Damn you pvpers!
Well crap, I thought I'd have more time to pull 2200 rating out of my backside. I promised myself I wasn't going to let that gorgeous Season 14 Elite Hunter set pass me by.
Longer wait time for WoD...? As a person who barely PvP's and can't wait for WoD, pretty disapointed...
Seems strange that Blizzard decided to split up the end of expansion PvP season into two separate seasons, something they haven't done since BC. Maybe they just want to use the Prideful Gladiator gear that they had previously put in the game files.For Wrath and Cata, the final PvP season lasted about as long as the final patch:- Wrath - 37 weeks- Cata - 38 weeksHopefully Blizzard will stick to this precedent and the two final PvP seasons in Mists will last about the same amount of time as the final seasons in Wrath & Cata meaning that:- 37 weeks = Warlords pre-patch release on June 3- 38 weeks = Warlords pre-patch release on June 10
Obviously WoD is significantly delayed. It's a bummer, but certainly not a surprise.
Re surprises: meant we'd maybe be getting a raid like Ruby Sanctum or a meatier interim content patch, in spite of the announcement at BlizzCon that there was no 5.5. WoD at BlizzCon had a ton of data changes, getting an expansion that complex out sooner than expected doesn't seem feasible.
FYI - Holinka just tweeted the following:"@MikeGiraldi Trying to break the trend of long seasons to end the expac. People reading waaaaay to much into it."in response to:"@holinka How long can we expect the current season to last as it's already been 16 weeks and end of expac seasons tend to go 30+ weeks?"https://twitter.com/holinka/status/420967419843461120So it may not be much of a delay, if at all.
Seems like there are some relatively simple things they could put in a 5.4.x that would keep PvE players busy too, like Raiding With Leashes III.
A lot of people at BlizzCon assumed that WoD would be unusually fast, since we'd gotten used to quick content patches and it was stated that WoD at BlizzCon was farther along than MoP was at BlizzCon. So even if Season 14 and Season 15 are on the short side like I mentioned in the article, I think it's still a surprise to some people that there was a need for a Season 15 in the first place.There should be an official blog at some point that hopefully can clarify things :)
I suspect there are many like I who are just getting started on Normal progression (even in Flex, there sure seem to be many still on the Legendary line)... this is good for us because it means we can at least get well geared before WoD hits.
Yay more time to do flex with my guild :)
yall need to have it to where un non pvpers can do other stuff to get like that cloak and etc and future questlines plz do something for pve players like that plzzzzz
June would mean 10 months of patch 5.4. Not surprising, certainly, being guided by experience. But still a major bummer.
