Some of us need an expansion release date...

    Some of us have jobs where we have to request our PTO days off in advance.

    Some of us have jobs where only a certain amount of employees can be off that day.

    Some of us have already used our sick days and cannot just call in sick on an expansion day.

    Some of us only have a few vacation days left.

    Some of us like to plan things in advance.

    Some of us want to play on opening day of a new expansion.

    Some of us are hoping a red name can throw a date in this thread so some of us can request that day off before others jump in front of them.

    Some of us hold out hope that a date will be given soon and not Soon(tm).

    I would not expect any news until mid to late October which is when they tend to announce such things in recent past.

    CoV: Expansion announced October 14th
    ToV: Expansion announced October 16th

    Man I am so there. I hear you Cicelee. I once booked a WEEK off YEARS ago when I knew a new expansion was coming. Man that sound (DING) when you finally get a new level after so long at being at 99.9999999 and max everything. October it is!

    Some of us understand that they don't plan their releases around our raid guild obsessions.

    Folks are hitting 120 on the first day anyways, and many will finish all content progression the same day, or the day after, as well. Big whoop!

    who wants to play in a new expansion on day of release ? the lag fest is usually intolerable and the bugs from quests are usually really bad .. I like to wait a few days maybe even a week or 2 before i venture into the new zones ..

    however , knowing ahead of time does help plan days off and budgets to pay for said expansions..

    I could care less when it is released. Release it in February if they want to.

    I am just asking that if they know the release date today, why wait to announce it? It would be nice to take a day or two off of work and be part of Day 1 excitement, but unfortunately for most of us we have jobs where we just can't come and go whenever we please. Some of us require planning and early communication with our employers... probably most of us.

    Now if they don't know the release date, that is fine. Just let us know. "We will be making an announcement in mid October about the release date".

    Just something besides silence.

    Just like the last two expansions. No issue here.

    Just would be a nice for communication when they internally know the release date to share that with the community. I guess I don't see why you would hold onto that information and keep it private.
  14. demi Augur

    cause if they say a date and it doesnt happen then the community would be all bent out of shape .. and demand bonuses :p

    like if they said december 15th and it was pushed to the 26th and everyone put in for their vacation or sick time(pto) for 15th they would be pissed ..

    The last couple of preorders havent had a firm date on them just December 2020 and December 2021. The day wasn't released until after beta had started.

    Good luck to those that still care about it, retirement has been blissful.

    I have some questions about stocks I'd like to ask.

    No one plays on release day - its too crowded.
