I actually would really like it if they used those models for real weapons.

Looks like the top one actually did get used as a real weapon. Well, a real low-level one, but still. Looks nice.

Bumpa Bumpa, bumpda di boo, it's another release speculation time for me and you.

Yeah, seriously a german Fansite is already speculating that the MoP Beta will begin in December to compete with ToR. Which is bullcrap.

So here are the numbers of the past again this time also with the Cata numbers.

The Burning Crusade:

Beta Start: 12. Oktober 2006
Release Date: 16. January 2007

Total Time: 96 days

Wrath of the Lich King:

Beta Start: 17. July 2008
Release Date: 13. November 2008

Total Time: 119 days

Cataclysm:

Beta Start: 30. June 2010
Release Date: 7 December 2010

Total Time: 160 days

So the next Beta will last at least 3 months and not more then 5 months.
August/September is currently a quite realistic release date, since Blizzard said they didn't want to have another one year gap between the last Big Content patch (Rubin Sanctum doesn't really count) and the new addon.

Yeah, the annual pass and 4.3 I think are Blizzard's "anti-ToR protection policy".

I don't think that Pandaland is as much work as Wrath or Cataclysm so I would also say around 3.5 months.

I'd say it's probably somewhere between TBC and Wrath. But it is further along than Wrath was when it was announced.

As for TOR protection, it kind of makes sense. Personally I'll just play both since they offer different experiences. IMO.

Actually, I could see that happening. Maybe it's too early to release it... I mean, it would conflict with D3 and 4.3... but it's still a good date, and a great move to make players stay for a secure beta, had they bough the pass.

Of course, the beta would start with 1-2 zones only.

Bumba Bumby, bumba ti boo, it seems the beta is right in front of me and you.

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/4639551

If Boub is right it, the Beta could start this week or next.

So, according to this we can calculate that MoP will be released most likely between 27. June - 7. September. (Yeah, a bit of crack dating, but expansions releases were tradionally on Tuesdays or Thursdays.)

I think the betas have been starting sooner after expansion announcements.

It seems like they have quite a bit done this time around, so it's possible they'll get it out by summertime.

I really hope so too.

But I expected August for MoP and that never happened.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

It'll be interesting. I wonder what Blizzard plans to do with WildStar, ESO, and EQN.

WoD is already in a late alpha build, considering two zones and a dungeon are playable at blizzcon. And they have assets for all but two of the zones already.

I'm guessing a beta release come January, with a live release around March or April.

If it's not March, it'll be June. (and if it's not June, it'll be September.)

Blizzard will push this at the end of a quarter. It allows them to report to the shareholders about first-week sales, and in the next quarter lets them report about subscriber level increases. Having guaranteed positive outcomes to report at two successive shareholder meetings is better than pushing it at the start of the quarter and maybe only getting one positive meeting.

All that said, I'm really betting on June. A summer release is awkward sales-wise, but no one wants to stay in Siege for a year.

One of the devs was being interviewed by Mrs. Metzen and the Dorito Pope and he said it was on target for next year but... I dunno. I don't think it will be. I'm thinking an early 2015 release. A lot of the zones this year weren't finished and they didn't show them off: they've got the frostwolf zone and the shadowmoon zone roughly playable but that's about it. Everything else is rather piecemeal.

A year without a patch would not be appreciated by the players I think.
