    Shadowland Alpha was Mid april, released mid november
    If DF releases mid December (for christmas most likely), we already have 1 less month of alpha IF it was released right now ...

    But I agree there are ess systems to iterate on...

    I doubt it. For one, even the official store is still run by a third party vendor. It doesn't ask or require your battle.net account info when you buy (at least as far as I went in the process - I didn't actually purchase) for them to know you've ordered it. Second, they fact the included all the upgrade/credit info on this announcement seems to indicate otherwise. Third, it's never worked that way before, although you also could get through other vendors before and -- at least at the moment -- that doesn't seem to be the case this year.

    On the store it says...

    World of Warcraft® Dragonflight Epic Edition Game Key

    Use this digital key to unlock the Epic Edition of Dragonflight
    I doubt they'd let players wait AFTER the expansion has released to actually give you the game. The goodies is understandable ofc.

    Depending on where you get it, normally the key comes to you right away. I believe in amazon there’s a digital purchases tab that has your key there. Normally when you can go to your account and select “upgrade” and enter the key whenever so your account is flagged to have this version when it opens up. I haven’t used a collectors edition in a very long time so idk how this works now.

    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.

    Ohhhh my god that is so slimy HAHAHA. So if you buy the most expensive package you either have to

    A. Wait for the physical copy to reach your door to enter your key to play

    Or

    B. Pay for either a base edition or the same edition you bought in order to have these things right away and they will so graciously “refund” you by locking that money in battle.net balance.

    Option B effectively doubles their sales for those who want it right away.

    I paraphrased your options above

    Been this way since Blizz started doing digital expac purchases. Not sure why people are surprised.

    This is pretty common for collector editions, some will email you codes but many won’t and you need to wait for the box which might not always come on launch day.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Damn, that's lame. When I purchased the physical CE of Endwalker I got my digital code immediately. If I had refunded the CE they would've taken back whatever access I had been given by the digital code.

    Now I'm not trying to compare but come on.

    But I must mention again, this is a much cheaper CE aswell.

    Way, way too many idiots in this thread screaming about rushed, as though they ONLY started working on it the second the announced it.
    If I don't respond to something you tagged me in, assume one of two things.
    1) Your post was too stupid to acknowledge, or
    2) Your post is cringe and not worth replying to.

    Alternatively, if it happens a lot I probably have you blocked due to one of the above things. Thank you.

  11. #271
    I am very surprised. I expect a rushed launch or an apology and refunds offered when it gets pushed to 2023.

  12. #272
    Everyone is upset its "rushed" with zero evidence to that, yet no one bats an eye at the fact they're raising the price $10 and giving less than any other expansion ever?

    That is referring to the digital edition, not the physical CE.

    If you buy the physical CE, you dont get the game code until the physical box arrives and you add it to your account. You don't get a digital version so you can play until the box arrives.

    Edit: sorry, I see people already clarified before I replied. Unfortunately, Blizzard CEs have always worked this way. Most people buy a digital key in the meantime and then just refund it for credit when the CE arrives so they can still play at launch.

    I have always bought collector's edition boxes, so once again they will make me wait for the digital goodies, what a backwards company...after nearly 2 decades, they still haven't fixed that issue...n they never gave me my tbc ce battlepet either..mofos..

    Over 6 months probably, so no reason at all for me to buy xpac now. Thx blizz!
    Probably longer, as game won't be rdy, bobby just wants big paycheck before microsoft yanks blizzard from him...

    I mean even if beta started tomorrow it would be rushed for most expansions. We still have another patch in sl with that weird s4 thing.

    I have to assume they are cutting corners hard. This might explain why dragon flight is launching with the least amount of dungeons and relying on retreads. I wouldn't really be shocked if like wrath they bring in an old raid tier to pad out the content...

    I will wait to see beta but unless they just abandoned shadowlands I can't see how they could be on schedule.

    Oh, I would def do option B, get the epic ed now n ce box later, if i'd get a Diablo 4 ce box for it laters, otherwise no deal!

    I honestly thought they'd reveal an actual expansion before the pre-orders come out, this is basically just a large patch.

    I really don't understand how anyone would throw their money at this ahead of time, this looks even more bare-bones than WoD did but at least WoD had the premise of an interesting story going forward, after their worst 2 expansions, instead of deciding to go the legion route they pretty much did the WoD skip straight into BFA lol, this isn't even disappointing anymore it's just pathetic.

    Unless season 4 gets announced that it will start before end July, then no chance of Dragonflight being ready this year, however it is important to note that they only developing 4 new dungeons compared to 8 at the start of most expansions. The other 4 will be from previous expansions. So in some ways less initial content but they are redoing the UI and a new class.
