World of Warcraft’s Legion testing is taking a holiday break, too

I ruined just... all the things.

We hope you weren’t planning on playing any of the World of Warcraft: Legion alpha during your own holiday break (assuming you have one). Blizzard has announced today that the alpha test will be going on break on December 21st, to return sometime early next year. There’s no discussion of whether or not the testing pool will be expanding as well.

World of Warcraft: Legion was announced at Gamescom this year, with a promise of beta later this year; it was later stated that beta would begin in the weeks following BlizzCon. It is worth noting at this point that Blizzard has been very careful to call this build an alpha through its testing.

Eliot_Lefebvre  Why would you think it is you watching the kids???  

How long till Bree can tell them “Honey, watch that man’s screen and if you see pretty elves instead of words please tell Mommy ‘Deadline!'”

bryanjturner Rift aint making anyone look bad. Sorry to say. Bringing up Trion is not the best example..lol. Heck, Rift has one of the worst and sluggish MMO engines out there.

Greaterdivinity DarkWombat It’s one thing when they delay a game that folks aren’t actively
paying for. It’s another when they’re delaying content and abandoning a
live client for a game people are actively paying for.
If anything this makes your argument worse! If there is a content drought, then dont pay! Simple. If you keep paying for something that you don’t like, thats all on you.
Different teams. They should not be having a significant impact on WoW.
Wrong again. This transition has included pulling teams from one protect to another, back and forth. it has affected ALL Blizzard products.

I called Trion the industry standard for sleaze.

ArbsX Eliot_Lefebvre Omedon I’d say you’re right, except that when you promise beta “within weeks” to crowds cheering below you, generally you actually mean for them, not for a tiny alpha for friends and family and press. Unless you mean to mislead them, and I don’t think they did.

Anatidae We will never know. You know, their numbers are so low that they will stop posting their “sub” numbers, while letting multiboxers with over 60 accounts, to ban players from playing the game the right way.

That game is sooo messed up.

Interesting move. Holidays giving people more time to play games. WoW currently suffers from content drought (again). 
I’m sure this won’t hurt their sub even more… right?

DarkWombat Greaterdivinity No they did say Beta 2015, but im guessing it is their own terminology & what they gave out was what they were talking about. So in their mind they live up to what they said. But all the cynical people are freaking out that it is Alpja & not Beta. But if it was Beta they would find something else to complain about.

Blizzard has always been horrid at time estimates with WoW. They always say they want to release expansions faster but each one has been 2 to  2 & 1/2 years from the previous one. It is going to be another 10-12 months before the game is released, a break of a couple of weeks around Xmas for a very early test phase is not that big of a deal.

BrotherMaynard DarkWombat Greaterdivinity Hasn’t this always been what Blizzard does? It isn’t surprising.
