Prepatch Pushed Back

Thank you for posting that. If I can experience the entire expansion before hitting 50 I’m partially happy. I would like to still use Chromie Time with xp cut off but as long as I can experience the entire expansion that is definitely good. WoD is on my list so I guess skip the teasures or bonus objective I don’t know. I just see no point in not allowing the use of it with xp off.

Dev Notes:

Chromie Time was proving too volatile and difficult to work around within the game. To account for this, all clocks (including the UI clock) have been removed and Chromie Time as been changed to Casino Time


What exactly does that mean?

I look at it this way. I always say I have fun in this game no matter what is released in a patch. So I’ll just have to find a way to make Chromie Time work for me if it doesn’t work exactly how I would like.

They might still drop it on the 29th.

We won’t know for sure till the day comes.

The update on the PTR could easily be a temporary state.

This post points to a big “no not this Tuesday” though.


Stupid Dadgar, first he makes me farm extra crystals in legion now he screws up prepatch launch.

Um… wasn’t pre-patch in multiple parts?
Pretty sure they could just be testing the second half.

No, prepatch was all of 9.0.1, 9.0.2 is the prelaunch patch with any fixes, probably put out on the 26th of oct.

We had too many crystals and overloaded the system lol!!

How does one push something back that never had a release date to begin with?

complete tuarendropping!

prepatch is never less than a month, with an exception of one time being 28 days

well, 4 weeks, they even said “prepatches are generally 4-6 weeks” back in july, which is what makes this extra weird.

Mr Bobby is still getting paid the big bux, doesn’t matter whether or not anyone communicates anything. The fewer people he has to pay minimum wage at their dream job the better obviously. :heart:

its not ALL khadgar its certain players who were wiped and blizz restored them and are restoring the last ones it wasnt everyone

It was enough to create major problems.

But then no one expected Trump to win the last election.

I’m very confused as to how people are so excited for a prepatch that has almost no content. Personally looking forward to the actual expansion drop but prepatch doesn’t look any more interesting than live.

Oh I have no idea. I’m fatigued from a loooong day of work and thought that a Chromie Time issue was based around poor cadence of content/timing of when folks move between zones or something. Hence the ‘when you remove all means of measuring time, you’re never out of time’

When I thought it was a smug, cogent remark and instead it’s bunk…

Most of shadowlands development has been spent on cosmetic customization and failing to balance and create interesting abilties, conduits and legendarys.

this expansion is DoA. 2020 has not been an elegant year and why you’d want to shoot yourself in the foot by shipping this mess out in a month is mind-blowing.

SL should have been announced for November; maybe then you’d have a hope of fixing half the stuff.

Sure is nice zoning into dungeons on beta with trash still not spawning and dealing with conduits that have never worked.
