Please push shadowlands to early 2021. I want this game to be good again. Take as long as you want blizzard. Just don't make another dog*!@# expansion....
You can now log on beta again. There is an update.
I'm not surpised, I'm in the Beta and the game feels far from complete yet. Better to wait and release a good game tha players really like.
I really get the feeling that they are pushing too hard to get into that deadline, they might be not quite ready, but struggling to release it before other big releases in November. Can likely result into bugs and many hotfixes within first weeks.
Honestly WoWhead, the test build is just a debug build for developers to help them to track issues, it means client has some remaining unstability on the release build, and release build has less feedback to provide to them, as it's the binary binary without debug info.Test build is far more slower due to those infos, release is the faster one
...and again loooong time to wait for new content!I don't know why Blizzard still has this problem, that they are not able to bring 'enough' content after 15 years of experience with this game! Look at Final Fantasy 14 and the patch cycle there or Guild Wars 2 with the Living World Updates, which aren't that huge, but still new things, events, achievements to do. The teams there are much smaller than Blizzards WoW-Team, but release more content in shorter update cycles.
Come on, just release the prepatch alone next week...
Been playing since week 1 of beta and honestly the game doesn't feel ready... I'm DYING for new WoW content as I'm so bored on live... But I so desperately want Shadowlands to be good... I genuinely would prefer at this point they delay the release because if the game launches in its current state, it's going to leave a bad first impression to a lot of people, despite how good the expansion turns out to be (providing it is good of course!).
Everyone saying release isn't ready, but I'd rather have pre-patch for longer than continue in this BFA nightmare.
