    But there not cutting or reusing content baring art In 9.1 and art is likely already always a head so reusing some won’t recoup lost time.

    If they do cut 9.3/make 9.2 smaller then that would help ya as it’s a full tiers worth of code and design they can throw at a new expan but that’s get to be seen.

    They are adding those special sockets to SoD gear, which aren't actually sockets... but instead work off a convoluted shard system they are still working at. Because that's exactly what SL needs, moar systemz ftw.

That's a ridiculous notion and goes right along with the idea that the game is "work." If it's not 'play' then you're doing it wrong. Sadly this is a concept that the devs seem to have lost sight of in their quest to keep anyone and everyone busy.

I figured this timeline would also serve as a visual aid. That as you can see the main part where they got hit with the disruption from the pandemic was during their 5.2 patch and some into their 5.4 patch. For 5.5 those days include up to the release date for Endwalker.

    Also the devs admit that their workflow was affected by the pandemic and they apologized to the players for the delays.

    After the pandemic patch though they still managed to drop there normal 2 mini patches to lead up to the .3 patch and both .3 .4 an .5 cadence is similar to the past expansions and were about 4 months from each other.

    Not to mention its not like Blizzard, they haven't bailed out on the expansion now that .5 is out, 3 minor patches to build up to Endwalker, with 2 more event patches and a fan service patch til Endwalker in Nov.

    Meanwhile in that same Window as listed about Blizzard is struggling to get out 1 patch..
