Damn, it cut off the end of my comment, was going to add that if the release date was changed to November 26 then you could say we'd be getting Mumbai'd instead.

WotLK and BC were both Tuesday releases as well. You'll find that most music, movie and game releases tend to fall on Tuesdays. Look at your weekly Best Buy flyer and you'll see most of the new release items say "Available Tuesday (date)"

...and this is why responding to anything on WoW.com is like responding to a comment on YouTube - filled with a bunch of anonymous kids who like to sound tough (i.e.; Dan)./eyerollWhatever.So, I think I'm more or less done with WoW.com. I'll still make my comics, post on the Sunday Morning Funnies section and reply to comments there, but I think that's about it from me.Good-bye.

The picture on the Wowhead blog is perfect for the 12.7% post. Ghost and, uh, Chilton? laughing away at us. XD"Come on...a TUESDAY???"Why not? The vast majority of new video games are released on Tuesdays. It's not a Blizzard thing, it's an industry thing. It's very common. Plus, as Tinious pointed out, it's patch day. A Tuesday release makes a lot of sense.As for your other concerns about the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, I think Cutaia adequately addressed them. Also, he did so with respect. Dan probably could have showed some more respect as well, but that doesn't make his comment any less accurate either. Indeed, it's sad that you feel the need to sink to the same sort of insulting behavior that you seem to so despise.Regardless, good luck with your comic and I hope you enjoy the new expansion.

"Come on...a TUESDAY???"It's not like its the standard day for new releases in not just the video game industry, but the entire home entertainment industry.Oh wait. It is.Besides, even if you want to go for the Pearl Harbor reference, it'd just mean that Deathwing's emergence was a poorly-timed attack that consequently missed the most important targets. (The US carriers were the primary target at Pearl Harbor, and none were at Pearl during the attack, a fact that sorely bit the Japanese in the buttocks at both Coral Sea and Midway when those same carriers destroyed the majority of the Japanese carrier fleet.)

"Ok lets pay off those bets now folks.http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/09/02/the-queue-predicting-the-cataclysm-release-date/comments/30206389/I take cash, checks and credit cards. But not Discover." Damn you, Cutaia. That link also contains my highly incorrect release date guess. I guess I'm not very good at detecting these things :(

Well...maybe I'm just caught in a "moody Monday" - I am, after all, just getting over being very ill and was wonderfully awakened early this morning by the roofers banging their hammers, ladders and materials directly overhead.I think I just need to un-plug for a bit, and I'm sorry if I came off sounding like a total prat.Still, Dan could use some lessons in being couth.Also, I honestly didn't know that Tuesday is a traditional date for movie/video game release.So, this is me...un-plugging for a bit. Time to work on the comic for Wednesday anyway :-)

Also lets not forget that even though Dec 7th is the release date for Cata, Blizzard has said the Cataclysm will happen a bit before the xpac is released to give people time to explore what has happened. So in a way the massive loss of (digital) life will not happen on Dec 7.

"Come on...a TUESDAY???"Generally, movie, music and game releases come out on Tuesdays. Every once in a while you'll have an oddball item come out on a Friday, but Tuesdays have been the release date for Home media for a very long time.

I gotta admit.I'm not in favor of a Dec 7th release date for Cataclysm.Dec. 7 is a bad day, I'm sure its entirely coincidental.I would release 5 minutes early at 11:55 the 6th .The 6th is the release day. To do it on the 7th feels wrong to me.
