Scratch what I said.I think it will come out 12/7 just for the whole thing about arena's. I didn't see that. All I seen was the 12.7% lol.
I'm still doubtful. If 4.0.1 is really next week, like we are believing - then I have no idea how they are going to stretch out that in-game event for 2 months :/ I'm bored and tired running heroics (lost all interest in ICC).
The date hasn't been changed. He was just flat out wrong and/or given bad info to weed out leaks in the Blizzard machine. The date's been Pearl Harbor Day since the call to arms for Operation Gnomeregan was placed on the official website many, many moons ago.After all, Thermaplugg has eluded death for years to keep his reign over Gnomeregan; and with the fall of the Lich King, the last great threat to the citizens of Azeroth, the chance of any cataclysmic event taking place in the foreseeable future is "less than 12.7%," Mekkatorque's leading combat medical advisor Doc Cogspin purported. Seriously, people are so blind to the obvious sometimes.
blizzard is very sneaky. releasing Cataclysm on Pearl Harbor day. the symbolism is not lost. also Cataclysm will create its own crowds, dont need Black Friday crowds.
not everywhere writes the date backwards, just some European countries. mm/dd/yy people! 10-1-10 is NOT january 10th!
Glad its not november, got me some beaches to lay on and some gt5 to play.
It's funny most of us missed it.
This date seems like it could be an actual release date. However, just the other day, I received an e-mail from amazon saying that my pre-order for Cataclysm would arrive on January 4, 2011 (estimated date.) Just curious to see what you guys think about this vs. this possible release date.
I don't think Blizzard really needs to worry about getting Black Friday crowds to sell copies of WoW. Have you ever been to a midnight expansion release at your local Gamestop/whatever? It's like a Nerd-Black-Friday anyway ;)
All I can say is that they guy in the Arena screenshot is a bit ambitious...only 3 abilities on the bar?
