They wouldn't have revealed Legion at GamesCom if it's in such an unfinished state that they won't have demos at BlizzCon.

Curious. Where are people getting the notion that Tirion is going to dieded?

Because of lack of Orc dicks, we decided to start from scratch to include them.

From the fact that one of the Paladin artifacts is Ashbringer.

Sure they would. WoW is bleeding like a stuck pig.

And how would an early reveal help if they have to admit that they're being even slower than with WoD, right after? They want us to think that they're faster, not that they're even slower and super desperate to boot.

To start the boarding call for the hype train.

But the hype would be lost, if there's no demo.

You just don't understand proper hype.

You say that, but given how well their PR has been the past couple years or so, it would be hasty to say they wouldn't. If you assume that they won't do something that is obviously stupid and short-sighted because it is obviously stupid and short-sighted, then you are potentially setting yourself up for disappointment.

The safest bet to make is to assume that they will screw up something, but not actively root for them to fail. That way, if they do something stupid, your caution is vindicated, but if they don't do something stupid, you are pleasantly surprised.

Doesn't it just mean that the beta will likely not start before BlizzCon?

Which is a pretty late start for a Beta if we're to see this expansion before almost Q2 next year. Sure we can be optimistic and say that maybe Legion will have a shorter Beta than previous expansions but Blizzard hasn't done much to make me optimistic.

On the other hand, they don't want you to be optimistic. Optimism leads to disappointment, young padawan.

I dunno, it doesn't really sound like something I ought to worry about too much. Besides, the longer it takes, the better it is for my studies.

Should we be scared this video will become reality (if Varian dies) apart from the poisoning part?

I sort of expected someone to marry Jaina and Thrall, Kael and Arthas sitting on the sidelines. With ... blue ... body parts. You know which. The ones Nazgrim was found of.

I want to believe in you Nazja, but WoD is a serious soul breaker, even to those who loved the company since childhood.

What I'm worried about is that it technically implies they're not sure if Legion will be far along enough by then to be used as a demo at BlizzCon. That would suggest beta is really far off, possibly getting delayed into next year.

The way I understood it, it will definitely be playable during BlizzCon, but they're not sure if beta will be available before the convention. I wouldn't really read too much into it and look for other interpretations.

To be honest, if taking a while means that it doesn't end up like WoD, then I hope it takes a while.

This is really jumping to conclusions.

It's very likely that the first playable tour of the world will be at Blizzcon. Certainly we'll have some new stuff to show and new stuff to talk about.


The devs are wording their responses like this deliberately. There's nothing to gain for them by announcing specifics. If they had instead said, "Beta is 100% without a doubt coming the very first day of BlizzCon 2015", people wouldn't believe them anyway.

Blizzard's word only means something to the players when they go back on it.
