    You can't go to Outland in the pre-patch, so that's not it.

    This timeline doesn't make sense. Blizzard stated they are giving people time to level their blood elves and draeneis so they can play with their mates in Outland. 2 or 3 weeks does not seem like enough time IMO, even with the XP nerfs.

    SL is going to be in really rough shape by then.

    9.1 is going to have to be the best patch in WoW history or this expac is straight up doomed with this timetable
    why would that rule out 9.1 coming out in july/august?

    Is it cause you still think blizzard does not release classic+retail content at the same time?

    Yeah no, while that would be great, thats not fucking accurate.


    Shadowlands raid releasing 1 week before naxramas...

    nah, 2 weeks is easily enough.
    you can do it in 1-2 weeks NOW, but in TBC it greatly reduces the time to level.

    Not if you have a life. It took Jokerd 79 hours to ding 60. Even if Blizzard nerf the XP by 20% that would be roughly 63 hours or about 4 and a half hours a day over 2 weeks for him to get to 60 (although you can get to Outland at 58). Expecting the average player to do that? Not happening.

    Edit: that was world first, I know about someone doing it in 2 days.

    Because TBC was the most bang for my buck with raiding. I loved everyone of those raids and I'm guilded with a guild on a classic server with people I enjoy raiding with. Its not like I'm investing anymore money into the classic game than I am in retail. I find the retail game is pure garbage atm anyway (imo), so why not?

    It is not fake, it is real, it was up and then taken down.

    --------

    Date doesn´t have to mean anything tho. I also don´t see it.

    This is how the world is nowadays sadly. You can literally show somebody factual evidence of something, but if it doesnt fit what THEY want to hear, its fake to them.

    Makes you wonder just how old most people in this thread are? Not even 25? Can't accept reality?

    Yikes.

    No way the prepatch will be less than 3 weeks.
    "Return to the outland" is not prepatch. Obviously it's release. Prepatch will be three weeks. If you're not hardcore enough for that, too bad for you, TBC is not for noobs, you gotta work your way.

    Your whole post was a mess with incoherent rambling, was bit hard to understand what you were trying to say
    But no, 9.1 isn't coming in july, no there isn't a single reason to delay, no, there won't be a 4-5 week gap and again, no, they won't delay tbc for an unforeseeable future.
    Really, nothing in the post i quoted is right lol.

    Wow. Almost sure this is a bait because eveything said was pure bullshit. Poe's law striking again.

    A two week pre-patch makes the whole "time to level up your BE or Draenei" thing a lie and a damned lie at that. Also are they just not doing the launch event? That's one of the things I was most looking forward to doing.

    Everyone who worth his salt leveled in Classic in under a week. You've got 30% nerfed XP reqs and 3 weeks. That's more than enough.

    I get that makes a spergy sort of sense, but it's not how a profit seeking concern would operate this game. What has happened at any point in Classic or the last 15 years of Blizzard development to make you think they take that kind of hard line inside the building?

    Rushers did. Normal players didn't.

    Why does everyone think Draenei and Blood Elves are dropping with the pre-patch? I don't remember that happening with the original BC pre-patch.

    I remember High Lord Krull moving from city to city and destroying everyone for hours! Couldn't respawn because he'd kill you. Blizz would have to reset the servers to get him to go away. He wrecked Stormwind and Booty Bay on Llane so badly that I just stood there in ghost form and watched. We had no organized raiders to speak of at the time (or very few) and any attempts by normal players were hilariously bad.

    They probably will .. it's just mobs spawning out of the portal with 1 quest and kruul attacking some zones.

    Time to level the new races is relative .. as some will take 1 weeks and others 6 months.
    4-5 weeks is more than reasonable, but yeah I don't expect launch to happen June 1st, altough they still have time to announce a pre-patch as soon as next week and then roll it for just 3 weeks.

    Because Blizzard announced that during the virtual Blizzcon in February. It wasn't a thing back in 2007, but this time they want to give players the option to pre-level their Blood Elf and Draenei characters so they can play with their friends at TBC launch.

    Yep, it is sad.


    -----------------------------

    Now that they made the deluxe stuff official, I start to believe that June 1st will be the pre patch. That would make sense.
