    After reading some of the feedback I'm glad they don't listen. Enjoy your soda and popcorn tho.

    That's the best scenario. I'm thinking 12 months. Hope to be wrong.

    First rerun an offer of a 6 month sub with special needs mount a couple of times, other than that you are spot on.
    Ukraine’s government has officially registered the Moskva cruiser wreck on the Black Sea bottom as a national underwater cultural heritage site.

    Even the worst expansion I've played I put in enough time to justify the cost of a deluxe edition /shrug
    People should either play or not and keep quiet. All of these people raging over a game they don't play think they're "passionate players who want the game to be good" but they should really just move on.

    Out of curiosity, what would be required to break the encryption on this build?

    Given to how they are allegedly open to feedback, I'd say they'll take a little longer to release this time around. And so didn't wanna risk announcing it for this year just yet (even if they are planning to), so I'd say it will come early next year.

    A 4chan leak who came in March ( and who foretold Drakthyr etc ) said it was slated for Q1 2023

    Wanna point out to people, in a recent interview Ion says this expansion has been in the works for a long time, and word from multiple artists and devs backs this up, so hell this may have been in the works since bfa or even before that, and his follow up was "dragonflight is further along then normal, we are going to try and get alpha out very soon"


    so dragonflight might not be THAT far out.

    100% not this year, no fucking way lol, 8 months? no way, but early next year? could totally see it, maybe even prepatch before that, with beta for sure this year.

    It is not unlikely that it will launch in late November/December this year. Why? Like you said, it has been in development for a while now. We are also not seeing any huge systems like Covenants, Azerite Gear, Soul Binds, etc. That will require extensive testing. We will see an overhaul on a few systems that are already in game. Ion has stated that they want to push out the new talent system ASAP to give sites like WoWHead time to create calculators for players. I'm hopeful that it will launch this year, because unless they have some really cool stuff in the pre-order/9.2.5 patch (Expanding class/race combos, a new allied race), I cannot foresee 9.2 content lasting the rest of the year without a lot of backlash.

    Technically speaking (names aside), as soon as players are testing it - it is Beta.

    Due to COVID-19, Germany is running out of sausages and cheese.
    The government considers this to be the Wurst Käse scenario

    Rubbish. Technically speaking, you're wrong.

    Alpha tends to only last one to two months. Closer to two, but not always.

    Shadowlands Alpha invites were going out early April. Beta started July.
    BFA Alpha Feb, beta April.
    Legion had a really long Alpha, I'll give you that one. It also had a really short beta period to compensate.
    Warlords alpha April. Beta June.

    We are well within seeing the expansion this year. It's also possible we don't. But the timelines we have previously seen certainly don't discount it.

    No chance it's coming out this year. They would never release Wrath Classic and Dragonflight around the same time. The classic / retail model is all about retaining subscriptions, which is done by separating releases.

    I'm sorry you aren't familiar with the software development process, but I can't do anything about that except say that the distinction between Alpha and Beta is clear.

    Anyway - my point is, beta may be sooner than people think even if the build is titled 'alpha'.

    Alpha Testing is a type of software testing performed to identify bugs before releasing the product to real users or to the public. Alpha Testing is one of the user acceptance testing. Beta Testing is performed by real users of the software application in a real environment.

    You are dreaming if you think the game will ship this year.
    They better not cause ppl will think about release being too early game not finished ect... (which ll be true).

    If they dont do extensive alpha and beta iteration based on ACTUAL community (and not this bs council), then you will know we ll go for a SL 2.0.
    There ll be a lot of work, cause class need tending (extensive) with those new talents trees, and a lot of game mecanics need rework.


    So don't hope for a release this year, for us like for them.

    It's a very restricted, closed Beta.

    They have been on alpha since some month already.
