A countdown to a release date!
Posted 11:23am 05/8/14
I haven't been this excited for an expansion since WotLK.

My guess, September for 6.0 live patch with October 14th release date. iirc, previous expansions have released the cinematic about 2 months before release.
Posted 11:54am 05/8/14
I doubt October, far too clustered of a month with a number of other games coming out. I know its an MMO and that shouldn't really matter, but BlizActi would still prefer less competition. I'd say a November date, maybe mid month.

And yeah, sharing your same excitement glynd. I haven't played WoW since Cataclysm (properly, at the very least), so eager to see the item squishing and revisiting Draenor.
Posted 12:34pm 05/8/14
Yeah, October was my first thought too, then I remember all the other stuff thats coming out in October, not sure they'd want to compete with that. So yeah, I reckon Nov too, but I'm gonna be different and say early November :p November 4th! BAM.
Posted 12:39pm 05/8/14
November 4th is Call of Duty's release, so I highly doubt they would want that appearing at the same time as WoW.
Posted 12:50pm 05/8/14
Damn. November 11th then, BAM.
Posted 01:53pm 05/8/14
Right after Blizzcon...
Posted 02:06pm 05/8/14
Damn. November 11th then, BAM.

isn't that like 2-3 days after BlizzCon? I doubt they'd release it so close to that.

My guess:
Release Warlords of Draenor in the 11th of October

BlizzCon in November shows:
-SC2: Legacy of the Void reveal
-Blood Elf model + future patches for WoD
-Warcraft 1 + 2 remake for Warcraft's 20th anniversary.
-Heroes of the Storm open beta
-Hearthstone new "adventure"
-Diablo 3 ... something. I can't imagine they'll announce an expansion or anything.
Posted 02:11pm 05/8/14
Hrmmmm. How about, November 18th? BAM?

Not sure they'd want to release it before Blizzcon, the month or so after an expansion lands would be pretty crazy for them I'd imagine, dunno if you'd want that on top of Blizzcon preparation shenanigans. Or maybe not, who knows, I give up!

Though, based on the state of the beta, I'm not sure it could be ready by October 11th
Posted 02:10pm 05/8/14
Hrmmmm. How about, November 18th? BAM?

No chance, same day as Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

and...Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4, LBP3 :P

In related matters, the latest beta datamining has yielded a "Tarren Mill vs Southshore" map.

Awesome. :)

That's awesome!

Clearly release date will be November 23. 10 year WoW anniversary.
Posted 02:51pm 05/8/14
Nah, it has to be a Tuesday (because for some reason, games/home video/music always get released on a Tuesday in the US)
Posted 03:10pm 05/8/14
I think early December
Posted 03:54pm 05/8/14
I think before the end of the year

Warcraft 1 + 2 remake for Warcraft's 20th anniversary.

My god if this was a real thing...

I'm going to be a son of a b**** and say it will be released 28th October. Blizzcon is on the 7th so that's plenty of time after.
Posted 12:15am 06/8/14
My god if this was a real thing...

They *did* say last Blizzcon that they had something pretty awesome planned for Warcraft's 20th birthday that would be relative to the RTS game that started it all...
Posted 07:54am 06/8/14
Finally got my characters where I want them after not playing for a year. Think I'm staying on horde and playing my rogue this expansion.
Posted 06:54am 07/8/14

Oh hey, 10th anniversary plans revealled:

Sounds like it *might* be fun. :)

Posted 07:29am 07/8/14
