Just after the New Years Holiday.
Nevermind they just fixed... Lol
Chances are it'll be after the new year. More than likely around February after 7.3.5 goes live. Beta will likely start by May or June with a release somewhere around Blizzcon next year (September to November) which falls in with most expansion releases. With Blizzard doing better this expansion with releases, possible things could happen sooner but with most of the staff being out for the holidays, January would be too optimistic for alpha, especially when 7.3.5 is still on the PTR. Different teams may be handling 7.3.5 and alpha, but still.
7.3.5 should be released what, roughly 3 months from now? I'm guessing a few weeks after that.
First 10 days of Jan we will see Alpha, we will see beta a month after .5 is released in feb
nah i think 7.3.5 will be out sooner i wanna say early january and beta around march or so
7.3.5 is more likely in Jan than Feb. There are updates for Call of the Scarab, so I assume we'll see the patch right around then.
I say shortly after bliz gets back from the holidays. Likely mid to late January.
What happened to that statement they made around the end of Mists beginning of WoD about getting more efficient at xpac releases and that they had teams working on stuff 1-3 expansions ahead of time so they could push things out faster. I mean realistically they have no reason to keep to what is "usually the release date" because a faster release would mean a faster payout. I'm probably likely being overly optimistic but I hope the blip of 8.0 pre blizzcon was the start of in house/ closed alpha testing and this coding means alpha is close to public testing and beta is not actually months like near May-June away but must sooner.
Also i think for this xpac, fewer people will get invited to beta. Legion got many, since there were tons of changes, like revamped classes-specs, artifact weapon ect, and they needed tons of data. Now the only extra things are plunder islands, and that moba feeling stuff (build army, siege castle whatever it was named). Anything almost the same, new zones, new quets ect.
I just want pre-order this month for that sweet 110 boost and 7.3.5 prob around end of January with Expansion launch before July
hope for pre order toand if Blizzard want launch BfA soon beta test must start in january7.3.5 end january mid february 8.0 pre extention in end of may BfA launch between june - august
Hope we'll have a playable Alpha as a Christmas gift from Blizzard!
Might be helpful to say, gee idk, what a CDN is and it what stands for.
If they actually want to use the assets within 7.3.5 for the call of the scarab event, its needs to be done for a certain deadline. Aka drop patch 7.3.5 on January 30th or later, then you have to wait a whole year. Drop it in the middle of the event and you’ll have people bemoaning that their effort put into the event on the 21st to before realm restart on the 23rd was wasted.So that puts 7.3.5 release date on the 9th or 16th. And since there is no “raid” (how Nighthold came out a week after 7.1.5) associated with the patch then they can likely use the latter date to give themselves some breathing room.Tl;dr. 7.3.5 is coming the 9th or 16th of January.
