But, but I though tthat if it was on teh interwebs, which is a series of tubes btw, it meant that it was for reals?
Unless its on the World of Warcraft site, or a blue post on the forums. There is no need to get worked up, or hoping its true. It will eventually be ready, just wait.
Point 1 - Wowhead sources confirm it will NOT start Tuesday. Am I the only one reading into that it may already HAVE started?... ;)Point 2 - Fake aside, an Alpha should start right about now really. I will continue to maintain that the development of Cataclysm probably will take less time than either TBC or WOTLK. Especially less than WOTLK (which took 217 days from Alpha to release). Thing is, even though they are reworking all of Azeroth... we're not receiving a new tier of talents, just 5 additional levels, etc, etc. Allowing Blizzard to focus more on creating content than on spending too much time on balancing. Additionally, no new class is being introduced. So, even less time spent on balancing. All in all, it should be a fairly quick expansion.So, I'm keeping with the prediction on my Twitter account - Cataclysm on June 13th 2010.
@Kharay1977Yes, they are not adding a new tier of talents. They are also not adding a new class. Instead they are REDESIGNING EVERY talent tree. I personally think that will be more work then creating just 1 new tier.They are also completely redesigning stats on gear, and adding loads of new features. Plus they will add loads of Phased quests, which will take more time to make then the normal quests that were in BC. I don't think this expansion will take much longer then the other two, but it won't be quicker either.Btw, sorry if my english sucks, i'm working on it but it is not my birth language.
Damn..well it will start sometime in the future anyway :)
WoW.com says the alpha is real...Wowhead says the alpha is fake...Guess I'll have to wait for MMO-Champion to come forward and have the final say in this dispute.
This sets back the supposed Cataclysm release date.
I don't think they've ever printed an Alpha copy of the game on a disk before.
Oh well, im sure it will come "soon"
