Heh, I've got people in my guild who are absolutely convinced that Cataclysm will hit "In 6 months at the latest", which strikes me as woefully unlikely. Methinks they'll be disappointed.

Meethinks they are spot on. Subscriptions are vastly down across all realms. You can tell by the LFG system and BG ques and by /who XYZ (being raids)....they are just pretty barren.WotLK failed the game big time. They need to get people back ASAP..the longer they are away, the better chance they have of not coming back.

So you want them to release in six months and have another expansion ruined? Sounds like a nice plan. Changes such as cross-server instances or the class changes may come sooner, and I won't be surprised if they do. But the meat of the expansion won't come until next year because let's face it, it doesn't take 6 months to make a game. Not a good one. And not one to the scale they've showed us.Chances are all the expansions started development immediately after the last one was released. So we can probably bet safely that Cataclysm was in development since the start of this year. But do note that people like Ghostcrawler, who also work on the expansion, also work on patches for the live game as well. Making updates to the current version of the game takes time and they lose expansion development time for doing that.Within the next 6-months we will probably see Icecrown Citadel, which is a feat in and of itself since it's going to be big and hopefully have a damn good cinematic at the end. IC isn't some petty boss we farm after a week. This is the LICH KING, who has had multiple games made after him!SO WE WILL FIGHT HIM. AND FARM HIM AFTER TWO WEEKS.

The xpac was stared BEFORE WotLK was...that means they have had 9+ months already and with another 6 like the person said above, a Spring release is highly likely.You do realize they have more then GC working on stuff...he's just the lead but there are a ton of people that do class stuff, along with development.ICC will be out around Nov/Dec...guaranteed.

People acting like they are building the game from ground zero. Not the case, they are modify textures, quests, and the problem area's (Stormwind's Castles illusions). Slog's prediction: 3.3 by xmas, WoW 4.0 by spring (May/June), more than enough time specially since they already have been working on it. And just because 3.3 is only going to be out a few months prior, thats not a "pass-over Arthas" thing. You really think Deathwing is going to wait til we have finished with Arthas to return? Very likely he will strike when we are our weakest (e.g: fighting Arthas).

The crap graphics are what let this game down, unless Blizzard start investing more of their billions into a decent graphics engine, then it's game over.Blizzard just treat us as cash cows, the clocks ticking on WoW Blizzard, better hurry up and give us all some decent 21st century graphics, not the lame out-dated trash we're all getting sick of.Lol and don't say the graphics are ok 'cus they aint, they're bloody awful!
