Blizzard doesn't do that for a very specific reason.If they announced the patch is being released on X date, a portion of their 5 million US and EU customers would disappear until that date. Since the game is loot centric knowing that better loot is coming for sure in 2 months, more than a few people will disappear for awhile until said loot is ready. Now, its one of those carrot on a stick in a hamster wheel thing. The date for the patch is not really known so people stick around just in case we get surprised, enough we've all gotten good at least at pinning down a rough estimate.For EVE, since its not so much loot centric, they can announce these patches ahead of time because the community is smaller and more dynamic than WoWs.
