Yeah, I suppose. I know it's this way for everyone without beta, but it's just annoying seeing some people go for/getting a second beta key to sell or to give to some random guildie, or sometimes even the third, whereas a lot of people have yet to get even their first.

Blizzard effectively wants to have its cake and eat it too by pretending to have this groundbreaking war in a faction capital while at the same time being completely unwilling to portray logical consequences of such an event.

Faction war can be done well, but Blizzard has half assed it and it has predictably flopped as a result.

Might as well believe in something.

Haven't got anything better to do anyway.

You'd be surprised how stupid people are, there was people who expected the Beta to be a month after announcement. Not to mention others who still believe it's only going to be 3 months.

So my server-mates are not the only ones.
Okaaay....
Well, it'll probably just be another blog post or something. Or an update to the WoD site.

Probably will be, but better safe than sorry, heh.

I'm not alone at this CRZ'd Dark Portal either, though that's not to say there's a huge crowd. There's about five of us in all at the moment.

Saw a picture on the BlizzardCS post of their own server though and it looks utterly mobbed.

We'll see in about half an hour or so.

edit: Let's see if this works:


EU server Antonidas, apparently.

Unless there's something I'm missing I'm a little surprised they're not using Sunreavers given how they've built them up in MoP as the Horde's counterpart to the Kirin Tor.
Just a little nod to symbolise that the Sunreavers are still a thing after MoP would be quite cool.

Even then I'm a bit surprised by this.

Eh, 5.2 did a good enough job of showing us the Sunreavers are still around. I'd rather they do the logical thing and show Rommath's magisters as more prominent than them.

As excited as i am for WoD i hope this announcement ties with Comic Con and ends up being either the upcoming book or comic.

They're not as iconic to Draenor as Khadgar, and they need to include Dalaran too. It's why I don't like people dismissing neutral complaints as just Alliance whiners.

The Sunreavers probably will show in a minor role by having a person in it do something potentially but i expect when it comes to Blood Elves for the focus to be placed on the Blood Knights. I do hope The Reliquary have some presence though i still have a feeling High Examiner Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher has bad intentions in searching for powerful artifacts and getting the chance to go to a alternate Draenor might be to sweet for him to pass.

Hopefully.

I'm a bit optimistic (remember that the WotLK pre-event started with little fanfare) but I'm expecting nothing beyond another Facebook post.

edit: 10 people on my server here now.

There are ways to keep things hidden, though.

And like I said, WotLK's came out of nowhere until suddenly plagued crates appeared in Booty Bay. Though to be fair, the datamining community was still kind of in its infancy then.

That's fine too. I'm just of the opinion its a bit of a waste to have the Blood Elves which have really come into their own be sidelined by the Kirin Tor.

To me the biggest piece of evidence that it's not an in-game thing is that BlizzardCS is hyping it. If it were in game, don't you think they'd use their World of Warcraft facebook/twitter accounts?

Blizzard disappointing people with Warlords of Draenor stuff and hype... that's UNHEARD OF!

The event will be likely another 4 months from now and the expansion will hit sometime in the late November/December mark, as the scrying has foretold.
