the only thing then waiting a bit longer doesn't hurt any one. For people to come back.. it needs a lot more then just what you said.

    I am in no rush.. I stopped playing Shadowlands and moved on to other games in the meantime. Wow is really boring at this point and a new theme, but same shit isn't gonna bring anyone back.

    Probably stuff across the different franchise. For WoW it being the 9.2 release date (seeing how M+ testing started, which was the final thing). And maybe some statement about more consistent future content. Don't expect it to have anything for next expac except maybe "More info about the future of WoW soon"

    Definitely this. They were set to make announcements around late-Jan, and February. They didn't say how but they confirmed the cancellation of Blizzcon and a 'reimagining' of their presentations.

    Yea seems realistic, I don't expect any 10.0 either, but I couldn't come up with anything that would excite me. New merchandise, mythic + challenge or a new type of championship are all really lame and not exciting. Hopefully they surprise us with something interesting.

    Omg Ybarra is totally gonna change things
    That announcement is 100% unique and not word for word what we hear
    Every
    Single
    Time
