I hate to say it, but the late patches of BFA proved that they now have the will and the way to keep builds (or at least selected details of said builds) from the datamining circuit that, if we're being blunt, we don't have a right to. Yes, I know it postpones hype, but if you're gonna play shadowlands (and most of us will), reasonable people are not gonna change their mind based on... not having access to an alpha that we have no entitlement to access. Beta may be the earliest we see this. At all. And we don't really have a leg to stand on except understandably sour grapes based on precedent.
I ain't a streamer and I got alpha and beta access from WoD to BFA. Maybe they prefer people who actually do their job as alpha/beta players over people who just frig around?
Tick tock Blizzard.Tick.Tock.
Reminded, Alpha isn't a chance to see new content, nor is Beta, you're supposed to be testing and figuring out bugs. Too many people just want to rush in and look at all the new stuff then by the time the game comes out, end up burnt out. Alpha testing is for testing. Beta testing is for testing.
Respectfully Shadowlands needs to be postponed, and not just because of Covid-19. Blizzard needs to do Shadowlands right, not make the same mistakes like they did with BFA and Warcraft III Reforged. I ask everyone here, do you want a semi-finished product with a mountain of bugs or a complete and fully finished product done right?
Can't wait for Beta for Azeroth to be over and Alphalands to be here.
almost 300 builds in a short time. It can happen anytime now.
Interesting that they are still waiting with releasing the Alpha, now my hopes (And this is purely speculation) is that they've already got people within the "Blizzard circle" testing it out'n'all that good stuff, so when it actually launches as an Alpha build for the public it's gonna be a bit more "pleasant" than BfA where. My assumption is that after this expansion Blizz really want to please people (or at least i hope so) cause BfA sorta left allot of people with a sour taste in their mouths..So sure, take your time blizz.. Heck, i would even be ok with them delaying the expansion for the sake of polish, but that's not gonna happen since they allowed pre-purchases so early, meaning a delay would put them in a world of legal hurt and probably lawsuits.. A shame really.. But hey, tis their fault for pumping out Pre-purchases as early as they did, and sadly i suspect that was done to inflate the stock market of the company, and not to please the fans/gamers...I've been going on for a while now, so here, have a Giraffe -- /)/) - ( ..\ - /'-._) -/#/ /#/ Love: -Moth-
