Well, judging by the wow-partial-1.MPQ downloaded in the directory wow-3.2.2-to-3.3.0-enUS-Win-patch, I would say that we will have to wait as blue post told, since every other patch have besides wow-partial-1.MPQ , already downloaded for 3.3, the files wow-partial-2.MPQ, wow-final.MPQ, and Updater.exe.
has anyone else been getting more lag then usual today?looked on the official forums but didnt really see anyone complaining about lag today.im at like 1k latency right now
I'm surprised no-ones noticed this angle yet :)He didn't say you have 1+ month to download the prepatch data."You have around 1+ month to download this file"This is in relation to downloading the wow-partial-1.MPQ file.Usually there's 2 other MPQs plus an installer to come for the full prepatch data.Plus after each content patch Blizzard do come back at some point and turn that prepatch data into a proper old-version-to-new-patch updater.IMHO he means "You have around a month before we pull the file wow-partial-1.MPQ off the background downloader and just make it a 3.2.2a-3.3 updater"It doesn't really say anything about the patch being released in a month once you think about it that :)
A couple other sites are running that patch 3.3 is due to be out next week. I said 12 days ago that this path could be released in one or 2 weeks and some people laughed at me, because I said that Blizzard wanted to launch the patch for Christmas. There are a lot of comercial reasons to do this, and that is why I thought so. If the server issues are worked out, the patch will go live on December 8th. Happy patch, Ho ho ho! ;-)
The PTR build deployed yesterday (10952) was marked as Release Candidate. That indicates a pretty imminent release -- almost certainly within the next two weeks (barring a major bug).
