This sounds completely reasonable. 8.1.5 may be a bit later in the month, which may push the rest back a smidge but still.r
r
8.1.5 is going along super smoothly too. It’s actually fairly packed for being the second update. Really just need to finish up the races.

I donu00b4t think 8.1.5 will be there March the 5th but more late March – mid April. And 8.2 more around mid June.

July 16th sound like a better date for 8.2 because calendar has no events that tuesday, 8.1 launched when there was no events iirc as well. Uldir was up for 19/20 weeks or something like that, so not sure if we can say / predict it’ll be 11 week cycles for future raids.

So your math is off by a year. Every WoW expansion has had content that wasn’t available upon launch. We didn’t walk into Icecrown on WotLK launch day. Why is this suprising to so many people? I think lettting the narrative develop in game is better than just an offscreen ‘oh look, these people are your friends now’. Activision/Blizzard doesn’t have enything to do with Blizzard’s pacing of the feature.

You already have five out of six of the races originally announced. As for Ztrolls, they decided it would fit the story better to release them with KT instead. r
r
Sorry, but just because you pay a sub doesn’t mean you can decide when they should do anything. You can decide how happy or unhappy you are about it, of course, but at the end of the day it’s Blizzard’s game, not yours. r
r
And yes, Blizzard should try to keep their customers happy. But they have a lot of customers, and I think most don’t even post here or even on the forums. So who knows how they actually feel about it. r
r
But I’m pretty sure Blizzard has a lot more data than you do.

Although that’s all true, player perception is that new races and new classes are released on launch of the expac, along with talents, new zones, new levels, etc. And that’s because … Well it’s always been like this. When the Zandalari were announced, nothing was said that ever hinted at it being released so far down the line. I, along most people I would guess, understood it would come a few weeks after launch. And since then … We’ve just been waiting. r
r
The problem here, as usual, is the lack of communication from Blizzard. They could just have told us “It’s coming in a later patch” instead of just saying “No information at the moment” for 9 months.

So Zandalari/Kul Tirans will drop just about the same time that the dreadwake subscriptions are running out.r
r
What a coincidence.

Uh, to be fair to Blizzard here … Yeah no !@#$ they’re releasing content when people are unsubbing. What are you complaining about? They’re not gonna release everything day one and nothing for two years -.-r
r
Also the “Dreadwake subscription” has existed for years, the only difference is that now you get a mount with the 6 month subscription, which you didn’t have before. Personnally makes me really happy, I’ve been subbed non stop since Wod (played since Vanilla but stopped periodically in Cataclysm and Mop), but always paid per month because “you never know”. Well, the mount made me purchase the 6 months all at once. I’m not planning on stopping anytime soon, it makes me pay less, and I get a cool mount, why should I complain?

100% True.
And to be fair the quality of these races widely differs so much, that one is actually kinda frowning alot about.
And to be fair we rescued talanji and protected Dazar’alor already by a big deal, we saved kultiras already from multiple enemies and reunited the family…
So yeah now this “new” we need to make friends first is totally made up BS of all the protectionistic fanboys.
That book was closed wit 8.0.1 and 8.1 at least should have opened with us having them.

Sure you got your DK not gifted at WOTLK but it was not in the middle of the expansion either. So lets be realistic.
Its the communication that is lacking, but its also the trust of customers that was slightly mislead and played with…
Besides these races are in quite the same state as they are in now for months…nearly nothing new, just balancing issues…that are actually in generel quite strong with all AR so far.

so arround May we can start speculating about the next set of Allied Races (hopefully a certain Fox Race from Vol’dun and well who knows what else).r
Let’s just hope that we don’t have to wait till Patch 8.3.5 to get the last Allied Races relevant to Battle for Azeroth as a Preorder Bonus for the next Expac, that would be a long time to wait.r
r
Or till BlizzCon 2019

3.1.5 is certainly not comming next week, they usually have 2 weeks of lead up time on patch announcements. And it doesnt look like they are finished adding content, nor balancing it.

I paid $70 for some reskinned races and havenu2019t gotten them yet, the major selling point of BfA for me. If this were any other purchase, this wouldnu2019t be okay so why are the majority of you nerds alright with it? u201cYes sir, this is the finest vehicle money can buy. It has everything, even a self driving feature!u201d Ahh but wait. You have to wait five months to be told that itu2019s speculated that it may coming in a few more months. No. No, itu2019s not acceptable. Iu2019d also like for the dev team to quit getting on a webcam and speaking to the community in such a condescending tone.

Dont be silly, you already gotten 6 out of 8 the races. Your complaint has no legs to stand on.
