And that becomes the real balancing act the whole dev team has to deal with, and at some point they have to sacrifice content for timing. Imagine what three or four more months of development would have done for Wrath. While something as massive as an AN questing zone probably couldn't have been implemented in 3-4 months, a lot of these loose ends could have been tied up, like giving Crystalsong a reason to exist.Yet BC was rapidly winding down, despite the best efforts of 2.4, and there was only so long they could wait to release the next expansion before everyone got sick of Outland and left WoW.We're kind of at the same junction now, with Cata on the horizon. This is another reason why I'm pretty okay with the gating of content in ICC, because pushing deadlines back and killing time by Blizz (while it sucks) means less things have to get cut, and I'd rather wait an extra couple months then have to read a similar article about Cata in 2011.
