About how "3.9" could refer to the last patch before 4.0:Blizzard seems to do their patch numbers not as decimals, but as individual numbers. For example, patch a.b.c would mean something along the lines of Version A, Patch B, Subpatch C, where Version 1 = vanilla, Version 2 = BC, etc. Every time a new expansion is released, the version number goes up by 1 and the patch and subpatch numbers are reset; every time a new patch is released, the patch number goes up by 1 and the subpatch number is reset.While I do think that it is strange that the URL has 3p9 in it, I think it might be intended to mean 3.3.9, and not 3.9.x or "the very last patch before 4.0"

I think your a bit off there.I think it's VersionA.ContentPatchB.MinorPatchCThat would explain why the current live version is 3.3.2We are in Version 3(Wrath), Content Patch 3 (ICC), Minor Patch 2 (Class changes/bugs/other little stuff)They put 3p9 (stands for 3.9) because they are not sure if they want to release any more Minor Patches to change classes or other little things before patch 4.0

Er...nm I miss read what you where saying. XD I pretty much restated what you did beside the last bit.And I see your point of the 3.9 versus 3.3.9.Either way, I think they where just giving themselves room and it still implies the last patch before 4.0
