"This equates to admitting that they do not intent for content to be perfect on first release. It should work bug-free, ideally, and be balanced fairly well, but new raid content liek Ulduar is also an opportunity for study."Other than the obvious spelling issues, I don't take the same point away from GC's statement. PC software is notorious for the "ship it now, patch it later," but I think the statement Blizzard doesn't *intend* for content to be perfect on first release is an oversimplification. As for D33Zy: Saying it's all one big beta is just being childish.Not subscribing to fanboyism, but I believe Blizzard take a more realist vice idealist stance. As with any system, changes can be amplified or dampened unexpectedly, and I take blue posts more as, "things work like how we want them to now. Ulduar/3.1 might change that depending on fights/gear," and those will in turn need incremental adjustments. I think they *do* publish content with the intent of it being as good as it can get, but an internal check of maybe a hundred people at most (who are often so mired in the development they have difficulty taking a fresh look) compared to thousands of people who are willing to datamine and look for exploits for free before the patch is "official"? Why would you not do the latter? If you don't like PTR's, then don't do them.
