Maybe console players will help testing this time, then we're good


And fairies, and other mythical creatures


But they can't make the game better, console players can so we can have even more removal of abilities and more passives
That doesnt sound good, im sure the devs arent happy about it but i guess some higher up in management just cant wait a little longer before getting the cash from the expansion -_-

BfA doesnt look that ready for launch at this point, oh well, not like i wont be ultra hyped and enjoy it anyway

Well, alpha doesn't mean much though. Legion alpha was only interesting because of the artifact weapon questlines. If the beta will be the same, which has a huge portion of the content, then yeah, we can start worrying.


Legion alpha was miles ahead compared to BfA alpha. They just released a bare bones Heart of Azeroth where as we had access to the 34 traits to the artifact weapons by now. We could also test some of the early endgame content in Legion during the early alpha.


Yeah, they released really interesting things in Legion alpha testing but i think they thought they had to after an expansion like WoD where more than half of the playerbase gave up on sitting in their garrisons doing nothing. Just to hype it up even more.

So BfA August 14th, must be a short beta.


I suspect Alpha is the new Beta. This Beta has been more stable and complete than any Beta's I've played in the past.

More likely we will have a Charlie build in May/June.
Too soon. So much still to do so little time. Too many characters but I'd miss them if I didn't have them.
For me it sounds like they have allready give up the expansion... basically like WoD2.0

A lot of stuff feel unfinished or missing.... when we keep in mind that they also need to balance things.... OH boy...

It is just me or this expansion looks small and empty. To me it looks like a big patch than a expansion.

I think it is the first time in my wow life I am not hyper etc.
It is small and empty, and that´s exactly what they are shooting for as well.

In an alternate universe, this is Blizzard's way of bringing retail WoW to an end and starting fresh with World of Warcraft Classic, moving forward and fixing the mistakes they made along the way.

not happing in realworld, would loose to many players and money.

im hyped for expansion, azashare, zandalari, some old god stuff, and the Island expeditions look fun.
I honestly think it could very well be better then legion(best thing about legion overall was the tmog change tbh)

No they couldnt lmao
For the first few months of Alpha, only a few classes were even available, a dozen artifacts at most. There was months dedicated to pure artifact testing.
Is release for US or EU on 14.08? Because if it is for US it means it is 15.08 for EU.
I've been going around Boralus and it's like: walk ten steps, report the bug I see, walk another ten steps, and another bug reported. I've reported errors in the text of quests too (words misspelled, missing or funky). There's a few NPCs whose appearance was odd or who behaved like they'd been hypnotised into zombies. Was doing the alpha testing for the ten days vacation. I think I reported at least a hundred bugs going around Boralus.

Hilarious when you can fall through the world running over water on a water mount. Reported that too.

And oh boy, oh boy, with all that supposed updated landscape graphics, when you go to certain places, they have lego landscape (or perhaps Minecraft inspired landscape) going on (north west side of Drustvar). Also reported...

Nevermind the quests, there's buildings, landscape, trees and water that all is either broken, looking odd or downright unfinished looking.

I guess no vacations and double duty for all developers to get this right, or else the game will fall flat and it will not be a good experience. I think the August release date is WRONG for all these reasons.

An 18.09.2018 (or using the US format 09.18.18) would have sounded so much better on all the marketing paperwork. And it would have given them FIVE weeks more to sort out the bugs. I guess this will be the date I'll start playing...after two or three huge patches to FIX all the bugs that were left in the live version launched in August. No amount of suggestions in any Q&A will convince me that the August release date was a good one...

You wanted the feedback, Ion, am I right...? Well here's mine to consider.
