"This suggests to me that they think there's a decent chance patch 3.2 will come out less than a month from now."No it doesn't.Bornakk's post says:1) We'll give you a month warning.2) We might allow you a smattering of gear from 3.2, but don't think we are going to let you farm the Coliseum and still get the rewards from Ulduar.He then doesn't say anything to the effect of: "So get a move on those drakes." Nor does he even vaguely hint at it. If anything, it's a lot more likely that when the patch gets closer, they'll say: "Drakes to be removed in a month", letting people that are close finish and perhaps -- and this is hardly gamebreaking -- get a piece or two of extra gear in order to do it. Such a change would satisfy the vast, vast majority of us who are feeling the tightness of the time schedule and yet understand that the rewards are going to be scarce. (And, yes, my guild got both from the Tier 7 cycle, when the 10-man one was arguably similarly hard, unlike now.)I could read his post and say, "It shows they don't have any clue at all when 3.2 is shippping". My interpretation feels a lot closer than yours. And, regardless, isn't wishing thinking but more a, "history backs up what I'm saying' kind of thing.

Damn Mark a little harsh don't you think? I agree with you and with what Bornakk says but did you have to present it that way? I'm all for proving your point if your view is contested but you didn't even present it in a way to give anyone a chance to say you were wrong. Lay off Eliah he was just reporting what he read and then voiced his opinion. he didn't say it was a fact.

@Nick Wwhen someone says something as stupid as Eliah did, what do you expect for a response? Saying 3.2 will drop within a month is dumb enough, but then trying to justify the reasoning with 'If they knew it was going to come out later, they'd just give the one month warning a month before they expected the patch to drop.' is just idiotic.

There's another good reason why it won't come in a month nor why it won't be removed soon:None of the guild, not even Ensidia has that achievement yet, as far as I know. Some of them are very VERY hard. Sure Ensidia might get that achievement next week, but Blizz surely wants more than just one guild to get it. Heck even if they want 0.5% percent of WoW population to get it, we're still talking about hundreds of guilds worldwide. So yeah, they're not taking it away soon.

I think the reason why Mark was probably so harsh is that wow.com / WoW Insider has a long, long, long history of making crazy statements predicting that patches might come out far earlier than is even remotely possible.Eventually you go from saying "uh, no, that won't happen" to being a little harsher.
